While your space needs to be a combination of both form and function, it also needs to speak to who you are. Don’t be afraid to take some risks. When you are designing an interior space, try to consider all the elements within the room. Natural stone, furnishings, paint, fabrics should have a harmonious feel in both style and color.  Today’s color trends of grays and whites are still going strong, and light-colored stone countertops coordinate well with those shades. Lighter tiles also pair well with darker cabinets for a high-contrast look and serve as a nice backdrop for the strategic use of color in fabrics and accessories.

Meeder Design & Remodeling adds instant distinction to your newly remodeled kitchen.

Wheaton IL Kitchen Remodeling 60189 Kitchen and bathroom remodeling trends:

  1. Color: earth tones and Gray. For cabinets, classic white has made a big comeback.
  2. Flooring: The natural look of wood is in. Luxury vinyl plank flooring looks like wood, but resists moisture; a plus in kitchens and bathrooms. In baths, wood-look ceramic tile also is popular.
  3. Tile: Large tiles, 2 by 2 feet are popular. Same with mosaic, glass and stone.
  4. Countertops: Engineered quartz and solid surfaces that look like marble or granite (but are easier to maintain) are becoming the norm.
  5. Appliances: Stainless steel accounts for three out of every four new appliances.
  6. Extras: LED lighting under cabinets. Wine refrigerators. Specialized built-in upgrades for recycling, baking station,  and computer space, etc.

People are asking for room for two in bathtubs and showers, and dual sinks in the vanity for more of a a spa experience at home. They are asking for a new look, but they do not want to move.

This is peak home remodeling season

Some customers are updating their homes so that they will not need to move later in life with modifications as roll-in showers and hand-held shower heads.

For recent home buyers, kitchen makeovers are a top priority

Grace, Comfort, and Refinement in Kitchen Remodeling by Meeder.

Some of the biggest line items on a kitchen makeover are

  1. Cabinetry (30% of a typical budget)
    $8,000 to $15,000:
    Replacing existing appliances,
    refinishing existing cabinet doors,
    resurfacing existing countertops.
  2. Appliances (15%)
    $25,000 to $50,000:
    Demolishing the kitchen but keeping main appliance and plumbing fixtures in the same location.
    new cabinets
    appliances
    countertops
    flooring
    lighting
    plumbing fixtures
  3. Countertops (10%)
    $50,000 to $100,000:
    Same as above while also reconfiguring the appliance and plumbing fixtures as well as electrical and HVAC.

How to save money on your kitchen remodeling project

  • Face-lift vs. gut renovation: Avoid replacing cabinets as even a midrange option can run you $3,500 to $5,500.
    Face-lifts should be confined to painting cabinets and updating hardware and lighting.
  • Appliance package: stick with the basics on appliances.
  • Plan ahead: Poor planning that leads to contractors waiting for something like a sink to arrive will send you over budget.

What is the return on investment on a kitchen remodel?  You will get some of that money back when you decide to sell your home, because your home will stand out compared to others with older kitchen designs.

Looking to get the most bang for your buck on a kitchen remodel?

Avoid the biggest budget mistakes.

  1. Changing your mind after the project has started can drive your budget up an average of 10 percent.
  2. Try to spend a little longer on the design and stick to that plan no matter what.
  3. 3D drawings can help you visualize the space before you start your project. Don’t rely on rough sketches.
  4. Do not overpay for high-end materials.
  5. Do not use exotic marble for less expensive, low-maintenance quartz countertops.
  6. You can get the look of hardwood floors for half the price with more durable, porcelain tile that looks like real wood.
  7. Save room in the budget for things like a range hood to keep your kitchen well-ventilated, under-cabinet lighting to ease food preparation, and improved storage, like drawers in the base units.

It’s also important to hire accredited contractors like Meeder, that are experienced at holding down costs on remodeling projects when unexpected problems crop up.

Evoke the feel of a rich elegance with Meeder Design & Remodeling.

From cabinetry to countertops, take a free online course that walks you through the kitchen remodeling process before you begin remodeling.

“Dream. Plan. Do. – The Inspired Kitchen,” hosted by Scott McGillivray and Jane Lockhart, provides advice and insights from a contractor and a designer’s point of view.

Assisted by Jane Lockhart, a leading Toronto designer, McGillivray teaches us what to expect in your kitchen remodeling project.  They cover planning, designing, and completing a kitchen remodel project from scratch. This includes everything from properly planning to cabinetry, countertops, and lighting.

If you begin a kitchen remodel without knowing what you want to do—even if you work with a contractor, designer, or architect—you’ll get the kitchen they want, not the one you want, says McGillivray, adding, “The more prepared and savvy you are, the less it’s going to cost you.”

The video is available at CambriaUSA.com/DreamPlanDo.
