My Remodeling Goal

Our remodeling goal was to create a sleek, contemporary, environmentally-friendly kitchen. Green building material and non-toxic finishes were selected in building custom Bamboo cabinetry with black quartz countertops. Outdated appliances were replaced with energy-saving state-of-the-art stainless appliances, and a new polished porcelain tile floor was installed. The smoke-colored glass door, cook top splash, and accent shelf were all installed using recyclable glass. We achieved our goal by designing a kitchen that contributes to the preservation of our environment and to our enjoyment.



Tips and Advice from My Remodeling Experience

An important remodeling tip is to research products and materials before you select them by visiting showrooms, checking the Internet, and looking through magazines to gather ideas. It is wise to check references, licenses and insurance coverage for all contractors and workers. Our remodel was completed without any major problems, and the craftsmanship is superb. If you can do your own designing, contracting and some of the work yourself, you will save yourself a considerable amount of money.
