If you’re wondering what a certain design would look like in person, you can always come by our showroom in Fishkill, NY, to view a variety of products and design options. After you’ve found a style you like, you can talk with one of our kitchen design experts to get the remodel started. We’ll help you choose everything from new cabinets to new countertops, and we’ll also provide you with a free, no-obligation quote for the project. Our remodeling company will get started after you’ve approved the designs, products, and timeline!
What Is The Kitchen Work Triangle?
The kitchen work triangle is one of the most important elements in any kitchen remodel. The triangle is formed by the refrigerator, the stove, and the kitchen sink, and the basic idea is that these appliances should be set up in a way that maximizes efficiency. You want to be able to move quickly between these three areas when you’re cooking or cleaning up after a meal, but you also want to ensure that there’s enough counter space between them to allow for food preparation.
Can I Reuse My Existing Cabinets?
Yes, you can use your current cabinets in a kitchen remodel. If all you’re doing is installing new appliances or granite countertops, then it might make sense to keep your current cabinets in place. However, the style of your current cabinets can constrain your design options, and if you plan on replacing your cabinets at some point in the future, then you should consider making all of the changes at once. Doing so will allow you to design a more cohesive and integrated kitchen, and you also won’t have to go through the kitchen remodeling process twice.
How Much Of A Return On My Investment Can I Expect?
As we noted in one of our previous blog posts, kitchen remodeling is one of the best investments you can make in your home. The current return on investment rate is somewhere between 80 and 92 percent, depending on the style and the products you choose. For example, if you invested $25,000 and recouped 85 percent of your investment, the true cost of your kitchen remodel would be $3,750, as $21,250 would be going back into your wallet after selling your home. Our kitchen design experts are more than happy to help you find products and designs that will help you maximize the return on your investment.
