Wakefield Kitchen and Bath Contractor
Even in a down economy, the desire for kitchen and bath remodeling doesn’t go away — especially if you’ve “had it” with cabinets that are old, falling apart and out of style.
If you’re feeling the itch to fix up your home, you’re not alone. About 5 percent of adults 18 and older planned to spend their tax rebate checks on home improvement projects and repairs, according to the findings of a National Retail Federation survey, conducted by BIGresearch. In fact, more people said they intended to spend on home improvements than those who intended to pay medical bills (4.6 percent), vacation and travel (4.3 percent), clothing (3.2 percent) or electronics (3.1 percent).
Many consumers can and will afford to maintain the value of their homes. Whether it means replacing a 20-year-old sink faucet or gutting the kitchen, owners will strive to upkeep their homes for financial and personal reasons, according to consumer research firm Iconoculture.
Fashionable kitchen and bath multi-taskers
When choosing cabinets, it’s also important to look behind the doors, since many have built-in organizational features. For example, a cabinet with a multi-functional interior can cover a lot of bases in your kitchen. After all, there’s only so much space to work with, and so many groceries, pots and pans, small appliances and storage containers that need to be stashed somewhere.
If your bath is bursting with towels, or if your home doesn’t have a linen closet, another hard-working multi-tasker is a linen closet cabinet. At 18-inches wide, it fits in many bathrooms. In addition to providing storage for towels, it keeps laundry out of sight with a glide-out wire basket covered with a stylish canvas liner. Another space saver is a vanity pullout to organize smaller bathroom items. Both are available in a variety of attractive door styles to give your bath a fashionable face-lift.
Ensure long-lasting cabinet performance.
Cabinetry isn’t something you buy every day, so if you want to ensure its long-lasting performance, ask your Wakefield kitchen contractor about construction upgrades. You can opt for sturdier grades of wood for the shelving or drawers, or even slam-proof door mechanisms to eliminate unnecessary noise and ensure longer cabinet life.
