Kitchen Cabinet Installers and where to find them

Kitchen Cabinet Installer Columbus Dublin Worthington Ohio

Looking for Kitchen Cabinet Installers in your area? It’s best to use the same company to measure, build and install your kitchen cabinetry.

The options are seemingly endless when you’re shopping for cabinetry for a kitchen or bathroom remodel. Manufacturers sell cabinets through a retail network including building supply stores, kitchen and bath retailers and home improvement centers, such as Lowes and Home Depot.

It’s advisable to enlist the same company to measure, design, purchase and install cabinetry, whether you buy through a big box store or a custom cabinet maker. “The most important thing is to allow the same person or company who designs the cabinets to also install them,” says Ohio-based builder Alex. “If you don’t and mistakes are made, installation costs quickly go way up. If you come across a cabinet maker who does not install, go with another company.”

“Measurements are so important. Just an inch is enough to throw off the fit,” says home improvement center specialist. “It’s important and convenient to let your retailer take the measurements, design the plan and handle the install. This ensures you won’t be responsible for any measurement or other oversights.”

Once ordered, the turnaround time for kitchen cabinetry can be anywhere from one day to several months. Semi-custom orders take around six weeks to arrive and stock cabinetry delivery time is minimal, often with same day delivery. Plan on eight weeks or more for custom cabinetry. After the shipment arrives, ensure cabinets match the bill of sale.

“Installation methods vary from installer to installer but walls should be straight and primed, floors flat and everything square,” Alex says. Cabinet doors and drawers should be removed before installation and appliances to be installed should be on-site, in case any adjustments are necessary.

Installing new Kitchen Cabinets

Replacing existing cabinets is a serious endeavor, and one that should be carried out by a professional or a seasoned do-it-yourselfer. Removing existing kitchen cabinets is at least a two-man job, as cabinets and countertops can be extremely heavy and bulky.

If you plan to reuse the cabinets or countertops in some fashion, it’s vital to take extra care so you don’t damage the materials upon removal. Also, in the case of a DIY project, take special care so you don’t damage any of the surroundings that are to be salvaged, such as flooring, trim and walls.

When purchasing new cabinets, decide if you have the skill level and desire to do the job yourself or to have the cabinets installed professionally. Consider the amount of time available to finish the project, as well as the cost.

The average installation cost ranges from $131 to $198 per cabinet. Depending on material, countertops can cost from $4 to $200 per square foot. Stone and laminate countertops are an affordable option, while stainless steel or copper countertops are used in more high-end kitchen remodels.

Putting a fresh face on your kitchen is one of the best home investments you can make, whether that’s a complete kitchen remodel or just cabinet refacing. However, you should limit any project cost to no more than 20 percent of your home’s value. Kitchen investments come with about an 85 percent return on investment.

Wood Kitchen Cabinets

Get the information you need on the different types of materials used in wood kitchen cabinet remodel.

When preparing to renovate a kitchen or install a new one, you’ll need to decide on your kitchen cabinet materials. You can choose from a wide range of materials, and wood kitchen cabinets are among the most popular.

The most common material used in kitchen cabinetry today is wood. Wood is a popular choice due to the numerous finishes available, allowing you to create a truly customized kitchen.

Once you have settled on wood kitchen cabinets, your next choice will be to determine the type of wood you use. Because wood is a natural product, it will vary in texture, color and grain. It may also change over time because of its exposure to sunlight.

Cherry is one of the most popular woods used in cabinets because of its medium reddish brown color and its uniform grain color. It also is more expensive than some other types of wood.

Maple is also a popular wood option. It is lighter than cherry but has a smoother texture and thus is an ideal wood for painted or stained finishes.

If you want a more prominent grain pattern in your kitchen cabinets, you might choose red oak. It has a lighter brown color and is rich in texture with a distinctive pattern of grain that many homeowners like.

If you are looking for a more affordable wood option, you may choose pine for your cabinets. Pine is a budget-friendly natural wood material. It provides a distinctively rustic look that is popular in a more traditional or country kitchen design. Pine is a softer wood, however, and may dent or scratch more easily than some other woods.

On the opposite end of the budget, mahogany is the wood that is known as the premier wood for fine cabinetry. It has a deep rich reddish-brown color and a characteristic swirling grain that produces an attractive design; it polishes to a high luster. Because this species of wood is becoming increasingly more rare and because it proves to be extremely durable, it is priced significantly higher than the more common woods such as pine and oak.

When you’ve determined the type of wood you prefer, you’ll have to decide whether you want stock or custom wood cabinets. Stock cabinets can be purchased fully pre-fabricated and are the least expensive option for purchasing wood kitchen cabinets. Custom cabinets are the most expensive option but give you the most creative freedom in your design. With custom cabinets you may even be able to choose more than one wood option, thus making your kitchen a true reflection of your unique taste and design aesthetic.

Choose Your Own Spring Cleaning Plan

black-kitchen-design-countertops-with-ice-white-shaker-style-kitchen-cabinets-spring cleaning

Instead of trying to do it all — and ending up doing nothing — pick a spring cleaning approach that suits your motivation

The thought of spring cleaning can be as entrancing as a fairy tale — but getting through a giant list of tasks while having a busy life can be just as unrealistic as a cheerful Snow White twirling about in the forest, with birds tweeting and helping sweep with brooms in their little beaks. The key to successful spring cleaning, then, is to not try to do it all. Instead, pick from one of these six themes for your spring cleaning — and focus your energy where it will count. And if you decide to put on music, fling open the windows and twirl around with your mop, we won’t tell.

Spring cleaning focus: Bust dust and clutter. This can be a satisfying plan to follow because when you’re done, your home should be noticeably cleaner and less cluttered. Start with clutter clearing, because the less stuff is in your way, the easier it will be to clean surfaces. Just don’t consider the decluttering done until you have actually removed the items you don’t want from your home; otherwise, it will have a way of working itself back into your closets, cupboards and drawers. If you know you will have many items to donate (especially if some of them are furniture) call around in advance and see if a local charitable organization will do a pickup — having a pickup scheduled can be a good way to get motivated to get the work done.

For any clutter-clearing endeavor to be a success, it’s best to get the other members of your household onboard. Ideally, each person would be responsible for decluttering his or her own belongings — at the very least, try to garner some support for your clutter-clearing efforts and encourage people to pitch in as they can. In each space (room, closet or cupboard) you tackle, follow these three steps:

Remove everything.
Vacuum or wipe down the empty space.
Put back only what you want to keep.

Modern Kitchen by Giulietti Schouten Architects

Spring cleaning focus: Get cooking. If you love to cook (or want to cook more), it can be well worth the effort it takes to give the kitchen and pantry a thorough cleaning. Start by clearing out old food and spices, and wash the interior of your fridge and food cupboards. Clean all of those forgotten nooks and crannies, including inside the oven, microwave and toaster oven, plus the dish drainer. Finish by wiping down the walls (which can get surprisingly grimy) and windows.

If you have a bit more time, give your breakfast nook or dining area a once-over. Chairs and table legs (especially in households with kids) can use an occasional cleaning. Put pads on the feet of chairs to protect your floors, clean dust from the corners of the room and set something pretty in the center of the table.

Spring cleaning focus: Textile refresh. If it’s been a while since you’ve cleaned your rugs or upholstery, this could be the right focus for you. Start by laundering small washable items, like shower curtains, cotton rugs and washable slipcovers, at home. When laundering slipcovers, try putting them back on while they’re still barely damp for a better fit.
Transitional Entry by Brett Mickan Interior Design

Take larger area rugs and removable pillow covers to be professionally cleaned. If you have wall-to-wall carpeting, have it professionally cleaned or rent a carpet cleaner and do it yourself. Drapery and upholstery that cannot be cleaned by another method can usually be safely steam cleaned using a real steam cleaner designed to be safe for textiles — not a carpet shampooer or hard-flooring steam cleaner. (Always check for care directions and test a spot first.)
Entry by Shift Interiors

Spring cleaning focus: Green and clean. Around Earth Day (April 22) is a great time to give your home a healthy, ecofriendly makeover. Consider making one or more of these changes during your spring cleaning:

Use natural cleansers (or baking soda and white vinegar) to tackle cleaning projects like mopping, wiping counters and caring for furniture.
Cut up old T-shirts to make rags and use them in place of paper towels.
Replace disposables with reusable items, like glass water bottles, stainless steel straws, cloth shopping bags and cloth napkins.

To clean the air, bringing in an air purifier is a good idea — but don’t neglect simpler methods as well, like opening windows to let in fresh air and keeping plenty of healthy houseplants.
Eclectic Bathroom by Studio Stamp
Studio Stamp
Spring cleaning focus: Deep clean. Let’s face it: In the course of a regular weekend, it never seems like a good time to get to those truly deep (and often pretty yucky) cleaning projects you know you should be doing. Why not dedicate a day to doing all the dirty work you’ve been putting off? Just be sure to plan a nice reward at the end of it!

Here are a few tasks to consider putting on your deep-cleaning to-do list:

Vacuum all of the hard-to-reach places you usually skip, such as deep under the beds and behind furniture.
Clean out the dryer hose and vacuum inside the lint trap.
Clean behind the fridge and vacuum the coils.
Scrub the grout in the kitchen and bath.
Clean out the garbage can and recycling bins.
Dust the light fixtures.
Clean the blinds.

Victorian Exterior by Anthony Crisafulli Photography
Anthony Crisafulli Photography
Spring cleaning focus: Exterior scrub-up. Perhaps staying indoors to clean just when the weather outside is getting bearable sounds like a horrible idea altogether. In that case consider making your spring cleaning all about the exterior of your home. Hose down the siding, clean out the gutters and downspouts, wash the windows and stain the deck. If you feel really inspired, make your way into the garden and clean your tools, edge the lawn and mulch the flowerbeds.

Kitchen Design Ideas in 5 Shades of Green

Green-Kitchen-Design-Ideas-Remodeling-Renovation-by-General-Contractors

Kitchen Design takes many factors in consideration, especially when Remodeling your home. One aspect of the design is the color you will use. We believe the use of the color green could be beneficial in your kitchen design and remodel. Here is why,

Human eyes are more sensitive to green color frequencies than any other. The color shows up in our world more often than any other color that is visible to the human eye. It is the color between blue and yellow, two of the more energetic colors, on the spectrum of visible light. Green is the color most commonly associated with nature, life, youth, spring, and hope. Green is also the traditional color of safety and permission; a green light means to go ahead. Green is also associated with balance, growth, restoration, clarity and positive nature. Green in Europe and the United States is sometimes associated with status and prosperity.


Here are some of our favorite Green Color Kitchen Designs.

Whichever reason stands out the most for you personally, choosing a green color would be beneficial for your Kitchen Design.

Emerald

Emerald-kitchen-cabinets-design-remodeling-traditional-white-wood-hood-island-countertop

Emerald is a brilliant green, like that of the gemstone from which it takes its name.
Perhaps because of the rarity of the gemstone, emerald as a color name is often used to connote an exquisite or precious quality, as in Emerald Isle, a poetic name for Ireland made popular by the Irish writer William Drennan in his poem “When Erin First Rose.” Emerald can also refer to a size of type in printing and a small, bright green hummingbird.
Emerald would be best used in the back-splash or the counter-top in your new kitchen.

Jade

Jade-green-kitchen-cabinets-design-remodeling-traditional-island-marble-countertop

Jade is a shade of green, varying from bluish green to yellowish green that takes its name from the ornamental stone highly esteemed for carvings and jewelry.

Jade would go well whether you use it as the wall color or as the kitchen cabinets in your kitchen design.

Olive

Olive-Green-Sage-Kitchen-Cabinets-Design-Remodeling-Modern-traditional-island

Olive is an ocher green or dull yellow green, as of the unripe olive fruit. The word olive comes to us from the Greek elaia. Olive is often used to describe a Mediterranean complexion. Olive drab refers to a grayish green, and has been used to refer to uniforms of the U.S. Army. Olive has a shade of grey that goes very well with any mix of colors.

Hunter Green

Hunter-green-kitchen-cabinets-design-remodeling-contractor-solid-wood-countertop

Hunter green, sometimes called hunter’s green, is a dark green of yellowish cast. The name emerged in the late 1800s, when it was the favored color of dress among hunters.

Hunter green must now compete with a range of color and design options, such as olive drab and camouflage, for the favored position in the hunter’s wardrobe or a rustic kitchen.

Shamrock

Shamrock-green-kitchen-cabinets-wall-color-design-remodeling-contractor-grade-countertops

The favorite this week would have to be the shamrock or lucky green. It is a popular color for many reasons.
The choice shade of green for St. Patrick’s Day, the color shamrock takes its name from the national emblem for Ireland. The word shamrock is from Irish word seamróg for “clover.”
This green color is vibrant and could go along with many different color choices in your new kitchen design.
