Adjustable rollouts in kitchen cabinets

Kitchen cabinets come with a standard adjustable shelf which can be upgraded with a rollout or multiple rollouts, typically in a base or utility style cabinet with a depth of at least 18 inches, any less than that and the rollout would not be too useful. The standard depth of a base or utility cabinet would be 24 inches and is too deep to reference the items near the back of the cabinet, the addition of a rollout shelves makes use of the entire cabinet by allowing you to see what is in the back. In addition, many rollout shelves come with easy to use options for adjust-ability allowing you to easily move the location of the roll out as your needs change.

Kitchen cabinet drawer organizers

There are so many great ways to organize your kitchen drawers, some are standard features like a wooden cutlery divider or an angled utensil divider and others are more custom features like knife drawers that are molded to the exact set of knives you have selected. The cutlery divider is come in either a single level or a two-tiered model to better organize smaller items. The angled utensil divider is an ingenious way to have long items like wooden spoons, rolling pins, bottle opener’s and other small items all neatly organized and one large drawer.

Cabinets with built-in trash and recycling cans

Cabinet with built-in trash or recycling cans are a must have in today’s kitchens. Some Space planning considerations need to be made in advance to ensure you get the size and or quantity you were looking for. In an 18 inch wide base cabinet comes a single 50 quart can, in order to have a double 50 quart can you would need a 21 inch wide base cabinet. Some of the latest models even have a spot for your paper towels! Look for cabinets that have built-in trash or recycling containers that are built was a sturdy wooden construction, preferably dovetail box and heavy duty Undermount soft close drawer glides. These units take a lot of stress and see a lot of action in their lifetime so it’s important to make sure they are well-made.

Base cabinet with tray dividers

Adding a tray divider to a base cabinet is a great way to not only free up space in other cabinets since it reduces the need to stack items on top of each other and it allows you to organize your trays and cutting boards in a way that makes sense for how you use them. Now you will have no excuse to make that recipe that requires the muffin tin of the bottom of the cabinet! In addition to baking sheets, muffin tins, and cutting boards, the base cabinet tray divider can also be used for pizza stones.

Spice organizers for upper & lower cabinets

Cabinet companies like Schrock and Decora Cabinets offer plenty of solutions when it comes to organizing spices, however, other solutions exist at aftermarket suppliers such as the container store, bed bath and beyond, Rev-A-Shelf and so on. When it comes to spice organization it’s really all about use and accessibility, having spices neatly organized in an inconvenient place does the cook no good. Having the spices eye level in the bottom of an upper cabinet is a very convenient location and with the addition of an acrylic set of steps allows the user to easily see all of the spices at a glance with great accessibility. This feature is easily expandable, highly efficient and very cost-effective.

1. NJ Kitchen Remodeling Contractors Have Industry Clout

The average kitchen remodel takes hundreds of hours to complete with dozens of skilled tradesmen working together simultaneously. Having every trade and material delivery show up when they are needed requires detailed planning and organizational skills, but if just one trade contractor or material delivery does not hit the mark, the entire schedule will have “slippage”. This is where the kitchen remodeling contractor, with a well established network in New Jersey, can leverage the power of long standing relationships to bridge scheduling gaps and deliver your kitchen remodeling project on time without compromising the final product.


2. Single Source Accountability vs Multiple Contractors

Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to worry? That’s just what you get when you hire a NJ kitchen remodeling contractor and everything is under one contract. That’s because the kitchen remodeling contractor is aware of all the items that go into the kitchen renovation as you work through the process together. In addition, the tradesmen who are working on your kitchen remodeling project know one another, all get along well and understand they are completing the kitchen remodel as a team that is being directed by the kitchen remodeling contractor. Hiring multiple contractors to complete a kitchen renovation opens the door to misunderstandings with an unknown end result, each may be good tradesmen but it’s anyone’s guess if they’ll work well together and when it does not go well, the finger pointing begins. And then there are all the details that are missed since the various contractors are not communicating with one another.  


3. Competitive Kitchen Renovation Pricing

Another great advantage of hiring a NJ kitchen remodeling contractor is being able to utilize their trade discounts. In today’s highly competitive market place there is no room for a kitchen remodeling contractor to pad the bottom line on material purchases, instead kitchen remodeling contractors are passing on their trade discounts to their clients which is great for keeping the overall costs of a kitchen renovation as low as possible. To cover their costs the kitchen remodeling contractors are adding an administrative line item to their proposals. Some local stores advertise that that pass on trade discounts to consumers that come in without a contractor,and while that may be true, the level of discount often varies greatly when compared with a kitchen remodeling contractors account who does a large volume of business with a select group of NJ kitchen remodel vendors and other local resources.


4. NJ Kitchen Cabinet Showroom Locations

Hiring a well established kitchen remodeilng contractor who has a brick and mortar location in the Bergen/Passaic County NJ area can provide you with a piece of mind knowing that they have made an investment not only in their own company but in the community they serve. It also allows you to view the latest kitchen design trends, cabinet displays, cabinet door styles and finishes they offer to make sure you are happy with the selections before you make a commitment. There is no better feeling than walking into the place where you purchased your kitchen cabinets from a few years earlier to address some miscellaneous service item that has come up and the same individuals are there, remember your job and know exactly what you need.


5. NJ Kitchen Renovation Service

Being provided with a high level of customer service before, during and after a kitchen remodeling project goes without saying when you’ve hired a well qualified kitchen remodeling contractor. That’s because of their passion for excellence and an unwavering commitment to satisfied clients. “In the end you will be happy, and if you are not happy, it is not yet the end”.
