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”.

New Jersey Kitchen Designers: Local Resource Guide

3:00 am

As NJ Kitchen Designers, we have often found that the best places to source products and services for your kitchen design are closer than you think, usually they are right in your own backyard and North New Jersey is no exception!  

Kitchen Design Hawthorne, NJ

Selecting materials for your kitchen remodeling project can be an overwhelming and time consuming process. Working with a kitchen designer that will guide you through the process and assist in making the selections will certainly lighten the burden. Another key factor to making the most of your time is to use local resources that are close together, Hawthorne, NJ, nestled between Ridgewood, Glen Rock and Wyckoff, is a prime example, it truly is a kitchen designers paradise. I like to think of Hawthorne, NJ as the center of the hub, with offerings that range from kitchen countertops, tile, plumbing to electrical stores. Many other resources such as appliance showrooms are just one town over with an added benefit of lower NJ Sales tax, 3.3125% to be exact.

When we design a kitchen we start with a well thought out concept, from there we continue to shape and refine the design. The kitchen cabinetry can be designed and planned using standard sizes of appliances at this stage but we will have to defer to the appliance manufacturers specifications before we order the cabinets. Once we have a good solid kitchen design in place it’s time to incorporate the appliances into the mix. So let’s go shopping! 

Reno’s Appliance – Paterson, NJ

We can help you select your new major kitchen appliances at any budget. Sometimes you already have a great place you know and trust, businesses that service local neighborhoods offer so much more than the big box store alternatives.

 

The next step is to start looking at countertops, floor tile and backsplash tile. It is always recommend to take along your cabinet samples when selecting the countertops and tile. Look for a contrast of sheen between the materials and pay attention to the temperature of the colors, they should all be in the same range, nothing too high or too low. As you walk around hold up your kitchen cabinet samples, when you find the right one the colors will snap into place and you won’t have to think whether it’s right or not.

How to choose a Kitchen Designer

3:16 pm

Knowing what you’re kitchen is going to look like and how much it’s going to cost to build before you make a commitment is the best way to choose a kitchen designer.  After you have completed your kitchen planning research and narrowed down the choices to two or three candidates you’re ready to start reaching out and setting up the initial kitchen design visits.

What takes place at the initial kitchen design visit?

During the initial visit in your home the kitchen designer will take field measurements,  observe traffic patterns, discuss needs and wants and review your vision for the space including what type of materials you may want to use.  A general concept  is discussed and agreed upon along with the potential budget required  to build the project.  The next step is for the kitchen designer to develop this information into a set of conceptual drawings that will be the basis for the next meeting.

What to ask at the kitchen design visit:

  1. Are you comfortable with the kitchen designer, will you enjoy working with him/her?
  2. Do you have to use the kitchen designers sources for the materials or can you select your own sources?
  3. What items are not included in the budget and who is responsible for them?
  4. Who will create the construction, electrical, and tile design plans?
  5. What’s an average build time for similar projects completed?
  6. How much of a variance do you typically see in your proposals?

Proposed kitchen design plans and budget review meeting

Here, the proposed kitchen design plans and budget are presented for review,  this will be your first opportunity to see your new kitchen in the form of a floor plan, elevations of the walls with cabinets and 3-D perspectives.  It’s very exciting see all of the ideas take shape, the kitchen designer will walk you through the layouts and how everything came to be.  A detailed line item proposal based on the conceptual drawings that were created will contain items such as; architects fees, specific building materials, cabinetry budget, countertop allowance, etc., will also be presented that’s based on the drawings that were created.  At the end of this meeting you will have a full understanding of what your kitchen will look like and how much it will cost to build.

What to ask at the kitchen design plan and budget review meeting:

  1. Does the kitchen layout fit your lifestyle?
  2. Is the overall concept pleasing and functional?
  3. Who handles all the logistics and scheduling?
  4. Who will handle the permit process?
  5. What type of care will be taken to prep the home prior to the start of construction?
  6. Does the kitchen designer pass on “trade discounts” to you?

What to ask yourself after the meeting

  1. Were you “wowed” by the design?
  2. Did the kitchen designer really “get you”?
  3. Can you see yourself working with him/her?
  4. How does this offer compare to others?
  5. How much time and thought was put into the initial proposal?
