As the holidays approach, the last thing you may be thinking of is remodeling your house. Then again, as you think about all the family who will be at your house for the holiday dinner, you may be wondering if the kitchen remodel you have been thinking of will ever happen. Maybe 2014 is the year to plan for a new kitchen, bathroom or addition. Would you love to have a double oven next year so cooking is less hectic? Maybe you need more counter space or enough room for two or more cooks in the family. Although I do not recommend basing your appliance purchase on your needs for one or two days out of the year, make some notes about the limitations and problem areas of your house during the times when your house is the busiest. This may help you and your designer come up with solutions that make your new space work ALL the time for you.
Sometimes people make the mistake of putting off the start of the process until late summer or early fall in hopes of getting their dream kitchen done in time for Christmas. If you are just starting your search for a company to help you remodel in the fall, you will be disappointed when you find out that it takes 6 months or so to plan and execute a kitchen remodel. I help people all the time with remodeling and nobody has ever said of a kitchen remodel “Suzanne, there were less decisions to make than I thought there would be”. Foster Remodeling Solutions values your input and knows that no two projects are the same. We understand that this is something that you do not do very often, and we take the time to walk you through every decision that you need to make. We will let you know the pros and cons for all the options, and most importantly, we get to know you. When the project is complete, not only will you have quality products, quality workmanship, and a functional design, you will also have a home that is reflective of you and your lifestyle. Our goal is to have all of your relatives come next year and say, “I love your new (fill in the blank), it is so you. You must have done all the design work yourself. You are so talented.”
