The thought of remodeling your kitchen is exciting until you face the many decisions you have to make. The number of products can be overwhelming and become a jumble in your mind. The Kitchen and Bath Center at Somerville Lumber Company has one of Bridgewater’s largest displays of home products. Our display of flooring, tile work, cabinetry, counter tops, fixtures, and lighting is as vast as it is high quality.
Before you start remodeling your kitchen, it is important to have a plan that focuses on your wants and needs. While you focus on the wants, let the kitchen designers at The Kitchen and Bath Center at Somerville Lumber focus on the needs. You need a budget as part of your plan, and you need to stick to it. Costs can spiral out of control quickly otherwise. A budget cushion of 10-15 percent will help pay for incidentals at the end of your remodeling process.
You have many choices when choosing the style of kitchen you want. A traditional kitchen of natural wood and curvy accents has a homey feel, while a more modern kitchen has a minimalist appearance that offers angles and edges in the form of clean lines. If going with just one style of the kitchen doesn’t appeal to you, take a transitional approach and create the gourmet kitchen of your dreams with a mixture of styles.
Choose your Cabinets
You should expect to spend about a third of your budget on cabinetry, hardware included. If you do not have the money in your budget for all the features you want, you can start with the basics and build toward the desired result by adding items as you can afford them.
Do not let your desires override your budget, but buy the highest-quality cabinets that is affordable. One item that adds to the cost of cabinets is soft close doors and drawers. This is worth paying the extra cost. The Kitchen and Bath Center at Somerville Lumber, we sell cabinets from Diamond, Decora, Echelon, Greenfield, and Wolf, giving you a broad selection of products when choosing cabinets for your kitchen remodeling project.
