OPENING UP YOUR KITCHEN by Keith Moehle

All homeowners spend a significant amount of time in their kitchen. A huge factor of enjoying this space is whether it’s cramped or spacious.

Today we are going to go over some options you can choose in a remodel that will open up your kitchen and make it more inviting for you and all of your guests.

Here is a list of ideas to get the ball rolling in what you can do to open up your kitchen!

  • Tear walls down

  • Install windows

  • Lighten the ceiling to lighten the look and raise the spaciousness

  • Install a skylight

  • Select lighter cabinets, paint color, backsplash tile and/or flooring

  • Create wider walking spaces

  • Open the kitchen to the family room

  • Add a barstool area to better suit entertaining and casual family meals

  • If space allows install sliding glass doors to a deck to really bring the outside in.

This is not an extensive list, but it gives you some ideas of what you can do in your own home. When you widen up the kitchen, you can display your beautiful cabinets, countertops, backsplash and flooring and tuck away the larger items (refrigerator, oven and dishwasher) to make the kitchen appear larger.

Having a larger entrance also makes the kitchen more inviting to everyone that comes to your home! Are you ready to start your remodel? Give us call at 210-680-5626 to get started ASAP!

GIVE YOUR BATHROOM A FACELIFT by Keith Moehle

Sometimes you have a room in your house that doesn’t have a major problem when it comes to the design and layout, but it is outdated or not your own personal taste. This happens a lot in bathrooms.

Homeowners can have major design issues with the color selection and style choices in their existing bathroom which can easily be fixed with a simple facelift.

Facelifts are more budget friendly compared to a full remodel. That being said, a facelift consists of replacing & removing countertops, faucets, sinks, maybe some new flooring and some tile around the tub.

This can make a significant style change, but you will typically have to leave the tub in place, keep a single sink and not remove any walls or install new windows to bring in sunlight.

At the end of the day, it all depends on what you really want. A facelift can be pain-free and go by quickly, but you may be wanting a full remodel to get more out of the project. Keith has been the general manager of KM BUILDERS since 1984 and has decades of experience to guide all of his clients to the perfect remodeling project for them.

DOES MY KITCHEN NEED A FACELIFT OR FULL REMODEL? by Keith Moehle

Every homeowner is ready to make some changes in their kitchen, whether it be minor or significant. We want to go over the difference between a facelift vs. a full remodel in your kitchen!

A facelift consists of removing or updating countertops, backsplash, faucets, sinks, dishwashers, sinks, flooring, paint or adding under cabinet lighting and other light fixtures.

A full remodel would include what goes on in a facelift along with moving around appliances and countertops, adding an additional dishwasher or sink, removing walls, installing brand new cabinetry, flooring and installing windows and much more.

The biggest difference between the two is deciding whether or not you're going to move items around in your kitchen. If you want to keep things in place, your kitchen would only need a facelift which can keep your budget down and make the process go by faster.

However, if your kitchen is not functional at the moment because of cramped space or an awkward layout, a facelift will not be sufficient. It would be the same as getting a brand new paint job on an old car. It turns out looking beautiful, but you’re still stuck with the same old problems.

Take time to evaluate what you really need in your kitchen and give us call at 210-680-5626 to schedule a free consultation with Keith. He can come in with a fresh pair of eyes to see what you will be needing in your next remodel!

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER DEMO? by Keith Moehle

A remodeling project should get you excited because you are finally getting the dream space in your home! However many homeowners aren't too thrilled because the remodeling industry has a worse rep than the cable companies about showing up to the job.

KM BUILDERS efficiency allows us to move smaller projects along quickly. Small bathrooms typically don’t have a lot of design that needs to be planned out because the toilet, vanity, sinks, shower, etc. tend to stay in the same place. Less design work helps move the process along quickly compared to larger projects.

Small bathroom remodels typically includes removing or replacing countertops, sinks, faucets, light fixtures, flooring, paint and trim.
