Kitchen & Bathroom Remodel Planning

Your home should look and feel exactly how you want it to. Unfortunately, much like everything else, your house ages. Appliances become broken and out-of-date, counters get chipped and worn, floors get warped, sinks become leaky, etc. Eventually it gets to a point where you need to remodel your kitchen or bathroom. But where to start…?

A remodel can be done very cost-effectively, but it should be noted that it is a serious undertaking that should not be attempted without licensed and certified help. With that in mind, home owners often wonder how they can be sure that they are getting the best service at the best price. Ask yourself, does the company have years of experience, great customer testimonials and are they licensed and certified? has installation certifications, is a member of the Hartland Chamber of Commerce, American Society of Plumbing Engineers and the Radiant Panel Association.

After you find a reputable and reliable plumber to help with your remodel, the next thing you should consider is what exactly you want done. The plumber should have a wide range of products for you to choose from and evaluate. Take into account materials, where it was made, the color, texture and overall feel of your new install. Don’t settle; remember your plumber is there to work with you and bring your vision to life. If they aren’t providing the changes that you want, it’s time to move on to another company.

Last, think about function and form. Some sinks and counters look really nice, but if they are rough and not a good fit for the size of the area you are working with, don’t try to fit a square peg in a round hole. Go with a company whose goal is to put your design and ideas first and you will be extremely happy with your remodel. This post originally posted by to Paul Glapinski
