Trust Our Experienced Maryland Contractors For Your Kitchen Home Improvement
Our kitchens are the heart of our Maryland homes. It’s where our families and friends come together every day to connect and share a meal. That’s why it is so vital that you have a kitchen that truly works for your lifestyle and needs. Though Maryland is full of stunning historic houses, many homes here have outdated kitchens that need to be updated for our modern needs. A kitchen home improvement project can really transform your old-style kitchen into a modern culinary oasis.
As a family-owned Maryland company, Cardigan Kitchen and Baths understands the importance of a functional kitchen. We’ll help you take your ideas and make them a reality. Here’s how to get started.
Planning Your Kitchen Home Improvement
First, you’ll need to make a plan for how you want your kitchen to function. Think about the features you’d love to have in your kitchen. Think beyond just cabinet space and appliances and consider how you use your kitchen. For example, if you make lots of crab boils, a pot filler is an excellent addition to your kitchen. Some other popular kitchen upgrades include:
● Wine Fridge
● Built-In Coffee System
● Walk-In Pantry
● Pizza Oven
● Coffee Bar
Once you have an idea of how you want your kitchen to function, you can start planning the design.
Design Your Dream Kitchen Remodel
The next step is to start planning the design. At Cardigan Kitchens and Baths, our on-staff designers will take you through the process step-by-step. First, we’ll consider the layout and look for ways to maximize your space. Then comes the fun part. We’ll pick cabinetry colors and designs, counter materials like granite or quartz, and the flooring and backsplash tile. Next, we’ll integrate all your features, like sinks and appliances. Finally, we’ll explore lighting options for functionality and ambiance. No matter your style or budget, we’ll design a kitchen that suits your family’s needs.
Starting The Kitchen Home Improvement Process
Once we have the design, our team will get to work right away. We work with all our Maryland homeowners to ensure the kitchen home improvement timeline meets their schedule. First, our team will obtain any necessary kitchen home improvement permits from the Maryland county or city office. Next, we’ll plan the demolition and removal. Demolition is the most intrusive part of the project and can be dangerous. So, demolition day is the perfect day to take the family to Ocean City or Assateague Island. Then, we’ll get to work on building your dream kitchen.
Building Your Dream Kitchen
After demolition, the real work can get started. Our team at Cardigan Kitchen and Baths handles the entire remodel. So you won’t have to worry about finding different Maryland contractors for each kitchen upgrade. We start building your dream kitchen by first installing the electrical and plumbing work. Next, we’ll install your flooring. Once the flooring is set, we’ll construct and install your custom kitchen cabinetry. Then, we’ll attach the countertop and install your backsplash. We’ll then install all of your appliances. Finally, we’ll paint, add wallpaper, and make other aesthetic improvements. The project is finished with the final inspection from our team and approval from you.
