Kitchen Remodeling-which route is better?

Question by Undecided: Kitchen Remodeling-which route is better?
I’m remodeling my 10×10 kitchen with new cabinets, granite countertop..and appliances and was wondering if it would be better to purchase all the stuff myself and then hire a general contractor to install everything or hire a kitchen remodel contractor that will do all that for me for one lump sump? I’m not looking to get high end stuff…i’m more of a practical person. I’ve looked in to Home Depot & Lowe’s and their installation doesn’t include taking out the cabinets or counter-top so I would still need to hire someone else to do that. I’m not very handy. Which route has you done and any advice you can give me? Any idea as far as the price range it would cost? I’m not doing any extra plumbing or electrical wiring. I would love to hear from some and your experience

Answer by Salted Nuts
do the demo yourself and save a lot of money it isnt all that hard or pay some neighborhood kids to help you do the lifting and removing appliances
just unscrew the screws in the cabinets and they come apart

Q&A: I want to highlight my kitchen cabinet doors with glaze on the corners and crevices?

Question by The Wiz: I want to highlight my kitchen cabinet doors with glaze on the corners and crevices?
can I do that on already finished doors. Will the glaze stick or will it peel off?
I just want to pinstripe them with a bronze glaze.

Best answer:

Answer by Dax O
Depends on the glaze. I would give just a light scuff/sand to the areas you want to apply it. If nothing else to give the glaze more to bond to. You dont need to sand it down, just scuff it a little.

Kitchen Renovation cost?

Question by tagden: Kitchen Renovation cost?
I know it is impossible to give a price on something without seeing it, but I would like to get some opinions on what this would cost.

8′ x 9′ kitchen. 101″ floor to ceiling. Galley style.
I have appliances, we are looking at completely stripping the old kitchen and put in a new modern looking kitchen with clean lines. Knock out one wall with a doorway and add a support beam in it’s place opening up that side. Taking back the walls on the other side of the kitchen to counter depth. This would eliminate the closed feeling of 1925 construction and give the open feeling I’m looking for.

I have a price on the counters, floors, and backsplash…but the rest…demo, cabinets, installation…how much for all that??

I have gotten one quote from a contractor for 10k, and one for 40K.

Help guide me! Please!

Best answer:

Answer by me
It all depends on your roof and supports and the basement …Also how wide of an opening for the “I” beam and then rerouting electrical and plumbing…. Impossible to answer here.

Think hard on this though..I know open concept is the rage but the money may be better spent adding a breakfast room and a 1/2 bath and mud room. You don’t want to take away the look of the older home but you do want the space and to be able to accommodate storage an eating area and a mud room to both keep heat or cool in and dirt out. If this is like most older homes you don’t have a bathroom on the first floor. http://img4.southernliving.com/i/2007/03/decorator-kitchen/cantley-breakfast-nook-l.jpg?400:400

The cost of adding on may be equal to your plan cost wise and offer you much more use of the space. Feel free to contact me for design concepts (no charge).

Quotes from contractors will vary wildly for both concept and design unless you know exactly what plan your going after. Also you need the knowledge of what will work most cost efficiently to achieve your family’s needs and work with your aesthetics. http://www.housebeautiful.com/cm/housebeautiful/images/white-nook-1-0107-xlg.jpg Breakfast nooks are great for storage too. http://www.homedzine.co.za/kitchen/images/nook-01a.jpg

How much to install an IKEA kitchen?

Question by AP: How much to install an IKEA kitchen?
I’ve chosen cabinets
already used online planner and know how I want to look
don’t need appliances
don’t need fixtures
just need assembly and install

Best answer:

Answer by Brandsconstruction.com/WordPress
Good advertising for this kitchen here – :-). Is Yahoo connected with IKEA? They have good cabinets with good pricing so I’m not complaining.

Just Follow The Directions!
Detailed directions come with the cabinets.

They can be a pain in the rear for the first couple you assemble- after that – If you ensured you had the right design – you should be good to go!
