Cabinets

We know the backbone of every kitchen is the cabinetry. To make the most use of your kitchen’s size and floor plan. We help you consider different layouts and looks.

Base cabinets get the most attention, whereas hanging wall cabinets are     sacrificed  for aesthetic features—windows, dramatic backsplashes—to create atmosphere and a living room appeal in the kitchen. That said, base cabinets         are moving away from doors and toward drawers. Drawers make storage more accessible for more people.

"Ergonomically, it brings contents to you rather than you having to bend over and dig through layers to get what you need.

Countertops

 

Countertops set the tone for the kitchen, so we will help you choose materials and a look that not only reflect your style, but also are in line with how you use the kitchen.

Granite is on the must-have list for many homebuyers. But engineered stone products made primarily of quartz are replacing granite in high-end design today, and their functionality as a stain-resistant, durable, sleek-looking surface fulfills lifestyle and aesthetic prerequisites for many.

Re-Masters says half our clients go with granite, and half go with a quartz surface. clients  who tend to want a modern kitchen, chooses quartz for its consistency. 

Meanwhile, natural stone tends to have, More colors and a more exotic finish.

Natural Stone

 

Riding a wave of popularity for the last several years as the surface for countertops, granite "Natural Stone" is available in several grades, generally 1 through 5 (Yield Factor Re-Masters Says: How much good stone out of the mountain) patterns, colors

and thicknesses.

Engineered Stone. 

 

These are your quartz surfaces composed of 93 percent quartz particles and available in a larger range of colors than granite. Prices are comparable, sometimes more. The nonporous surface resists scratches and stains, and manufacturers generally offer a warranty. Brands include Cambria Quartz, Silestone, CaesarStone, LG Viatera and DuPont Zodiac.

Floor

 

Your kitchen floor needs to stand up to a lot of foot traffic and potential spills, so consider durability and ease of maintenance when choosing materials. But that shouldn't mean you should ignore style — floors play a key part in tying the look of the room together.

Porcelain tile rules the floor space because of its durability, versatility, availability in a range of colors, textures and designs, and affordability compared to natural stones. These tiles are fired at about 1800 degrees Fahrenheit, so they're tough as nails and aren't likely to chip, crack or discolor. Limestone, slate, travertine and other natural surfaces lend character to a space, but they do tend to scratch easier than porcelain tile, and they are more absorbent so more likely to stain.

Floor tiles are larger today than ever before. A standard 12-inch tile evolved into 16-inch squares, which grew into 18-inch tiles and today, you'll find 21- and 24-inch tiles in kitchens of all sizes. (Small kitchens can also handle big tiles — fewer grout lines create a sleek space.)

Bigger tiles are better today, too, because of technology that allows manufacturers to develop tiles without warping issues that used to be a problem.

Hardwood floors are timeless and soft on the foot, making them nice for chefs that spend a lot of time on their feet in this space. Also, hardwood floors might flow into hardwood in adjacent rooms, creating a seamless line. This effect truly connects the kitchen to other living spaces in the home.

Laminate flooring is a relatively new invention which has taken the world of floor surface covering by storm. Versatile, easy to maintain, and reasonably priced, some people consider this a “super material.” However there are a number of drawbacks when it comes to laminate flooring. It is important to understand the good, the bad, and the ugly, before making a final decision about whether to use this material in your home, or commercial properties.
