Bringing Your Home Up To Date

featured-6

While the funnest home renovations are those that you are doing just to make your home more comfortable, it is also impossible to ignore the need for home renovations to update homes that have been neglected for too long.

Custom Cabinets

If you have an older home, then your cabinets may be starting to show some major signs of wear or simply just be hard to use. Cabinets that were made cheaply can begin to sag or bow if they have ever gotten wet or damp and had anything heavy placed on them. Dings and dents from years of use can also take a toll. Custom cabinets can make your kitchen into a place you don’t mind being.

Baseboards and Crown Molding

The trim and baseboards in a home can start to look rough or even have chips in them. Custom baseboards from Alliance Woodworking can be milled to match the style of your home. Essentially you preserve your home’s authenticity while making your walls look great once more.

Usable Closets

While a rod to hang clothing on a few shelves is nice to have, there is also a whole world out there of custom closets. Even a smaller closet may have more potential than you think if it is properly organized. This level of organization is only possible through shelving and cabinets that are made to fit the space.

Ditch The Plastic Storage Totes

If you are like a lot of people than you have probably resorted to plastic storage bins at some point. These bins can be cumbersome in some spaces and do not hold up well with frequent and extended use. Buying plastic storage bins over time can be more expensive than if you simply have your closet redesigned by our team of craftsmen.

Planning Your Custom Cabinet Renovations

CUSTOM CABINET

When it comes time to upgrade the cabinets in your home or plan a major renovation, there are a lot of things you need to consider to make sure that the process goes smoothly. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you are just now considering an addition or other home renovation project.

Consider More Than One Option

Even if you have a good idea of what style of cabinet you want, it is good to look at multiple options. Sometimes in the excitement of planning a renovation, it can be so easy to get stuck on one idea when there are so many out there. Custom cabinets are a major investment, and you want to be sure that you are getting the cabinets that will ensure your long-term happiness and work well in your home. Starting renovations and changing your mind can lead to a higher cost and delays.

Set A Budget And Plan Well

Knowing your budget ahead of time is very helpful because you can more readily make the most of what you have. It is also important to plan for the time that you will not be able to stay in your home. Renovations can take an extended amount of time if they are complex. Many people find that staying in their home is not something they want to do while work is happening. If a contractor runs into any unforeseen problems, you may have to stay out of your home slightly longer, so it is best to plan for extra time.

Get An Experienced Contractor

Alliance Woodworking has many years of experiencing providing custom cabinets and kitchen remodeling to a wide variety of customers. When you hire an experienced contractor, you can be reassured that you are getting quality work and materials for your money.

How to Update Your Bathroom in 2016

bathroom renovation ideas

Updating a bathroom can change the entire look and feel of a home. Bathroom renovations and improvements are also a good way to add more value to your home. Here are some modern ways to update your bathroom in 2016.

Custom Bathroom Vanities

A custom vanity can make a bathroom more space efficient and aesthetically pleasing. Custom bathroom vanities can be made of a variety of woods, glass, or other materials. Go with something that suits your needs.

Replace Outdated Lighting Fixtures

What once looked good in the 80’s or 90’s might be looking pretty rough by now.  This doesn’t necessarily mean the whole fixture needs to go, but new shades and covers for lighting can make a huge difference. A couple of stained glass shades might be less than $100 and add real elegance.

Update Faucets And Shower Heads

There are many different types and finishes of shower heads and faucets. An aged bronze theme replacing shiny silver fixtures adds old world and vintage charm. Old shower heads and tub faucets can be pitted and look worn out over time. If you have a high-quality fixture in place that is still working well but looks rough, there are kits that can be purchased that allows for the external parts of your waterworks to be replaced while the plumbing stays in place.

Mirrors

A great mirror helps a bathroom appear brighter and larger. A full-length mirror on the back of the door in a beautiful frame makes getting dressed easier. Well mirrored glass is not as expensive as many people think. In fact, the frame is what can make the price increase. Of course, custom mirrors with etching or very elaborate framework will cost more but add interesting detail.

Floor Coverings

Old and outdated rugs and bathmats need to go. A high-quality bathmat will help protect your floor more and won’t bunch up or contribute to slipping. Custom sized bathmats are also available if your space is unique.

Ditch The Old Shower Curtain

Custom shower doors are nice and mean you never have to deal with curtain replacement or maintenance again. Glass doors add elegance and light to a shower as well.  If you still need a shower curtain, make sure to replace it once in a while.

How To Organize Your Custom Kitchen Cabinets

custom kitchen cabinets

Organizing a kitchen is no easy task. Custom kitchen cabinets, however, can make the job easier since they are designed to fit perfectly into your kitchen and lifestyle. Here are some tips for making sure your cabinets are sleek and organized.

Don’t Start a Misc Drawer

Everyone has heard of the infamous junk drawer. The truth is that a lot of what is in there is junk, not something that you need to hang onto just in case. The first step is making sure that there is nothing in your kitchen that doesn’t get used.

Plan Out Interior Storage and Add Racks as Needed

If your cabinets just have shelves, it can be hard to organize everything properly. Pan and lid racks are inexpensive and help ensure that pots and pans are not always crashing down every time you open a cabinet. Racks allow you to access the exact pan you need with ease.

Never Underestimate the Lazy Susan

A Lazy Susan is a round disk that is often made of wood and sits on another disk that allows it to spin freely. This is a great way to organize spices and oils that you use regularly and prevent having to dig around in your cabinets to find what you need. There are many sizes of these handy devices available. Make sure to get one that is built well and you will have it for a lifetime of use.

Decrease Clutter with an Over The Head Rack

If you want very easy access to pots and pans or want to show off a beautiful set, you can make more room in your custom kitchen cabinets by adding a wall or ceiling mounted pan rack. These come in all sizes and styles, so it is easy to find one to match décor.

Divide into Sections

If you don’t have a separate pantry, lower cabinets are often used for keeping items you use often. The cabinet closest to the coffeemaker might be used to keep a selection of teas and coffee as well as extra filters.

Food Storage

Some foods and beverages are more sensitive to heat than others. Wine, for example, shouldn’t be stored right beside your oven. Fruits and vegetables will also spoil more rapidly if closer to a heat source. Dry foods, on the other hand, are a good choice for storing closer to heat sources.

Having custom kitchen cabinets installed is the absolute best way to have an organized kitchen. You’ll be surprised how much easier your life will be! Contact Alliance Woodworking to get started on the kitchen you’ve always wanted.
