Refinishing Cabinets as Part of Your Kitchen Remodel

Part Two

We are continuing our series on kitchen remodeling and refinishing cabinets.  Houston Remodeling is one of the area’s premier remodeling contractors.  We proudly represent some of the best brands in the business and partner with respected hardware suppliers including Hardware Resources and Top Knobs.  Let’s take a look at three more aspects to consider when planning your kitchen remodeling project.

Cabinet Drawer Fronts

No kitchen remodeling project is complete without new drawer fronts and drawer boxes.   Dovetail drawer boxes in clear coat hardwood maple or birch with 100 pound rated undermount soft-close, full extension drawer slides are trending. And boy, what a difference this upgrade makes!

LED Cabinet Lighting

LED lighting is trending in home renovations.  Most kitchen remodeling projects we oversee incorporate LED over and undercabinet lighting, drawer and/or inside cabinet lighting and well as toe-kick lighting.

Organization Hardware

One goal of a kitchen remodel is to better organize the space. We partner with Hardware Resources on many of our kitchen remodeling projects. They offer an extensive line of organization hardware that is ideal for any remodeling kitchen project including lazy Susan’s, blind corner swingouts and pullouts, sliding door corner organizers, pullouts and soft-close trashcan systems, tray dividers, base and wall pullouts, door mount spice racks, pantry pullouts, drawer inserts, pot and pan organizers, cutlery drawers, wire stemware racks, bottle racks, soft close appliance lifts and more.

Guide to Selecting Wood Flooring

Part Two

We are continuing our two part series on what to look for when selecting wood flooring.  At Houston Remodeling, our goal is to educate our clients on available options and help them make the best decision for their commercial or home remodeling project.  Our previous article discussed different types of wood flooring.  This article will touch on laminate and adhesive.

The “Laminate” Lie

Many big box stores and questionable remodeling contractors try to pass off laminate flooring as actual wood flooring.  Laminate is not real wood.  It is essentially a picture of wood on a layered backing that could be made of plastic, rubber or some other material. The beauty and durability of solid hardwood and engineered wood flooring is unmatched in comparison to laminate.  Additionally, laminate has such a thin wear layer that you are lucky if it lasts 4-5 years before needing replaced. As a reputable design build contractor, we do not recommend or install laminate flooring. As a replacement for Laminate, we offer several LVT – Luxury Vinyl Plank floorings.

Adhesive

It’s important to use a quality, safe adhesive when installing an engineered floor. Most home remodeling contractors choose to use the cheapest adhesive they can get. This can result in problems later on, and also may not be the safest product for you and your family. Houston Remodeling prides ourselves on sourcing the best suppliers for all of our commercial and home remodeling projects. We proudly use GreenForce® Advanced Tri-Linking™ Adhesive and Moisture Control Membrane. GreenForce has antimicrobial protection to inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew on the cured membrane and features superior bonding capabilities, moisture vapor control and protection, and zero VOC content.

Houston Remodeling is owned and operated by Tim Lassiter, a second generation Master Trim Carpenter whose keen eye and attention to detail will help ensure your home renovations are completed with the quality and care you deserve.  We are available to oversee your entire home remodeling project.  If you are interested in do-it-yourself (DIY) options, we will consult with you on the type of flooring that will best suit your needs and order the materials you need to make your DIY project a success!  This is a service many home remodeling contractors do not offer.  Give Houston Remodeling a call today!
