Soon enough it will be time for the fun and chaos of the holiday season, now is the time to think about those Fall/Winter home projects you might want to get taken care of before the family visits for the holidays.

We asked our design team for some hot Fall/Winter remodeling trends to consider during the downtime here is their list of the top things on remodeling wish lists:

Open Kitchens 

With a lot of homes being built several decades ago in Florida we find a lot of people trapped in a closed kitchen floor plan that really dates the home.  An open floor plan that knocks down walls is perfect for entertaining and will really open up the flow and energy of your home.

Kitchen Tech

With all the gadgets we are connected to these days kitchens are evolving to include things like built in charging stations, places to hold your iPad/tablet, cookbook holders, under counter led lighting and so much more to make your time in the kitchen more convenient and enjoyable.

Lifestyle Appliances 

Kitchen design has evolved beyond stainless steel dishwashers and refrigerators-high end appliances are becoming commonplace in kitchens.  Built in beverage stations and coffee makers are a must have for those who entertain frequently!

A Pop of Color

White kitchens are all the rage right now...clean, contemporary and open.  Homeowners are using these kitchens as the perfect backdrop for a bold choice of color to really bring the design to life.

Elaborate Bathrooms

For all the simplicity we find in the kitchen, bathrooms have been trending to go large and heavily decorated. Homeowners rally seem to be having fun with these spaces from decor to tile to lighting which really seems to help make good impression with buyers as well!

Kitchen Islands

Hardly a new trend, however with kitchens going wall-less the kitchen island has become an even more important staple to today's kitchen design to help house a second sink, built in appliances, wine storage and more!

“July 11, 2016

Dear Richard,

Just want to thank Grand Kitchen & Bath for our completely remodeled kitchen. It is absolutely beautiful and extremely functional. You listened to all of our dreams and then made them a reality. Your creativity added features we didn’t even know existed.

We had no idea how much we would enjoy the drawer in a drawer concept. We can now set the table while opening only one drawer. Oh yes, the spice drawer – wow!! That’s all I can say about that. I can actually find spices that I didn’t even know I had. Let’s not forget about the beverage center that you designed specifically for us. It makes entertaining so much more enjoyable.

Here are just a few of the comments from our friends… Stunning, awesome, gorgeous and our favorite – Zen like. These comments pretty much summarize our feelings about our beautiful new kitchen.

Our experience with your crew was a real pleasure. They were very respectful of our privacy and our home. The project was completed on time and within budget.

Best Regards,

Marlene and Paul”

Spring has arrived!  While we don’t get the harsh winters our friends in other parts of the country do its still that time of year where we start thinking about projects; the new landscaping in the front yard, finally doing something about these dated bathrooms, adding that outdoor kitchen in the back yard you always wanted…this list goes on.

Spring is a great time to consider a remodel it’s a great way to clean out the house and transform a room into an updated, fresh new space for your family to enjoy for years to come. But where does one begin?   It can get a bit overwhelming so we’ve created some quick tips to keep it simple and stress free!

  1. Determine your wishes and wants.  This is the time to think about the space you want to remodel and why.  What’s not working?  What are the things you wish it always had?  What are things you’ve seen that you always wanted?   While this is a good time to dream, also make sure you are categorizing your wants into must haves and nice to haves-this makes it easier to narrow the focus when you get to the next step…budget!
  2. Have an honest look at what you realistically want to spend and evaluate as well that what you spend will add value in your home down the road if you choose to sell later on.  It’s usually recommended to pad your budget number by 10% to accommodate anything for unexpected that might come up down the road.
  3. Review your timeline. What’s the ideal time for this to happen is there a particular event, season, visit from family, etc. you are trying to have this done in time for?  Make sure to look at times that absolutely wouldn’t work so when you talk to your design/contractor team you can communicate those.  They’ll be able to give you a clearer time frame but you should have realistic expectations that projects like a kitchen remodel are going take approximately six weeks to complete.
  4. Find the right designer and contractor and understand their roles.  The beauty of working with full service remodel professionals, like Grand Kitchen + Bath, is they handle all the details from their in-house design team to contractor staff.  You are not hiring multiple people from various companies and trying to play project manager to keep them all in line and on budget, that’s what we do.

  5. Plan for change.  In the case of an entire room remodel such as a kitchen or bathroom, you undoubtable will have to plan ahead for changes in traffic patterns in the home and functionality of part or all of that room for certain periods of time.  Be sure to get a full understanding of these potential changes with your design/contractor team upfront so accommodations can be made to avoid trying anyone’s patience in the home!
  6. Prepare to enjoy.  Hitting the finish line and seeing the full unveiling of your new space is the most exciting part!  If it’s a remodel on your kitchen or outdoor entertaining space we highly recommend throwing a party with friends and neighbors to celebrate (and of course show it off!).

Porcelain tile continues to grow in popularity for remodeling projects in the kitchen, bath and even outdoor areas for many reasons. Compared to earlier types of tile on the market, porcelain tile is tougher, more scratch resistant, stain resistant and has outstanding durability. It holds up great in heavy foot traffic areas giving you a solution that will look great and be easy to clean for years to come.

The amount of new looks, textures and colors in porcelain tile we have at our disposal allows us to bring richness and warmth to spaces that shocks our clients.
