Not only do Richard and Julie know how to create and build amazing kitchens—they also know a thing or two about how to handle the events that surround them! Here are few quick tips to help relieve some of the stress that the holiday can bring.

  1. Set the table the night before, it will relieve stress of last minute details for the day of your dinner.
  2. Get a final head count the day before to make sure you have ample seating and food.
  3. Welcome guests to bring something to the meal, take some of the stress off yourself.
  4. Make as many of the dishes in advance, less stress the day off the meal.
  5. Order some of the dishes/desserts from your favorite local restaurant or grocery store.
  6. Try to incorporate some simple, healthy side dishes.
  7. Think beyond the kids table! Have plenty of all age board games on hand to keep them entertained throughout the day.
  8. Invite someone to stay behind and help get caught up on the dishes

We wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

You don’t need me to tell you that there is a lot that needs to get done if you are planning on having guests for the holidays. Everything from the menu to the décor falls on you, and you are eager to make a positive showing for your guests.

One of the best ways you can ensure that you have everything ready for the holidays is to prepare early. You wouldn’t want to wait until Christmas Eve to waltz into a toy store and expect to grab the hottest holiday toy.

The same concept applies to kitchen remodels. Everyone wants their kitchens to look amazing when guests come over! They want their guests to gush over how amazing their cabinets are and how the design of the kitchen brings it to life. If your kitchen doesn’t currently do that, maybe it’s time to look at a remodel?

Much like the toy store though, it is a lot easier to get your kitchen remodeled sooner rather than later. With everyone looking at upgrading to premium quality cabinets, granite countertops, and getting their entire kitchens redesigned, contractors and supplies are in high demand.

The earlier you start, the better your chances are of the job being completed on time, and spots are filling fast of jobs to be completed for the holiday season.

Luckily for you, there is an interior design company located conveniently in St. Petersburg, Florida, Grand Kitchen and Bath, that is ready to help you every step of the way with your re-model. Now is the time to book your remodel though for the holidays though, because you wouldn’t want your guests to be disappointed!

At Grand Kitchen we realize that the rooms in your home should reflect and serve your various stages in life. This month we are featuring a brilliant design from KraftMaid, The No Kids (Yet) Kitchen. This space utilizes both high gloss contemporary palettes balanced with warm tones of wood in the floors and kitchen island.

Explore the overview and video below for more information and inspiration, then head into our showroom to make your's a reality!

Spring is just around the corner and the season always sparks fresh beginnings and a clean start to the rest of  the year. The kitchen is a great place to start your spring cleaning regimen.  Below we list advice and tips on how to clean specific parts of your kitchen from our most popular lines, as well as strategies to keep the entire kitchen clean.

Cleaning Schedule

Neglect is a guaranteed way for your kitchen to deteriorate. Having a cleaning schedule will make cleaning the kitchen become instinct. This method works wonders for a two-or-more person household with a large amount of dishes and wear and tear in the kitchen. It should take roughly 20 minutes for one person to clean the kitchen, imagine how quick it could be done with help!

Tools of the Trade

Make sure you always have the proper cleaning materials handy in the kitchen. You may often want to use them while cooking, so its best to have them nearby. It’s very important that you know what types of materials in your kitchen will need cleaning and what type of cleaner to use. Do some research and stock up.

Caring for Granite & Cambria Countertops

One of our most popular lines in countertops would be Cambria. Resilient as they are, granite countertops need very specific care and you could be causing it harm if you are not caring for it in the proper way.

 

Cabinet Care

Cabinets require a lot of specific care. One of our most popular cabinet lines, KraftMaid, offers these cleaning tips for all of their many types and styles of cabinets.

The Obvious

Dishes, floor and countertops. These are givens and are usually all that ever gets cleaned. These are obviously important
things to have clean as most of them come within direct contact of you and your food. Be sure that these three are cleaned daily. Remember to not leave anything on your countertops. Do you want ants? Because that’s how you get ants…
