How we changed my house – part 3, the kitchen

Designing the kitchen of a house isn’t easy. But in most cases, we, the house owners, just can’t make our mind about what types of changes are to bring in the kitchen. But, we managed to do so quite effectively.

Hey fellows, this is Tom. You must have read my two consecutive posts on how I changed my house with MDM.  This is going to be the third part of the post and today, I would like to describe the improvisations of the kitchen.

Kitchen is the heart of the house (as we believe so) and we must try to keep it in the best condition, isn’t it? So, along with Mike, me and Jenny started planning the changes. It wasn’t easy since you are to make changes in an existing thing which is difficult. You know creating your dream kitchen is one of the trickiest endeavors but I guess, with the help of knowledgeable people, it becomes an easy snap.

However, the existing kitchen in our house was good but not in the way we were looking for. So we had to go for the renovation. The MDM was helpful for remodeling this as well. So, what you actually look for in a well decorated mid-size kitchen?

For us, firstly it was the cozy atmosphere in the kitchen so that it helps me cook the irregular delights (I’m very good at this!). Unless you are happy doing things in your kitchen, you will make it a mess with the cooking. There are other things too that can improve the appearance of your kitchen such as; double-bowl sink, flat-panel cabinets, medium tone wood cabinets, beige backsplash etc. and the most important thing is the hard wood floor. Ha ha, we were engulfed with the fact that finally, everything was there in our kitchen!

Modern Kitchen Remodeling

Things have been so beautifully and effectively arranged in the kitchen that you get enough free space to make yourself comfortable. The credit obviously goes to the MDM remodeling contractors. Firstly we created a 3D design of the project together with Mike and had to make even few more improvisations to that design. This is the advantage of such design I think. You can actually visualize what the final project is going to be like. We simply make those changes and Mike and team started working on them.

Jenny likes the deep drawers with smooth corners that offer an easy movement with bulk storage capacity for various oversized cooking items and I like the light hardwood floor. The wall of the place was also a concern for us and we decided to use tiles on them for an enhanced appearance. Now, me and my wife can move around in the kitchen quite comfortably which not easily seen in a mid-sized kitchen.

It is now exactly as per our expectations and we love our kitchen now. I must say that the MDM contractors were really cooperative with us and they are extremely dedicated to the job. I don’t think I had made any mistake by hiring the MDM contractors. So, if you want to bring impressive changes in your kitchen or in any other place of your house for that matter, you can take help from this Los Angeles based remodeling company.

How I changed my house – Part 2, the bathroom

Hey friends, I’m back again with a new chapter of discussion!

As I promised that I would share instances about how I changed my house along with MDM so, here it goes.

In the previous part we discussed about how we (me and my wife) found out MDM Custom Remodeling Inc. for the remodeling job of our house.

The house we shifted recent at that time was fine except few places and bathroom was one of those. We needed to change the appearance of the bathroom just to make it comprised of more free space. There was a place for a pre-installed bath-tub which was good but not at that position. We planned to place at a corner in the bathroom.

Oh I forgot to tell you about the contractors. Firstly, I would like to say that we got a very good response from the company. They immediately reply us back and within 2 days of time we had a conversation with the contractors. We decided to make quite a few changes in the house and were suggested to start off with the bathroom. So, bathroom remodeling was our first pick in the new house in Los Angeles.

modern-bathroom-remodeling(30)

You know it’s good to keep two important things in mind while opting for a renovation service – 1) your family needs & 2) the future buyers. Even if you are not willing to sell off the property right now, you should keep the fact in mind. However, along with my wife I planned to add a corner bath in the bathroom although, it is also good to use the free space for a double vanity or a large storage cabinet instead if your family doesn’t take many baths. The opposite is also quite true that the future buyer might look for a bath tub in the bathroom. We decided to go for a bathtub and shower combo and I think that would serve the best for both worlds.

While including cabinets was in plan, the remodeling contractor suggested going for wall-mounted cabinets and medicine cabinets to make great savings on the free space. Another improvisation that we really like about the bathroom is drawer organizers, trays and bins. These help to keep small things and accessories handy and in check.

Done with these things, we concentrated on the material. Along with standard layout and storage, the used material is also very important to make the bathroom stand out. Different types and colors of tiles are available out of which you can make your popular flooring choice. Mosaic tiles are pretty common for showers specially and we were not really up for that instead, we opted for granite tiles which are easier to clean. We have also applied countertop color to add to the excitement of that place. Last but not the least, MDM has accomplished quality finishes for the cabinet pulls, shower heads and faucets as well.

So, our bathroom is now as we wanted it. In the next part, I would love to describe the kitchen. Thank you.

How I changed my home with MDM – Part 1

Real life situations sometimes put you in trouble. There are two possible end-results of it – either you mess things up so badly that you can’t even bother dealing with it for a single moment, the other way is – you walk through the same and try to rectify the issues on the way so that eventually, you get things at the right place.

Something like that happened when I bought this house in Los Angeles. Do I need to say that this is one of the posh cities in the world (if I’m not exaggerating) and some of the richest people in the world live here? I don’t think so. However, it’s anybody’s guess that buying the house did cost me quite a huge amount of money. But yet, I don’t know what it was, I wasn’t fully satisfied with what I had!

IMG_0917

The house I bought is big and well decorated but you know, things are not always the same as you want to be like. So, quite knowingly, I found some changes to be made in the house. Initially I was bit confused about how to perform the task and then I got to know about remodeling contractors.

Being new in the city, I had no way left except going for the internet help. Internet is a tremendous thing. You get the right help all the time if you know how to reach there. I searched with home remodeling Los Angeles and my initial expression with the result was WOW!

home-remodeling-family-room

Plenty of companies are there with their websites and the tough part was to find out the right company for my needs. I shortlisted few companies as per the service and then started enquiring the details. I must say, my wife (Jenny) had helped me a lot to get the job done rightly.

However, MDM is the name that I came up with and left Google for that time being. MDM custom Remodeling Inc., would they be able to solve my needs, will I be able to convey my requirements. These are some of the questions that I had in my mind and I wanted answers of all those questions. Asking familiars was not an option for me since all my family and friends are in other city so they are not the right choice to enquire about a company, offers service thousands of miles away.

Again, Google was my option. I searched the MDM website and tried to get even the tiny details as well. My first pick was the website testimonials. This helps you know. The original customer reviews actually give you a picture of the service and helps you decide whether or not to go with them. I would say that the testimonials didn’t seem fake to me and some of the video testimonials clearly explain the service of MDM. I was convinced and so was my wife. Then we moved on to the gallery to evidence some of the real project pictures.

Starting with home remodeling, their service is extended to room addition, floor addition, 3D design etc. and I thought this was enough to bring the changes in our new house.

So, we decided to call them and hire the contractors for the project.

In the next part, I will take you through to the ways how we changed our house with the help of MDM Custom Remodeling Inc.

Why remodeling is to be done only with professional contractors?

The house owners are often in search for ideas to bring changes in their houses. Sounds interesting but the reality says something else!

Yes, you can think of making some improvisation in the house but that’s nowhere near to a successful complete renovation of your house. However, we need to put the best step forward right?

Before things get confusing to you, let me make one thing very clear that you have to shire remodeling contractors for the task. They are the people with the required skills to successfully fulfill the needs or else, things will get all messed up. I don’t think anyone would like to have such types of consequences.

kitchen remodeling

We can take the example of Los Angeles for this context. Why is that? The reason being, this is one of the posh cities in the world with many Hollywood celebs living in there. It is also one of the highest rated cities in terms of hiring the remodeling service in the USA. Statistics show that the people are even ready to spend more than $10,000-15,000 for the project. And needless to mention, the Los Angeles remodeling contractors are skilled enough to perform the task.

OK, so you have decided to appoint remodelers for your projects. This is nice and helpful too, you will understand that working with them. But, don’t you think, you also have a role to play in this entire project? This may make you raise your eyebrows but there is no exaggeration to the fact that successful accomplishment of a home remodeling service is possible only when the fullest cooperation from the owners is received.

You will be the person to convey the changes and the improvisations to the remodeling contractors and the entire work will follow the same. There are many places in the house where you can put in a touch of elegance through the remodeling service and that’s where the skilled contractors will look for your suggestions. You got to play your cards then.

Kitchen, bathroom and drawings are some of the very common places that are often opted for by the owners to be remodeled and guess what, you really can transform the entire house with successful remodeling in those places. Of course, you will need some brilliant ideas to perform the task and that you can get only from experienced contractors.

IMG_0910

Remodeling and designing are still few of the most booming industries in the USA and in the entire world for that matter. Since the ancient times, people have got the vision to see beauty and that is something they want to capture in their house. The cultivation of remodeling service started from there.

It’s been a very common practice for the human being to chase after brilliance and home renovation service helps them achieve the same! They plan the remodeling project as well as execute the same. Here, the efficiency of the Los Angeles remodeling contractors comes into play. But, you need to be careful while hiring the contractors.

SILVIA_BEFORE_1_s

You are investing money but not at the stake of the beauty of your house. Hire only the experienced and professional contractors for any remodeling project of your house. Without apt experience, it would be difficult to deal with the mid-project obstacles. There are few renowned companies that have been providing various remodeling service to the house owners in Los Angeles. Getting in touch with them would take you near to the successful accomplishment of the same. Another important thing is to confirm the expense of the overall project before even starting it off. This will prevent misconceptions regarding this and you will be able plan the entire project accordingly. Isn’t that great?

So, is it entire house remodeling or partial, you need professional contractors right beside you.

Some basic needs to follow for successful kitchen renovation

Planning to get your footsteps into kitchen remodeling? No doubt, this is an important improvisation for all houses and you need to put your steps carefully. You will see on the internet that people are being their own GC (general contractor) and trying to remodel various parts of their houses by their own.

If this is as complicated as a kitchen renovation, I would suggest a big NO! It’s not something you attempt without any experience just by simply finding some information on the internet. It’s lot more hectic than that and do not make the mistake of getting yourself into the trouble!

Modern-kitchen-renovation(9)

Yes, you plan to remodel your kitchen without the help of any professional contractor then you are actually inviting the trouble. Lots of major and minor things are there to take into consideration and that for you need experience in the respective field which the professional contractors have. You are willing to emphasize the kitchen of your house and looking for remodeling service that’s fine but trying to get the job done by yourself won’t be a good choice.

Price is the key factor for any remodeling task. You are to spend quite a few thousands of dollars for the project and considering that, trying to walk into the shoes of professionals will not be a good bet. Aside from that, consider the overall value of your house as well. Suppose, the value of your house is around $150,000 and you are planning to hire kitchen renovation contractors and spend $30,000 for the project, doesn’t make any sense!

Modern-kitchen-renovation(10)

This means, you need to be precise about your needs and requirements in the kitchen. You can bring impressive changes just by replacing the cabinet, the wall tiles, the lighting, the rooftops and the colors of the walls. It’s different if you are looking for more free space in there, otherwise, these simple changes will do. Don’t make the mistake of over customizing the place with lots of latest stuffs, this will simply make it all messed up. So, don’t go that way and keep things simple, as much as you can.

So, now you are all set to start off the project, choose for the best contractors in the town only. There are many remodeling companies in every place and you will surely find many but, your part of responsibility would be to head for the best one only. Confused how to recognize the best amongst so many? This is obvious for most of the house owners and let me make it simple for you.

Modern-kitchen-renovation(11)

The first thing to consider in a remodeling contractor is the experience. The perfection will come through experience. Unless the remodeling contractor holds experience of many years, I don’t think, you should even make an approach! Check out for the team strength. More numbers of contractors signify even better quality of work, that’s why they are there. Furthermore, large worker base simply indicates faster accomplishment of your project.

The final thing is the budget. Do discuss that with your remodeling contractors. You cannot set the strategies after you get into the field. You need to keep a mind-set and that for you need clear picture about the budget first. This will help you plan the work accordingly.

Modern-kitchen-renovation(14)

So, renovation the kitchen or the bathroom or any other part of your house for that matter can be an enjoying experience if you involve the right people for the job.

Things you must not skip while hiring kitchen remodeling

You can consider the kitchen of your house as the doorway to your man’s heart! Why is that? Because, we know that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and you want to cook delicious dishes for your man right?

But the problem is how you would be able to do so if your kitchen is so dull in appearance. The problem is with many and we started finding for the reasons.

While almost 80% women want a refurbishment of the place, the rests are more willing shift to a new place or opt for a reconstruction of the place. So, what would you like to opt for your kitchen – remodeling or reconstruction?

We would try to find out which one is more appropriate for your house so that, next time you surely prepare the best dishes for your beloved ones in the kitchen.

You find lot many but remain in dark about who to go with.
