Furniture Grade Kitchen Cabinets

This Dallas homeowner wanted more cabinet space and storage as well as a completely updated kitchen. We installed Renowned Cabinetry Series 21 Frameless Full Overlay in a bright white finish. Cabinet accessories included a Safety-Susan, Soft Close Doors & Drawers. All lower doors with pull outs. Cabinet accessories included tray dividers and LED lights.  The Flooring, Backsplash, and Countertops were selected from MSI Stone.com

One really unique aspect about this project is that we documented these kitchen cabinets from design to the factory where they were built, the installation, and after the final walk-thru. Check out the video below

Project Year: 2018  - Project Cost: $25,001 - $50,000

Watch how these cabinets became Renowned Cabinets as they go through the design process, the factory, and installation.

Another Kitchen Remolding and Renovation by your North Dallas Kitchen Remodeling Professionals – Renowned Renovation

The new owners of this 1980’s ranch style home in North Dallas’ Prestonwood neighborhood had the house they were looking for, but wanted their kitchen to have an open, modern feel. To open up the kitchen, we took out two walls and an outdated wet bar, and added three LVL beams to create a large, open space. The owners wanted their kitchen to have a centerpiece that would accentuate their modern space, and decided to go with a waterfall style island that would be large enough to serve as an informal dining area. With these custom cabinets, quartz counter-tops, glass tile back-splash, and light colors, the end product has become a focal point that the family can enjoy for years to come.

Don’t Get Ripped Off on Granite Countertops This Summer!

granite countertopsAngie’s List has a warning out for anyone looking for new countertops. In a syndicated column appearing in newspapers around the country, Angie’s List writer Oseye Boyd warns homeowners to watch out for deals that are too good to be true.

For instance, if someone offers you a great deal on discount granite for $29.99 a square foot, then they may be hiding the true costs of the job in the labor costs. It’s easy to offer a low square-foot price when you’re actually charging $500 per hour for your time and labor.

That’s why you should always ask what exactly is included in the square-foot price, to avoid surprises down the line. For instance, some contractors might charge you extra for the granite countertop edge, driving up the price after you’ve accepted the job.

And if someone says they have some wonderful granite countertops left over from a previous job, run the other way.

Bathroom Remodeling Tips: How To Get a Fair Price on Granite Countertop Installation
Boyd writes for Angie’s List that entry-level granite countertops usually cost $55 to $65 per square foot, while luxury materials often cost more. But when asking for a quote from home improvement contractors, ask for a quote on the entire job, not just the materials.
One granite countertop expert warned, “Don’t worry about the square foot cost because that’s such a small part of it. Unless you know what’s included in the square foot, it’s so irrelevant.”

Whether you’re looking for new granite countertops for your kitchen, bathroom, or a really weird bedroom, there’s a reason this material is so popular. Not only is it an attractive surface that somehow looks both modern and classic simultaneously, but properly cared-for granite countertops can last for 50 years or more without a single scratch.

Compared to most other materials inside the average bathroom, that makes granite nigh indestructible.

In a survey from the National Association of Home Builders, bathroom remodeling was the #1 most requested job, and 78% of all home renovations included bathroom remodeling. And in a survey from popular home improvement site Houzz, 60% of users said they were planning to remodel the master bathroom.

Because bathrooms are some of the most used rooms in a home, and because they’re subject to high moisture levels, these rooms need renovation more frequently than most rooms. So long as you get a fair price from reputable bathroom remodeling contractors, granite countertops are in ideal choice for homeowners. They’re some of the most durable, attractive types of countertops available today.

About Counter Top Costs

Project budgets and cost is always an important consideration. Of course, if money is no object, then you’ll just choose the counter top material that suits your style and lifestyle. Even if you have a tight budget you still have plenty of options to satisfy your design dreams.

Basically the cost of a counter top installation is the sum of material cost plus fabrication (custom cutting) cost plus installation labor cost. The percentage of each is different depending mostly on the chosen material.

Marble & Granite Counter Tops Price: $40-$200 sq/ft.
The price variation is almost exclusively due to the color/variety of material you choose. Some stones are just more rare than others. But countertop edges, slab thickness, number of cut-outs, unique installation issues, etc. can all influence final cost.

Quartz Counter Top Prices: $45-$120 sq ft.
Difference is mainly attributed to different brands, colors and finishes. Silestone prices can be a bit different than Cambria, etc. The average installation cost is very similar to average cost of granite countertops installed ($50-$60 sq/ft.).

Concrete Counter Top: $75-$150 sq ft.
For this surface most of the cost is in the installation, which is almost an art to do well.

Solid-Surface Corian Counter Top: $30-$90 sq ft.
At one time Corian was priced similarly to granite, but prices have come down some.

Soapstone Counter Tops: $70-$100 sq. ft., but can run up to $150 for premium slabs.
Slab quality varies a lot. The harder (lower % talc) the better. However, soapstone is soft enough that DIY installation is possible saving a bundle.

Glass Counter Tops: $80-$120 sq. ft.
Price range of recycled glass counter tops is mainly in the brand and material color choice.

Granite Tile Counter Tops: $20-$60 sq ft.
You save a lot on both material (tile is thinner) and installation, which can be done by a competent handyman (maybe you!) vs. a slab install that must be done by experienced pros.

Laminate Counter Tops: $5-$30 sq ft.
Some laminates are better than others and certain colors and finishes are more expensive, but you can really save on installation by a handyman or yourself!

Choosing The Best Counter Top has a lot to do with your needs for any particular room or location and requires a bit more thought and effort than simply buying your favorite color or what your friends and neighbors have.

True, granite counter tops will provide superior performance in nearly every type of installation with quartz counter tops a close second. A couple consumer magazines rate quartz above granite, however, they never account for the fact that damage to quartz is almost always permanent, while damage to granite is almost never permanent.

So, call us and we help you take your time and give thoughtful consideration to all factors: color, pattern, finish, installation location, frequency and intensity of use, cleaning, maintenance and cost.

It’s a bit of a puzzle, but Renowned Renovation will work with you and give you enough useful information to get you started on the right foot… with confidence in your choice material and the success of your Dallas counter top project.
