Remodeling a kitchen takes time (a before and after post)

Don't believe everything you see on TV, a remodel takes more than 24 hours, or even a weekend, as HGTV might have you believe.  You might not remember a kitchen we featured a few years back CLICK HERE.  For many reasons, the final touches take the longest, but we are here to report back that the final touches are done:

Custom cabinetry from Deans Cabinets

Fabric from Duralee  

The moral to this story is:  be patient and don't settle for something you don't want.  It did take us some time to find just the right sized hardware for these cafe curtains.  It was our rep, Kristy, from Fabricut, who walked in with just what we had been looking for!  Our client was excited to see that the scale was just what she had in mind, and also stayed with her plan for the pretty embroidered linen she found almost 3 years ago! 

FYI, just because we can't find exactly what you have in mind today, doesn't mean we won't find it later----and later might just be a few months, not 3 years.

Pantry with new open shelving added.  
It's fun to look at the photos side-by-side:



Although we don't sell cabinets or tile, we're here to help you plan your color scheme and add the finishing touches to your new or remodeling project.  Call us to inquire about our hourly service fees.  Did you know: when purchasing furniture from Madison Lane, we will not only help you choose the best fabrics and finishes, but also make sure the pieces will fit in your room (just one of the services we provide for free to our clients).

It's probably not too early to start making a plan, remember, it can take some time!

Finally some one gets it. There's a lot of planning that goes in to kitchen remodeling. If you think this is a quick process like they show on tv your are mistaken. If you go to fast you can screw something up. Take your time and do it the right way. Thanks for the post!

Hi, We recently moved to Jasper County and are in the process of Renovation of our Home that we just bought. Can you give is a rough Idea how much it would cost to Remodel a Kitchen of around 200 Sq. feet, or recommend some good local company?

Madison Lane said...

Matthew, we cannot help you on actual renovation costs, we leave that to the contractors. Much of what we do on those types of jobs is by the hour: advice on paint and stain colors, along with granite, quartz or laminate choices. There are several cabinet companies in the area we have worked with and others we have heard good reports. If you want to give us a call, we'd be happy to pass on our information.

Totally agree with this. Those who do not have the patience are not going to get the best results of their kitchen renovation. I frequently have a difference of opinion in this aspect with my better half. I would really love to get some new color schemes for my kitchen and am willing to wait for getting the best results. Is it possible for you to give an estimate for a kitchen around 350 square feet? I cannot find any option to contact you here. Thanks in advance.

Matt, our contact information is on the first page of the blog. We don't do estimates, but leave that to the contractor. For color schemes, we would charge by the hour, so feel free to come by the shop and talk to us about that, we would require a visit before we go to the site.
