Three Steps to Perfect Countertops

  1. Research - This process can be as tedious as it is creative, so this is where a professional Project Manager can help narrow down your options.
  2. Select - The materials you choose should bridge the gap between what you want and who you are. In other words, don’t choose delicate materials if you aren’t prepared to maintain them.
  3. Install - Poor installation can make any material look shabby so make sure you find a contractor who is able to implement your design plan.

Choose Carefully

Kitchen counters should not only accommodate your cooking needs but also add beauty and elegance to the most trafficked room in the house. This is why the type of countertop you choose for your kitchen is a crucial decision both for overall design and functionality. You not only need to find a material and color that fits into your kitchen’s overall look—whether its country charm or Soho chic—but you also need to consider your family’s needs. Some materials, for example are easier to clean than others and a few need costly and regular maintenance. To find the right product—whether it’s a Brazilian granite countertop or a custom concrete countertop—talk with one of our project managers today!

Kitchen Cabinets

Your kitchen cabinet doors are often the most prominent feature of your kitchen, so choosing the perfect style and material for your kitchen’s design is essential. Whether you crave a traditional or modern feel, there’s a perfect cabinet door for every home from a hip Soho studio fit with high end glass to a sprawling Bergen County range that boasts boast the classic comforts of natural wood.

Cabinet Types

There are three basic types of kitchen cabinets: stock, semi stock and custom made. Stock or prefabricated cabinet doors are the least expensive and custom cabinets, because they’re designed and fabricated specifically for your kitchen, are the most expensive.

Stock Cabinets

Stock cabinets are the standard traditional cabinets installed in most homes across America and since they have a short lead-time for both ordering and receiving and are generally inexpensive, they make a wise choice for the budget-conscious homeowner or do-it-yourselfers. Stock cabinets come in a range of styles and materials so chances are you’ll find one that fits your kitchen’s look.

Custom Cabinets

Custom cabinets are designed and fabricated to fit your specific needs. Not only are they perfectly matched in material and color to your kitchen’s design, but they can also be crafted around unusual architectural features or appliances like an over-sized fridge or dishwasher. Choose from green materials like bamboo or palm to make your custom kitchen a sustainable as well as beautiful addition to your home.

Semi Stock Cabinets

Semi-stock cabinets offer a compromise for those who want the adaptability of custom cabinets with the affordability of stock. Semi stock cabinets are usually about 25% more expensive than standard stock cabinets but offer some flexibility in sizing so you can work around unusual features or appliances. They usually have a lead-time of 5-6 weeks so require a little more planning than stock cabinets.

Cabinet Configurations

There are also three ways in which cabinets are configured within in your kitchen: they either sit on the floor with a counter on top, are attached to the wall, or sit on the floor and extend to the ceiling.
Base Kitchen Cabinets
In this type of configuration, the cabinet sits on your kitchen floor with a countertop fastened on top.

Wall-Mounted Cabinets

Wall cabinets attach to your wall either flush against the ceiling or as floaters. Typically, wall cabinets are about 12″ deep and about 30″ high but most are also available in height increments of 6″–ie 36″ and 42.”

Tall Cabinets

Full-height cabinets extend from your floor to your ceiling and come in several depths, the two most popular being 12″ and 24.” The standard height starts at 84″ and increases in 6″ increments so even taller kitchen ceilings can accommodate these spacious and stunning cabinets.
