Our certified kitchen designers installed high quality Pendleton maple cabinets by Showplace with a traditional overlay. A sandstone matte white finish was used to complete the look in style. Cabinetry was installed all throughout the room, offering plenty of storage space and making it easy to hide any clutter created by pots and pans.

Project Spotlight: Newark, Delaware Luxury Kitchen Remodel

Posted: Thursday, August 21st 2014 in Remodeling

When our clients in Newark, Delaware approached us for a kitchen renovation, we set out to make the room design more practical with a newer and more stylish aesthetic. The project featured custom cabinetry, countertops, and appliances, with finishing touches taken care of from the tiling to the plumbing fixtures and beyond.

Custom Cabinetry & Countertops

We installed custom cabinetry that helped us create a more intelligent kitchen design with storage dispersed throughout the room. Inset Beaded Prescott Maple white cabinets by Decorá were used throughout the space. To maximize functionality, roll-out and tilt down trays were included in certain cabinet designs, along with trash can and spice rack pull outs, tray dividers, and Lazy Susans. A microwave drawer was installed as well for added convenience. Hardware by Top Knobs adds an elegant touch with easy-to-use cabinet handles in varying shapes and sizes.

Maximizing Functionality in the Kitchen

Posted: Thursday, July 24th 2014 in Remodeling

A More Practical Kitchen Design

New advances in technology and kitchen design have made things easier on the homeowner in more ways than one. With a smart kitchen design and the right features, you can now enjoy an easier cooking, cleaning, and food preparation experience—not to mention a more organized overall space. So if your current layout is lacking in functionality, now’s the time to consider an upgrade. We’ve got just the ideas to get you started!

Quartz Countertops

Quartz is becoming a more popular choice over granite, and maintenance is a major reason for that. Quartz countertops are non-porous and virtually maintenance-free, so they’re perfect for a practical kitchen design. Unlike granite, they don’t have to be sealed and they don’t require routine maintenance every two years. Most manufacturers advertise that the only cleaning solution you’ll ever need is warm water and soap—and at Bath, Kitchen and Tile Center, we ... Read More

Quartz Countertops: the Next Big Thing?

Posted: Wednesday, May 21st 2014 in Countertops

For how popular granite has become in kitchen and bathroom remodeling, it is hard to remember that in 1994, just 20 years ago, the idea of using a natural stone for countertops was foreign to consumers. Granite was not only incredibly expensive at the time, but you would be lucky to find any real satisfying variation of colors available, as most locations only offered two or three different options. The granite that you could purchase was based upon where you lived, as importing/exporting anything outside of a local region was non-existent at the time.

At the turn of the century, however, you couldn’t count how many homeowners were replacing the solid-color laminate and acrylic countertops of the past with stunning and unique granite countertops, completely revolutionizing the remodeling market. Companies simply couldn’t provide enough granite to meet demands only months after granite was relatively irrelevant in the remodeling ... Read More

The Raised Dishwasher

Posted: Thursday, May 15th 2014 in Remodeling

Make kitchen clean-up easy with a raised dishwasher! It’s simple. By elevating your dishwasher just a few inches off the ground, you’ll never have to bend as far to load or unload the dishes—significantly reducing the strain on your back and knees! At the same time, it can reduce the time it takes to clean up for an easier cooking experience overall, making it the perfect choice for those of all ages, genders, and even individuals with disabilities.

Benefits of a Raised Dishwasher

A raised dishwasher, also known as an elevated dishwasher, offers many benefits. It’s a particularly perfect fit for the elderly, as well as for those who are pregnant or have disabilities that make bending down difficult or painful. But it’s also appealing for any homeowner who wants to improve the functionality and aesthetic of an existing kitchen design. Benefits of an elevated dishwasher include:

  • Ease of use
  • Convenience
  • Multiple style options
  • Less ... Read More

What to Expect from a Bathroom Remodel

Posted: Thursday, April 17th 2014 in Bathrooms

A bathroom remodel can leave you feeling rejuvenated, with newer, sleeker features and an improved layout that matches your vision. But planning a bathroom remodel can also make you feel stressed and anxious if you don’t know what to expect and don’t feel prepared as your project begins.

Planning a Bathroom Remodel

While our bathroom remodelers always strive to be as minimally invasive as possible, and we always clean up after ourselves at the end of the remodel, you can expect a certain degree of change as we work to get your bathroom finished. This is especially true in high traffic areas—like the main bathroom guests use or the master bath.

In order to keep your stress levels down, it’s important you plan for a number of things:

  • Unless you are only replacing certain portions of the bathroom, you likely will not be able to use it—or have limited access to it—during the ... Read More

Want to update your kitchen, but unsure what you can afford? Kitchen remodeling costs can vary greatly depending on the look you’re trying to achieve and your budget—but even those hoping for a lower price tag can find ways to upgrade the look and feel of the room, without breaking the bank in the process.

Kitchen Remodeling Costs

But if you’re under a budget or you’re happy with the existing layout, you can still upgrade key aspects of the room to create a newer looking space. See the average costs below to upgrade the kitchen, either partially or fully:
