Your home is probably the single most important investment you will ever make. Along with the living area, the kitchen and bathroom are the most significant part of that investment. So consider carefully before deciding what actions to take in maximizing your homes potential.
If you are thinking about rejuvenating your kitchen or bathroom, here are some valuable guidelines to consider:
- Establish a budget. How much can you realistically afford? This may help determine whether you choose to reface or replace.
- Are you interested in rearranging your cabinets and appliances? If so then your only option is a replace (remodel).
- Do some research. Check out the latest styles and upgrades. Do you want a traditional look or a more contemporary one?
- How much inconvenience, in terms of time and accessibility, would you be willing and able to accommodate?
- Secure estimates from at least 3 contractors. Eliminate any candidate that does not keep an appointment.
- Ask questions and ask for references.
“Creative, knowledgeable and patient are just a few words to describe Arthur of Pretty Kitchen's! In our first meeting Arthur was aware that I had a general "vision", however, I had no idea how to pull the vision together. Working with Arthur, it was as if he could "see" what I was thinking. If you are even thinking of creating change in your home, please consider this extraordinarily gifted human before making a final decision (I met with 4 vendors before making my decision) ! I am forever grateful for Arthur's patience and guidance...the finished product is beyond my expectations!”
What is kitchen remodeling?
We will completely empty the space that you plan on remodeling, down to the existing walls. If you want to expand or reduce the space, that will require construction and possibly plumbing and electrical wiring. If there is to be a new floor it will require the removal of the existing floor covering.
We are happy to work from plans provided by your decorator or architect. Or Pretty Kitchens can draw up a plan based on our consultation with you, offering suggestions based on our years of professional experience and expertise. We’ll design the cabinetry and general layout to maximize your usable space and convenience.
As a custom cabinet maker. we build our cabinets with the finest materials, using professional glue and screw joints. We will recommend showrooms for floor, wall and counter coverings. We will help you choose a cabinet style from our catalog and we will submit a finished sample for your approval. We can provide construction, plumbing, electrical. masonry and painting craftsmen. Or if you prefer, you can use your favorite suppliers. Depending on the extent of your remodel. you can expect to have a waiting period of three to four weeks for shop time and then one to two weeks in your home.
To maximize the results of remodeling your kitchen and bathrooms you should consider a range of options and accessories that will fulfill your particular needs: counter space, counter top and splash material, an island, storage, ease of access to cooking and baking equipment, cabinet material and style, under cabinet lighting, and amenities such as a pullout spice rack, a popup mixing bowl shelf, and silverware drawer, to name just a few.
“They were excellent from start to finish! Arthur was a gentlemen throughout the process and Pablo was a perfectionist, improving on the cabinets above and beyond the call of duty....highly recommend!”

“Found Arthur on Yelp. Loved the reviews and pics that I saw. Called him on Easter Sunday and he actually returned my call right away. He was at my house by Tuesday giving me an estimate. I told him straight up that my budget was minimal. I feel he was honest and really tried to come up with options that would help me stay within my budget. In the end- I spent more than what I had originally planned- but the kitchen is awesome. I'm so happy. I can be very high maintenance and Arthur rolled with it. He was patient and helped me come up with solutions. At one point I was going to buy a very expensive sink- and Arthur told me he could get the exact sink for 1/2 the cost. I will post photos at some point.. My biggest compliment to Arthur is that he was very honest with me and that he ALWAYS either answered my call or he called me right back. I've worked with contractors in teh past who just leave you hanging..but Arthur never did that. I highly recommend him!!!”
“I wish I could give more stars!!! I am incredibly happy with the superior craftsmanship and professionalism of Pretty Kitchens. I was a first time renovator and very inexperienced. Arthur helped me make great decisions and his collaboration was invaluable. At the end of the day I wound up with my dream kitchen at an incredibly fair price!”
