5 Kitchen Remodels to Get Excited About

M Bruno

Kitchen remodels have a bad reputation. Kitchens are the central hub of any home and removing that... well... sometimes it can get stressful. However, through all the turmoil, there is a glimmer of light at the end of the hallway, a brand new modern kitchen.

A Monmouth County Builder's Perspective

M Bruno

Thoughts From A Local Monmouth County Builder

The most exciting part of being a remodeling & building professional is seeing transformation. An empty lot in the course of a few months can become a brand new home or business. With the growth of a new structure also comes growth as a community, that new place has new people. Over the course of a couple years, we can see communities prosper and even take on their own attitude. 

As a Monmouth County builder, we've seen this in our own community. We live in and help build our community in a very literal sense. But ultimately, we build for the people that will inhabit our finished project. The most beautiful home can't reach its full potential without people actively using it.

 

 

 

Ultimately, this boils down to perspective. Without the proper point of view, we are going to work everyday nailing drywall in order to start the next project. However, these projects are much more to us than that. Each step of the process has to be done correctly and keeping in mind that this will space will mean a lot to someone. And with that, it all becomes worth it.

Think White

Lisa Calabro

Bathroom remodeling can be a daunting task and an expensive one too. If yours is an old home, you have inherited someone else’s bathroom and you don't know where to begin. The color of the tub barely matches with the sink or toilet. Or maybe you took extra time in cleaning the floor and the bleach slowly disappeared the pattern on the tile flooring. The room itself never really seemed big enough and now with a big family, it doesn't work at all.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Lisa Calabro
The bathroom is one of the most used spaces in the home. Like kitchens, these spaces need to be updated from time to time. Just ask Stone Creek Builders the importance of having it up to date. If there is not enough money in the budget for a full scale remodel, there are little things that can be done that can make the biggest impact. Take for instance the bathroom medicine cabinet area. It is one of the focal points of the room, and it doesn't cost much to replace. Yet, this one change out can have a great impact on the look and functionality of the space.

No Shoes Needed

Lisa Calabro

If you’ve ever stepped out of a warm shower or bath and onto a cold tiled floor, then you know all too well the discomfort of floors without heat. Having a floor warming system in your home can make a big difference and add a much needed level of comfort.

This type of floor warming system is known as electric flooring and Schluter Ditra Heat is one of the best systems out there. Ditra Heat, installed by Stone Creek Builders, uses an uncoupling membrane, heating cables and thermostats to keep your tile and wood floors warm.

Lisa Calabro

Have you ever heard of doing spring cleaning to prepare for the summertime? Well, this may be the perfect time to do a little fall cleaning. This article is going to give you some ideas for what you can do to get your house ready for the winter.

I can remember when my kids were very young growing up. I would anxiously wait for the first day of school so I could work around the house. When they left in the morning to get on the school bus, I was in their rooms tearing them apart.

Kitchen Islands, heart of the home

Lisa Calabro

A century ago, people ‘dressed’ for dinner and dined in a separate room. Today, most people congregate in a less formal setting. Kitchens with a combination hearth room or family room are considered the ‘heart of the home’. This relaxed social experience for families touches the five senses; sight, smell, sound and taste and feel.

Fall is Coming

Lisa Calabro

Ignoring these tips can find you suffering later on from issues with heating, frozen pipes and other unfortunate cold weather situations. Once these issues surface, it will likely cost you more money and a whole lot of stress versus taking the steps now to protect your home.
