Best Time to Start Home Remodeling Projects – OMG!

When is the best time to start home remodeling projects? During the holidays, of course! Say what? Yes, you read that right. The holidays are the perfect time to start planning a renovation project, and here are three reasons why. 

  1. It takes time
  2. Delays are bound to happen
  3. Income Tax refunds can help

Kitchen and Bath Overhauls Take Time

Kitchen and Bath overhauls don’t happen overnight. There is much time needed planning, designing, and ordering before we can even think about demolishing your space. Of course, actual times vary between the size of the project and the complexity of the remodel. However, we can safely say that none of our projects will ever start with us demolishing first. The demo of your space can take seven to ten days. Not to mention, it’s easier for us to erase a line on paper and redraw it than it is for us to construct and drywall an area of the wall we’ve knocked down. When planning your kitchen or bath remodel, take your time. Please don’t rush into decisions because, ultimately, you need to be satisfied once we complete the job. So, take as much time as you need planning and designing that new space.

Delays Are Bound to Happen

Delays don’t necessarily mean that someone messed up. Setbacks happen because of long-lead times that our clients and we experience when ordering custom cabinetry, stone products, and other specialty items. Once an order is approved, some of these items take up to two months to build before they are ready for delivery. Other setbacks can include not being able to obtain permits. There have been cases where city permits take longer than expected. Remember, we are only talking about a few of the setbacks right now.

Income Tax Refund Relief

Homeowners often don’t realize how much a renovation and construction projects cost until it has been thoroughly planned out. That is when starting to plan in November and December for a remodel scheduled for February or March becomes necessary. Not only will it allow for some time to save money, but it would be perfect timing for that income tax refund to provide some additional financial assistance. So what are you waiting for; get your family involved while they are around for the holidays and start planning. Don’t wait to start. Give us a call we will gladly walk you through our process and help you get the space of your dreams!

 

CABINET, FLOORING, AND COUNTERTOP ADVICE BY OMG!

Are you looking for advice on cabinet, flooring, and countertop choices for your next home remodeling project? Know exactly what you want but now are overwhelmed by the material and vendor selections?

OMG! Kitchen & Bath is here to help San Antonio homeowners navigate the crazy world of remodeling. OMG! is certified to sell floors, countertops, and cabinets from MSI and ProCraft Cabinetry. We are a one-stop-shop eliminating stress by taking away the hassle of picking the right vendor.

Top Choice for Flooring and Countertops

Floors make up the majority of a home. However, choosing your dream flooring requires a little more than just finding the one that “looks” the best. Consider these three factors when choosing flooring materials.

  1. maintenance
  2. durability
  3. costs 

How often do you mop? Do you want to mop often? Do you plan on polishing and sealing tiles? What about refinishing wood flooring? These are things to consider when you make a flooring choice commitment. 

How much traffic will your floors not to mention your countertops have? Granite countertops are extremely durable and tough. Therefore, if the possibility exists that there is someone in your home who likes to skip the cutting board and starts cutting right on your countertop, well, you might want to consider marble. Marble and quartz, both are equally beautiful, durable, and are high-quality! 

Our vendor, MSI, is North America’s leading supplier of natural stone, porcelain, ceramic, and luxury vinyl tile. Additionally, MSI is affordable and provides reasonably priced products. Now you can afford beautiful, trend-forward surfaces!

Top Choice for Cabinets 

Finding the perfect cabinets is challenging enough without adding the number of vendor choices to that list. Two things to consider when selecting cabinets. 

  1. color
  2. style

Cabinets come in many different colors. Therefore, it’s important that you have a vendor with some color choices. The wrong color can make a space look cramped. The right color can brighten a room. Your cabinet color choices can set the tone for the rest of your home. Lucky for you we have a vendor with many color choices!

Besides needing color choices, a good vendor should also have various cabinet styles. Style is what ultimately will turn your space into a rustic, elegant, modern, casual, or formal area.

ProCraft Cabinetry gives our clients the highest quality and excellence in products. Their goal is to offer quality cabinets at a considerably lower price, without compromising quality and integrity. Manufacturing their cabinets gives them an advantage over other competitors because they pass their savings onto our clients.
