Check List for Kitchen & Bath Remodeling

Brandy Souza of Kitchen Views

Kitchen Views at National Lumber enjoyed hosting our first EM NARI Networking event on April 16 along with co-host Allstate Glass. Two of our PRO Force salesmen, who specialize in working with remodelers, were there discussing current building projects.

Many demonstration areas were available, including:

•  Allstate Glass frameless glass shower enclosures and back-painted glass backsplashes

•  Schrock and Dynasty representatives showed our vignettes of their cabinetry products and answered questions

•  Häfele introduced their new cabinet lighting that is installed in our two new kitchen vignettes

•  One of our Mansfield designers introduced our new cabinet re-facing program

•  Closet Factory showed their new finishes for custom closet products

Look for more photos in our Facebook and Google+ albums.

The night was filled with food, drinks and fantastic company. We had big winners too! Nancy from Masters Touch won a gift certificate to Closet factory. Dave from Home Repairs Carpentry in Norwood won a gift certificate to Allstate Glass, and Dave from Miller Construction won a Häfele tool kit and gift certificate for their product line.

But the biggest winner is the EM NARI scholarship fund. Annually, a scholarship is awarded to an immediate family member of an EM NARI member who is a high school graduating senior who has been accepted as a full-time student to an accredited college or university in any program of study. Thanks to everyone who attended we collected $800 for the scholarship fund.

Builders had a chance to see many of the new products going into kitchens now. Many of them feel the market for remodeling is strengthening. Adding these products to any renovation is sure to add value to a customer’s home.

An Amazing Hideaway Closet – An organized storage space helps you enjoy life

Creating a space that affords you the luxury of streamlining everyday tasks is an ongoing objective for most of us. With daily chores and household tasks to be done, having your living space organized will allow you to spend more time doing things you love. No one wants to get bogged down sorting through a stack of papers or spend hours looking for that something you put in a “safe place.”  Have you ever hidden something in your closet for a little while, only to find it years later? That closet just may need some TLC to make it function fully for you.

To get you started, grab a paper and pen to write down your ideas and answers to the next few questions. Spend some time looking at your closet. Think about where it’s located and how it’s used.

  • How big is the space?ventilated shelving unit for storage and organization
  • Who uses the space and how often?
  • What is stored in there?
  • What do you need to store away for daily or weekly use?
  • Where do you store seasonal items?
  • Is the space used in a practical way?
  • Or are things just piled in there?

Once you read your own responses, you will have a better understanding of how that closet can be better utilized. If the project seems overwhelming, you may benefit by working with a professional closet designer. Our Kitchen Views division recommends Closet Factory for custom closet design. If you wish to work with a more economical budget, we can help with that! One of the many services we offer is installation of ventilated closet shelving systems, through our Pro Insulators division.

Depending on where the closet is and how it will be used, shelving is always a must have. Whether you opt for a custom closet cabinetry system or a budget friendly ventilated shelving system, the ultimate goal is to design a space that fits your specific needs. Depending on the design and style you like, you can decide if you want to include drawers or baskets, where you want hanging rods and space for loose items and small storage. Decorative boxes and accessories can be added to store things such as hats, shoes and handbags.

The fall is a great time to start a closet redesign. This time of year brings the end of summer, the start of the school year and preparations for the upcoming winter and holiday seasons. Each occasion has items associated with it that you may need to shuffle in and out of storage. Having a well-organized system will make moving things around more manageable and make more efficient use of your time.

Making your spaces organized, and practicing a more streamlined life, is easier than ever, with tons of options sure to suit your individual needs. Find ideas you like and create the space to work for you.

Now that you’re not spending hours looking for that gift you know you hid in the closet a while ago, what will you do?
