Classic Brass
Apres Collection
We talked about investing in your cabinetry now lets talk about a brand we can count on to add that extra spark to that cabinetry. Classic Brass was founded in 1996 and coined as the first manufacturing company of handcrafted, traditional solid brass hardware established in the United States since 1946. They take pride in being leaders of handcrafting high-quality, solid brass hardware. Their finishes are second to none with eight different finishing processes. Classic Brass is able to provide virtually any finish you desire. Pictured pulls are Satin Nickel x Matte Black split finish.

Hudson Valley Lighting is one of those companies that do it right. They have everything you could dream of for your kitchen space. They combine modern, classic, contemporary, industrial - you name it. Their timeless designs meet classic cool and work well in any space.

LET'S TALK . . .
Kitchen Remodels

Spring is just around the corner and that means that thoughts of remodeling are in full swing. This time we are want to talk about kitchen remodels. They have the potential to get overwhelming very quickly, but we want to walk you through a couple of things that could help the process go smoothly.

The Facts
...it can get messy, really quick.
It's no secret that remodeling a kitchen can bring a lot, and we mean...a lot of stress. The first step to avoiding a remodel disaster is developing a realistic timeline of events and sticking to it. The designing, ordering, and install process times can all vary, but being in constant contact with all the hands that touch your remodel (designers, installers, etc.) can help avoid some of the disasters of getting behind schedule. In the blog this month we talk more about timelines and how long you should usually plan for. Check it out.

Investing
 ...the why
When you are doing a kitchen remodel you are probably taking on this feat for a good reason. Chances are you aren't happy with what your current kitchen looks like. Maybe the layout isn't working, or the cabinets are outdated, perhaps it's all just stuck in the '60s. Depending on what you are looking to replace it may be the best idea to invest in the things that matter. Spending more on quality materials will go a long way. Things like cabinets, appliances, and lighting are on the top of that list. Head over to the blog to read more about investing in the things that matter when you are doing a remodel.
