I did not have any idea that I would be remodeling my house until this last year. Even though my house was nearly 40 years old, I still thought that rooms like my kitchen and bathrooms looked okay. That all changed when my mom had her kitchen remodeled. When I went to her house for a three day visit, I was shocked at the difference. I knew then that I wanted to have my kitchen redone too, so I did a search for kitchen remodeling in bergen county nj when I returned home after my visit. I looked at several companies, but I ended up going with the one that had excellent references and one of the lowest quotes. I also liked that their timetable in getting my kitchen completely done was a week ahead of the competition’s own timetables. The main difference was that I wanted to have an island put into the center of the kitchen. I have a large kitchen, but the majority of it was just open space. I really liked how my mom’s center island made everything cozier, and it was a lot easier to get meals prepared too. For me, I was looking forward to having lunches there with my husband. It is just the two of us at home now, and the dining room table is so large and lonely unless we have our own kids visiting us. The island that the kitchen contractors built us is large enough for four people to sit at comfortably, plus there is room on the other side for dishes or even meal prep. I also had them put in a window over my kitchen sink, and that has to be my second favorite spot in the kitchen now! It looks so nice now, and I am even thinking of having my bathrooms remodeled now too.
