Adding Value with Fireplace

This is definitely a buyer’s market in this tight economy. Who knows when it will end? But, the economy doesn’t seem like it’s going to pull out of its funk any time soon. So, what do you do to sell your home?

One thing to think about is adding a new fireplace if you don’t already have one. Another thing to think about is adding a fireplace in a room where you don’t have one already. There are plenty advantages to adding a fireplace if you look at all of your options.

First of all, you have to think about how much your home is worth. Then of course, you need to figure out how much value a fireplace will add to your home. But, that can be a problem as well as a solution. If the value of your home only rises by about twenty thousand dollars, you might have spent that much in building the new fireplace in the first place.

Calling a contractor to come and look at your home will give you a better idea of what you can expect. But, you’ll pay for labor as well as supplies. A fireplace with a chimney that vents out of the roof might cost anywhere from ten to twenty thousand to build. Plus, it will take awhile so your house will be off the market all that time. I would only consider this option if your home will stand to gain a considerable amount of value through the exercise of adding a fireplace to it.

But, a ventless gel fireplace will save you a lot of money while adding a great amount of value to your home. With a fireplace insert and gel fuel, you can have a fireplace anywhere around your home. Consider a few places. In the living room of course, but also in the bedrooms and then anywhere else you can imagine. You’ll be able to put in as many fireplaces as you want for far less than one traditional fireplace that needs to be built into the structure of your home.

You can make them look just like traditional fireplaces built with stone or brick, having a mantel for decorations and a television above for a touch of class. The only difference is that you don’t have to tamper with the structure of your home when you build the chimney and the hearth. We have a design that is rock from the floor to the ceiling. Stack the rocks to form the hearth and then stack the rocks to the ceiling. Use mortar or cement to hold the structure together and make sure that you build in a two foot by three foot cave for your fireplace insert.

For possibly about five hundred dollars, you can have a great looking fireplace that burns a real fire just like a traditional fireplace. If you want the smell of wood, use a aroma diffuser and get the aroma you like. Crackling gel fuel creates the sound of a traditional fireplace. So, you’ll have everything you would normally have. That is except for the problems.

You don’t have to clean your fireplace every year. You won’t have to worry about soot building up in the fireplace and then filling your home with smoke. You won’t have to worry about cleaning your fireplace throughout the season every time you use it. Put the lid back on the can and let it sit until you are ready to enjoy it again.

The ventless gel fireplace is so versatile, you don’t have to run out of ideas. Patio fireplaces make great additions to a home you’re trying to sell. A fireplace in the bathroom will go over big as well. So, look into it. If you are trying to sell your home, invest in a fireplace and you can’t go wrong.

Semi- Custom Quality Affordable Cabinets

CABINETS FOR EVERY BUDGET AND LIFESTYLE

As you evaluate cabinetry for your remodel, you’ll notice that it comes in three basic types: stock, semi-custom and custom cabinets. To help you determine the best kind of cabinetry for your project, this overview covers the difference between the three cabinetry types, along with the advantages of each.

STOCK CABINETS

Stock cabinets provide a fast and easy way to give a kitchen a fresh new look. The cabinets are made in common cabinet sizes, and are available in a limited variety of door styles, colors and finishes. A stock brand such as Aristokraft can offer style, selection and value, along with speedy delivery, to keep your remodeling project on time and bring your vision to life.

SEMI-CUSTOM CABINETS

Semi-custom cabinets are available in more styles, features and options than stock cabinets, allowing you to create a personalized look for your kitchen, at less expense than custom cabinets. Built to order and available at cabinet dealers, semi-custom cabinets are generally delivered within four-to-eight weeks.

Semi-custom cabinets can be ordered in a wide choice of finishes, stains, paints, glazes and specialty finishing techniques such as distressing. They are also available with features such as roll out shelves, door racks and organization inserts, and can be embellished with crown moulding, cabinet legs and feet, and a range of hardware choices to create a unique look.

CUSTOM CABINETS

Custom kitchen cabinets offer the widest breadth of wood types, finishing options, construction platforms and modifications. Capable craftsmen and designers can meet any need, whether that means working from existing cabinet designs, or using a napkin-sketch approach to make new custom pieces in the manufacturing plant, ensuring that you end up with the exact cabinets you have imagined.

Kitchen and bath remodeling

We have used LKN Cabinets and Remodeling three times, first to redo our master bathroom, then for our kitchen and guest bath a few years later. Most recently they redid bathrooms and the kitchen of an investment property. If we ever need similar services we would use them again. They are amazing to work with and they never try to get you to spend more than you want…in fact, they guide you to less expensive options when appropriate. They do a great job estimating the costs and coming in on time and on estimate. I have recommended them to others who have also been totally satisfied.

Wonderful! The cabinet quality is great for the money. LKN Cabinets and Remodeling beat all of the other quotes we received. The turnaround time for the order and installation was also weeks faster than other companies. We look forward to our next remodel project and will definitely use LKN Cabinets again.

Full cabinet install for a new home

I have nothing negative to say about Brian and his team. We have been building a custom home which has been quite the challenge and out of all of the companies we dealt with, they were the best. On time, responsive, and very professional. I would recommend them to anyone for sure.

Kitchen Renovation

Brian and his crew were great to work with. Brian gave us a clear explanation of the cost involved with our renovation and he stayed true to that list. He also made suggestions to keep us within the budget. Brian responded quickly to any questions or concerns, which made the process stress-free. We are extremely happy with the end result.

Kitchen Remodel

Brian Powers of LKN Cabinets is PHENOMENAL! This was our first “renovation” and I could not have asked for a better experience. Brian was patient, HONEST, and most notably, went above and beyond. Brian is so much more than a contractor – he was basically my interior designer as well! When I couldn’t decide on a backsplash he went to the tile store and picked me up samples he thought would work. He did multiple iterations of the kitchen’s layout and somehow figured out how to get everything I wanted within budget. He is trustworthy, would always give me his honest opinion and was always reachable. I can’t wait to have him back to do my bathrooms (one day – hopefully soon!)

Replaced old oak kitchen cabinets and laminate counters with new shaker style cabinets and granite with marble back splash

We replaced all of our old oak kitchen cabinets and laminate counters with new white and gray cabinets, granite counter tops and marble tile backsplash. Brian was very helpful and was easy to reach when I had questions. I also had sketched out a design that I hoped to have in addition to the replacement cabinets. Brian took my sketch and brought it to life with his computer program and was able to design the area I wanted by exact measurements. I am very pleased with the outcome and highly recommend LKN cabinets for a kitchen remodel. Very friendly and great communication. Quality of work was awesome!

My wife & I had just purchased a new home that was in need of remodeling in the kitchen & upstairs bathrooms. After we had received a outrageous quote from another company we decided to reach out to Brian for a quote. He came out to measure and gave us our options. He even provided us a rendering on what the new cabinet layouts would look like.

Brian and his workers did a great job. He kept us informed throughout the entire process and stayed within the price that he quoted us. The new cabinets, countertops, can lighting and all that look great and we couldn’t be happier with their service. We look forward to hiring them for further projects in the future and would highly recommend them.

Kitchen Cabinets & New Counter Tops

Install was smooth and timely. When they place the order for the cabinets it is a 10 business day turn around for installation. After cabinets, it will be about 2 more weeks for counters.
