Adding Additional Living Space Can Dramatically Improve Day To Day Living.

One thing I can say for certain that when it’s time to remodel or adding a addition make sure it fits both residents and the character of the existing home. We can start by inventorying the existing home and how we can build upon this to meet your needs. For example, wood moldings, solid hardwood floors can be quite exquisite if we want to to bring this feature into the addition. . Taking note of our existing living space throughout our home will certainly help in developing a budget for your addition.


As we all look for ways to reduce costs, it is easy to become focused solely on our own individual needs but we are all in this together whether we like it or not. A good “win/win” scenario is not taking advantage of the other person twice, and good vendor relationships and alliances can and should work to the benefit of both customers and builder. Cabernet Design teams up with vendors that have commitment to manufacturing their products in USA. There are endless contractors buying the cheapest products for maximum profit. We support the American worker while buying quality built products to deliver a great finished product at a reasonable price. For More Information


Question: When was the last time you saw the cost of your monthly energy expenses drop.


Advanced framing, insulation, windows, and exterior facade all play important role in energy consumption. There are other financial incentives to buy or remodel to green building standards. Like any other industry, many banks and credit unions recognize the green market trend, and the necessity to offer at least something 'eco' in their product line. So speak to your institution and ask what programs are available. For More Information




How Bad Design Can Affect Your Life in the Kitchen!

You are about to set out on one of the most intimidating experiences you’ll ever encounter as a homeowner, the design or remodeling of a kitchen.


For most homeowners kitchen designing or the (kitchen remodel) will be an intimidating experience. It all begins with the designer. One of the most prevalent misconceptions is that you don’t need to understand the process of cooking to design a proper kitchen. Rarely, if ever, is a designer asked if he or she knows how to cook. And yet, the kitchen is a complex space—so complex, in fact, that it deserves the services of a specialist. Food for thought. For More Information




Cabinetry can dominate a kitchen design budget.

Modern Style Cabinets
Contemporary Style Cabinets
Traditional Style

Solid wood is a wonderful material to work with and to see, but not the best material to use for cabinet construction. Sheet good, like plywood, particleboard, or medium density fiberboard are logical choice for the construction of cabinet. Seasonal wood movement that would cause problems if solid wood were used are not an issue, and its a responsible environmental use of raw material, as well as a considerable cost savings to the construction of the kitchen cabinet.

Countertops:The Bottom Line, is Work Space


It’s natural and optimally efficient for us to spread out our work so that everything is easy to see and easy to reach. When we don’t have enough horizontal or side-to-side space, we start to work vertically. In other words, we stack. Containers are placed on top of containers; utensils and packages are placed on top of refrigerators or ranges or in sinks, or anywhere we can find space. Does this sound painfully familiar? There is an answer. It comes in the form of the 30-inch deep counter. For More Information




How big should my pantry be?


This can be relativity simple to answer. How big is your family going to be? The larger the family, the larger the pantry. Granted, some kitchens can only support cabinet space; others can devote a small room. Larger pantry areas may include extra refrigeration units. The location of your pantry is important in saving you time in meal preparation. If your kitchen can only support a dedicated pantry cabinet, it should be located central to counter space in preparation of food. If space permits, a larger room next to the kitchen is perfect. Avoid locating a pantry in remote locations or you will find yourself making many trips to and from the pantry area, adding time to your food preparations. For More Information



Bathrooms is one improvement, that can increase the value of your home.


Some homeowners are fortunate enough to have adequate bathrooms, but some are not. The American home can have as many as three bathrooms per occupant. Most homes in other countries are happy to have one indoor bathroom with running water. That said, many American families grow, and soon need additional bathrooms to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The per square foot dollars spent on bathrooms rivals any other investment in your home, so important consideration should be given whether or not such an investment is warranted.
