hile Murfreesboro is growing
faster than ever on the outskirts
the trend to remodel continues
to stay steady. We have had the pleasure of
remodeling many kitchens and bathrooms
over the past 6 months and have several
planned over the summer. Typically most
consumers remodel in the spring and
fall leaving summer time to enjoy
their home with friends and family.
I decided to contact past remodeling
customers and question them on their
favorite changes that were made and if
there were any regrets etc.
Previous customers were most
satisfied with their finish selections.
Painted cabinetry is the most popular
with white in first place. Many homes
built in the 90’s had white cabinetry
installed and when updated these
customers went back with white but
chose an upgrade in the quality of
paint and durability. Cabinetry going
to the ceiling is another must have
for most remodels. Whether 8,9, or
even 10 foot ceilings, going all the
way up was a top priority. Large
open seating islands are popular with a
prep sink if possible. Integrated appliances
(panels for a seamless installation) 5
burner cooktops, double ovens and or a
speed cook ovens are favorites also. LED
and under cabinet lighting in addition to
pendant style lighting were mentioned.
We have wonderful lighting showrooms in
Murfreesboro to help steer our customers
toward the look they are trying to achieve.
I must say there were very few regrets.
Not going with a gas cook top or stove was
the biggest regret. Most consumers that
remodel their kitchens have decided that
they like to cook! With healthy eating a
major concern and time another, gas is the
best to utilize both. Having a true recycling
center was also mentioned. We typically
always have a cabinet designated for a trash
can, but most families recycle. If there is
enough space to justify a four compartment
pullout they said it would have been great.
We have created many mantle style hood
cabinets and the customers that could not
install a vent that ducted to the outside
were disappointed. This is sometimes
impossible but if there is attic access or the
ceiling joists are running toward an outside
wall, they said “ go for it ! “ . Most
new kitchens feature a tile back splash.
This ties the flooring, countertops and
other finishes together. We had a few
mention they would have liked to hide
their outlets under the wall cabinets by
using plug mold. This would prevent
their tile design being disrupted by
outlet covers and switch covers etc.
I must say that we were very pleased
with our feedback and hope this
information will be useful to others.

bath remodeling company. We
