QUICK KITCHEN UPGRADE
Transform the Heart of Your Home in Quick, Easy Upgrades
Kitchen Remodeling Contractors in Sacramento
Having the kitchen of your dreams does not necessarily require a full kitchen tear down and rebuild. Sometimes, you just want a few features upgraded. Or perhaps, a full kitchen remodel is in order, but the budget doesn’t allow for it. With smaller, quicker kitchen upgrades, you can have a renovated kitchen for a fraction of the cost of a traditional kitchen remodel.
Plan Ahead & Set a Realistic Budget
Before choosing which upgrades you want to implement, you need first to understand the layout of your kitchen. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll need to keep every new cabinet in the same place as where the old ones where. But to make for a quick and cost-friendly upgrade, you’ll want to leave all major systems like plumbing, gas, electric and heating intact. If your upgrade goals require rearranging the layout, you may want to consider a full kitchen remodel instead.
The next step is deciding what you really want. This helps you narrow down your options and create a budget. Budget is always top of mind for most homeowners looking to renovate and rightfully so. Jot down all the upgrades your mind can think of, but then filter out which ones are realistic in terms of budget and layout. Here are some questions you can ask yourself to whittle down the must-haves:
- What are the pain points of your current kitchen?
- What do you need to get rid of?
- What do you need more of?
- Do you need more storage?
- Do you need more open space?
- Do you need a different layout?
Narrowing down your list of needs also helps you set expectations straight. Sometimes, the kitchen of your dreams isn’t as easy to do with your current setup. When you have a list of your wants, a renovation specialist can help you determine the best plan to get there.
Hire an Expert
An expert who knows kitchen upgrades and renovations extremely well can save you a lot of time and frustration. Though you may think you have the capacity to take on upgrading by yourself, you’d be surprised how quickly a seemingly easy project can turn into an in-depth electrical and plumbing fiasco when done poorly. Make sure to leave room for the professionals in your budget.
You want to hire a licensed contractor who understands what you want and has a reputable track record of success in doing just that. An expert who can easily realize your vision, bring it to life and help you maximize the potential. We are licensed (#1035952), bonded and insured.

When you don’t need a full kitchen remodel or just want to start your bigger remodeling goals with smaller baby steps, quick kitchen upgrades are the way to go. Making even the most subtle changes can bring about a whole new feel to your entire home, not just a kitchen.
Cabinet refacing is the quickest and most affordable way to give your kitchen a new look and feel. Without gutting out your cabinetry in its entirety, we can reface your cabinets and install new doors and drawers to give you a new look and feel without disrupting your life. But we can also install custom created cabinets if your existing cabinets are broken, rotting or worn.
Add a Backsplash
This is one of the easiest areas to tackle that’s quick and very affordable. Adding a backsplash is a visually appealing and long-lasting design choice that lets you add your level of uniqueness to your kitchen. It’s important to understand that what you choose for a backsplash can define your style and add to it, or can ruin the feel and vibe of the kitchen entirely. That’s why it’s always a good idea to hire a remodeling company that understands what makes a good design that’s also highly functional.
Replace The Countertop
This might sound like a big undertaking, but it’s actually easier than you think. There are many countertops to choose from. From granite to laminate and even recycled glass, there is a countertop that’s right for your home and budget. Quartz, which is a growing trend, is made from natural ground stone bound with resin and fits a modern aesthetic kitchen. It comes in a variety of colors and is much more durable and maintenance-free than other surfaces.
Expand Your Space
If you need more counter space and storage, a kitchen island is a great addition to refresh your kitchen’s layout and functionality. When adding an island, you’ll want to make sure it’s a design that fits the current style of your kitchen as well as your overall lifestyle. We can custom make your ideal kitchen island to match your current counters and cabinets. That also includes adding more storage functionality and even comfy seating for entertaining purposes. Islands are much more than just preparing food, and we’ve got the perfect island waiting for you!
Open shelves and cabinetry can dramatically change the look and feel of your kitchen. Especially for smaller kitchens, an open-style cabinet set up can make your kitchen look and feel much more abundant.
Regardless of the design of your kitchen, you’ll want to have appliances that work well. Energy-efficient appliances such as microwaves, ENERGY STAR-certified refrigerators, and water-saving dishwashers are straightforward updates households consider.
Focus on Flooring
With so many things going on above the countertops, it’s easy to forget the things below! With as much foot traffic as a kitchen gets, the floor doesn’t get the credit as it deserves. Not to mention the high amount of spills, splashes, stains, and heat it endures. There are many types, styles, colors, textures, looks, layouts and patterns you can go with for flooring. Whatever it is, make sure it is durable, long-lasting and practical for your kitchen. And if you feel overwhelmed with your choices, don’t worry, we can help you make the right decision.
Don’t Forget the Little Things
There are plenty of creative and unique ways to add display items and functionality that reflect your personality. You can use an open shelf for showcasing decorative bottles or artwork, or you can use hooks to hang mugs and plants. If you feel your kitchen needs an upgrade, but you’re not entirely sure what it is, give us a call, and we’d be happy to help.
There could be a few different lighting upgrades to choose from that really adds a showstopper to your kitchen. Statement fixtures like bold pendant lighting or chandeliers are great if you want your kitchen to make a statement. Under cabinet lighting are other options that are gaining popularity due to its practicality and style.
