Kitchen Remodeling Guelph
Kitchen renovation is a process that can take weeks or months, depending on the size and scope of your project. However, there are several simple things you can do to ready your kitchen for renovations that will save you time and money in the long run.
What not to do first before starting your kitchen renovation.
- Throw out all items in your cabinets and drawers – you’ll need to use them again one day!
- Paint the walls, floor, or ceiling.
- Take down cabinetry, appliances, wall decorations etc… unless specifically required for demo
- Move furniture (if you cannot move furniture out of the kitchen, see if you can place it in another room)
Kitchen appliances are no small investment. Because these are not things you would typically buy every day, saving money when purchasing them is important – especially in times where financing or buying high-cost items might be difficult.
Kitchen renovation costs can be substantial, and planning the kitchen remodeling can help to keep those costs down by knowing your options ahead of time.

Kitchen islands offer functionality and style. They can add storage or cooking space, and can increase the value of a home by taking a small space and expanding it to make a large, open room. General contractors can design kitchen islands with seating for eating or informal dining, as well as functional elements such as sink bowls.
A kitchen island that is built in place during construction requires additional time for installation. Many companies will sell prefabricated islands that attach to cabinets and countertops by using either screws or metal brackets. We must secure the island to cabinets on each side and require some time for installation. This depends on the type of cabinet system used in the rest of the kitchen remodel.
Guelph Contracting can make kitchen islands from a variety of materials, including natural stone, engineered stones, marble, granite or other solid surfaces. Wood countertops are maintenance-intensive; homeowners should purchase high-quality wood finishes to decrease burn marks and stains. For home renovations call today.
Marble is one of the most durable materials available for kitchen countertops.
Kitchen renovation companies must provide detailed measurements to fabricate marble countertops. This means that cabinets may need to be moved to accommodate the new countertop, which could increase installation time. A variety of methods can instal marble countertops, including natural or engineered stone, cement board or wood.
Marble countertops are available in a variety of colors, but the most common are white marble, gray marble and black marble. Marble comes in many finishes depending on the type of fabricating materials used. Polished is the most common finish for marble. Therefore, it may be necessary to purchase new appliances to coordinate with the countertop.
To increase marble durability and prevent staining, a protective sealer is strongly recommended. Marble’s high porosity makes it prone to absorbing liquids and requiring regular sealing. Kitchen remodeling contractors should apply a water-repelling treatment before installing any type of marble kitchen countertops.
Quartz is the most popular engineered stone used in kitchen countertops.
Engineered stones, including quartz, are solid surfaces made from crushed minerals. They are not porous and have a high resistance to heat, scratches and stains. Engineered stone countertops come with a variety of colors, which makes them easy to coordinate with cabinets. We can install these countertops by applying a thin stone veneer over the cabinets, or we may attach them to the surface of existing countertops.
An engineered stone countertop that is not sealed will etch. Home renovation companies should apply a clear sealant and water-repelling treatment before installing engineered stone kitchen counters to protect them from etching and staining. Guelph contractors may also add quartz counters to bathroom renovations for a new sink.
Natural Stone Counters
Granite is the most popular natural stone used in kitchen countertops.
Kitchen renovation companies must provide detailed measurements to fabricate granite countertops. This means that cabinets may need to be moved to accommodate the new countertop, which could increase installation time. Granite countertops are available in over 25 colours and patterns, including solid black and white. We must hone the granite to provide a smooth surface for food preparation.
Natural stone has the highest risk of staining compared with other countertop materials. Kitchen renovation companies should always recommend applying a protective sealant before installing any type of natural stone kitchen countertops to prevent staining and water damage.
