I also shopped to make sure I was getting the quality they promised even though the price was low. Stephanie has been with Imperial Kitchens and Baths for over ten years. I apologize up front for those that are sick and tired of seeing this kitchen but i’ve been getting lots of emails asking for details so i kinda need to do this.
It looks so much more than what they spent- even a light freshing up would cost twice as much here in NY suburbs by the kitchen designers/contractors. So we looked into using reclaimed wood on the counters. I knew we had to replace the drywall along the outside wall.
Floors are done, appliances are in. I have a working kitchen. They also offer iPhone functionality in order to come up with an easy use of parking enforcement along with security guards as well as authorized personnel. I never thought I would say this, but in some ways, life without a fully functioning kitchen is easier.
Hopefully we’ll learn some lessons that will stay with us even when we reclaim our remodeled kitchen. In t his post I shared where I had purchased my faucet and pendant lights. Not to mention working in a high rise is more expensive than working in a home. These two items (electrical and dry walling) accounted for over half of our general contractor’s charges!
And the guy even told us that unless one of us was a stay-at-home parent, we would be crazy to try to do the whole project without a general contractor. Oh one more thing, do you have a list of your favorite cleaning and food products you shop for at Trador Joes anywhere on one of your posts?.. I’m searching and only find them randomly- which I a writing down.
