Part Two

We are continuing our series on kitchen remodeling and refinishing cabinets.  Houston Remodeling is one of the area’s premier remodeling contractors.  We proudly represent some of the best brands in the business and partner with respected hardware suppliers including Hardware Resources and Top Knobs.  Let’s take a look at three more aspects to consider when planning your kitchen remodeling project.

Cabinet Drawer Fronts

No kitchen remodeling project is complete without new drawer fronts and drawer boxes.   Dovetail drawer boxes in clear coat hardwood maple or birch with 100 pound rated under-mount soft-close, full extension drawer slides are trending. And boy, what a difference this upgrade makes!

LED Cabinet Lighting

LED lighting is trending in home renovations.  Most kitchen remodeling projects we oversee incorporate LED over and undercabinet lighting, drawer and/or inside cabinet lighting, and well as toe-kick lighting.

Organization Hardware

One goal of a kitchen remodel is to better organize the space. We partner with Hardware Resources on many of our kitchen remodeling projects. They offer an extensive line of organization hardware that is ideal for any remodeling kitchen project including lazy Susan’s, blind corner swingouts and pullouts, sliding door corner organizers, pullouts and soft-close trashcan systems, tray dividers, base and wall pullouts, door mount spice racks, pantry pullouts, drawer inserts, pot and pan organizers, cutlery drawers, wire stemware racks, bottle racks, soft close appliance lifts and more.

Selecting a Contractor for Home Renovations

Selecting a contractor for home renovations can be stressful and tedious. Home contractors with large showrooms and flashy advertising are not always what they seem. It is important to dig deep and research anyone you are considering for your home renovations. If you are doing small changes you might not need a contractor as you could do it yourself, if that is the case then you may want to check out websites like to save on supplies when you go shopping. Anyway, here are some tips to help you get started:

Licenses and Insurance

You want to make sure all those working on your home renovations and/or kitchen remodeling project have proper licenses and insurance. There are numerous remodeling contractors that don’t even have a business license, let alone insurance. This can result in significant issues should someone get hurt on the job or perform substandard work. Houston Remodeling is owned and operated by Tim Lassiter, a second-generation Master Trim Carpenter. The business is properly licensed and insured.


How long have the remodeling contractors you are considering been in business? There are numerous fly-by-night home contractors who are here today and gone tomorrow. Whether you are doing a kitchen remodel or full home renovations, you want to deal with home contractors that have a proven track record and longevity in the area. Houston Remodeling has been providing home renovations for clients throughout Houston and surrounding areas for more than 20 years.

References/Better Business Bureau

Many remodeling contractors feature testimonials on their website. However, if you really want to know what their clients think of their work, you should ask for references and check with the Better Business Bureau to see if any complaints have been filed against them. You should also check online reviews for any home contractors you are considering.

Attention to Detail

This may seem obvious, but you would be surprised at how many remodeling contractors do not take the small details into consideration. For instance, when remodeling and designing a kitchen, there needs to be enough space for the cabinet doors to open without the handles hitting a wall or appliance. The tile backsplash starts at a certain end. Trim joints need to be out of regular view. You need to make sure any remodeling contractors you use to pay attention to even the smallest of details. Otherwise, you or your friends will see these minor mistakes, now or in the future and they pile up as well as regrets.

Don’t gamble with your home renovations. Be sure to do your homework and thoroughly investigate any remodeling contractors you are considering.
