Low Cost Luxury Upgrade

Glass cabinet doors can be an impression added to any kitchen but the addition especially when it’s new is very costly too. Well if you want to avoid too costly reconstruction, then skip the pricey new models. However even if it’s not too pricey  since you will just retrofit recessed panel doors of some few glasses, it would still result a stunning addition in your kitchen.  Use colored glass to conceal what’s inside.

How to do it? This one excerpt from Upgrade your House Magazine:

Use a router when you cut a recess for a glass panel in the frame and it should be straight bit to cut away the lip on the rails and stiles of the door that holds the panel in place. Set the router to the depth of the lip. Clamp the door to the work surface. Clamp guides to the work surface.

Rout out the lip. Remove the panel. Square the corners of the cutout with a chisel.

Install the glass. Measure the cutout and order a piece of tempered glass to fit. Consider the many types of glass. Use glass to install the panel. Reattach the hardware and rehang the door.

The Neat Style For Tiles

The moment that the carpenter went to our house for renovating the sink, I went to Floor Tiles to check some tiles for the kitchen sink. I was thinking to buy a slab but when I checked the price, it was way too high. I opted to look at the tiles/granite on the display. These were the granite I was checking.

I was looking at this at first. It’s black which I really like but I don’t like the messy grand. I don’t know, it is just not neat for me. So I looked around and found this.

It still has some little grand but this is more neat than the other. Thus, I choose this. Now look!

I was looking for border too but the sales force said that it looks better without the border. Oh well, I was checking for this border.

I was about to pay for the border, good thing one of the sales force suggested that I don’t have to put borders since the tiles alone can already make an impression.

Finally!

I really thought that I won’t be able to realized of repairing the kitchen but thank GOD I am finally doing it. Last Friday I thought twice of repairing because I was thinking of the car too. But we always prioritize the car ever since. I always left the house behind when it comes to maintenance because the car is broke again. This time I guess it’s the house turn. I called the carpenter and told him to push through the repair this Saturday. So last Friday I bought some hinges for the cabinets both kitchen and in the bedroom, I am also asking them to put a stand for the two speakers.

Yesterday I bought a 60 x 60 granite/ceramics tiles. We choose the color black, my niece said it would match perfectly to the color of the house which is white. I also bought a stainless sink with anti most at the bottom part. I was so happy because I was able to pick the affordable one compared if I bought the same sink in the mall. I bought a new faucet, this time its not wall mounted, it is a single hand goose type faucet. I can’t wait to see the final revision of our kitchen sink especially when the kids said that they like the color of the tiles I picked.

Will Be Having A Kitchen Renovation Very Soon!

It has been months that I am planning to at least have a renovation in our house. At first I was thinking in adding one bedroom so it could mean extension but I realized I would need a huge amount of money for that. My niece suggested modifying the kitchen and since one of my goal this year is to make some repair or renovation to any part of the house, I agree with the suggestion. I was looking for a carpenter for how many months already, good thing my sister knows someone who could do it and finally we were able to see each other this morning.

We agreed to retain the cabinet door; we will just replace the hinges since most of it is busted already. I also told her to install a cabinet door since the cabinet just above the sink doesn’t have any. Of course we will be replacing the tiles, I am still thinking what color and what kind of tiles we will be buying hope to find the most affordable ones but look very classy. I was also asking if he could put a stand of our 2 speakers and another cabinet door in our bedroom.

I am so excited and can’t wait to see the finish work, the carpenter said that he can finish it in 3 days and since he will start on Saturday, I am expecting him to finish it on Monday.
