Remodel your kitchen, on time and on a budget

HOUR TAKING YOU INSIDE AND AROUND THE SHOW FLOOR FIRST, WE START WITH RACHEL

RACHAEL: OF ALL THE ROOMS IN YOUR HOUSE, YOU PROBABLY SPEND THE MOST TIME IN YOUR KITCHEN, WHICH MAKES IT AN IDEAL SPOT FOR UPDATING WE ARE HERE WITH KIM A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR THEIR PROJECT TO BE ON TIME, AND OF COURSE, SAVE MONEY DON'T WE ALL? RACHAEL: THAT IS ONE OF THE PLUSES OF REFACING WE ARE COMING IN AND WORKING WITH AN EXISTING STRUCTURE

WE WILL REPLACE ALL OF THE OLD AND MAKE IT LOOK BRAND-NEW COME IN MOST TIMES IN A WEEK RACHAEL: MOST OF OUR CABINETS ARE PRETTY GOOD YOU LOOK AT THEM AND SAY WE HAD A GOOD BASE IT WILL LOOK COMPLETELY DIFFERENT BUT WE ARE USING A BIT OF WHAT WAS THERE BEFORE EXACTLY

THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT WE CANNOT MAKE CHANGES THIS PARTICULAR KITCHEN, THAT WAS THE BASIC OLD CABINET THE LAYOUT IS DECENT, VERY DATED RACHAEL: LET'S LOOK AT SOME OF THE CHANGES THIS IS THE SAME ROOM? YES, IT IS AMAZING

WHAT WE CAN DO IN A FEW DAYS IS AMAZING COUNTER, BACKSPLASH RACHAEL: IT LOOKS SO DIFFERENT THE WHITE IS SO CLEAN AND RACHAEL: KITCHENS ARE A VERY IMPORTANT ROOM IN THE HOUSE PEOPLE WANT TO GET THEIR BEST BANG FOR THE BOOK

IN AVERAGE PERSON SPENDS THREE HOURS A DAY IN THEIR KITCHEN THAT IS ONE OF THE COMMON CHANGES, THESE BIG APPLIANCES THEY CANNOT GET THEM IN THERE, BUT WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN RACHAEL: IF SOMEBODY WANTS TO GO WHITE OR CONTINUE WITH THAT WOOD LOOK, YOU HAVE PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITIES ABSOLUTELY

I FIND A LOT OF MY CUSTOMERS WANT TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT THEY DON'T WANT WHEN THEY HAVE HAD RACHAEL: YOU GO IN AND TALK ABOUT THE POSSIBILITIES PEOPLE ARE NOT ON THEIR OWN YOU ARE AN EXPERIENCED DESIGNER, YOU MAKE SUGGESTIONS

A LOT OF TIMES, YOU ARE MAYBE ADDING THINGS TO UPDATE, THINGS YOU DON'T SEE INSIDE THESE CABINETS HERE BUT MAKE THE MOST OF THE SPACE, AND THEY ADD SOME MODERN TECHNOLOGY TO WHAT IS THERE WE DON'T JUST WANT TO PRETTY IT UP, WE ALSO WANT TO MAKE IT EFFICIENT WHETHER IT IS INSERTS OR CHARGING STATIONS, ADDITIONAL STORAGE, THERE ARE A MILLION THINGS WE CAN DO THAT ARE ALL PRETTY COST-EFFECTIVE RACHAEL: TO THE RIGHT WE HAVE A CABINET TOWER

TALK ABOUT THIS WE CAN DO ANYTHING THAT YOU WOULD FIND IN A NEW KITCHEN, CAN LIGHTEN THE KITCHEN, WE CAN DARKEN THE KITCHEN UP WE HAVE A COUPLE EXAMPLES BEHIND ME WE CAN DO GRAY, CHILIES, COCOA, ANYTHING IN BETWEEN RACHAEL: WE SAW IN THE PHOTOS, BACKSPLASH IS THAT WERE ADDED

THERE IS OFTEN A CHANGE IN COUNTERTOPS BECAUSE YOU MAKE THESE CHANGES TO YOUR CUPBOARD YOU WANT TO REFRESH THE ENTIRE ROOM I KNOW ONE THING, THIS IS LIMITED COUNTERTOPS YOU ARE DOING SOMETHING SPECIAL HERE COUNTERTOPS

I HAVE BEEN WITH THE COMPANY 18 YEARS AND WE HAVE NEVER DONE THIS WE ARE DOING 30 SQUARE FEET OF COUNTERTOPS WITH REFACING LAMINATE COUNTERTOPS HAVE STEPPED UP RACHAEL: THIS HAS A LOOK OF STONE, MARBLE, AT A FRACTION OF THE COST AND WE CAN DO THIS IN ONE DAY

RACHAEL: THIS IS REALLY DURABLE IT TALK ABOUT THAT MARBLE, WHICH IS RED HOT, BUT IT IS NOT ALWAYS PRACTICAL BECAUSE IT IS SO SOFT, AND STAINS SO EASILY THESE, 20, 30 YEARS, STILL OK THEY HAVE HELD UP IF THE COUNTER IS DONE, WE CAN DO THE VANITY IN THE HALF BATH TO MATCH

I'M EXCITED ABOUT THAT AS WELL RACHAEL: WE FOCUSED ON KITCHENS BUT YOU ALSO DO LAUNDRY ROOMS, MUD ROOMS YOU DO A LOT OF DIFFERENT AREAS IN THE HOUSE, EVEN BUILT IN, WHERE OUR LIVING SPACES ARE ENTERTAINMENT ROOMS ANYWHERE THERE ARE CABINETS ANYWHERE THERE ARE CABINETS, WE CAN WORK

RACHAEL: SOMEONE COMING THIS WEEKEND WHO IS SERIOUS ABOUT A PROJECT, OR MAYBE THEY ARE JUST ASKING QUESTIONS, IS THERE ANYTHING THEY CAN BRING INTO YOU OR HAVE INFORMATION THAT MIGHT BE USEFUL TO GET THE BALL ROLLING? GREAT QUESTION WHEN PEOPLE COME IN WITH PHOTOS, TO INTEREST PAGES, IDEA BOOKS, AND THEY SAY HERE IS WHAT I WANT , OR MAYBE THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING AT IT IS JUST JUMPSTARTING THE PROJECT RACHAEL: IT HAS BEEN ALSO TALKING WITH YOU WE WANT TO EMPHASIZE THESE TRANSFORMATIONS THAT ARE VERY DRAMATIC BUT TAKE PLACE IN LESS THAN A WEEK

NOT A LOT OF PLACES CAN SAY THAT, AND AT HALF THE COST WONDERFUL TO TALK TO YOU, THANK YOU A LOT MORE COMING UP DURING THIS HOUR OF "EIGHTWEST"
