1How much does a new kitchen cost?
The cost of remodeling a kitchen, like many things, can vary greatly. However, our experience leads us to use this rule of thumb: Calculate 15% of your home’s value when estimating the project. The materials chosen and the complexity of the job can increase or decrease costs. And, taking short cuts frequently brings regret not long after the project is completed. Additionally, we have found that better materials, such as cabinets or counter tops, will change the overall cost of the project only slightly, yet improve durability to last longer.

2How long does it take to remodel a kitchen?
You can plan your first dinner party about 4-6 weeks after the work begins. The process usually goes like this; we begin with demolition, plumbing and electric, followed by drywall repair, painting and flooring just to get ready for the cabinet installation. After the room is prepared, the installation of your new kitchen can begin.
Cabinets are carefully set, leveled and plumb to insure proper fit. The counter tops are templated and adjustments made to accommodate unusual job site conditions such as a wall out of square. Soon after, your countertops, sink, faucet and appliances are installed. Any tile backsplash is next. And finally, items like door and drawer adjustments, hardware and moldings are installed. To close out the installation, our owner will walk through the completed project with you to ensure that you are satisfied with the outcome. Russ recognizes that you’ll be sharing your new kitchen with friends and family and relies on his clients for design referrals.

3What do I need to do to prepare for my kitchen remodel?
First empty your cabinets. Consider disposing of things you haven’t used in a while. If you have a garage, we usually need a little space to stage things like cabinets and other materials that arrive in boxes. Take some time to set up a mini kitchen in another area of the home. Your old refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker can make a convenient snack bar while your kitchen is being remodeled. If you’re still researching your dream kitchen, call us today at 856-858-2100 to schedule an appointment at our expansive kitchen showroom located within IDEAL Tile at 1316 Route 73, Mt. Laurel, NJ 08054.
4Should I consider refacing my cabinets?
Unfortunately refacing is a costly endeavor. Our experience is that refacing costs about 70% of a new cabinet price. When you go with a complete remodel you have new products that are durable for years to come. Additionally, refacing prevents layout improvements such as better corner access and improved work flow. Over the years many customers have found refacing to be a poor investment resulting in the need to re-invest in the kitchen once again.

7Why Tuscan Sun Kitchens versus home centers or other larger companies?
First let's dispel one myth when it comes to kitchens: large home centers are NOT less expensive than a smaller company. And, let's face it, you have seen a line forming in the kitchen area of these Big Box stores as prospective or current customers wait for available staff whose #1 job is to sell cabinetry..not solve for multiple kitchen design challenges.
At Tuscan Sun Kitchens, we offer decades of design and construction experience in addition to local owner-involved service which IS NOT available at larger companies. Our goal is to add you to our growing list of delighted customers who will also refer us to family & friends. As you entertain, we want you to feel comfortable sharing that you "love your Tuscan Sun Kitchen" because word of mouth is our most successful referral method. We can be reached at 856-858-2100 to schedule an appointment in our expansive showroom...without waiting in line and with undivided attention!
8Can I use my own contractor?
While we would prefer that you use one of our experienced teams who are familiar with the intricate process of kitchen remodeling, you may use a contractor of your choice. We can provide you with a kitchen design plan and list of materials. Our owner, Russ Tuckerman, can be reached at 856-858-2100 to discuss your preferences, thoughts and consideration. However, remember that the elements of installing a kitchen are complicated as discussed above. Make sure your contractor fully understands the scope of work defined in the design plan and can translate it into a fully-completed kitchen on time and on budget. Additionally, other considerations include the time necessary for you to supervise the project, be familiar and in compliance with local renovation codes and the process while juggling your day-to-day duties. Many of our clients recognize their busy life demands this supervisory role be managed by Russ and Tuscan Sun Kitchens. Call today to discuss your unique situation and goals.
