A home’s kitchen plays a vital role in you and your family’s day-to-day life. Given the fact that you’re going to be in there multiple times a day, it’s important to make sure that the space is as functional as possible. Because of its constant use, many people remodel their kitchens to increase comfort, size, and aesthetics. However, not every kitchen remodel is a cheap endeavor. Depending on how much work you’re planning on doing it can take a great deal of time and money to get it up and running. Here’s a breakdown of the cost of kitchen remodeling to help get you started.

How Much Should You Budget for a Kitchen Remodel?

So, how much money should you plan on spending on a kitchen remodel? That answer varies depending on who you ask. Kitchen remodeling entails many different things and the amount of work required can drastically change the price. For example, some kitchen projects are as simple as replacing the cabinets and flooring. Other remodeling projects require tearing everything down to add additional square footage and enlarge the space.

On average, redoing a kitchen can cost anywhere from $50,000-$150,000. This may seem a little pricey at first but you often get what you pay for and quality is very important when remodeling a kitchen. Hiring a reputable contractor helps ensure that you don’t encounter any problems down the line.

How Long Does a Kitchen Remodel Take?

A kitchen remodeling project’s length can vary depending on the workload. A good rule of thumb is to plan for a fifteen-week experience when completely redoing a kitchen. This is because professionals need time to measure and build quality custom cabinets and appliances for your home. It’s going to take some time but it’s going to pay off once you have the luxury kitchen you always wanted.

Make sure you are available to supervise the remodel. If you are present during the process you’ll be able to review the work, answer questions, and make sure everything is how you want it to be.

Ensuring that You have a Smooth Remodeling Experience

Budget for your remodeling project accordingly and set aside time for the remodel. This eliminates surprises and delays and will lead to the best possible kitchen for your household. Gather your ideas and contact a kitchen remodeler today and get the kitchen of your dreams.

Caruso Family Charities to Become a Public Foundation

Posted by & filed under Caruso Family Charities.

Brandon RobinsonTravis, and his wife Kathy, lived in Widefield, CO with their four children, Brandon – 13, Alex – 10, Dakota (Kodi) – 4 and Callie – 2. Formerly an Army Medic, Travis was severely injured while serving in Afghanistan and is 100% disabled. His oldest son, Brandon, was first diagnosed with brain cancer in 2003. After receiving treatment in Boston, and 5 years of remission, doctors were optimistic that Brandon was cured. Unfortunately, in 2012, Brandon experienced severe headaches and was taken to a Colorado Springs emergency room. Doctors discovered 3 new brain tumors. The cancer had returned.

After consulting with a multitude of doctors, the consensus was that Brandon’s cancer was terminal and there was nothing more they could do. Travis had to deliver the heartbreaking news to his son. Brandon replied, “I fought cancer before and won. I want to try again.” A soldier himself, Travis agreed to take up his son’s fight. He took a leave of absence from work and brought Brandon to Children’s Hospital Colorado for a succession of chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Kathy stayed behind in Widefield with Brandon’s brothers and sister.

The family was apart for months. The doctors didn’t think Brandon would make it to Christmas. Against the odds, he surprised them all. An elated Travis said, “It was the best Christmas ever. All of us were together to celebrate.”

In January, Brandon underwent a high-dose chemotherapy treatment that causes severe side effects. Despite the side effects, Brandon made a guest appearance at the Caruso Family Charities Gala. He joined his dad, mom, brothers and sister at the Gala.

Travis shared his firsthand experience taking care of Brandon. In a deeply moving speech, Travis gave the audience an account of what life is like for his family. He stated, “Caruso Family Charities saved us from financial devastation. Because of the help I received from the charity, I was able to spend time with Brandon and ensure he got the loving care and treatment he deserved. Travis concluded, “I don’t know where I’d be without the help of Caruso Family Charities. It’s been a lifesaver for my family.”

How Supply Chain Problems Affect Cabinet Manufacturers, Contractors, and Homeowners

Posted by & filed under Blog.

During the past couple of years, many companies have suffered from major supply shortages due to one reason or another. For the most part, businesses have been able to move on from this and get things back on track. On the other hand, the building and construction industry still has a long way to go.

The sudden change in both the quality of wood being produced and the length that it takes to ship it out has greatly damaged the woodworking industry as a whole. Because supply chain problems affect cabinet manufacturers, contractors, and homeowners no one is spared from the problems that have appeared recently.

Wide-Ranging Effects

Here’s everything you need to know about the current state of woodworking.

Material Shortages

The overall material shortage present in the industry has led to a plethora of problems for those on all sides of the equation. When something becomes harder to obtain changes are going to have to be made to balance out the demand. These changes have caused many homeowners to be unhappy with the quality of their purchases. This in turn reflects poorly on the contractors and manufacturers who are constantly having to work around the supply chain problems.

Increased Prices

Because less quality wood is being produced it means that what exists is going to skyrocket in price to balance it out. This leads to cabinet manufacturers having to make a bigger investment in order to get the materials they need for the project at hand. This also means that the contractor is going to have to give a homeowner an estimate that may be higher than expected.

Delays

Most cabinet renovations are expected to take around 6-8 weeks to complete. Normally this would be an accurate estimate because the building process itself can actually go quite fast given the right situation. Unfortunately, delays have changed the length of projects greatly. Quality cabinet renovations tend to take 15-18 works in the current climate.

Workarounds

To address the issues, cabinet manufacturers have developed some workarounds.

New Suppliers

Many manufacturers are reaching out to new suppliers in order to make up for the lack of material currently available. Doing this will give them new options and opportunities to find something that works. Finding a supply chain that is devoid of problems will also lead to a reduction in price for the homeowner.

Extensive Planning

If you’re a homeowner looking to renovate your cabinets then make sure you plan accordingly for the delays that are present in the industry. If you were to start a project right now then there’s a good chance that it won’t be done for a few months. Make sure that your schedule is going to work with that before you get stuck halfway through the project.

Caruso Family Charities to Become a Public Foundation

Posted by & filed under Caruso Family Charities.

Caruso Family Charities is excited to announce that it is in the process of becoming a public foundation. When Caruso Family Charities originated, it was set up as a private foundation as Jerry, and Karen Caruso were unsure which direction Caruso Family Charities would go. Over the years, Caruso Family Charities has grown in ways we would never have imagined. Taking on this lengthy task of becoming a public foundation will allow us to have significantly more funding avenues such as donations from Donor Advised Funds, Colorado Gives Day, Giving Tuesday, Amazon Smile, and many more. Stay tuned for more information and ways to support us once our conversion process is complete!
