Designing and Building Beautiful Kitchens for LA Homeowners

Eli-and-Donna-720w.jpg
Your kitchen is the heart and soul of your home, it is also usually the busiest room in your home. Apart from being a room where all the food is prepared, it’s also a place where a lot of us spend time with our family and friends. It’s kind of a sanctuary where you can chat with your friends and family over a cup of tea or coffee. We all have childhood memories of spending time in the kitchen with our families that will stay with us forever.

That’s why it’s crucial that your kitchen is both beautiful but also really functional. It needs to be open and inviting for anybody that enters your home. Whether you just want to update your current kitchen or build a new kitchen from scratch, Quality First Builders is here to help!

The Most Valuable
Room in the House

The kitchen is notably the most valuable room in the house. When someone comes to view your home for the first time they always gravitate towards the kitchen. If the kitchen wows them, they are usually sold on the house before they step foot in any other room. It’s commonly known in the real estate industry that a kitchen remodel is one of the few projects that can actually add a profit margin to a home sale.

Kitchen Design Layouts

These days, large, open kitchens are in. Big islands with breakfast bars that face the living room provide ample space for family gatherings and the day-to-day life that happens in the kitchen. Donna, our in-house designer, will help you find the optimal layout for your home and your priorities. We can move walls, remove walls, add them, or anything in between. We’ll help you find the optimal spacing and locations of your appliances that will fit your needs and follow standard building practices.

Working Surfaces for Cooking and Life

The go-to countertop material in the modern-day and age is definitely granite. It’s hard to beat that totally unique and interesting look that rock from deep in the earth can provide. That said, granite is not the only option. There are many options for countertops these days from butcher block to manufactured stone, and even concrete if you’re going for that industrial look. The combination of your countertop and your backsplash will make every second spent cooking in your new kitchen an absolute delight. We know the countertop suppliers in Los Angeles well and will help you find the perfect kitchen counter surface for your cooking experience as well as the visual appeal.

Storage and Utility

Cabinets are the centerpiece of a kitchen remodel. The design features and color of the cabinets will determine how the rest of the room goes together. Our designs blend the functionality that high-end cabinets provide to the users of a kitchen as well as that look that makes people go “Wow!” when they enter the room.

Flooring That is Beautiful and Durable

Options for flooring materials are pretty much endless. For the kitchen, especially, durability and water resistance are just as important as the visual appeal. Our designer, Donna, will work closely with you to figure out the look and feel you are going for and then select options for flooring that will achieve those goals. Some of the most common materials we like to use for floors are:

  • Marble tiles
  • Porcelain tiles
  • Hardwood flooring
  • Vinyl plank

Appliances to Fit Your Style

Appliances can make or break the functionality of your kitchen and determine how enjoyable it is to use your kitchen. Farm sinks provide a large area for washing dishes or rinsing off vegetables. Large refrigerators provide plenty of space to keep your cold food well organized and accessible. And, of course, your range is where the magic happens so it has to be top-of-the-line.

We know all of the major brands and will help you find the right appliances to match the quality of your kitchen. Our relationships with local distributors make sure we get exactly what we’re looking for every time.

Shining Light On It All

Lighting is an afterthought for some, but to us, it’s one of the most important aspects of your kitchen design. Pendant lights accent your island and make the most beautiful features of your kitchen stand out to the eye. Recessed ceiling lights provide the working light needed without getting in the way or drawing attention away from the finer parts of the room.

Donna’s eye for design is second to none and the lights she chooses for your new kitchen will bring the whole thing together in a way you never thought possible.

Let's Talk About Your Vision

Reach out to us, describe what you are trying to create and we will provide a detailed explanation of how we can make your dream come true!

Kitchen Remodeling Process From Start to Finish

Design, Blueprints, Engineering, and Permits

Every kitchen remodeling project starts with a dream. You close your eyes and see yourself cooking in a kitchen that only exists in your mind. Everything is perfect, just the way you want it. It’s not a clear vision, but the feeling is there. You know exactly what you want and you’re trying to figure out what it looks like. It’s the job of Donna, our all-star designer, to help you visualize the possibilities.

With Donna’s working design, Eli, our general contractor, will work with architects and engineers to get the plans approved by the city in order to acquire the necessary permits and get the green light to complete the project. Once we have the green light, we put you on the schedule to begin construction.

Layouts and Moving Walls

Oftentimes we will completely change the look and feel of a kitchen by moving or removing walls. The age of open concepts is upon us and a lot of us like the feeling we get when we have room to breathe while we’re cooking and conducting the business of our household.

Electrical & Plumbing

Almost always, we need to move electrical and plumbing fixtures to accommodate the new design layout. Our master plumbing subcontractors are ready to go when it comes time to move the technical parts of the project.

Applying the Color to Walls and Ceilings

The colors of materials that go into your new kitchen will make or break the design. That’s why we rely on the keen design-eyes of Donna to make sure everything flows and provides the desired effect and feel we’re going for. The walls will often be painted early in the process before the cabinets go up. Touch-ups will be done later as necessary.

Installing the Cabinets

The cabinets will be delivered in carefully packaged boxes. Our carpenters will take the checklist and check through each box to make sure the cabinets are the correct shapes and sizes and also make sure they’re not damaged. When it’s time to install them, you’ll be amazed at how fast it goes. One minute your walls are bare. A few hours later, your kitchen has been transformed.

Countertops and Backsplashes

Once the cabinets are installed, the countertop company will send a technician to take a careful laser-guided measurement. He’ll take that measurement back to the factory to cut the stone in the exact shapes and sizes that will fit your home. Once they come back and secure the countertops in place, the tile installer will install your backsplash. This is where things really start to come together.

Installing the Floor

Flooring doesn’t only need to look great, but it needs to hold up to the abuse it’s surely going to receive from your day-to-day life. Dropping things, dogs running around, and spilling liquids are only a few of the challenges your floor must be facing so we’ll take special care when choosing the materials and construction methods for this part of your kitchen. The flooring may go in earlier in the process and be covered to protect it from dropped tools and paint.

Trimming out Windows, Doors, Ceilings, and More

The trim is what frames your floors, ceilings, windows, and doors. It’s what adds a depth of field to your walls and makes you take notice when you walk into a different room. The type of trim that goes into your kitchen will depend on the other major design features of the project.

Lighting and Punch Lists

Finally, lighting is what makes the magic happen. A proper lighting installation accents the amazing features of your new kitchen while shining light, literally, on your day-to-day activities. Again, Donna’s eye for design when it comes to lighting puts the finishing touches on every kitchen remodel project we complete. When we can see what we’re working on, we’ll complete the punch list of small details that seal the deal.
