“Astonishing Kitchen Remodel Secrets Remodeling Companies Fear You’ll Discover—Transform Your Space and Save a Fortune Fast!”

At EA Home Design, we believe in transparency and providing our clients with the best information.

Here are ten secrets that many remodeling companies don’t want you to know:

1. Lifetime Warranty on Cabinets

Ensure that your cabinets come with a lifetime warranty from the factory. This guarantees the quality and longevity of your investment, providing peace of mind.

2. KCMA Certification

Your cabinets should have KCMA (Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association) certification. This certification ensures they meet rigorous quality and health control standards, safeguarding your home environment.

3. Origin of Cabinet Materials

Many companies, even those claiming to be made in the USA, source their cabinet boxes from China and only assemble them locally. Be sure to verify the true origin of your cabinets to ensure you’re getting what you pay for.

4. Optimal Kitchen Layout

Some remodelers won’t advise you on the best possible layout for your kitchen because it’s challenging and not as profitable for them. At EA Home Design, we prioritize your needs and design a layout that works best for your space.

5. Cabinet Door Materials

Misinformation about cabinet doors is common. For example, some may tell you wooden doors are always better than MDF (Medium-Density Fiberboard). The truth is, each material has its pros and cons depending on your specific needs. We provide detailed information so you can make an informed decision.

6. Material Selection Before Contract Signing

Many companies push you to sign a contract before selecting materials, showing you cheaper options later to maximize their profits. Always choose your materials first to get an accurate quote and avoid inflated prices.

7. Payment Terms

Never pay in full upfront for any remodeling project. A reputable company should only require a 30% deposit by Virginia law. Paying in full can indicate cash flow problems and might lead to delays or quality issues since they already have your money.

8. Appliance Purchases

Avoid buying appliances directly from your remodeler. They often source from third parties and may push products with the highest profit margins, not the best fit for your project. It’s better to purchase from an appliance dealer who can provide expert advice.

9. 3D Renderings

Insist on receiving all plans with 3D renderings. This visual representation helps you understand the design and allows you to make informed decisions. Keep these plans for yourself in case of delays.

10. Authentic Reviews

Check for genuine reviews and speak with previous customers. Randomly selecting references provided by the company and watching video reviews taken on-site can give you a better sense of their work quality and customer satisfaction.
