Remodeling vs. New Construction

You like your home. The neighborhood is nice, it suits your needs, and you're comfortable there. But that doesn't mean you can't make a good thing better! A well-planned kitchen remodel will make your home more comfortable, efficient, and attractive—and probably worth more at resale time. 

You're in the right place—right now—to get started. Browse through Showplace's concise, smart overview of remodeling for the kitchen, bath, or any room where cabinetry plays a role. 

If you're remodeling a kitchen or bath, it is a big, complex job. Not only do you need a source for cabinetry (like us, for instance), but lots of other work has to get done too, including plumbing, electrical, counter tops, and perhaps tile, flooring and more, depending upon the scope of the project. And of course, you'll need someone to design it all for you, and manage the project. Now here's where it gets less complicated: Rely on a Showplace cabinetry dealer. They can help you make good choices, create a design, and oversee the process from beginning to completion. It's still going to be a really big job, but with Showplace, you'll have a real pro on your side.

About new construction: If you are building a new home, the process can be very different. Your contractor may have an allowance built into the home's cost for cabinetry, but outsource the actual work to a cabinetry dealer (which you can influence). Other contractors will want to do the work themselves, and have preexisting sources for cabinetry. These factors set the boundaries of your new project, so talk to your contractor before you spend a lot of time shopping.
