Custom design your own modern kitchen cabinets

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The kitchen is the one room in your house where all the magic happens. It is the place where you cook delicious meals, where the family gathers for a snack, and where you relax with a cup of java. So, it is only fitting that you design it to be cozy and welcoming.

With custom-designed cabinets, you can transform any plain cookery into the kitchen of your dreams. Read on to discover how to breathe new life into your kitchen with premium quality bespoke furniture.

How to Redesign Your Kitchen

Every homeowner out there dreams of having a kitchen tailor-cut to their preferences. Just imagine having a say on how every square centimeter in your kitchen gets to look like. You could choose the color, lines, and patterns that best suit your taste.

Most families in Canada would agree that many of the family activities take place in the kitchen. A well-designed kitchen area can make it even more attractive, and beautifying it is neither difficult nor expensive.

The good news is that you don’t necessarily have to change the color of the walls or the tiles on the floor to enhance the charm of your kitchen. All you need to do is change the cabinets. Out with the old, and in with the new!

What Are RTA Cabinets?

RTA stands for ready-to-assemble, and it is a top-quality standard for convenient, affordable and custom kitchen cabinets.

By adorning your kitchen with pre-made, ready-to-assemble cabinets, you get to save money on custom-made furniture and achieve the same effect. Whether you are looking for a large number of kitchen cabinets or just a long breakfast bar with a sturdy countertop, RTA cabinets should help you renovate your kitchen in style.

RTA cabinets provide a cost-effective, durable, and customizable solution for any homeowner who wants to design the modern kitchen of their dreams.

The Benefits of RTA Cabinets for Designing a Modern Kitchen

Buying contemporary RTA kitchen cabinets will save you more money and hassle than installing custom-made kitchen furniture. However, it is not the only reason why you should choose them. Here are four more:

  1. Flexibility

Cutting-edge design and finishes do not have to break the bank. Choose the designs you want, the colors you want at a reasonable price. Custom RTA cabinets are lower cost than pre-made cabinets. Use our kitchen design tool to customize the kitchen cabinets of your dreams.

  1. Fast Delivery

When you order custom-made cabinets, you have to prepare for a long wait. The overall turnaround time can vary widely between suppliers – as does final quality. With RTA cabinets, you benefit from faster delivery and turnaround time. As a full-service RTA cabinet supplier we maintain a comprehensive stock. When you order cabinets, they are shipped to you without delay.

  1. Easy to Assemble

Modern kitchens are desirable up until the point they have to be installed. Assembling contemporary RTA cabinets is an easy DIY project that most homeowners can easily complete because cabinets are designed for easy installation.  Don’t waste your time and money on custom-made kitchen cabinets that will sour your kitchen redesigning experience. Customize your own high-quality RTA cabinets to upgrade your kitchen to modern standards at an affordable price!

Getting RTA bathroom vanities: Design, planning, installation

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

One of the biggest reasons why homeowners buy ready-to-assemble bathroom vanities is because they are easy to order, easy to procure and easy to install. RTAs take the hassle and budget overruns out of bathroom remodelling and make renovations all that much more accessible for everyone.

With millions of Canadians spending a lot more time cooped up at home we have seen a big increase in demand for our RTA bathroom vanities. Their ease of DIY (or professional installation) makes RTA vanities and RTA bathroom cabinets an affordable, enjoyable project.

If you are new to the world of RTA – welcome! In this article we will explain the process behind getting personalized vanities and cabinets for your bathroom.

Step 1: Design

At CozyHome we have a large selection of bathroom vanity designs and cabinets to choose from. Find the right classic or modern vanity in a variety of finishes and colors for your bathroom. Once you know what design you want, bring a rough measurement of your bathroom to us. Make sure you include dimensions of the window, the height of the ceiling and wall-to-wall measurements.

Our team will prepare a 3D model of the bathroom based on your layout. Tweak your design as required. Once that’s done we will provide a quote for your RTA bathroom vanity and RTA bathroom cabinets.

Step 2: Planning

Once your design is finalized a technician will make a house call to take accurate measurements. Don’t worry we take an appointment with you before making a visit. The technician will comprehensively assess the space and make recommendations in case of any space conflicts. If a redesign is required we will make recommendations for the same.

Step 3: Installation

Our team of installers will deliver the RTA bathroom vanity and RTA bathroom cabinets on the day of installation. Vanities can be completed within a day or two, usually, depending on the size and complexity of the bathroom vanity design. Alternatively, you can DIY bathroom vanity and cabinet installation.

Tips and tricks for choosing the right bathroom vanity design

RTA makes remodels easy – if the design is right from the start. Here are a few things you should think about before placing your order.

  1. Material choice – Choose between solid wood doors or HDF doors, depending on the realistic moisture level maintainable in your bathroom.
  2. Maximize space – Don’t overfill the bathroom with a vanity or overlarge cabinets.
  3. Plumbing – Rerouting plumbing adds complexity to the build and can increase the chance of leaks.
  4. Choice of sink – Make sure the sink has enough clearance. Multiple sinks can look luxurious but will they fit comfortably?
  5. Type of vanity – Floating, free-standing or corner vanity? Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Speak to a CozyHome representative today about the best options for you.

How to plan a kitchen renovation

By | Uncategorized

The kitchen is the heart of the house. It is often the place where the family spends most of its time, whether it is eating together on a dining table or using the island for doing homework. If you are unhappy with your kitchen design or functionality and thinking of remodelling it, you need to devise a well-planned layout that will improves its functionality but will add an element of beauty and design to it as well. Here are a few tips that will help you to plan your kitchen renovation smoothly.

1. Get inspiration

Once you have decided to remodel your kitchen, the next thing is to inspire yourself with a few nice ideas according to your space. You can browse online to check out recent design trends as an example. It will broaden your vision and help you to bring modernity and practicality into your design.

2. Plan your budget

Before taking any steps further, estimate what you are willing to spend on your kitchen remodelling. Planning a budget is very important, because at the end of the day you don’t want the kitchen renovation to get over the budget. Make sure you allocate a contingency amount – too many homeowners don’t plan for last-minute changes.

3. Seek help from a professional

Find a professional kitchen designer. Discuss all the remodelling ideas you have, such as changing the flooring, countertops, backsplash, sink, cabinets and drawers. A consultation will make the task of remodelling easier and less tedious. It will also bring out all the pros and cons of your ideas, comparing it with the experience a professional. Sometimes color schemes that look great on paper may not look so good in real life – something an experienced designer can warn you about.

4. Selecting materials

The next step requires action. Go through the different materials you want to incorporate into your kitchen. Do you want your countertops to be of granite or quartz? What color theme do you have in your mind? What material should be the cabinets made of and what color should they be? What is an appropriate size of the sink? How can you incorporate clever storage spaces?

5. Measurement

Once all the materials have been selected, the next step is to call an expert kitchen renovation company that will take measurements for the kitchen, backsplash, countertops and sink. DIY this at your own peril! One mistake can mean thousands of dollars worth of lost materials.

 

After you have carefully gone through all of these steps, the next thing is to sit back, wait patiently and let the professionals take over and do the work. Call CozyHome and schedule a free at-home consultation.

Raise your kitchen’s Storage Quotient

Slide out prep station

A drawer that hides an easy to clean chopping board and a slot to drop organic waste from – we love it! It’s such a neat way to save counter space and mess. The unit is the size of a standard drawer, which makes it easy to incorporate too.

Pan and tray drawer

A deep drawer that organizes all the baking trays, skillets and cooking pans vertically and has their handles pointing out is incredibly handy. Custom wooden dividers keep pans from banging into each other. Best to use the bottom most drawer for this one, given it’ll need to be a little taller.

Knife organizer

Knife organizers are great if you are short on counter space or want to keep sharp objects out of sight of children. The organizer can fit all types of knives, including bread and meat knives, and keeps them from bumping into each other. Properly aligned knives last longer too.

Cup pod organizer

Coffee pods have a bad habit of disappearing when you want them most, especially the good ones you were saving for an indulgent day. With a pod drawer or a “K-drawer”, keep all your pods neatly organized. It’s basically a slide-out on top of an existing drawer and doesn’t take up any extra room.

Produce bin

Unrefrigerated produce like potatoes and onions have a way of winding up in an incredible mess no matter how hard you try. A segmented produce bin makes life so much easier, with produce sorting itself into perfectly sized cubby spaces. A mesh bottom makes it easy to clean peels too.

5 must-have kitchen cabinet features

By | Uncategorized

There’s something very satisfying about getting new kitchen cabinets with handy storage spaces. Great kitchen cabinet storage ideas do more than just hide away the clutter – they make your kitchen smarter.

In this article we are looking at 5 special kitchen cabinet features that you need to have in your dream kitchen in 2020.

Pull-out convenience

Custom pull-outs are basically drawers with a purpose. There are options for spice pull-outs, garbage bin pull-outs and even appliance pull-outs. Pull-outs incorporate special storage that makes access and cleaning easier. For instance, a spice pull-out has extra height between the selves which makes it easier to take out taller bottles of spices and see what’s in the lower shelves. A recycling unit pull-out is neatly hidden away and can even be used to segregate aluminum, glass and cardboard.

cozyhome cool kitchen cabinet ideasCorner storage

Simply filling corners with shelves makes for an awkward experience. Sure, split-hinged doors offer sufficient access, but the space can be utilized so much better with a dedicated solution. The ‘lazy susan’ style of cabinets improves the layout while making access that much easier. The same goes for ‘blind corner cabinets’, which are used as an alternative to lazy susan cabinets. What’s better, they can even be equipped with pull-out shelves. Finally, corner drawers are another option for making corners that much more usable.

How to go about getting new cabinets

 

Coffee station

If someone doesn’t like a hot cup of joe we don’t know them. And the coffee machine is an unsightly but necessary appliance in most Canadian homes. Dedicate space for the coffee setup with new kitchen cabinets. Shelves can have indentations to store mugs and jars; a spill-resistant floor; and even a custom cabinet door, such as a chalkboard finish. In fact, the ‘coffee station’ concept can be adapted for any beverage.

Warming drawer

Warming drawers do what the name says – they keep food warm, like a professional kitchen! Warming drawers are a simple answer to a common household problem…how do you keep food warm? The appliance is compact and requires no more space than a typical drawer.

Cabinets for the smart home

Getting new cabinets in 2020 means making sure they are ready for your smart home devices. There is really no need to splatter gravy on your new smart assistant display! Cabinets can incorporate cut-outs and mounting surfaces for Amazon Alexa, Google Home and Apple Siri speakers and displays (with hidden electrical ports. They can even be equipped with integrated wireless charging pads to charge devices while you cook.

Maintaining your kitchen cabinets

Smart lighting

Kitchen cabinets also come with recesses and fittings for hidden lighting fixtures. Under-cabinet lighting is a cool kitchen idea that homeowners love. Some even opt for smart lighting, such as the kind that is controlled by motion sensors or is hooked up to ‘smart home’ assistants to control by voice.
