What kind of remodeling services do you offer?
Amish Cabinets of Texas provides custom-built hardwood cabinets for any place in your home. Our experienced carpenters create gorgeous, space-saving designs for your office, bathroom, kitchen, garage, and beyond.
Two of the most common projects our carpenters perform are bathroom and kitchen remodeling. Since homeowners constantly use these rooms, it’s no surprise our families want to upgrade.
Technically, your bathroom cabinets are called bathroom vanities. While kitchen cabinets include a countertop, vanities need to house a sink and provide room for your plumbing.
Keeping space for plumbing may sound like a simple task. Unfortunately, many homeowners attempt to self-install a vanity only to find out the job is much more complex. When you choose and install a vanity, you have to consider multiple factors.
Selecting the appropriate size is critical. In addition, you’ll need to consider more than just how long you want your vanity to be. Homeowners have to consider how high the vanity sits off the floor, toilet clearance, and more.
By far, the most challenging part for homeowners is finding a vanity that accommodates their plumbing fixtures. Unfortunately, home builders do not have to position plumbing fixtures a set distance from the wall or floor; it’s based on the home’s structural needs.
As a result, there are many vanity cabinetry designs out there that will not work with your plumbing. Too often, homeowners install a vanity only to find out that the drawers won’t close because the drainpipe is in the way.
Another factor is the flooring underneath the vanity. Unfortunately, some homeowners pull out their vanity only to find that there is no flooring under it or the floor height differs from the rest of the bathroom. If the floor height is different, you’ll have to make sure the vanity still accommodates the plumbing height.
If everything goes smoothly, your water lines will be long enough to reach the faucet. However, it’s not unusual for water lines to be too short to reach the faucet. If this happens, you’ll need to extend the lines.
Not all vanities come with a sink. If your vanity doesn’t include a sink, you’ll need to make sure the sink you choose fits in the bathroom vanity. Further, the sink must be able to hook up to your current pipe structure. If it doesn’t, you’ll have to make adjustments to the pipes.
Remodeling your kitchen modernizes homes in a flash. There’s something about a new kitchen that brings out the pizazz of your house. However, there are more reasons to update your cabinets.
- Storage: If your pots and pans are trying to escape from your cabinet, you’re probably dying for more storage. Adding an island or choosing larger cabinet sizes can dramatically improve your storage capabilities.
- Broken parts: Kitchen cabinets get used multiple times every day. All the opening and closing, loading and unloading slowly wears away your cabinets. If the bottoms are bowing or doors are falling off, it’s time to consider replacing your cabinets.
- Appliance room: One of the more unique modern problems is not having enough space to place a new appliance where the old appliance was. Our fridges, ovens, etc., have gotten bigger over the years, and a dated kitchen may no longer accommodate a modern appliance. Changing your design can include removing a cabinet’s space to allow room for your new appliance.
How long does it take to install Katy TX custom bathroom cabinets?
Unfortunately, installation length can vary dramatically. Installing a vanity almost always takes less time than redoing your kitchen cabinets, mainly because the bathroom is a much smaller area.
However, if you’re installing more than just vanity, your job will take longer. Your general contractor will have to locate the piping and electrical wiring before installing new cabinets along the wall. Here are some basic steps carpenters perform to install a vanity.
- Design: First, one of our carpenters will meet with you and discuss what you’d like for your new vanity. Then, our carpenter will measure your current vanity for dimensions, as well as the distance your pipes and waterlines are from the floor and the length of your water lines. That way, our carpenter can be sure to install the proper vanity height.
- Build: After we’ve created your Katy TX custom bathroom cabinets, we’ll begin building your bathroom cabinets. You have many choices for hardwood, including hickory, maple, cherry walnut, and mahogany.
- Confirm measurements: Once we’ve finished your unique cabinets, our carpenters will perform one last measurement check to ensure your vanity will fit perfectly.
- Install: Finally, our carpenter will bring your gorgeous new vanity to your home and install it. We’ll answer any questions you have and address any concerns. In addition, if you need any adjustments, we’re always available.
As our cabinets are custom-built and our designs are unique, it can take several weeks to complete your vanity project. First, we want to make sure we create the perfect design for you. Then, we’ll give you an initial design within 24 hours. However, if you choose to move forward with your project, we’ll create an advanced 3-D model.
