12×12 Kitchen Remodel in San Diego

Hey, if you’re a San Diego homeowner about a few changes to your kitchen, this article will share four of the most common questions that home owners ask our design team.

  • Can I convert the peninsula to an island?
  • Can I move my appliances in my medium sized kitchen?
  • I love my cabinets, can I just reface them?
  • How much do San Diego kitchens cost to remodel?

There are so many questions but here are the top four questions for this week!

You’re in the right place to get started! One question at a time. 

Read on!

Teknik Testimonial

1. Can I Convert The Peninsula To An Island?

You sure can! The top benefits you might take into consideration when looking into your peninsula-to-island conversion are:

  1. Improved flow in and out of the kitchen into surrounding rooms
  2. Improved workspace flow for food preparation
  3. Your kitchen will feel larger
  4. A new island will have new cabinets which means the cabinet options will be custom selected by you to fit exactly what you would like to be stored in them, i.e. large bowls, food storage containers, cookie sheets. 

Here are some of the options that will come with your decision to build an island:

  1. How much counter top space would you like? What are the dimensions you could see in that space?
  2. Do you want drawers or cabinet doors?
  3. If you'd like drawers, do you want deep drawers or shallow ones?
  4. Could you use inserts and dividers for each cabinet box to help you stay organized?
  5. Do you want a sink in the island or perhaps your cook top?

These options and many more are available for this one item in your kitchen!

2. Can I Move My Appliances in my Medium Sized Kitchen?

Don't you love to hear "Yes!"? 

It is possible, but the plumbing determines the feasibility of this option so make sure that you check with your contractor first!

3. I LOVE My Cabinets - Can I Just Reface Them?

It's possible to reface your cabinets by:

  1. Repainting them
  2. Sanding and refinishing them
  3. Replacing the doors, hinges, and pulls but keeping the cabinet boxes.

However, most estimates we provide for refacing cabinets get shredded and the home owner chooses to replace them with new cabinets.

The cost savings exist, but the margin is not that significant, when you consider all the organization options and other options that you forfeit by refacing instead of replacing.
