When your spring cleaning is
accomplished and the room sparkles,
do you still feel as if something is
missing? All the cleaning in the world
cant hide worn countertops, outdated
appliances or uninspired cabinetry. If
spring cleaning your kitchen is starting
to feel like youre simply putting polish
on a dirt oor, its time to plan a spring
redesign that youll love now, and for
years to come.
But where do you begin? Its essential
to incorporate the best in todays design
innovations with classic appeal that will
endure, advises interior decorator Nate
Berkus, and artistic advisor for LG
Studio appliances.
As a decorator and product designer,
I want people to love products not just
when they see them on the shelves
for a week after they purchase them,
Berkus says. I want them to love those
products ve or 10 years from now.
Your kitchen redesign should follow
that same rule of longevity, he says.
These are decisions that youre going
to live with every single day.
The key to a kitchen redesign that is
both livable and lovable long after the
paint dries is to choose quality, well-
designed foundational elements such
as premium and aesthetically-pleasing
kitchen appliances, countertops and
ooring, and build on them.
Pick what you love, Berkus says.
Pick things that really represent
who you are and what your design
personality is all about. Stick with them
and dont waiver.
First, look at your kitchen and
decide what elements would create the
most impact through replacement or
refurbishment. Maybe your kitchen
appliances are white enamel and a
decade old, when you prefer stainless
steel and models that integrate the
newest technology. Once youve
decided which elements are the most
important to you, its time to decide
your style.
First, look for inspiration. Pinterest
is a great way to start, Berkus advises.
Start a board of what you love and
what you want in your kitchen. Youll
see the trend of what matters most
to you oat to the surface. What you
gravitate toward the most is where you
begin.
For example, if your board is full of
new appliances, chances are your current
ones need updating. Fortunately, an
investment into premium appliances,
like those in the LG Studio collection
not only provides an aesthetic upgrade
to your kitchen but also helps to create
your own intensely personal signature
kitchen. The collection perfectly marries
design and function, with options like
built-in and counter depth refrigerators,
a slide-in range, and radiant, gas and
induction cooktops. The collection also
features single and double wall ovens
with built-in gourmet recipe banks
that provide inspiration for elegant
entertaining.
Berkus also recommends
homeowners do their homework
and spend some time living with their
options before committing to a design.
When youre buying appliances,
you need to select ones that are both
technologically advanced and well-
crafted, he says. Envision yourself
in the kitchen reaching in that fridge.
Make sure it has what you want, and
that it will help you live beautifully in a
space that matters. Look for appliances
that are current, yet timeless.
For design elements such as tile,
ooring or even paint, he advises placing
samples in your kitchen and living with
them for a while. Lay them out on the
oor or put the paint sample on the wall
and walk by them each day for a week
or month, he says.
Edit out what you grow tired of,
and lean toward the classic. You can use
plates and dishes and other elements to
build out your story and personality,
but let the permanent choices be your
most curated ones.

Expert advice for spring kitchen redesigns
that youll love forever from designer Nate Berkus
15 CADILLAC NEWS REAL ESTATE GUIDE JUNE 2014
Most of us spend our day multi-tasking.
At work or home, we want to maximize our
time and resources in order to accomplish the
most work while expending the minimum
required effort. Home improvement should
be no different. In order to make the most of
your home improvement resources, it makes
sense to undertake certain projects in tandem.
Roof replacement and skylight upgrades,
new countertops and new sinks - some
projects go together like peanut butter and
jelly. Doing these projects at the same time
can allow you to cut labor costs, save time
and achieve the best possible results. Here
are three sets of home improvements best
done together:
1. Roof and skylights
Replacing an old or damaged roof ensures
the rest of your home stays protected from
the elements. A roof replacement returns
nearly 68 percent of its cost when you
sell your home, according to Remodeling
Magazines Cost vs. Value Report. Replacing
the roof entails removing the old shingles,
tiles or other deck covering and the ashing
around any existing openings in the roof. Its
an ideal time to inspect all those openings
and upgrade any rooftop structures, such
as skylights. Its also the most convenient
and affordable time to replace or install new
skylights.
If your home has older skylights, the
ashing around them may have deteriorated
over time, making them susceptible to leaks
and less energy efcient. Modern Energy
Star-qualied fresh air skylights, like the No
Leak Skylight line from Velux America, can
improve indoor air quality through passive
ventilation, greatly reduce dependence on
expensive articial light sources, and save
on energy costs. Whats more, the skylights
specially engineered ashing and other
features virtually eliminate the risk of leaks
so theres a 10-year no-leak warranty with
the units. Youre getting a new roof with a
new warranty so its a plus to coordinate
your roof and skylight warranties.
Dont have skylights but thinking about
installing them to make your space more
functional and enhance the enjoyment of
your home? Again, roof replacement time is
also the best time for a new installation. Opt
for solar-powered fresh air skylights, with
stylish and energy efcient solar blinds, and
the improvements, including installation
costs, are eligible for a 30 percent federal tax
credit. To learn more about skylights or to

2. Garage door and
garage door opener
Replacing a garage door is a great
investment, even if your builder-installed
basic door is still functional and in good
shape. Installing an upscale garage door
costs an average of about $2,791, and
recoups nearly 89 percent of that cost at
resale, according to the Cost vs. Value
Report. A new garage door can have a major
impact on your homes curb appeal, and a
newer, sturdier door that is energy efcient
and air-tight can help improve your homes
overall energy efciency.
While youre investing in a new garage
door, its a great time to upgrade your garage
door opener as well. Homeowners often
dont think about the opener until it stops
working, but the device contributes to your
homes usability, convenience and security.
Installing one in tandem with a new garage
door can help to reduce labor costs and
allow you to upgrade from an older, louder
model - such as a chain-drive system - to a
quieter and stronger one, like a belt-drive
opener.
3. Countertops and sinks
Typically, kitchen remodeling projects
involve upgrading existing countertops.
Moving from laminate to an upscale
material such as granite improves not only
the appearance of a kitchen but also its resale
value. Remodeling Magazine says a minor
kitchen remodel retains nearly 83 percent of
its value.
While installing new countertops,
simultaneously replacing an older sink with
a newer model is a great way to continue an
upscale look and save on labor costs. Its far
easier to install a new sink at the same time
as the countertops than to do so later. While
youre upgrading the sink, consider a new
faucet as well to complete the updated look.
Undertaking complementary home
improvements together is a great way to
make the most of your investment - and
save time and money as well.
