Most bathrooms are short on cabinets and storage.  They are often areas that should, but don’t, provide adequate privacy.  The installation of custom cabinets and built-ins can provide you with far more storage space, privacy and neatness overall.

Although some people will walk through the big box home improvement store and choose their pieces from there, it’s not the best option.  There are affordable cabinets in Binghamton that will make your room into a masterpiece.  You just won’t find that in a huge, mass-produced box store.

Surely, you can get some ideas at the home store, but we have a valuable 3-D visualization tool that will show you exactly how your ideas will fit in the room or bathroom.  You can’t do that at your local home store.

Remodeling your bathroom or kitchen may seem like an extensive undertaking with a very high price tag.  This is where we want you to have an opportunity to see exactly how having custom woodworking and built-ins can be affordable and within your budget.

bathroom custom built insOne of the things you need to consider is the quality of the cabinets you are intending to purchase.  Mass produced cabinets are generally not made of solid hardwoods, but with veneers.  This is to keep the cost down for the general public.  These cabinets may not withstand heavy use nor keep their luster as time goes on.

Custom cabinets are made by master craftsmen who have extensive experience working with hardwoods and crafting the best end product possible.  You even have the opportunity with us here at Blackthorn Creative Woodwork to see each step of the process and are always kept apprised of the status of your cabinets.

Of all the interior renovations you could do, the kitchen area is the most sought after remodel by potential home buyers.  This is the room that people spend the most time in.  You cook here, entertain here, people naturally gather in your kitchen area, and you may even have a breakfast bar area to enjoy.

Kitchens are the hub of the home.  Home buyers know this and are looking for homes that provide an excellent experience and ambiance.  Blackthorn Creative Woodworking, a cabinet maker in Binghamton, would be pleased to take time with you to help design a stunning affordable upgrade to your current cabinets.

“If you have a dated kitchen … and a buyer walks into that kitchen, they’re going to think that in order to redo that kitchen, they’re going to have to spend $40,000 or $50,000,” Aaron says.  But the average cost of a minor kitchen remodel – new cabinet doors, appliances, countertops, sink, faucet, paint and hardware – was $18,856 nationwide, according to the Cost vs. Value report. Savvy shoppers can do it for less than the buyer assumes.

As a general rule, look to spend about 25 percent of the home’s value for a new kitchen and 12 percent to 15 percent for an updated bathroom, says David Pekel, president and CEO of Pekel Construction in Milwaukee and a master certified remodeler.
