Making Your Kitchen Safer Through Remodeling

Making Your Kitchen Safer Through Remodeling

Homeowners often think their kitchen is outdated from the appearance of their cabinets, ugly old appliances and cracked counters.  What you may not realize is that there are other reasons why a kitchen needs to be remodeled.

Here are some tips to help you evaluate the condition of your kitchen and decide if the time is right for a remodel!

Do you find yourself satisfied with the amount of space that is available on counters, in cabinets and on floors?

The position of appliances or the shape of counters may be eating-up useful work station space.  If you decide it is time to remodel, you want to keep nearly 160” of countertop frontage, 24” deep and 15” of clearance from above.  This will accommodate all uses, including preparation and storage.

Do you have children?  How old are your children?  Do you plan on adding more children to your family?

Depending on whether you are raising children, and the ages of your kids, it may be time to remodel your kitchen.  Older appliances and the design of your kitchen may prove to be hazardous to youngsters.  If you are building the family, it may make sense to have a kitchen geared toward cooking larger meals and lower cabinets that are safe for the kids to access on their own.  A great example is installing the microwave 3” below the shoulder of the main user.  It is also a good idea to skip the sharp corners on countertops when there are kids in the household.

Is your kitchen easily accessible to someone with disabilities?  Will the kitchen work for you as you get older?

Considering both of these issues is vital to any Tampa kitchen remodeling project.  Universal Design techniques in the kitchen remodeling project will assure that the space is useable by everyone, regardless of physical ability or age.  There will be no need for adaptation later.

Before you remodel the kitchen, make a checklist of any problems and keep notes of the features which you find distasteful.  A list will make things easy when it comes time to sit down with a qualified representative from Rossi Construction, Inc.  We will know how best to satisfy your needs, taste and style.  For additional information about remodeling and safety, be sure to visit our blog frequently.

They were very professional. Quoted us a time frame and they were exact on the time frame. The were very clean as they cleaned up every night. Any questions I had they were very helpful. Overall a great experience. We plan on using them again if we decide to redo our bathrooms. The kitchen came out very nice and we are very happy with it.

This company is great. They did an awesome job on our remodel. The quality of work surpasses everything. All project hiccups were professionally handled and solutions came out better than planned. Jason Rossi and his lead foreman on our job Brian Smith are very professional. Brian provided a wealth of knowledge in regards to our entire first floor remodel project. Brian Smith is trustworthy and the quality of his work is impeccable. Job well done JRossi Construction!!

The work quality was outstanding, the crew friendly and a delight to work with, and they cleaned up after themselves and left the place in great shape! When I remodel my other unit, there is no doubt that Rossi Construction will be doing the work there also. I had an issue with the door quality of the cabinets and Rossi and his crew met with myself, and the Cabinet Representative immediately, and the issue was resolved to My Satisfaction. You can easily tell that Customer Satisfaction is what everyone in the organization is focused on. Great Job and thanks again, Ed.

Rossi just remodeled our hall bathroom and kitchen. They are incredibly skilled craftsmen who use the best products. We had two different men lead each project and they were both wonderfully skilled (cabinetry, tile, hardware installation, electric, plumbing, painting, etc.). They are honest, hardworking, on schedule, clean up after themselves, and fix problems. We highly recommend them.

Rossi Construction just finished renovating our veterinary hospital. The entire process from start to finish was flawless. Jason was the only contractor who looked at our space and was able to get a rough quote to us within 24 hours. Everything ran on schedule and within budget, and the final product was beautiful. Our project supervisor was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for construction work in the Tampa area.

The guys from Rossi do great work. We did a complete remodel of two levels of our house (we have a split level). The work included a full redesign of the master suite (took space from the bedroom to make a bigger bathroom and add a walk-in closet, also changed configuration of some windows), full redesign of main level (kitchen, living, and dining space) that included floating a sunken floor and removing walls to open the space, and cosmetic updates to the rest of the bedrooms (new doors, trim, paint, etc.). Only small issues were due to subcontractors, and Rossi made sure everything was brought up to expectation. We're super happy with the result and would not hesitate to use them on future projects.

I would highly recommend Rossi construction. Jason and his employees were very professional, very conscientious, and definitely went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the project. If I emailed questions, they were promptly answered. I believe the pricing on the project was very fair. I am recommending them to all my friends. It was a great experience working with this contractor. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Overall, the remodel went quite well. The workmanship is very good.The crew was very punctual and professional. I found some minor issues that I pointed out to them, and they resolved them to our satisfaction. They could have done a better job with drop cloths in the hallways. There was a fair amount of joint compound that got tracked around on the carpet, and some of the dirt & debris got ground into the carpet. However, I consider this to be a minor issue, and would definitely consider using them again.
