Let me start off by saying, I like Houzz.com. I think there site provides a lot of valuable information to home owners and people looking to remodel. With that being said, that is part of the problem. The site has so much information, it is almost impossible to make yourself stand out. Enter Houzz with their geo targeted advertising. The short of it is, their advertising platform allows business’ like ours to enter into a one year contract for paid placement in a specific category in a specific location. Our category was cabinetry and our location was Morristown and the central New Jersey shore area.
We love the DIY Network. We think they provide useful information for homeowners who want to tackle their project themselves. Despite what other professionals think, we like the idea of more people learning wood working and home improvement. We wish more people would take the time to learn a trade, even if it is just a hobby. DIY Network did a great write up on how to do crown moulding we have posted it below, but suggest to everything to check out everything that the DIY Network has to offer.
The guys over at American Woodworker are always thinking. Check out their write up on how to get the most out of your router and table. To read more tips head to American Woodworker Tips by clicking on the link.
When choosing cabinetry, it is the biggest decision that you will face. Do you go with custom cabinetry, or customized cabinetry? Obviously we believe that you should always go with custom cabinetry. That is pretty much a given. But why? There are reasons to go with both. If you are on a tight budget, choosing pre-made, or customized might be the way to go (although the price of customized is quickly approaching custom). You should always consider getting an estimate on your kitchen design from a custom make as well. Your local maker may be able to work within your budget to give you a superior handcrafted project. Below we will outline a few points to hopefully help you make your decision.
