Where Do I Start to Remodel My Kitchen?
If you are considering a kitchen remodel, you should know that you could regain up to 70% of the remodeling costs. How? The value that new kitchen cabinets, appliances, countertops, and flooring adds to your home! On top of that, you can greatly improve the overall functionality of your kitchen, reduce energy consumption, improve safety, and just make creating evening meals a lot more enjoyable again. But where do you begin?
Even if you have some basic home improvement skills, you’re not prepared to do a full kitchen remodel. You know that hiring a kitchen remodeling company will be necessary to fully realize the custom kitchen you want. That’s where Twin Brook Construction can help homeowners like you in Lancaster, Chester, and Delaware Counties.
With more than a decade of experience as general contractors for kitchen renovations, door and window replacement and installation, and home additions, you can count on us to deliver exceptional quality and unparalleled craftsmanship. We’ll guide you through every step of the design and build process, starting with a few key considerations.
Determine Your Needs
Before you search for companies that do kitchen renovations near you, you’ll want to start with our favorite part—picturing your ideal kitchen design. Start by determining what you really want. Do you need to increase the size of your kitchen because you have a big family? Are you looking for a better flow so it’s easier to see your children in another room? Are you looking to create a better space for entertaining guests with the kitchen as the hub?
Don’t also forget to consider what aspects of your kitchen you want to replace or improve. Do you want to add a kitchen island? Do your cabinets need to be upgraded? How about adding subway tiles to your backsplash? Determine what’s a need versus a want before you speak to remodeling companies.
Determine Your Budget
The average cost nationwide is nearly $24,000 or $150 per square foot, according to Home Advisor. Averages aside, most homeowners drop between $12,630 and $35,126 for a kitchen remodel. Depending on space, size, materials, change orders, and more, costs vary. So it pays to do some in-depth planning before embarking on a kitchen makeover.
Unless you have limitless funds, it’s best to establish your budget upfront. Don’t get carried away. With all the selections available for countertops, appliances, lighting, cabinetry, and other essentials, you don’t have to compromise on quality to get the kitchen you want. Make sure you leave some contingencies in your budget if you run into issues or want to upgrade certain features.
Determine Your Style
Embrace your style. Do you like dark colors? Light colors? Are you traditional, contemporary, rustic, or eclectic? These decisions will impact your materials in the form of cabinetry, countertops, and appliances and your costs.
As expert kitchen remodeling contractors, we can work with any style or budget you have. We’ll ensure that your kitchen has everything you want, making it functional, elegant, and where everyone wants to be.
If you don’t know what style you want in your kitchen, we highly recommend you browse boards on Pinterest or Houzz or buy some home magazines. Find examples of what you like and bring them to your design consultation with our experienced craftsmen.
Schedule a Design Consult
For a small kitchen remodel, like repainting your kitchen cabinets or installing a new faucet at your sink, it probably makes sense to go it alone and use the money you’d pay a design consultant on upgrading materials instead. But consulting with an interior designer makes excellent sense if you’re planning a much larger remodeling project.
Kitchen designers are skilled at orchestrating solutions to potential problems and providing design insights you might never consider. So, in the long run, the added expense might be worth the investment. These designers can communicate with our construction team the exact specifications you want so that even if you are unsure of the terminology, they’ll help you translate it.
Getting the Kitchen You’ve Always Wanted is as Easy as 1, 2, 3!
After you’ve determined your needs, budget, style, and design goals, it’s time to meet with contractors who specialize in kitchen renovations near you. And for that, there’s no better choice than Twin Brook Construction in southeastern Pennsylvania. We love what we do, so don’t think of us as just another kitchen contractor. We want to work with you to understand your goals and ensure you get the best possible results.
Step 1: Kitchen Design Consult
We start by listening. We first and foremost want to get to know you, so we can make sure we communicate with you in the way that suits you best and meets any of your expectations. We want to address your needs, style, budget, and anything else that might impact your kitchen’s design, so we get it right.
Step 2: Planning Your Kitchen
Once we listen, we get to work. Our project managers will come back to you with a plan. That plan becomes the foundation for your kitchen. We’ll work with you to make any modifications and updates to refine the project until we perfectly capture your ultimate kitchen—whether that includes tiled backsplash or new cabinets.
Step 3: Kitchen Construction
Kitchen construction doesn’t begin until you’ve thoroughly reviewed the plan and we’ve captured your dream kitchen. Before actual construction, we’ll give you an estimated timeframe for completion and work with you to stay within that delivery timeframe. However, supply chain availability may affect completion.

Types of Kitchen Remodels We’ve Completed
No matter what type of kitchen you may have—from an open-spaced great room to a smaller kitchen—Twin Brook Construction is the contractor to call for kitchen renovation near you!
Galley Kitchen Remodel
Big or small, we’re here to make your dream kitchen work for you. Even if you don’t think your space is large enough for a kitchen remodel, we’ve got you covered.

You’ll never run out of storage with this type of kitchen design!
Small Kitchen Remodel
Small kitchens are equally as challenging as large kitchens, partially because of the budget constraints. But small budgets or kitchens won’t deter us from giving you the best kitchen redesign possible. Just look at what we’ve done for our clients.
Modern Kitchen Remodel
