Two weeks until Xmas!

I can't believe it but it's two weeks until Xmas! Its such a wonderful time of year! All that's missing is some snow! But I won't complain to much I had shoveling! As we get closer to the big day I can't help but notice that my Toys for Tots box is not full yet! Please take a minute the next time your out doing your holiday shopping and pick up an extra toy for a child that's less fortunate than your own. It would make the day of so many children to know that there are people out there still that care about the unknown kids that don't have it so easy! Stop by Kitchen Concepts today to drop off a new unwrapped toy and pick up a bag of candy as our thanks to you for your donation!

Toys for Tots!

Hello all my blogging buddies!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving holiday! I know we did! So nice to eat all that food and see all our wonderful friends and family. Now we are looking forward to Christmas!! I can't believe that the holidays are half way over! This year Kitchen Concepts is please to announce that we are the newest location for Toys for Tots! In case you don't know what that is it's a program run by the US Marines and volunteers to gather gifts for children that are less fortunate for Christmas! All you have to do it drop off a new unwrapped gift at our location or any other Toys for Tots box, and they will be collected wrapped and delivered to needy children for Christmas! Make this year a little more special by doing something great for your community!

Thanksgiving WEEK!

Good Morning all my wonderful Kitchen Concept followers! Can you believe that in a few short days it will be Thanksgiving? Where has this year gone? Kitchen Concepts will be closing down on Thursday and Friday to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday with out friends and family. But don't worry we will be open again on Monday the 26th bright and early to get started on your kitchen dreams. While your celebrating take some time to look around your kitchen and dream about how much easier it would be if maybe you had a double oven? Or a bigger cook top? How about an island that your family or friends could sit around while you are busy cooking away? We can work with anything you can think of.....so start dreaming!

Does your family all come to you for the holidays? Do you have a tiny kitchen that you can barely do what you need it? Is it hard cooking for so many in such a small place?
Why not come down and see what we can do to make your kitchen more functional! It's hard enough to cook for everyone and entertain at the same time so why not make it easier by having a kitchen that gives you the space you need to get everything done!
How about adding a peninsula to your kitchen with a raised bar so while your mincing and chopping this Thanksgiving or Christmas you can talk with some of your family while you work. They'll be out of the way and you wont miss out on all those funny family stories because you'll be right in the middle of them!
Come down and talk with Ellen or Kate about how easy it is to remodel if you work with people who believe in having the job done right the first time!

What is Quartz?

What is Quartz?

Quartz countertops are engineered, but are not considered synthetic
due to the high number of natural quartz particles in each quartz slab.
A quartz countertop is made up of
Quartz Particles, Natural Pigments & Soy-based Resin.

What goes into making a Quartz Slab?
Quartz crystals are ground into small, uniform pieces and particles.  The finer the particles, the more uniform the color on the slab.  The larger the particles, the finished surface will have more depth and sparkle.  Resin is used for binding the materials, and is mixed with natural pigments, along with other materials such as recycled glass, mirror or small flecks of precious metals.  Given the small percentage of resin and fillers used, the end result of the Quartz top is 93% pure quartz.  The finish of the slab is a natural shine and gloss; no finish polish is necessary.

Easy to Care for Surface
It is always recommend to place hot items on a potholder or trivet to prevent any damage.  Everyday spills can be easily cleaned up with warm water and mild dish soap.  For heavy spills, a non-scuff cleaning pad will do the trick!

Home Show Info!

So over the past few weeks in gearing up for our homeshows I've been doing tons of research on everything we offer and even some things we don't to be able to answer everyones questions. So over the next few weeks I'm going to be taking that information and sharing it with you on here incase you missed us at the homeshow!

So today's information will me all about granite!!

Your GRANITE Questions Answered!

How long would I be without a kitchen if I upgrade to granite?
You will enjoy dinner in your new kitchen that evening!

I want granite, but it’s just too expensive for me!
Granite is extremely affordable!  Each color is priced accordingly –
and we include the measure, template and install!

How often do I need to reseal my granite top?
There is a test you can do to see if your granite needs to be resealed. 
Let water stand on your counter top for 15 minutes. If the water is still there after that time you do not need to reseal your granite.

I have heard that granite emits radon gas – is granite safe to have in my home?
The EPA does not believe there to be sufficient data existing to conclude that the types of granite, commonly used in countertops, increase indoor radon levels.

Granite is beautiful, but too hard to clean.
Granite is very easy to clean, just a little mild dish soap and warm water will clean up
anything you may spill.

If I put a hot pan on it I’ve ruined it.
Granite has a high resistance to heat and will most likely not be effected by
hot pots and pans, however, it is always recommended to use a trivet or hot plate!

What to get - polished granite or honed granite?
Polished gives off a very contemporary feel and has a shiny appearance.
Honed has a matte finish and would be for someone who wants the natural look and feel of stone.

What’s the life expectancy of a granite countertop?
With proper maintenance and care of your granite countertop it will last a lifetime.

Granite is too busy looking for my taste.
We have a stone for everyone’s individual taste.  Over 30 colors and styles to choose from, there is a color for everyone!

Will my granite counter top chip?
Granite is a very dense material and under normal wear and tear conditions it will NOT chip and/or scratch.

Remodeling your Kitchen or Bath?

Remodeling.... it's a scary word isn't it? Well it doesn't have to be! I know what your thinking! Lot's of time and even more money is what gets you a new kitchen or bath. Well....you might be wrong. When you have someone tell you what to do and how long it will take to get it done, keep in mind my words! Anything over a week or two is too long for a remodel!! If you have a contractor come in and tell you for a new kitchen your looking at 6-8 weeks of work, what you should be doing is looking for a new contractor! Did you know that your existing cabinets can be ripped out in one day? And that if you have your new cabinets ready to go you can put those up in the same day? Also did you know that if your getting a new countertop it can be installed in one day along with attaching all your plumbing back up...Here at Kitchen Concepts we understand what it's like to have someone come into your home, it can be invasive and leave you feeling overwelmed. That's why we take the time to get it all done right the first time. No super long projects or deadlines that are weeks away. Come see what I mean our office is open 6 days a week or call 413-586-3506 to set up an appointment.

Valentine's Day!!

Do you know what tomorrow is?? Yep! it's Valentine's Day! Maybe this year instead of giving your loved one flowers or chocolates or a sappy card you can give them something they will really love!! Have their kitchen remodeled!! That's a Valentine's day gift they will never forget!! Only problem is topping it next year...but I've got an idea for that too!!! Next year you can redo their bathroom!! OH and for the year after that you can call our friends over at ASAP Painting and get the whole house painted inside and out!! Gosh I've thought of everything!!!

Granite is amazing!

Hello all my blogging friends!
It's another wonderful Monday here at Kitchen Concepts! Walking into our showroom this morning I couldn't help but notice how the sun shines down on our granite counter top displays. When I first started working here I was like most people who think that granite is incredibly expensive, hard to maintain and just isn't for them. But as I've learned from Ellen granite can truly be affordable, easy to care for and is for everyone! Whether it's in your kitchen or bath granite truly is a work of art. And if you think you can save yourself a few bucks and go with a lookalike , you'd be surprised to know that some of the lookalike counter tops are MORE expensive! And they just don't last like granite does! Come down to learn more about what I'm talking about....117 Russell Street in Hadley Ma or call 413-586-3506 and ask all the questions you want.
