The Benefits of Quality Kitchen Carpentry and Remodeling

If you plan to remodel your kitchen, be sure you get a contractor who provides quality carpentry and remodeling services. The benefits of quality kitchen carpentry and remodeling range from simply enjoying your home and kitchen to increasing your home’s value, to functionality to an updated look and durable construction. Below are 3 reasons to look for quality carpentry and remodeling for your kitchen.

Make Your Kitchen More Enjoyable & Practical to Use

Have you ever thought your kitchen needed some new features or extra space, such as adding cabinets for more storage space? When you remodel your kitchen, your daily routines are more manageable, your space becomes more comfortable and enjoyable to use, and you have more options to meet your cooking or entertainment needs. Saturn Construction LLC’s experienced carpenters can remodel your kitchen to improve functionality and usability by expanding space, and building and installing premade and custom furniture such as cabinets or tables.

Philadelphia has a varied mix of older homes and modern ones, from row homes to single-family housing in the suburbs. Older homes especially might have smaller rooms that need restructuring to meet your needs. For example, say you want to make your kitchen into more of an entertainment space, and therefore you want to increase the amount of space by connecting the kitchen and dining room. In that case, we can remove walls (both load-bearing and non-load-bearing) to create a more open space that is more comfortable to use for entertaining.

Another example would be if you live in an older house, you can have old wiring replaced and the lighting fixtures updated during the remodel. So you would have improved visibility, which makes meal prep and cooking easier, or you could enhance your kitchen’s ambiance if you want to use the room more for entertaining.

The team at Saturn Construction has a history of designing and building kitchen projects that make for beautiful, enjoyable spaces while also using space intelligently, from clever cabinet and storage solutions to kitchen tables and islands.

Increase Home Value

One of the most significant benefits of quality kitchen carpentry and remodeling is increasing your home’s value. Of all the potential home improvement projects that can increase property value, remodeling the kitchen has one of the highest ROI. As discussed in previous blogs, remodeled kitchens can expect a return on investment anywhere from 50 to 70 percent, and here is why.

A kitchen is a significant factor that home buyers focus on when assessing a house. Buyers also show a willingness to pay more for a home with a newly remodeled kitchen than a house with an outdated-looking one. If your kitchen has undergone quality remodeling and carpentry work, you can attract buyers with eye-catching photos and recoup most remodeling costs by listing your home for more money.

Saturn Construction offers kitchen remodeling services based on your budget to help improve your ROI should you decide to sell your home in the future.

Update Your Kitchen with a Unique Look & Design

Another benefit of quality kitchen carpentry and remodeling is that you can update your kitchen’s current design and appearance to one that matches your unique preferences. A beautiful kitchen is a more comfortable space for you and your guests. And as we mentioned earlier, a visually appealing kitchen is excellent for catching the attention of prospective buyers (especially one that has a custom look.) If your home is several decades old, which many houses in Pennsylvania counties such as Bucks or Delaware are, remodeling will allow you to get modern kitchen amenities and design.

Working with our carpentry and kitchen remodeling firm will allow you to implement your unique or custom design. We can create and install furnishings and furniture, from pre-built to custom-made, to give your kitchen a distinctive look. In addition, we can provide you with professional recommendations on the materials to ensure durable construction and to help you achieve your design goals.

The Role of Cabinet Makers in Different Types of Cabinetry

Cabinet makers are specialized woodworkers who design, fabricate, and assemble cabinetry. Their duties and skills range from cutting and shaping the wood to design to installation and more. So how involved will these woodworkers be in the entire process, from design to installation, depending on the kinds of cabinets their customers buy? Here is how cabinet makers are involved with your project and how that may change depending on what cabinets you purchase.

The Different Types of Cabinets, And How Cabinet Makers Are Involved In Your Project

Cabinets are grouped into four distinct categories based on the quality of construction and how homeowners, cabinet makers, and contractors use them throughout a remodeling process. These four types are ready-to-assemble (RTA), stock, semi-custom, and custom. While the cabinet maker is involved in constructing the various cabinet pieces, their range of used skills and techniques varies depending on the project.

Ready-to-Assemble (RTA)

For homeowners looking for the most affordable cabinet options, look for ready-to-assemble (RTA) cabinets. RTA cabinets are the kind of cabinets you find at chain home stores, ones where you need to assemble them yourself. In this instance, a cabinet maker constructs the components of a cabinet to be assembled by someone inexperienced in woodworking. The designs of these cabinets tend to be simple since the maker and manufacturer need to account for people of different DIY skill levels putting the cabinets together and perhaps even installing them.

Stock cabinets are mass-produced and just about fully assembled, ready to be installed at your home. Cabinet makers will have assembled all of the components of stock cabinets, trimmed and glued the multiple wooden pieces together, and may even install the cabinet depending on whether the homeowner opts to go the professional route over the DIY one. Stock cabinets are constructed from modular units and typically use particleboard covered with plastic laminates or solid wood. These cabinets may offer a relatively limited range of accessories, so if you want or need certain accessories (or sizes), you may have to look towards more custom cabinets.


Semi-custom cabinets allow for some size adjustments and a wide selection of materials and styles. For a semi-custom cabinet, you may be working much more closely with the cabinet maker than if you were to purchase an RTA or stock one. For example, a homeowner who wants custom doors and drawers may work either directly with the cabinet maker or indirectly through a sales representative. In addition, the construction process may be much more involved and complex than with RTA or stock cabinets. The cabinet maker may have to use their knowledge of wood and metal to find better materials and use more complicated and higher-quality construction methods.


At the highest end is entirely custom cabinetry. These cabinets are wholly made-to-order and offer the most diversity in style, material, finishes, and accessories. Like the semi-custom cabinets, you may be working closely with the cabinet maker on the design, materials, and installation of a custom cabinet. Intricate and complex construction and assembly techniques are often utilized with custom cabinets as part of their quality, such as dovetail joints. A cabinet maker has the opportunity to make full use of all of their skills, training, and knowledge when working with custom cabinets.
