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 Difference between Woodworking and Carpentry

As people make remodeling or renovation plans for their homes, they can find themselves needing woodworking and carpentry services. When the time to search for these services comes, however, some people can be unsure which professional to call: a woodworker or a carpenter. People often use these terms interchangeably, but each field is notably different. To help, we will outline the differences between a woodworker and a carpenter and how you can figure out which one you need and when.

The Differences between Woodworking and Carpentry

While these two fields seem like the same thing to most people, there are slight but notable differences.

  • Woodworking is the skill of making items from wood.
  • Carpentry is a trade involving cutting and joining timber to construct buildings or other structures.

Generally, a helpful way to think about the difference is this: woodworkers make items out of wood, and carpenters typically install those wooden items or furnishings. That is the main difference between the two trades, and each one entails different services and skills.


Woodworking is the craft of constructing and building objects out of wood. These objects can range from bowls and musical instruments to furniture such as tables or cabinets. Many people think of woodworking as an art form or making art from wood, and while many woodworkers make art, woodworking also encompasses many other professional and industrial applications. For example, all of the tables, chairs, cabinets, and other furniture and furnishings you see in a big box retail store are made by woodworkers or automated woodworking equipment.

A Carpenter’s job is to construct, install, and repair various wood structures. A critical difference between woodworking and carpentry is the scale and types of objects made within each field. While woodworking ranges from art to everyday furniture, which tends to be relatively small, a carpenter’s job is to build or install structures or more functional objects. Some of the items a carpenter will build or install include roofing, frames, flooring, molding, and more. Often carpenters will specialize in certain aspects of a projects. For example, one carpenter will build the framing of a home kitchen, while another one will install and apply the finishes or trim to the cabinetry.

Other Differences

One other notable difference between these two professions is their locations and work environments. Woodworkers are more likely to be working off site in professional woodworking facilities or large industrial production places. Carpenters are more likely to work on residential or commercial buildings on job sites. The specific tools each field uses also differ: woodworkers use tools such as circular saws, jigsaws, routers and lathes, while carpentry tools overlap with construction tools, such as nail guns and levels.

How Do You Know Which One To Work With?

So now that you see some of the differences between each field, how should you know whether you need woodworking or carpentry for your remodeling or renovation projects? The answer depends on what types of services you need.

  • If you are building or remodeling your home and need someone to install flooring, roofing, cabinets, or other structural aspects, then you need a carpenter.
  • If you want new furniture and want someone to build it, such as a new kitchen table or cabinets, you need a woodworker.
