Heard on the Street: New kitchen showroom opening
News from Post-Bulletin:

Budget-minded homeowners are finding cheaper solutions in the $ 10,000-$ 20,000 range by making do with existing appliances and fixtures, refinishing kitchen cabinets, and shopping for bargains. Suppliers and builders, in turn, are responding to the recession-driven demand for cost-conscious kitchen and bath remodeling with package deals aimed at guaranteeing the costs of materials and labor.

“At first, there was no way I was going to spend $ 18,000 to $ 25,000 to remodel a bathroom,” says homeowner Hannah Laufe, a lawyer in Vienna, Va. “But to get what we wanted, my research showed that was the amount we needed to spend.”

Laufe and husband Richard Miller, a teacher, decided to renovate the outdated and worn…………… continues on Philadelphia Inquirer
