Outdoor Living for Tennessee Fall

Outdoor Living for Tennessee Fall

As the seasons change it’s a good time to consider outdoor living spaces for Tennessee’s fall months.

Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor kitchens are more popular than ever. They’re a great place to cook and socialize simultaneously in an open-air space. Depending on your level of dedication to your culinary skills, your outdoor kitchen may include an oven, refrigerators, an island, and a seating area. Or, you can scale back and install an outdoor grill. Either way, cooking outside keeps unnecessary heat from competing with your air-conditioner on warm summer nights.

Fire Pits

Fire pits have become quite trendy with a variety of styles and sizes available at your local home improvement store or a with a click of the mouse on Amazon. Additionally, there are countless YouTube videos with instructions for building your fire pit. The ambiance of the fire makes for a great quiet evening or the centerpiece of a social gathering. 

Landscaping

Most new construction homes come with some landscaping. Creating a beautiful landscape around your home takes planning and time. When viewing your landscape, determine where you have full sun and partial sun, and plant appropriately. Determine where you want to have more shade and consider fast-growing trees with a canopy. Create islands within your yard with winding paths and water features. With vision, planning, and a willingness to work hard (or hire it out) you can create a desirable landscape that will enhance the curb appeal of your home, and its desirability.

Tips for a Successful Kitchen Remodel

We have a designer on staff with over 30 years of professional cabinet experience. They are here to help you every step of the way. We will handle all the details for you. This includes measuring, design layout, and finish/fixture consultation as needed. DBI will take the time to thoughtfully lay out your space in our design software. We present to you in full color 3D—you will be amazed how this will help you visualize your space! We don’t charge to layout your design, and we will work with you until it is exactly how you want it. Other cabinetry suppliers may offer quick and extremely basic design layouts, but we actually put thought into it! We not only want it to be right, but we want it to be right for YOU!

Order countertops after the cabinets are in

Measure your installed base cabinets to determine the countertop dimensions—don’t use the ones on your plans. The row of cabinets may have a different dimension after installation due to out-of-square walls. Place a carpenter’s square in the corner over the end cabinet. The corner might be narrower than the rest of the wall because of layers of joint compound. Measure to the farthest point on the wall over the cabinets. This is to avoid an ugly gap between the countertop and the wall after the countertops get installed.

Gain precious counter space

Pull-down racks give you instant access to kitchen essentials without the clutter of spice racks or knife holders. After the cooking, the rack swings up against the underside of the cabinet. You can buy ready-made racks or buy a pair of hinges and make your own wooden rack to hold knives, spices or other small items that take up counter space.

Watch out for Floor Gaps

If you’re keeping your existing floor and replacing your cabinets, you may have to deal with gaps between the old floor and the new cabinets. Base cabinets are usually 24 in. deep, but toe-kick depths vary. Cabinet widths run in 3-in. increments from 6 in. to 48 in. If the new cabinets don’t fit the existing cabinet footprint, you’ll have gaps. Be sure the total width of the new cabinets matches the overall width of the ones you’re replacing. Hide gaps smaller than 3/4 in. with molding.

Order Countertops after the Cabinets are in

Measure your installed base cabinets to determine the countertop dimensions. Don’t use the ones on your plans. The row of cabinets may have a different dimension after installation due to out-of-square walls. Place a carpenter’s square in the corner over the end cabinet. The corner might be narrower than the rest of the wall because of layers of joint compound. Measure to the farthest point on the wall over the cabinets. This is to avoid an ugly gap between the countertop and the wall after the countertops are installed.

Gain Precious Counter Space

Pull-down racks give you instant access to kitchen essentials without the clutter of spice racks or knife holders. When the cooking’s completed, the rack swings up against the underside of the cabinet. You can buy ready-made racks or buy a pair of hinges and make your own wooden rack to hold knives, spices or other small items that take up counter space
