Quality Kitchen Remodeling Services in Connecticut

Our Connecticut kitchen remodeling contractors can ensure the hub of your home is the perfect combination of style and functionality.

Better Built Kitchens understands that updating your kitchen may be the single most important home renovation you ever undertake.

Homeowners spend more on kitchen makeovers than on any other home improvement, and with good reason – according to real estate and home remodeling professionals, up to 80 percent of the cost of a kitchen refit can be recovered if you sell your house.

But this will only happen with a kitchen revamp completed to the highest standards of professionalism, and that’s where Better Built Kitchens comes in.

Whether or not you’re thinking about moving home, it’s important that your kitchen remodel creates an inviting space with maximum functionality for the central space of your home life.

However, kitchen revamps can present certain problems – challenges that our experienced Connecticut kitchen renovation contractors are experts in overcoming.

Our kitchen refit specialists provide a one-stop resource for kitchen remodels – from innovative design to the perfect finish, including quality kitchen cabinet and appliance installation services.

Our kitchen designers will evaluate the available space in your kitchen and advise you on a blueprint to make the most of it.

Then our kitchen makeover technicians will carry out the works to exacting standards, with quality services across every aspect of your kitchen renovation.

Eat-in Kitchens and Kitchen Islands

Better Built Kitchens specializes in:

  • Eat-in kitchen design and construction, which has become one of our most sought-after kitchen remodeling services.

Eat-In Kitchens

From large spaces to comfortably hold a dining table to creating casual breakfast bars, kitchens where you can eat where the food is prepared have become increasingly popular for greater convenience and in line with open-plan home design trends.

Our eat-in kitchen installation options can give you a secondary space in addition to a main dining room or provide a hub for family life where everyone can get together to cook, eat and socialize.

Over the years, formal dining rooms have gone in and out of fashion but eating in the kitchen retains its appeal more than ever in today’s fast-paced lifestyle with an emphasis on casual dining.

Depending on available space, Better Built Kitchens can offer several eat-in kitchen options with smart design solutions.

We can help you with advice on:

  • Eat-in kitchen seating.
  • Eat-in kitchen dining counters.
  • Eat-in kitchen breakfast nooks.
  • Dining furniture for larger eat-in kitchens.

Kitchen Islands

A kitchen island makes kitchens more functional and convenient, and Better Built Kitchens can offer you multiple options, including:

  • Kitchen islands that match base cabinets and countertops for an integral look.
  • Islands with concealed cabinets and open shelves.
  • Islands with integrated appliances.
  • Islands with refrigerated drawers and wine racks.
  • Islands that provide a key feature in eat-in-kitchens.
  • Islands whose primary function is an extra kitchen workstation.
  • Islands that define the perimeter of the kitchen where it meets an open-plan family room.

Materials Overview

The materials you choose for your kitchen remodel play a pivotal role in both the aesthetics and functionality of the space. Let's delve into some of the most popular materials used in kitchen remodels across Hartford, Connecticut, and the US, and then explore their pros and cons.

Countertop Materials


  • Pros: Granite countertops are celebrated for their durability, especially against heat, scratches, and stains. Each slab offers its own unique pattern, enhancing the overall aesthetics of your kitchen. Plus, granite can elevate a home's sense of luxury.
  • Cons: On the other hand, granite demands periodic sealing to retain its stain-resistant quality. Its weight requires it to be supported by sturdy cabinet bases, and it might be a bit pricey for some budgets.


  • Pros: Quartz countertops shine because of their non-porous nature, superbly resisting stains. Available in myriad designs, they require no sealing, simplifying upkeep.
  • Cons: Quartz does have its vulnerabilities. Direct exposure to excessive heat can mar its surface, and its price tag often exceeds that of granite.


  • Pros: For those mindful of expenses, laminate countertops are ideal. Their diverse range of colors and patterns and easy maintenance make them a practical choice.
  • Cons: However, they don't match the durability of stone counterparts. They're susceptible to chipping, scratches, and can't handle too much heat.

Flooring Options


  • Pros: Hardwood floors exude a timeless allure. Adaptable to various styles, they can be refinished numerous times and enhance a home's value.
  • Cons: They do have their frailties. They might show signs of water damage over time and could scratch or dent. Regular upkeep is necessary to keep them looking their best.


  • Pros: Tile floors, known for their resilience and water-resistance, come in a rich variety of styles, patterns, and colors, and are straightforward to clean.
  • Cons: They do have drawbacks. In colder climates, they can feel quite cold, and their hard surface won't forgive a dropped dish.


  • Pros: Laminate floors offer the appearance of more costly materials at a fraction of the price. Their resistance to stains and easy installation make them popular.
  • Cons: They can't be refinished like hardwood and are less enduring. Water is their nemesis, potentially causing significant damage.

Cabinet Woods


  • Pros: Oak cabinets are synonymous with strength. Their distinct grain pattern lends character, and they can be finished in various ways to complement diverse styles.
  • Cons: They are quite hefty and might appear old-fashioned if not styled appropriately. The pronounced grain might be a tad too much for some.


  • Pros: Maple cabinets, with their smooth finish, resist dents well. They're versatile for staining due to their light hue.
  • Cons: However, they might strain some budgets and sometimes, darker mineral streaks might show. Their grain might seem too subdued for those preferring more texture.


  • Pros: Cherry cabinets radiate luxury with their rich hue that matures gracefully over time. They feature a refined grain pattern that's pleasing to the eye.
  • Cons: They are more of an investment compared to other woods. Softer than oak, they might show dents over time. They can darken significantly, which might not suit everyone's taste.


  • Pros: Pine cabinets bring a touch of rustic charm. They're receptive to paint, allowing for diverse looks.
  • Cons: Being softer, they're prone to dents and scratches. They can occasionally have knots, which might not charm everyone. Regular maintenance is key to keep them in top shape.
