Architectural DigestBilotta Kitchens was highlighted in a recent article in Architectural Digest. The article discusses the benefits of donating used cabinets, appliances and fixtures following a kitchen renovation to a leading non-profit organization in the field, Renovation Angel.

Donating used kitchen fixtures offers several benefits, such as environmental stewardship, the creation of jobs and the ability to include these donations on income tax returns. As an added bonus, Renovation Angel offers insured removal of these items from the renovation site and then re-sells them on their website. The organization puts the proceeds from the sale toward a variety of important programs focused on helping at-risk youth, social entrepreneurship and addiction recovery, among others.

In the article, Jim Bilotta Jr. explains that Bilotta Kitchens has been using Renovation Angel for many years on many client kitchen renovations. He adds that Bilotta’s clients like the fact that their kitchen implements will be re-used, and that they are offered significant tax advantage for their donations.

Jim underscores the fact that Renovation Angel is intimately involved with drug addiction and rehabilitation centers in the greater New York area. With the opioid epidemic factoring so prominently within every aspect of society, Renovation Angel’s work is extremely important.

The Deanna Kory Team newsletterIn the Deanna Kory Designs 2018 Spring Newsletter, designer and co-owner of Bilotta Kitchens, Regina Bilotta discusses the role of the kitchen as an asset for the resale value of a home. Whether or not you plan to sell your home in the near future, kitchen remodels qualify as “money well spent”, according to many experts. A remodeled kitchen can positively impact the resale value of your home, as well as providing you as the homeowner with a lot of personal satisfaction in the meantime.

Regina cautions homeowners who intend to sell their home within five years of a remodel to select from materials, furniture and accessories that will appeal to potential buyers. In these cases, it’s wise to choose a neutral color palette and design with a “resale-conscious” aesthetic. Regina suggest maintaining clean lines and choosing a fresh, white kitchen with soft color undertones like gray, blue or taupe.

Other recommendations include designing with a “less is more” philosophy for decor and accessories and giving consideration to functionality. For example, the addition of an island can create more work space in the kitchen. Cabinetry with clean and simple lines and countertops that are made from manufactured stone-based materials are both options that will look attractive and will withstand the test of time. Extras like pull-out drawers, built-in spice racks and lit cabinet interiors are all value-added features that may help entice potential home buyers.
