Building a safer home in Hawaii
As homeowners ponder renovation projects to meet their family’s evolving needs and increase safety in the home, kitchens and bathrooms remain at the top of the list. HK Construction, a fourth-generation kamaaina company that is fully licensed, bonded and insured, recommends smart options to help homeowners create their dream homes while making them as safe as possible.
The kitchen continues to earn its reputation as the heart of the home. An open-concept kitchen, which blends nicely with other areas of the home and improves sightlines, offers numerous advantages. Parents can keep an eye on their kids while they cook, and families of various sizes can gather comfortably and safely to enjoy home cooked meals or takeout. Additionally, upgrading countertops to nonporous solid surfaces or quartz can help homeowners keep the kitchen clean and free of germs.
The bathroom can present the biggest challenge when it comes to keeping a clean environment. The presence of germs and bacteria are difficult to avoid in moist showers, especially when they are finished with tile and porous grout. Grout lines are notorious for trapping mold, mildew and other contaminants. For that reason, many homeowners are opting for shower panels, which help reduce the chances of microbial growth. Large grout-free shower panels, which are available in a variety of materials, are easy to maintain and require less care.
Contact HK today or attend one of the company’s complimentary seminars in May to learn more about how HK Construction can design, build and remodel homes that take homeowners’ safety needs into consideration. Several seminars are held at its Honolulu office each week, including on Saturdays. For your safety, seating is limited, and HK Construction follows strict cleanliness and social distancing practices. Registration required; no walk-ins allowed.
