The Remodel You’ve All Been Waiting For

Premier Kitchen Remodel

Kitchen Remodel in Sacramento CA

We waited a long time to remodel our house. As a reward to ourselves as new empty nesters, we decided to finally remodel the house. Now that we didn’t have a bunch of rugrats running around, we figured it would be a good way to keep busy and it was the perfect time to renovate our home.

We called Premier Remodeling & Construction because they were referred to us by two different friends of ours. The two friends could not have more different styles when it comes to furniture and décor. One of them likes a very rustic and vintage feel and the other one is minimalist and modern. But Premier managed to completely capture the styles of both people to make a one of a kind home for both of them.

Though we had a few remodel projects to accomplish, we had Premier start with the kitchen. We had always wanted to have a kitchen that was open and welcoming, but our counter space was always cluttered and there wasn’t enough room for us to entertain. Premier created our dream kitchen, complete with all stainless steel and brand-new matching appliances. They did a great job redoing the floor and countertops too. Everything formed a very cohesive design and stayed true to what we had in mind.

Also in the kitchen, we had Premier install custom cabinets. After finally deciding on what kind of wood we wanted and which style we preferred, we elected for a lighter finish with more stainless steel hardware. An option that was available was also European hingeless cabinets that would make the kitchen look more sophisticated that it was.

Another remodel project we had them do was our bathroom, which was in a mild state of disrepair. The tile in our bathroom was just terrible and it was in serious need of being renovated. We had them install a beautiful vanity with stainless steel hardware and dark wood. The result was beyond stunning. It almost made us wish we had renovated the guest bedroom so at least people would be able to see how great our new bathroom is! Premier did a fantastic job of getting everything right the first time!

Now, my friends ask me for referrals when they come over and see what we’ve done with our house. It’s surprising that we waited this long, because now we wish we had done it earlier.

Gingivitis: What You Need to Know


Editor’s Note: Thank you to Ultimate Dental Group of Sacramento and Elk Grove for providing this article on gingivitis.

Of people aged between 35 and 44, over 50% have or have had gingivitis. Gingivitis is a treatable condition, however it can be dangerous if left untreated. Untreated gingivitis can result in more serious periodontal disease, which is a contributory factor of heart and lung disease.

What is it?

Gingivitis is one of the most common oral ailments, and luckily, it is also entirely reversible and preventable.

What causes it?

Gingivitis is caused by plaque buildup in the teeth that create byproduct that damages the gums. Not brushing properly or failing to floss can lead to symptoms of gingivitis.

How do I know I have it?

Symptoms of gingivitis include red or swollen gums, gums that bleed easily and mild inflammation of the gums due to plaque buildup.

How can I prevent it?

The most important thing you can do to prevent gingivitis is by removing plaque regularly and properly.

  • Brush twice daily with a soft-bristled or power toothbrush. An electrical toothbrush can remove up to two times more plaque than an ordinary toothbrush.
  • Use an anti-gingivitis or anti-plaque toothbrush that contains fluoride so that it will strengthen teeth and prevent decay.
  • Use a mouthwash containing cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC), which is an effective anti-microbial agent.
  • Be sure to floss once a day to stimulate gums and remove food particles and plaque buildup between teeth and around the gum line.
  • Most importantly, make sure to visit your local dentist and receive biannual check ups to remove plaque.
