Franchise Of The Year: Re-Bath and 5 Day Kitchen of Phoenix

And The Winner Is….

ReBath and 5 Day Kitchens of Phoenix!

We are thrilled to be named “Franchise Of The Year” for both 5 Day Kitchens and ReBath of Phoenix.

In January, The Home Brands Group presented Kurt Kittleson, owner of Re-Bath and 5 Day Kitchens of Phoenix, with this prestigious award at their annual convention. The Home Brands Group Reunion is a convention of hundreds of franchises such as; Re-Bath, 5 Day Kitchens, and bluefrog Plumbing + Drain.

Re-Bath LLC President, Marty Rasmuseen, says, “Kurt has been a successful entrepreneur his entire life. He is committed to developing his team and giving them the opportunity to excel. Above all, he is a leader and team player with the Re-Bath organizations best interests in mind. He encourages all to work not only harder, but smarter.”

Danielle Lund, Marketing Director for Re-Bath and 5 Days of Kitchen of Phoenix says, “Re-bath and 5 Day Kitchens of Phoenix puts the customer first. We all know that the construction business has a negative perception, so it’s our goal at Re-bath and 5 Day Kitchens of Phoenix to give our customers a superior experience from start to finish. We have a dedicated team of people who enjoy their job and helping to give our customers a painless remodeling experience. We wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for our customers. Winning the Franchise of the Year award is the icing on the cake but the true joy is seeing our company grow with satisfied customers.”

Kurt Kittleson founded ReBath in 1979 and took over the Phoenix metro area in March of 2010. Two years later he became the Re-Bath and 5 Day Kitchen remodeler for Northern Arizona. Kittleson says, “Remodeling is a very difficult business for the home owner. We try and make all phases as simple as we can for them. By offering bath, kitchen, and a full line of flooring, we are accomplishing one of our goals, making it simpler and easier for the home owner. Our objective in all 3 lines is to bring as much of our design center to the consumer as possible, so their time and travel for making their choices is minimal. If we do a good job, and we do, why would you want to work with 3 contractors when you can work with one? Our customer satisfaction and convenience is the reason we are Franchise Of The Year. We are all very proud.”

The Golden Age of Kitchens

What Made The 1950s a Revolutionary Time for Kitchens (and how it can help you design the ultimate cooking space)

When we look back at the early 1950s, America was in a time of black-and-white wholesomeness. The dress was modest and heavy, the entertainment was inoffensive and family friendly, and the county was enjoying a post-World-War-II economic boom that allowed returning GIs and their families the chance, for the first time, to invest in homes of their own. Despite this seemingly white-bread-milquetoast-paradise, change was bubbling below the surface and American society would soon experience a cultural and political revolution like it had not seen before. Though the music would soon get faster and louder; the clothing would become more colorful and risqué; and the voices of the American youth would be heard louder and taken more seriously than they ever had before; a revolution of another kind was taking place right in our very homes – and it was happening in the kitchen.

Kitchen Trends of 2024

Get on These 2024 Kitchen Trends

The kitchen serves an essential function in our homes. But more and more, homeowners are looking to add some design flair to their spaces. At Re-Bath & Kitchens, we’re excited to introduce customers to the emerging design trends redefining kitchen spaces. Whether you’re planning a remodel or dreaming up your future home, the latest 2024 kitchen design trends can bring you the inspiration you need. We’re always recommending new features to our Phoenix, AZ customers, but here are some highlights from the year so far.

Style Fusion

One emerging trend in kitchen design for 2024 is the combination of different styles and creating spaces uniquely reflective of individual tastes and lifestyles. This eclectic approach allows homeowners to blend the rustic charm of farmhouse aesthetics with the sleek, minimalistic lines of modern design or to merge classic elements with the latest technology. This integration not only showcases creativity and personal expression but also fosters an adaptable, welcoming kitchen environment.

Smart Appliances

Smart appliances have been on the rise in the past few years. Today, kitchens are more connected and convenient than ever! The team at Re-Bath & Kitchens can help you consider the latest kitchen technologies for your space, including:

  • Smart Refrigerators—These advanced appliances keep your food fresh like any other refrigerator, but with a futuristic twist. They come with touchscreen interfaces, internal cameras, and connectivity to your smartphone. At the press of a button, you may be able to track expiration dates, find recipes based on what you have on hand, and even see inside without opening the door.
  • Smart Ovens—Equipped with Wi-Fi and voice control capabilities, these ovens can preheat remotely via a smartphone app or voice commands. Some models also feature advanced sensors to control cooking temperatures and ensure perfect results every time.
  • Smart Cooktops—These allow you to control temperature and cooking times with precision. Thanks to Wi-Fi capabilities, smart cooktops can be controlled remotely and may include safety features like automatic shut-offs.
  • Voice Controls—Some appliances come equipped with state-of-the-art voice controls. Your faucet, refrigerator, coffee maker, and more can now be controlled with a simple verbal command.
  • Interactive Kitchen Hubs—For the gold standard in contemporary kitchen trends, add an interactive hub to your space. Mounted on your wall or fridge, these devices serve as the control center for all your connected kitchen devices. View recipes, manage your grocery list, and even control other smart appliances directly from this central hub.

Reimagining Backsplashes

When we think of a traditional backsplash, we often picture a pop of bright color, subway tile, or a creative mosaic. But nowadays, homeowners are rethinking how they incorporate backsplashes into modern kitchen styles. Many people are straying away from bold colors and opting instead for a minimalistic look. Yet others use the same stone they have as their countertops. If you like the look of subtle colors and understated designs, you’ll love this 2024 kitchen trend!

Elegant Lighting Fixtures

Elegant lighting fixtures are another up-and-coming trend. Homeowners are moving beyond purely functional lighting and preferring to integrate sophisticated, stylish pieces into their kitchen space. From dramatic pendant lights above the island to under-cabinet LEDs that offer a subtle glow, the right lighting can transform a kitchen.

Sustainability Is Key

Sustainability is at the forefront of kitchen design trends in 2024, with eco-friendly materials and energy-efficient appliances becoming a priority for homeowners. By incorporating reclaimed wood, bamboo, and recycled glass, your kitchen can be environmentally conscious without compromising your aesthetic. You might also be interested in solar-powered appliances, water-saving devices, and composting systems that further contribute to a sustainable living space.

Calming Color Palettes

What kinds of colors do you have in mind for your kitchen? This year, soft hues are in! Shades like sage green, light blue, and warm earth tones are gaining popularity. These colors promote a sense of relaxation and peace while also enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of the kitchen. We love recommending these shades for those who want to create a stress-free haven in their homes. However, that doesn’t mean other colors are all the way out—burgundy is also making a comeback!
