Mission Viejo Kitchen Updated

Home Ideas

I love My Mission Viejo Home. Like most homeowners, I try to maintain its condition so it retains its value. As we live our lives, our needs change, so we need to modify and update our homes to keep up with us and maintain a level of comfort. Before I make any big changes, I like to fully research the project and try to find inspiration. I may not find exactly what I need or what I can afford, but half the fun is discovering a whole new way of doing something and then getting it done.

I like to visit model homes to see latest trends, but I use the Houzz app to pinpoint and organize my ideas. I find it an indispensable resource for just about any home project. You can also check it out online if you don’t want to use the app. You can also find contractors and vendors there. For instance, the Mission Viejo contractor I hired is on Houzz and has posted a portfolio of his work. See it here.

I can’t really recommend a good contractor for every need, however, an excellent resource for qualified contractors is the Houzz site. Local contractors are rated, have a portfolio you can view on line and you can read their reviews. Check it out HERE.

Resources

For purchasing new appliances for your home, look into the prices and varieties they have online at Home Depot, Lowe’s and Sears. Find something on line and then go check it out in the showroom. I have worked with all of these vendors, and was satisfied with their service.

If you are thinking of tile, go check out our local tile store, Arizona Tile on El Paseo. I chose their tile for my home and am incredibly happy. It cost a little more than what I wanted to spend, but I was ecstatic with the end result.

Again, I can’t recommend a contractor or handyman, but PLEASE go to Houzz to browse reputable local contractors and even landscape contractors. Check it out HERE. It’s free. I have also been successful when using Angie’s List.

Ladyfinger paint Benjamin MooreFor paint, I either go to Dunn Edwards or Benjamin Moore. There is a Dunn Edwards on Lake Forest Drive, and the Vista Paint in Mission Viejo carries Benjamin Moore paints. I really love the colors of Benjamin Moore. I recently chose their color “Ladyfinger” for my kitchen and family room.

About Town

Mission Viejo MonumentMission Viejo is a decent size city in Orange County with a population of around 100,000. Fortunately, it is well-planned so that retail and commercial centers are strategically located with easy freeway access and near major cross streets for good visibility. Some shops come and go, but others have been around a long time like Moore’s Sewing Center on Marguerite. I have been going to Denault’s True Value Hardware since it opened at the corner of Oso and Marguerite. My son worked there for years. Custom Comfort has been around for decades, too, and has grown into a great success. However, I purchased my new mattress at Orange County Mattress on Alicia; sorry Custom Comfort!

I enjoy visiting all the Starbucks, my favorite is the one off Oso and the 5 Freeway. I and my family have been purchasing new tires at the America’s Tire Store on Marguerite for years. Paradise Donuts and Deli at La Paz and Muirlands is a hidden gem for yummy donuts and good service. For more yummy stuff, French’s in the Gateway Center is fabulous. I just painted my home and bought the paint at Vista Paint at the corner of Muirlands and Alicia. In that same Vista Paint Plaza, there used to be a bridal store in the 1980’s. I purchased a veil there. I hired Stud Construction to perform a kitchen remodel. Their office is on Madero in Mission Viejo.

I have been going to Bagels and Brew off Alicia and Olympiad since they opened. The owner is wonderful, and I am happy her business is thriving. Misson Viejo Florist has always provided me with good service as has Mission Viejo Rentals off Jeronimo and Los Alisos. My son Likes ChocObean and Rubino’s Pizza off Marguerite and Oso Parkway. Royal Donuts and Burgers off Jeronimo and Marguerite has been around forever, and I do like their donuts!

Here are the sights of the city and Mission Viejo businesses:

Maybe I will see you around!
