Dear Valued Customer,

Handyman Connection of Mountain View is committed to providing the highest quality services to our customers. We know that our customers have a choice, and we are grateful for your continued partnership.

For the past several years, Handyman Connection of Mountain View has been absorbing processing and transaction fees related to payments made by credit card. Unfortunately, our costs for credit card acceptance have continued to rise. Credit card rates have continued to skyrocket over the last few years, and more and more credit cards are run with the card not present (phone transactions, etc.). “Card not present” transactions also increase the rate we are charged. The use of credit cards to pay bills has also increased significantly.

Effective April 1, 2023, we will begin adding a 3% convenience fee for all credit card payments. The fee with be added to payments made with Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover to offset the fees charged by the card companies. In accordance with credit card network rules, Handyman Connection of Mountain View cannot profit from this fee, and it does not exceed our expenses associated with accepting credit card payments.

Payments made by check, electronic payment (ACH/EFT), wire, or debit card will not be charged the convenience fee.

We thank you for your understanding as we implement this fee and offset some of the increased inflationary costs we are all incurring. We are happy to work with you on alternate payment options.

5 Kitchen Shelving Ideas to Try in 2020

Creating storage is the best way to improve any space, and that’s especially true for your kitchen. But if you’re not looking to spring for a new set of large, bulky cabinets, shelves are an affordable, space-saving alternative that – when installed correctly – can add style to any kitchen area. 

Not sure which shelves to choose for your space? Here are some kitchen shelving trends and ideas to look into:

5 Shelving Trends to Bring Your Kitchen Into The New Decade

1. Floating Shelves

Floating shelves are one of the most popular kitchen shelving trends as of late. These are shelves that aren’t attached to anything and instead are mounted to the wall. Floating shelves are also a great way to add a pop of shine or texture to your space, as they come in a variety of styles including traditional wood, brass and even copper. 

2. Convert Cabinets to Open Shelving

A cost-effective way to dip your toe into the open shelving movement is to turn your existing cabinets into open shelves. It can open up the space and make it easier for you to grab what you want and go, without drastically changing the space.

Important Note:
Converting cabinets to open shelves involves more than just taking the doors and hinges off. If done incorrectly, you can permanently damage your cabinets, ruining the look of your kitchen and reducing the value of your home. Make sure to do your homework ahead of time, and if you’re not up to the task, call an expert to handle your custom storage needs.

3. High-Perimeter Shelving

Looking for a stylish but functional way to store your most beautiful china? Opt for high shelving all around the perimeter of your kitchen. This kitchen shelving trend is popular in kitchens with tall ceilings, and makes for a great place to store (and show off) delicate glassware like champagne flutes, decorative plates and other unique kitchenware.

4. Above-Sink Storage

The area above the sink is oftentimes an overlooked space. Consider adding a small shelf above the sink – either directly above the sink or hanging over your head – to store soap or other cleaning supplies. If there’s a window in front of your sink, use the ledge to grow your favorite cooking herbs like basil, chives or mint. 

5. Hooks or Racks

If you don’t like the idea of adding multiple shelves to your kitchen, look into hooks or racks to hang dishes, pots, pans or other necessary items. This makes them easy to grab and gives the space a more three-dimensional look.
