How to Choose A Remodeling Company

How to Choose A Remodeling Company

  Once you have made the decision that it is time to remodel, a remodeling company must be chosen. This is a very important decision, as the success of the remodel depends almost entirely on the people who are entrusted with the job. These people will be working in your house, and when they leave you will have to live with the changes they have created. However, there is no reason for worry, as great remodeling companies are easy to spot. The following are guidelines on how to choose a remodeling company. Ask Around Your best resources will be your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors. Ask around and see if anyone you know can recommend a remodeling company. Chances are, you know at least a few people that have remodeled, and many of them will be happy to share their stories. If someone you know had a bad experience, be sure to stay away from that remodeler. On the other hand, remodelers who are highly praised can go on your short list.   Check Online Reviews Now that you have a list of remodelers recommended by your friends, take your search online. Before you start googling, remember that online reviews are not always reliable. However, if you find that a company your friend recommended has consistently low ratings, it’s possible they may have changed the way they do things since your friend used them.  Read recent reviews closely, if it seems like reviewers are getting a discount in exchange for a positive yelp review, run away. This is a huge red flag that the company can’t get good reviews...
5 Signs that it’s Time to Remodel Your Kitchen

5 Signs that it’s Time to Remodel Your Kitchen

If you had the opportunity, chances are there is at least one thing you would change about your kitchen. If you had the budget and time a remodel would be the right way to go. Most of the time people get too comfortable with the status quo and ignore the warning signs that it’s time for a kitchen remodel. We have come up with 5 signs that it’s time to remodel your kitchen. It is Walled-off from the Rest of your house Modern kitchens are great for the chef of the house. Updated kitchens are frequently open to the dining room or family room, allowing the chef space to entertain, be social and still cook that fabulous meal. Kitchens in older homes are often walled off from the rest of the house, making cooking a lonely and secluded process.  Knocking down walls and opening up your kitchen to the dining room or family room  opens  up your whole house and increases visibility. It allows for a great opportunity to entertain guests, as you can remain in the conversation while you cook. Your Appliances are Reaching the End Unless your home is new, it is likely the appliances in your kitchen were purchased and installed when it was built. If they were purchased at the same time, chances are they will all break down or stop working in the same time span. While this time can be a hassle, it can also be an opportunity. Don’t limit yourself to purchasing appliances that fit into already-allocated spaces. Take this time to reimagine your kitchen and remodel it to fit your dream...
She Said She-Shed: How to Utilize Your She-Shed Space

She Said She-Shed: How to Utilize Your She-Shed Space

Chances are you’ve gone to a friend or neighbor’s house and been invited into their “man cave.” This ominous-sounding room has come to be a staple in many American households. A cross between an office and bedroom, it is a man’s private space in the home. But what about a woman’s private space, you might ask? Well, that’s an interesting story. Until recently they haven’t had one, but feminists rejoice! With the invention of the She-Shed, there is finally a place for women to get their work and play done in a private and uninterrupted space. Ok… But what exactly is a She-Shed? A woman’s place is no longer in the home. A She-Shed is a shed or barn that is converted into a private space for a woman. It doesn’t matter if the space is a remodeled garage, a room addition, a purchased storage shed or a hand-made wooden barn, as long as it provides a private sanctuary. What is the purpose of a She-Shed? The purpose of a She-Shed is as unique as the woman who uses it. Everyone needs a quiet place to get things done. Some women use their She-Shed for work. As work becomes more and more possible from the home, people often need to separate their work space from their home space. More often, women use She-Sheds for their hobbies or passions. Sometimes in this crazy busy life, you need a place that’s dedicated to doing things you love. Many women use their She-Sheds for gardening, scrapbooking, crafting, sewing, or being with their friends. But these spaces don’t have to be dedicated to...
2015 Kitchen and Bathroom Trends

2015 Kitchen and Bathroom Trends

  Have you ever thought of what are the  2015 kitchen and bathroom designs? The trendsetters for the month of January brings more than just a brand new year, but also new predicted trends. I will bring to you five prominent trends that are predicted from sites such as Forbes and Better Homes and Gardens.   Black or White? Starting off the trends, the theme colors for this year are black and white. In regards to the color white, it creates a neutral palette for people to work with in their kitchens or bathrooms. Using white provides a base color that anyone can mix and match other colors with. Additionally, black is another exceptional color choice to design with. Ever heard of people making references to the phrase “the new black”? In this year’s design trend, black is the new black.   Metallics Another design choice is the usage of warmer-toned metals such as gold or bronze. The choice provides a great accent for your base colors (white or black). Not only is warmer-toned metals a great accent, but it provides a great contrast in color for kitchens and bathrooms. The use of metallics is nothing new in 2015. People use metallics in design for the gleam they provide, and metallics are a real eye catcher. Who would not want a little pizazz in their kitchens?   Open Shelving Also, another upcoming 2015 trend is to continue to promote that “open-concept” feeling in the house. In designing a kitchen, open shelving provides a more open and inviting environment for homeowners. Additionally, open shelving provides easy and simple access to...
