Medford Design-Build is happy to announce that we have officially opened our second location! The new office is in Colleyville: 1005 Glade Road, Ste #135, Colleyville, TX 76034.
We have been serving this area with home design and remodeling services for years, but wanted to offer a local office to our clients in Colleyville, Southlake, Grapevine, Bedford, and surrounding areas that would be closer than our Arlington office. It’s conveniently located on Glade Road and will be perfect for consultations and client review meetings. The office includes a front reception area and access to a large conference room with plenty of seating. The big screen TV will be a great benefit for clients to view their project designs, 3-D renderings and virtual walk-thru videos. We are thrilled to be able to provide a convenient location to our Colleyville & surrounding area clients.
Happy belated 4th of July from the Medford Remodeling Team!
We hope all of you had a wonderful Independence Day.
The star of our newsletter this month is an open-concept kitchen remodel we recently completed in Grand Prairie, Texas. Not only were we able to provide our clients with a beautiful, modern kitchen, but we also created additional storage and countertop space by making some smart layout changes. The result is an open, flowing floor plan with improved functionality and a show-stopping look! Check out the blog to see the amazing transformation!
Looking back at original floor plans and layouts of our clients’ homes often makes us scratch our heads and think, “why would anyone design it that way in the first place?” Unfortunately, “cookie cutter” homes are not always designed in a way that optimizes usable space. Kitchens, in particular, are typically set up in a way that creates unwanted traffic and congestion in the work areas, isolates the cook from the neighboring rooms, and lacks the necessary features for optimal organization and efficiency. These are the most common complaints we get from our clients looking to renovate, and were definitely the case with our most recent kitchen remodel!
Hello, June! Can you believe this year is already halfway over?
It has been a busy 6 months for us at Medford Remodeling! We are so excited to continue sharing our recent project blogs with you each month through this newsletter and on our Facebook page.
This month, we’re featuring a gorgeous kitchen remodel we completed in Burleson, Texas. What a transformation! It’s always fun to look back at the project’s “before” photos, see the visual plans and renderings come together, and then compare the final, completed renovation to the before shots. It never fails to provide us with a sense of pride and satisfaction to see the weeks of hard work put in by our team showcased in the end results.
Home remodeling is a very visual process. Aside from improving functionality, the main reason homeowners want to remodel is to create an updated look and feel of their home’s interior. A big part of our process at Medford Remodeling is to redesign the space with floor plans and 3-D renderings to showcase the visual changes that will be made. We also provide design assistance with our professional interior designer to ensure the right style of fixtures, appliances, and colors are selected. Homeowners love to physically see their renovation come together and witness the grand transformation of their home.
The fireplace often serves as a room’s focal point and is the first thing guests notice upon entering your home. It’s no surprise that fireplace remodels are becoming a more and more popular request among our clients. Not only does this kind of remodel allow you to refresh your home’s look and functionality, but the many styles and finishes available provide a great opportunity to customize your interior and create a one-of-a-kind design!
As a Design Build firm, Medford Remodeling offers complete turnkey service for full-scale remodeling projects. That means we draw new plans and designs, obtain permits from the city, assist you with product selections, order and track your materials, complete the construction, and finish with any required inspections to ensure everything is done correctly and to code. Just as we take care of all the necessary steps involved in a major remodel, we offer the same level of professionalism for smaller renovation projects, such as your fireplace remodel. From start to finish, you can be sure your project will be in good hands!
Choosing to remodel your home is a big decision, and shouldn’t be taken lightly. There is a lot involved – a lot of time, a lot of decisions, and of course, a lot of money! It’s critical that you hire the right remodeler to meet your needs and get the job done correctly. If you take this step for granted and hire the first contractor you meet (or the one the offers you the lowest price), you might be regretting it later on and have to live with the results for years to come. Before you commit completely, you should ask each contractor these important questions:
You don’t have to be experienced with home remodeling to know that it is an expensive ordeal. A lot of time and energy goes into the process, and several hands are involved in completing all the steps that lead to a successful finished product. This is particularly true if you’re working with a design-build firm, in which case there is a large team of professionals working to create your dream space. Unfortunately, even if you choose cheaper materials, fixtures and appliances, the price is not always a significantly less. Sometimes, there are “hidden expenses” that sneak into the total cost of your remodel. While Medford Remodeling provides a detailed Scope of Work document to break down the budget and expose these hidden costs, other contractors may not be so courteous!
There are also added expenses that may stem from your remodeling project which you may not have thought of ahead of time, such as paying for a temporary off-site storage space or frequently purchasing fast food while your kitchen is under construction. Many homeowners do not take these extra expenses into consideration when budgeting for their renovation, and end up surprised when the total cost comes in at 20-30% more than what they were prepared for. It’s a good idea to sit down and make a list of everything you can think of that will contribute to your bottom line before getting started on the project.
Outdoor kitchens and living areas are becoming more and more popular among home owners in North Texas. They are a great way to improve your outdoor space for enjoyment when the weather is mild in the spring and fall, and also act as a great addition alongside a backyard pool when entertaining friends and family throughout the summer.
We have designed multiple outdoor kitchens and living areas and our clients are always satisfied! Here are 10 tips to designing the perfect outdoor kitchen and living area:
