The decision to remodel can be a very exciting time for a homeowner, particularly if it is something that has been anticipated for several years. It’s easy to jump in and hire the first company you run across that seems professional. Unfortunately, there are a lot of so-called “professionals” out there that don’t operate with integrity or honesty in mind, despite making a great first impression. Trust us, we’ve seen enough home renovation nightmares to know that it’s not something to rush into blindly! It’s essential to take your time and really research a company before signing on the dotted line. The best advice we can give to a homeowner considering a remodel is to hire a company with a consistent reputation.
Our project spotlight this month is a stunning lakeside kitchen remodel we completed in Arlington, TX. Our client’s beautiful 1970’s home had been updated throughout, with the kitchen being one of the last spaces that needed refreshing. Because the original layout wasn’t going to change, it was very important that the features included were impactful in regard to functionality and aesthetic. Both our clients and our team are thrilled with the finished product! See the full story and the transformation photos in our blog post.
Do you have a space that would make more sense with a different layout, or swapped with another room in your home? Such was the case for our recent clients in Keller, TX. Their existing laundry room was in a small, crowded room just off the garage, which made it difficult to use the washer and dryer without being in the way of the door. From the time they purchased the home several years ago, they thought it would be much more functional to have the laundry room in place of the larger mudroom/playroom that was just on the other side of the wall. Turns out, they were absolutely right! Our team was able to help them swap these two spaces, resulting in more functional, usable rooms. Take a look at the blog post to see the transformation!
Our project spotlight this month features our recent 1978 kitchen renovation in South Arlington. Our clients had long-awaited updating this space and knew just what they wanted in regard to colors and style. One thing they hadn’t considered was removing a large walk-in pantry and an unused bar area. This modification not only made the kitchen more spacious but also created additional countertop and storage space that they didn’t know they needed. The finished project looks just as our designers drew it in the floor plans and 3D renderings — a modern, trendy kitchen to match the rest of the client’s lovely home! Get the full story and the before and after photos on our blog.
Our project spotlight this month features the dining room of a whole-house remodel we recently completed in Fort Worth. The space was a central part of the home and was visible across the living room upon entering the front door. It was important to the clients that this room was open to the living room, creating an open-concept floor plan and allowing the natural light from it’s large window to brighten the neighboring rooms. While there weren’t a lot of structural changes made, the updated dining room is absolutely stunning and just what the clients had in mind! Check out the details in our blog post!
Aside from wanting to see detailed floor plans and 3D renderings, there is one primary reason homeowners choose to purchase our custom design package for their major remodel: to receive an all-inclusive price quote for their unique project. The Scope of Work document we provide as a part of your design package allows you to see exactly what is included – everything from foundation work to framing, to plumbing, electrical, and so on — and the total cost of everything as installed by the Medford Team. Your total project cost includes installation, materials, and labor, plus the total cost of your Budget Items. This bottom-line number is your total project cost. Since your Budget Items are the portion you as the homeowner get to control, we’d like to discuss them a bit further:

Our team came up with customized solutions for each issue, proving that the space had all the potential to be exactly what the clients wanted.

Our featured project this month is a stunning Jack & Jill bathroom renovation our team completed in Southlake, Texas. Our kind clients initially came to us with a good idea of how they’d like to update their high school daughter’s bathroom. Our talented designers met with them and were able to translate their ideas into detailed 3D renderings. The completed remodel looks just like the renderings and achieved the modern, sophisticated aesthetic the daughter envisioned. Check out the full project on our blog!
