The right patterned wallpaper has the potential to make a show-stopping statement; unfortunately, that isn’t always the case with an original wallpaper from 1975! Our recent clients in Arlington wanted to remodel their dated master bathroom, which featured, you guessed it, floor-to-ceiling patterned wallpaper. They imagined a more modern look, with sleek tile, LED can lighting, a large walk-in shower, and a streamlined aesthetic. Our team was able to create a modern design, including everything the clients hoped for and more! Check out the transformation

The Medford Team Has Grown!

The Medford Team recently got a new team photo, including all of our newer team members! In case you haven’t had the chance to meet everyone, we’d like to take a minute to re-introduce the individuals that make Medford Remodeling the company it is today.

Our last team photo was taken in 2017. We are grateful to say that business has continued to come in and steadily increase since that time. To assist with our expanding client base, we have added 5 full-time employees over the last 4 years – each of them contributing a unique skillset and allowing us to provide optimum service as a whole. If there’s one thing (among the many things!) we take pride in, it’s the level of integrity, ownership, and dedication that each individual puts forth, clearly reflected in the quality of work associated with the Medford name. To say each team member is invaluable would be a great understatement, as we need one another to succeed! Read more

3 Red Flags of “Affordable” Remodeling

With all the beautiful interiors seen on TV shows, featured in home design magazines, and posted across Pinterest and other social media platforms, it’s no wonder home remodeling is such a hot topic among today’s homeowners. Honestly, who wouldn’t want their house to look like Chip and Joanna’s?!

Odds are, if you’re really committed to the idea of remodeling your home, you’ve probably already looked into the process and maybe have even met with a few contractors to for estimates. While it can be tempting to go all-in with the first contractor that offers you an affordable quote, the old cliché “you get what you pay for” is important to keep in mind. It’s a sad reality that many clients come to us after being ripped-off or left high-and-dry by another contractor who made them an offer they couldn’t refuse. Prices might vary somewhat between remodeling contractors, but if someone quotes you a price that is thousands of dollars less than the others, it’s likely too good to be true! Read more

Our June 2021 Newsletter

Our recent guest bathroom remodel in Arlington was a little different than our typical design-build projects: due to the existing layout and constraints of the floorplan, the emphasis was more on the aesthetics of the room than on improving the functionality. As a ‘pull-and-replace’ project, the renovation involved replacing dated features with new ones in the exact same location. These features included the bathtub, faucets, cabinets, countertop, mirror, and decorative lighting. Check out the full blog post to see the before shots and the beautiful finished look! Read more

In today’s tech-savvy society, just about everything is done online. You can order almost anything you can imagine, and have it delivered directly to you in as little as two days! You can order your groceries for the week, pay online, and have them dropped off at your doorstep without talking to anyone or changing from your bathrobe. Whether we realize it or not, the convenience of ordering products and services online is influencing the way we think and the way we shop. This generation has become shockingly accustomed to making rash decisions and receiving quick service. And, if you don’t like your purchase? Send it back and buy something else with just a few clicks on your phone or computer. The quicker the transaction and the least amount of human interaction, the better. This might sound like an incredible convenience when you’re browsing the web, but this mindset can be dangerous when you’re considering larger investments – like a home remodel. Read more

A 1961 Guest Bathroom Gets a New Personality

After renovating our Arlington client’s kitchen a few years ago, she recently reached out to us to tackle another home remodeling project – her guest bathroom. Our team was elated to hear from her again, and we couldn’t wait to get started!

As a ‘pull-and-replace’ project, changing the layout to improve the functionality of the room was not a concern. The emphasis was instead on replacing the dated features with new ones in the exact same location. These features included the bathtub, faucets, cabinets, countertop, mirror, and decorative lighting. With these updates, the bathroom would feel brand new, but keep the same layout and square footage it always had. Read more

Remodeling for Elderly Parents: 5 Age-in-Place Options to Consider

There are many reasons homeowners choose to remodel, from updating aesthetics, to improving functionality, to increasing resale value.

Our team was able to identify the changes that could be made to improve storage, functionality, and overall aesthetic. The finished renovation is exactly what our client had in mind!

What are ‘Budget Items’ in Regard to My Home Remodel?

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.
