Blue Beauty: A Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel in Fort Worth

With neutral grays and whites being the popular choice for many home remodeling projects today, it is both refreshing and exciting when clients come to us with a different color scheme in mind. For our recent clients in Fort Worth, they knew they wanted to incorporate blue and gray into their new kitchen from the very beginning. This color combination made sense for this project because these colors were being used throughout the rest of the house, which we also had the pleasure of remodeling. Continuing a specific style and color palette throughout the entire home can really tie the design together and create a sense of harmony and consistency. This was just the type of refresh the clients were hoping for! Read more

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. 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: Read more

Hello, Extra Storage Space! A Beautiful Attic-to-Closet Conversion

Whether the project is a room addition, a kitchen remodel, a master suite refresh, or another type of home renovation, it seems that nearly all our clients have at least one common goal: to increase storage space! Ample storage is a coveted feature for today’s homeowners. No matter how many cabinets, drawers, shelves, and closets there are, there is always a need for more. Our recent clients in Aledo, TX, initially came to us for cosmetic updates throughout their house: flooring, painting, trim, lighting, etc. Once these smaller updates were underway by our small projects division, Mike’s Guys, our clients mentioned to us that they were considering enclosing part of their unused attic space to create an additional storage closet with access from the upstairs hallway. Our Design-Build division was happy to assist with this project and drew up a custom design package for the new project. Read more

A 1970’s Master Bathroom Makeover

 
 

 
 
Have you ever seen a dated kitchen or bathroom and thought “WHAT was the builder thinking?!” Such was the case in our recent Arlington remodel (and, unfortunately, in most homes that have been around for a while!) Everyone knows that aesthetic design changes over the years, however, it’s not always just the look that needs updating. Style trends come and go, but poor functionality is something that cannot be overlooked. For our clients, their master bathroom didn’t only look dated, but the poor use of space and limited functionality was a struggle they dealt with daily. They came to us with a complete remodel in mind (and when we say complete, we mean that even the plumbing deep below the floor was taken up and replaced!) Knowing it was going to be a massive undertaking, they sought a company that could help with both design and construction services. Our design team was able to redesign the entire room with floor plans and detailed renderings, followed by our talented crew of craftsmen that completed every phase of construction to install the remodel. What a great experience for us all, and what a transformation for this bathroom!

Whether you’re embarking on a major remodel or simply completing some minor updates throughout the house, just about every home project has its fair share of struggles. We all tend to have the mindset that renovations are pretty straightforward and can be completed in as little as a week or two (maybe it’s all that  HGTV that makes it seem so much easier than it really is!) The reality is that even the simplest home projects often turn out to be more complicated than initially expected. It’s usually at the point of no return when you realize it’s not going to be the piece of cake you had hoped for. This can certainly be a humbling experience; to realize you’re going to need some help to get the job done right (we’ve all been there!)
 
 
If your home is past due for a face-lift and you’re ready to get serious about remodeling, consider these 5 hidden ways you might sabotage your own remodel, and how to avoid making it harder than it has to be:

An Open & Airy Guest Bath Suited for Two

 
 

 
 
Guest bathroom remodels are frequently among the top items on our client’s wish lists. It might not seem as important as the kitchen or the master bathroom, but when you consider that the guest bathroom is what all of your guests use upon visiting your home, you can’t help but want it to look nice. On top of aesthetic appeal, you also want the space to be functional. In many cases, the homes that we remodel are at least 20-30 years old, and the bathrooms are not only outdated, but also have plumbing issues, poor lighting, broken or missing tile, and eroded fixtures – not ideal for guests or prolonged visitors! Our recent clients in Arlington, Texas had similar issues and chose to include the guest bathroom remodel with some other projects we were completing throughout their home.

20 Aging-in-Place Features to Consider for Your Home Remodel

Aging-in-place design, also called barrier-free or universal design, means making updates to an interior to create a safe and accessible environment for everyone, including those that are aging, may be disabled or need the assistance of a walker or wheelchair.
 

 
When we think of this kind of design, the first things that come to mind are ramps, grab bars, or chair lifts – features that might seem extreme, out of the ordinary, or specific to older or disable individuals. However, this isn’t always the case. In fact, many universal design features are not unusual requests among homeowners. Wider doors and hallways, for example, are common remodeling requests that make a home feel more spacious and can also benefit those that need universal or barrier-free designs.

A Beautiful Sunroom & Atrium Addition

 
Sunroom additions are one of our very favorite projects to design and build! These rooms always turn out beautifully, with large windows and lots of natural light. They are great for homeowners that want to enjoy nature all year round, without having to worry about the weather or outdoor temperatures. Another perk of having a sunroom is that it’s such a functional, multi-purpose space. It can be used for just about anything – a home gym, a playroom for kids, a study or home office, or even an extra space to set up a table if you’re hosting a holiday dinner!
 
 
Our recent clients loved the idea of having such a flexible, usable area that could meet so many of their needs throughout the year. They met with our team to discuss what they had in mind and the designing process began.
