The laundry room is an important functional space in the home. Often times, it is set up poorly and lacks storage space, counters, and good lighting. This was exactly the problem faced by our recent clients in Arlington, Texas. Their original laundry room was a good size, but the lack of counter space inhibited organization and resulted in random laundry baskets and clothes piled on the floor. Our designers were able to resolve this problem by reworking the space and adding ample cabinetry, pull-out laundry bins, large countertops, clothes racks, and more!

8 Ways to Save Energy this Fall & Winter: Our October 2016 Newsletter

 

Cooler temperatures outside means it’s time to heat the inside, which could result in a higher electricity bill. Here are some tips to help you keep your home warm and your bills low this fall and winter:

1. Take Advantage of Natural Heat
Opening curtains on your south-facing windows during the day is a great way to cut your energy costs by warming your home naturally.

2. Cover Drafty Windows
Add an extra layer to drafty windows by using a heavy-duty plastic sheet or taping clear plastic film to the inside of your window frames. Make sure the plastic is sealed tightly to the frame to help reduce infiltration of cold air. A simpler option is to close your blinds and pull your curtains shut, which provides the same result.

Can you believe it’s already September!? This year has flown by, and cooler, wetter months are on the horizon!

Kitchen Lighting Solutions: Our June 2016 Newsletter

 Lighting Solutions for an Upgraded Look


 

Updating the lighting in your kitchen is a small change that can make a huge impact! Whether you are planning a full remodel, a partial remodel, or just want to improve your existing kitchen, investing in new lighting can truly transform the space. Here are a few lighting options worth considering:

 
 

Can Lights

For nearly all of our kitchen remodels, we include a can light package which consists of strategically placed can lights that work in conjunction with under cabinet lighting to produce a “shadow-less environment.” Because of the placement of the lights, no shadows are created, which is safer and ideal for
cooking and meal prep in the kitchen. Read more

Prep Your Home for Spring Storms! Our May 2016 Newsletter

Is your home ready for spring storms?

 
 

It’s spring time, and in Texas, that means one thing: spring storms! Our local Tarrant County, along with the majority of North Texas, has already experienced nature’s wrath this season — some with tornadoes, hail, flash floods, and damaging winds.

 
 

Unfortunately, there is no way to control the weather, but here are some tips to help you prepare for and safely endure Mother Nature’s fury:

 
 

Identify any existing roof or siding problems. Inspect your roof for missing shingles and possible leaks and do any repair work if necessary. Loose siding should also be repaired, as it can rip off easily in heavy winds. Read more

Get Your FREE Patio Cover Design Package! Our April 2016 Newsletter

Happy April from Medford Remodeling!

This time of year in Texas offers beautiful, sunny days, but the warming temperatures of the season also mean spring showers and thunderstorms are on the way! These changing weather patterns make it hard to enjoy the outdoors if your home is lacking necessary features. Patio covers are a great solution, providing a sheltered outdoor space for when it rains and a cool, covered area for when it’s sunny and hot.

Patio covers are a common request from our clients during the spring season and all the way through the summer. Many of them are initially interested in arbors or pergolas, but we usually advise them to steer clear of these types of structures and go with a full patio cover instead. The reasons are many: Read more
