If there is one common complaint we’ve heard from homeowners throughout the years, it is that they struggled to find a contractor that would follow-up after their initial conversation. Unfortunately, homeowners are often forced to deal with the frustration of waiting for an estimate that never comes. If you’ve ever experienced a disappearing contractor or non-responsive home improvement service, you know how infuriating it is to be seemingly forgotten about when you’re trying to get a project done.
Small spaces often get neglected when it comes to remodeling; in reality, small rooms can have the biggest transformations! Our recent clients in Fort Worth had two small bathrooms in lieu of one large master bath. Although the rooms were compact and the floor plans couldn’t change, our designers were able to implement some significant modifications to make both of the bathrooms feel larger, brighter, and more modern. See the final results in our featured project blog for this month!
There are a lot of variables that come into play during a bathroom remodel. The size and state of the existing bathroom, the complexity of the project, the features and amenities to be included, the structural changes that need to be made, and of course, the intended use of the remodeled space by the homeowners – that is, determining what modifications will most effectively solve the homeowner’s current issues with the bathroom. These variables are different for every project: perhaps the existing bathroom is too small and lacks storage space, or maybe it is insufficient for an elderly parent that needs handicap-accessible features. Maybe a remodel was started with a contractor who did things incorrectly and failed to finish the job, leaving the bathroom completely unusable. Because each of these scenarios has a different starting point and requires different courses of action to meet the homeowner’s needs, they each require their own customized design plan.
Staircases are significant structural staples in two-story homes, which can feel a bit overwhelming when it comes to remodeling or reconfiguring them. While some staircase projects are more complex than others, nine times out of ten, they’re just as doable as any other type of renovation. Of course, as with any significant remodel, it’s critical to hire a company that is knowledgeable and experienced with that specific type of project. The Medford Team has been privileged to successfully complete several staircase remodels across Tarrant County over the years, all of which turned out beautifully!
It’s interesting how home remodeling trends change throughout the years. What we have noticed recently is the growing popularity of gray and white color schemes in combination with a streamlined look. This specific trend can really transform a dated, drab kitchen (as seen in many of our past projects!) However, that doesn’t mean it should be the go-to design for all interiors. Based on the homeowner’s taste and the aesthetic of the rest of the house, there are still many instances in which a remodel leans toward the more classic, traditional side. Of course, our team is always happy to accommodate and help bring our client’s dreams to life! Our recent kitchen project in Arlington is a great example of how a traditional design can still have a modern, elegant feel. The finished product is a complete transformation from the original, with a truly timeless aesthetic our clients will appreciate for years. Check out the full story and photos on our featured blog post for the month.
It’s interesting to watch interior design trends change as the years go by. One of the most popular trends we are seeing recently is a more modern aesthetic, typically with shaker-style or slab cabinetry for a streamlined look. These cabinets are often paint-grade with a cool or light color scheme (gray and white is a big favorite!) A quick search on Pinterest or Houzz will provide hundreds of inspiring examples. This aesthetic is certainly beautiful and is the ideal design for many of our clients. However, it is always a welcomed change of pace to get the request for the more classic, traditional vibe – dark wood stain, raised-panel cabinetry, and warm tones. Our recent clients in Arlington, Texas, wanted just that for their long-awaited kitchen renovation.
Adding a room to your home is a great way to create more usable space. Our recent clients in Fort Worth knew they wanted to include a game room addition as a part of their whole house remodel. Luckily, they had a spacious backyard with plenty of room for a detached structure! Check out our featured project blog for the month to see this unique project built from the ground up.
Our recent clients in Fort Worth dreamt of a custom game room addition… and the Medford Team delivered!
Farmhouse-style interiors have become one of the most popular requests among homeowners looking to remodel. Our recent clients in Fort Worth, TX, love the trend and wanted to incorporate it into their kitchen. The real fun was creating a cohesive color scheme that would fit with the rest of the house and still allow the farmhouse style to shine. The result was a beautiful blue-themed kitchen that reflected the client’s fun personality and contributed to a cohesive flow of color throughout the house. Get the full story along with the impressive before and after shots on this month’s project blog post.
Oftentimes, in small-scale renovations, the project evolves into something bigger before it’s all said and done. Such was the case for our recent clients in Arlington, TX. They initially wanted their kitchen to be minimally updated — new paint, tile, and countertops — while keeping the existing cabinets. After a few discussions with our designers, they instead chose to remodel the space in its entirety in order to bring their dream kitchen to life. While it ended up being a larger project than they initially planned, the final result provided what they really wanted, and they couldn’t be happier with it! See the whole story in our featured project blog for this month.
It’s common for homeowners to come to us with the idea of a small remodel – “cosmetic” updates such as new paint, tile, or countertops. This is a great option if you’re not changing the layout or moving major components of the space. Sometimes, however, our clients find that these minor updates don’t quite get them what they want. In such scenarios, the project can shift from a small project to a large-scale, full-gut renovation. Our recent clients in Arlington, Texas, are a great example of how this can occur, and that it is totally doable with the help of our design-build team!
