Whole House Remodel Part 3: The Master Bathroom & Closet

If you’ve been following along with our 4-part blog series featuring our recent whole house remodel, you’ve likely already seen the posts detailing the renovations of the kitchen and living spaces. In this post, we’ll be sharing the grand reveal of the show-stopping master bathroom and glamorous walk-in closet!

Much like the kitchen and living spaces, the original master bathroom had good bones, so it didn’t require a lot of structural changes. It was open and spacious with a large bathtub, corner shower, toilet room, and two vanities. It also included separate “his & hers” closets. Unfortunately, as many positives as there were for this bathroom, it was still very out of date. The goal of our designers was to refresh the aesthetic of the bathroom with a clean, modern look and streamline the features to really take advantage of all this bathroom had to offer. Read more

How Much Will My Home Remodel Cost?

The first and most important question you should answer before starting any type of home remodel is how much it will realistically cost. Typically, there isn’t a straight-forward answer to that question without scheduling an on-site consultation and paying for a detailed estimate and design. Because no two projects and no two homeowners are the same, the total cost of your project will depend on multiple variables. This means that even if your neighbor a few houses down has the exact same floor plan as you, built in the same year, your total cost could come in more or less than theirs simply based on your unique scope of work. You also must consider the level of remodeling you intend to do – whether it is a full-gut project that involves moving walls and rearranging the original footprint, or if you just want to update the space you have with new paint, tile, counters, etc. The types of materials, finishes, hardware, and appliances you choose also impacts the final price. For example, two homeowners with the same kitchen layout will have different totals if one chooses standard elements, such as a basic undermount sink and chrome faucet, and the other chooses high-end elements, such as a farmhouse-style sink with a brushed gold faucet. Of course, everyone wants the more expensive options often featured on HGTV renovation shows. Unfortunately, these shows tend to create unrealistic expectations regarding the actual costs, timelines, and processes involved in home remodeling. Read more

Whole House Remodel Part 2: Refreshing the Living Spaces

If you follow Medford Design-Build on Facebook or subscribe to our e-newsletter, you know that we recently completed a whole house remodel in a 1970’s home in Arlington, Texas. We posted the first blog in our 4-part series for this project last month, starting with the kitchen. This month, we’re excited to share the beautiful updates we completed in the living spaces!

In many of the homes we remodel today, an open-concept floor plan is the end goal. The kitchen is either already open to the living room, or it is in our remodeling plans to remove walls, resulting in one large, open space. In either instance, it’s important to have consistent flooring and paint colors to create a flowing, cohesive feel. For this particular home, the original floorplan of the kitchen and surrounding living spaces provided the most usable space in regard to countertops and cabinetry. The home had really good bones, so the decision was made to leave the existing walls where they were and just update the aesthetic of the living spaces instead, keeping in mind the concept of a consistent theme throughout.

Wall Removal: 4 Things to Know

Open-concept floor plans have become one of the most sought-after features among home buyers and homeowners alike. As a remodeling company, the majority of the projects we do involve some extent of removing or shortening walls to create a more open, airy overall feel. Among the many before and after transformations we share, the ones that include a wall removal are by far the most impressive. It’s amazing how different a space can look and how much better the area can be utilized once unnecessary walls have been removed! Read more

An Upstairs Bonus Room Transformed into a Useful Home Office & Loft

Our recent clients wanted to update their 1980’s Southlake home to better meet their needs. As it was, they used a small guest bedroom as their home office – a very crowded room that lacked the storage space and functionality needed for an individual that works from home. Unfortunately, this is often the case for homeowners that have a makeshift workspace. Luckily, these clients had a large upstairs bonus room that was not in use – the perfect area to be converted into a spacious home office! Read more

Medford Design-Build Awarded Best of Houzz 2019!

If you’ve worked with Medford Design-Build in the past or if you’re familiar with our process, you know that the design aspect of home remodeling is at the very core of what we do. It is one of the first things we discuss upon our initial meeting with you and it continues as the primary guideline throughout the entirety of your project. From our custom design packages to the interior design services we include in your remodel, we believe it is critical that the design portion of your project is thoroughly and successfully executed. The design is not only the foundation on which we base your project, but it is also what makes your remodel unique, custom, and truly one-of-a-kind! That being said, it’s important that we have a clear understanding of your wants and expectations regarding the outcome of your home remodel. Read more

A Carpenter’s Own Kitchen

This project is a little different than our usual ones; there are no original floor plans, 3-D renderings for us to show, or backstory of the clients needing a larger floor plan or more storage. This kitchen remodel is the work of our very own Project Manager, Dave Broadfield, which he completed in his own home, on his own time, after hours of working in our client’s homes each day! We are blown away at his dedication and hard work to get this done without the assistance of our design team. The beautiful final result shows just how talented he is and the amount of detail he puts into his work. Read more

A Stunning 90’s Kitchen Transformation

Our recent Southlake clients absolutely love hosting get-togethers with friends and family in their beautiful 1990’s home. Unfortunately, the original floor plan just wasn’t accommodating for their average crowd of 15-20 guests. With the holidays quickly approaching, they diligently searched for a commendable contractor that could assist with both the aesthetic appeal and the functional design of their kitchen, formal dining room, formal living room, and breakfast area. After being referred to us by a few different people and reading many positive reviews, they reached out to Medford Design-Build to set up an in-home consultation. Read more
