5 Benefits of Working with A Design-Build Firm for Your Major Remodel

The term ‘design-build’ is slowly becoming more familiar in the world of home remodeling. In the past, if someone wanted to remodel their home, they would contact a general contractor and an architect. While contractors alone can do a lot of great work, they simply do not offer the many benefits that you would receive from working with a design-build firm, such as Medford Design-Build.

Here are 5 benefits of working with a design-build for your major home remodeling project: Read more

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

Our December 2019 Newsletter

December 16, 2019

Our featured project this month is a little different than our usual remodels — it’s in a home that is only 3 years old! While the majority of our projects are completed in homes that are 20 years old or more, this project is proof that new homes need remodeling, too! Our client’s existing bathroom included a spacious walk-in shower, but lacked the spa-like features and free-standing bathtub she always wanted. Although there was a lack of space, our team was able to convert the large shower into a wet room, providing a space for the bathtub and an upgraded shower.

6 Small Home Projects to Plan for in 2020

If you haven’t done much upkeep in your home for several years, it might feel overwhelming to know where to start. Aside from a major, full-gut remodel in a kitchen or bathroom, there are many smaller projects that can be completed to contribute to a more modern look overall.

Aesthetically speaking, minor upgrades here and there can really make a big impact in your home as a whole as time goes by. One way to go about this is to choose a handful of small projects to complete independently throughout the year, resulting in a beautifully updated home over time. For example, refreshing the interior paint in the spring and replacing dated carpet with a solid-surface flooring in the fall can provide for a modern, updated look come holiday season. It may not be realistic for you to do everything at once, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with tackling small projects individually to slowly transform your dated home! Read more

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

Either situation can be difficult, as making provisions for elderly parents can be stressful and emotional. Our goal in assisting with age-in-place remodeling is to simplify the process for both the clients and their parents to make for the best experience possible! Read more

A 50-Year-Old Kitchen Gets a Stunning Upgrade

A lot can change in 50 years, especially when you compare dated homes to the modern aesthetic seen in today’s new builds. Low-hanging soffits have been replaced with sky-high ceilings; cabinets are taller and more uniform with hidden interior hinges; singular box lights have been phased out with sleek recessed can lights; even things like faucets, hardware, and decorative light fixtures have evolved over the years to become the popular styles we see today.

As trends and styles continue to change, not updating your home for literal decades can result in a home that needs a complete overhaul. Such was the case for our recent 1961 kitchen remodel in Arlington, Texas. Read more
