6 Reasons to do Home Improvement Projects in the Winter

Many homeowners don’t consider winter as a good time to get home repairs and improvement projects done. Understandably so, as the busy holiday season can be a hectic time for everyone (not to mention the cold, wet weather that comes along with it!). However, the winter can be an ideal time to complete those projects you’ve been sitting on. Not convinced?  Here are 6 reasons winter is the best time to do home improvement projects:

1. Contractor Availability: Because most people do not invest in major home projects during the winter, contractors have increased availability during this time, making it more convenient for you to schedule a time to meet with them. This also provides for a quicker timeline for your project to be completed, unlike during the busy spring or summer when scheduling construction may be pushed out several weeks, or months! This is particularly true for smaller projects that you’d like to get done before the holiday guests arrive. Even if you cannot squeeze the project in before the holidays, there are often openings in contractors’ schedules at the beginning of the year, right after the holidays, when many homeowners are still off work.

Our November 2022 Newsletter

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! Read more

Our October 2022 Newsletter

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. Read more

Is Your Home Remodel A Design-Build or A Small Project?

Over the years, Medford Remodeling has grown as a company in many ways, resulting in an evolution of our process and services. With the ultimate goal of providing a seamless experience to our clients, we have recently developed two different options for completing a home renovation: as a design-build project or as a small project. Each option has its benefits, based on the complexity and specifications of your unique remodel. Because we have received a few questions on the subject, we wanted to post a quick blog explaining these options and help you understand which is the best fit for you! Read more

A New Take On A Traditional-Style Kitchen

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. See the full story on our blog post. Read more

Mike’s Guys: A Polished Kitchen Refresh in Arlington

If you have kept up with our Small Projects Division, Mike’s Guys, you know that a big part of what they address involves kitchen and bathroom updates that are not large-scale remodels. These projects don’t require design packages; no floor plans or renderings to be drawn. All major components of the space remain in the same location and may or may not include minor modifications. A great example is this small kitchen update our Mike’s Guys team recently completed in Arlington, Texas. Read more

From Concept to Completion: How Our Design-Build Process Simplifies Your Remodeling Project

If you’ve been considering a major home remodel, you have likely already done a bit of research about what the process entails — it can certainly feel overwhelming to realize all the moving parts that need to come together in order to achieve a flawless finish. The many professionals that are necessary include an architect, a designer, and an engineer to create a design, followed by a general contractor to build it (or the long list of subcontractors you’d have to seek out yourself if you choose that route!) That is a lot of relationships to develop, individuals to trust, and various schedules to coordinate, all while ensuring things are being done correctly. Needless to say, there is plenty of room for error! Read more

Our August 2022 Newsletter

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.
