Medford Design-Build: The Value of a Solid Reputation


Photo Source

The decision to remodel can be a very exciting time for a homeowner, particularly if it is something that has been anticipated for several years. It’s easy to jump in and hire the first company you run across that seems professional. Unfortunately, there are a lot of so-called “professionals” out there that don’t operate with integrity or honesty in mind, despite making a great first impression. Trust us, we’ve seen enough home renovation nightmares to know that it’s not something to rush into blindly! It’s essential to take your time and really research a company before signing on the dotted line. The best advice we can give to a homeowner considering a remodel is to hire a company with a consistent reputation. Read more

A Serene Lakeside Kitchen in Arlington, TX

Our recent clients have a gorgeous home just off the lake in Arlington, TX. Many updates had already been made throughout the original 1978 build when the clients initially came to us, and the kitchen was one of the last items on their list to remodel. They knew the space needed a more modern aesthetic to match the rest of the house and the stunning view of the lake from the large breakfast nook windows.

Because the layout wasn’t going to change, it was important that the functional and aesthetic modifications were impactful. Custom cabinetry, new backsplash tile, countertops, and updated stainless steel appliances were a few of the items discussed early on. Along with keeping the butcher block countertop on the island, the clients also wanted to keep the existing stainless steel back panel and vent hood with the gas range, which was noted in the designs. Our team began working on the design package to showcase these changes and detail the scope of work required for completion. Read more

A Stunning Laundry Room / Mudroom Swap in Keller

Do you have two rooms in your home that just seem like they should be swapped? Our recent clients in Keller, Texas, have a beautiful home that was built in 2002. The original laundry room came directly off the garage and was very small, creating a bottleneck of thru traffic. The room also lacked counter space and sufficient storage. Neighboring this tiny laundry room was a much larger room that the previous owner had used as a music room for her piano. Because the clients have two young children, this room became a playroom and makeshift mudroom to store shoes, jackets, and miscellaneous items. From the time the clients moved into the home 4 years ago, they both felt that it made more sense for the larger room to be the laundry room, leaving the smaller room off the garage as a mudroom. They came to us with their issue and the idea of swapping the spaces, and our designers got to work conceptualizing the new floor plan. See the full story in our blog post. Read more

The Whole House Design Process

A whole house remodel is a great option for homeowners that are ready to refresh their entire home in one project. This can include renovating all bathrooms, the kitchen, the fireplace, the windows, interior and exterior doors, paint and trim, flooring, lighting, and more. With the current boom in the housing market, it is becoming increasingly difficult to purchase a house due to the number of buyers vs sellers. Homeowners are opting to invest their money into their existing home by remodeling instead of moving. Not only can this option modify your home’s functionality to better meet your needs, but remodeling can also make your home feel like new – you’d be surprised at the possibilities when it comes to redesigning! If your home could use a significant facelift in more than one area, a whole house design package might be an option worth considering. Read more

A Craftsman-Style Door Replacement in Arlington

Medford Remodeling has long been associated with luxury remodeling and large-scale renovations. However, that’s not all we do! Our small projects division, Mike’s Guys, handles smaller projects such as repairs, maintenance, and pull-and-replace remodels. They also address various exterior projects, like siding repairs, exterior painting, and window and door replacements.

This client’s West Arlington home was built in 1994 and had the original front door intact. While the existing door was functional, the homeowners wanted to replace it with a more modern unit for an updated aesthetic. They chose a Craftsman-style Masonite unit with side lites. The scope of work involved removing the existing door, trim, and frame, and installing the new ones, followed by painting the inside and outside. Read more

The Medford Team Has Grown!

The Medford Team recently got a new team photo, including all of our newer team members! In case you haven’t had the chance to meet everyone, we’d like to take a minute to re-introduce the individuals that make Medford Remodeling the company it is today.

Our last team photo was taken in 2017. We are grateful to say that business has continued to come in and steadily increase since that time. To assist with our expanding client base, we have added 5 full-time employees over the last 4 years – each of them contributing a unique skillset and allowing us to provide optimum service as a whole. If there’s one thing (among the many things!) we take pride in, it’s the level of integrity, ownership, and dedication that each individual puts forth, clearly reflected in the quality of work associated with the Medford name. To say each team member is invaluable would be a great understatement, as we need one another to succeed! Read more

A 1961 Guest Bathroom Gets a New Personality

After renovating our Arlington client’s kitchen a few years ago, she recently reached out to us to tackle another home remodeling project – her guest bathroom. Our team was elated to hear from her again, and we couldn’t wait to get started!

As a ‘pull-and-replace’ project, changing the layout to improve the functionality of the room was not a concern. The emphasis was instead on replacing the dated features with new ones in the exact same location. These features included the bathtub, faucets, cabinets, countertop, mirror, and decorative lighting. With these updates, the bathroom would feel brand new, but keep the same layout and square footage it always had. Read more

1999 Kitchen Gets a Modern Refresh

Our recent clients in Grand Prairie, Texas, had a lovely home built in 1999. The kitchen wasn’t in terrible shape, but the clients knew it was time to refresh the look and also make some modifications to improve functionality. Luckily, the size and layout were great, so not much needed to be done structurally to the existing footprint.

A very popular trend in kitchen design right now is two-tone cabinetry: when the upper cabinets and lower cabinets are different colors or stains. Our clients loved this idea and shared some inspiration photos showing a mixture of stained wood cabinets, white paint, and dark countertops. They also loved the high-end look of glass front accent cabinets, open shelving, and shaker-style cabinet doors. Read more
