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.

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

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

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. Read more

Our July 2022 Newsletter

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. Read more

Our project spotlight this month is a stunning lakeside kitchen remodel we completed in Arlington, TX. Our client’s beautiful 1970’s home had been updated throughout, with the kitchen being one of the last spaces that needed refreshing. Because the original layout wasn’t going to change, it was very important that the features included were impactful in regard to functionality and aesthetic. Both our clients and our team are thrilled with the finished product! See the full story and the transformation photos in our blog post. Read more

Do you have a space that would make more sense with a different layout, or swapped with another room in your home? Such was the case for our recent clients in Keller, TX. Their existing laundry room was in a small, crowded room just off the garage, which made it difficult to use the washer and dryer without being in the way of the door. From the time they purchased the home several years ago, they thought it would be much more functional to have the laundry room in place of the larger mudroom/playroom that was just on the other side of the wall. Turns out, they were absolutely right! Our team was able to help them swap these two spaces, resulting in more functional, usable rooms. Take a look at the blog post to see the transformation!

Cabinet Door Options for Your Kitchen Remodel

Any complete kitchen remodel involves removing and replacing the cabinetry. Because cabinets make such an impact on the overall appearance of the kitchen, it’s important to consider what door style options are available to best suit your home and your personal taste. Cabinet installation is a custom job that is done onsite, so it’s a very involved process and certainly isn’t cheap. You want to make sure you are completely happy with your choice before you finalize the designs and give the green light to start construction! One of the benefits of our custom design packages is that the 3-D renderings allow you to see precisely how your cabinets will look once the remodel is complete. Our team then works closely with our custom cabinet company, Bailey Cabinets, to ensure the design is installed correctly. Read more
