Cool Remodel Trend - Floating Fixtures

Example of a floating vanity

This look is likely going to be around for a long time. It is an attractive  practical application for the modern bathroom. Wall mounted fixtures can make any room look larger which is most appreciated in a tiny bathroom.

Some of the other advantages are:

  • Floors are easier to clean without anything blocking your mop!
  • The streamlined look can help show off other features such as a stunning soaking tub.
  • More room for radiant-heat flooring to get the most out of your choice for heating your bathroom.
  • Allows interesting decorating techniques such as extending your tile to the floor and under the fixture for a seamless look.
  • Some put the extra room under a vanity for a child's step stool or to keep an extra towel handy.
  • Once you decide this is for you give us a call and we will help you make it happen!

Simple Curb Appeal

Room painted Ultra Violet Color of the year 2018

Curb appeal is not overrated. A good looking home and front yard makes you happy every time you come home, is a friendly greeting for your friends and neighbors and adds value to your investment.

Three quick "fixes" we can help you with to improve your curb appeal are: a new front and garage door and a garage door opener. We can do them in a variety of materials and finishes. This is a good time to consider adding some security features with new locks and cameras.

Some quick "fixes" you can do yourself are: install a new mailbox, new street numbers on the house and/or painted on the curb, and freshen up your flower beds/boxes.

We can help you with some simple curb appeal upgrades. Call me for a consultation today. (Phone: 707-257-2222)

Don't Paint Me Into A Corner

Room painted Ultra Violet Color of the year 2018

So, you read that Ultra Violet is the Pantone paint color of the year for 2018 but is it for you? Will you still love it in a week, a year? Only you and time will tell.

The image to the left for this monthly blog is also a link to an article you might want to check out on mistakes people make when choosing paint color. Very often trending colors are the ones people regret. Using a color as an accent might be the solution, you get a splash of color and it is easy to change.

Our painters are happy to help you with color choices but in the end, it is your decision. A vibrant color like this one might be just the thing. If you decide it’s not a long-term favorite, no harm done! We can easily repaint!

Let's get you on our schedule for a consultation today. (Phone: 707-257-2222)

Caught Short?

Alpine Construction Crew working on a fence job

Are you like Tim in the TV show Tool Time, having a daily chat with your neighbor over the fence? Or do you  require more privacy than that?

A common solution to a short fence is adding a fence topper to get the extra height. These toppers can be fairly open, as the one pictured here, that we did for a local customer or more solid for even more privacy. The key is to decide what your end goal is and then look at your options for color and style.

Materials come in a variety to please everyone. We can match your current fence or use a contrasting product to add texture and interest.

For a solution to a "too short" fence or a new fence from the ground up give us a call (Phone: 707-257-2222) for an estimate appointment today.

Are you thinking about that master bedroom/bathroom suite you have always wanted? Or maybe you would like a great family room where everyone can kick back and have fun? It is easier than you think.

Several things are imperative when you add on to an existing home. You want your remodel done in such a way to add value. That means designing the addition, so it looks like it is part of the home not just "stuck on". Also having proper permits so you will not have to remove it when you sell the home.

Some easy steps we can help with:

  1. Explore Your Options
  2. Is it a room addition or a remodel that is needed?
  3. Plan Your Build
  4. Are you "bumping" out or up?
  5. Choose Your Materials
  6. This is key to making the addition blend in with your present home
  7. Get the Project Done.
  8. Hire a crew like ours who will respect your living space while adding on more!

Our crew can help you through every step of the way.

2018 Kitchen Trends

Inage of a Kitchen Remodel without upper cabinets

Home remodeling trends for the new year are bringing back some tried and true traditional favorites for the kitchen.

One of the most popular rooms in a home to get a makeover is still the kitchen. The minimal look with fewer upper cabinets is one trend in particular that seems to be here to stay. Borrowed from the farm house - the modern kitchen is looking great with effective use of shelving instead of upper cabinets and deep drawers in lower cabinets for your dishes and pans.

We see a lot of white kitchens with just a pop of color allowing a home owner to get a clean crisp look. On the flip side, we see just as many who want color, and lots of it. Cabinets are getting painted and new hardware for a quick inexpensive facelift.

Our staff can set up an appointment to review your options for that great new kitchen. Give us a call at 707-257-2222 to make an appointment for an estimate on what can be done to get your kitchen updated for 2018.
