Notes from a Remodeling & General Contractor for the Wichita, KS Area
We’ve talked about how to choose a reputable and trustworthy remodeling contractor and the benefits of working with a single contractor for remodeling projects. But where can you find ideas or help designing your dream kitchen, bathroom or adding a bar/entertainment addition?
Ideas from HGTV, Pinterest, or any number of home sites is a good place to see what is possible, but ultimately you will need a remodeling contractor to bring it all together in a cohesive design that fits your needs, budget, and home. During our 20 years of remodeling homes, bathrooms, and kitchens in the Wichita, KS area, two areas we feel that are overlooked are the home’s exterior (roof, siding, etc.) and the unique beauty/functionality that custom woodwork can bring to a home.
A Home’s Exterior Can Be Remodeled Too!
We don’t often think about the exterior of our home as a remodeling project but at some point a home will need work done on its roof or siding. That is the perfect time to give the outside of your home a new look.
For roofing, we previously put together a resource guide with helpful links to glossaries, web & iPad applications, and other homeowner tips. But one of the tools we like is Dream Designer, an exterior design software for tablets and web browsers. It helps you envision your home’s dream exterior including siding, roofing, windows, etc. That helps both you and the contractor visualize your ideas together.
Remodeling with Custom Woodwork & Cabinets Allows a Truly Unique Look
Custom woodwork such as bathroom vanities, kitchen cabinets, bars, and kitchen range hoods can give your home a truly unique look. It also allows you to create solutions that fit your needs and bring more functionality to your home. That’s where finding a remodeling contractor that has experienced woodworkers can really pay off. Together, they can help take your concepts from design to completion:
Remodeling & More Work for Me?
Of course not everyone wants to be an interior decorator or to research all the remodeling options/possibilities. That is where it helps to find a remodeling company with design experience. When looking, the first thing you should check for is a showcase or portfolio of their remodeling work to review the quality of their work as well as get ideas. The more extensive a portfolio is the more likely they can design and build whatever you want. Hopefully you found the above remodeling bits of information from our 20 years of remodeling experience to be helpful.
