Tuscan/Meditarrean Master Bathrooms

Easily one of the more popular remodel designs in Scottsdale, a Tuscan-style master bathroom is the way to go if you’re looking for a warm and inviting bathroom. With tan, gold, deep orange, and burnt yellow tones, a good Tuscan-style bathroom usually includes earthy features like natural stone or granite sinks and counter tops blended with the use of natural wood stools, benches, or cabinets.

Deep Colors

If remodeling your master bathroom seems a bit too much for your budget, try to give some attention to your guest bathroom by using deep, bold colors. You can accomplish this with either a simple repainting, or take it to the next level by applying glass tiles that use colors like magenta, deep purple, or a dark blue. Compliment these bold colors with a new stainless steel sink!

Green Machines

The “going green,” trend has not only taken over Scottsdale, but the rest of the United States. Conserving water is a big deal here in the Valley of the Sun, which is why home owners all across Scottsdale are switching to “green” toilets and sinks that help to keep water wasting to a minimum. Not only are these appliances good for the environment, they also come in cool, sleek designs that are perfect for any home.

Best Time to Remodel Your Kitchen

Best Time to Remodel Your Kitchen, scottsdale kitchen remodel

After you’ve been living in your house for a few years, it might be time to start considering a remodel. Most people opt for a kitchen remodel before anything else, as that’s one of the most popular living spaces in the house. But when is the best time to remodel your kitchen? Below are some questions you should ask yourself to help determine if it’s the right time for your kitchen remodel.

Do I have the budget for a kitchen remodel?

First off, it’s important to make sure that you’re financially stable enough. A kitchen remodel is a big project, and price should never be underestimated. Whether you’re doing the remodel yourself or hiring a licensed contractor, having a budget planned out is the first and most important step.

Do I have the time for a kitchen remodel?

The next important question to ask yourself is if you have the time, right now, to get started with a kitchen remodel. Make sure you’ll be able to afford the time of construction that will be happening within your home. When working with a contractor, you can almost guarantee your project will be done in a timely fashion with little room for error.

What do I want my kitchen to look like?

Having a strong idea of what your new kitchen will look like is important not only for yourself, but for anyone working on the remodel. When you have a clear image that you can communicate to a contractor, you won’t have any surprises when the remodel is complete. Things like colors, textures, and patterns are all important aspects of how your new kitchen will look and operate.

Whether you decide to work alone or with Arlington Custom Builders, we have plenty of kitchen remodeling tips and ways to help you make your dream kitchen come to life.

Should You Add on to Your Home or Move Out?

There’s no place like home—except when there’s no space for Toto or Auntie M.  While moving on to bigger things is always an alternative to knowing the sound of your in-laws’ snoring habits, sometimes you don’t want to leave. Maybe it’s the distance to your child’s school that keeps you from budging, or the kitchen windows that are making you ponder adding on to your home.

Before you make the jump of adding a room or two, make sure you think about the costs, labor, time, and issues, which could crop up.  Is your home in need of other necessary repairs such as roofing, air conditioning, or new appliances? If you have a long list of to-dos it’s probably best to get those taken care of first instead of adding to the problem.

If you haven’t already checked the property value of your neighborhood, take a look at what people are selling their homes for. A more accurate way to find out is to contact a local real estate agent who can access their databases with real time data. If the market is good, then perhaps selling your home is the best course of action!

If houses aren’t selling around you, or not at a good enough price you may want to consider adding-on, to increase your space now and property value later. An additional master bedroom could be a big selling point with potential buyers down the road.

Adding on to your home is often less expensive than buying a new home, even if it’s adding a second story. Plus, you have the ability to have a say in the design of the new construction. Ever wanted a walk-in shower? You got it! A big closet, sure thing!
