Start planning for your Dearborn home’s spring makeover

(BPT) –If April showers bring May flowers, what do winter’s snowflakes bring? Perhaps it’s an excuse to curl up with your

Merillat’s white cotton finish creates a timeless look while serving as a clean backdrop for trendy statement pieces.

favorite magazines and imagine the kitchen makeover of your dreams. When the cold winter months keep you indoors, use the time to take care of things that will make your remodeling plans much easier to tackle in the spring.-

Determine the scope of your project:

Do you need just a few coats of paint or a whole new kitchen? Take this time to evaluate what you want to accomplish. If you need to work with a designer or contractor, now is the time to do your research and engage professional help to plan. Look to online resources like the National Association of the Remodeling Industry or ask friends and family for recommendations. Meet with a few prospects and see whose work and costs fit your needs. You should also determine your budget and use that to guide the rest of your planning decisions.

Look for trends that last:

Once you have a good sense for what your project will involve, have fun dreaming up all the details. Are you looking to make a bold statement or create a timeless look? No matter how large or small your project, there are many current trends that can make a big impact in your home, yet will stand the test of time. In the kitchen, white cabinetry has had a resurgence of popularity and can create a classic look or serve as the perfect complement to colorful statement pieces that can be easily swapped out as trends change. For example, Merillat Cabinetry’s new Cotton finish creates a clean and bright look that can transition with you as your tastes evolve.

Roll-out trays provide easy access to stored items without having to bend or reach

Throughout the home, universal design is also becoming an increasingly important trend to consider. Planning your remodel so the space is comfortable to use for all ages and abilities will not only ensure your long-term enjoyment of the space, but can also help with resale value down the road. “As more and more homeowners are looking to age in place, they’re demanding designs that accommodate their changing needs without compromising on style,” says Sarah Reep, Merillat Cabinetry’s design lead. –

Clean house:

When you’re ready to get started on your remodel, you won’t want to worry about cleaning. Take time now to look at everything stored in your kitchen and pantry and determine what stays and what can go. It’ll make prepping for renovation projects that much easier. How old are those spices? What about that stack of lids with no container to match? Have lots of totes and bags hanging around? Donate the ones you don’t use and organize the rest. If you have kitchen items you can’t part with but you rarely use, pack them up now and store them until the remodel is complete. You’ll want as much free space to keep things out of the way during your remodel as possible.

If you take time now to get prepared for your kitchen remodel, you’ll thank yourself in a few months when the kitchen of your dreams is coming to life.

Use winter months to update & beautify your bathroom

(BPT) –Remodeling and refreshing the home is a great way to keep cabin fever at bay during long winter months. Designing a bathroom remodel to incorporate innovative style, comfort and efficiency helps to speed the winter months along, and your family will certainly enjoy the rest of the season with a beautiful new

Give Your Bath A Fresh New Look

bathroom.

Attention is often centered in the bathroom because it is a room frequently used by residents and guests. Even minor aesthetic changes can have a major impact in the room’s atmosphere. A bathroom remodel can be as simple as updating hardware on cabinets to a full redo of all fixtures. Consider the following ideas to incorporate new and innovative design, technology and eco-friendly products into your bath this winter season.

* A fresh, new look – The lavatory is seen and used by everyone who enters the bathroom. Bring traditional design into your bath with TOTO’s Vivian Widespread Single Handle high efficiency faucet. The curved spout provides sophistication and elegance that everyone will notice, and the faucet is WaterSense certified, adding a little green to your budget.

* Elegant and luxurious flooring – Beautiful new flooring brings elegance to the look of the room without being the center of attention. Wood, tile or even laminate tile floors can tie together the entire room in a subtle way. Soft and luxurious rugs in front of the lavatory and tub also add an element of texture.

* Deluxe accommodations – Technology innovations allow you to bring a spa-like experience right into your own bathroom with TOTO’s Washlet S350e with eWater+. You don’t even need to replace your existing toilet. The Washlet S350e provides gentle front- and back-aerated warm water spray that can be regulated for preferred water pressure and temperature. The technology also incorporates a built-in air purifying system and warm air dryer to really amp up the spa experience in your own bathroom. The new eWater+ feature utilizes electrolyzed water, a proven disinfectant long used in food preparation and cleaning, which TOTO has harnessed to help consumers keep their toilet bowl fresh and clean.

* Showering environment – A shower is much more than just a place to wash the body and hair. It’s a chance to energize yourself, to relax after a long day of work and to brainstorm with uninterrupted creativity. Pick the perfect showerhead that delivers the water pressure and style that cater to your personality, so you can use your shower as an environment to rejuvenate yourself and put energy back into your step.

* Upgrading your fixtures – Bringing a new toilet into your bathroom can not only help you improve your water usage, but also add style as well. TOTO’s UltraMax II Toilet has a sleek, high profile in a one-piece traditional design to look great in your bathroom setting. And it is also WaterSense approved with Double Cyclone flushing technology, providing you with a powerful, quiet flush that uses a modest 1.28 gallons per flush, saving you money on your water bill.

Remodeling a bathroom to incorporate new eco-friendly technology and beautiful ambiance and style can do so much for your home. You’ll never notice the long winter months as you enjoy your own spa-like setting, and your utility bill will also be more affordable with the addition of high efficiency technology to bring your bathroom up to date.

It’s time to plan outdoor updates for your Dearborn home.

 

(ARA) – Has the cold weather started you dreaming of warm days spending time with friends and family in your Dearborn Michigan home’s backyard? The cold weather may keep us indoors, but professionals in the landscape and remodeling industry are still thinking about the outdoors and use the winter months to plan spring projects, and so should you. 

Winter months provide the perfect opportunity to prepare your Dearborn home’s outdoor space for the warmer months. Planning and prepping now will ensure that you get full use of your outdoor space for the entire season once warm weather arrives. Get a head start by planning some of these spring projects now:

Deck
Sitting on your deck enjoying warm, sunny days or cooler evenings is something everyone looks forward to. Adding a new deck to your home or replacing an existing one adds value to your real estate investment. Homeowners have been consistently choosing composite decking over wooden decks over the past several years because composite decking is high performance and low maintenance, unlike wood decking which can splinter and crack, and often requires staining and sealing. Composite decking is long-lasting, durable, made of recycled materials, and resists mildew, warping and insects. According to Remodeling magazine 2009-10 Cost vs. Value Report, adding a composite deck to your home has a 70 percent return on investment.

You can find free online tools to help you plan your new decking project during winter months. Visit  Timbertech.com to learn which decking materials are best for you by taking a quick quiz. Create free deck designs with the Online Deck Designer. Mix and match decking and railing colors with the Color Visualizer and be inspired by other deck designs in the Photo Gallery. Before you know it, you’ll have the perfect plan for your dream deck so when warm weather hits, you’re ready.
