Here are some great affordable bathroom remodeling ideas whether you want to gut your bathroom and start over or simply upgrade and enhance small parts of it on a budget!

Let’s start with your large existing Jacuzzi bath tub. These have grown less popular with the aging population as they are difficult to get in and out of and take up a lot of space in the bathroom itself. People are more often than not opting to have the Jacuzzi tub removed and either purchase a soaking tub that is free standing or simply enlarge the shower and not have a tub in the master bathroom at all!

Bathroom flooring is an often debated area. Traditionally, you will find people upgrading their floors to larger tiles with thin grout lines for less maintenance. You can find some wonderful design ideas that people have submitted to an on-line home remodeling gallery called Houzz and then go to a local bathroom remodeling web site for more design ideas like ours, Value Remodelers and Handyman Services. While many people are on a budget, there are very attractive linoleum products and even synthetic hardwoods that are available.

Showers have undergone the most dramatic changes these days. People want more space, more shower heads, more body sprays, benches, lighting, sound, and niches for storage. The old days of the plastic shower floors and gone and people have gone to decorative smaller tiles for the flooring. They are integrating small glass tiles in rows between the larger shower wall tiles. It is now common to find “pony walls” to break up the amount of glass being uses on the enclosures. Finally, we are seeing frameless glass the most popular shower enclosure being selected. To get great visual ideas, go to valueremodelers.com

How to find a good handyman service in Charlotte?

People are staying in their homes longer and longer. Just like keeping an automobile longer, homes require more maintenance as time goes by. When people do not address these items, the problems grow larger.

That being said, many of the home repair needs require special skills and often we as consumers do not possess them. So, how do you find a good handyman in Charlotte, NC? Here are some tips to help you feel safe and confident:

1. Get a minimum of 5 references from previous clients

2. Call your local Better Business Bureau

3. Do a thorough on-line search of any activities and check out their web site

4. Go to their place of business (even if it’s their home!)

Value Remodelers and Handyman Services is an Archadeck of Charlotte company and located right in Charlotte and serves a 40 mile radius. They have a showroom and an unblemished reputation. For more information, go to www.valueremodelers.com or www.charlotte.archadeck.com

 

How many references should I check when it comes to home remodeling?

Unfortunately, when today’s consumer goes to invite a remodeling contractor (or any contractor) into their home, the decision is usually based on hearing from one neighbor or friend that the contractor did a good job.

When you are making a decision to hire someone to work one of your largest investments (your home), it makes more sense to get a minimum of 4 references as we find anyone can have a “good day”. The advice from the National Association of Remodelers (NARI) and other respected organizations is to properly vet contractors by talking to 3-4 references who have contracted these people and look at their work. If they cannot provide hundreds of examples of their work, do you really know for sure?

Return on Investment for remodeling projects?

At Archadeck of Charlotte, we are constantly asked about return on investment when it comes to different remodeling projects. Remodeling Magazine publishes an annual report each year that updates the annual results of return on investment. Outdoor living has risen as a return on investment for the past 5 years as people began staying home more and we not able to sell their homes very easily.

Now people realize they are going to have to invest  money back into their homes in order to keep them up to date, for maintenance reasons, and for the ability to sell the home as there is so much competition.  The leading remodeling projects for return on investment are bathrooms, decks, patio’s, and kitchens.
