Fort Collins Home RemodelingMaybe it’s a decades-old bathroom complete with the original wallpaper, or a closed-off kitchen with cabinets that have seen too many coats of paint over the years. Or it could be a dirty, unfinished basement with so much wasted potential. Maybe it’s all of these at once.

In all of these cases and more, remodeling can vastly improve your home experience and give you a modern, comfortable space to enjoy. But many homeowners who would love to make this change hesitate, year after year, with no real plan to make it happen.

Why homeowners hesitate to experience a Fort Collins Home Remodeling project?

  • Cost
  • Stress
  • Fear

Stress

True, home improvements are disruptive, and during a home remodeling work you’ll need to adjust your schedule and make some alternate arrangements. But when your project is delivered by a qualified, professional team with the right tools and equipment for the job the work goes surprisingly fast, allowing us to minimize the disruption and stress you and your family encounter.

On top of that, when you choose to work with us, you will be choosing an organized experience from start to finish.

Fear

Yes, it’s the middle of winter, and the colder weather has probably put a stop to your remodeling project —at least the ones that involve working outdoors. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be thinking ahead. Why not get a jump-start on spring? Take time now, to walk around the house, or look out your windows, and dream big….

  • Sure, you’ve got a lovely living room, with a fireplace keeping you warm on these cold evenings, but the linoleum on the floor has developed an unintended—and unattractive—pattern of burn marks over the years. Is it time to consider upgrading your living room…perhaps some beautiful distressed wood floors, with an elegant polished-stone apron in front of that nice warm fireplace?
  • Yes, you have your grill tucked away for the winter, but where does it live in warmer weather? Rather than have it taking over part of your well-manicured lawn, why not construct an outdoor cooking space, complete with a nice seating area or bar your friends can lean against—and set their drinks upon—while you are grilling?
  • Watching your cat stare out the kitchen window, twitching her tail as she sees birds at the feeders, you realize that it might be a lot of fun to see her watching fish swim around in that abandoned backyard fishpond you’ve been carefully ignoring for the past three years. Whether it’s simply a matter of fixing a leak, or replacing the entire system, it would be very nice to enjoy all of your yard, come spring….

Whatever you’re envisioning, we can help you make it happen. Believe it or not, midwinter is an excellent time to contact us and begin the planning process. We would not want to get between you and your fireplace, but once the weather is warm enough to enjoy time outdoors, we can be ready to step in and transform that outdated living room floor. If you contact us now, we will be primed to “spring forward” with your remodeling project, be it your outdoor kitchen or abandoned pond, the moment temperatures remain high enough for us to pour the concrete. So contact us about your midwinter dream, and we will help you make it come true.

When you embark on a home remodel in Fort Collins (or Loveland, Windsor, Berthoud, etc.) the goal is redesigning and refreshing your home to make it more functional for your family’s needs.  Nothing accentuates this transformation quite like a change in your home’s color palette, with shades that reflect your home’s new features.

Choosing the perfect paint colors for your home, however, can be daunting.  With so many hundreds of shades in every imaginable hue, where do you start?  The design experts from O Magazine offer some great advice:

  • Start with your wardrobe.  In order to get an idea of which colors draw you in, shop your own closet and look for color trends among your favorite pieces.  Whether it’s sage green, wine red, or warm mocha that keeps popping up, you’ll get an idea of which colors naturally attract you.
  • Analyze your lifestyle.  Think about the room you’re redesigning.  When do you use it the most, and for which purpose?  If it’s a nook where you eat breakfast on most days, you might prefer a brighter, morning-friendly color.  For a study that you use primarily in the evenings, a warm brown or burgundy might set just the right tone.
  • Carry hints throughout.  Having echoes of one color throughout the house can give it an airy, open feeling, but you don’t need to repeat the same exact shade in each room.  Settle on a color that really appeals to you in one room, and then use lighter or darker shades of the same hue in adjoining rooms.
  • Don’t hug the wall.  While taping paint swatches to the wall is the first step for many painting projects, don’t stick to the wall for too long.  You may have visual interference from the existing paint color, distorting the look of the new shade.  Instead, move the swatch next to the items that will be in the finished room to imagine how it will look with your furniture, art, and accessories.

No matter which shade catches your eye, Artisan Remodeling and Design will bring our professionalism and craftsmanship to your Fort Collins home remodel.  Contact us to learn more about our work, and for a free estimate on your project.

basement remodeling Fort Collins - General Contractor - Artisan Remodeling & DesignIt seems like the trend these days is do-it-yourself. Home improvement shows on television make everything look easy, and the commercials for hardware stores say they will help you get things done. But to be honest, not everyone has the time or the skills to DIY, as this story we came across will show. If this sounds familiar to you, let a home remodeling company in Fort Collins help you out.

A young, ambitious couple just moved into their first house, and decided they wanted to install a set of pull-down steps to provide easier access to the attic. They cut the hole for the stairs, and couldn’t believe how well their first major project was going. The husband went up in the attic to secure the stair frame to the joists, while the wife stood underneath the stairs holding it in place. Once the husband finished securing the frame, he called down to the Mrs. to pull on the cord and release the stairs so he could get out of the attic. The cord wouldn’t budge for some reason, and after a minute she discovered that the stairs had been nailed shut to keep them from coming open during shipping. Panic set in as they realized the husband was trapped in the attic with the only hammer they owned, so there was no way to pull the nails out and let the stairs down. Now, this couple could have borrowed a neighbor’s hammer or even run to the store to get another one, but th ey ended up calling 911 to have the local emergency squad rescue them from their first home improvement project.

Some people just aren’t handy, or don’t have time to tackle the projects they would like to do around the house.

We’re licensed, insured, and we guarantee you will be satisfied with our work, without any embarrassing stories to tell.

As temperatures start to drop across Colorado, we can look forward to spending more time gathering with friends and family in our homes for holiday parties and festive meals.

But of course, with our extra guests comes the need for extra space, which is why a sunroom could be the perfect addition to your home.  Here are a few reasons why:

  • Sunrooms add valuable square footage to your home, as well as much-needed space for when guests gather at the holiday season.  For large meals like Thanksgiving, you can use your sunroom as a bonus dining area.  That way, you’ll be sure to comfortably fit in every single person on your guest list.
  • Sunrooms (not surprisingly!) let in a tremendous amount of natural light, which you’ll appreciate even more during the shorter, darker winter months.  More sunlight also means added natural warmth in your home, and for those who miss getting to spend more time outdoors, a sunroom can be a relaxing spot to soak up some rays.
  • Sunrooms can be the perfect place for a homework area, reading nook, or home office.  Because it’s a flexible space, your sunroom has the ability to grow and change with the needs of your family.

As with any remodeling project in Fort Collins, you can count on the experience and expertise of Artisan Remodeling and Design to build you the sunroom of your dreams.  Contact us to learn more about our family owned and operated business, and to see examples of our work from throughout Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor.
