In spite of the fact that the ceiling has a tendency to be out of sight, the right designs on the ceiling can have a vivid effect on the general décor. Designs and hues can be utilized to highlight a focal light, and the additional space frequently functions admirably for most remodeling schemes. At TrustBilt of New Mexico, we recommend you explore your options when it comes to texture, color and design of your ceiling and don’t forget to look up when planning your remodel.

Include a Specialty Design

There are numerous choices for ceiling beautifications. As opposed to painting the ceiling a smooth white to supplement the dividers, you could embellish the ceilings with beautiful elements that make them stand out gracefully. For example, in the event that you have white dividers, then a diverse flower example will most likely draw the eye, light up the space and make an impression in the room.

Ceiling outlines are suitable for a wide exhibit of aesthetic tastes. Considering adding softly-hued vines inching in from the corners to the overhead light in the focal point of the ceiling that offer an interesting effect. Likewise if you incorporate rich, yellow tones that become more immersed toward the focal point of the ceiling, it will cause your ceiling to stand out.

Try to Incorporate Shading Principles

A ceiling painted one solid color may not be sufficient. This is especially true when it comes to making your ceiling an eye-catcher. Nonetheless, including a few simple designs– even customary, geometric ones like dabs or rectangles – can add a pleasant visual enhancement to the room. This also gives the room a more open appearance, and offers more area options in which to place lighting. Since the ceiling is not a space that can become too cluttered with decor, any practical design that you like, and that compliments your flooring may be a better fit for the ceiling. Swirls and conventional themes on the ceiling can make for an intriguing vision, particularly orchestrated around the focal lighting. Exposed beams, textures and other elements can change an ordinary ceiling into a eye drawing masterpiece!

Traditional and Innovative Ceiling Designs

More often than not, parts of the ceiling that include inclines and dissensions, can give a room an alluring and inviting sense of feel. Wood framing is a lovely change of pace, particularly if the dividers are a solid hue of pigment, and will assist in making the ceiling to emerge. Picking the right hues for lightening is essential, as well. Pick colors that accentuate the lighting in the room so that the carved floral design, wood molding or other creative elements stand out against it.

At TrustBilt, we take pride in helping our customers make the right choices for celling design and color. Remember, a remodel often consist of adapting your ceiling to your new floor design elements. Call TrustBilt at 505-688-8194 today for a free estimate.

At TrustBilt, We Remodel Kitchens with Every Station in Mind

Uncategorized

Custom Kitchen TrustBilt is continually discovering less demanding, remodeling solutions for our customers in New Mexico. Case in point, the “kitchen work triangle” is a very common idea. However, in the event that you haven’t heard, the format virtually commands a standard design for kitchen productivity where the most well-known kitchen apparatuses are put in closeness to one another. The thought is that your refrigerator, sink, and cooktop ought to frame a free right triangle with enough–but not very much–space between them. It’s an awesome approach to consider for your kitchen. However, the model was imagined when kitchens were much littler and not the center of the home.

Today, with such a variety of new apparatuses, innovation, and new in-home culinary hobbyist, now is the ideal time to reconsider the old triangle. From incorporating divider stoves to making sense of whether to run with an island or a landmass, here’s the way to think outside the triangle as you approach that kitchen rebuild.

The Work Station is a Must for Every Well Used Kitchen

In light of the traditional design, kitchen formats have advanced immensely through time, and the “working triangle” has developed into the “workstation.” The advantage and effectiveness is the same, thus, discussions with your remodeling professional or foreman will help you settle on the best choices about how to lay out your specific space. Consider how you function in your kitchen right now. Is it safe to say that you are the main cook in the house? Does your cooking style oblige for loads of prep space? Do loved ones have a tendency to accumulate there, or is it a space designed for only the cook? These are all questions that need answering before moving forward with your remodel. Once you’ve made sense of how you work, bunch kitchen gear, and necessities into workstations. Organize the areas as indicated by the space available. It will take some prioritizing, so that when your remodel is complete, all stations such as prep, cooking, stockpiling, cleaning and eating stations are all accounted for.

Now For the Cook Station

The focal point of the cooking station is the cooktop, broiler, oven or stove. Make a point to incorporate counter space on either side as an exchange station to and from the cooking appliances. Commit the storage room in the cooking station to the gear that will be utilized just there. Contingent upon space you may want to incorporate preparation or heating equipment too–but a kitchen island is a perfect station for prep, so it merits much consideration in your remodeling plans.

Pantries and Storerooms off the Wash Room Make Great Storage Stations

The storage or stockpiling station ought to be revolved around the refrigerator and the washroom. We find that a storeroom located near the fridge itself is the best solution. It accommodates the pantry area without obliging you to make an additional move to get what you require. Dried, canned and other food or non-food stuffs, are now within arms-reach, making cleanup afterward a cinch!

The Cleaning Station Needs to Incorporate Practical and Useable Solutions

Create your cleaning station around the sink and introduce the dishwasher there, as well. This is the place you see the benefit of a triangle design. If the sink and dishwasher are between the cooking and stockpiling stations, everything streams actually toward the sink, dishwasher and waste and reusing. You will need to keep in mind a sink that makes cleaning anything more advantageous, and incorporate garbage bins on sliders that keep waste and reusing discrete and sterile.

The Eating Station Should Incorporate a Social Environment with Ease

For the vast majority of our customers, the kitchen is an exceptionally social space. So, in a perfect world you can make a space where visitors or family can stay with you or snatch a small bite of food without feeling like they are intruding. This is the reason the kitchen island has turned out to be a well-used space. An island with a bar/seating zone is incredible for companions to appreciate a glass of ice tea while you plan supper, or for the children to do some homework or fulfill their munchies after school. On the off chance that you do have a high-movement kitchen, you likewise need to make sure to plan ahead with larger floor space if conceivable. This allows the space between your work and social station to flow smoothly.

At TrustBilt of New Mexico, we totally love designing kitchen spaces for our customers and remodeling their dream kitchens on a budget. For a free estimate call TrustBilt at 505-688-8194. We offer a variety of kitchen remodeling packages from the ceiling to the floor!

At TrustBilt, we make dreams come true!

Have you been perusing through design magazines and online websites that offer good remodeling ideas but fail to be realistic on costs? At TrustBilt of Albuquerque, New Mexico, we have good news for you. We offer affordable remodeling packages for everyone, and we can show you how to transform your space on a budget.

Detail, Detail, Detail

Before you ever begin a remodeling project with a licensed professional, you should pay close attention to details. Whether you want to renovate your current space or just moved into a new home that needs to be adapted to you needs, make sure that you cover all the options when it comes to design. You can expect to pay some money to keep your home updated and comfortable. However, you do not have to break the bank for good design elements or details. No need to go with luxurious design if you are more of a lay back, easy going individual. The most important element that you can incorporate into your new space is your personality. Chances are, you have a pretty good idea what you already want and need to make the space your own.

Stylish Comfort and Affordability

Living rooms are the place where family and friends hang out, so you do not want it to be too stuffy or so plush that no one can relax. You can increase elegance through lighting and molding and keep the room relaxed enough to kick back and read your favorite novel. If you have small children in the home, think about storage spaces for toys and books etc., which can be incorporated into the design without taking up too much of the area. We offer great design ideas that can add elegance and practicality to your living room space while meeting the needs of everyone in the home.

Bathroom Details Should Rank HIGH on Your Remodeling List

Where do you begin each day? Most people will answer, “In the bathroom.” This is all the more of a reason to make sure that you pay attention to details when remodeling or renovating your bath area. Almost every one of our customers desires a space that looks chic and feels luxurious. Marble counters and floors are a beautiful design element that can be affordable and make the bathroom more inviting.

Consider the Age Factor When Remodeling

Uncategorized

To be honest with you, most of us never think of the desired results when it comes to remodeling except our present need for improving an outdated design. As we age, our needs become different. If you plan on staying in your home throughout retirement, you will need to be more proactive in making sure that you consider the age factor when remodeling. At TrustBilt of Albuquerque, NM, we have allowed many retirees to stay in their current homes with affordable updates and renovations that meet the needs of every age group.

Health and Aging Issues Are Important Issues When Updating or Remodeling

Let’s face it—most people never think about age or health as a priority when remodeling, but they should. Statistics says that up to forty percent of Boomers will remodel their home in the future. Most remodeling ideas are approached with updating in mind, especially in kitchen and bath areas. Would your current remodel meet your needs as you age or encounter any health issues? The best way to approach a remodel is with a universal design that meets all ages. A universal or livable design will not only benefit you in the present, but for years to come. No one plans on getting ill or not being able to do things as they age, but life happens.

Design Elements for Livable Space Updates

There are several design elements to take into consideration when you are embarking on an update or complete remodeling job. Lighting is probably one of the most crucial aspects to consider. When we age, lighting seems to be a greater need for us whether we are brushing our teeth, cooking or reading. Lighting can be an affordable way to update your home, but keep in mind that the “older eyes” need readily accessible lighting for almost every task. Other elements of design to look out for would be adding pullout drawers in base cabinets, leveling thresholds between rooms, and installing handles that are easier to hold on to instead of knobs. Other implementations such as countertop heights should be considered during a remodel. All of these can be easily implemented to fit into your home, making sure that when you age, your home doesn’t outgrow your basic needs of accessibility.

Walk-In Showers Offer Feasible Design for an Aging Population

Walk-in showers work best for an aging population but make sure the threshold is insignificant or obsolete, as it can lead to a tripping hazard. The use of a single-lever faucet also helps adults adapt to aging, as well as grab bars in both the tub and shower. Handheld shower hoses work best when they can be adjusted to height. Also, one should consider raised toilets when remodeling a bath. None of these elements takes away from contemporary design, and allow an aging population to stay in their home when they retire.

At TrustBilt of ABQ, NM, we strive to meet the needs of all of our customers and offer custom designs that enable an aging population the ability to stay in their homes as long as they want. If you need a new renovation or update that will meet your needs now, and in the future, call us for a FREE ESTIMATE at (505) 688-8194 today. We offer remodeling and new addition construction services throughout New Mexico, including Albuquerque and Santé Fe, New Mexico areas.

Should I Move or Remodel?

Uncategorized

Question. Closeup portrait of dumb clueless young man, arms out asking what's the problem who cares so what, I don't know. Isolated on white background. Negative human emotion, facial expressions, attitude

Are you considering a move because your home does not meet your current needs? You love your neighborhood, your location and cannot imagine what it would be like if you moved away, however; you are in a dilemma. Taking on a big move can be costly and tiring, and right now, housing values are declining. As the market fluctuates, it can be risky to find the right time to move or sell. That is why TrustBilt of Albuquerque, NM is offering answers to whether you should move or remodel.

Making More Room for a Growing Family

Usually, deciding to move comes quickly, especially when the home you live in just isn’t meeting your family’s needs anymore. What if the current home you live in could allow for more useable space? Does your property allow for a room addition, and would that remedy your concerns? These are all questions that you will need to be able to answer before making a bigger decision to move. The best way to know if remodeling is feasible for you, is to request a free estimate from a reliable remodeling company like TrustBilt of Albuquerque, New Mexico. We will be more than honest with you if a remodel is a viable solution to your problems. More often than not, remodeling can save the headache of a big move!

There Is No Payback for Moving

Money spent in moving cannot be recouped, and it is expensive. Once you put together the costs of moving, finance charges, real estate commissions, utility deposits and other unplanned bills, it adds up quickly. Don’t forget to factor in the taxes that change with a move. It’s true that your taxes may increase slightly with a remodel, but not anywhere near the amount if you take on a big move. When you compare the appreciation of a remodeled home, you can stay longer where you are at, while the property value increases. Then, if you want to move, move on your terms and not because your home no longer meets your needs. Once a remodel makes your space more manageable, you can wait until the real estate market picks up before putting a sale sign in your yard.

Is Your Remodeling Job In Touch With Reality?

No one wants to have a remodel done only to find out that there is no return on your investment. One of the best ways to make sure that your remodel is justified is to know the return you can expect on home improvement. Some remodeling or upkeep projects like new siding or a minor bath update can bring in 2/3 or more on every dollar spent. Sunrooms and pools usually do not yield a high ROI, so be cautious as to what kind of remodel or renovation you are seeking to increase the value of your home. In doing so, you can decide whether to stay put for a few more years or many more years to come.

If you need a free estimate for a remodel or renovation, call TrustBilt of Albuquerque, New Mexico today at (505) 688-8194. We provide businesses and homeowners remodeling services throughout New Mexico including Santé Fe and Albuquerque, NM areas.

Why Do Many Customers Wait Until Summer for a Remodel Project?

Uncategorized

summer 2  At TrustBilt of ABQ, New Mexico, we have been in the industry long enough to understand why our customers choose summertime for major remodels. There are several good reasons why summer is the most popular time of the year to take on a remodeling project. Here are some facts that may help you understand why many customers wait until summer for a remodel project.

Longer Days and Nights

The summer season brings with it longer days and nights that help the construction crew be able to work extra hours and get the project accomplished faster. With that thought in mind, who likes a remodel job that appears to be unending? Fortunately, we have never experienced such a remodel, but we have heard the nightmares of some of our competitors. We like taking advantage of longer work days and getting the job done, making both our team of professionals happy and our customers!

Summer Remodels Allow For Less Drying Time and More

Not only does summer bring with it warmer temps, but it also allows for applications of texture, paint, and other design elements to dry more quickly. We can open the windows and apply stain, sealer or paint, and it will dry in half the time. Also, if you have ever had a remodel done before, then you know the fumes of paint and other products can affect some members of your household. The outdoor summers in New Mexico make for a nice match when it comes to keeping your indoor air quality bearable.

Take a Vacation and Leave the Remodel to the Professionals!

At summertime, many families like to take vacations. Vacation time is a prime time for a remodel, as no one in the family needs to be exposed to paint smells or dust. Sometimes this is a significant factor in why our clients book their remodels in the summertime. We stay in touch with our customers, as little or as much as they want during their vacation. We can send pictures and updates and may need to ask minor questions of our clients, so having a contact number makes the project go smoothly without a hitch. When you plan to come home after the remodel is done, you will experience a clean and ready to use refurbished area without any of the fuss of dust or odors.

Landscaping Remodeling Projects Move Faster

If your remodel includes a porch, patio or deck, it directly affects your yard space. When we finish the building of your new area, we then replace grass or do final stages of outdoor landscaping. During the summer, it’s prime time to plant new bushes and plants, as they will grow quickly. Also, this allows for the flow of your new outdoor area to come to life faster than in other times of the year.
