While summer is winding down and the fall season approaches, many homeowners are already thinking of family gatherings to come. With that being said, many of our customers are thinking of a fresh coat of paint. Though painting on the inside of your home is always a terrific way to change an outdated area, we encourage homeowners to look on the outside. Sometimes learning how to choose the right outdoor paint for your home can be daunting. At TrustBilt Albuquerque, New Mexico we can help. We assist our customers in making the right color selection that fits their custom needs and go well with the area in which they live.

Color Selection Does Not Have to be Confusing

We recommend you do some research before you make a final decision. For instance; think about the color of your home now and what you like and do not like about it. If your home already has a dark exterior, and you desire to lighten it up, plan on using a good primer underneath the paint. If you are selling your home and trying to make it look appealing, we suggest a light color that also makes your home look bigger. Light colors also do better in direct sunlight and in areas where temperatures tend to freeze. Dark colors tend to fade in sunlight and in areas where the temperatures fluctuates. If you are still not sure what colors hold up well with environmental changes, we suggest taking a small drive around your own neighborhood. You will easily be able to see which colors look great after years and which ones look dingy or worn.

Look at the Material of Your Home When Making a Color Selection

It is one thing to like a color and another to make sure that your home can pull it off. If the siding on your home is made of wood, your paint color options are plentiful. On the other hand, stucco tends to have issues unless you use a more muted or subtle tone of paint color, rather than something bold. The trim on your home is always something to take into consideration, as well. Some people prefer more than one trim color. A contrasting trim color seems to be more common. Regardless, we suggest taking your time during the paint color selection so that you will love the color, not just like it or put up with it. One great way to do this is to purchase a few samples of paint color and put them on different sides of your home. Paint looks different in the evening than it does in the morning, so making sure you like the look of the paint all day long, is a good place to start.

TrustBilt Offers A Wide Variety of Paint Options for Interior and Exterior Surfaces

Tips on How to Create a Bedroom and Bath for Your New Child

Uncategorized

Nursery options

When young families have a little one on the way, it often makes them start thinking of creating the perfect space for their new family member. This space should allow them to be comfortable from the beginning of life until they are off to college. This can be challenging, but TrustBilt of Albuquerque, NM can help! We offer tips on how to create a bedroom and bath for your new child that will easily meet their needs as they grow.

The Nursery Stage

It can be downright daunting when planning for a new baby, and trying to imagine the perfect room that allows for growth. Of course, initially you will need space for a crib, changing table, dresser, comfy chair, closet space and toy storage. It is essential also to have easy access to a bathroom. Let’s face it, babies need lots of items such as diapers, clothing, blankets and more. Cubbies for storage and ways to prevent clutter are a necessity. Having all these items at an arm’s reach can make caring for your newborn, much easier. Additionally, it is more practical to have easy access to the bathroom when toilet training, as well as providing a private bath for your growing child who will soon be a teenager. TrustBilt can help you plan for a natural transition through the years, and we have solutions for any budget.

Flooring That Stands the Test of Time

Many new parents have difficulty thinking of the right flooring to choose when creating a space that is functional and timeless. The best choice for a child’s bedroom is wood or laminate flooring and a large area rug. The rug allows your child a comfortable and safe place to play and a soft landing to silence foot noise. It makes cleaning the floor easier, and the area rug can be changed out during different phases of your child’s growth to suit their likes and needs. Wood or laminate flooring is easy to clean and keep beautiful. It also is very resistant to the everyday spills and accidents of childhood, unlike many wall to wall carpeting choices. In addition, wood or laminate flooring adds to the warmth and beauty of any room, allowing functionality and comfort when you need it the most!

Allowing Growth from Newborn to Toddler with Color Choices

Once you decide on the perfect color for the nursery, you can also make it a color that will transition through the early childhood development years. For instance, powder or pastel blues and pinks may work for a year or so but soon your child will outgrow them. Children crave a colorful environment. It not only stimulates growth but allows for a place in which they will love to play. You may want to opt for some bold colors that make the room fun for your child and you. There are plenty of unisex colors to choose from that will adapt to any child. Colors, textures and patterns all work well with child development, making your child’s room the perfect place to play it up!

Options for Children’s Bathrooms

At first glance in the bath, you may want to use a floor covering such as a ceramic tile that withstands moisture and more. Additionally, a small children’s commode is great for potty-training and can be quickly changed out to a standard size as your child grows. Lots of cabinet storage for bath toys, towels, powders, hair and body toiletries, and extra diapers, etc., are stored nicely in the child’s bath. Make sure that easy access to toothbrushes and other grooming items are easily accessible for your child as they grow, along with some interesting color will make the bathroom a fun and comfortable room.

Designing the nursery and children’s bath can be lots of fun! Think about colors, textures and ways to make your child’s space more engaging. At TrustBilt, we love helping growing families stay within budget while assisting them in realizing their dreams for their family.

Do You Need a Sustainable Landscaping Renovation?

Uncategorized

When planning a workable landscape, one must consider the long-term of caring for and maintaining the grounds. Creating an outdoor space that is attractive and functional should be just one of your objectives. It is important to identify what is not working well in your landscape before making changes. TrustBilt can help New Mexico businesses, and homeowners realize a beautiful outdoor space by incorporating sustainable landscaping renovations.

What is Sustainable Landscaping?

There are several definitions for sustainable landscaping; however, manageable solutions should consider little resources for maintenance with grass, plant and tree selections that are indigenous. Low maintenance considerations are significant benefits when planning the best sustainable landscape. In New Mexico, we have more than one planting zone, so planning ahead and being knowledgeable about your area, will help you secure the right choices needed for long-term landscapes that need very little attention.

Another component of sustainable landscapes is water conservation. Conservation can be difficult in the New Mexico heat. Savvy landscapers have learned that good fertilization, heavy mulching, enclosed patio nurseries, and selecting medicinal plants, can all add to the beauty and function in any outdoor space whether it be large or small.

Watering Systems

Regularly, a segment of New Mexico experiences a drought season. For example, the average, yearly rainfall for Albuquerque, New Mexico is 9.5 inches. Because of this, water preservation is crucial. Again, you can avoid water runoff by incorporating a healthy mulch to retain moisture. Add 3 – 4 inches around blossoming shrubs and plants but abstain from placing mulch against tree trunks as this practice can invite pests and disease.

Separate your plants and organize those that have identical water needs together, such as a garden. Other areas can be for the lower use of water with local bushes and flowers. Drip lines are efficient watering systems that maintain a sustainable landscape easily and conservatively. Sprinkler systems for grassy lawns can be set up to water for short periods of time daily usually before sunrise and after sunset are the best times to water.

Diverse Landscaping Needs Requires a Professional

If you need protection from the wind, more shade, or more sun, you will benefit by having a team of professionals who understand New Mexico climate changes. We offer outdoor solutions that meet all of your needs. At TrustBilt of New Mexico, we not only remodel homes, but we also provide sustainable landscaping services. For a free estimate, call (505) 688-8194.

TrustBilt offers curb appealing landscaping and upgrades for any business of home.

It’s that time of year again when you will see neighbors out in the yard working frantically to get their places mowed, trimmed and pristine. All of this is in hopes of offering a better curb appeal and use of their outdoor space. At TrustBilt, we not only assist homeowners with inside remodels, we help create beautiful spaces outside, for the entire family to enjoy! If you need to add some curb appeal to your space, TrustBilt of ABQ helps your home look great inside and out!

Real Game Changers When it Comes to Curb Appeal

Let’s face it. Most homeowners forget the outdoors when considering a remodel. Do you know what makes your home a head-turner in your community? Take a look around? If you know of a home in New Mexico that you like because of its curb appeal, take notice of what attracts you to it. For instance, the most appealing homes have sophisticated front doors, great color schemes and a well-planned out scheme of the landscape. Of course, we cannot forget the roofing, the right windows for the house, and the pathway or walkway that you first see upon arrival. All of these elements work together to produce curb appeal and add a sense of peace and satisfaction when coming home after a long day at work.

Property Values and Curb Appeal Work Together in Your Favor

Most homes can add elements of curb appeal to their outdoor land schemes without busting the bank. Also, a curb appeal remodel or makeover adds value to any home, regardless of where you are located. If you plan to sell your home, you will eventually make all of your money back and more. Low energy maintenance seems to be the leading element that makes most homes more attractive. Beautiful picture windows, steel doors that never need painting and more are not only inviting but offer excellent eye-catching selling points. We help people spruce up the exterior of their homes, even on a modest budget. If you need a painting job, choose a color that is pleasing to the eye, and blends well into your community backdrop. Lounging porches and other quality upgrades add value and usable space to your home. Patios with some form of water fountains or fire pits make your space useable nearly year round while affordably increasing the aesthetic value of your home.
