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.

Don’t Forget to Look Up When Planning Your Remodel

This ceiling renders an effective 3-D design

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.

New Remodel Pitfalls That Can Be Avoided

Granite Countertops

José Iván Bernardo Vázquez  So spring is here, and you are ready to tackle that long awaited remodel. Before you take out the sledgehammer and start tearing down your outdated bath, kitchen or other area, you might want to consider the costs. At TrustBilt LLC of Albuquerque, NM, we take pride in educating our customers about remodels and helping them save the headache of costly remodel mistakes, as well as backaches. Below are some new remodel pitfalls that can be avoided.

Plan, Plan, Plan

We cannot tell you how many times we have seen customers start a remodel without making plans. They have decided that they are just sick of their bath or kitchen, and so they go head strong into the project. It is not long before they find out that they are stuck with no place to go because of poor planning. The best thing one can do before ever starting a remodel is to come up with a good plan. That plan will consist of design and pricing. TrustBilt never starts any remodel without first getting to know the customer, their needs, their budget and more. Every remodel, no matter how well planned out, will run into some small unforeseen issue that can bring the entire project to a halt. That is why it is imperative to plan out the project strategically and come to an agreement about how to approach unforeseen issues before ever starting.

Don’t Rush Into Choosing A Contractor!

Many people are in such a hurry to get the remodel done; they pick the first contractor available. Take the time to know the contractor you are going to work with. If that contractor hasn’t got the time of day to sit with you, learn what you are looking for, and approach the project professionally within agreed guidelines, beware. Once you get started, it may be too late to change your mind if you rush into the project blindly. A good contractor will ask many, emphasis on MANY questions before ever accepting the job and making recommendations. If not, move on until you find someone who wants to know the scope of the project and can perform the remodel professionally.

Frequent Remodel Changes Will Set You Back

After you have agreed with a particular contractor, keep in mind the costs of materials, the time needed to accomplish the project, your budget, and more. Lastly, know that you know what you want upfront. Making significant changes to the remodel while in progress can costs you in materials, time and frustrate you and the remodeling professionals. We are not talking different paint colors or subtle changes here. We are talking adding walls, new fixtures, running electric elsewhere, etc. All of these things should be discussed with your contractor prior to day one of the remodel.

When Is The Right Time For a Bathroom Remodel?

Uncategorized

Plumber fixing the sink in a bathroom  Before you ever consider a remodel of any kind, especially in a bathroom, it is important to answer a few questions. Bathroom remodels do not have to cost an arm and leg, and sometimes all your bathroom needs is a soft update. TrustBilt of Albuquerque, New Mexico helps customers answer questions daily about their remodeling needs, such as “When is the right time for a bathroom remodel?”

High Traffic Areas Demand Remodeling More Frequently

As you already know, the bathroom in your home is considered a high traffic area. Bathroom remodels are commonly needed every fifteen-twenty years. Why is that the case? Any room that consists of a water source like a bathroom, often encounters wear and tear earlier than other rooms in your home. Moisture causes earlier breakdown, and more often than not, once a leak has been detected, it is too late to salvage existing materials. This is mainly due to mold and mildew damage that begins within 24-48 hours after water damage occurs.

If You Need a ROI, the Bathroom is a Great Place to Start!

Homeowners who want to earn a return on investment (RIO) understand the importance of a bathroom remodel. If you plan on selling your home, a bathroom remodel can help immensely. Buyers constantly look at bathrooms and kitchens to see if they will fit their needs. If the bath is outdated, dingy and contains inadequate lighting, it can cause a negative mark that will be hard for you to sell. Owners always make their money back on a good bathroom remodel.

Functionality Is Necessary For the Long Term

If your bathroom is dysfunctional or not meeting your family needs, and you know you are going to stay in your home for a long time, then a bathroom remodel is necessary. Making a bathroom functional can be very affordable when you consult with one of our remodeling specialist. We offer an array of options that meet just about any budget.

Damage Repair is Top Priority

If your bathroom has encountered water damage, chances of damage spreading to the rest of your home is very realistic. Damage can render your home unsafe and also cause instability in your homes foundation. Once damage goes unchecked, you can be talking about huge repair bills. That is why it is always important to make repairs right away, safeguarding your investment. Many folks choose to update when damage occurs.
