Lighting Designs that Work Best in any Remodel!

Living room in new construction home with fireplace

No one needs to be an interior designer or decorator to know the importance of indoor lighting. Proper lighting helps maximize the full use of your home. The trend in home design is the multi-purpose use of each room while keeping the GREEN concept intact. When selecting appropriate lighting, look for something that complements the décor without being obtrusive. Indoor lighting should always provide sufficient visibility for every task. More homes are now using natural light as their primary indoor light source. Frankly, this means selecting high-performance lighting for cloudy days or after dark, and that can be a bit more challenging. At TrustBilt of Albuquerque, NM, we offer remodeling design ideas for lighting to help our customers benefit from as much natural light as possible.

Lighting up Your Living Space

Rooms that serve as gathering places in your home and that host multifunctional activities such as a media center, conversation cubbies, reading chairs, home art collections, etc., need particular attention. Recessed down-lights are most effective in drawing attention to the fireplace and removing visual clutter. Use a bar of dimmer switches with small lights for portraits, and sculptures that can also be lowered to accommodate a media screen, televisions, and computers. Freestanding lamps prevent glare and are the perfect match for your family bookworm. Illuminate your game tables with a 36- inch pendant lamp hanging above the activity area, making sure you consider efficient headroom.

Remember the Kitchen

Other than the living room area, the kitchen is the other most important room in your entire house. If your kitchen is a gathering place for family or friends, cooking and just sitting for long chats, your lighting requirements will be diverse. Under-cabinet lighting should be located in the front part of the cabinet, making it less visible and more efficient. Recessed lighting is a perfect match for over the sink and stove area. It supplies high focused light and yet stays out of the way. For a romantic dinner setting. We also suggest using a pendant dimmer light over your kitchen nook.

Regardless of what your lighting needs are, today you have more options than ever before! At TrustBilt of Albuquerque New Mexico, we take pride in offering remodeling services and lighting ideas to all of our customers. Did you know that you can also choose different hues of lighting and use the warm light vs. a bright lighting effect? Whatever you do, remember that in selecting the right lighting for your home, it is important to find something that fits your lifestyle and personality. Have fun!

Have You Ever Been Over Your Head in a Remodel?

Uncategorized

over your head

Almost any homeowner has experienced the woes of attempting a remodel without any experience under the belt. What initiates an unexpected remodel usually happens when a water pipe burst or when mold is discovered. For instance, the molded portion of the bath is ripped out and then the idea surfaces to do a remodel since the bath is all but unusable. Eventually, days turn into weeks and weeks into months, and for some, years begin to pile up waiting of the repair or remodel to be completed. Have you ever been over your head in a remodel? At TrustBilt LLC of Albuquerque, New Mexico, we offer some good reasons why you should leave a remodel up to the pros!

Plumbing Can Be Intimidating

Now, we understand that a minor plumbing job can be done by someone not in the trade. This could involve changing a gasket in a faucet, unclogging a sink or toilet, or replacing a pipe under the sink. However, when it comes to moving water lines and pipes around the room or installing new lines, you are better off having a licensed plumber take on the tasks. For one, they work more efficiently, have the right tools, and if anything goes wrong, they handle it. Using a professional plumber to set up your water pipes and sewer system will save you a bundle of money in the end, while offering you a piece of mind.

Electrical Work Isn’t for the Novice

There are many things that do it yourself amateurs can attempt to do but electrical installation is not one of them. As savvy as a handyman that you might be, electrical work can cost your life if approached without knowledge. At TrustBilt, we use only licensed electrical professionals to ensure that any electrical wires and moving of electrical service is accomplished safely and that your home is protected from any danger. An open wire can cause injury and also cause a catastrophe. Safety is the first thing on our list when it comes to our customers and our employees.

Tiling, Painting, and Installing Floor Can Be Gruesome

In reality, once you are ready to paint, tile or install flooring, it is time to be realistic with yourself. After prepping a room, you want to make sure that the final result after all of the work looks professional and will last for years to come. Some DIY paint jobs are quite remarkable! However, most people are clueless on how to smooth out a wall or add texture. Also, the stroking of the paintbrush or roller can be a game changer if it leaves behind lines and blemishes afterward. How about unique painting techniques such as glazing or other applications that you would like to add to your project? That’s not something an amateur can pull off quickly. Tiling is another challenge that a novice should never try to do. Though the principle of tiling is pretty straight forward, cutting, lining it up and ensuring that the patterns are cohesive takes a professional eye. Installing flooring also requires an eye that is keen on troubleshooting issues that will cause problems down the road such as floor leveling and product knowledge.
