The Value of Design

You can’t stand it any longer. You could be the typical home owner, thinking about remodeling your home for several years and you decided to pull the trigger. There is an anxiousness for some and anxiety for others. The cost? Who can I trust? Where do I go? The overwhelming insurmountable task at hand. There is an enjoyable method to creating your new home achieving not only a level of sanity but an end result that will improve the quality of your life. This is why I do this for a living. I enter a clients life for what seems like an eternity to them but really is a microscopic blip in time. Those that follow are left with a better life. Sound nice? If you don’t use what’s between your ears then look in the mirror when you

An Executives guide to remodeling your home.

Try searching for “steps to a successful remodel” and see how many sites there are to visit. It’s overwhelming, all over the map. While compiling this guide I’m making a few assumptions. You don’t have time to waste, want the framework to pursue a project, find the right person to do the work and quality is more important than budget. If this fits then you’ll find this guide helpful, if not then back to Google and search for “Steps to a miserable remodeling experience”.

Design
Do not under estimate the value of design and be prepared to invest in it. Quality starts here. You must have a completed set of drawings and specifications in order to build a quality project on time. It’s no different then any

Saratoga Ranch Home Remodel

Saratoga Ranch Goes Under The Knife.

The re-creation of this typical rancher in Saratoga, California began with the homeowner’s clear and succinct vision.  A professional team comprised of a Silicon Valley High Tech Executive and advocate for a National Non-Profit, our clients were on a focused path to achieve their dream home.  Collecting and assembling the thoughts and ideas for a large scale remodel project can be so overwhelming and daunting that some just give up.  Not these busy professionals.  An emerging website at the time came to the rescue http://www.houzz.com/.  Here our clients discovered the style Modern Prairie and built upon that as we planned the project.  Not only did this site provide tools to capture and share their

Silver Creek San Jose Kitchen Remodel

Silver Creek family up the quality of their kitchen and entertainment. Setting at the base of the Silicon Valley foothills is a community called Silver Creek many of the homes were built in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s and represent a contemporary track style home.  Clearly leaps and bounds from the original track boom of the 1960’s and 1970’s but one fact remains, builders just don’t invest in quality design and materials.  This home was no exception and the owners set their sights on remodeling this kitchen to bring the quality from a 5 to a 10. Here are the goals that were quickly outlined by our client and the team at RemodelWest went to work. As you can see this “vanilla” kitchen was just that…

Master Suite Addition Bathroom Remodel Los Altos

Two Bathrooms & Master Suite Addition Los Gatos

RemodelWest completed this Los Gatos project in April. Homeowners’ goals were to add on to the back of the house to make more room for a master suite, and completely remodel the master and hall bathrooms.

The Hall Bathroom was designed with a cool, “beachy” feel in mind. A white field tile with a light turquoise, iridescent decorative tile was used in the shower/tub area. Wainscot paneling and a homeowner selected paint color was used on the walls. This room was considered “the kids bath” for this family of four. Matching pedestal sinks and vanity cabinets were installed along with a towel rack that doubled as a towel warmer.

Los Gatos Bathroom Remodel

Two Bathroom Remodels in Los Gatos

RemodelWest recently completed this two bathroom remodeling project up in the hills between Saratoga and Los Gatos.With a beautiful view, winding rode up to the driveway and a recently updated outdoor entertainment area, these homeowners were in desperate need of a facelift for their two bathrooms.
The hall bathroom was primarily used for guests and also had access to the outdoor pool area. The layout didn’t need much of a change; the materials would be the major adjustment in this bathroom. The original design consisted of tiled walls closing in the shower area. Designer Sarah Spiroff planned for a glass shower enclosure to really open up the space and a bench seat for added comfort.
