Benefits of having Window Blinds and Window Shutters

Window coverings are a great addition to beautify your home windows. They’re affordable and come in a variety of styles, colors, and patterns which can create a nice ambiance mood to the room that you’re looking for. Window coverings can improve your home’s privacy, help manage sunlight, and boost its energy efficiency. At Quality Interior Finishing, we explain how installing blinds and shutters can benefit you:

Window Shutters.

Window shutters offer many benefits over the traditional window furnishing option. Due to their bespoke finish, shutters can be made to fit almost any window or special shape. Many window shutters also come with a latch or lock to keep them secure. This provides an extra measure of security for your windows. Shutters are popular to homeowner’s due to the control of the amount of air and sunlight coming into your room, keeping you cool in the Summer and warm in Winter.

Window Blinds

Just like shutters, Window Blinds share many benefits but they differ in terms of design and material. Unlike other window treatments, Blinds are long lasting and do not tear away like the curtains do after a few months. They are simple to clean and don’t require much maintenance. The Faux wood blinds are both good and affordable options to complement best your traditional wooden interiors. Other blind materials are aluminum, plastic, bamboo, normal wood and many others.

If you’re looking to upgrade your home interior, consider hiring Quality Interior Finishing to help and design that perfect room attire that you’ve been looking for!

 

How to prepare for a remodel

If you are looking to remodel your Kitchen or bathroom, you may want to consider planning before calling your local contractor. A typical project takes around 4-8 weeks for completion so, if you have plans in between, you may want to hold it out for a while. Here are other things homeowners should do and consider beforehand to make the remodeling process easier to manage.

Scheduling your remodeling project.

Timing is critical when planning your renovation project. If you have kids, you may want to start the project in Fall when they go back to school.

Kitchen Remodels.

When we work in the kitchen, our team moves the refrigerator, coffeepot, microwave into a smaller area so that it is still functional for homeowner’s everyday use. We recommend preparing prepped meal or microwave food from time to time as ordering takeout can be pricey.

Think about Pets

Keeping your pets safe is a priority when working on remodeling. With doors always opening and closing, it’s easy for pets to escape and tools in the house can be a hazard for curious pets. Plan and think about doggie daycare, a crate, or a friend who can take of them for a while.

Protect your furniture and clear a path.

Before our team gets started, we sheet off areas and do our best to minimize and contain dirt and dust during construction. Another way to speed up the process, customers can start removing pictures from walls and cover furniture’s that lead to rooms that need to be remodeled.

Design tips before remodeling your bathroom

There is so much to consider when remodeling your kitchen. Unless you have a working knowledge of what to expect and what to consider, this can take a while when planning everything out. Fortunately, we have come up with a cheat sheet for you to consider.

  1. Bathroom remodels costs. Before you even start your research and dialing your local contractor, it’s important for you to know how much you can afford, as high-quality materials and the size of the bathroom can quickly add up.
  2. First Impression. Ask any bathroom designers and they will tell you the same thing. The first impression is very important when you enter a bathroom, and the first thing you do not want to see is a toilet because it’s not exactly aesthetically pleasing thing to look at. What should you make the focal point? Anything other than a toilet.
  3. By adding ambient and decorative lighting to the bathroom can make the best features stand out.
  4. Corner Sink. A great way not many homeowners think about when creating more space is a corner sink. A corner sink will free up space that you need to make the bathroom appear bigger.
  5. Or covert your tub into a shower. Ask yourself, when was the last time you had a bath? A bathtub takes up most of the space. Converting would be cost-effective because it makes use with space already there and there’s no need to reroute the plumbing.s
  6. Be selective with high-end materials. The bathroom is usually smaller spaces, so spending on a few higher-end materials and finishes can really make an impact to your bathroom.

How to Avoid Common Kitchen Mistakes

No matter who is designing the kitchen, it all falls down to the same concern for contractors. Not understanding the kitchen design basics can cause trouble when remodeling your kitchen. Quality Interior Finishing has come up with these common mistakes homeowners make when remodeling your own kitchen.

Ignoring the kitchen triangle. “The work triangle – sink, refrigerator, and stove”. Convenience is key to having an efficient kitchen. You should be aiming to keep all work stations near the cook not walking all the way around the island to grab something out of the refrigerator. The triangle should be respected and carefully designed.

Forgetting about function. People get too eager to finish up their project that they forget to test out other functions first. A common mistake we often see is homeowners buying a refrigerator that opens the wrong side and clashes with their cabinets.

Not keeping up with the times. Upgrading your kitchen is a big investment, you want to make sure that the room looks clean and modernized. If you have anything that is 10 years or older that is clashing with your kitchen, it’s time to remove it. Nobody wants to see a beautiful kitchen ruined by a half working stove. It just takes away all the effort been put into the kitchen.

Not being prepared with the unexpected cost. We get it. You’re already investing big in the kitchen, you want everything to be right so you will be all set for the future. We recommend overestimating everything that you plan to buy, that way, if you are below the budget, you will have the money to spend on small appliances that may need an upgrade.

Remodeling a kitchen can be stressful. An advice we always like to share with our clients is to make a list of wants and must have. This way you can break down what you really need that is within your budget. For more information about our services please feel free to get in touch and contact us at (781) 344-2433.

Benefits of Hiring a Professional to Remodel your Kitchen

So you’ve made the decision on how you would like your kitchen to look and now you are having thoughts on whether you should do it yourself, hire a professional, or ask that someone you know “who’s worked on kitchens before”.  Kitchen installation requires a lot of experience and commitment. We explain why it is important for homeowners to understand the difference of hiring a professional to remodel your kitchen than doing it yourself. Remodeling a kitchen needs a lot of time and experience to get what you are looking for.

Increase the Value of the Home. Hiring a professional designer can help you avoid any costly mistakes. If you plan on selling your home in the future, DIY jobs can cause uncertainties on whether the job was done correctly. Having a kitchen done by a professional can boost confidence to your home’s value.

Save Yourself the Time and Stress. When working with a contractor, you’re able to schedule your time and availability that best suits you. Another benefit with an experienced contractor is that they have long-lasting relationships with suppliers or manufacturers a homeowner will never have. Doing it yourself may leave you not being able to complete the job, however, a contractor will have a scheduled time to follow and will get the job done in a timely manner.

Materials. Unless you know which materials to use and where to get the price from. You could be wasting a lot of time doing research. If a specific material is more expensive than you first anticipated, a professional contractor will be able to produce a variety of options for you to choose from.

A professional contractor will reduce a lot of time and stress if you do it yourself. Consider hiring Quality Interior Finishing.
