New Season, New Possibilities - Spring projects


April 3, 2019

Spring is finally upon us in the Denver metro area and with it brings warmer weather, cheerier moods, and the possibility of new projects on the horizon. If you’re one of those homeowners that dreads the idea of taking on any new construction project during the winter months of the year, now is your time to start planning for new possibilities with your home, as the warmer weather can provide many reasons to think about remodeling your home. With that in mind, here is what spring can have in the forecast for your Denver home.

New Season, New Possibilities

One of the most enjoyable aspects of the spring season is the fact that plants and other lifeforms are coming back to life, either out of a dormant state, hibernation, or migrating back from warmer areas. Indeed, spring brings with it plenty of new possibilities for you and your Denver home, and it’s certainly a perfect time to start thinking about what you would like to change about your property.

One of the biggest downsides to taking on an extensive project during the winter months is that you will have to reckon with mother nature, as a winter snowstorm can provide a serious inconvenience to both you and your family and the contractor tasked with the project. If you are one to want to stick to strict timelines with your remodeling project, it’s best to wait until warmer months to begin, as winter weather can cause plenty of delays to your project. Contractors may have delay their work until weather permits, extending the time period where your home will be in a transition state. 

Be Inspired by Natural Light

Perhaps one of the most underappreciated aspects of your home is the way in which it lets in the sunlight to your home. This design element is becoming more and more popular as the years go by, as people begin to recognize how important the sunlight is to overall health and one’s mood. Even in Colorado, it can be easy to forget just how crucial the sun is to your outlook on life and how you feel about the world.

Springtime is a great time to take on a new project for this reason, as you will have a good idea of how much light will be entering the interior spaces of your home. If you have an idea of having a new window or space with natural light, you’ll be able to get a better sense of the light that will flow into your space during this time frame.

Here’s a Few Unique Sink Options to Consider for Your Denver Home’s Next Kitchen Remodel


March 27, 2019

When it comes to your Denver home’s kitchen, one of the most used and important aspects of the environment is the kitchen sink. Undoubtedly, a sink and basin will be used as much as your stove, probably more if you have many people in your home who like to cook and will need to clean up after themselves. A sink doesn’t need to be just an average, boring selection, as it can also be a way to showcase your unique personality. With that in mind, here are a few interesting sink options to consider for your next kitchen remodel project. 

The Farmhouse Sink
Although your home is likely located in an urban environment, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a farmhouse sink installed in your Denver home. This style, also referred to as an apron sink, extends over the edge, give you maximum washing space and the comfort of knowing your counter won’t be full of water after you’re finished washing your dishes. In addition to their functional qualities, farmhouse sinks also offer homeowners a perfect way to spruce up their kitchen environment and provide a rustic charm that simply can’t be matched by dull, standard sink fare.

Undermount Sink
This particular type of sink is installed directly under the counter, providing a versatile and seamless washing basin, allowing you to rest easy knowing you have ample amount of room to wash your dishes after a large meal with family. Sink cleanup with this particular type of sink is minimal, as all debris from dishes will not catch on the sides. This will save you time and make the chore of washing dishes not as daunting or unpleasant. 

Corner Sink
An underappreciated and underutilized style choice, this particular sink option offers homeowners a way to transform and awkward corner into the best functional choice they could make. Having a long amount of counter space can be advantageous, depending on how your like to prepare food. Often, sinks separate kitchen counters into two distinct spaces where you will be able to place dishes or prep your meal. Many people may prefer a corner sink style choice because of how it opens up their kitchen prep spaces. However, if you plan to have this particular sink installed in your Denver home, it’s important to note that installation costs can be particularly high, as you may need to have a specific cut made in order to fit the sink in the corner of your kitchen.

Tips for Your Next Basement Finishing Project in Denver


March 20, 2019

Are you and your family thinking about having your basement finished? There are a number of important steps you need to take prior to taking on a project of this scope, as you will inevitably run into obstacles which will make the success of your project in jeopardy. You certainly don’t want to have to deal with unfortunate circumstances continuing to cause headaches or, worse, regret after you finish your project. That’s why it’s essential to have all of your ducks in order before beginning an extensive home remodeling project in your Denver property.

Think About All Possibilities Before Deciding on a Design

Are you thinking of having your property significantly upgraded this spring with a brand new finished basement? Here’s an important tip: think about all of the possibilities before you end up deciding on a design plan. Doing extensive research and exploring all of the possibilities will allow you to rest easy once your project is complete, as you won’t spend your days wondering if your basement could have been different. If you are working with an experienced contractor who knows what would work well with your space, they will be able to fully walk you through all of the possibilities in order to allow you to make the most informed choice possible.

Plan Around Your Budget, But Have Flexibility

Do you have a very strict budget in mind for your Denver home’s basement finishing project? You’re on the right track to having a successful project by having a solid number in mind prior to a contractor starting the job. However, if you want to ensure the success of a project going the way you would like, it’s important to consider having a small surplus available in order to provide enough wiggle room in the event of unplanned circumstances.

Get a Handle on Potential Problems Ahead of Time

Does your basement have moisture issues which continue to rear their head for you whenever you are in the environment? It’s critical to get a handle on these type of issues prior to beginning an extensive remodeling project. Moisture can bring issues such as mold, mildew, and other health concerns which certainly take precedence over any other design issues you may be thinking about. Prior to beginning the project, be sure you address this type of issue or any other structural issues which may be present. You certainly don’t want to spend all of your budget on cosmetic changes only to realize that you will need to spend a lot of money on structural issues.

Why a Deck May Be in the Cards for Your Denver Home this Spring


March 14, 2019

Winter has continued to drag on in the Denver metro area, as consistent snow storms and cold weather have left a lot of the population yearning for spring time to arrive. With warmer weather can come visions of bbqs and time spent outside, as the feeling of being cooped up in one’s home can drive a person to want to spend a lot of the springtime outside. One great way of spending time outside is to do so on your brand new deck, a space which can offer you unparalleled experiences when it comes to spending time outdoors. There’s nothing quite as iconic as grilling outside in the summertime. 

Increases the Value of Your Home

Outside of the obvious reasons for why you would want to have a new deck installed in your Denver home are the fact that this project would significantly add value to your home. A home which has a new deck will be much more attractive to potential buyers if you are intending to sell your property in the near future. Most experts agree that a deck can actually provide you with 100% return on your investment, as you’ll receive all of the value back in the amount of money your home will increase in value as a result of the project. If you’re trying to see a return on your investment, there’s no safer bet than to add a deck to your home.

Increase Your Hosting Ability

If it’s the summertime and you don’t have a deck, you may feel like there’s something seriously lacking at your property. Not being able to comfortably unwind outside with friends and family on your deck is something you will seriously miss. Decks provide a much less claustrophobic environment to entertain guests in than most interior rooms. The possibility of spills damaging your floors and other mishaps are greatly lessened when you are entertaining guests outside. Add a grill into the mix and you’re definitely going to be glad you decided to take the step of having a deck installed at your home.

Revision the Look of Your Home

Outside of building an addition to your home or finishing your basement, a new deck can provide you and your family with a great way to revision the look of your home. A new deck can provide you with the perfect canvas to unleash your creative juices and make your home your own. It will increase the possibilities when it comes to spending time with loved ones, and can ultimately transform your home for the better.

Why Spring Can be The Perfect Time for a New Kitchen in Your Denver Home


March 6, 2019

The spring time in Denver is a wonderful time of year for many people, especially individuals who are not big winter sports fans. Sure, winter in Denver is mild in comparison to a large part of the country, but it’s still a time of rebirth and opportunity for growth. This is true both of the plants and of your home, as spring can be the perfect time to consider remodelling your Denver home’s kitchen. What better time to bring in the onset of warm and desirable weather with the addition and upgrade of your home’s kitchen? Here are some of the most important factors to consider when it comes to remodeling your Denver home’s kitchen in the springtime. 

Cookouts are Just Around the Corner

Sure, a lot of BBQ’s in the spring and summer may happen in your preferred Denver park, but there’s a good chance a large percentage of them will be happening in your home’s backyard. You’ll want to have your grill all set to go, but you will also want to consider having your kitchen in pristine condition, as a large part of the prep work will be taking place in this part of your home. 

Upgrading your kitchen during this time can make the backyard BBQ a breeze, and will allow you to no longer feel like your kitchen is a place to be avoided. There’s nothing worse than inviting guests into your home and feeling like you have to guide them away from certain parts of your house out of shame and embarrassment. Spring can be a great time to consider upgrading your home’s most important space, and can offer a large amount of creative frameworks to work within. 

Easier Access, Less Mess

Let’s be clear on this one: a kitchen remodel will absolutely include a mess, as you will be tearing out cabinets, tearing up the floor, and moving a large part of the existing structure and layout around. But a kitchen remodeling project doesn’t also need to include a large amount of mud, snow, and other factors being tracked into your home, as it certainly can happen with the presence of snow on the ground. Waiting until spring will allow contractors to easily move in and out of your home without also having to worry about constantly tracking in snow and mud from the outdoors. Your home will be full of many moving parts during this time, so why also involve mud and snow in the process?

If you are in need of basement finishing services, or have other remodeling needs in your home, contact Ridgeline Design and Build today for more information. We are happy to help you find the best design plan that fits both your budget and your desired outcome. Our trained associates will answer any question you may have regarding the remodeling process and help you determine the design that makes the most sense for your situation.
