Floating Vanity Bathroom

The floating vanity is gradually becoming very popular with today’s modern design trends.  The appeal to the modern floating vanity is the modern “minimalist” look combined with the desire for more open floor space.

Floating vanities can be done to fit any desired look or style from rough and rustic to ultra modern and minimalist.  Although predominantly seen in the more modern designs, floating vanities are being seen, more and more, in more traditional and rustic home designs.  There are advantages and disadvantages to using a floating vanity in your bathroom remodel.  One advantage is opening up floor space.  Another, by opening up that floor space, it makes it much easier to clean the floors.  Less rick of water damage due to a leaky toilet or tub/shower.  We all know that kids, and some adults, can be careless with the water in a tub.  It splashes or spills over the edge or runs out during a shower and can damage a traditional floor mounted cabinet.  One disadvantage, and probably the number one reason that some people don’t use a floating vanity, is that they typically will limit the storage capability of the cabinet.  Many bathrooms are fairly small and storage for toiletries is at a premium.  But there are those homeowners that are more interested in the design aspect over the storage ability.

Floating Vanity Bathroom

Floating vanities can also be a design focal point of the bathroom.  Much like a custom shower or tub, a floating vanity, if done well, can sometimes steal the show.  Whether you are looking for the super modern look or the more rough and rustic look, a floating vanity may be right up your alley!  There are lots of images and ideas available online these days…  But, if you are serious about remodeling your bathroom space and are interested in using a floating vanity, contact FHR Construction.  We have designers available to assist you in the design of your bathroom space and can help you come up with the best solution for your needs and desired style.

Guide to Hiring a General Contractor

So, you are thinking about doing a home remodeling project, but not comfortable doing it yourself?  Here are some things to take into consideration when looking to hire a home remodeling General Contractor.

General Contractor

First thing to understand is that this is not going to be a very fast process, if done properly.  Be prepared to spend some time doing research and checking referals on any General Contractors that you may be considering.  The first thing that you should do is ask around to your family and friends or co-workers if there is a General Contractor that they have used for any of their home remodeling projects.  Personal referals are a great way to help you find a good, honest and reliable General Contractor for your home remodel project.  Sadly, there are a lot of bad contractors out there.  You hear about it all of the time in the news.  There are even television programs devoted to finding bad contractors.  Take your time.  Get some referals & do some research on the internet.  Check the AZ ROC (Registrar of Contractors) and verify the license number of any and all contractors that you are talking with and/or considering to hire for your home remodeling project.  Also check the BBB (Better Business Bureau) and see if they have any complaints, what they were for and whether or not they have been resolved.

Interview

The next step is to invite them to your home or project site to meet with them and go over the scope of the project.  This will give you the opportunity to ‘get a feel’ of them, personally.  Do not be affraid to ask them about their experience, other projects that they have done, the size and scope of other projects.  Also, do not be affraid to ask for refrences.  Any good General Contractor will have absolutely no problem providing you with a list of previous clients that they have done work for, for you to contact and get refrences from.

Get a written estimate

The next step is to obtain an estimate from them for the home remodel project.  Some may give you a ‘ball-park’ number, on site.  Others may take a few days and give you a more detailed estimate.  We, at FHR Construction, provide our potential clients with a completely detailed, broken down estimate for every portion of the home remodel project.  This way, our clients know exactly what money is going to where and how much.  This way they can more easily make adjustments to their budget, if necessary.

Your house. Your rules.

Just remember, take your time.  Do not rush through the selection process of hiring a General Contractor for your home remodel.  Do the research, take your time and I promise, you will be much more happy in the end.

Patio Cooling System

A vast majority of homes in and around the Phoenix Metropolitan area have some sort of outdoor patio area.  Although a covered patio area is a nice thing to have, having one with a reliable, effective cooling system is so much better.  A properly installed, quality mist system can lower the ambient air temperature in your patio area by as much as 25-35 degrees…  That is a huge difference when it’s 110-115 degrees outside!

Patio Cooling Systems

Patio cooling systems are gaining popularity as they are becoming more affordable.  A quality patio cooling system, or mist system, will, on average, run you about $2000-$2500.  Yes there are less expensive, basic systems/kits available, but they do not perform the same as a quality, high pressure mist system.  The inexpensive DIY ‘Kits’ only cool an area by wetting it.  The higher quality, high pressure systems provide a much finer mist that actually cools the air itself, not just wetting the area.  There are also a number of ways to install a quality mist system.  Our most popular installation is to ‘conceal’ the lines within the structure.  By concealing the lines themselves, where only the nozzle itself is protruding through, it gives it a much cleaner look, almost invisible.  If your structure does not allow for such installation, we can run the lines on the exterior of the structure and they then can be painted to mach and sort fo ‘blend in’ to the the patio structure.

If you are considering an affordable, effective way to cool your patio area or are looking to add a new patio area to your home, consider a quality, high pressure mist patio cooling system from FHR Construction.  Next summer you and your friends and family can be enjoying your patio area on an entirely new level!  Gatherings, BBQ’s, pool parties, games…  Do it all in the comfort of a much cooler patio.
