At Bee Window, we’re committed to introducing and providing valuable home remodeling products and services to all our many friends and clients across the Midwest. We realize that there are many reasons why our loyal customers keep coming back to us year after year for our services and products – great prices, integrity with our installation services, a wide range of product designs, our knowledge in the industry – to name just a few.
As part of our business plan, we continually promote our products and our special sales via our website and other media, but it’s always nice when we find objective, third-party sources who are talking the same message. Recently, we came across this article on the Newsmagazine Network website that discusses current trends in home remodeling.
One interesting trend is that of “aging in place,” which is the strategy “to choose products, materials and design elements that will allow baby boomers to remain in their homes” as they grow older. Tactics such as installing hand-rails in showers, living in homes with a one-floor floor plan, and using carpeting that is low and not prone to tangling (thus reducing the chances of falling while walking) are all good examples of this modern way of thinking about our living spaces.
We were also delighted to see that the article’s first point in terms of remodeling trends concerned kitchen cabinet refacing, which is something Bee has been promoting for many years now. With cabinet refacing, a home owner can simply replace the drawer and cabinet fronts to create a vibrant, new-looking kitchen without nearly the expense that comes from a complete remodel of the kitchen. Dust and construction debris is minimalized and plumbing and electrical systems are not disturbed or in-need of relocation either. Cabinet refacing is truly an efficient way to “retrofit” your home’s most important room at a considerable savings, and we recommend it heartily.
The article also mentions the trend for many home owners to take “advantage of federal and state incentives to upgrade the energy efficiency of their homes.” This scenario can play-out in many ways, one of which includes tax incentives for installing energy-efficient replacement windows – one of the mainstays in the Bee home improvement line-up for years and years. We’re glad to see that the design world is catching up to our standards after all these years in business!
