#1 Minor Kitchen Remodel

  • Updating cabinets, updating appliances, sinks and fixtures, countertops, and wood/wood look flooring.

The kitchen is like the heart of the home. Many hours and memories are made in this room so make this your #1 focus when you venture out to amp up your home. Look into different interior designers and remodeling companies to find the interior that speaks volumes to you. The flooring is also a really important aspect of the kitchen. As the room endures a lot of foot traffic and spills, if you don’t pick the right flooring then it can quickly end up looking dingy. When reflooring you want to make sure you pick a good company, like Peeks Floor Co. (find locations online).


#2 Minor Bathroom Remodel

  • Replace the tub, tile surround, flooring, toilet, sink, dated wallpaper, vanity, and fixtures.

Bathrooms play a large role in the value of your home so spend a little money and elbow-grease updating the look of your loo! Sunnyvale home remodeling contractors Hammerschmidt Construction specialize in home renovation projects and can make sure this place looks as stunning as the rest of your home.


#3 Landscaping

  • Replace dead trees and shrubs. Add seasonal plantings for pops of color.
  • Freshen up the entry by painting the front door or simply clean away spider webs and dust, add some potted plants and a welcome rug.
