Dean’s expertise extends much beyond that of just contracting. During the remodeling of my commercial retail store, Dean provided great interior design suggestions, was prompt, finished work on time, and went above and beyond to provide advice throughout the remodeling process. He knows of the best places around with quality products at great prices. He also has a deep supporting team including interior designers and contractors. I was able to work with Ryan and highly recommend his work. Both Dean and Ryan are knowledgeable, experienced, professional, and just all around good guys. I would definitely recommend and use again!

Think Out-of-the-Box for Valentine’s Day

Let’s face it — women usually have big expectations for Valentine’s Day, so men are on the hot seat when it comes to meeting or exceeding them. What about a romantic dinner at a swanky restaurant? OK, but certainly not overly creative. The same goes for traditional gifts like flowers (that quickly die) or chocolates (that can end up as unwanted weight). What’s a man to do? At Authentic Designs & Remodeling, we suggest thinking out-of-the-box to give your significant other a gift that may not scream “romantic,” but will melt her heart anyway —and be a lasting reminder of your thoughtfulness. Any longed-for home improvement might do the trick, but the three recommendations below may result in the biggest swoons. Walk-in Closet Men might be partial to “man caves,” but women do love their closets, and the bigger the better. Where else to put all those shoes? If your love is a clotheshorse who frequently laments the size of her closet, and your home has the requisite space, this is an ideal Valentine’s Day gift. Today’s walk-in closets are often like small rooms, featuring shelves, drawers, customized shoe storage and plenty of space for clothing to hang. Your significant other will be delighted to participate in the design process to make the new closet work perfectly for her — and over the moon when the remodel is complete. As an added benefit, when you sell your home, you’ll earn a huge return on investment, possibly even more than you spent. Ample closet space is high on any homebuyer’s wish list. Updated Kitchen Another remodel that will thrill your significant other and add value to your home is an updated kitchen. Whether you choose to merely purchase new appliances or go for a completely new look, you’ll get oohs and ahs from your love when you present this untraditional Valentine’s Day gift. Most real estate professionals will tell you the number one thing you can do to maximize your home’s financial value is keeping the kitchen as modernized as possible. When you can thrill your significant other at the same time, it’s a true win-win. Let her speak with a designer about her needs: more counter space, more storage space, more open space, etc. This is definitely a gift that keeps on giving. Updated Bathroom Like the closet and kitchen updates, this is a remodel that’s a home value adder. You can do something as simple as replacing the fixtures to make a bathroom look more modern, adding a second sink in a master bath or doing a total teardown to build a spa-like bathroom. Your love’s heart will go pitter-patter when you unveil this gift on Valentine’s Day. One recent trend in this space is water-saving features, something especially important in California, so you can do good for the planet while earning big points from the gift recipient. Even better, these features often pay for themselves within the first year or two, depending on your average water bill. The time is short to choose the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for the one you love. We hope our untraditional recommendations are food for thought, and if you have questions about any of these projects, please contact us.

Is This the Year You Install a Wine Cellar?

If you're holding wine to drink sometime in the future, you have a wine cellar. While the words "wine cellar" conjure up thoughts of underground caverns, a wine cellar is any space dedicated to storing wine; a popular location is in or adjacent to the kitchen, but other alternatives include basements, rooms too small to be bedrooms, spaces under staircases, and garages.

Many different types of wine cellars exist, ranging from vast spaces storing thousands of bottles to small cupboards with a few wines. One thing all wine cellars have in common is their purpose—to keep wine in an ideal environment for future enjoyment. If you love wine, perhaps 2016 is the year you install a wine cellar in your home. Need more convincing? Vinote, a New Zealand company offering a range of products that provide a simple way to locate and track bottles in wine cellars, listed a number of benefits to having a wine cellar in the article, Why Start a Wine Cellar? Which of them resonates with you? Pleasure Having a wine cellar allows you to experience the pleasure of owning and managing your own selection of wines. You may enjoy visiting old (wine) friends in the cellar and be excited when a stored wine is opened. In addition, you gain: The happiness associated with maintaining an accurate and effective wine inventory and the fun of selecting a wine, knowing it will be easily retrieved. The pleasure of sharing and showing your wine cellar to visitors. Convenience The convenience of selecting a suitable wine for any occasion and producing it with ease and aplomb is only available to those who have a well-stocked wine cellar. Very few wine cellars can provide this level of performance for every occasion, but the objective is well worth aiming for and when achieved is very satisfying. Saving Money There's no doubt that money can be saved by having a wine cellar. You save money when you buy by the case, especially when good wine is offered at discounted prices. You save gas and time when you avoid driving to the store to satisfy an immediate need for a bottle. Profitability While making money from the storage of wine is a dream of many that's fully possible, it is seldom the prime reason for starting a home wine cellar. However, the knowledge gained by building up a wine collection can lead to the confidence needed to successfully buy and later sell wine for a profit. In addition, having a wine cellar may also increase the value of your property. If you’re ready to add a wine cellar to your home, contact us at Authentic Designs & Remodeling, Inc. to discuss the possibilities. Bottoms up!
