Home improvements can be tricky, but one area that experts agree on is the kitchen. In addition to making a home more attractive and more functional, a high-quality kitchen project can increase the value of the home significantly enough to pay for itself.
If you don’t plan to stay in your home indefinitely, there’s another strategic reason to consider remodeling the kitchen: new home builders tend to spend more heavily in their kitchens and bathrooms than in any other rooms in the home. With a newly updated kitchen, your home can compete attractively with new construction in your area.
Not all kitchen remodels are created equal, however. Poor planning or over-spending can actually reduce your home’s competitive position in the marketplace, and can reduce the return on your home improvement investment.
That’s why your first priority should be to work with a professional, experienced residential construction contractor on kitchen remodels. NW Finishing and General Construction has more than a decade of residential construction experience in King and Pierce counties. We know what makes a home attractive to live in, and what home buyers are looking for.
Our experienced design professionals can create a range of options for your new kitchen. We take the time to learn what you want and need from your home, and create designs that improve the appearance and function of one of the most important rooms in your home.
For example, custom cabinets can significantly improve the value of your home. Most new construction builders use lower-grade or off-the-shelf cabinetry. These cabinets wear faster and perform poorly over time because they’re built from lower-grade materials. Custom cabinets offer better construction and durability, and open a wide range of decorating options for your home. Further, they are unique to your home. They’ll work well for you, and when it comes time to sell, they’ll attract buyers who recognize the inherent value they bring to the home.

Homeowners often ask whether a remodeled bathroom can return significant value to a home. In a hot housing market, experts agree that bathroom remodeling can provide an excellent return, and give a home a competitive advantage. In the Northwest, upscale remodeling projects are delivering excellent returns.
The bathroom is one of the most demanding spaces in a home, and it requires regular maintenance and upkeep. While proper plumbing and ventilation are essential, bathrooms also need regular renewal to keep them healthy, fresh and attractive.
Bathrooms that are attached to the master bedroom – or even en suite – are high on buyers’ wish lists. Walk in showers, green projects that lower water consumption, and the use of upscale materials like stone can also significantly improve the impact of a bathroom remodeling project.
Rising new home prices in the Pacific Northwest present an opportunity for homeowners to take advantage of changes in the home selling market. Even if you don’t plan to sell your home, taking the time to update key areas of your home will increase its value and make your home easier to sell when it comes time to move.
Bathroom remodeling also provides an opportunity to rethink designs that may prevent you from truly enjoying your home. A well-planned remodeling project can increase floor space, correct initial design issues, improve appearance or function, correct or add ventilation, eliminate prior water damage, enhance insulation and improve lighting. These changes can actually reduce your home’s annual operating costs by reducing energy and water consumption.
NW Finishing and General Construction specializes in planning and delivering exceptional bathroom remodeling projects. Whether you’re refreshing the master bathroom, adding a powder room or rehabilitating a guest bathroom, we guarantee that you’ll be satisfied with the results.

High quality flooring makes a difference in the appearance, function and value of your home. Today’s homeowners want durable flooring options that improve the appearance of their home and hold their value.
Without a doubt, solid hardwood flooring is the premier choice for homeowners. It’s gorgeous, practical and it’s a true value powerhouse. Some solid hardwood flooring installations can actually return as much as twice their cost. In other words, potential buyers will pay you to install hardwood flooring!
If you have solid hardwood floors in your home already, refinishing them should be part of any remodeling plan. If you (or a previous homeowner) covered your solid hardwood floors with carpet to save on maintenance, it’s time to think about ditching the carpet and refinishing your floors. Even if they’re dull, scratched or damaged, they can be repaired, restored and returned to their natural brilliance. In addition, hard woods are naturally warm to the touch. They feel good to walk on, and they’re easy to maintain.
Hardwood floors offer an added benefit if you have seasonal allergies. They can help you stay on top of dust, dirt and pollens that tend to hang around in carpets. They also won’t retain odors the way carpets can.
Other flooring products, like stone, tile, engineered hardwoods, cork, wood-look ceramic tiles, vinyl and laminates offer exciting, cost-effective options for homeowners considering a remodeling project. Whatever your preferred flooring material is, NW Finishing and General Construction can help.
Our flooring professionals can design and install the perfect floor to complement your remodeling project. We offer many options to choose from. If you’re thinking about replacing the flooring in your home, or you’re considering new floors as part of a larger remodeling project, call the remodeling experts at NW Finishing and General Construction at (253) 797-5834 to set up a no-cost, no-obligation consultation.
