Room Additions - Adding Value and Space to your Home

Magnetiks Administrator - Friday, September 17, 2010

Every family needs some extra space at one point or another. Whether it’s because a new baby’s on the way or due to other various reasons, many families need extra rooms. Instead of wasting precious time and money buying a new home, choose home remodeling and add one or more rooms to your current house. 

Why leave the house you’re already living in and are emotionally attached to when you can just add a new space? Room addition is a very cost effective way for you to swiftly increase your home’s original value and provide more space to your family.

Room additions may include bedrooms, living rooms, lounges, bathrooms, even patios or garages. Pick and choose! However, before you dive straight ahead into adding rooms, take time to plan ahead financially and practically. This way, you‘ll avoid any unseen expenses or issues with your brand “new” and bigger home.

In The Woodlands, Texas, The Goode Fix can help you make the room addition become a reality.  Give us a call at 832-797-0550 to get started today.

Choosing the Right Vanity for your Bathroom

Magnetiks Administrator - Saturday, September 11, 2010

Are you wondering what vanity to choose to finish-up your bathroom remodeling project? As for any sort of remodeling, there are some factors a person should take into consideration before making a choice.

First of all, what was the purpose of this bathroom remodeling? Do you want to end up having an antique-looking restroom or one with a more modern sleek design? Secondly, think about the size of your bathroom. If it’s one big bathroom, you may want to consider a vanity with two sinks to avoid jams when more than one member of the family needs to get ready simultaneously.

But what if you have different age groups in your home? In this case, you should take into account the average height of the frequent users of this bath. If we’re talking about a group of youngsters, then choosing a durable heavy-duty vanity isn’t a bad choice at all.

If you are looking to remodel your bathroom in The Woodlands, Texas then contact us at The Goode Fix at 832-797-0550 to help you make your ideal a reality.

Tips on Building a Home Theatre

Magnetiks Administrator - Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Creating a Home Theater has become one of the hottest topics in home improvement. But unlike other home improvement projects, a home theater is an investment in personal entertainment.

Creating a home theater is not a simple task. In fact, if you are planning an elaborate system you should contact a home theater specialist who can help choose and install the system that's right for you.  Using skilled professionals, The Goode Fix can turn your media room into a custom home theater infused with your style and personality. 

Whether you are tackling a home theater project yourself or hiring a pro, it is vital to know about the different elements of home theater before investing any money.

The Evolution of Home Theater

When most people think about "watching" a movie they think of the visual image. But what really differentiates a home theater from a big screen television is the audio. This doesn't mean the picture isn't important, only that image and sound come together in home theater to create a richer experience.

The concept of a better theater experience grew from Star Wars director George Lucas' desire for a better film soundtrack. Using Dolby Laboratories sound technology, Lucasfilm accomplished that goal then turned to making the "ideal" theater environment using a technology called THX®.

Lucas then began the notion of reproducing theater-quality sound in the home. The main obstacle he faced was that movie soundtracks were mixed for the spaciousness of a cinema. Therefore, something had to be able to convert cinema sound to the smaller home theater environment.

Basic Home Theater Components

The very basic elements necessary to create a home theater are a 27" or larger television, a movie playing device, speakers, and a surround sound capable stereo receiver.

Windell Home Remodeling can convert your media room into a custom theater room with all of the bells and whistles.  Custom cabinets, built-in bar areas, staggered floors, and custom finishes are common elements that make your media room feel more like a movie theater than just a place to watch TV.  The sky is the limit in electronics options, and Windell's team of professionals handle the design and installation of all components of the home theater.

A general rule in home theater is that you get what you pay for. It is possible to put together a lower-end home theater system from scratch for under $5000. But there are some upgrades that are worth the extra money. A basic system can be upgraded by going with a larger television or projection system, Blue Ray player, six quality speakers, and a Dolby Pro Logic® or Dolby Digital® receiver.
