Home Remodeling Finishing Touches: It’s the Little Things That Count

Home Remodeling Finishing Touches Wichita

Do you ever walk into a newly remodeled home in awe of the craftsmanship and detail? Often, those little things can transform a typical remodel into a beautiful home transformation. But what little details can you utilize to ensure a flawless remodel? Well, you’re in luck. Here are a few sections of your home that, if focused on, can get you the most out of your hard-earned time and money.


To lower costs, many remodelers use plain wooden balusters. But a fine hardwood, welded steel or forged iron baluster can turn your boring staircase into a work of art.

Front Door

As the threshold of your home, the front door is your guests’ first impression of what’s inside. So be sure to impress. Spending a little more on a custom front door will make your entryway the best on the block.

Proper Lighting Height

Proper lighting height is a science. The proper range is 30 to 34 inches from the bottom of the light fixture to the top of the table in rooms with ceilings up to 8 feet tall. Rooms taller than 8 feet require the fixture to be raised one extra inch for every additional foot of ceiling height.

Interior Doors

Many remodels are outfitted with cheap, hollow-core doors. While these can be painted or stained to look nice, they don’t give your renovation an upscale feel. Heavy, custom doors are a great touch. And they can be cheaper if ordered all together.

Door Hardware

To go along with your custom doors, you’ll need quality hardware. A quality knob and hinges can turn an already beautiful door into a masterpiece.

Dials and Switches

There are a lot of them in your home. And with how quickly technology is moving today, they can be out of date in no time. So it’s important to use the latest technology and style when updating your dials and switches.

These are just a few simple things you can do to make your remodel pop.


No one likes to spend so much time and energy on a remodel just to fall short with the details. If you need help or have any questions about distinctive finishing touches, please feel free to contact your Wichita home remodeler, Southwestern Remodeling.
