Walls were removed and the ceiling was lifted to create a bright and open master bathroom.  A freestanding tub with shiplap accent wall compliments the large walk in shower.  Cabinetry was selected in a light oak to coordinate with all the other neutral selections. Large gray tile in a herringbone pattern grounds the space.  All faucets are in a matte black finish, enhancing the sophisticated lighting selections over the double vanity mirrors and the tub.

In the master bedroom, the existing brick accent wall was painted white to blend into the look and feel of the airy space.  Original large windows showcase the beautiful wooded view.  A new floor to ceiling fireplace was installed to serve as a partition between the sitting and sleeping spaces, while giving ambiance to both. White oak flooring was used throughout to tie both spaces together. Finally, another chandelier completes the cozy sitting room.

Topeka, KS (August 15, 2018) - Winston Brown Remodeling has been selected by REMODELING magazine to join the REMODELING Big50. Each year since 1986, the REMODELING Big50 inducts 50 remodeling companies that have set exceptionally high standards for professionalism and integrity through exemplary business practices, craftsmanship, and impact in their community or the industry at large. Big 50 remodelers run successful, often growing, companies of various sizes that have taken the lead in raising industry standards.


“To get a sense of how unique this status is, consider there are roughly 98,000 remodeling firms in America with paid staff,” noted Craig Webb, REMODELING’s Editor-in-Chief. “Since 1986, we have selected only about 1,600 firms. That’s just 1.6% of all the remodeling businesses in the country today.”


“We are honored to receive this distinction,” says Jake Brown, Owner of Winston Brown Remodeling. “The award recognizes excellence and leadership, and we are privileged to be named to this select group of remodelers.”


REMODELING editors, columnists, industry leaders, and companies themselves make the nominations each year. Following a lengthy evaluation and interview process, the editors select the 50 companies that exemplify the best of the industry that year, and that have something to offer other remodelers in proven practices.


This year’s Big50 includes full-services remodelers, home improvement firms, insurance restoration firms, and specialists in specific parts of the homes, such as basements, kitchens and bathrooms. Some have a history going back decades, while others are just a few years old. “There’s no single strategy here and no lack of competitors for their services,” REMODELING’s introduction to the list declares. “What Big50 firms share is a culture that celebrates employees and customer service above all.”


The Big50 awards will be presented at a dinner at the Remodelers Summit and Awards Gala on Wednesday, September 26, 2018, in New Orleans. The 2018 Big50 winners are featured in the August-September issue of REMODELING, a national trade publication read by more than 150,000 professional remodeling contractors. Longer profiles of the winners are posted on the REMODELING website, remodelingmag.com.

Budgeting for Your Home Remodel

Money. It is the driving factor in most home remodeling projects, but definitely a topic that no one really enjoys discussing. The budget conversation can make homeowners a little uncomfortable and even cause a bit of anxiety. But as you may or may not know, the expense of a remodeling job can cost a lot more than you had imagined. There are so many options for just about every aspect of the job, like cabinetry, flooring, countertop material. Each one of those categories has a vast price range, depending on your style. So in the end, it really boils down to how much do you want to invest in your home?

Instead of keeping your budget a secret through the estimate process, save yourself time and agony by sharing the amount you have decided t...

Dust Control an Essential Part of a Healthy Remodeling Environment

About 90 percent of homeowners stay in their homes during remodeling projects. Some end up regretting it.

Why? Dust, which can permeate every part of your home, from your toothbrush to your dog’s fur.

Here are a few ways you can tell whether your contractor is concerned about a livable environment during a major remodeling project, lasting six months or more.

Does the remodeler:

  • Have a dust control plan? Not just a fan in a window, but a real action plan that will assure you that dust will be contained on the worksite – not in your kitchen.
  • Use best practices as part of the plan? For example, top contractors across the country use the BuildClean Dust Control System (buildclean.com) because it takes away up to 90 percent of the airborne dust, even on the most challenging projects. They know the installation of barrier walls and use of vacuums aren’t enough.
  • Bring up dust control to you before you even ask about it? That’s another good sign. If a contracting company says it is a “clean” contractor, it’s likely you’ll hear about its dust control plan, and why it insists on using BuildClean, during one of its first meetings with you.

Dust isn’t just a nuisance. Remodeling and demolition dust can trigger asthma attacks, allergic reactions and problems for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Jobsite dust can also have an adverse effect on the health of pets that are in the home during construction. In addition, particles from sawing, scraping and sanding can ...
