We have owned our home in southeast Fort Collins for about 35 years. It is a beautiful house, on a very special lot, and we have always strived to keep it upgraded for our comfort and to preserve the value of the property. Therefore, we have done several remodels over the years. Artisan Remodeling & Design recently finished a complete renovation of our kitchen. We are extremely happy with the results, both the quality of the work and the quality of the experience. Paul and Sarah have earned our highest rating for a recommendation. When we started this project, we knew that we wanted the majority of the project to be done while we were out of town. Trust and quality of work were the most important factors in selecting a remodeling company. Paul and Sarah are a husband and wife team that run a local, family owned business. They are wonderful, positive people that guide you through the project. We found them to be excellent problem solvers, and they demonstrated flexibility as various issues surfaced. Sarah is an excellent listener, she is patient, and she helped us create a vision for our new kitchen. She has an excellent design sense, and simplified our choices for cabinets, fixtures, furniture, and flooring. This really accelerated the project. Paul handles all the details of the job, does some of the work, and he has assembled an amazing set of sub-contractors. We were so impressed by these individuals---they were all very skilled, very detail oriented, super clean, and they were simply the nicest people that you could hope to find in your home. Lastly, since we have done several remodels over the years, it is appropriate to make some comparisons. We have always selected companies that we can trust--the highest quality companies with great reputations. These choices typically come with a high price premium. In the case of Artisan, you get a company that you can trust, quality work, and very reasonable prices. Working with Sarah and Paul was an absolute pleasure. Denise and Michael Gasparian

Artisan’s showroom is really impressive, much larger than we expected with a really wide selection. Sarah and Paul had some items pulled for us before we arrived based on our inspiration photos and design survey (which is so much fun!), and the things they chose were spot on! IHaving their guidance as we made our selections made the whole process more enjoyable and less overwhelming. The way the showroom is designed is really fun. It’s open and welcoming. Most showrooms can feel cramped and they can actually leave me feeling a little bit stressed, but Artisan’s showroom has a completely different feel. We did end up choosing many of the items they pulled for us and the remodel itself was remarkably organized. We would highly recommend Artisan!

When we were beginning our search for a bathroom remodeling company, the hardest part was knowing that we would have to let strangers into our home for the duration of the project. It was really important to us to find a company we could trust. When we met Paul, we immediately knew he was trustworthy, and his knowledge of the industry is unrivaled. And he presents it in such a friendly and personable manner so as not to talk down to the customer. We liked that. We hired him on the spot. Then we met Sarah and were really impressed by her design process and how she was able to pinpoint our exact style. When we were presented our renderings, they were so far beyond what we could have created ourselves. The job itself was organized and ran smoothly from start to finish, and we were never left with unanswered questions. Artisan is a rare find. Hire them! You won’t be sorry.

Artisan Remodeling & Design is a classy organization. We contacted them to review our kitchen for a remodel. Both Sarah and Paul have a unique niche in their company and they guarantee their work. Our decision to hire them took mere moments. Sarah provides creative, tasteful and “in the know” coaching for the design portion of our kitchen remodel. She has a feel-good presence and is genuinely interested in our likes and dislikes. Sarah offers different concepts of design: bold, classic, neutral, sophisticated, calming, FUN (should I keep going?) and samples of all. Who knew there are so many unique choices that fit our personalities? Sarah consistently kept us updated through phone calls, emails and quickly responded to any questions. Artisan is building a showroom which will provide an ambiance and personal experience with samples of tile, cabinets, lighting and design ideas. They are an upscale company that cares. Paul’s skill level is impressive. He expertly knows what to do in any situation. His calm and comfortable demeanor is so easy to work with. The project manager checks in daily, Paul and Sarah check in at least once a week. Paul has a fantastic relationship with his subcontractors. We had to say goodbye when the job was complete and it was like parting from friends. Their professionalism and experience was superior. Artisan offers three levels of pricing for their products: good, better, best. They are all quality. Both Sarah and Paul have spoken honestly from experience that often a remodel project affects (temporarily) one’s very existence. Thankfully, they provided tools to help us stay levelheaded and hold on to oneself during this WELL WORTH IT experience. We were well taken care of! The results are fit for a magazine.

We are so happy we found Paul and Artisan Remodeling. Our new kitchen is beautiful and the entire process from design to completion was incredibly smooth with no hiccups. Paul was able to understand our vision for the project and improve on it in ways we hadn’t considered. Artisan also works with great suppliers so that the finishes always feel top quality. Communication was great and we were always aware of the project status and timelines. On top of all that, they still managed to finish under our original budget. Great experience all around - highly recommend!

Frequently Asked Questions

Timelines can vary based on the project’s scale. For minor updates, it may take a few weeks. For major projects like second-story addition or whole house renovation, it may take several months to complete.

Yes, most basement remodeling projects require permits. This is a must if the construction involves structural changes, electrical work, or plumbing. At Artisan Remodeling & Design, we always obtain necessary permits from the building authority to ensure compliance with all applicable building codes.

Of course! In fact, this is one of our specialties. Minimizing the impact of low ceilings in a room requires a blend of creative design and optical illusion techniques. We often start by selecting light, airy paint colors for the ceiling. For example, soft whites or pale hues can make the ceiling appear higher. Utilizing vertical lines such as in wallpaper patterns or tall, slim furniture pieces can draw the eye upwards. These create a sense of height. Strategic lighting also plays a crucial role. Recessed lighting or low-profile fixtures avoid consuming headroom. These help distribute light evenly and make the space feel more expansive. Mirrors are another powerful tool as they reflect both natural and artificial light, adding depth and openness to the room. Lastly, keeping the space uncluttered and opting for multi-functional furniture can ensure the area feels more open and less confined. Both further reduce the impact of a low ceiling. So in a nutshell…if your ceilings are low, no worries. We have you covered. 

Before embarking on a basement remodeling project, it is essential to address any existing water damage to ensure the longevity and safety of the renovation. We will start by identifying the source of the moisture. This could range from external sources like poor drainage or foundation cracks to internal issues like leaky pipes or high humidity. Once identified, we will rectify these issues by repairing cracks, improving drainage, or installing a sump pump or dehumidifier. Next, we thoroughly dry out the area using fans and dehumidifiers to prevent mold growth. If any mold is present, we will need to thoroughly remove it, given its potential health risks. Finally, any damaged materials such as drywall, insulation, or flooring will be replaced, preferably with water-resistant alternatives. Taking these steps prior to your remodel not only safeguards your investment. These also ensure the future health and stability of your basement space.

Absolutely! In fact, there are many advantages to adding windows to your new basement. They can significantly enhance the space’s functionality and appeal. Firstly, windows introduce natural light that brightens the area as well as makes it feel more spacious and inviting. This influx of sunlight can improve mood and well-being, creating a healthier living environment. Additionally, windows provide necessary ventilation. They aid in air circulation and reduce the likelihood of mold and mildew growth. From an aesthetic standpoint, windows can transform a basement from a dim, closed-off space into an integral part of the home. They offer views and connect the indoors with the outdoors. They also increase the property’s value. Basements with natural light and ventilation are more desirable to potential buyers. Lastly, in terms of safety, properly sized windows can serve as emergency exits. They enhance the overall safety of the basement area.

This is a fantastic question and is of the utmost importance. To avoid mold growth in your basement remodel, maintaining a dry and well-ventilated environment is key. We start by ensuring proper waterproofing to prevent moisture seepage from the outside. This can involve repairing foundation cracks, improving exterior drainage, and installing a sump pump if necessary. Inside, we use dehumidifiers to control humidity levels, ideally keeping them below 50%. Luckily, being that we live in a very dry climate, humidity levels reaching above 50% are not at all common. Good ventilation is also crucial, so we might consider adding vents or exhaust fans, especially in areas prone to dampness like bathrooms or laundry rooms. We always opt for mold-resistant materials such as green boards or inorganic products for walls, ceilings, and flooring

At Artisan Remodeling & Design, we specialize in crafting bespoke spaces tailored to any aesthetic or design style. Whether you envision a modern minimalist retreat, a classic traditional lounge, or an eclectic mix of styles, our expert design team is adept at bringing these visions to life. We pride ourselves on our ability to listen closely to our clients’ desires and translate them into stunning, functional spaces that reflect their unique tastes and lifestyles. Utilizing high-quality materials, cutting-edge design techniques, and a keen eye for detail, we create basements that are not only visually stunning but also cohesive with the overall style of the home. Our commitment to customization and luxury ensures that each project we undertake is a true reflection of our clients’ aspirations and a testament to our dedication to excellence in design.
