Master Bath Remodeling Ideas


Ceramic Tile Shower

Ceramic Tile Shower

Ceramic tile shower– Ceramic tile comes in a variety of colors and sizes, so personalizing your bathroom space will be easy. Unless you’re super indecisive about colors like I am…then you might need to call in a friend or professional to help you out. It is easy to clean and does not harbor germs; hooray for less time scrubbing the shower! It also prevents humidity. Ceramic tile in the shower is a win-win situation, you really can’t go wrong. Give us a call, we can help you stay on budget and get it finished right the first time so you can enjoy your shower.


Multi-shower head

Multi-shower heads– Need I say more? It’s like heaven in the bathroom. After you remodel your shower with ceramic tile, you would have to put in multi-shower heads. I’m pretty sure I would lay in the floor forever…or until the water got cold.






Double sink

Double sinks



Double sinks– Are you and your significant other playing a grouchy game of do-si-do every morning when it comes to bathroom time and trying to get ready for work? Instead of waking up 5 minutes early to take dibs over the bathroom, how about looking into a double sink vanity? If you think that your bathroom is too small to accommodate a double vanity, call Friga Construction and we’ll be happy to take a look and see what we can do. You deserve that extra sleep and not start every morning with a fight for the sink.



Storage ideas

Storage ideas




Storage- Utilize the space in your bathroom. Ever thought of putting shelves above the door? If you put colorful baskets up there with all your goodies in them, it will draw the eye upward and make the bathroom appear a little larger. Or putting up a half wall-Friga will help you with that. A half wall near the toilet area will not only offer privacy but it provides a great way to build in additional storage spots.






Heated Tiles

Heated Tiles


Heated tiles– This is almost if not better than the multi-shower head idea. Just picture it; getting out of the shower and stepping onto a nice, warm, heated floor. That sounds amazing!! Plus, if you got pets, they will love you for this feature. Friga Construction recently installed a heat pad under bathroom tiles, so when you’re ready we will be here prepared to help.




Walk-in Closet

Walk-in Closet




Walk-in closet- Tired of your insufficient closet space that’s not usefully located and too small to organize? Friga Construction can come in and remodel to fit your needs. Have you wondered how a large walk-in closet would look joined to your bathroom? You could have everything you need to get around in the mornings in one central location. There’s no need to leave your heated tile floor to pick out an outfit for work.




Give Friga Construction a call when you are ready to remodel your bathroom and we will be glad to make your visions become reality. Contact us today. 

Why Hire a Professional??

Warm weather is slowly approaching and maybe you are thinking about doing some renovations around the house. You’ve been watching some YouTube videos about how to install a new vanity in the bathroom and possibly upgrading the toilet to a brand that is more energy efficient. Good for you; you are trying to do some remodeling yourself because you think it will save money, right?  Well unless you know exactly what you are doing, you might be better off hiring a general contractor to help out. We can help you stay on budget, within a specific time frame, and we will make sure the task is finished correctly the first time. Friga Construction can help with the small projects around the house or even the big stuff. We are a one call general contractor who can work throughout SW Missouri. Contact us today.

So if you want to remodel a room and want someone professional, give us a call. Please don’t try to renovate if you do not know what you’re doing or if you have tried in the past and it turned out like these pictures…

10 Must-Haves for a Luxury Kitchen Continued….

Here is the last 5 must-haves for a luxury kitchen…


Beautiful back splash

Beautiful back splash




6. Back splashes- This small cosmetic project can dramatically transform your kitchen. Friga Construction loves to remodel kitchens and a nice tiled back splash can bring the whole room together in the end. I’ve seen some stunning kitchens with only new back splashes and it looked as though their kitchen was transformed into a different room. The picture is just one example that I am absolutely in love with. There is no need to add a back splash to the whole kitchen; just in one target area can make a difference. I could look at the picture all day because it is amazing. And this is something that Friga could help you with. We are a one call general contractor. Want to remodel your kitchen and do not know who to call about cabinets, who to contact for new appliances, where to turn for for the flooring? Call us, once. That’s it and we will help you with everything to create your luxury kitchen. Are you in love with this back splash as much as I am?? Then make it happen. You should be happy with your home, your kitchen, your life. Plus everyone needs a little sparkle in their life and this back splash does just that.




Hidden walk in pantry

Hidden walk in pantry


7. Walk in Pantries- Like I had mentioned in the first post of the 10 must-haves, I love food. My problem is where to store all the food that I feel necessary to buy while grocery shopping. But I also like to be organized; I want to know exactly where anything I am looking for is placed and I like labeling areas so others know where to put it when they are finished. Most of us have a small closet in the kitchen that we call the pantry but in reality it is just a few shelves behind a small door that is near impossible to keep organized. Stuff you put in the back of the shelves you either forget about because something else is blocking it or when you need it, you have to take 20 boxes of macaroni, Frosted Flakes, and those delicious fiber bars to reach it. Then you throw the fiber bars back in first and forget about them until they are old and stale. Oops. Friga Construction can remodel a room to accommodate a bigger and better walk in pantry. This picture of the hidden walk in pantry is beautifully done all the way down to the chalkboard paint on the door for convenient shopping lists or to-do’s.  Tired of  throwing out food because it was lost in the pantry for too long or want some sort of organization? Give Friga a call and we can make your visions become reality.


Beautiful farm sink

Beautiful farm sink



8. Farm Sinks- I am IN LOVE with this idea. One day in my dream house that I will be hiring Friga Construction to complete, I will have a farm sink in my luxury kitchen.  These sinks are sometimes referred to as apron front sinks and boy are they darling. The front of the sink is exposed instead of sitting behind the cabinets. Since they are usually just one big basin, they are carved from one material and then the faucets are attached behind the sink; this leads to a smaller chance of leaking. Also, since there is no counter top between you and the sink, there is no additional strain on your back from leaning, even slightly, to do the dishes or give the baby a bath. Give us a call when you have picked out the farm sink you want to complete your kitchen with; those suckers are heavy and you will want a professional to make sure it is finished right the first time.



Gorgeous bamboo flooring

Gorgeous bamboo flooring




9. Eco friendly flooring- Wait…eco-friendly flooring? Yes. I am not one to sit and lecture others about saving the planet, recycle, reuse, reduce, but that does not mean I do not care. I do what I can, when I can to make sure I do my part for the Earth. When I was reading about eco-friendly flooring, I knew that it was exactly what I would want in my future dream house. I have researched and read through the pros and cons of hardwood flooring versus something like bamboo flooring. Bamboo can grow up to 24 inches in one day and can reach maturity in as little as 3 years. A tree will need around 20 years to reach full maturity. When bamboo is harvested, the roots do not need to be cut so the plant can keep growing without being replanted. Also, bamboo naturally repels mold and mildew. Plus, it is gorgeous!! I love the natural designs and colors in the picture. So, when you are wanting to upgrade your flooring; hardwood or bamboo, Friga Construction can help. We will be glad to make your home more eco-friendly.




Pot filler

Pot filler



10. Pot Fillers- Last but certainly not least a must-have for a luxury kitchen is a pot filler. I cook a lot of pasta in my house. Delicious, warm, oodles of noodles-the kiddo loves it. But that means I am filling up a big pot of water at the kitchen sink and hauling it over to the stove top. Doesn’t seem like too big of a chore, right? Well, over time it can cause problems. Pot fillers reduce back strain caused by hauling heavy pots of water and it also saves time. They can also add a professional touch to your kitchen; tucked nicely behind your stove top. No joke, I have seen a house sell because the elderly couple that was looking to buy noticed one of the houses had a pot filler. That was the deciding factor; the sweet little lady could not carry the heavy pots of water from the sink to the stove and this small fixture made the world of difference to her. Can you even see it in this picture? Some are made to be discreet and small and others are made to make a statement. It all depends on your style.


Give Friga Construction a call. We are located in Springfield, Missouri and have worked in most counties within Missouri. We will be happy to come out to your home and speak to you about ideas for turning your kitchen into a luxury kitchen.

We service the following Southwest Missouri areas including: Springfield, MO; Nixa, MO; Ozark, MO; Mountain Grove, MO; Joplin, MO; Lebanon, MO; Carthage, MO and Branson, MO.



10 Must-Haves for a Luxury Kitchen

So, Yahoo recently posted a link about the 10 must-haves for a luxury kitchen. There are probably 8 on the list that I would personally love to have in my dream kitchen…maybe one day.

1. Wall ovens  –> I love to bake and I love baking multiple things at the same time because I get in a baking funk and want to make 12 dozen cookies, a pie, cinnamon rolls, a three tiered cake, and baked spaghetti all in one afternoon. The bad thing about it now is that I only have one oven. Also, it can get tricky trying to get the small children and possibly fur kids out of the kitchen when you are needing to get something out of the oven and it’s a thousand degrees and you are trying to hold them back with your foot while maneuvering the heavy oven door, and get your huge pan of deliciousness out of the oven. Now imagine….what if you had two separate ovens that were in the wall and not sitting on the floor? That is possible and it is an amazing thought. They also have ovens that can be controlled through a wireless connection with your smart phone. Holy smokes. That is amazing. I could go on and on and ovens….but I will move on to number two.

2. Exotic wood countertops  –>  I am sure having some awesome, exotic wood countertops would look magnificent. I still love the whole granite look so this is not exactly on my wish list for my dream luxury kitchen….but I am sure that if I seen a color that I loved, I might change my mind.

3. Super quiet dishwashers –> What is that? My dishwasher sounds like a monster destroying my kitchen. I can hear every single different cycle it goes through. Sometimes at night when I turn it on and forget that I did and I’m laying in bed attempting to fall asleep when I hear horrible, scary noises coming from the kitchen. I grab something heavy and prepare myself to fight off a team of burglars until I realize that it is just the dishwasher doing its thing…just extremely loud with extra scary noises added in when the lights go off. It knows when everyone goes to bed. Anyway, they make these dishwashers that are super quiet. Like so quiet you do not even know they are on. Also, they have a ton of features; like a small load option. My old dishwasher is all or nothing. I go days with all of my silverware dirty, sitting in the dishwasher but I don’t want to waste turning on the dishwasher for my whole drawer of silverware, two cups, and a plate. How I manage that, I’m still unsure but it happens and you know exactly what I am talking about. But with the new dishwashers you could opt for a half load option, saving water and getting all that silverware clean so you don’t have to eat your bowl of soup with a huge ladle.

4. Induction cooktops –>  I am still up in the air about this being on my wish list for my dream kitchen.  It sounds amazing and I know that if I would cook more on the stove top that I would probably want this in a heart beat. But I am more of a baker at the present time. But these induction cook tops offer precise temperature control. They also heat up more quickly than gas and electric cook tops. I’m a fan of gas cook tops because they heat up so fast and I feel like I cut my cooking time in half. However, these induction tops get hot more quickly than a gas cook top, which completely blows my mind. I could cut my cooking time down even more. Amazing. I don’t have any other words for this.

5. Built in refrigerators –> I love food. But my problem is where to store all the food that I buy. My freezer space is sad; I don’t even want to talk about it. The fridge space is a little better but I find myself challenging my stacking skills. Not to mention that my fridge is like an icky off white color. But once I have my dream kitchen, I will have a custom built in refrigerator. They offer some serious storage space, plus they are so beautiful because they match your kitchen perfectly. They can be made to look like your cabinets and it just blends in so well.

I cannot wait to design my luxury kitchen one day in the future and make it what I want it to be. I spend a lot of my time in the kitchen and I should be happy with it. It should be functional and only aid you in creating whatever you create in your kitchen instead of pulling you back and restricting you of your full potential. I will add the other 5 on another day so make sure to stay tuned and keep reading so you don’t miss out on anything.  Also, if any of these ideas sound like something that you want contact Friga Construction. We can help you create a kitchen that you will be proud to call your own. A place that you will want to spend your time cooking, baking, etc. instead of dreading having to cook supper because your kitchen is so small and outdated.

We can help you with your next remodeling of your kitchen. We service the following Southwest Missouri areas including: Springfield, MO; Nixa, MO; Ozark, MO; Mountain Grove, MO; Joplin, MO; Lebanon, MO; Carthage, MO and Branson, MO.

2014 Will be the Best Yet For Construction

Happy New Year from everyone at Friga Construction!!

I cannot believe that 2013 is finally over and a bright, shining, new year is upon us. There are so many possibilites for change in 2014 and they all look promising.

Did you make a New Year’s resolution? Maybe two or three? Going to start working out and cut out the soda? Me too! But, I broke that resolution Wednesday evening when I opened a can of Dr. Pepper…. Or spend more time with the family; you know, actually being in the same room, verbally speaking to each other instead of scattered throughout the house and the only means of communication is through text, Facebook, Snap-Chat or Twitter? When was the last time you sat around the kitchen table and ate dinner as a family? Do you kept telling yourself that the only reason why your family does not eat around the table is because the dining room is not big enough?

Believe it or not, Friga Construction can help with many of your new year resolutions. Want to pull that old treadmill out but don’t have the room to leave it out as a daily reminder? Friga Construction can help remodel a room to accommodate exercise equipment. Or we could build a new room to your existing house. Your own personal gym…without all the germs, awkward looks, and other people’s sweat from the overly priced gym in town.

Will this be the year that you make changes to start saving money? Possibly cut down that electric bill? Well, Friga Construction can assist you in that resolution also. Have you ever thought about enlarging the small windows in your living room and maybe put some skylights in the kitchen? This will increase natural lighting which can positively affect your health and your outlook on the day. It will also reduce the need to turn on the lights so maybe your next electric bill won’t be as high. With the larger windows and more sunlight coming in, you could totally grow your own herbs in the window. Which might lead to more healthy eating habits…perhaps then lead to cooking more at home. Look at you! You are eating healthier, being more positive about the day with all the natural lighting, exercising in your renovated personal gym, and sitting around the table to eat a home cooked meal as a family because the dining room was expanded. And…you went ahead and remodeled the outdated kitchen which had been covered in chicken themed wall paper for the past 15 years.

Friga Construction can take down that wall paper for you and rebuild, remodel, or renovate your home. Let us help you reach your new year’s resolution. We want your visions to become reality.

Let us make 2014 be the best year yet! We service the following Southwest Missouri areas including: Springfield, MO; Nixa, MO; Ozark, MO; Mountain Grove, MO; Joplin, MO; Lebanon, MO; Carthage, MO and Branson, MO.

Contact us today to find out how we can help service your next construction or remodeling needs.


Happy Holidays from Friga Construction!

During your Holiday gatherings filled with family, food, and usually at least one broken household item (that lamp fell on its own, right?), do you catch yourself wishing that you had more space to entertain? Maybe additional room in the kitchen so it could fit more than 2 people at a time without elbowing each other? Or even that double oven you have been eyeing; imagine baking the ham and the sugary, delicious, melt in your mouth cinnamon rolls at the same time….ahh the possibilities.

Well, all of that and then some, does not have to be a wishful thought that occurs every year when half of the family is at the dining room table and the other half is scattered throughout the house. And you are trying to find a place for everyone to sit and be comfortable that does not involve a delicate balancing act with a heavy plate of food and a can of soda . Friga Construction can make your visions become reality.

Want to remodel the kitchen? We will do that.

Expand your dining room and family room? We can do that also.

Thinking about adding on another room? Sure thing, we can gladly build from the ground up.

Finishing the basement and making it into the game room so all the rowdy kids can go downstairs and stop running around the living room all jacked up on Mountain Dew, and thus preventing the breakage of another lamp….Friga can put a rush on the basement and get it done as soon as possible.

Let us help create the vision you see, the home you want and can be proud of, and all the new memories you can make during the family gathering or just everyday in the upcoming year. After the last of the out of town family members leave, the decorations are taken down, and the attempted repair (fail) job of the lamp that you should have put away because you knew it would not survive the holidays…sigh, contact us and we can make your wishful thinking become the home you want.

Now is the perfect time to schedule, so Friga Construction can begin work in the spring. That way when the Holidays roll around in 2014, you will be ready to take on the family and host many amazing gatherings in your brand new renovated home.

Some new ideas

Have you thought about updating your basement from its old dark paneling to new finishes? This is a great way to upgrade your home for a low investment. Did you know that Avocado, blue, harvest gold, and coppertone left the color scheme about the time of the last ice age? If you want to see the new colors and redesign your bath and/or kitchen. Give us a call and we will be glad to come out and bring you into the 21st century.
