Every homeowner knows what a big impact small updates around the house can make. Sometimes a fresh coat of paint, a new piece of furniture, or even some small accessories can transform a drab room into a warm, inviting space for your family and friends. As simple as these décor updates might sound, knowing where to start can feel intimidating! If you’re considering making some interior changes to your home that don’t require remodeling, our talented interior designer, Stephanie, would be happy to help!
Outdoor kitchens and living areas are becoming more and more popular among home owners in North Texas. They are a great way to improve your outdoor space for enjoyment when the weather is mild in the spring and fall, and also act as a great addition alongside a backyard pool when entertaining friends and family throughout the summer.
We have designed multiple outdoor kitchens and living areas and our clients are always satisfied! Here are 10 tips to designing the perfect outdoor kitchen and living area:
Aging-in-place design, also called barrier-free or universal design, means making updates to an interior to create a safe and accessible environment for everyone, including those that are aging, may be disabled or need the assistance of a walker or wheelchair.
When we think of this kind of design, the first things that come to mind are ramps, grab bars, or chair lifts – features that might seem extreme, out of the ordinary, or specific to older or disable individuals. However, this isn’t always the case. In fact, many universal design features are not unusual requests among homeowners. Wider doors and hallways, for example, are common remodeling requests that make a home feel more spacious and can also benefit those that need universal or barrier-free designs.
Sunroom additions are one of our very favorite projects to design and build! These rooms always turn out beautifully, with large windows and lots of natural light. They are great for homeowners that want to enjoy nature all year round, without having to worry about the weather or outdoor temperatures. Another perk of having a sunroom is that it’s such a functional, multi-purpose space. It can be used for just about anything – a home gym, a playroom for kids, a study or home office, or even an extra space to set up a table if you’re hosting a holiday dinner!
Our recent clients loved the idea of having such a flexible, usable area that could meet so many of their needs throughout the year. They met with our team to discuss what they had in mind and the designing process began.
Another beautiful home renovation, complete! Our most recent project features a remodeled kitchen, powder bath, den and bar area of a 1980’s home in Colleyville, TX. The closed off, dated rooms now showcase a spacious floor plan, bright atmosphere, modern design, and of course, happy clients!
We began by discussing the goals the clients had in mind. They wanted to reconfigure the kitchen to incorporate an island and also update the powder bath, the fireplace in the den, and the bar area. Taking out the wall between the kitchen and the den and readjusting the desk area from the main walk way were also on the list.
After taking photos and measurements, our designers were able to create detailed floor plans and 3-D renderings to illustrate how the remodeled spaces would look once the renovations were complete:
