Lakeside Kitchen Makeover

 
 

 
 
Our recent clients have a beautiful home right off a local lake. With a gorgeous panoramic view provided by a wall of windows that opens up to the patio, their kitchen serves as the primary hub during parties and get-togethers. Unfortunately, the home’s original kitchen just wasn’t built to accommodate the party scene:

 
 

 
 

 
 

 
 

 
 

As you can see in the before photos, the kitchen felt small and restricted due to the curved peninsula and the walls separating it from the neighboring laundry and formal dining room. One of our client’s main concerns was that the space didn’t flow well, and the small breakfast area couldn’t even fit 6 people at the table; not ideal for entertaining!

Announcing The First Annual TRWD Trinity Spring Trash Bash!

For the last 23 years, Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) has hosted an annual Fall “Trash Bash” to help clean up trash and debris that accumulates along the Trinity River throughout Fort Worth. During this great community event, families, friends and organizational groups volunteer to clean up the river banks in 8 Different locations.

Back in 2013, I participated in the fall Trash Bash, along with our Marketing Coordinator at the time, Elizabeth. Several hundred volunteers came out to help, making the work go by quickly. It’s amazing how much trash there was, and how much better the river looked once it was cleaned up! Read more

Have You Started Making Summer Plans? Our April 2015 Newsletter

 

Can you believe it’s already April?! While Spring got off to a late start with all the winter weather we dealt with in the last few months, it’s definitely starting to warm up in North Texas! Along with the colorful blooms, pleasant weather and new beginnings that come with the season, spring also presents a time of preparation for the upcoming summer months. When it comes to home remodeling, many of our clients prefer to start planning their projects during the spring, allowing plenty of time for each phase of the pre-construction process to be thoroughly completed before the building starts. Doing so provides a solid foundation and positive starting point for the project as a whole, and also assures our clients with confidence that the job will go according to plan. Read more

Remodeling Vs. Moving: What Makes More Sense?

Choosing between remodeling your current home or moving into a new home can be a difficult decision, as are most decisions that involve large amounts of money. Unfortunately, this is a decision a typical family might have to face more than once.

The first time is when babies are born — most Americans buy a small starter home, which quickly feels too crowded once a child arrives.

This problem occurs again when the kids become teenagers and need their own space; sharing bedrooms becomes an invasion of privacy. Read more

An Improved Kitchen Layout Rekindles Our Client’s Love for Cooking

The kitchen has been called the “Heart of the Home” in that it brings together families and friends with food and fellowship. Unfortunately, many homes have kitchens that are just too small, closed off, or otherwise lack the functional design needed for more than one person to occupy. Our recent clients faced the same problem – both of them love to cook, and wanted to cook together, but the layout of their kitchen prevented them from enjoying the space together.

As you can see in the ‘before’ photos, their kitchen felt small and was missing out on its full potential due to large soffits taking up space above the cabinets, inconvenient placement of the appliances, a low-hanging vent hood that was an unattractive head-bumper, and outdated Saltillo flooring that was unattractive and hard on the knees.
