1970’s Kitchen Gets New Life

Our recent clients have lived in their Arlington home for years and knew it was time for some updating. Not only was their original 1970’s galley kitchen visually dated, but also was less than functional – it’s doorway into the dining room got in the way of opening the refrigerator door, the narrow layout lacked space to host friends and family for get-togethers, and the entire room was poorly lit with one large fluorescent light in the middle of the ceiling. Sound familiar? Unfortunately, these are very common problems with traditional galley-style kitchens built in that era. Luckily, we were able to assist our clients with a fresh, modern design and breathe new life into their tired kitchen! Read more

Luckily, we were able to assist our clients with a fresh, modern design and breathe new life into their tired kitchen!
 
As you can see in the before photos below, the original kitchen felt very crowded. There was a small pass through over the sink, but it didn’t do much by means of opening the space. The narrow doorways, double oven and low-hanging fur down contributed to the crowded feel of the room and took up valuable storage and counter space. The mentioned fluorescent ceiling light created a dim setting and caused shadows over the workspaces – not ideal for cooking!

Adopt-A-River!

We love our community and take pride in keeping the environment clean and safe. The Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) does a great job of managing and maintaining four of our major reservoirs and also constructed more than 150 miles of water pipelines, 27 miles of floodway levees, over 40 miles of Trinity River Trails, plus a 2,000 acre wetland water reuse project designed to increase future water supplies for the area!
 
The TRWD also provides opportunities for the community to get involved in these efforts, such as the bi-annual Trinity River “Trash Bash” which encourages the clean-up and preservation of the Trinity River. Read more

Aging in Place: Facts to Consider about Walk-in Tubs

Aging in place means preparing of your home to be a comfortable and safe environment as you get older through the installation of universal designs. Things like grab bars, shower seats, wheelchair accessible doorways, chair lifts for stairs, and curbless showers are all options that can be installed to help prevent falls and injuries within the home. One popular universal design choice among aging in place homeowners is walk-in tubs.

 
Traditional step-in showers and tubs can be dangerous to seniors or people with mobility issues. Walk-in bathtubs can be an easy solution to this problem. These unique tubs are designed with a door on the side, allowing for individuals to walk in and shut the door behind them, minimizing the risk of slipping or losing balance that is often presented when stepping into or out of a traditional tub.

An Outdoor Patio Becomes A Cozy Family Dining Room

Our clients live in a newer subdivision, where the builders opted not to include formal dining rooms in any of the house plans. While many homeowners today never use their formal dining area, these clients were definitely missing theirs! They decided the best option was to enclose their outdoor covered patio and convert the area into a dining room. The new room would fit perfectly with the layout of their home, and they didn’t think twice about losing the outdoor space!
