One of the biggest decisions homeowners make when it comes time to remodel their master bathroom is whether or not to keep the bathtub or to sacrifice it for a larger shower. This is always the case in smaller bathrooms, and each time, the answer is different based on the client’s personal preference. For our recent clients in Arlington, they knew from the start that they wanted to remove the tub to allow for a luxury walk-in shower. Two of our designers met them at their home for an on-site consultation, and the discussion of possibilities got the project off to an exciting start!
After renovating our Arlington client’s kitchen a few years ago, she recently reached out to us to tackle another home remodeling project – her guest bathroom. Our team was elated to hear from her again, and we couldn’t wait to get started!
As a ‘pull-and-replace’ project, changing the layout to improve the functionality of the room was not a concern. The emphasis was instead on replacing the dated features with new ones in the exact same location. These features included the bathtub, faucets, cabinets, countertop, mirror, and decorative lighting. With these updates, the bathroom would feel brand new, but keep the same layout and square footage it always had.
The kitchen may be the ‘heart of the home,’ but the master bath is the grand retreat – the place you go to unwind after a long day, to treat yourself for a job well done, or to give yourself some ‘me’ time after tending to kids or a busy schedule. There are few things more rewarding than a quiet, serene space to relax. This is one of the big reasons master bathroom remodels are so highly sought after among homeowners! Our recent client in Flower Mound, Texas, felt the same way. Her master bathroom was over 20 years old needed a renovation to better serve as an at-home escape. She came to us with hopes of recreating the space into something she had always wanted; something she could enjoy for years to come.
You might think there isn’t much that can be done for a galley kitchen – removing an entire wall would take away valuable cabinet and countertop space, and the limited square footage makes it nearly impossible to change the layout at all. The good news is that you don’t have to completely change the layout or remove walls to create a beautifully updated aesthetic. Our most recent kitchen remodel in Fort Worth is a prime example!
Our client’s home was built in 1965. She inherited the home and knew that it needed to be remodeled, starting with the kitchen. Due to the existing floor plan, the option of completely opening the kitchen into the living room was unrealistic, since that side of the kitchen housed the sink, the dishwasher, and cabinet storage. She met with our team in hopes of updating the kitchen without having to compromise on storage or counter space.
27 years old may sound young, but certainly not when you’re talking about the age of a bathroom! Our recent clients in Colleyville, Texas, came to us at the end of last year with hopes of renovating their 1993 master bathroom. The original bathroom was a good size and was fully functional, but the clients felt the aesthetic needed a refresh to match the rest of their beautiful home. Along with a new look, they specified the need for more storage space, both in the vanity area and in the master walk-in closet. The number of drawers, cabinets, and shelving may seem like minor details, but these are the types of things that impact the way you use your space on a daily basis. You don’t always have to change the floor plan or make huge structural modifications to make your home more functional!
We absolutely love to have the same clients come back to us time and time again for multiple home renovation projects. Not only does it validate that we do good work, but also that we have established a strong foundation of trust. It means so much knowing that our team is trusted, valued, and seen as the top choice among remodeling professionals! We are blessed to be able to call the majority of our long-term clients both our customers and our friends. Such is the story behind our recent fireplace remodel in Arlington, Texas.
Our recent clients in Grand Prairie, Texas, had a lovely home built in 1999. The kitchen wasn’t in terrible shape, but the clients knew it was time to refresh the look and also make some modifications to improve functionality. Luckily, the size and layout were great, so not much needed to be done structurally to the existing footprint.
A very popular trend in kitchen design right now is two-tone cabinetry: when the upper cabinets and lower cabinets are different colors or stains. Our clients loved this idea and shared some inspiration photos showing a mixture of stained wood cabinets, white paint, and dark countertops. They also loved the high-end look of glass front accent cabinets, open shelving, and shaker-style cabinet doors.
Our recent clients in Arlington, Texas came to us with three problems that needed solving: they needed additional storage space, a place to keep their beautiful tropical plants during the winter months, and a covered area to park their vehicles. The existing 2-car garage helped some with these issues, but with their vehicles inside, the garage became overly crowded. After chatting with our design team and considering the options, utilizing the spacious driveway made perfect sense! The addition of a large carport would provide ample shelter for their 3 vehicles while also allowing their garage to be converted into a storage space and winter house for their plants. This concept checked all the boxes, allowing them to ‘kill three birds with one stone!’
A home remodeling request we have noticed becoming more popular recently is that of a master suite addition. We often meet with homeowners whose elderly parents are moving in with them or those that absolutely love their home, neighborhood, and community, and simply need more space. Whatever the reason may be, more and more homeowners are considering adding onto their current home instead of moving. While the obvious high cost of a major addition prevents us from completing too many of these types of projects, we do get the opportunity to complete them every now and then, and the clients are always glad they did it at the end!
While the majority of our home remodeling projects include a kitchen, bathroom, or room addition, every once in a while, we have the opportunity to complete a somewhat “out-of-the-ordinary” project for homeowners with a specific request. These kinds of projects are a nice change of pace and allow our designers to not only get creative, but also exercise critical thinking and problem-solving. It’s always fun to see the end result and what our team comes up with!
