Tango Charities: Feed the City Bedford

Tango Charities’ monthly Feed the City event is coming up on the second Saturday in July; mark your calendars for this heartfelt volunteer opportunity in Bedford!

This event allows individuals to come together at a local venue to make lunches for people in need. The lunches consist of sandwiches, chips, and fruit. Feed The City events are open to all and do not cost a participation fee; only the cost of food items brought for donation. Each person is asked to bring a minimum of one loaf of bread, a package of deli turkey, cheese, mustard, a bag of cuties, a large bag of chips, and ziplock sandwich bags. The more you can bring, the more is able to be donated! Read more

A Transitional Kitchen Makeover in Arlington

It’s common for homeowners to come to us with the idea of a small remodel – “cosmetic” updates such as new paint, tile, or countertops. This is a great option if you’re not changing the layout or moving major components of the space. Sometimes, however, our clients find that these minor updates don’t quite get them what they want. In such scenarios, the project can shift from a small project to a large-scale, full-gut renovation. Our recent clients in Arlington, Texas, are a great example of how this can occur, and that it is totally doable with the help of our design-build team! Read more

Mike’s Guys: Wall Removal & Kitchen Refresh in Arlington

Our recent clients in Arlington, TX, came to us requesting some updates to their kitchen and neighboring dining room. The main focus was to open the area by removing the wall separating the two rooms. They also wanted to refresh the kitchen with new paint, backsplash tile, and countertops. Since this wasn’t a full-gut remodel, it was perfect for our small projects division – Mike’s Guys!

The clients knew they wanted a new cabinet color in their kitchen, but instead of painting both the uppers and the lowers the same color, they decided to go with the two-tone trend. They chose a new white for the uppers and a deep navy blue for the lowers, with gold knobs and pulls for an elegant touch. They also decided to paint the walls of the kitchen white, resulting in a brighter space and the illusion of higher ceilings. Read more

Our June 2022 Newsletter

Our project spotlight this month is a stunning lakeside kitchen remodel we completed in Arlington, TX. Our client’s beautiful 1970’s home had been updated throughout, with the kitchen being one of the last spaces that needed refreshing. Because the original layout wasn’t going to change, it was very important that the features included were impactful in regard to functionality and aesthetic. Both our clients and our team are thrilled with the finished product! See the full story and the transformation photos in our blog post. Read more

3 Steps to Complete a Whole House Remodel

From early 2020 to the present, people have been encouraged to spend more time at home. Many are still working from home as a vast majority of companies have since made the shift to fully remote employment. Vacationing and virtually all traveling was brought to a halt. These lifestyle changes, coupled with the drop in interest rates and influx of home buyers that resulted, caused many homeowners to consider remodeling. Projects like converting a space to home office or adding on a game room so the family can spend more time together became realistic options. Read more

A Serene Lakeside Kitchen in Arlington, TX

Our recent clients have a gorgeous home just off the lake in Arlington, TX. Many updates had already been made throughout the original 1978 build when the clients initially came to us, and the kitchen was one of the last items on their list to remodel. They knew the space needed a more modern aesthetic to match the rest of the house and the stunning view of the lake from the large breakfast nook windows.

Because the layout wasn’t going to change, it was important that the functional and aesthetic modifications were impactful. Custom cabinetry, new backsplash tile, countertops, and updated stainless steel appliances were a few of the items discussed early on. Along with keeping the butcher block countertop on the island, the clients also wanted to keep the existing stainless steel back panel and vent hood with the gas range, which was noted in the designs. Our team began working on the design package to showcase these changes and detail the scope of work required for completion. Read more

Our May 2022 Newsletter

Do you have a space that would make more sense with a different layout, or swapped with another room in your home? Such was the case for our recent clients in Keller, TX. Their existing laundry room was in a small, crowded room just off the garage, which made it difficult to use the washer and dryer without being in the way of the door. From the time they purchased the home several years ago, they thought it would be much more functional to have the laundry room in place of the larger mudroom/playroom that was just on the other side of the wall. Turns out, they were absolutely right! Our team was able to help them swap these two spaces, resulting in more functional, usable rooms. Take a look at the blog post to see the transformation!

A Stunning Laundry Room / Mudroom Swap in Keller, TX

Do you have two rooms in your home that just seem like they should be swapped? Our recent clients in Keller, Texas, have a beautiful home that was built in 2002. The original laundry room came directly off the garage and was very small, creating a bottleneck of thru traffic. The room also lacked counter space and sufficient storage. Neighboring this tiny laundry room was a much larger room that the previous owner had used as a music room for her piano. Because the clients have two young children, this room became a playroom and makeshift mudroom to store shoes, jackets, and miscellaneous items. From the time the clients moved into the home 4 years ago, they both felt that it made more sense for the larger room to be the laundry room, leaving the smaller room off the garage as a mudroom. They came to us with their issue and the idea of swapping the spaces, and our designers got to work conceptualizing the new floor plan. Read more

3 Options for Completing a Pull-and-Replace Kitchen Remodel with Mike’s Guys

As our business continues to grow alongside our expanding client base, we have found that there are many homeowners looking to complete a kitchen remodel in which no walls or plumbing will be moved. We refer to these types of remodels as “pull-and-replace” projects, where the existing footprint stays the same. Original cabinets, countertops, backsplash, etc. are removed and replaced with new materials, but in the same location. Due to the simple nature of these types of projects, they do not require the full design package that would accompany a more complex kitchen remodel. Read more
