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!
It’s always fun for our designers to look back on a completed project and remember how the space was the first time we saw it. In review of this kitchen remodel in Grand Prairie, our Senior Designer mentioned that “there were a lot of small problems within this space, but they were easy to solve.” Issues like lack of storage or counter space, poor layout, insufficient lighting, and dated aesthetic were among the list of things the clients brought up in our first meeting with them. They had a general idea in mind of how they wanted the new kitchen to look but were unsure of the specifics needed to get there. After talking through the detailed pain points the clients had with their existing kitchen, our designers got to work creating visual concepts for the renovated space.
Renovating a home to better meet the needs of the homeowner is a rewarding process in itself, but creating a little something special for the homeowner within the remodel is the icing on the cake! For our recent clients in Burleson, Texas, the little something special was a custom coffee bar that was included as a part of their kitchen remodel. Adding a coffee bar and morning sitting room was at the top of their wish list, which they expressed to our designers during their initial consultation. Our team wanted to be sure to bring their dreams to life while also making improvements to the overall aesthetic and functionality of the kitchen.
This project is a little different than our usual ones; there are no original floor plans, 3-D renderings for us to show, or backstory of the clients needing a larger floor plan or more storage. This kitchen remodel is the work of our very own Project Manager, Dave Broadfield, which he completed in his own home, on his own time, after hours of working in our client’s homes each day! We are blown away at his dedication and hard work to get this done without the assistance of our design team. The beautiful final result shows just how talented he is and the amount of detail he puts into his work. See the full blog post here.
