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!
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.
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!
Our project spotlight this month features our recent 1978 kitchen renovation in South Arlington. Our clients had long-awaited updating this space and knew just what they wanted in regard to colors and style. One thing they hadn’t considered was removing a large walk-in pantry and an unused bar area. This modification not only made the kitchen more spacious but also created additional countertop and storage space that they didn’t know they needed. The finished project looks just as our designers drew it in the floor plans and 3D renderings — a modern, trendy kitchen to match the rest of the client’s lovely home!

There are a lot of variables that come into play during a kitchen remodel. The size and state of the existing kitchen, the complexity of the project, the features and amenities to be included, the structural changes that need to be made, and of course, the intended use of the remodeled space by the homeowners – that is, determining what modifications will most effectively solve the homeowner’s current issues with their kitchen. These variables are different for every project: perhaps the existing kitchen is too small and lacks storage space or the layout is dysfunctional. Maybe a remodel was started with a contractor who did things incorrectly or failed to finish the job, leaving the kitchen completely unusable. Because each of these scenarios has a different starting point and involves a different course of action to meet the homeowner’s needs, they each require their own customized design plan.
Our project spotlight this month features the dining room of a whole-house remodel we recently completed in Fort Worth. The space was a central part of the home and was visible across the living room upon entering the front door. It was important to the clients that this room was open to the living room, creating an open-concept floor plan and allowing the natural light from it’s large window to brighten the neighboring rooms. While there weren’t a lot of structural changes made, the updated dining room is absolutely stunning and just what the clients had in mind! Check out the details in our blog post!
A dysfunctional layout can make a room feel cluttered and crowded. Our recent kitchen remodel in Grand Prairie is the perfect example of how slight modifications in the layout can completely change the look and feel of a space! Our clients came to us facing a lack of storage and counter space, and a footprint that was not conducive for hosting guests. Our team came up with customized solutions for each issue, proving that the space had all the potential to be exactly what the clients wanted. See our blog post for the full story on this beautiful transformation!
If there is one common complaint we’ve heard from homeowners throughout the years, it is that they struggled to find a contractor that would follow-up after their initial conversation. Unfortunately, homeowners are often forced to deal with the frustration of waiting for an estimate that never comes. If you’ve ever experienced a disappearing contractor or non-responsive home improvement service, you know how infuriating it is to be seemingly forgotten about when you’re trying to get a project done.
Our featured project this month is a stunning Jack & Jill bathroom renovation our team completed in Southlake, Texas. Our kind clients initially came to us with a good idea of how they’d like to update their high school daughter’s bathroom. Our talented designers met with them and were able to translate their ideas into detailed 3D renderings. The completed remodel looks just like the renderings and achieved the modern, sophisticated aesthetic the daughter envisioned. Check out the full project on our blog!
There are many reasons homeowners choose to remodel, from updating aesthetics, to improving functionality, to increasing resale value. Another common request we receive is for assistance in making accommodations for elderly parents. This can either involve our clients remodeling their own home to allow for parents to move in or remodeling their parent’s home to prepare for aging-in-place. Either situation can be difficult, as making provisions for elderly parents can be stressful and emotional. Our goal in assisting with age-in-place remodeling is to simplify the process for both the clients and their parents to make for the best experience possible!
