Our project spotlight this month is a stunning country-style kitchen renovation we recently completed in Burleson, Texas. The clients wanted to improve the aesthetic and functionality by incorporating a coffee bar, centralizing the refrigerator, and updating the appliances. Each of the design items — the Quartzite countertops, the mosaic tile backsplash, the custom cabinets, the decorative light fixtures, and the stainless steel appliances — came together beautifully to create a cohesive, polished look.

In many homes, the fireplace is the first thing you notice upon entering the living room. This massive focal point can set the tone for the entire living room as well as for the rest of the house. Our recent clients in Keller, Texas, knew that their 90’s fireplace was in need of a refresh and reached out to us to get the job done. They had a ledgestone finish in mind from the start but also wanted to discuss options for the mantel and built-in bookshelves. Check out our project blog post to see the amazing transformation and final outcome!

Our featured project this month is a 1970’s galley-style kitchen remodel we recently completed in Arlington! Our sweet clients came to us wanting to update the space, improve functionality, and create a more open floor plan between the neighboring living and dining rooms. The new design involved closing a window, relocating the sink, oven, and dishwasher, and modifying the cabinetry to allow for a large, beautiful peninsula. The finished product is just what the clients had in mind and creates a whole new aesthetic in the heart of their home! Check out the full story on our blog post.   Read more

How Much Will My Home Remodel Cost?

The first and most important question you should answer before starting any type of home remodel is how much it will realistically cost. Typically, there isn’t a straight-forward answer to that question without scheduling an on-site consultation and paying for a detailed estimate and design. Because no two projects and no two homeowners are the same, the total cost of your project will depend on multiple variables. This means that even if your neighbor a few houses down has the exact same floor plan as you, built in the same year, your total cost could come in more or less than theirs simply based on your unique scope of work. You also must consider the level of remodeling you intend to do – whether it is a full-gut project that involves moving walls and rearranging the original footprint, or if you just want to update the space you have with new paint, tile, counters, etc. The types of materials, finishes, hardware, and appliances you choose also impact the final price. For example, two homeowners with the same kitchen layout will have different totals if one chooses standard elements, such as a basic undermount sink and chrome faucet, and the other chooses high-end elements, such as a farmhouse-style sink with a brushed gold faucet. Of course, everyone wants the more expensive options often featured on HGTV renovation shows. Unfortunately, these shows tend to create unrealistic expectations regarding the actual costs, timelines, and processes involved in home remodeling. Read more

The right patterned wallpaper has the potential to make a show-stopping statement; unfortunately, that isn’t always the case with an original wallpaper from 1975! Our recent clients in Arlington wanted to remodel their dated master bathroom, which featured, you guessed it, floor-to-ceiling patterned wallpaper. They imagined a more modern look, with sleek tile, LED can lighting, a large walk-in shower, and a streamlined aesthetic. Our team was able to create a modern design, including everything the clients hoped for and more! Check out the transformation

Our June 2021 Newsletter

Our recent guest bathroom remodel in Arlington was a little different than our typical design-build projects: due to the existing layout and constraints of the floorplan, the emphasis was more on the aesthetics of the room than on improving the functionality. As a ‘pull-and-replace’ project, the renovation involved replacing dated features with new ones in the exact same location. These features included the bathtub, faucets, cabinets, countertop, mirror, and decorative lighting. Check out the full blog post to see the before shots and the beautiful finished look! Read more

Remodeling for Elderly Parents: 5 Age-in-Place Options to Consider

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! Read more

A galley kitchen remodel can be one of the more challenging home projects if improving storage space or changing the layout is the end goal.

Our team was able to identify the changes that could be made to improve storage, functionality, and overall aesthetic. The finished renovation is exactly what our client had in mind!
