The owners wanted to update their condo with an open floor plan, raised ceilings, new kitchen, new bathrooms and tile floors, and a new multi-use living room with hardwood floors.

The client engaged SHM Architects to take their vision, design a new layout, and create the permit-ready plans .

Working closely with the owners, the city, the Homeowners Association (HOA) and the property management team Renowned Renovation ensured all the plans, permits, and work complied with rules and regulations to deliver a well-built home with meticulous detailing and high-end materials. Our project management app, BuilderTrend keep everyone in the loop and help create little or no stress for the owners. We completed the condo remodeling project on schedule and in the budget.

In compliance with the Condo HOA rules, remodeling work could only occur on weekdays, between 9 o’clock in the morning and 5 o’clock in the evenings. Everything that had to be removed or installed had to be scheduled and highly coordinated because there were limited street-only parking and there was no storage area. Everything had to be moved in and out using a 6′-by-6′ elevator 15 stories each way. We took many elevator rides during this high rise condo remodeling project on schedule and in the budget.

Everything had to be moved in and out using a 6′-by-6′ elevator 15 stories each way. We took many elevator rides during this high rise condo remodeling project!

One challenging element of remodeling this high-rise condo was that the owners wanted to raise the ceilings as high as was possible which required that we replace most of the legacy wiring, fixtures, and the air conditioner ducts needed for the new HVAC system to effectively heat and cool the home. One challenge we discovered after the demo was to achieve the open kitchen concept it was necessary to move a roof drain.To obtain approval we needed an engineering assessment, code compliance expert, variance from the City of Dallas, approval from the HOA, coordination with HOA’s roofers, coring a new hole in the roof deck, and finally plumbing the new roof drain location.

The owners’ selection of materials, fixtures, appliances, furniture-grade custom cabinets, and the remote-controlled hideaway Murphy bed reflected their desire for function, luxury, durability, and style.

Lochwood Master Bathroom Remodel

From 60's Pink to Modern Luxury

Lochwood Master Bathroom Remodel of this vintage pink bathroom from the 1960’s that was adorable, but not functional. It was due for a much-needed update with a touch of luxury. We reworked the layout by taking over some unused closet space in an adjacent bedroom and used it to create a luxurious modern shower.

During the East Dallas, Lochwood Master Bathroom Remodel Renowned Renovation removed the old tub/shower combo in front of the window, creating more space for the toilet and vanity. Which provided the necessary room to add a double vanity and allowed more light to come into the area. Good use of space coupled with traditional marble in a modern style entitled this bathroom to be labeled Modern Luxury.

After demolition, we built 2 pocket doors, added a new concrete mud pan, bench and niche for the shower, retiled the bathroom floor and shower walls, installed a frameless shower enclosure, prefinished vanity with top and sinks from Kohler. We replaced the bathroom window, installed shower floor that was 2″ hex marble, Carrara White, The shower walls and bathroom floor were 4 x 16 classic white carrara. Fixtures were from Kohler with a white quartz countertop. The Bathroom vanity was from Renowned Cabinetry

     5-Star Remodel !     

We are very happy with our remodeled bathroom and the experience with Renowned Renovation! We did a full gut and remodel of the 1960's original master bathroom in our house. The Designer was great in the beginning with design and selection help. Since this was our first remodel experience, we didn't have much experience picking out tile, fixtures, etc. Melissa offered great advice and got us pointed in the right direction!

Once we started the project Darryl was our Project Manager and kept us up to date weekly on progress, schedule and any decisions we were needing to make. There were a few delays due to crew scheduling, but the team always did their best to accommodate our calendar and get everything rescheduled ASAP.


Another great benefit is the project management software they use. It provides real time updates and pictures daily as progress is done. Overall we had a great experience and would recommend Renowned Renovations to friends and family!

How Much Does It Cost to Hire an Interior Designer?

What Do Interior Designers Do?

Create Designs from Ideas. Renowned Designers work with their clients to develop the design concept, including style, mood, color and functional specifications for the project. Our designers use a combination of computer generated 3D Renderings and images with product samples to help owners crystalize their vision.

Generate Design Plans. The next step is for Renowned's Designers to turn that vision into a permit-ready plan. We will recommend specific layouts for a new kitchen or bathroom, map out where furniture and accessories will be in the room. Renowned designers can provide detailed 3D drawings of plans, or we can work with an owner's architect or engineer's drawings.

Estimate and establish a realistic budget and use BuilderTrend, our project management app, to help the client stick with it. If change-orders are required, we document everything in the app, and the owner must use the app to approve them.

Select products, finishes, and materials for the remodeling project. Which can include recommending paint colors, choosing wood for floors, tiles for walls, suggesting custom cabinet accessories (Safety-Susans or docking drawers). Our designers do more than selecting ready-made products and materials from retailers. Renowned's designers work with Cambria for Quartz, Hunter-Douglas for window treatments, our custom cabinet factory for vanities, furniture pieces, and kitchens for our clients. These manufacturers work only with the trade (not directly with homeowners), so our designers can select fabrics and custom detailing that make these pieces unique for every client.

Communications and Project Management
Renowned's Designers are involved in coordinating with the other team members on the project, pros such as architects, HOA property managers, sub-contractors, submitting plans to procure permits, monitoring and documenting the project through the BuilderTrend app to ensure that the right products and materials are delivered on time, installed as required to meet code and qualify for warranties.

Start with a design consultation. Renowned's Designers can work on an hourly basis on a specific scope of work, like color consultations or help with planning. We might ways to take a room to the next level that owners can't. This type of design consultation tends to be more costly than a limited service such as a color selection, since you get a wider range of our designer’s expertise.

If you hire Renowned your remodeling project the design services can be included. Meeting with a Renowned designer for a design a consultation could be a smart way to get started.

Successful Remodeling Action Plan: Stress-Free Home Remodeling

Successful Remodeling Action Plan







Planning ahead and taking things step-by-step is the key to a successful stress-free home improvements and remodeling projects. If done according to design, renovation projects can be painless and enjoyable. Remodeling is a decision that requires patience and planning. NARI suggests the following 10 Step Program When Remodeling:

First Step:
Make sure you have the financial resources, time, and patience it takes for a successful remodeling project before you start.

Next Step:
How long do you intend to live in your present home? If you plan on selling your home in the next few years, check with or hire a professional appraiser to see how much you can invest in remodeling and still recoup those costs when you sell the home. If you are planning on selling your home we suggest you should work an interior designer to develop your plans and budget. Once you have your permit ready designs you could immediately list the property as a For-Sale-By-Owner. We recommend these DIY & Done For Your marketing services.

Step Three:
Make a list of the ideas of what you want the remodeling project to include and what rooms you would like to change before calling a contractor. Make a list of the rooms you would like to remodel as well as the reasons for the changes. Go to Houzz.com and create an ideabooks, starting pinning on Printerest or post on Instragram.  Now you are ready to start by talking with a Design/Build firm, an Architect or a General Contractor.

  • The Design/Build Contractor— Renowned Renovation is a Design/Build Home Services company which means we provide both quality design and construction services within the same company. which benefits homeowners. As a design/build contractor will be able to see your project through from start to finish, keeping design, engineering and budget in mind.
  • An Architect—Major remodeling projects require construction drawings for the purposes of defining a contract and procurement of permits. In cases where your professional remodeler does not provide design services, you may wish to seek the assistance of a professionally trained architect. It is best to work with an architect experienced in remodeling–he or she will be more sensitive to the special challenges that remodeling represents.
  • The General Contractor—Many home improvement projects may not require professional design services and can best be handled by the experienced contractor whose knowledge of materials and methods has been gained by years on the job. Even small jobs need careful planning and attention to details.

Step Four:
Allow time for the remodel. Possible delays may and do occur during the project due to materials shortages, weather and unforeseen problems. Delays are common for special orders like replacement windows and kitchen cabinets. Take these into account when creating a time with your contractor. Unrealistic time frames will add to the difficulty and stress.

Step Five:
Hire a professional contractor. The best way to protect yourself is to hire a professional. Horror stories abound from homeowners who have hired disreputable contractors. Choose a contractor who is insured, meets any state licensing requirements, and is a member of a professional trade association such as NARI.

Most cities, towns and counties have established building codes. They vary from one jurisdiction to the next. A building permit generally is required whenever structural work is involved or when the basic living area of a home is to be changed. If you have a home with an unfinished basement and would like to finish off a portion of it for a family room, you would need a building permit because you have changed storage space to livable space.

Do not obtain your own building permit. In most jurisdictions, the person obtaining the permit is considered to be the contractor and is, therefore, liable if the work does not comply with local building codes. The complex elements of local building codes and permits are familiar details to a professional remodeling contractor.

Step Six:
Create a realistic budget. Decide how much money you can spend on home improvements before undertaking the project.

Step Seven:
Get a comprehensive proposal from your contractor. This allows you to know upfront how much money the project will cost. The proposal should also include the types of products that will be used.

Step Eight:
Get a signed contract before any work begins. The contract should detail the scope of the project, start and approximate completion dates, a payment schedule, product types, and responsibilities of the contractor and any subcontractors. The contract should also include provisions for change order procedures, warranties, and alternative dispute resolution clauses.

  • Specify all materials. Your contractor should detail a list of all materials for the project in your contract. This includes size, color, model, brand name and product.
  • Study all required plans carefully. Insist that you approve them and that they are identified in your written contract before work begins.
  • Federal law requires a contractor to give you written notice of your right to, without penalty, cancel a contract within three business days of signing it, provided it was solicited at some place other than the contractor’s place of business or appropriate premises–your home, for instance.
  • Understand the financial terms. Make sure that the terms are spelled out in the contract. The total price, payment schedule and cancellation penalty should be clear.
  • A warranty covering materials and workmanship for a minimum of one year should be written into the contract. The warranty must be identified as either “full” or limited.” If it is a “full warranty,” all faulty products must be repaired or replaced, or your money returned. A “limited warranty” indicates all replacements and refunds of damaged products are limited in some regard. The name and address of the party who will honor the warranty (contractor, distributor, or manufacturer) must be identified. Make sure the time period for which the warranty is offered is clearly specified.
  • A binding arbitration clause is also a good inclusion in the event a disagreement occurs. Arbitration can enable you to resolve disputes more quickly and effectively without costly litigation.
  • Thoroughly review the entire contract and be certain you fully understand it before signing it. Consider the scope of the project and make sure all items you’ve requested are included. Never sign an incomplete contract and always be sure to keep a copy of the final document for your records.
  • Be sure to put all changes in writing if the scope or complexity of your remodeling project is modified while work is being done. The amendment should be agreed upon and signed by both parties.
  • Keep a job file including the contract, plans, specifications, invoices, change orders and all correspondence with the contractor.
  • Request a contractor’s Affidavit of Final Release be provided you at the time you make final payment. This is your assurance that you will not be liable for any third-party claims for nonpayment of materials or subcontractors.

Step Nine:
Tie payments to work stages. Avoid contractors who ask for the total cost or a large sum of money up front. Contractors will usually split payments into percentages of the total cost of the project. These payments are typically tied to significant stages of the project, and payments are rendered as parts of the job are completed. Kitchen remodels, however, often require a large amount of money at the beginning to cover the costs of ordering cabinets and appliances.

Step Ten:
Keep your perspective. Remodeling is disruptive to your normal household environment. It is important to take a deep breath, keep your focus, and work toward the end result. If problems occur, talk to your contractor about your concerns. Remember, remodeling is fun and before you know it, you’ll have the dream home you’ve always wanted.
