5-Star Oak Lawn Townhome Master Bath

The new owner purchased this 3 story town home because he loved the layout and the construction, but he disliked the bathrooms, color selections and the loft-like industrial accents the builder installed , and so he started shopping for new a new look. He contacted Renowned Renovation based on a recommendation they received from the staff at the Ferguson Showroom in Dallas.

The master bath had an awkward tub in the corner, 2 separate vanities, a small shower, and the toilet closed off in a small closet.

With the aid of our interior design team we straightened out the bathroom, providing a simple, clean, and functional layout. And the 3 guest bathrooms got new vanities, faucets, lighting, countertops, tile floor, and new tile tub surrounds.

The existing stairs had a steel post & rail system, giving the home an industrial contemporary look.

We added new wood post, maple railings matched to floor, and installed painted wood balusters that restored the arts & crafts, traditional vibe of rest of the home. 

Oak Lawn Town Home Renovation

I hired Renowned Renovations to renovate my townhome in West Village – this is the first home I have ever owned as well as my first renovation project. When I purchased the home, I knew that I loved the layout but hated the finishings, so as soon as I closed, I immediately started looking for a contractor.

Right away, I was impressed by Grant’s professionalism. After a few minutes of standard pleasantries, he got right down to business. We spent about a half hour walking through each room in my home, talking through what I wanted to do. Based on the walkthrough, Grant quickly turned around a detailed bid, and we started the project shortly thereafter using the bid as our project plan.

In addition to the initial walk-through, I worked with Melissa on a number of aesthetic selections. One area where Melissa played a crucial role was the layout for the master bathroom. I knew the existing layout utilized the space very poorly, but I had no idea how exactly to rearrange everything. Melissa came back with 3 options (one of which we moved forward with), and I know I would never have ended up with the design we landed on without her help.

Due to my short timeframe, we started the project without drawings or precise plans (other than what was prepared for the initial bid). Tyler was incredibly adept at reacting quickly during the project, especially when last minute changes were needed. Overall, we finished within the agreed upon timeframe, and only exceeded the original budget for items I added during the project. All the subs they brought in were great, especially the painters and tile guys. When we did the final walkthrough, there were a few minor issues, but they were fixed in an expeditious manner at no extra charge

The kitchen cabinets were purchased at Lowe's and the countertops that we installed were selected from the stone collection by IMC - Dallas.

We also installed a new fireplace working with Glen at Trinity Hearth & Home, Inc for help replacing it.

The entire house was painted and new Tuftex Carpeting was installed through-out the home.  

Concrete Finish Condo Kitchen

This Condo at The Renaissance on Turtle Creek had not been updated since 1998. The new owners wanted a modern look with concrete walls and large stone tile.

For an industrial look and to add more character to the space the flooring was stained a dark gray and the structural concrete walls are exposed to accent the floors.  The walls were skim coated and then were sealed with a natural coating.

The kitchen countertops are simple yet stunning featuring Statuary Classique Quartz from MSI Surfaces which is elegant, durable, and requires no maintenance. This marble-look quartz is has a soothing white background and delicate veins make for great countertops with waterfalls.

Dallas Urban Condo Master Spa-Bathroom

This 2 Bedroom - 2 Bath condo at The Renaissance on Turtle Creek had not been updated and had the same finish dating back to original to the building’s construction in 1998. This traditional palette was not at all what the new owners had in mind for their living space. Their last home was very modern with concrete walls, large stone tile and they wanted to do something similar in the new place.

Renowned Renovation removed the existing flooring, master bathroom cabinets, trim, and the master bathroom tub. The existing master bathroom had a door allowing guest access from the hallway, which was closed to create a private master bathroom suite with a personal spa. This was accomplished by converting the existing tub into a steam shower. Storage space was maximized in the master bathroom by installing a large custom double vanity with a storage tower.

The Bathroom features the next generation of Mirror and Lighting integration from Paris Mirror. This 70x32 inch backlit rectangle mirror eliminates the need for wall lighting usually found above traditional mirrors. The LED mirror creates a clean - modern look in this condo’s bathroom.

The owners chose the Uptown™ Glazed Porcelain Series by Emser Tile because it features subtle textures and color variation giving their master bathroom a timeless, urban feel

We installed a Invigoration™ Series Steam Generators with Controls from Kohler that turns the shower into a spa-like experience with steam.  This private steam bath is ready in just 60 seconds. With the press of a button, this 5-kilowatt steam generator delivers the purifying benefits of steam, including respiratory relief and cleansing the body of toxins and impurities, to the shower stall.

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.

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.
