Richardson, Texas Master Bathroom Remodel

Master Bathroom Remodel: Single Family Home - University Dr, Richardson, TX

The owners of this recently updated home in Richardson, TX, flipped by a local investor discovered some major issues in the master bathroom after the purchase as well as cosmetic irregularities the new home owner wanted to remove.

Some of the drains were not plumbed correctly and had a combination of positive slope and concrete in the drain pipe. The glass tile in the shower was not cut correctly and they want to remove a corner shower that was converted into a sauna. Additionally the hot water in the master bath took several minutes to get hot in the master shower and did not get as hot as the other bathrooms in the hous​e.

To correct both the cosmetics and defects Renowned Renovation completely redesigned the bathroom, added a loop and recirculating pump from the hot water heater, and eliminated the sauna. Eliminating the sauna made way for a double vanity with storage tower adding functionality to the master bathroom.​

SELECTIONS

The countertop was selected from the Daltile One Quartz collection color Mar Blanc installed with white under mount sinks, Moen Rizon faucets, contemporary frameless mirrors, and simple vanity lights. The homeowner decided to keep the color scheme simple and stuck with a marble look porcelain tile from Daltile for both the shower walls and bathroom floor accent with a sky blue mosaic. Bye bye sauna hello soaker tub paired with a simple yet elegant filler.​

Before Renowned Renovation

This Master Bathroom Remodel-Richardson TX was recently updated by a home flipping company. There were some major issues discovered by the new owners after the purchase as well as cosmetic irregularities the new home owner wanted to remove. To start the drains were not plumbed correctly and had a combination of positive slope and concrete in the drain pipe. The glass tile in the shower was cut poorly, they converted the old corner shower into a sauna that goes unused, and the hot water took several minutes to make it to the master shower and did not get as hot as the other bathrooms in the house.

To correct these issues both cosmetic and defective we completely redesigned the bathroom, added a loop and recirculating pump from the hot water heater, and eliminated the sauna. Eliminating the sauna for a double vanity with storage tower we added functionality to the master.

Amazing Job! Professional, Prompt. 5 Stars!

I live in California and my mother who lives in Dallas recently had a fire her kitchen. Fournatelty no one was hurt, but mom is a senior citizen and needed help getting the damage fixed so she could move back in.

Work kept me from being able to spend the time in Dallas helping her. Luckily, I found Renowned Renovation online and after checking out their work, reviews and ratings I contacted them.

It was amazing. It was like they just rode in on white horses and restored everything! They were super responsive, considerate of my mother, stayed in touch, sent me pictures during the reconstruction and did job quickly. Thanks to Tyler and his team my mother is back home and enjoying her new kitchen!

I would highly recommend them if you are looking a great Remodeling Team that delivers on what they promise.

Owner’s Review

I wanted to remodel the kitchen in our State Thomas District townhouse in the Uptown Dallas area. Through search I found Renowned Renovation along with 2 or 3 other contractors on HomeAdvisor.com and Houzz.com. They were very professional setting up an appointment for a free in-home estimate.

They showed up at the designated time and provided me with a estimate quickly. I had a “vision” in mind and Tyler and Michael made many design suggestions that I hadn’t considered and really added to the overall results. I greatly appreciated their input. Although the price was a little more than the others, I chose Renowned Renovation for my kitchen remodeling project after careful consideration of all the proposals I received.

Key among the deciding factors were Renowned Renovation’s reviews, ratings and “before-and-after” pictures. Tyler was the Supervisor fro my project and my daily contact person. He was great to work with, particularly considering the fact that he had to work around a furnished home and my travel schedule. I had a little bit of a problem with a painting sub-contractor but Tyler and his crew took care of everything.

Condo Remodeling: New Master Bathroom with Steamroom

Master Bath - Personal Spa After a Renowned Renovation

Renowned Renovations did a total master bathroom remodel project for me and it tuned out so much better than I thought it could.

Grant and Michael are great to work with, they are responsive and helped with every aspect of the project. They met several times in the beginning to walk through and plan my project, the estimate was up front and no changes or surprises were made during the project and at end they walked through to make sure all the small details were taken care of.

Several things brought me to rate them 5 stars, first was the skill of the people they choose to contract with. The tile guys, painters and plumbers really took honest pride in their work and detail and I could tell they were as invested in having a nicely done project as I was.

Second was their flexibility, this was my first experience with a remodel and they worked with me on every change I wanted to make, even when some of the original job was already done for example the tile floor for the shower and the paint color which I changed several times.

I am having them do 2 more remodel jobs in my home which is the biggest compliment I could give. The plumbing company sent the wrong faucet to my home for the plumbers to install and despite it being installed they took care of getting it done right and changed it out which required re-cutting into the thole they just finished and didn't charge me at all. To the finish of the project they continued to finalize all the small details to make sure I was happy with the work and the design.

How to Blend Indoor and Outdoor Spaces

Creating Indoor Outdoor flow

One of the hottest trends in homebuilding and remodeng is the seamless blending of indoor and outdoor spaces. A natural extension of the open floor plan, this design greatly increases your room for daily living and entertaining. So how do you make it work in your home? See the tips for creating indoor-outdoor flow below.

Level the Floors and Expand the Entryway
Too often, doors to the outside are small or inconveniently placed. And when the interior floor doesn’t line up with the deck or ground, walking from one side to the other can be awkward and potentially unsafe. The solution? Level the flooring to smooth the transition, and swap your traditional door for large accordion or pocket doors to widen the entry.

Match and Coordinate Furnishings
Achieving symmetry between the two areas can help them look and feel more connected. Match furniture while still giving each space its own distinct look, and incorporate flooring that’s appropriate for both indoor and outdoor use. Lastly, bring some of the same colors and materials from your indoor living area to the outside with pillows, cushions or rugs.

Add Elements for Year-Round Comfort
Make the most of your transitional layout by adding fixtures that will make it comfortable in every season. Consider overhead fans, patio heaters, a fire pit and your numerous options for lighting. Remember: The more versatile the outdoor space, the more often it can be used.

By incorporating this design into your home, your space for day-to-day living and entertaining opens up considerably.

Master Kitchen Décor Ideas

2 Unique and Impressive Master Kitchen Décor Ideas

If you are wondering how to decorate your spacious kitchen area, then worry not. This blog will help you out with two inspiring ideas that would suit any large kitchen area. We all know how a kitchen plays the role of “the most important room of the house”. And thus, it requires adequate attention. And not all of us can afford to hire an interior decorator, as their charges are sky-high. The solution, in this case, is to go through multiple lifestyle blogs related to interior decoration and get ideas from there.

Master Kitchen Décor Ideas

Compared to small kitchens, a master kitchen is much easier to decorate. But yes, you do have to get in touch with the best stores for purchasing accessories like lights, tiles and kitchen cabinets, and make sure there is no compromise on the quality of the products. Here are two fabulous ideas which you can incorporate in your house.

A mystic white kitchen – As we all know, nothing can beat the beauty and serenity of the color “white”. A white kitchen is every house owner’s dream, and although it requires some amount of attention and time, it is extremely popular. For the perfect implementation of it, you need meticulous planning. The first thing which you should do is to get the walls painted in white or off-white, and change the existing flooring with white tiles. The next thing is to invest on a beautiful and spacious white kitchen cabinet. If you search online, you will see that there are many companies who offer these and that too, with great discounts. Since your kitchen is a master one, I would suggest you go for the maximum number of doors. But then, if the storage space required is less, then you don’t need to. Most of the homeowners, who are lucky to have a master kitchen area, opt for double vanities. The required space between two vanities is 40 to 50 inches, and thus, is great for large areas.

Master Kitchen Décor Ideas - White Cabinets

Master Kitchen Décor Ideas – White Cabinets

If you want to break the “all-white” look of the kitchen, then you can choose a countertop of charcoal gray or black color. But be very conscious while you are choosing the material of the countertop. It should be able to withstand the regular wear and tear and should be easy to clean as well. Granite, marble and quartz are three most popular materials used for manufacturing countertops.
Invest on a few white or off-white chairs and stools for completing the look. And since there are “no worries” regarding space and if you want to try something different, then you can think of a white sofa as well, for the guests to chitchat when they come while you serve food for them. When it comes to lighting a white kitchen area, I would suggest going for the magical and beautiful hanging pendant lights if you ask me personally. They would not only increase the aesthetical value but also provides ample illumination, which will make the kitchen works easier.
A Rustic Brown Kitchen – A rustic brown kitchen is an easy and safe option for a large area. You can experiment as you like and there are hardly any restrictions. If installing wooden walls and ceilings seem expensive and risky, then you can paint them with light brown or cream color. Wooden floors are not that expensive and if you search online, you will get various retailers providing flooring options with a lot of variation in terms of shades and textures. Next comes the cabinet, which is an integral part of any kitchen decoration. You can either buy a toffee or walnut cabinet from a reputed kitchen cabinet wholesaler. The number of doors and drawers will obviously depend on the space and your requirements. Make sure there is no compromise on the quality of the material. You can choose a white or cream colored vanity top. Buy a few wooden chairs, tools and other kinds of furniture, as you are lucky to have a master kitchen area. Since the walls will be big as well, why not buy a beautiful artwork that would complement the overall rustic look?

Master Kitchen Décor Ideas bench and Chandeliers

If you want to add an edgy appeal, get a bench or two for the guests to sit on. Chandeliers work great for rustic kitchens. But don’t buy an extravagant one. You can also use pendant lights if you want to keep it simple.
These are two inspiring master kitchen decor ideas for you. Incorporate them and create magic in the “heart of your house”. But contact a good lighting company, furniture and kitchen cabinet wholesaler for that.

Remodeling Do’s and Don’ts: For Condo Owners

Thinking about remodeling your condominium? Read this first

Thinking about remodeling your condominium? Read this first!

DallasVoice.com interview with the founder of Renowned Renovation – Grant Woodruf, on the do’s and don’ts when in comes to condo remodeling.

The process of renovating a kitchen or bathroom can be intimidating. Where to start? What factors do you want to take into consideration? Should you really paint those Shaker cabinets purple?

The struggle gets even more real when you’re taking on a renovation at a condo, high-rise or other multi-family residence — there are usually unforeseen restrictions, extra costs and that grouchy HOA president to deal with.

Great Spaces Logo bugThat doesn’t mean, however, that you can’t get a killer new kitchen or the bathroom of your dreams just because you don’t live in a house. You just have to get off on the right foot and minimalize surprises (and costs). Grant Woodruff, founder and owner of Dallas’ Renowned Renovation, specializes in condo/high-rise redos and suggests a few things to consider for a successful remodel.

Consider your budget. Woodruff suggests first looking online to see what you like and what direction you’d like to go (Houzze.com and Pinterest are great places to start). “You can find all types of looks, and almost have what you want picked out from other people’s stuff,” he says. “Then it comes down to how much you want to spend.” When it comes to the latter, be realistic. “People say, I watch HGTV and they did a whole kitchen for $12,000. That’s not real. That does not exist.”

Find the right contractor. “Renovation is like a puzzle,” Woodruff says. “There

will be a lot of unknown issues, so you need people who can problem solve properly.”

He notes that it’s not that hard to get a contracting license in Dallas, so it’s easy to fall prey to someone who doesn’t really have the chops to deliver. Don’t be afraid to take some pre-emptive steps to make sure your contractor is fully qualified. “Ask them, ‘Do you have reviews online? Can you provide a copy of your certificate of insurance? The names and email address of three references? The size, scope and completion date of three projects?” says Woodruff.

Consider condo conundrums. Units in multi-family buildings are harder to renovate, which leads to extra challenges… and extra costs. Makes sure you work with your contractor to communicate with your HOA and condo board to answer questions and understand regulations. “In a condo, your wires and your plumbing run through a wall you don’t own. You can only work from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. You may only have water shut off once a month,” Woodruff notes. The right contractor will work with you and your HOA to reduce unforeseen issues.

Think about your market value. Of course you want to update, but make sure you don’t go overboard into a trend that will die out — a dated look will turn off buyers should you decide to sell. “What I tell clients is, unless you don’t care and this the home you’re gonna die in, make sure your home has transitional elements — a little bit of everything that blends really well. You don’t want to date yourself but don’t go so far off the cuff it makes it hard for a buyer,” Woodruff says. “You don’t want people to either love it hate it.”

Be willing to compromise. New shower! Subway tile! Top-end finishes! It’s all so exciting!

It’s easy to get carried away, but know from the start that, between your condo restrictions and your budget, you might have to sacrifice a few things. Woodruff mentions a recent client who required a creative solution. “He wanted a hall bath, steam showers, shower body sprayers.” Re-doing the plumbing was getting more and more complicated and expensive. “In a high rise, everything is integrated,” Woodruff says. “Can this little ol’ water line provide water for all these sprayers you want?” The solution: Woodruff installed water pump in the bathroom. “It saved him $25,000,” he says. “It rattles a bit, but we’ll take that for $25,000.”
