Highland Park Plaza Condo Window Treatments: Hunter Douglas Powerview Shades, Park Plaza Condominiums, Dallas

A Renowned Renovation is not complete without premiere window treatments by Hunter Douglas. Our team recently remodeled a Park Plaza condo in the Highland Park area of Dallas. During the day, natural light pours into this gorgeous mid-rise condo. With Hunter Douglas state-of-the-art, pre-programmed and automated shades, the exquisite balance of light and shade is easily achieved in every room.

Renowned Renovation Interior Designer Melissa Blassingille chose Designer Screen Roller Shades Powerview Hunter Douglas Shades window treatments. This style has an inside mount and provide a clean modern look using the Hunter Douglas Ashton 10% Fabric Collection.

Additionally, there are specific areas throughout the home where countertops or fixtures were chosen by Melissa and the clients to create a more dramatic effect. These provide opportunities for interior decorating elements to stand out and make the overall look of the home elegant and temporary.

THE HUNTER-DOUGLAS DIFFERENCE 

One of the most alluring aspects of owning a condominium is having expansive windows, an abundance of natural light, potentially a balcony and hopefully some spectacular views. Ideally, window treatments bring out the best in all of these features—without being a challenge. 

Hunter Douglas has become a household name and cornered the market by providing a vast array of styles and colors for window treatments in an ever-evolving collection that is innovative and stunning. The difference of purchasing Hunter Douglas window treatments also includes professional installation and a lifetime guarantee. These are just a few reasons why Renowned Renovation works almost exclusively with Hunter Douglas to provide our clients high-quality designer screen shades.

POWERVIEW SHADES ARE ALL THE RAVE

Whether or not you’re a fan of gadgets, we think you will appreciate the technology that Hunter Douglas has combined with their window treatments. Powerview Shades takes at-home comfort to a whole new level by allowing clients to program the time of day that they want to let the exact amount of daylight or night into each room. 

Condo-Bedroom-After-Remodeling-Highland-Park-Hunter-Douglas-Designer-Screen-Roller-Shades-Powerview Shades-Remote

These battery-powered, remote-controlled, and smart device-operated shades are programmed to open and close while you’re home or away. This kind of precision technology is not only great for ease and comfort, it is also practical. By limiting daylight exposure inside your home during the warmest times of the day, clients can protect their floors, furniture and rugs from UV damage. 

INNOVATION IS BEHIND EVERY STYLE 

If something is outdated—Hunter Douglas will improve the design. Over time, advancements and enhancements have been made to the classics, while new concepts continue to be introduced. 

For example, Silhouette and Pirouette have sheers on either side so they can be seen through, making them softer and similar to mini-blinds. Basic operation is the same but they have improved the design. This is the solution for every homeowner who wants to bring more natural light in while also maintaining privacy.

In the past, large windows were often shaded with either vertical hanging blinds or sliding drapery. Hunter Douglas has upgraded the material of the classic vertical blinds. This upgrade prevents the blinds from collecting as much dust as they did in the past and makes them easier to clean. 

Additionally, Hunter Douglas is developing a design to modernize window drapes so they are UV-protected, light-weight and room-darkening. 

Hunter Douglas is out there more than anyone else and they are always forging ahead. Committed to providing the style of window treatment that customers want, instead of determining what is no longer in style. With cutting-edge design, the quintessential styles continue to be customer favorites. 

SELECTING HUNTER DOUGLAS WINDOW TREATMENTS 

Picking out window treatments can be a difficult process. The options are endless. The Hunter Douglas showroom is designed to bring customers the same comfort and ease in selecting Hunter Douglas shades, as it is to use them. 

Ms. Blassingille says, “There are other providers that are more expensive, but ultimately Hunter Douglas has the best customer service for the client. I know people that have had Hunter Douglas for 20 years and have had them maintanenced at no cost.” 

First, Melissa works with the client to determine their needs per room. She is an expert in Hunter Douglas designs and enjoys helping clients narrow down their selection. Her guidance supports individuals who are unsure of what they are looking for. Ultimately, window treatments have an enormous impact on the feel and comfort of their home. Being supported in the process is what guarantees every buyer is completely satisfied with their final decision.  

AFTER STYLE COMES COLOR 

During the selection process, all the specific styles are reviewed. From Silhouette to Pirouette, Powerview, Solar & Roller Shades or Shutters, Room-Darkening and more. In the showroom all the styles can be demonstrated and considered.

After the style of window treatments are determined the color selection begins. Experts, like Melissa, work with the clients to pick colors based on the flooring, fabric, furniture and paint. There is an incredible amount of colors to choose from, however, the process doesn’t need to be difficult. Clients can choose neutral tones that blend well with a room to provide a more seamless effect. Alternatively, some people prefer contrast between the wall paint and shade color. This can add a design element to a room while the shades are open in the daytime. 

For example, a study or parlor that is fitted with dark leather furniture will be beautifully complemented by a rich color of Woven Wood Shades. In the evening, while the shades are drawn and warm lighting is set, this pairing will create a cozy effect perfect for reading. This is the difference and elegance the right window treatments can add to every room. Let Renowned Renovations help you find your perfect match.

Hi-Rise Condo Remodeling Master Bathroom | The Travis at Katy Trail | Dallas Texas

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 Hire the Best Remodeling Company in Dallas

How to Hire Best Dallas Remodeling Company

 

If you live in Dallas and intend to remodel your home in the near future, it’s in your best interest to hire the best Dallas remodeling company you can. Hiring a remodeling contractor is like hiring a doctor for your house. You want the most experienced. The original builder is long gone and what is behind the sheet rock is really an unknown. As a homeowner you need a team of professionals who understands the local Dallas area, how the local homes and condos were originally built and knows how to deal with any remodeling issues that can and do occur. 

When you hire the best and brightest in the industry, you all but guarantee that everything goes as smooth as possible during renovations. Otherwise you’ll feel upset and cheated if your newly remodeled home doesn’t look as beautiful as expected or the unexpected change orders drive up the cost.

Hiring the best company to remodel your Dallas home isn’t going to be the easiest thing to accomplish if you don’t know what to look for.

To help you make the perfect choice, we’d like to share our seven step verification process. If you follow these steps as we lay them out to you today, you’ll have no problem finding the best Dallas home remodeling company that money can buy.

  1. Visit the Local Dallas Remodeling Company’s Website
    Before you begin calling companies to provide an appraisal, it’s best to start out on the web instead.Why begin the search online?Well, it’s easy to get a feel for the company by looking at their website. You can find out about pricing, availability, and you can read testimonials and look at pictures of previous job sites.This information is invaluable during the elimination process. Just by the website alone, you’ll be able to eliminate potential remodeling companies if you aren’t satisfied with the look and feel of their site. Look for personal bio’s and research who is going to be in your home.
  1. Make Sure Each Local Dallas Remodeling Company Has a Physical Office
    This may seem like a strange request, but it actually makes a lot of sense after we explain it.Fly-by-night Dallas remodeling companies spring up from time to time. In an effort to prevent getting burned by an illegitimate business, we tell our readers to make sure the companies they consider have an actual physical address.Take some time to stop by their location and verify that it’s real. You don’t necessarily have to walk in if you don’t want to, but make sure the actual office does exist.
  1. Read Online Reviews for Local Dallas Remodeling Companies
    The easiest way learn valuable information about a company is to read online reviews from previous customers. First, look them up on web. A general search will turn up a lot if they are established. The website should also showcase detailed testimonials with photos of the project; before, during, and after the renovation.And check out their reviews while you are there. If you read about too many negative remarks or complaints, you’ll know that this isn’t the best company to remodel your home.Search each Dallas remodeling company in Google and see what pops up. If there are negative reviews, read them and find out where the company went wrong. And if there are positive reviews, read them as well and find out why this previous customer was so happy with their service.
  1. Ask for References to Call. And then Call Them.
    Don’t just hire any Dallas remodeling company without calling references first. You might end up finding out the hard way that the company you hired wasn’t as good as they seemed.Instead, call the references that they provide you. Ask them about their experience with the remodeling company.Find out if they installed quality bathroom and kitchen equipment. Ask the previous customer if they were happy with the overall experience.If your phone calls to references are positive, keep this remodeling company in mind because they sound like a keeper.
  1. Ask to Visit a Job Site Near You
    The best way to see a remodeling company action is to visit them at a job site.During this visit, pay close attention to everything that they do. Make sure you are 100% satisfied with their work before ever hiring them.
  1. Do They Have an App for Homeowners to Monitor Their Projects?
    At this point, many Dallas companies are providing homeowners with an app or project management software that allows clients to monitor the remodeling project.An app is an amazing tool because it lets you check in on the job’s progression from wherever you are. If you’re at work and curious about the status of your home, you can log on to the app and find out what the remodeling company is currently working on and who is currently on your project.
  1. Do They Offer a Warranty?
    Every remodeling company worth its weight in gold is ready and willing to offer their customers a warranty.In this warranty, the company will guarantee their work. And if you are unhappy with their work for any reason, they will fix defects in workmanship for free.The longer the warranty, the better off you’ll be. On average, you should expect the remodeling company’s warranty to last for at least a year.

Conclusion

Do you recognize the value of our seven step verification process? If you use this process while choosing your next Dallas remodeling company, you’ll have no problem finding the perfect solution to meet your needs.

Do yourself a huge favor and give this verification process a try sooner rather than later. Or just call us first because when it comes to hiring in the best remodeling contractor in Dallas—we wrote the book. Or at least we listened to our clients when they referred us to their friends and then we wrote the book.

Demystifying the Cost of a Luxury Bathroom Remodel

Looking to remodel your bathroom? According to HomeAdvisor.com, you can expect to spend between anywhere between $13,000 and $20,000 on a luxury bathroom remodel. Where does that money go? Is it necessary to do it all at once? With these questions in mind, we’ve demystified the cost of a luxury bathroom remodel based on common luxury bathroom remodeling projects.

Sink

Installing a new sink could cost anywhere from $190 on the low end to $6,500 on the high end. Luxury sinks, however, don’t always come with a four-figure price tag. Countertop sinks, for example, start at just a few hundred dollars.

Bathroom Cabinetry

Installing new bathroom cabinets can take a huge bite out of any bathroom remodeling budget with prices running anywhere from $1,200 to $13,000. Refinishing your existing cabinets could give your bathroom a luxury look but at a fraction of the cost.

Luxury Bathtubs

According to BadeloftUSA.com, modern freestanding bathtub can redefine your existing bathroom, giving it both a focal point and transforming the room into a luxurious and irresistible retreat. HomeAdvisor.com estimates the price range for a new bathtub installation to be from $400 to $8,000. Freestanding tubs fall somewhere in the middle, yet they’re about as luxurious a choice as you can make.

Bathroom Flooring

Here’s another area where prices fluctuate dramatically. HomeAdvisor puts the range between $800 to $7,000. No matter which materials you choose, flooring is a big job and is often best done as part of a larger bathroom remodeling project.

Bathroom Lighting Fixtures

This type of project can be completed relatively quickly by competent doit-yourselfers or with the help of a handyman or electrician balga.Upgrading your bathroom lighting fixtures can cost anywhere from $120 to $4,000 or more.

Other Quick Fixes

New bathroom faucets, bathtub fillers, or even a fresh coat of paint are other quick fixes that could add a touch of elegance to your bathroom. Costs, of course, will vary based on the choices you make.

Remodeling a bathroom is not an all-or-nothing proposition. As the list above shows, it is possible to break bathroom remodeling projects down into smaller individual projects. You don’t necessarily need to wait to get started on creating the luxury bathroom you’ve always dreamed of. Splurging on even one item, such as a freestanding bathtub, could be all it takes to transform your bathroom into one of luxury and relaxation.
