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.

It was a pleasure working with and installing leading-edge products like Hunter Douglas Window Fashions, Cambria Surfaces, DuChateau Wood Flooring, Fixtures by WaterWorks, TruStile Doors, and Renowned Cabinetry

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.

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, ladder shelf, 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 mid century furnitures, 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?

If you want to add an edgy appeal, get a bench or two for the guests to sit on (check out ElizabethGordonStudio.com for more ideas). 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.
