Tile Floors

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.

Bathroom Reconfiguration

The owner of this single family home in Dallas wanted to update the Master Bathroom. In addition to the master bathroom the house also had a guest bathroom. The master only had a sink and commode. After meeting with the owner's our Interior Designer suggested a reconfiguration of master and guest bathrooms that would add a shower to the master bathroom

<h2>Resources For Aging Friendly Remodeling</h2><p>This article was posted in the <a draggable=”false” href=”http://www.aarp.org/livable-communities/housing/info-2016/aging-friendly-renovation-improvements.html”>AARP LIVABLE COMMUNITIES</a> section on the AARP’s website. They are a nonpartisan organization that helps people 50 and older improve the quality of their lives. The author, Vince Butler is a professional remodeler and writes about <a draggable=”false” href=”http://www.aarp.org/livable-communities/housing/info-2016/aging-friendly-renovation-improvements.html”>21 things</a> he wishes he’d followed based on his own advice to clients wanting to make their homes aging-friendly. <a href=”http://www.aarp.org/livable-communities/housing/info-2016/aging-friendly-renovation-improvements.html”>Click here</a> for the complete article or see the highlights below.</p><p><strong>1. Raise the Outlets. Lower the Switches</strong> <br />There is no height requirement for electrical outlets or switches in most homes in the U.S. In fact, outlets are typically placed at a height equal to the length of a hammer simply because it saves measuring time during construction. Ask to have your outlets raised to 18″ above the floor so they’re easier to reach while standing or from a seated position. Light switch boxes are generally set above 48″. If you move the box below 48″ it makes the switch easier to reach from a wheelchair, scooter or by a child.</p><p><strong>2. Use Aging-Friendly Light Switches <br /></strong>Paddle-style switches are better than a traditional toggle switch since they can be easily operated with a finger, knuckle or even an elbow.</p><p><strong>3. Over Light and Dim it Down <br /></strong>It’s always better to install more lighting than you think you’ll need and include dimmers for control. Coming back later to correct a dark corner or work area is expensive and messy. LED lights provide excellent illumination without overtaxing the wiring circuits and are easily dimmable.</p><p><strong>4. Use Wide Doorframes <br /></strong>Use doors that are ideally 36″ wide. (The minimum width used should be at least 32″.) You don’t have to install the wider doors now, but if you frame for that possibility you’ll preserve the space and locate switches, pipes with a stainless steel flange and other obstructions clear of any future widening.</p><p><strong>5. Select Aging-Friendly Hardware <br /></strong>When choosing door knobs, cabinet hardware and plumbing fixtures, select designs that can be comfortably used without excessive pinching, twisting or force. Consider whether a child or a person without full use of his hands or arms could successfully use the item.</p><p><strong>6. Double-Up On Handrails <br /></strong>Staircases should have a handrail on each side to provide additional support or to assist someone who has a strength imbalance due to age, injury or illness. Double handrails make staircases safer and easier to use.</p><p><strong>7. Wider is Better Than Narrow <br /></strong>Most residential staircases are 36″ wide, but if a project includes a new staircase, 42″ would be better. That width makes it easier for two people to use the stairs side-by-side and better accommodates a lift chair, if required. Also, a wider staircase is especially useful when moving furniture!</p><p><strong>8. Deep is Better Than Shallow <br /></strong>If space allows, make the treads (the flat part of the step) a bit deeper and the risers a bit shorter. Even a small change can make the stairs safer and easier to use.</p><p><strong>9. Put Power Nearby <br /></strong>Include an electrical outlet at the top and/or bottom of the stairs. That way, if you ever install a lift chair it can be plugged in and charged without having to use an unsightly and possibly hazardous extension cord. In the meantime, having an electrical outlet near the stairs is very handy when vacuuming.</p><p><strong>10. Shine a Light on It <br /></strong>Building codes require that staircases have switches at the top and bottom. However, we don’t always use those lights when our hands are full or we don’t want to disturb sleepers in the bedrooms nearby. Motion-activated switches that turn lights on and off automatically are a helpful option.</p><p><strong>11. Block the Bars in the Bathroom <br /></strong>When a grab bar isn’t securely mounted, it’s more likely to become loose and fall off the wall. The best way to prevent this is before the walls are finished by installing horizontal wood “blocking” at the proper height for grab bars in the tub, shower and toilet areas. Installing such blocking is inexpensive and easy to do if you are equipped with the best compound miter saw during construction but can be very costly and disruptive later. Tip: Before the drywall is installed, run a measuring tape from the floor up to the framing and take a picture to document exactly where the blocking has been placed. There are ways to install grab bars without blocking but nothing is more solid and secure than fastening directly to the wood framing.</p><p><strong>12. Open and Close the Door <br /></strong>Doors are the number one obstacle to having a usable bathroom when someone requires assistance or is using a mobility aid. Sometimes an out-swing door works better for a bathroom than an in-swinging one. In other scenarios, a pocket door may be the better solution.</p><p><strong>13. Cut-out the Curb <br /></strong>A shower is generally more usable and safer than a bathtub. Eliminate the typical step-over shower curb for a zero-step solution. If desired, the space can accommodate a frameless glass shower enclosure or, if needed, be converted into a fully-accessible shower for either a seated transfer or roll-in use.</p><p><strong>14. Grab the Grab Bars Now</strong> <br />If the walls are blocked already, install the grab bars. People of all ages can benefit from having something to grab onto near the shower or tub. (I found the grab bars in my bathroom to be quite helpful while I was recovering from shoulder surgery.)</p><p><strong>15. Kitchen Counters – Low, Medium and High</strong> <br />Various height kitchen countertops provide options for use by a child, a tall person and someone who prefers to sit rather than stand while preparing a meal.</p><p><strong>1</strong><strong>6. Put it Away <br /></strong>Provide storage options in locations that don’t require lifting, and include pull-out drawers and trays and other accessories to increase usability. <strong>1</strong></p><p><strong>7. Pick Aging-Friendly Appliances <br /></strong>Consider the design of stoves, dishwashers and refrigerators to minimize or eliminate hazards such as reaching over a hot burner to adjust the controls. Evaluate the design for usability by people with varying abilities and locate the appliances to minimize lifting or bending. For instance, placing a microwave oven above the range is an example of not planning for the future.</p><p><strong>18. Two Sinks are Better Than One <br /></strong>Consider installing a second sink with a pullout spray faucet near the cooking area. Doing so is handy for filling a pot with water for boiling — and then emptying that pot without having to carry it across the kitchen.</p><p><strong>19. Easy In, Easy Out <br /></strong>There should be at least one way to get into the home without having to use steps. Installing a zero-step entry into the house (and into a shower, as noted above and shown at right) solves two of the most challenging obstacles to creating an age-friendly home. If plans include adding a garage or new living space, consider options that will create an entry that can be used by someone using a wheelchair, pushing a baby stroller or dragging wheeled luggage.</p><p><strong>20. Stack the Closets <br /></strong>If a home has multiple levels, locating the closets in the same location on each floor creates space for a future elevator shaft. It might sound extravagant, but more and more houses are including this feature and the cost is minimized when the space is already available. Also, installing an elevator is often an affordable option compared to the cost of selling a home and relocating. If an elevator isn’t needed, the house has two very useful closets.</p><p><strong>21. One-Level Living <br /></strong>In an ideal world, all multistory homes would contain a full bath on the first or entry floor as well as a bedroom or room that could be converted into a bedroom. When building a new residence or renovating one, the existence of these two rooms are key to a home being aging friendly. Look at your home and the spaces in it. A den may become a first floor bedroom, permanently or during a convalescence. A playroom might evolve into an exercise room. You probably won’t anticipate all the future uses of your home, but the benefits of these improvements will be useful today and for many years.</p>
