Remodel Your Dallas Traditional Home

Do you want to Redecorate and Remodel Your Traditional Home?

Where should you start?  Do you need the help of a professional interior designer?

A lot of homes in DFW (Dallas, Plano, Frisco, McKinney, Southlake, etc.) need updating. Some of the homes are 15 – 25 years old. Many new luxury homes in Frisco, TX, and McKinney are catching homeowners’ eye. They want their homes to be more like the newer homes.

The question is “Can I update my traditional home to be more like a new home?”

and the answer is Yes.

Design trends change over time and the trend was for darker homes and Old World furniture.

So you ask “How can I update my luxury home?”

Many of the older luxury homes in Dallas have great floor plans and are well-built. Exteriors don’t need to change at all.

The interior is where we can update your home to make it look like a new luxury home.

Most importantly, you should have a plan and a budget.

This is where you need the help of a professional interior designer. When making major changes you need to have a detailed plan of what will be changed and how much it will cost. You want to make sure that the house flows from room to room. In conclusion, the house should look like it was always that way.

We also changed the lighting, backsplash, countertops, rugs, draperies, furniture, and accessories.

Here are some of the things we can do to update your home:

Update your Kitchen.

The kitchen is the most important room in the house. It is also the most expensive room to redo. A lot of the kitchen cabinets in high-end homes are good quality and have nice detail, but the finish might be dated. For example, if you add a high-quality sprayed finish in an off-white paint, new hardware, a new light quartz countertop, new light fixtures, paint, and new appliances, you will have a new kitchen without completely remodeling the whole room

This is a 3D rendering of a kitchen for one of my clients. In this remodeling project, we completely remodeled the kitchen. We took down a wall and put in a laminated beam for support. This opens the living room to the kitchen.


Update your Master Bathroom

The same method as above can be used in your master bath. A master bathroom is a good room to completely remodel. This room is not as expensive to remodel as the kitchen and many selection preferences have changed. We are seeing more big space showers. Today’s showers may have body sprays, overhead rain showers, steam rooms, and beautiful tile. Lighting is also improved with sconce lights on either side of the mirror for more even make-up lighting.

I designed the master bath using computer-aided design to show the client would be able to visualize her space. We took some unused space out of the master bedroom to redesign and enlarge the bathroom.

This was a complete master bath makeover.

Rest of the House

The rest of the house needs to work off of the kitchen (the hub of the house). If you decide to go with a light theme in the kitchen then we need to make sure the rest of the house flows with the kitchen. We might just need to refinish the floors, change the light fixtures, and paint, or we might need to do more. It just depends on what you want to accomplish.

Furniture and the finishing touches

The question “Do I have to replace all my furniture?”
Answer “No”

A mixture of traditional pieces and pieces with clean lines is one of the best looks that can be created. You might replace most of your sofas and chairs to get a newer fresh look. They can have cleaner more transitional styling. If done correctly the mixture of traditional and cleaner lines gives you a very sophisticated artsy look. Add some transitional artwork and accessories; your home is now better than the new ones.

Updated lighter look. The original bedroom was very dark and heavy looking. We kept the nightstands and lamps and then we recovered their chaise. Then we added a new bed, bench, rug, carpet, bench, and bedspread. We also lighten up the wall color. photo credit: Beth Singer Photography
