Home Design Renderings Help Visualize Remodels

When I first speak with a new client, they tell me all the things they hate about their current space. It may be the wall separating the kitchen and living room making the cook (mom) feel isolated from the family.  Or it may be the unused, over sized tub they don't use and wish they had a huge shower instead. The flooring and countertops may be dated or the layout of the room is awkward for the family. Whatever the case may be, it leads for my favorite part of the remodeling process for me because I get to take their existing floorplan and with the help of amazing technology, create a totally different space for them while checking off all their wish list items.

Say good bye to the days of hand drawn floorplans and say hello to providing our clients with gorgeous life like 3D design renderings of their remodeling projects. Not only does this satisfy the designer/artist in me but allows our clients to see what their new kitchen, bathroom, addition, mud room, utility room etc. is going to look like before we start construction. They can also see what the tile, flooring, countertops, lighting is going to look like in their space and feel confident we made the right choices. Another HUGE plus for everyone.

There is a nasty rumor going around that remodeling a home can be stressful and chaotic, but we are here to tell you it is the complete opposite. Our clients tell us right away how much fun they are having through the process and how much they learn about their home's inner workings. Because this is such an important and powerful tool, I wanted to highlight some of our projects so you can see the magic that is involved in our remodeling process and how we make it enjoyable for each client.

Farmhouse Fab Master Bathroom Remodel

This was already a great bathroom back in it's day but the shower had leaks and the client loves, loves, LOVES everything farmhouse. After learning the lady of the house wanted shiplap galore and a bigger shower, I went to work removing the walls to the existing shower and creating a fun and fabulous farmhouse master bathroom Joanna Gaines would be proud of.

Bayou Kitchen Remodel

We were honored to transform these client's newly purchased retirement home on a beautiful lot along a bayou in South Bossier. The wish list included open concept living and kitchen area, using the existing black appliances and redesign the space to include dining in the kitchen. We incorporated black as an accent color and designed an island to double as a dining table. The transformation was so dramatic. They are now excited about simplifying and relaxing in their retirement years.

Cherry Ridge Master Bathroom Remodel

One of our number one requests in a master bathroom remodel is to turn the unused tub into a large walk in shower. That was the first item on this couple's wish list for their bathroom. The second was they wanted the color gray and lots of it. To accomplish their first item, I removed the walls to the existing shower and in it's place added a makeup area and another linen cabinet for the lady of the house. I then added two pony walls and created a large corner walk in shower. I kept the existing vanities where they were and added all new doors and drawers to keep the budget at bay. This master bathroom went from builder bland to a modern gray farmhouse design which the clients loved.

Tuscany Kitchen Remodel

This was such a fun family to work with. Busy, busy they are and the kitchen plays a huge part of their lives. They not only cook and eat here, but do homework, crafts and love to entertain. This family's wish was a wall of cabinets/storage, a bigger island, open concept, bar for the kids to sit, a huge dining table and a mom homework area for herself. Removing walls in software is the easy part. Making sure structurally it can happen is the important part. Because this is a two story home, one column was needed to hold the weight but because I am a bit OCD, I added another for balance and aesthetics. The results were magical.

Coastal Master Bathroom

This particular homeowner was ready for a bathroom update and was hoping we could work magic to make it feel larger. Her first wish was to remove the tub and create a shower. Done! To make the room feel larger I removed the wall diving the commode/shower area and the vanity. Because this client is so fun and adventurous, I was hoping she would be open to a beautiful pop of color in the flooring or wall tile and she was. Score for both of us. I feel this design captured her fun personality. Take a look.
