Five amazing Dallas kitchen makeovers [including costs suggestions]

And how much a kitchen remodel should cost in Dallas, Tx area

First thing first!

No matter if you are new to Dallas, Tx area or have lived here for a long time, it is a safe bet to say your home needs at least a refresh if not a full facelift. You are so ready for your kitchen to remodel to start but have no idea how much it should cost? Let’s talk briefly about prices and things to consider when determining which kitchen remodel will fit you best.

Kitchen refresh VS kitchen remodel

If your kitchen has great bones, but needs some TLC like a new backsplash or countertops.  If you like your current layout and needs merely some touch-ups and paint, you may be comfortable with kitchen refresh. You can have new cabinets color, impress your guests with gorgeous backsplash, and brighten up space with new quartz countertops. If you like the sleek look so marble, quartzite or a different natural stone can be a great addition to your kitchen. But before we dive too in, you need to determine what is the right scope of work (SOW) for your kitchen remodel.

Whether your kitchen is too cramped, or you like to entertain but have not enough place for your friends and family or just want to open up your kitchen and have an open space layout, you should consider a kitchen remodel. Tap to see the  lasted trends for a kitchen remodel in Dallas 

Ready to start?

There is more to consider before deciding whether you should go with a kitchen refresh, remodel, or complete custom remodel.

  1. How long you intend to live in your home?
  2. What is your home value?
  3. What year your house was built and when was your home last update or remodeled?
  4. Do you have a level of investment in mind?
  5. Do you have the funds or be using a lender to finance your home remodeling?

Kitchen remodel costs in Dallas, Tx

There are no two kitchens remodel alike. You know someone that knows someone that paid $25K for his kitchen renovation, and he likes his kitchen? Perfect! Make sure to ask him a few questions:

  1. How long did it take to complete the kitchen remodel?
  2. Does the homeowner had to coordinate and schedule all vendors and construction team?
  3. What changes were made to kitchen layout or footprint?
  4. How was the design and selection process? Did he make the selections on his own or hired an interior designer to help him with tiles, countertop, knobs, light fixtures, etc.?
  5. Did he buy custom made cabinets or purchased a shelf product?

We witnessed so many conversations like that when the “happy” homeowner makes excuses until he finally says it was a nightmare. If it sounds too cheap, there’s a catch, so don’t be tempted to take the lowest offer, especially if it is far too low than other estimate or budget you set to yourself.  We gathered some numbers for you to review and consider while you think about YOUR kitchen renovation here in Dallas, Tx:

The figures we’re sharing below are referring to remodeling companies or design/build firms that design & manage your kitchen remodeling from start to finish. 

Small Kitchen Remodel – if you love your kitchen layout but you still need to replace cabinets, countertop, backsplash, and more, the recommended starting budget is $65K.

Average Kitchen Remodel – if your kitchen is the average Texan kitchen size (and we all know what they say about Texan size, right?) that you like your layout, then we would suggest considering a starting budget of $80K. If you would like open space concept, raise your stating budget to $95K (due to extra demo and framing work).

Large Kitchen Remodel – if you’re a social butterfly that loves to host, and you are also happy with the current kitchen layout, we recommend a starting budget of $95K.

5 Design Trends To Steal For Your Kitchen & Bath In Dallas (And Won’t Look TOO Straining)

If you have been playing with the thought to remodel your kitchen & bath lately but wondered what will have the best impact for your Dallas home in case you’d like to sell it sometime in the future, you are in the right place! Joseph & Berry (yes, they are real people ;)) had the pleasure to participate in the recent kitchen & bath show and the largest builder show that took place in Las Vegas earlier this year. They also brought home an amazing Best in America Living award but that’s for a different blog 🙂

While they were exploring the latest and greatest technology we can now incorporate to your home, they also viewed the latest colors and trends that will fit best for the unique Dallas, Tx design and style that we have here. Remember, it may look phenomenal in that NY apartment you saw on Houzz or in Elle Decore but frankly? It may be way too modern for Texans and it could be a burden in the future if you’ll consider selling your home.

So, what are the kitchen & bath designs that we are going to do when you’ll start your Dallas remodeling journey?

Kitchen design and cabinet colors that add flair to your Dallas home:

We see a lot of black and blue shades that are trending right now, but if we need to make an educated guess about your kitchen, we will assume it is some shade of BROWN, is it? As we mentioned, not whatever fits L.A or NY can work in Dallas. A good interior designer will combine the client (you) wants and needs with the local market (Dallas, Tx) styles and population.

So, what do we actually recommend for kitchen & bath design ideas?

White is still the most popular color for kitchen designs, however, we noticed that the colors are warming up a little bit. If you consider remodeling your kitchen than hues of white kitchen cabinets with a combination of dark cabinets for the kitchen island, will definitely add flair to your home,  just like we did in this beautiful kitchen remodel in Dallas:

Gray shades are also warming up this season and we noticed a lot more greiges (gray & beige) in the show, check these selections we did marble hexagon tiles and modern light gray door style :

Statement Countertops For Your Kitchen & Bath

If you feel like a colored kitchen or bath cabinets is too bold for you, you should consider using a bold countertop instead. Joseph & Berry noticed many kitchen & bath designs with bold or darker countertops. You don’t have to go all the way in, simply choose a countertop with darker veins. It’s beautiful, elegant and can pop up the room. Think about a small power room with clean lines, marble backsplash tiles and dark countertop over a white vanity. Elegant and timeless!

Blending Designs: Traditional Mixed With Contemporary

We know a lot of homeowners in Dallas, Tx love traditional design but want to update their home to have an updated design. Don’t worry! Shaker style, which considered as a more traditional style, can blend very well with modern light fixtures, pulls, knobs, and modern tiles. Look at this kitchen remodel made in Dallas, Tx using shaker doors in modern gray:

LED Lighting

We know you think LED should be used in your backyard or to light up your driveway, well, we have news for you! It is 2019 and if you haven’t done that yet, think about changing your light bulbs to LED anywhere you can. It is a bit more costly at the beginning, but in the long run, it will actually save you money. It’s not just as it’s energy efficient lighting, and eco-friendly lighting solution, as it lasts longer than a regular bulb, and thanks to the talented lighting designers, we have a beautiful variety of LED light fixtures to choose from!

Geometric and Cement Tiles

You may notice that trend in the fashion industry for a while now, and now we are happy to implement those trends to your kitchen & bath! The tile selections that we saw at the kitchen & bath design show and builders show were absolutely mind-blowing! We have designed many areas using printed cement tiles as well as geometric tiles for many rooms like kitchen backsplash and kitchen flooring, entryway, powder room flooring, master bathroom, and mud rooms. Get some inspiration with this modern design that can work very well for your next  Dallas kitchen & bath remodel:

#3. What should I get from my Kitchen & Bath Designer?

During the design process, your designer should show you several bathroom remodeling pictures, inspiration boards, or any other visual image that can explain the design vision.

Before construction starts, you should have the following items in your hand from the designer:

  1.  Renderings of the bathroom and any other relevant spaces
  2.  Selection sheet – a list of every material planned for your bathroom makeover. For example exact tub, tiles, paint colors, bathroom floor tiles, stone, plumbing fixtures, etc.
  3. Detailed cabinet drawings and elevations along with measurements, colors, and material specs (solid wood, MDF, particle board, etc.)
  4. Jobsite visit schedule – A great designer will visit the job site during the construction phase at least twice. At Joseph & Berry, our designers strive to visit the sites on a weekly basis.

#4: Bathroom Remodeling Contractors in Dallas

Who is the right professional to remodel my bathroom? Many options stand in front of you, let’s figure this out once and for all.

Design-Build Company- a one stop shop that has the whole team working under one roof. This includes all team members for the design phase and the construction phase. Design-Build companies in the Dallas area will do projects as small as a single bathroom, a kitchen, whole house remodel, or custom home. [Design- Build is who you should consider hiring if you prefer one point of contact for all your questions – design and construction]

General Contractor- A general contractor is responsible for day to day oversight of a construction site, management of vendors and trades. Typically, a general contractor will get a set of plans that are ready to be built from a 3rd party interior designer. [Consider hiring if you want to work with a specific bathroom designer]

One Man Show [“Chuck in a Truck”] – Typically someone that builds A-Z by himself or with very little help from trades and friends. [Consider hiring for small space and simple home improvements, such as a handyman project or fixing something- always get a strong recommendation and a warranty/guarantee]

#6: Bathroom Remodeling Companies [How to choose the best one for me]

1. Check Online Reviews- ask your bathroom contractor to provide you with 1-3 past client’s contact information that will share their experience.
If your contractor fails to provide you with names you should stay away.

2. Project Manager on Site- who will run my project, and how many times will I see him? At Joseph & Berry, our Project Managers visit their job sites EVERYDAY. This is not the industry standard, a typical contractor will visit your site ONCE a week, it is good to find this out up front.

3. Website Portfolio- Check their previous projects and the quality of their photos. Good quality photos usually mean a company takes pride in their work and have very happy homeowners that are glad to show off their project. Great photos also mean a company takes part in the industry design competitions and belong to professional associations such as NARI, Dallas Builder Association, IDS, ASID and AIA.

4. Budget- Remodeling should be budgeted carefully, make sure that you work with a company that offers you a realistic budget that fits your comfort zone.

5. Detailed Scope of Work in Writing, including specifications and materials- Before you sign any paperwork, you need to know exactly how many can lights your contractor plans to install, the type of fixtures, vanity, glass, and tiles. There is no room for assumptions, if it is not clear enough, it will work against you.

6. Warranty- Make sure that your contractor is standing behind their work, ask for at least a 2-year warranty. At Joseph & Berry, we are so confident in our craftsmanship, materials, and ability to deliver the quality that we offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY!

7. Communication - The last and most important one. Make sure that you are standing in front of people you believe will answer your phone when things get shaky. Unfortunately, in remodeling, things go wrong from time to time. You must make sure that your contractor will be upfront about addressing those issues and decent enough to stand behind his mistakes.

Almost every person shares that same exact feeling every now and then, don’t feel like you can’t handle it, you got this!

You want to pour yourself a glass of wine, open a bottle of St. Pellegrino with a piece of lime and simply relax in your pampering steam shower or soaking bath. YES! You deserve it! Imagine yourself in an indulging steam bath, where you can sit down or even lay down on your shower bench and relax (just like you did in that fancy spa, remember?). Your towels are waiting for you, heated, on the towel warmer. Dim the lights and turn on some soft music without getting out your shower… even better than a spa! Ugh, what a nice daydream.
WAKE UP! It can actually BE your own bathroom.

In the meantime, don’t wait any longer, turn the water on and fill up that tub. You deserve it.
