Stoves Add Style and Function to Your Dallas Kitchen Remodel

Your Stove Is Command Central.  Start with Your Stove When Thinking about your Kitchen Remodel

Are you thinking about a kitchen remodel in your Dallas home, but you don't know where to start? Start with one appliance at a time, evaluating your priorities, the best use of your space, and your personality and style.

 
While the most important thing in a stove is of course function, a stove can also create a statement as a focal point for the kitchen. Many serious cooks prefer gas stoves, but you might also prefer a low-maintenance glass top range. A home designed for entertaining may need two ovens.
A retro stove can add character and coziness. A glass top stove's clean lines can look nice in a modern, minimalist kitchen and can make great use of limited space.
Consider shopping around for stoves as a first step in designing your new Dallas kitchen.

Best Dallas remodel trends: the welcoming entryway

Picture from My Home Ideas
Are you looking for a Dallas home remodel? Have you thought about your entryway?  The entryway is an important and often overlooked part of the house. Great designs for entryways offer space for an organization station as you come and go,. They will make the most of the natural lighting, make the most of the local climate, and create a beautiful welcome to guests. Perhaps you have always dreamed of having a real front porch where you can relax, entertain, and enjoy your neighborhood.
As you envision what you might like in an entryway, think about what needs a change: are the windows beautiful, offering the best front view possible? Do you want to be able to see who is on the street? Is privacy important to you, or would you like an inviting window that gives a glimpse of the beauty and character of your home?  Is the front walkway safe and adequate for your needs? What kinds of flooring materials inspire you? Do you have the lighting that you need to feel safe and comfortable at night?
Our trusted Dallas remodel experts can help you dream up the perfect welcome space for your home.
