Dallas Home Remodeling Ideas By Room

Are you thinking of renovations for your Dallas home, but you don't know where to start? Working out a plan for home remodeling can be a huge challenge, but it's also a lot of fun.

A remodeling project is an opportunity to breathe new life into your property. This is your chance to add your own personal sense of style to your house and tailor it to your lifestyle so you'll be comfortable living there for many years to come.

Or, maybe you know you're thinking of selling in the near future—if so, this is the perfect time for a classic remodel that will increase the appeal and value of your home.

But what can you change or add that will accomplish those goals? We'll go room by room to offer you some ideas for remodeling and hopefully inspire you to plan the perfect renovation.

When you've got an idea of what you're looking for, don't burden yourself with the stress and hassle of calling multiple contractors and remodeling companies to take care of this, that, and the other thing—just call Mr. Handyman of Dallas to reach a team of professionals who have the experience and skill to bring your vision to life with stunning custom designs.


It makes sense to start in the kitchen. It's a room that gets a lot of use, but more importantly, kitchens often serve as the heart of a family home. Your kitchen doesn't just need to work properly and look nice, it needs to be optimized in a way that best serves your needs so you can focus on what really matters—your epic culinary creations. For example, did you know that the stove, refrigerator, and sink should be laid out in a triangle configuration to maximize efficiency when you're cooking?

Here are some kitchen improvements your handyman can tackle:

  • Custom cabinets that utilize the available space and are conveniently located to maximize your work flow

  • A kitchen island to add storage and workspace

  • New countertops in the material and color of your choice

  • A tile backsplash—tiles come in a dizzying array of styles, so the perfect backsplash can really change the look of the kitchen for the better


The bathroom might not be the first place you think of, but it can really make or break a house. It's used so many times per day, you might as well make it an enjoyable place to be. The right renovations can turn your bathroom from, well, just a bathroom into your own personal home spa for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Bathroom remodel options include:

  • Repairing or replacing drywall or cement board

  • Installing tile on the floor and walls

  • Installing a new toilet

  • Putting in a new faucet or showerhead

  • Installing a bathtub

  • Adding a new mirror

  • Designing a custom vanity table that will make your beauty routine the best part of your day

Deck, Porch, or Patio

So many of our most precious memories at home don't even happen inside the house. Instead, they take place on the deck with the grill fired up and friends gathered around to enjoy the sunshine and summer breeze.

There's no doubt our decks, porches, and patios are an important part of our homes, and they deserve the royal treatment just as much as the inside of the house. If your deck is in poor repair, getting it in a safe and attractive condition is the first step. Mr. Handyman's deck repair services include:

  • Replacing broken or cracked boards

  • Sanding off splinters and peeling paint

  • Refinishing with new paint or wood stain and sealant

  • Securing wobbly railings

  • Repairing or replacing stairs

  • Pressure washing

  • Screen door and window repair

  • Fixing grading and drainage issues

But don't stop at just repair! After all, this is about renovation and remodeling. Shoot for the stars and think about what would really push your deck over the top from "a nice place" to "the best part of the house." Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Built-in bench seating around the perimeter of the deck

  • Classic porch swing

  • Raised wooden walkway leading to a secluded gazebo

  • Custom designed flower boxes and built-in planters

  • Countertop to create an outdoor kitchen area by the grill

  • TV mounted on the outside of the house so you can watch the game outdoors

Don't have a deck, porch, or patio? No problem—Mr. Handyman can create your fantasy outdoor living space from the ground up!


The basement often gets neglected when it's time for remodeling—it gets neglected during construction too, for that matter. If your basement is unfinished, or it's finished but doesn't meet your family's needs, you're sitting on a goldmine of wasted space.

Consider these basement renovation possibilities:

  • Install drywall and flooring

  • Install or relocate lighting fixtures, switches, and outlets

  • Assemble new furniture (remember, it might be impossible to get already-assembled large furniture into the basement)

  • Add a room such as a spare bedroom, work-from-home office, game room, studio, playroom, home gym, wine cellar, or workshop

  • Add custom-built storage solutions such as large cabinets for sports equipment, benches with toy boxes underneath, or cubbyhole shelving

Living Room

The living room is often one of the last rooms to get remodeled because, unlike a kitchen or bathroom, it's basically a big room with few fixtures or moving parts. But with the right renovation, it can be so much more than just a big room. Some living room remodel options include:

  • Custom built-in bookcases

  • Custom designed mantel over the fireplace or TV

  • Entertainment center that actually has room for all your game consoles and devices

  • Built-in window seat

  • Wall-mounted television

  • Display shelves

  • Desk that folds up on the wall to save space
