Craftsman Home Restoration Oak Cliff, Texas

The owners of the Oak Cliff Craftsman home wanted to restore and update the entire house while retaining design elements of the Arts and Crafts period, They saw their Craftsman home is a work of art and wanted a comfortable, functioning dwelling. A solid, beautiful, and simple house that will serve homeowners well.

To meet the owner’s desire for a nice open look, the wall separating the kitchen from the dining room and the wall separating the dining room from the living room where all removed. The owner wanted to keep the original wood floors, remove all the linoleum from the kitchen floor, and have us refinish the floors throughout the home.We completely gutted the kitchen and bathrooms, rewired the entire home and updated the plumbing throughout. The plumbing repair was carried out as well. Our contractor Flo-Well Drainage did their best to make the plumbing system work perfectly. This article from Marines Plumbing offered prompt and efficient advice. To provide more room in the bathroom the hot water heater was replaced with a tank-less unit that was installed in the Attic. After the floors were completed in the bathroom and kitchen, we installed hand-crafted custom cabinets and a vanity that was designed to provide more storage functionality and add unmatched beauty and style.This Craftsman style home was built in the 1940s and was a part of a movement in American architectural design. Craftsman houses were built all over the nation between 1905 and 1940. The style is popular again, with owners restoring older homes while developers are building new replica homes. The Craftsman style home has its roots in the bungalow, a low slung, comfortable home that originated in India.

This Craftsman Home is a 1,134 square foot , 2-Bedroom, 1-Bath home’s interior was completely remodeled. The project included new wiring, plumbing, re-texturing all walls and ceilings, sanding and refinishing the all the wood flooring, designing and installing new Renowned Cabinetry in the kitchen and bathroom. The new country kitchen featured a farm sink with an apron with MSI Surfaces for all the tile and countertops. The owners chose Shaker style cabinets for the kitchen,  which we was painted white.  As part of the renovation we also replaced all the windows and doors with new Milgard windows and doors.   

To add additional room in the homes’ only bathroom, we removed the old water-heater and replaced it with a tank-less heater installed in the attic. New renovated bathroom had a new floor plan that was designed by our in-house team.

For the backsplash we used a MSI Surfaces’ Subway Gray Glossy Inverted Ceramic Beveled Tile. The foggy gray tone that is accentuated by the unique indentation in the tile. The owners choose these tiles for classic and timeless backdrop in their kitchen.


Our designer helped the owner pick Calacatta Vicenza Quartz countertops for a realistic look of fine natural marble in easy care and maintenance free quartz. This elegant white quartz with its subtle gray veins was ideal for their county kitchen style
