Preparing Your Home for the Holidays

Creating an Unforgettable Holiday Season Filled with Joy and Excitement!

As the holiday season draws near, I can't help but feel a rush of anticipation and excitement. Being a Texan, I know that this time of year brings much anticipated cooler temperatures and cozy fires, as well as a sense of warmth and togetherness that is truly special.

But let's be honest, preparing for the holidays can sometimes feel like a daunting task. The endless to-do lists and the pressure to create magical moments can all become overwhelming. That's why we’re here to lend a helping hand.

We have gathered expert advice and put together a collection of ideas that will hopefully make your holiday season even more enjoyable. From unique gift ideas to mouthwatering recipes, we've got you covered. So let's embark on a journey to create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

Declutter Your Home for a Stress-Free Holiday Season

Taking the time to declutter your home before and after the holidays is a great first step towards a more enjoyable holiday season. It not only creates a cleaner environment but also reduces stress. 

Start by sorting through your refrigerator and pantry, discarding expired items or things you no longer need. Next, think about reorganizing your kitchen cabinets. This will help you test run appliances that might only be used during the holidays, such as stand mixers or warming trays. Additionally, it will allow you to dust off dishes and glassware reserved for special occasions. 

By decluttering and organizing, you can avoid broken items and unnecessary trips to the store. Consider moving non-holiday items into baskets or bins to create more space for seasonal decor.

Weeks before the holidays is a good time to go through clothes and toys. Decluttering and cleaning out your clothes, closets and toys before the holiday season presents a wonderful opportunity to give back to your community. As you sort through items, consider setting aside those that are still in good condition but no longer needed or used. These can be donated to local charities, shelters, or thrift stores.

Donating gently used clothing and toys not only helps clear your space, but it also makes a significant difference in the lives of others. Your pre-loved items could become cherished possessions for someone else, providing warmth, comfort, and entertainment. This act of giving can be particularly impactful during the holiday season, a time when many families struggle with expenses and children dream of receiving gifts.

In addition, involving your children in the process of selecting toys to donate can teach them valuable lessons about empathy, generosity, and gratitude. It's a practical way to show them how their actions can have a positive impact on others.

So as you prepare for the holiday season, remember that decluttering is not just about creating a more organized home for yourself. It's also about extending kindness and support to those in need within your community. The benefits of this process extend far beyond your own home, contributing to a sense of unity and shared celebration during the holiday season.

Stock Your Pantry and Home with the Essentials 

After decluttering, it's the perfect time to stock your pantry with essential ingredients for baking and cooking. Keep an eye on weekly sales at local stores or consider buying in bulk to save money. Prioritize non-perishable items to prevent overspending when it matters most. 

In addition to the pantry,  you can turn your  attention to the rest of the house. The living room, for instance, needs a few cozy touches like extra throw blankets and pillows for those chilly winter nights. Stock up on board games and movies for entertainment during family gatherings.

The bathroom is another area that can't be overlooked. Extra towels, toilet paper, and toiletries are essential for accommodating guests. Make their stay extra welcoming by adding festive hand towels and holiday candles! Main Street Mercantile, located locally in Lewisville, TX, is a great place to shop for beautiful items for all the spaces in your home. While you’re there you can also check out a variety of gift options for everyone on your holiday shopping list! 

In the kitchen, aside from food, ensure there's an ample supply of dish soap, sponges, and dishwasher tablets. It's surprising how quickly these run out when you're cooking and entertaining regularly!

Stocking up on these essentials not only ensures you’re prepared but also allows you more time to fully enjoy the holiday season without the stress of last-minute shopping. Thus, giving you more time to spend with loved ones, which is what the holidays are truly about.

Prepare Your Home for Gatherings

Deep cleaning high-traffic areas and spaces now will save you time during the busy days. Take the time to wash windows, clean outdoor spaces, and tidy up flower beds and entrances. Additionally, clean carpets or wash rugs, dust off light fixtures, and pay attention to the powder bathroom. 

Deep cleaning your home in preparation for the holiday season doesn't have to be an overwhelming and daunting task. Here are some tips to make it more manageable:

  1. Prioritize high-traffic areas: Focus on cleaning the areas where family and friends will spend the most time gathering, such as the living room, dining area, and kitchen. These spaces tend to accumulate the most dirt and clutter.
  2. Break it down into smaller tasks: Instead of trying to tackle everything at once, divide your deep cleaning tasks into smaller, more manageable chunks. For example, dedicate one day to cleaning windows, another day to tidying up outdoor spaces, and so on.
  3. Get the whole family involved: Assign specific tasks to each family member to lighten the workload. This not only makes the cleaning process faster but also gives everyone a sense of responsibility and accomplishment.
  4. Set a schedule: Create a cleaning schedule leading up to the holidays, spreading out the tasks over several weeks. This way, you won't feel overwhelmed by trying to do everything in a short amount of time.
  5. Use efficient cleaning tools and products: Invest in quality cleaning tools and products that can help you get the job done more effectively and efficiently. For example, microfiber cloths are great for dusting, and multipurpose cleaners can save you time and effort.
  6. Take breaks and reward yourself: Deep cleaning can be physically and mentally exhausting, so remember to take breaks when needed. Treat yourself to small rewards after completing each task to stay motivated.

Remember, deep cleaning now will save you from last-minute stress and allow you to fully enjoy the holiday season with a clean and welcoming home. 

Create a Wrapping Station to Streamline Gift-Wrapping 

Designating a specific location in your home as a wrapping station can greatly streamline the gift-wrapping process. This organized space will help keep supplies in one place and enable you to wrap gifts ahead of time. 

You can turn any small, unused space into a wrapping station that can greatly enhance your gift-giving process. Start by identifying an underutilized area in your home - this could be a corner of a spare room, a section of your home office, or even an empty closet. Clear out the space and introduce some compact storage solutions such as bins or baskets to hold your wrapping paper, ribbons, and other essentials. Consider purchasing gift wrap organizers available on Amazon to maintain a neat and tidy wrapping area.

If you're working with a particularly small area, consider using vertical space by installing hooks or pegboards on the wall for hanging supplies. A small table or portable surface can serve as your workspace for wrapping gifts. By organizing these elements efficiently, you can transform any small space into a functional, convenient wrapping station.

A wrapping station can be useful throughout the year, not just for the holidays. It allows you to wrap gifts in advance, saving you time and reducing stress during busy periods. Additionally, having all your supplies in one place makes it easier to keep track of what you have and avoid buying duplicates. So, whether it's a birthday, anniversary, or any other special occasion, your wrapping station will be there to help you create beautifully wrapped gifts with ease.

Decorating Tips to Transform Your Home into a Holiday Haven

Begin by focusing on the main rooms where you will entertain and gather with loved ones. One great place to start is the entryway, as it sets the first impression for guests entering your home. Consider adding a small console table or bench near the front door for a convenient spot for guests to set down gifts or purses. 

To make your holiday decorations truly special, engage all five senses. For sight, incorporate beautiful ornaments, garlands, and wreaths throughout your home. Don't forget to hang stringed lights or candles on stair banisters to create a cozy ambiance. For touch, place plush pillows or throws on couches and chairs, inviting your guests to relax and get comfortable.

Music is another important element in creating a festive atmosphere. Play cheerful holiday tunes throughout the house to uplift everyone's spirits.

Light scented candles or use essential oil diffusers with holiday-inspired fragrances like cinnamon, pine, or peppermint. The pleasant aroma will instantly make your home feel warm and inviting. Locally,  Flourish Flowers & Gifts has a great selection of candles, wonderful gift ideas,  as well as floral arrangements to add that extra special touch! 

Lastly, do not forget about taste! Display special treats or homemade cookies in decorative jars or trays. This not only adds a delicious touch but also serves as a delightful centerpiece. It’s also a wonderful gesture to send your guests home with a littles something sweet! 

In terms of timing, it's generally a good idea to start decorating for the holidays a few weeks before the actual celebration. This allows you enough time to fully enjoy your decorations and make any adjustments if needed. However, there are no hard and fast rules - ultimately, it's up to you to decide when you want to start and how long you want to keep your decorations up.

By following these practical tips, you can create a beautifully decorated space that will bring joy and cheer to your home during the holiday season.

A Welcoming Guest Room 

It’s a top priority usually to make our guests feel comfortable and special during their holiday stay. A few simple touches can create a welcoming guest room that makes your family or friends feel right at home! It’s important to invest in quality linens and pillows to create a luxurious experience. Layer bedding for temperature control and provide a velvety throw for a cozy reading nook. Pay attention to lighting on both sides of the bed and consider adding a small coffee station or leaving a basket with snacks, a good book, a TV remote, and water bottles for added convenience. 

Additionally, create a warm and inviting atmosphere by ensuring you have a  designated area for guests to relax and unwind, such as a cozy seating arrangement with plush cushions and blankets for them to enjoy the board games and holiday movies comfortably. 

Finally, take the time to personally greet each guest upon arrival and make them feel welcomed and valued. (Especially the youngest guests and definitely the furry favorites.) Show genuine interest in their well-being and offer assistance with any needs or questions they may have. By implementing these thoughtful touches, you can ensure that your visitors and guests feel at home and relaxed during the busy holiday season.

Prioritize Your Well-Being

After all of this hard work, it's of utmost importance to also take care of yourself and your well-being during this busy time of year. Remember to prioritize self-care and make time for activities that bring you joy and relaxation. Consider taking breaks from the holiday preparations to engage in activities like reading a book, going for a walk in nature, or practicing mindfulness exercises.

Treat yourself to relaxation after a long day of shopping with lavender bath salts, eucalyptus candles and a face mask. Additionally, spend a Sunday preparing quick and easy meals that can be frozen and easily cooked in a crockpot on busy days.

In addition to these preparations, now is a good time to consider completing those small home improvement projects. Touch up paint in areas that need it, such as scuffed walls or chipped baseboards. Adding wallpaper to the powder room can give it a fresh and updated look. Consider updating kitchen fixtures, such as faucets or cabinet handles, to give your kitchen a modern touch. Installing dimmers and canned lighting in your living area can create a cozy and festive atmosphere for gatherings with family and friends. These simple improvements may seem small, but they can have a big impact, improving the  overall ambiance as well as your personal satisfaction with your home. 

By following these tips and planning ahead, you can ensure a more stress-free and enjoyable holiday season. Embrace the festive spirit and create lasting memories with your loved ones while also taking care of yourself and prioritizing your well-being. Remember, the holiday season is about more than just gifts and decorations; it's about spending quality time with those who matter most to you. So, take a moment to relax, recharge, and appreciate the joy and warmth that this special time of year brings. Happy holidays!

We’ll never walk away from a job until we’re certain our clients are happy with the results.

North Dallas Renovations was a pleasure to work with. They completed a total Master Bath renovation and I couldn't be more pleased with their quality of craftmanship as well as their attention to detail, communication and timeliness. They were able to take my vision and make it into an such a lovely space that I thoroughly enjoy. NDR provided me with a written and detailed scope of the renovation to be done, an estimated timeline of each phase and a cost schedule - there were no surprises besides a few that were unavoidable once the project was started and the guts of the MB were exposed. We have gone from an 80's pink and cream   busy bathroom to a calm, relaxing spa with muted tones. I will definitely be working with them again on other areas of our home and would definitely recommend them

North Dallas Renovations:

Did an excellent job in helping us repair water damage from freezing pipes to our rental townhouse.  Removed wood floor, replaced with tile, sheet rock repair, paint,  and all that was needed to get unit ready for our tenant to move back in.

They did what they said they would do and the job was done in a professional and timely manner.

I  would highly recommend them.

Marla Jennings- Office Manager

North Dalls Renovations took on our project of remediation of water damaged in our north dallas townhome.  Kyle Smith and his team have us the full scope of the project with a few options based on costs.  Once we made our decision, they jumped into the project and maintained a schedule that got us back to normal ahead of schedule.  They did what they said they would do with quality and attn to detail. I highly recommend them.

I had North Dallas Renovations, remodel my bathroom. They enlarged my small shower, added subway tiles and new shower floor tiles in the bathroom. They replaced the small vanity with a larger one, new hardware, mirror, sink, shower, and sink faucets.  They added a new toilet.  They rerouted the bathroom vent to the outside. They replaced the original bathroom door and added a pocket door. Lastly, they painted the walls and removed the popcorn ceiling. They smoothed ceilings and walls in the bathroom. They also added a recessed light in the hallway and painted walls and remove the popcorn ceiling.  They also refreshed the hallway closet after reclaiming a portion of it for the enlarged shower.  I was more than satisfied with the work.

Allen Almodovar

Kyle, Brady and his crew were professional, prompt and responsive. Master bath and kitchen updates look fantastic. No remodel project goes 100% smoothly, but their number one priority is your satisfaction. I've already requested their help on another project. Can never go wrong hiring great people who truly care. Highly recommend.


Kyle and his team did an awesome job for us.  We did a major renovation on the first floor of our house; laundry room, bath, dining room, kitchen and den.  We oped up walls, removed fur downs that hid lots of unexpected pipes, a/c and plumbing and took everything to stubs. It did take longer than we hoped and we lived in chaos for awhile. On top of that it was a pandemic and we were all home, so I expected the worse but it went relatively smoothly. When things weren't right, Kyle made sure they done to our satisfaction and we are thrilled with the results!


This is a fabulous company. I will be using their services exclusively from this point forward.  We remodeled our kitchen (1928 house) and found lots of issues, but none of them were overwhelming thanks to Kyle and his crew.  I went from Oh, no to OMG - Wow!  I now have a dream kitchen.  Didn't really think it would be this wonderful.  The crew of workers are true artisans who truly care about doing a great job...not just a "get it done" mentality.

Joel Reynolds

This is our second project with North Dallas Renovations. Job well done, on time, great quality work for our Master Bath reno and tiles for two guest bath. Kyle and his team are courteous, easy to work with. His crew were always on time, and made sure everything was done with little mess as possible. Highly recommend their service and work!

Christina C

Excellent job! Workers showed up every day and on time! Quality work! Quality products! Excellent pricing! Excellent communication! Work performed as promised and in a very timely manner! Would highly recommend and would definitely use them again for any future work needed! I had a full kitchen - dining reno including taking out a wall and a full master bath remodel including taking out a raised sauna tub and a full guest bath remodel.  All top notch work!  Kyle and his team are wonderful to work with!


Complete Interior Renovation, including: new Kitchen; 4 new bathrooms with plumbing updates; laundry room; hardwood, tile, & carpet; removing load bearing walls, outdoor siding; painting; updating electrical; replacing upstair outdoor balcony with rod iron work.

Very pleasant experience dealing with honest, straightforward, and open communications.  Contractor provided numerous cost-effective and ergonomics suggestions resulting in absolute 1st  class quality and appearance throughout.  Friendly crew and always on time and wiling to make any minor changes requested.  Regular presence by company owner insured quality and timelines of finished product. The onsite supervisor was simply outstanding.



Our scope of work - we were wanting our ceiling renovated. We live in an old church. The original ceiling is wood planks but it has been covered for many years by ugly sheet rock. We wanted the sheet rock and all the nails removed, non-functional fluorescent light fixtures and another chandelier removed, ceiling cleaned and the spaces between planks caulked, new gas/electrical lines run for a new HVAC system we are going to have installed and new lighting installed.

Kyle answered our request for a bid very promptly. Within the week, he sent a text and scheduled an appointment to come and bid our project. He came to our house, we described the work we wanted done, he made notes and then let us know he would be in contact. The next week his company sent an email with information detailing their company and processes. The next day our bid was worked and attached to an email. The bid was detailed and to our satisfaction. NDR sent another email letting us know when a crew could come and start the work. We scheduled quickly. The next day, the crew was here with a supervisor. I described the work we were wanting done to the crew and they immediately began work.

The crew, Byron and Victor, were professional, courteous and respectful of our property. There was another gentleman that came to help on the 3rd and 4th days but I do not remember his name. He was just as professional as the other gentlemen. The job was big and tedious. Byron needed to replace a couple of places on the ceiling that were rotten and he did some carpentry magic. We were quite pleased with the patches. They blended right in with the aesthetic of the ceiling. Never once did I have any doubts that they knew what they were doing. It took four days. The crew did an amazing job under not so fun/glamorous conditions. At the end of every day, they cleaned up the area as was reasonable to the scope of work. The finished project was just as we envisioned. Brady, came at the end of the day on the last day with a large trailer and helped load and break down the work area. It was a hot and humid day and I did not envy them.

We believe the price was fair, the quality of work worth every penny and they met the deadlines.

We have other future renovation/remodeling projects coming up in the future and we will be contacting NDR to do those projects for us. I would recommend NDR to anyone looking for a trustworthy company to come into your home and do the job you want. Please note that the photos I have posted include our house in chaos. It is a work-in-progress.

Marlina Reese

We have hired Kyle's team for 2 remodels (Master Bathroom and Kitchen).  Kyle is honest in his pricing and project timeframe.  His team are hardworking, considerate, and will keep working until the project is complete.  We highly recommend North Dallas Renovations and would be happy to share our experiences working with Kyle.

Steve Middlebrook

Kyle Smith and his team did an excellent job of our guest bathroom (complete remodel).  The estimates were reasonable and communication throughout was well maintained. We are very happy of how it turned out and even more impressed by the professionalism and efficiency of his guys on the job.  Highly recommend!

Karen Rebodos

We came across North Dallas Renovations when we’re looking for someone to help us fix some subfloor issues on our second story.

We met with Kyle from North Dallas Renovations along with a few other companies but when it came time to choose we went with North Dallas Renovations.  Here are a few reasons why we went with Kyle‘s company:

1. Great communication
2. Very Professional
3. Very Knowledgeable

Once we knew the next steps on the subfloor, Kyle took the time to answer our questions about a few other items which led us to expanding the project list.  He even saved us some money by doing our tile work which was originally going to be done by one of the big box stores

Kyle scheduled the walk-through when the project was completed. There were no issues and the only question we had was if he would work with us on our next project!!!

Now that the project is completed here are a few more things I will say about Kyle and North Dallas Renovations:

1. Excellent Service
2. Detail Oriented
3. Supportive
4. Responsive
5. Great Team
6. Punctual

So, if you have a project and you’re looking for a company to help you then I urge you to reach out to Kyle at North Dallas Renovations. It will be the best decision ever!!!


Kyle and his team were fantastic! Received a detailed estimate, realistic time frame and everything went according to the plan. The work was done specific to my requests, workers were professional and courteous. The finished product is exactly what I wanted from the project.

Paula Berry

Kyle Smith and his team did my complete bathroom tear-out and remodel.  Very professional and gave us exactly what we wanted!  Tore out garden tub, window, shower, cabinets, faucets, floor and old shower.  Installed large shower, glass block window, all new sinks and faucets, granite countertops, cabinets, tile floor and lighting.  Always on time, made minor changes we wanted and charged a reasonable and fair price.  I did have a total of 4 bids and Kyle was the contractor that listened to exactly what we wanted.  Couldn't be more pleased.   Attached some pictures of the completed job.  VERY SATISFIED WITH THE JOB AND THE PRICE!

Michael Podlucky

Just about every area of my home needed something repaired or upgraded. Framing, drywall, electrical, plumbing, tile work, shower glass, granite, lighting, resurfacing and painting, staining, and during a mid-project emergency, rebuilding the exterior chimney surround. From my initial consultation with Kyle, I knew he was the one to tackle the job. Great communication, attentive to what I was trying to accomplish within budget, offered great ideas and sources. Such an incredibly wonderful crew... knowledgeable, professional, courteous, and truly just really nice.  Set the tone for the whole project. With weeks of work (it was a long list!), it could have been tense and stressful. It was the exact opposite. There were quite a few times when I noticed they went above and beyond the task, going outside the scope to make sure an area was perfect. Had I known what a positive experience it would be, I would not have put it off for so long. Highest recommendation.

Tina B

This is my second project Kyle and North Dallas Renovations has done for me this year.  He and his team recently painted an investment property for me and the work is exemplary.  My Realtor was blown away by the job Kyle 's team did.  He said "a Painter can either make you or break you on a house!...and my project was unbelievably perfect!  Kyle is dependable and will offer great suggestions for your consideration.  He goes beyond the call of duty to make the experience great...and his painters are awesome too!

Rebecca Straughn

Definitely 5 stars to Kyle and crew. We are very happy with our master bath renovation with North Dallas Renovations. We must’ve taken around 10 different quotes from a chuck in truck to the brick and mortar remodeling show rooms. Apart from Kyle’s quote being competitive we just really liked his attitude and sincerity. We had some apprehensions given they are relatively new in the business but we are glad we chose them. Things we value in working with remodeling contractor is communication, sticking closed to estimated schedule, efficient project management, and good crew. Full marks on all fronts - all mails and text were always responded to efficiently, work was done within stipulated time, we never had to follow up with anyone individually, everyone showed up on time and best part is Kyle’s work crew is amazing - friendly, courteous, hard working (they stayed late many days finishing what they wanted to accomplish in a day) , cleaned up after every work day, and of course most importantly knew what they were doing - you can tell they have the experience. We never hesitated leaving the house with them to run small or long errands. Kyle gave us recommendations on where we can look for tiles, bath hardware and other accessories. All in all really happy with the work and workmanship. Highly recommend them for renovation projects.


Worked with NDR recently to do some (much needed) updates to our bathroom and to help us with some ceiling repairs.  Very professional, trustworthy, and the team did a great job.  My house was well taken care of during the entire process and the results look great.  We are very happy and will be repeat customers.

Matthew Bass

Kyle and his team at North Dallas Renovations went above and beyond to help me renovate my “fixer upper” into the home I’d always wanted.

My project, which completed in February 2018, included installing new wood and tile floors and baseboards throughout the house; renovating two bathrooms (including removing wallpaper and texturing walls); installing granite countertops, sink, faucet, disposal, and backsplash in the kitchen; installing a new back door and siding; and refinishing stairs, front door, and cabinetry.

Kyle's pricing was fair, and he scheduled work to complete as quickly and smoothly as possible. Throughout the process, I came to rely on Kyle’s patience, honesty, and sound advice. Several times, I found myself rethinking design choices I had made, and Kyle was quick to adapt, helping me select products and finishes that would complement the house.

Every member of Kyle’s team was friendly, conscientious, and took pride in his work, and they were all exceptionally trustworthy—I knew I could leave them alone with my house and even my “fur kid.”

I’m extremely pleased with the results of this project, and I would definitely work with Kyle and team again!

Stacy Hecht

Decided to replace counters and backsplash in our house we had recently purchased.  Kyle was very professional and detail oriented.  His team did a fantastic job both with demolition and installation.  Picked an intricate backsplash and the tile installer did a phenomenal job.  

Not the cheapest nor the most expensive but their work is outstanding. Recommended to our realtor and neighbors. Definitely would use again!

David Gillespie

North Dallas Renovations did a total update on our home.  We were in a time pinch to move in so they worked non stop to get it done.  They painted all walls cabinets and doors; renovated 2 bathrooms, (1 with a total floor plan change); replaced multiple light fixtures; opened up some doorways; closed some doorways and did the demo and finish work on our kitchen remodel.

Kyle is very patient and worked with me when decisions were needed.  They did a great job throughout.  I will use them again.

Their pricing was fair and transparent.  Every item on the proposal was broken out and I was even able to purchase some items that he then removed from the invoice.  Kyle has vendor relationships which result in great pricing for many big ticket items like granite.

Since ours was a big job, it took several weeks.  Kyle was very good about giving me updates and quoting me price changes with each change order (and there were many).

Would highly recommend Kyle and his team.

Thank you Kyle!

Anita Lansmon

After meeting with many contractors, most of whom never got back to us with a quote, we were lucky enough to be put in contact with Kyle through a mutual friend. He and his team did an excellent job helping us remodel two bathrooms and all flooring after a water leak. We were beyond impressed with his quick communication and availability to help us with any and all questions or issues. Not to mention, their work is beautiful! I cannot recommend North Dallas Renovations enough, and I've already passed on Kyle's info to multiple friends!

Kelly M

Kyle and his team made the renovation process as easy as possible and we asked for a lot - everything from new floors to new countertops to 3 built-ins (entertainment center, wine bar and an office desk and shelves). All renovations uproot your life but they made it more bearable. His team was always on time and worked all hours to meet the deadline. Kyle was very responsive when we had questions or needed to talk through ideas. We will be using them for future projects!

Christine Pallett

Would have gave 10 stars if I could. Kyle and his team did an amazing job renovating my townhouse from top to bottom. everything was done on time, including my endless requests and changes.

I did a compete renovation including taking out old carpets and flooring and installing new laminate floors through out the house and tile floor in the bathrooms, a complete remodeling of the kitchen, new appliances, paint through out the whole house, installation of new vanities  and wall tile in the bathrooms. everything was done exactly as I envisioned it.

It took about 4-5 weeks to make my 1400sft townhouse in to a dream come true for me.

Rita Vindman

North Dallas Renovations was hired to remodel our master bath after an exhaustive search of numerous companies. Their promptness, professionalism, and attention to detail is the reason that they will be the only call I make next time we need some work done. Would highly recommend to anyone.


We feel so lucky to have met and hired Kyle Smith with North Dallas Renovations! Kyle is so likeable and really helped us decide what we needed within our budget. The work we had done (popcorn removal; painting;  reframing exterior; back patio redesign) is incredible and perfect! His team is easy to talk with and very professional. Most importantly, every single person was so sweet to my dogs which was rather helpful and quite unexpected! In fact, we are so happy we are about to hire him for more painting.


We hired Kyle and his team to renovate our kitchen, install wood floor and tile throughout the downstairs, paint several rooms, and set up a media room with a projector and screen.

Given our project we wanted a one-stop-shop and that's what we got. Every step of the process was clear and Kyle was in constant contact with updates, options, and timescales. The quote was fully transparent - no other firm who quoted us were clear with their pricing and some appeared to deliberately disguise the cost of things.

The crew were all nice guys, very polite and would clean up at the end of each day.

Would highly recommend for any home improvements, and we will be using them again in future too.

Steve Harrison

Kyle and Team did a great job renovating my kitchen, master bath,  guest bath and bedroom. The work was top quality and they finished on time and on budget. They had a sense of urgency and on the second day i saw six contractors in the house that did most of the demo and painting in one day - absolutely transformed the rooms.

Kyle is also very patient and knowledgeable especially when we couldnt make up our mind about Granite or Quartz. We ended up going with Quartz from his recommended supplier (Galaxy Granite) that was thousands less than Costco quote.

All in all a very professional experience - the contractors were experienced and flexible and even incorporated a few changes we sprung on them when the work started.

Gourav G

Kyle and his employees were excellent to work with, they were very polite and friendly. They completed an entire home renovation within the timeframe discussed and everything was beautiful when done. I had new granite installed in both bathrooms and kitchen. Outside and inside painted. New flooring throughout entire house. New lighting, new appliances, bathroom showers/tubs refinished. There weren't very many areas that went untouched. He coordinated all of the work needed which makes for a very pleasant and stress fee renovation. There were also a few unknowns like the granite in the kitchen being too heavy for bar. His team had to build a wall to hold the counter top. Finished product was beautiful.

Marjie S

Kyle and his team were intensely focused on providing quality work and didn't rest until we were totally satisfied.  We had some tough projects and they did phenomenal!  They also were extremely respectful and cleaned up any work space even better than when they arrived. I will recommend them to everyone and will call on them again.


Kyle and his team at North Dallas Renovations were truly amazing! Everyone that came out to the site, whether it be electricians or painters, were very professional and friendly. They helped us create a space that looks like a home for our homeless youth. We will use them again and highly recommend them!

Hinkle Kim

Kyle and his team are A+. I had the team of Brandon (project manager), Feliciano (foreman), and Ever as Painter lead. All are perfectionists and when a problem pops up (as they will with an older home like mine) they come up with a solution and actually get back to you a.s.a.p. if you call. Brandon was very hands on  with the project checking in daily, and answering phone fast if off site. I would request Ever again, for sure, he is a perfectionist, as am I (I am quite picky). The quality control is good and they check most things on their own, but if something is missed and you request a look, they fix it fast. Feliciano fixed things not on the list like leveling my doors... He is awesome. I was treated with respect as was my house. I have had terrible experiences with other companies painting... in the past, and this was very refreshing.See the before and after pics. They speak for themselves.

We contracted North Dallas Renovations to remodel our kitchen. Kyle and Kim were great in the planning stages of the project helping us define the scope of the changes and working through the details. The project manager, Brandon, was always open to discuss the progress and work out solutions to the minor issues that popped up.When there was a problem with the stone for our countertops and we had to scramble to find a replacement. Brandon went above and beyond working with suppliers and the fabricator to find alternatives. As we were out looking for a new slab, we ran into another NDR employee, Destiny, who was out working for another job but immediately offered to help out and let us know if she found anything for us as she was working on her other project.It's that kind of team work that makes North Dallas Renovations a great company to work with. We will definitely go to them first for our next project.

With help of Kyle & his awesome crew, went from super small shower to huge gorgeous shower and master bath transformation.  They also updated our counters, backsplash, flooring in kitchen. Things don't always go smoothly or work on your timeframe, but Kyle cares about your happiness, the quality of work and finished product so he ensures you'll have the best outcome. Love our updates! Already requested estimate on another project. Highly recommend this professional company.Amy in Frisco

Amazing work! Very friendly, professional, and hardworking team. Kyle and his team did a bottom floor/kitchen remodel in Jan 2021, a Jack&Jill bathroom remodel in July 2021, and painted two bedrooms/stained the stairwell in Dec 2021. Plan to use them again next year for a guest bath remodel.  Highly highly recommend!!

This is my second project Kyle and North Dallas Renovations has done for me this year (2018). He and his team recently painted an investment property for me and the work is exemplary. My Realtor was blown away by the job Kyle 's team did. He said, "a Painter can either make you or break you on a house!"...and my project was unbelievably perfect! Kyle is dependable and will offer great suggestions for your consideration. He goes beyond the call of duty to make the experience great...and his painters are awesome too!

Kyle Smith and his team did an excellent job remodeling our upstairs bathroom. They were always on time and professional.  They refinished our bathtub and made it look brand-new. They re-tile the shower and the floor. They installed new fixtures, a new vanity, and a new sink. We are very happy with their work!! We plan to use them again in the future.

All I have to say is that Kyle has the best team I have ever worked with, they care about the quality of work they do. Kyle, did everything he said he would do and more. I would whole heartily recommend North Dallas Renovations. Again, I cannot say enough about his team from Brady the Project Manager to Feliciano the foreman to the rest of the staff. Thank you,

Complete Home Remodel - Very pleasant experience dealing with honest, straightforward, and open communications.  Contractor provided numerous cost-effective and ergonomic suggestions resulting in absolute 1st class quality and appearance throughout.   Friendly crew, always on time, and willing to make any minor change requested.  Regular presence by company owner insured quality and timeliness of finished product.  The onsite supervisor was simply outstanding.

We recently met Kyle & Kim at a business conference for contractors and I was really impressed. They know what it takes to put together a great project, and hearing about the structure and processes they have in place for their business leaves me no doubt that they're the #1 choice!
