Let’s face it, the thought of remodeling any area of your home can feel overwhelming. From the mess to coordinating contractors to picking out details, thinking about planning a remodel can exhaust you before you even start!

At BDS, we actively take steps to prevent spreading dust throughout your whole home - and here are our top strategies for limiting dust.

Last month, we featured a welcoming and peaceful family room that BDS converted from an outdated, indoor pool room that was turning into a safety hazard for a family with young kids. This month, our project highlights are three recent Chicago area home remodels all completed in a transitional style.
Meet Bryan, the owner of BDS Design Build Remodel. Bryan started BDS in 2003, but his experience in the industry began long before.

To receive one Chrysalis Award is quite an honor, but to snap up two of them is what BDS Design Build Remodel just did. We made a commitment to excellence when we first founded BDS Design Build Remodel in 2003. That commitment is reflected in every home project we take on, whether large or small, and it is a commitment that just earned us nation-wide public recognition.
