In designing a set of great house plans your Architect/Designer will design your home theater so that you will get the most out of it. The ideal lighting for an entire family to watch a full-length movie in the evening might be with the recessed lighting turned off and the decorative lighting at the ceiling and the wall sconces dimmed to a low level. On the other hand if your children are watching cartoons or playing video games you may want to turn on the recessed lighting to the maximum output, and turn off the decorative lighting. As your Architect/Designer knows, without the right lighting you will not get the most out of your investment in you great house plans. On weekends when your home theater is the focal point to watch sports , the recessed lighting should be turned down 50% while your sconces and ceiling fixture could be turned off or dimmed to a low level. Having an integrated dimming system is key. This type of system in great house plans can control all of the lights from one location, and the layers can be pre-set to designated 'scenes.' All of the lighting settings for various activities can be programmed into the memory of the system and the manufacturer can customize the label for each setting with titles. The beauty of these integrated systems in great house plans is that the 'scenes' can be controlled with a remote so that the lighting can be adjusted with the same ease as the control of our cable and entertainment systems. A lighting control system allows people to dim the lighting in order to create a genuine movie theater experience.

Home plans and more since 1972!
Working at home has become a natural extension of home life. Even though at one time taking work home was seen as unnecessary , in the modern world when your Mediterranean home plans are created by your Architect/Designer, you need to consider a functional space for your home office. For individuals working off-site as contractors and established entrepreneurs, creating a workspace that acknowledges their home life, available area, and personal needs may be more important than decorating any room. The first step is to figure out everything you want to go into your office space. Layout, privacy, organization and an effective use of space are very important considerations and each should be discussed with your Architect/Designer who will then interpret your ideas and design your Mediterranean home plans. It is vital to know if you will have clients visiting so that your office space will be designed to have a door you can close to help create a healthy life-work balance. Should you choose a more family-friendly environment, work spaces can be designed to be communal and centrally located to serve everyone in your family. Two features home-office designers of Mediterranean home plans are considering vital to a productive work space are lighting and an ergonomic chair. Recommended are an indirect, adjustable light source and the use of energy-efficient bulbs in a balanced color range. Task lighting, ambient lighting, sconces and bouncing lighting off the ceiling are viable solutions. Since there is often a lag time between new office devices, it can be a challenge to find a solution that not only works for the time being, but can accommodate future technical needs.

Creating your own chef's paradise in an existing home may require the an office visit with an Architect/Designer to create your new kitchen plans for your house plan modifications. Design harmony is important. Perhaps you already have a sink or a faucet in mind and can use either piece as a starting point. Identify what it is that you really like that particular sink or faucet and it will become clearer the direction of your redesign will go. For instance, when you begin your house plan modifications, do your preferences run toward sleek, modern lines, then you will probably want a contemporary design. If you love the farm house look, maybe you will choose a wall mount faucet. Remember that color and finish are also key considerations as well as functionality. Design harmony is also important in your house plan modifications when you are matching countertops and your cabinets. You may have always loved the look of stainless steel, but if the cabinets you choose are clearly country, the warm colors and solid looks of a cast-iron sink may be a better fit. If you have the luxury of choosing both new cabinets and new countertops your design job will be easier. But if you are committed to using the cabinets you already have in your home, consider countertop materials that are timeless and universal, like granite or marble. Even if the design of your cabinets ties you into a specific material, remember you'll have plenty of color options available. Once your house plan modifications and design pairings are complete, you can turn your focus to creating enjoyable gourmet meals perfectly paired with the right beverages. Fortunately you'll find no shortage of inspiration.

Dallas Design Group's home plans contain fabulous spaces, elegant bathrooms, dramatic bedrooms - homes that are both warm and beautiful.

Dallas Design Group Architects are established icons not only around the Dallas-Ft. Worth architectural arena but throughout the country from California to Florida.
Their plans have a knack for "curb appeal," and beautiful architectural detail. When you see their work, you know it is a "Dallas Design Group design."
When you see a DDG floor plan, it not only flows very comfortably, but all the rooms have a comfortable feel as well. From the master bedroom down even to the closets - the entire plan works well. From a 1,800 sq. ft. home plan to a 20,000 sq. ft plan, all the rooms are laid out and sized for that specific design style.
Their plans reflect this special knack, a special flair - a unique one of a kind , "Dallas Design Group Design."
- David L. Roffino-Roffino Construction, Dallas Texas
As a new home-builder and developer entering a very competitive real estate market, we had to find unique architecture to distinguish ourselves from all the other home-builders out there. Dallas Design Group has exceeded our expectations, and gave us that edge and niche market that we were looking for. Over the past 10 years, I have personally witnessed the "wow effect" that their designs have on people. I can testify that I, personally, have seen families drive by homes that Dallas Design Group had designed for us, with cameras in hand, seeking to capture the powerful emotional rush elicited by their designs. Additionally, I’ve had competitors walk the homes DDG has designed for us, with the hopes of walking away with cutting edge concepts, or simply seeing what all the neighbors are talking about.
Aside from the design and curb appeal that these wonderful designs obviously possess, there is the DDG technical design process. Every DDG plan that I have used over the past 10 years has operated completely smoothly during the construction process, and every project design translated exactly from the blueprints to the actual construction in the field. Due to DDG’s unique ability to grasp what the customer envisions, a lot of the potential kinks are worked out during the design phase in which they produce incredible plans. DDG also takes the time to educate the client about the structural, architectural and budgetary principles and their bearing on the feasibility of particular project goals. With such careful attention to detail as well as to customer awareness, DDG virtually eliminates all mistakes and hazards during the construction process.
In closing, Dallas Design Group is our exclusive architectural design firm for all of the custom homes we construct throughout Texas, Arkansas, and California, and we are honored to be a client. It is our sincere belief that the abilities of DDG will succeed in meeting and exceeding of all their clients' needs and expectations.

I first met Dallas Design Group in 1990 and worked with them in rebuilding an office space that I would be occupying. They have excellent analytical skills, and helped by offering suggestions regarding conservation of space and efficient office design for a growing pediatric practice.
Over the years I have had the pleasure of going into several homes that were designed by Dallas Design Group. They were both high end as well as average homes and were designed with the owner's needs in mind. Each home immediately makes the owner very pleased to have had Dallas Design Group as the designer.
I have also been in several high-end physician's offices designed by Dallas Design Group -which are truly beautiful. No one could begin to challenge the skill, the design, the beauty, the efficiency and flow exhibited in a Dallas Design Group design.
- Dr. Laura Stiles
I was privileged to work with Dallas Design Group in the architectural design of 10 speculative homes and over 40 build-to-suit residences. I always knew that once my prospects met with DDG, viewed a rendering of the front elevation and a one-eighth-inch floor plan, this would become a home I would soon begin building.
Time after time I would hear client comments like "they listened carefully to our wish list and incorporated everything in the plan that we requested." This firm's ability to work with people and put their ideas on paper is absolutely amazing. My clients would immediately realize they were working with true professional's that really cared about what was important to them.
Many of the homes they designed for me were on "garden," "patio," or "zero lot line" home sites. DDG would always incorporate features in these plans that they used in their larger estate homes. These design elements included long vistas upon entering the home, dramatic ceiling treatments like barrel and groin vaults, and breathtaking views to the outside area.
Anyone considering designing a new home or buying a pre-designed home plan should consider Dallas Design Group and their outstanding architectural design concepts and superb detail.
