Jennifer Homeyer likes to joke that she’s lost count of the number of times her small business should have failed. But here she and her family are, the proud and blessed owners of an ever-evolving flooring and full-service interior renovation company called The Design House. Going on 14 years in business, it’s now a staple of our community — the type of place you’d expect to find in Dallas’ Design District conveniently tucked away on Colorado Blvd., in Denton.
Their customers come from far and wide and range from everyday homeowners who need design ideas to spice up their outdated kitchen, bathroom, or living room to house flippers who rely on the steady hand of a proven general contractor.
“When we bought the business, it was dying,” Jennifer recalled. She and her husband, Ty, bought the formerly-named Carpets Plus in 2008, weeks before the stock market cratered and the nation fell into a recession. It was renamed The Design House in 2018. “It was just me and one employee running it during those first few years. We were unloading all the trucks, measuring…it was just a baton handoff every single day. But there was never a choice for it not to work.”
She added, “We are here because God has given us the opportunity when we should have failed many times.”
The good news is that The Design House isn’t going away anytime soon. Timing is everything when preparing for a home renovation project — whether it’s a small bathroom upgrade or you want to gut everything and start anew. And there is undoubtedly a myriad of questions eager homeowners have about the process, price, and whether or not they can find the right materials. The Design House caters to all of that and more, offering experienced design specialists, products ranging from flooring and cabinets to complete kitchen and bath options, and installation and building services.
We mentioned their longevity and the fact that they are 100% family-owned and operated. They also boast a 10,000 square foot showroom, and they are their own granite and quartz countertop fabricator. Their in-house designers have a wealth of experience, and they corner the market in reliable project managers and licensed plumbers and electricians.
Essentially, they can tackle as little or as much of your project as you need — now and well into the future.
“We have right at 40 employees now, and we even grew by a few during the pandemic,” Jennifer said. “So it’s not just our family that depends on this business; we have many others who depend on us, too. We are extremely proud and humbled to be where we are today.”
