Owner Israel Monroy operates Modern Design & Remodeling, which opened in January 2020.
MAKING BETTER MAKEOVERS Renovating a home can seem like an intimidating process for customers, but the Modern Design & Remodeling team aims to make the process stress- free, owner Israel Monroy said. Set up a consultation: Modern Design & Remodeling oers free estimates for customers before they commit to a project. Bring photos for inspiration: Finding inspiration online can give designers a better idea of what the customer is looking for. Ask questions: Project managers are available to customers throughout the entire renovation process so nothing is a surprise for the homeowner. Have patience: Television show remodels happen in the span of 30 minutes, but real-life renovations can take weeks or even months, depending on the project.

Modern Design & Remodeling Spring business simplies home transformation process for customers W hen Modern Design & Remodeling owner Israel Monroy was 18 years old, he accepted a summer job at a ooring Monroy said he ensures customers can communi- cate with his team throughout the entire process. “Every project has a project manager. … [That] is there every step of the way,” Monroy said. “So cus- tomers aren’t wondering, … ‘OK, well, who’s coming
store. He said he had no idea, however, that it would be the beginning of a lifelong career in the industry. “I started as a loader,” Monroy said. “And then I became a forklift operator and slowly got into sales. … And then from there, it was just like, ‘One day, I’m gonna open my own [business].’” After more than a decade in the industry, Monroy opened Modern Design & Remodeling in January 2020. Located on FM 2920 in Spring, the store sells remodeling materials such as tile, ooring, counter- tops, cabinets and carpet. Monroy—along with his team of designers, proj- ect managers, contractors and an architect—also oers consultations, installation and full remodel services. The most common projects Monroy said his business undertakes are kitchen and master bathroom remodels. “The kitchen and master bath adds tremendous value to the resale of the home,” he said. While renovating a home can sound daunting,
tomorrow?’ Or, ‘What’s going on tomorrow?’” Modern Design & Remodeling also oers 3D renderings of the design so customers can more easily visualize the nal result, he said. Like many businesses, Monroy said the main challenge Modern Design & Remodeling is facing is supply shortages. “I won’t start a project unless I know all the appliances [are here] because I don’t want to tear out someone’s kitchen, and then … the refrigerator is not coming in for another six weeks,” he said. Since opening, Monroy said his business has completed several projects for people his initial customers know. Monroy noted he is most proud of these word-of-mouth referrals. “We’re passionate about it,” Monroy said. “We pride ourselves in taking the weight o the cus- tomer and kind of making it stress-free for them.”
