Types of Residential Remodeling Projects in Maryland and Washington, DC
Winthorpe Design & Build specializes in residential remodeling in the Maryland and DC region. We work closely with you to deliver on your dreams. Whether it’s an upgrade to your kitchen, finishing your basement, or renovating your home to accommodate those inevitable changes in life, a remodel can improve your quality of life and raise the value of your home.
Though many remodeling projects share the same challenges, each one is different in its own way. We always take into account your wish list, your budget, and your timelines to ensure we deliver a result that you’re going to love.
Here are some examples of remodeling projects we have done:
Expanding the Master Suite and Master Bath
Once the kids are out of the house, and you have the space all to yourself, it’s natural to start thinking about making upgrades that are strictly for your own comfort. The money you save from your kids being on their own and independent can come in handy for things like upgrading your master bathroom. For many of our clients, this is an opportunity to get a little luxury.
New bathroom cabinets, a new vanity, double sinks, and smart mirrors are all great ideas. Or how about installing a spa shower with rain showerheads, or a steam shower?
Remodeling to Accommodate a Growing family
On the opposite end of the scale, if your family is growing, you might be thinking about ways you can remodel that will make your life a little easier. For example, turning your main floor into an open-concept space will allow you to keep an eye on what the kids are up to while you cook dinner.
If your kids are getting older, it might be practical to give them their own space. Finishing out your basement is a great way to accommodate their changing needs and keep them out of the main traffic areas. It can also expand your available space for entertaining, with a wet bar, a media room, or a home theater.
For those of you with aging parents, an in-law suite is a perfect solution. It will allow you to keep your loved ones close by while they still maintain their independence. You may already have an area of your home that is suitable for this type of use, or you might think about building an addition to accommodate the new apartment.
For aging-in-place, or to accommodate family members who have mobility issues, we can make changes to your home to make it more accessible. Installing ramps on the exterior, elevators or stair-lifts on the inside, and retrofitting bathrooms with wider doorways and universal features will make daily living easier to manage. Lower countertops can be installed in the kitchen, and new appliances and fixtures are available that are either connected or respond to touch for ease of use.
Sunrooms and decks are a great way to get the most out of the summer months. We have designed many homes to maximize the enjoyment and beauty of outdoor spaces. Spring and summer afternoons and evenings spent outside are nothing short of blissful. Having a screened-in sunroom means being able to enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors at any time of year.
Expanding and Updating the Kitchen
Many of our remodeling work focuses on the kitchen, either to make it more functional or to update it to modern standards. A kitchen remodel can be a major undertaking. Generally, it encompasses new cabinets, countertops, backsplash, hood fans, a kitchen island (or two), and perhaps new flooring and appliances.
There are so many new and updated options to consider in kitchen design today. It’s really easy to go all out, but getting a brand-new look and feel doesn’t have to be a major job. Sometimes, a few small changes can make all the difference. For example, switching out the fixtures is quite simple and can put a whole new spin on things. Or, you might decide that’s it’s time to open up the wall between the kitchen and living areas or rearrange the layout completely to improve the workspace and facilitate traffic flow.
