Project Spotlight: All New Kitchen and Baths, Weymouth

This Weymouth homeowner came to us after living for many years in her house.   The kids had moved out and it was time to get the kitchen and bathrooms she always wanted.  Almar helped guide her through the design, selections, and remodeling of 2 full bathrooms and a kitchen. 

We started with the bathroom remodels.  Since we were remodeling both bathrooms in the house, we decided with the homeowner to remodeled the 1st floor bathroom first and then do the 2nd floor bathroom, so they always had an operational bath in the house while we were working.  

The goal was for the 1st floor bathroom to be remodeled in a manner that it would allow for the homeowner to have one floor living in the home if desired.   We removed the old tub and tile walls and installed a new walk-in tiled shower.  One of the challenges for this bath was the window in the shower.   Prior to working on the house, the old window was damaged from all the years in the bathroom and had clear glass, so the homeowner had to hang a shower curtain in front of the window.   Almar used a Rite-Window (to match the other units in the house) vinyl window with opaque glass so give privacy but allow for light to come into the room.  That window along with Azek PVC trim on the inside of window installation helped keep the window from leaking or having any issues with water exposure in the shower.

The next bathroom we remodeled was the 2nd floor main bathroom.   With this bathroom we decided to put in a new tub unit with tiled walls.  Many real estate agents will recommend when remodeling a house to make sure that you retain at least one tub in a bathroom to help keep the value of the house to younger couples that may have children.

 Finally, after remodeling both bathroom in their home, Almar, along with Homescapes by Cape Cod Lumber worked together to design a new layout for the kitchen cabinets.  Utilizing the same space that was already there and leaving the fixtures in the same locations we were able to create a new layout for the kitchen area.  By adding a peninsula with seating and a microwave drawer, it allowed for almost double the amount of counter space the kitchen had previously.   Selecting Schrock line of cabinets gave the homeowner the freedom to add features like pullouts.   With a new Silestone countertop (In Ocean Jasper Color) and a custom tiled backsplash, the new white cabinets really brightened up the kitchen and made the existing space feel larger.

By working with a kitchen designer, we were able to utilize the existing space and double the amount of usable kitchen area, allowing this homeowner to enjoy her existing home for many years to come even as their lifestyle changes.
