Gorgeous Kitchen & Bath Remodel Makes the Most of Home’s Existing Footprint

Expanding your existing space without adding to your home’s square footage can certainly pose a challenge. From renegotiating a room’s footprint to figuring out flow, there’s a lot to think about when creating a new, functional design within set physical parameters. In this recent remodel, our clients asked us to find a way to expand their kitchen and primary suite, and add a new powder room all within their existing home—a challenge that we were happy to take on.

In looking at options, we determined that the best course was to keep the original kitchen layout in place and then extend the area with additional cabinetry and new spot for the refrigerator into the existing living room, which would be relocated to an adjacent porch. We also opened up the hallway from the dining room to the original living room to give a more spacious feel.

Our clients loved the idea of injecting some color into this new space, so we went with a beautiful deep blueberry color for the lower cabinets. Gleaming quartz countertops, a slightly textured white subway tile backsplash, and stainless-steel appliances and accents balance out the look. Details like natural wood floating shelves, a beverage nook, and space to sit around the extended counter add a coziness to the space without it feeling cramped.

As we renegotiated the layout of the main floor, we were able to tuck a powder room into the original living room’s closet. We made the most out of this tiny nook with an unobtrusive pocket door and a bright white and neutral color palette to reflect the light.

To make the primary bathroom feel larger, we turned the shower stall 90 degrees to make use of the full width of the existing space. With gorgeous gray textured tiles, a built-in shelf and two shower heads, not to mention ample closed storage, this bathroom is now a true oasis.

Our clients absolutely love the way our team was able to transform their existing space into a stunning home that truly fits their needs!

How to Turn Your Bathroom into a Home Spa

Home Remodeling Company in Robbinsville, NJ

Going for a day at the spa in one of the best ways to relax and rejuvenate. However, there are times when going to a spa isn’t possible. Not to mention, those expensive spa treatments can add up, causing stress on your wallet. Remodeling your bathroom into your dream home spa is a great way to relax and feel pampered at home. Read on to see how you can turn your bathroom into a home spa.

Incorporate natural colors and textures

Natural elements like glass, wood, and earth tones are one of the most important part of any spa. Not only do these elements and textures look great, but they also help add an atmosphere of calm and relaxation to your home spa. When renovating your bathroom, you also should consider incorporating soothing colors such as eggshell, pale green, grey, or beige to add even more to the relaxing atmosphere.

Reduce clutter

It is difficult for the mind to relax in a chaotic environment, that’s why keeping your bathroom organized is a great way to evoke a spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom. For your next bathroom remodel, consider installing open shelving on your walls or additional cabinets/drawers to optimize space. Additionally, hanging organizers can be used to organize toiletries and wicker baskets are great for housing a large stack of fluffy towels.

Add the amenities

Your dream home spa isn’t complete without the necessary amenities. Spa-like fixtures are easily the most important thing you should consider when remodeling your bathroom. If you are someone that goes to the spa on a frequent basis, installing spa-like amenities in your bathroom can actually save you money in the long run. When renovating your bathroom, consider luxurious additions such as a rain head shower, a soaking tub, or heated flooring to create an authentic spa experience in your bathroom.
