Home Remodeling in Chevy Chase MD
Chevy Chase, Maryland was originally designed as a small village, a cluster of gracious traditional style homes on large lots sited along leafy streets just over the DC boundary and connected to downtown by a trolley line.
Over generations, Chevy Chase developed into a handful of related of townships (including Somerset and Friendship Heights) that now feature an enormous variety of architectural design styles from turn of the century traditional to post WWII brick cottages to mid-century ranchers to glassy contemporaries. The multi-generational architectural styles of Chevy Chase require a high degree of expertise and versatility from any home remodeling company that would be doing business there.
In addition, The Town of Chevy Chase has implemented strict rules about rainwater management and limitations on lot coverage. So before starting a home remodeling project, you’ll want to be sure to meet with a company that specializes in home renovation, knows the local regulations, and has a deep knowledge of architectural styles.
Our renovation architects and interior designers are well versed in the quirks of older architectural styles as well as the complexities of contemporary architecture. They understand what makes a space feel right. They can quickly identify limitations, create a detailed plan for your home remodeling project, then lead you to the fulfillment of a shared vision of what your old house could be.
Whether your project involves kitchen remodeling, bathroom renovation, or an expansive new home addition and interior reconfiguration, a well planned renovation can give your tired old house a new start while preserving all that is good about the original home.
The driving force behind nearly every home remodeling project we do in the Chevy Chase is the desire for a remodeled kitchen. Kitchen design techniques and kitchen product lines change so much each year that, if your kitchen is fifteen years old or more, kitchen remodeling will be well worth the investment.
You will have the best experience if you hire a remodeling company like ours that employs kitchen designers and renovation architects, specialists who understand all the ins and outs of kitchen remodeling, obsess over every detail--and show you all of your options to achieve the kitchen of your dreams. A successful kitchen remodeling project depends on their design expertise and knowledge of the renovation process.
Our kitchen designers start by evaluating the condition of existing walls, subfloor, plumbing and electrical system--then making recommendations to ensure your investment is built on a solid foundation while eliminating the possibility of costly construction surprises. They’ll finalize the floor plan for your new kitchen, then guide you through the process of selecting cabinetry, appliances, countertops, flooring, lighting design–and all the little details that will take your inspiration from random thoughts, to thoughtful design, to glorious completion.
Compared to other rooms in the house, bathrooms tend to be small. But remodeling a bathroom is no small project. Even a simple hall bath remodel requires a lot of decisions. And because space is limited, it is critical that your bathroom design be precise down to the inch to ensure you maximize the utility of the entire space.
Working with one of our staff bath designers makes the decision process go smoothly for you and ensures that the bath products and finishes you choose will hold up over time and contribute to a harmonious visual design. Our bath designers also keep an eye on the construction process. This is important because, with any bathroom renovation project, there are details that must be worked out “on the fly”. Since our designers and craftsmen are used to working together, it’s easy for them make those small but important adjustments that always come up during the construction phase.
Even though many of the traditional homes of Chevy Chase are fairly spacious, homeowners still want more space--or they want better designed space. Or, and this is quite common, they want to correct errors made by a previous owner’s attempt at home remodeling.
Sometimes the solution to a poorly conceived home addition is to tear it down and start over with an entirely new home addition. With homes that already have generous interior space, we may forgo the addition and reconfigure existing interiors to improve room to room flow and modernize the floor plan. Either way, a well designed home remodeling plan gives us the opportunity to re-invent these older homes and, in the process, upgrade them to meet the comfort, aesthetic and functional standards our clients expect.
