A home in Bethesda, Md. gets a top-to-bottom makeover and a second floor addition. See the transformation.
Before an extensive remodel by Glickman Design Group, this 1940s brick home in Bethesda, Md. was a single story structure that no longer functioned for the growing family who lived inside.
Outside, a new front entry porch, detached garage with a storage shed and a concrete driveway welcome guests to the revamped property. The team also gave the home’s exterior a fresh new look by repainting the original brick on the first floor and using durable, low-maintenance materials on the new spaces: the second story’s siding and trim is fiber cement, the front porch is constructed of PVC and vinyl materials, and the back deck uses composite boards and PVC railing.
The family now has a backyard complete with a deck made of composite boards and PVC railing.
A light, clean and simple color palette sets the tone for the new kitchen that features plentiful cabinetry and counter space, as well as a walk-in pantry and a breakfast area.
The redone first floor of the home now has an open floor plan that allows for a more functional space in the kitchen to accommodate eating and gathering as a family.
The staircase posed a speed bump for Justin Wigfield and the Glickman Design Build team when the clients changed their minds about a bathroom on the first floor of the home. Luckily they were able to accommodate the request and successfully join the two floors without major complications.
The neutral colors found in the kitchen are reflected again in the master bathroom, where his and her sinks and ample cabinet space create a comfortable retreat.
The two sisters who live in the Bethesda, Md., home have their own Jack and Jill bathroom to share. Situated between the two bedrooms of the second floor addition, the bathroom echoes the hues and materials found in the master bath, including ceramic tile and Caesarstone.
