Mercer Island Home Remodel Brings Our Clients Vision to Life

By Mandy | Apr 8, 2019 | Comments Off on Mercer Island Home Remodel Brings Our Clients Vision to Life

J & M Remodel worked with our clients’ Seattle-based architectural firm Atelier Drome to bring our clients’ vision for their Mercer Island home to life. The large, mid-century home, built in 1957, was a former investment property that had not been updated since then, and needed a great deal of work. J & M Remodel met with the architects and clients to fine tune the design and budget for a several months before settling on the final design implementation.

The home’s original compartmentalized layout was typical of 1950s-era construction. J & M Remodel assigned Matt Gallwey as project manager for this extensive home remodel. Matt and his team began by opening the home’s layout. In fact, the J & M Remodel team almost gutted the three-thousand square foot home. Extensive work on the exterior began as well. All the home’s mechanical systems were updated or replaced, including installation of a Ductless Mini Split system throughout.

A few design elements that were updated include painting the paneling on the ceiling of the great room and adding a beam with conduit to accommodate a large fan and can lighting.

The remodeled kitchen is aesthetically clean, with minimalistic finishes, after existing walls were removed to incorporate the entire living area into one great room.

The new master suite layout includes a large closet, and the en suite bath features a walk-in shower and a separate water closet.

Reconfiguring the basement of the home created a more open flow and includes an interior area for a quaint in-home office.

Along with remodeling the kitchen, three bathrooms, and reconfiguring the basement, the J & M Remodel team updated the interior of the home, including new flooring, paint, and millwork throughout. The J & M Remodel team replaced all interior doors, stairs, and banisters as well.

The extensive exterior work on the home includes new siding and paint, new windows, new roof and gutters, concrete work, and a new garage and front doors.

This mid-century home was completely transformed into a beautiful, functional home for our clients. The customizations and value-add that resulted from this complete home remodel confirms that our clients’ decision to renovate the home was the best choice to fit their lifestyle.

Kitchen Remodel in West Seattle’s Belvidere Neighborhood

Kitchen Remodel Projects in Seattle WA by J and M Remodel-2

J & M Remodel recently completed a kitchen renovation in the Belvidere neighborhood of West Seattle. Our customer decided that it was time to update the kitchen into a beautiful place their family would enjoy spending time in, complimented by a stunning Puget Sound view from the kitchen window.

The footprint of the kitchen remained the same. Justin suggested that J & M Remodel could extend the peninsula that separated the kitchen work area and the kitchen table. The extended peninsula provides additional cabinetry and counterspace. We also installed a dry bar using custom cabinetry that matches those J & M Remodel installed in the kitchen that ties the whole room together.

As you view the photos of the kitchen remodel project, you’ll take note of the soft gray custom cabinets with brass hardware that are a key feature of the project. The cabinets are top quality, and include built-in organizers, a wine cabinet, and a glass display cabinet in the dry bar area. The under cabinet lighting that J & M Remodel installed beautifully illuminates the white quartz countertop. The use of white subway tiles throughout the entire kitchen tastefully blends with the striking light fixtures and hardware. Power outlets were installed vertically to flow with the tile layout.

The large dark gray floor tiles, with contrasting white grout, flow seamlessly into the adjacent hall which features another brass accented light fixture. The new kitchen appliances include matching wine and beverage refrigeration.

The completed kitchen remodel project is both functional and classically stylish, resulting in a cohesive update that will stand the test of time (and trends) that our delighted clients will enjoy for years to come.

Newcastle Master Bathroom with Carrera Tile - 1

This project is a showcase of design, project management, and workmanship brought together by J & M Remodel to meet the client’s goals and schedule, despite problems with the availability of the materials for the project. This Newcastle master bathroom incorporates materials and features that are both top of the line and state of the art, including

  • Schluter Ditra-Heat floor warming system
  • Wedi Shower system
  • Carrera Tile
  • Free standing soaking tub with wand
  • Frameless glass shower surround
  • Sconce Lighting
  • Bullnose tile window encasement
  • Flush inset medicine cabinet
  • Kohler showroom design

Our client described their experience with the J & M Remodel team in their review on the reviews page of our site thusly:

“We redid our master bathroom – tore it down to the studs, knocked down a wall, full tile, glass shower – the works.

Top three things we looked for in a contractor (1) finish on time, (2) communicate regularly and (3) be neat. Having done home renovations (while living in the house) before, these were must haves. J&M nailed all three. They finished their work a week early. They explained the plan for the week at the start of the week and communicated next week’s plan at the end of every week. Finally, they cleaned up after themselves every day.

The only challenge we had was our fault. We used a designer and acquired the materials through their suppliers. We ended up short on tile and had to reorder which took a week. J&M just worked around it. Our major issue was a miscommunication between me and my wife which lead to the counter tops coming in a week late. Totally our issue, no issue with J&M. This leads me to the pointer. If you haven’t ordered your materials yet, and J&M can get what you want, order through them and they will sync timeline.

Overall, very happy with J & M. We have already slotted our next project with them in December. And will be using them for a kitchen update sometime next year.”

Maple Valley Bathroom Remodel

A complete bathroom remodel was required for our customer’s home, which was originally built in the 1980s. The primary users of the bathroom are children, so the bathroom design and features were chosen with their needs in mind.

A Bathroom Remodel That Combines Timeless Style with Practical Functionality

The J & M Remodel team replaced the fiberglass-surround bathtub with a curbless, glass-enclosed, walk in shower. The updated shower walls feature a crisp, clean matte white subway tile. The J & M Remodel team replaced the shower floor with a pebble shower pan. Other changes include the installation of two shower heads—one fixed, one on a shower hose—and insetting a natural stone niche into the shower wall. These updates transformed the dated bathtub/shower combination into a modern, spa-like environment.

Wedi Shower System

The J & M Remodel team installed the Wedi Shower System underneath the new shower tile. Wedi Systems are known for their waterproof performance as well as for durability and longevity. The J & M Remodel team are certified to install the Wedi Shower System. J & M Remodel team members completed extensive training by Wedi Systems recently. As a result, any Wedi Shower System that the J & M Remodel team installs is warranted by Wedi for an extended 15 to 20-year period.

Bathroom Flooring and Vanity

The dated vinyl bathroom flooring was replaced with large tiles that are set on point. The new tiles were chosen to blend well with the pebble shower pan.

The dual sink vanity has lots of storage to keep items off the quartz countertop. The J & M Remodel team inset a niche into the bathroom wall with power so that small electric items can be tucked away yet remain readily accessible. Lighter paint, brighter lighting, and dual mirrors over each sink complete the bathroom remodel project.

The resulting bathroom represents a dramatic transformation that the children will enjoy for many years to come.

Designer Touches Highlight Ballard Bathroom Remodel Project

Bathroom Remodel Projects in Seattle WA by J and M Remodel-NWBlueRidgeDrive,Seattle-0

Our client contacted J & M Remodel to update both bathrooms in their Ballard home along with other projects including flooring and a minor kitchen update. Once we established a plan for the layout and functionality of the bathrooms, our client brought in a professional design firm, Heidi Callier of heidicaillierdesign.com to assist with the aesthetics of the project.

The upstairs bathroom had water damage, so a full tear down and rot repair was necessary. While the extensive demolition due to the water damage was unfortunate, the J & M Remodel team was able to start the project with a clean slate. The double vanity in the upstairs bathroom was custom made with large pull out drawers that wrap around the sink to maximize the available storage. All the fixtures that the client selected were high-end and will remain beautiful and functional over time. The design of the walk-in shower in the upstairs bathroom makes use of the available space and includes recessed niches for storage. The use of the natural marble throughout the upstairs bathroom along with designer finishes makes this space a real showstopper.

From a Small Space to a Dream Master Bathroom

The downstairs bathroom started as a small powder room. The J & M Remodel team expanded the downstairs bathroom by making use of a large adjacent closet. This increased the downstairs bathroom square footage substantially, which provided space for both a soaking tub as well as a walk-in shower. Extensive tile work went into the downstairs bathroom including a custom border around the tub and toilet area, and a large custom shower bench. The downstairs bathroom features handcrafted corbels above the tub, and the shower includes a linear drain and a large recessed niche.
