  • Riverfront Retreat

    Our clients have a lovely home on the Mississippi River in Newport.  Their wish was to increase the size of the master bedroom, create a large walk in closet, and improve the ventilation and lighting in these spaces.  Maximizing the view and breezes from the river was of utmost importance.  In addition, the bathroom was in dire need of a renovation.  The project involved taking 3 upstairs bedrooms and converting them into a large master suite.

    DESIGN AND PLANNING PROCESS

    During our initial meetings with the clients, we discussed their needs and lifestyle in more detail.  Discussions were had regarding number of bedrooms and resale value, as well as any potential for future family expansion or children.  Some general ideas were sketched out for the bedroom areas and bathroom.  These sketches were turned over to our design team, who drew some computerized ideas and plans.  5 initial floor plans were presented.  After reviewing these with the client, a hybrid idea was developed, which our architect ran with and drew up.  A structural engineer was brought in to verify that the walls we wished to remove were not load bearing.  Our cabinet designer drew up some great ideas for the bathroom.  Once the plans were approved by the client, our design team worked with the clients to pick out the cabinets, tile, fixtures, etc. that would go into the space.  Finally, our trade partners were brought in to walk through the project and alleviate any construction concerns or plan tweaks that may have been needed.

    BEDROOM & CLOSET HIGHLIGHTS

    3 bedrooms and 2 small closets were converted into a large master suite with huge walk-in closet.  Additional walls were framed to create new separations between the hallway and this new space.  The existing plaster was carefully blended with new drywall to ensure that the spaces looked like they had always been this way.  Special high-build ceiling paint was used to ensure an even finish in this brightly lit space.   Our trim carpenters installed new pocket doors and trim.  The painters did a beautiful job with the rich color palette.  In these areas, the hardwood floors were patched and the entire area refinished.  Our electricians installed new lighting, ceiling fans, and additional outlets for our clients convenience.

    BATHROOM HIGHLIGHTS

    Our clients had a strong wish for a black and white space.  These can be some of the most difficult finishes to work with, as every imperfection sticks out like a sore thumb.  The tub was removed to create a large walk-in shower and linen closet.  The porcelain tile floor sits on top of an in-floor heat system.  A combination of fixtures from different brands were used in order to provide the custom look that our clients were seeking.  A custom clear glass door and panel allows light to pass into the shower area and combines with a huge mirror to make the room feel larger.  Black cabinets were designed to maximize storage, and the Cambria quartz countertop looks amazing and will be a breeze to keep clean.

    FINISHING TOUCHES

    An upgraded electrical panel will provide plenty of power to the home, and some dated plumbing piping was replaces.  A sliding rustic alder barn door separates the hallway from the master suite.  A new craftsman-style fiberglass front door puts the exclamation point on this beautiful project.

    TIMELINE

    This project took about 3 months to design and plan.  Construction was completed in about 3-1/2 months.

    Townhome Updates

    This single level townhome received some cosmetic updates.

    KITCHEN

    The existing cabinets remained in place.  New Cambria quartz countertops were installed, along with a gorgeous tile backsplash.  New vinyl plank flooring and paint look great.  Fresh paint and lighting completes the look.  Rollout trays were added to the existing lower cabinets.  This looks like a brand new kitchen, even though the cabinets and appliances didn’t change!

    MASTER BATH/CLOSET

    This floor plan includes a small walk-in-closet inside of the bathroom.  The old wire shelving was ditched and a new custom closet system was installed to maximize every inch of this small space.  In addition, a new custom oak vanity was built to give our client a few drawers which she didn’t have previously.  A coat of paint, new countertop and faucet, and mirror finishes off the room.

    GUEST BATH

    A simple update was done in the guest bath.  A new custom oak vanity was built in our shop, and installed along with a new countertop and faucet.  Fresh paint, mirror, and accessories finish it off.

    Townhome Remodel

    This townhome was built in 1986 and still had most of it’s original parts.  Our clients wishes were pretty straightforward:  Bring the home into this timeframe, and improve the look and function of the spaces.  He wished for a clean simple look that would require minimal maintenance.

    KITCHEN

    The galley kitchen was surrounded by load-bearing and exterior walls.  Our client actually enjoyed the layout of the existing kitchen, so we kept the layout similar.  The upper cabinets go full height to the ceiling, eliminating the dust collection space that was above the original cabinets.  The white cabinets are a shaker style to keep the look simple.  Quartz countertops will be easy to maintain and add a little sparkle.  The floor looks like carrera marble but is actually a luxury vinyl tile.  Black stainless appliances really pop against the lighter finishes.  A counter-depth fridge was specified so as not to intrude on the rest of the room.  The backsplash is subtle and pulls a touch of the veining color out of the floor.

    BATHROOM

    This bathroom is tiny and cramped.  We briefly considered expanding into other spaces, but our clients budget and desire to maintain the adjacent walk in closet and kids bathroom meant that we needed to get creative within the existing space.  In place of a tub, a large shower was created.  The shower walls are Corian solid surface panels, with a stripe of black accent tile.  The new toilet has a small footprint.  The new vanity cabinets are slightly shallower than normal to add a little more space.  Finally, the door was replaced and hung to swing into the adjacent bedroom instead of into the bathroom, further adding some precious space.

    OTHER TOUCHES

    The luxury vinyl tile floor was carried through the entry and hallway areas of the home, which helped tie these spaces to the kitchen and make things easier for our clients during wet weather.  Light fixtures were replaced throughout the home.  The laundry washer and dryer were replaced with commercial grade appliances.

    TESTIMONIAL

    I am very happy with my kitchen and bathroom remodels. Allrounder met me at four different businesses to help me select new lighting fixtures, appliances, plumbing fixtures, and flooring. Allrounder took care of hiring the subcontractors, which made the remodeling process so much easier. The quality of the work completed was excellent. I’m already planning on hiring Allrounder in a few years to finish my basement.

    St. Paul White & Gray Bath

    This project was an example of the trouble that many of our clients in St Paul have:  Updating and modernizing while staying true to the character of the home.  Our team worked closely with the clients to strike a great balance of modern yet thoughtful to the history of the space.  Modern touches included updated fixtures and sleek gray tile in the tub surround.  These balanced nicely with the built-in medicine cabinet and existing mouldings, which were carefully restored and painted.

    Modern Gray Bathroom

    Our client had 2 criteria when designing her bathroom:  It needed to include plenty of storage, and she wanted to minimize the use of the color white.  Fully custom vanity and wall cabinets provided the storage she desired.  We even built custom rollout trays around the plumbing pipes in the vanity cabinet to make use of every possible inch of space.  A large, deep soaker tub provides a place for our client to relax at the end of a hard day.  The modern gray and black color scheme fits our clients personality, and the Cambria countertop gave her the “space” look that she was going for.

    Lower Level Bath

    Our clients lower level bath had been installed by a previous owner of the home, who clearly did not know what he was doing or pull any permits.  Our team had to remedy numerous code violations and try to cram a lovely new bathroom within a space that should be larger than it is, without room to expand.  The plumbing and electrical were completely redone and inspected by the city prior to the finish materials being installed.

    The primary user of this bathroom is our clients elderly mother, so we made sure to incorporate some features to make things safe for her.  The shower features a ceramic tile surround.  Luxury vinyl floor is easy to clean and resists slipping.  Custom alder cabinets look sharp and provide plenty of storage.  Plenty of lighting were added, in addition to an exhaust fan and heat supply.

    Purple Bathroom

    A water leak caused some damage to her bathroom, so our client decided to take the opportunity to do some elective remodeling while repairing the damage.  Our client wished for a beautiful modern space, but with one condition:  Her purple paint color had to remain.  Our design team did an amazing job of finding beautiful custom finishes that work perfectly with the purple color.

    The old plastic shower was removed and replaced with beautiful tile.  A custom vanity provides plenty of storage with a “furniture” style that our client really craved.  Luxury vinyl flooring looks great and will be easy to keep clean.  The cabinets and lighting were designed around a giant mirror that our client found and fell in love with.

    Eagan Bathroom Update

    Our clients wishes were fairly simple:  Bring this outdated bathroom into modern times, without the expense of a full gut-and-remodel project.  Our solutions included keeping the layout the same to avoid costly plumbing relocations.  In addition, our designers were able to find a granite remnant that looked great and was less expensive than a new piece of quartz.  A simple tub with porcelain tile surround looks great and functions well.  Custom cabinets were needed due to some unique sizes at play.  Luxury vinyl sheet flooring looks great and will be easy to maintain.

    TESTIMONIAL

    Allrounder Remodeling Inc. completed reconstruction of one of our bathrooms in 2019. The process from start to finish was incredibly satisfying. Eric listened to our hopes and ideas and included great detail in the contract bid. He worked to stay in our budget while delivering high quality work and materials. We especially appreciated the great communication including a specific timeline so we knew exactly what to expect. We also appreciated the follow up meeting once the project was done. We continue to love our new bathroom one year later and are so glad we used Allrounder Remodeling. We sincerely recommend them and hope to have them back for other projects!
