First Floor Remodel with Kitchen and Master Bath by Michael A. Rogers Building & Home Improvement

With the help of designer Mary Mortensen and Bob Miller at Builder’s Carpet Outlet, the majority of the first floor of this mid-century Cape Cod home was remodeled with an eye to staying true to the homeowners’ eclectic taste.
In both the front room and new kitchen, antique beveled-glass French doors open to the conservatory. New red oak flooring, matching the original, was installed in the remodeled kitchen where you’ll find new appliances and upscale plumbing fixtures. The Starmark chocolate-glazed Farmington quartersawn oak cabinets in both kitchen and master bath coordinate well with the Cambria Nottingham countertops.
The master bath space was created from a former bedroom. The carefully selected tile and impressive neo-angle shower enclosure make this bath a must-see. This remodel demonstrates how redesigning existing spaces can make a huge difference in a home’s functionality.

This colonial style home is alive now and a welcome refuge! The master bedroom became a master bedroom suite with a large walk-in organized closet and a larger-than-before bath. Painted European wallpaper and bamboo flooring are some of the unique finishes.
The renovated kitchen includes granite counters, Hickory cabinets, wood flooring. This is a must-see to learn how we gained work space and storage without enlarging the home.
