This remodeled home in the Cooper Young area in Memphis had a room addition, created by turning the attic into a new bedroom with a full bath. The front dormer was converted into an attractive gable end wall with a scenic tri-window view. This kept the look and feel of the home’s original construction. It gave the homeowner a room addition that added more usable living area to the home they loved, in addition to a luxurious brand new bathroom. Both will help increase the value of the house if they ever decide to sell their updated home.
Since this is an older home and this was an attic space, we started off by stabilizing the floors. We also added insulation to the walls to help keep the room at comfortable temperatures and be more energy efficient. New carpet was laid on the floors and stairs. We also painted the room a light color to take advantage of the great light that comes in through the new window. Also in keeping with the original home construction, we added some built in storage. This is something you see a lot of in older Midtown Memphis homes. It also gives the homeowner more usable space in the new room addition, without having to add too much furniture. We paid attention to even the smallest details, and even finished off the builtin storage with colorfully detailed knobs.
The full bath consists of a double vanity and walk-in shower. The vanity has a granite counter top and the shower has custom features that the homeowner chose. Our expert design team also worked with the homeowner to select the perfect custom light fixtures for the new bathroom. For the new bathroom, we also did a custom installation of a new ceramic tile floor. The custom ceramic tile on the shower walls complements the custom tile floor.
The ample lighting of the select light fixtures bring out the colors of the new rooms, and the built-in laundry chute adds a special touch and comfort to the new bedrooms along with pleasure of central air and heat.
