Bright Main Level Renovation with Kids Bedroom Addition in McLean

Homeowner Challenge:

In this project, our clients needed more room to fit their growing family and better functionality. Their kitchen and main level were sectioned off and unwelcoming, and there was no room for their two boys to have their own space. The BOWA team needed to help them rethink their existing space, while also looking at adding more.

The BOWA Solution:

BOWA’s In-House Design Team set out to make this home more efficient for the family. On the main level, space was absorbed from existing dining and family rooms, and the powder room was relocated to expand the kitchen’s footprint. A fireplace was removed from the family room and the space was transformed into a family foyer and office with plenty of storage and easy access to the garage. The kitchen was enlarged and now features a beautiful family island, plenty of counterspace and walls of storage. Above the garage, the BOWA team built a second-story addition that includes two new kids’ bedrooms, a bathroom and laundry room. With these modifications, the family has enough room to stay in their home and continue to grow comfortably.

Project Highlights:

  • Handmade tile kitchen backsplash.
  • Large colorful range that acts as the focal point of the kitchen.
  • Family mudroom and office convenient to garage entry.
