The Design-Build Firm Advantage
As a design-build firm, Wentworth offers architecture, interior design and construction under one roof. If you are looking to remodel your home in Falls Church, Wentworth is your single point of contact. Because we believe in accountability and responsibility at every step, our experienced architects, designers, and skilled craftsmen work collaboratively and are in constant communication throughout every step of the process to create the custom home of your dreams.
The kitchen is your home’s most used room, and it should fit your everyday life, whether you’re an aspiring chef, a busy family, or a world-class host. A kitchen remodeling project is a favorite of Wentworth and always provides the perfect space for a fusion of function and design. A smart and sensitive kitchen remodel can add value to your home and transform a formerly cramped room into a custom space that suits your every need and stylistic preferences.
We begin every kitchen remodeling project with research and base our design on the homeowners’ needs and desires. Many years of experience have shown us that a truly beautiful kitchen is one that is functional and aesthetically pleasing. We have successfully remodeled hundreds of Virginia kitchens with stunning results, on time and within budget, and a Wentworth kitchen renovation will leave you 100% satisfied.
Necessity and Luxury in Your Bathroom Remodel
Bathrooms may be a daily necessity, but your bathroom can also be a place of serenity, with spa-like features and select indulgences. When you hire Wentworth to design and build your new bathroom, the final product will improve your daily routine and add exceptional value to your home.
Our holistic approach to bathroom design takes into consideration all aspects of the current bathroom and surrounding rooms. A bathroom remodeling project can be as simple as updating the bathroom within its current footprint, but typically involves the redesign and reconfiguration of a cramped bathroom and master bedroom. Many of the older homes traditionally found in Falls Church are long on charm but feature bathrooms that leave a lot to be desired. Using our years of experience with home remodeling, we are able to effectively maximize size and minimize cost when approaching a master bathroom remodel.
Reconfiguring Your Home
As Washingtonians’ informal modern lifestyles are better suited to open-plan kitchens and living space, a reconfiguration of your home’s current layout may solve your frustrations while maintaining the things you love about your home. Reconfiguring your Falls Church, Virginia home’s interior space can be an effective way to achieve your dream home without the expense of putting on a whole new addition. A more efficient floor plan, often reveals untapped potential in your home: extra hallway space, old closet configurations and oversized guest rooms are all areas that can be transformed into usable, functional space. A home does not often need more space – existing space simply needs to be better utilized.
Basements are a particularly valuable area of your home. Reconfiguring basement space is a valuable way to benefit from space that already exists in your home. Basement space can often be put to better use as playrooms, home offices, and entertainment spaces. In order to maximize basement space, Wentworth can move or conceal existing mechanical equipment, alter ductwork to gain space, and relocate a poorly laid out bathroom.
If you love your Falls Church neighborhood and don’t want to move to accommodate a growing family unless absolutely necessary, a home addition may be an economical and efficient solution. A Wentworth home addition allows you to keep things you love about your home while improving upon the things you don’t. Whether it’s a larger kitchen, a new bathroom or an extra bedroom, home additions require careful architectural study. Our experienced and award-winning design-build team has worked on numerous home additions, and we understand that a cohesive home addition is achieved through a collaborative design whereby you, your architect, interior designer, and construction team work together to achieve the desired design and budget results.
Personalize Your Home with Custom Details
Custom home details are a way you mark your home as uniquely yours. A Wentworth home remodel can transform your home and add special details and features that fit your lifestyle and design preferences. Our team of home architects and interior designers will work with you to build custom details into your new space, whether that space is a kitchen, a bathroom, or a basement. Custom home details can be simple paneled wood wainscot to enhance a library space or new crown molding with exquisite detailing. Or, in the case of a custom banquette to accommodate your large family dinners, custom details can become the focal point of a room. Used strategically, custom home details will take your home from ordinary to extraordinary.
