Kitchen Remodeling

Your kitchen should fit your lifestyle and needs—after all, it is one of the most used rooms. A kitchen renovation project is a favorite of Wentworth and always provides the perfect space for a fusion of function and design. A smart 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. 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 kitchens with stunning results, on time, and within budget.

Bathroom Renovation

Bathrooms may be a daily necessity, but your bathroom can also be a place of serenity and beauty. When you hire Wentworth to design and build your new Potomac, Maryland bathroom, the final product will improve your everyday 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 master or small bathroom remodel 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 Potomac are charming but feature bathrooms that need improvement. 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 interior space

reconfigured spaces galleryAs local homeowners’ informal, modern lifestyles are better suited to open-plan kitchens and living spaces, a reconfiguration of your home’s current layout may be the perfect solution. Reconfiguring your 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 space. A home does not often need more space – existing space simply needs to be better used.

Reconfiguring basement space during a basement finishing project 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.

Home Additions

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 in Potomac, Maryland, 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.

A house renovation typically follows this order:

How long does it take to do a full renovation?

On average, a whole-home renovation can take anywhere from four to eight months or more. This timeline is dependent on the size and scope of the project and may be better established once the final plans are in place.

How should I choose a contractor?

Choose a contractor that has established themselves as an industry leader with the experience, knowledge, and credentials needed for the successful completion of your remodel. Ask for referrals and view past remodeling projects to determine the quality of the work and attention to detail. 

“ We have been very happy not only with the workmanship of our project team including attention to detail when a change in plans is advisable, but also with their consideration for our preferences, our requests, and our schedules, in addition to their attention to leaving the work area tidy and as clean as practicable. Of course work on one's house involves disruption, but they have minimized that in all ways possible. ”
