The homeowners of this Bitter Lake bungalow created a lot more bang for their buck when they decided to transform their attic into a glowing master suite.
Prior to the remodel, the attic was a bare, dated single space. It offered limited insulation, and the couple had to travel downstairs to use the bathroom. So, they called Model Remodel to transform the attic into a beautiful master suite.
The project began with Model Remodel’s in-house designer reimagining the whole space. First, she exposed the collar ties and consequently raised the ceiling line, making the relatively small space feel instantly larger and more open. Further improving lighting, she added skylights and strategically positioned one so the homeowners could stargaze from their bed. Finally, she added a closet, a TV nook, and a wall to close in the new bathroom.
The biggest transformation came with the new bathroom, which the Model Remodel crew built from the bottom up.
