Often a “great room” is not a great room until it has been remodeled with excellent design. That was the case for this Cleveland Park, Washington, D.C. 1990s townhouse. The new homeowner called in our design/build team to redesign their space, a 17’ x 22’ great room. Their goal was to improve the old wet bar alcove, and give the room a sophisticated design remake. The homeowner requested that the space have a “wow” factor, a hint of a posh hotel lobby, replace the old tacky French doors, and cover the towering brick fireplace with marble. With this in mind the homeowner sought our design & construction expertise to solve the problems. As part of the overall design effort furniture plans were created to best determine how to utilize the space.
