timeless design at Ventana Construction, kitchen remodel seattle

recent projects - kitchens & baths


Kitchen remodels and bath remodels are often the centerpieces of remodels. It's the place where all those beautiful plumbing fixtures, tile and cabinets come together to create an inspiring place to create or relax. All the choices can be overwhelming. Ventana Construction works with our clients to select finishes that meet their budgets and their aesthetics.

kitchen remodel

When your taste runs toward custom, and your new home turns out to have kitchen cabinets from a Big Box store installed by carpentry students, you might have an inkling that a remodel is in your future. For a West Seattle couple, that remodel included integrating design elements and wood species from earlier living room and staircase remodels, and the result is really spectacular. Completed 2015.
The solution was to bring down the dividing walls, opening the space and bringing light from the front, West-facing windows, all the way to the kitchen.

master suite addition

A cozy 2-bedroom cottage near Alki beach was perfect for retirement except for one thing: The main floor bath was not just the master bath, but also the only bath.  A previous remodel had attempted to make this more functional by adding "Jack and Jill" entrances, but it was still less than ideal. The solution was to create a new master bath and closet in one of the two main floor bedrooms, and seal off one of the existing bath doors. Completed 2015.

partial house remodel

When you work on a home that's more than 100 years old, there are bound to be some surprises. We had built an addition on this home five years earlier, and remodeled portions of it, but what we found in the ceiling of the living and dining room when we remodeled those rooms and the upper bedrooms and baths surprised us all. Completed 2014.

bathroom remodel

A crowded Southwest-styled bathroom shared by three people was out of place in this 1920s Tudor and short on usable space. Some brilliant design changes transformed it into serene spa-like bathroom that feels twice the size. Completed 2013.

kitchen & powder room & mudroom remodel

An early 1900s Ballard bungalow has had more than its share of remodels, and not all with stellar outcomes. The original kitchen folded into what must have been a service porch and ended at an added powder room--all with slightly different floor and ceiling levels. The plan was to make everything plane out and modernize the kitchen and bath while keeping the aesthetic of the original home. Completed 2013.

kitchen

This started out as a pedestrian spec house kitchen from the '90s. A change in floor plan allowed the installation of contemporary cabinets and high-efficiency lighting that wows. Completed 2013.
The new cherry cabinets with extra-wide shaker rails bring a deep wood glow to the remodeled kitchen.  They were selected with budget in mind but constructed with plywood boxes for longevity.

kitchen remodel & new office

This new kitchen was a long time coming for repeat clients of ours in Des Moines. Years of planning and a strict adherence to budget yielded great things for a kitchen that hadn't been updated since the house was built. Completed 2013.
The finished bath is still small, but made to feel bigger with frameless shower door partially over a half wall.  All new tile, Cambria Newhaven counters and updated Kohler plumbing fixtures make for a sleek look

double bath remodel

In a classic '50s rambler, the two main floor bathrooms had been virtually untouched since the house was built. The large shared hall bath suffered from tired finishes and cutesy pink tile. The master bath was tiny, and made even smaller by a built-in cabinet that cut into the shower. A complete makeover was planned during the owner's extended vacation, so they were able to return to two completely remodeled bathrooms. Completed 2013.
With a number of low-voltage and energy-efficient lights, including some recessed into open shelves, the lighting is controlled by a series of dimmers to set the mood perfectly.  It's a kitchen that's a pleasure to cook and entertain in, and with the finest finishes. kitchen remodel Seattle

kitchen & main floor

Their kitchen was a magnet for guests while entertaining, but it felt boxed in and with walls on three sides, it isolated everyone in there from the party. That, and the white-washed wood cabinets, vinyl flooring and carpeting everywhere else was the impetus for a main-floor remodel that included the kitchen, all flooring and an adjacent staircase. Completed 2012.

modern kitchen & entry
2012 PR Design Awards Bronze

A mid-century brick rambler had all the right stuff: a mostly open floor plan, a partial water view, and good bones. The exception was the kitchen: walled off from the dining area, windows in all the wrong places, limited counter space and an '80s-era remodel that had solved none of those problems. The solution was to go contemporary. Completed 2011.
Mostly the bathroom had a case of the uglies: dated tile and fixtures. Ready for a bath remodel Seattle.

custom tile bathroom

When inspiration strikes, it sometimes takes you in surprising directions. This master bath, last updated in the 80s, was in serious need of inspiration. That emerged with the clients' penchant for color and sense that big change can be achieved even with a small budget. Completed 2011.
The entry door is still the same from the master bedroom, but what a difference inside!   Double sinks with their own custom medicine cabinets and a sweet new Cherry Creek window to share. Bathroom remodel Seattle

master suite & kids' bath
2010 REX Award winner

A '40s Tudor in the Mount Baker neighborhood of Seattle had one large ugly bathroom to serve three upstairs bedrooms. The brilliant solution is a double bathroom remodel: by dividing the space in two, there is now an elegant master bath and a spacious kids' bath. Completed 2009.

kitchen remodel
2009 REX Award Winner

More than a dozen years in this home gave the owners plenty of time to think about how to update it while keeping the period details that they love. This kitchen expansion won the Master Builders Association Remodeling Excellence award for kitchens more than $75,000. A new media room, a remodeled bathroom and a new mantle are also part of this project. Completed 2008.
West Seattle bathroom remodel, kids bath remodel

master suite & kids' bath

The challenges of a Tudor are many. In this West Seattle gem, the master suite was hemmed in with badly used space, a miniscule master bath and a bank of windows that actually blocked the view. We added walls here, and relocated the master sink to what had been storage. The result is a light and bright space with a fabulous shower and super cool tile. The kids' bath got a makeover too - with sweet blue hex tile in the shower niche. Completed 2009.

bathroom

Teeny tiny is the only way to describe this bathroom in Normandy Park. But the owner had a vision: To maximize the space and use beautiful materials and a new bay window to make it light, bright and functional. Porcelain tile, Grohe fixtures and lots of mirrors make it spectacular. Completed 2006.
