The Remodelers Council of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties do more than just have a really long. Amongst them is submitting the very best work from the previous year to be put up for the Remodeling Excellence Awards. 425 Magazine has compiled all the winners, broken down by category (Bath, Kitchen, Major Remodel, Commercial, Design Excellence) and price points.
We've picked out a couple of the ones we really appreciated.
Maybe its because we're suckers for complex pattern work but Irons Brothers Construction's detailed bathroom remodel caught our eye. Winner in the "More Than $75,000" category, this bathroom was designed for a client undergoing medical treatment, hence the open shower entry and shower seat tucked behind the wall. That the tiling matches throughout really makes everything feel cohesive.
When it comes to kitchens, we stare at sterile, modern designs all day long. Its a breath of fresh air to see a kitchen that's bright and colorful and has a personality. This remodel comes courtesy of Tenhulzen Residential in the "$55,000 to $75,000" category. The London phone booth-style is the kind of whimsy we can get behind. Asking them to have designed it to look like the TARDIS might have been a step too far. In order to help make colors pop, dark quartz countertops are lit by under-cabinet LEDs.
This Major Remodel Excellence category winner was in the "Less Than $65,000" category and showcases an unused basement that's been turned into a "magical Victorian steampunk bedroom, full bathroom, and a bonus room." Unique Designs did just that.
Alexandra Immel Design took a 1950's Magnolia house and went about modernizing it. In reimagining the home to maximize space, they also reoriented the entire living area to take advantage of its finest asset of all...the view. This one won Design Excellence for "Architectural Design."
