Lake Forest Home, Bathroom, and Kitchen Remodelers

Along the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan sits Lake Forest, Illinois. Known for its tight-knit community, great schools, and a variety of options to dine and shop local, many people choose to flee the city life for a more laid-back lifestyle here. Lake forest has pretty much kept some of the old charm that was there when it was founded, and many notable architects and designers have roots in this north Chicago suburb. Many different styles of homes can be found here, from single-family bungalows to spacious 6-bedroom estates. Whatever type of design and build services you are looking for, Areté Renovators has experience all across the board.

Designing and building a home is a tough process. There are many restrictions and challenges to think about, which is why we make sure our design and remodeling processes are flexible and collaborative. We want to work with you to find the best solutions to your needs, and we want to be as up-front as possible about what cannot be done. Trust is important, and that’s why we do our best to create a foundation of it that will allow us to meet or exceed your expectations.

Lake Forest Home Additions and Expansions

In this day and age, it’s important to preserve the character of your house and your neighborhood. Additions to a home should be carefully considered before adding them on. These additions should increase the overall value of your home while still keeping its original charm.

While the idea of adding on to your house might seem like a costly investment, you should consider its potential impact on the resale value. If the home has an attractive new addition, it could increase the value of your home and offer a higher return on investment. Whether you plan to expand your single-story house or build up, Areté Renovators can help you determine the best option.

The decision about whether to widen your current house or build upwards depends on your lot space and building options. If you have the land, widening your home may be the best option. However, if your neighbors are a little too close, extending upwards and building a second and third floor may be more beneficial. We can help you decide from the variety of options that come with adding an addition to your home. Here are some of the most common for you to consider.

  • Room extensions
  • Outdoor space conversions
  • New porches or covered decks
  • Additional levels
  • Additional rooms or expansions into your backyard
  • Garage expansions
  • Conversion of single-level garages into multi-level townhomes
  • Home addition with reconfiguring the layout on the existing structure

Adding an addition to your home does not have to be too complicated of a process. Hire Areté, and we will ensure that you get the most return on your investment.

Lake Forest Bathroom Remodeling

A bathroom renovation can be an expensive investment. However, it can also be the area where you see the most return on investment. Kitchens and bathrooms are the first places many homebuyers look when wanting to purchase a home and having an updated bathroom will make those home buyers relieved they do not have to take on that project themselves in the future.

Remodeling a bathroom can be both exciting and stressful, but at Areté, we like to put our client’s minds at ease as much as possible. We will walk you through the various steps that come with designing and renovating and make sure you are staying up to date on each step as the process develops. Here are just a few examples of what you can do to tailor your bathroom remodel to fit you and your family’s needs:

  • Updating the look with fresh colors and paint
  • Adding windows to bring in more natural light
  • Replacing fixtures with high-efficiency or advanced technology options
  • Incorporating green technology, such as greywater reclamation
  • Refinishing or painting cabinetry
  • Custom carpentry and millwork to restore the original charm
  • Rearranging or dividing spaces for privacy, storage, or utility
  • Installing special mobility or accessibility fixtures to age in place

We’re not afraid to break the mold. Whether you’re looking for a complete design and build service or simply some guidance, our interior designers and contractors will work with you during the process. We’ll listen to your wants, must-haves, and pain points in order to design your perfect bathroom.
