Wilmette Home, Bathroom, and Kitchen Remodelers

Sitting just north of Evanston, Illinois is the growing suburb of Wilmette. Wilmette has a rich history in forest preservation and Native American trade, and as time develops, it is important to the village of Wilmette to continue to preserve its history. Wilmette has plenty to offer to its citizens, including a variety of retail and dining options, beautiful lake views, and stunning Victorian architecture. Areté Renovators is a company with a wide range of design and build services spanning from single-family homes to spacious five-bedroom estate restorations. Whatever your home needs may be, we have the experience to help.

Designing and remodeling can be a bit trickier in the suburbs compared to design and build in the city. Despite spacious neighborhoods, there are typically more building codes contractors must adhere to outside of the city. Areté Renovators has the knowledge and skillset to help guide you through the home renovation process and ensure everything is remaining up to proper local building codes. We’re on your side. We want to find solutions to your needs while also being as up-front as possible about our limitations. Trust is important to us, so we do our best to create a foundation for it by being truthful about what we can and cannot do. We hope that by doing so, we can exceed your expectations.

Home Additions and Expansions In Wilmette

With a village that is as rich in history as Wilmette, 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. It is easy to let your vision for your personal space get carried away and lose sight of the house’s original charm. However, additions that increase the value of your home and still keep it cozy and charming will be well worth the investment.

Adding onto your home may seem like a costly investment, but it can have a lasting effect on your home’s resale value. If your house has an appealing new addition, it could increase the value of your home and give you a higher return on your original investment. If your house is single-story and you’re considering an expansion, Areté Renovators can help you decide whether it would be best to add on to the current building or build another story.

Your choice will be based on lot space and also building options. For example, if you have a lot of land available in your backyard, widening your house may be the best option. But, if your neighbors are a little too close for comfort, we can help guide you through what another story addition will look like. 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

In this new era, home additions don’t have to be a complicated process. We will work with you to ensure that you get the most return out of your investment.

Wilmette Bathroom Remodeling

A bathroom renovation can be a pricey undertaking, but it can also be a major return on investment. Kitchens and bathrooms are the first places many homebuyers look when considering a home purchase. Updated bathrooms will reassure them that they don’t have to do all that work themselves if they buy the house, and it is much more appealing to the eye. If you are not looking to sell but still want to renovate, a new bathroom can help increase the functionality of your overall space and give your home a more modern feel.

Remodeling a bathroom can be both fun and stressful. That’s why at Areté, we want to make sure you are always in constant communication with your project manager. We will walk you through each step of the process that comes with designing and renovating your bathroom and make sure you are aware of what is happening every step of the way. We are here to help you turn your remodeling dreams into a reality. 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 also offer complete design and rebuild options for bathrooms. If you have any outlandish and creative ideas, we would love to help you bring those to life. We don’t like to back away from a challenge, and with 20 years of bathroom remodeling experience in the Chicagoland area, we have extensive knowledge that not many companies can offer.
