This home renovation story begins with John and Barb, a fabulous couple looking to remodel their 15-year old winter home in Bonita Bay, Bonita Springs, Florida. Living in the home only part-time, spending their summers in Oconomowac, Wisconsin, John and Barb had an idea of what they wanted, but didn’t know how to bring it to fruition. They also needed someone who they could trust to renovate their home while they were away in Wisconsin.
Their vision for their home started with a new kitchen, family room and wet bar. Enjoying their time outdoors and on their lanai, they also envisioned improving their indoor-outdoor living space.
With the help of Progressive Design Build, this couple’s home was designed and completed remodeled while they were away, transforming the common area of their home into a more user friendly, functional space. Emphasis was placed on the kitchen and the open floor plan. New tile flooring was installed throughout the space, with all new painting that matched the homeowner’s style and taste. A new Anderson door was also installed from the kitchen to the outdoor living space, replacing heavy sliding glass doors and making access to the lanai easier and more functional.
Wet Bar Challenge:
Working with the designer, who had a clear vision for the wet bar that included a “wave effect” for the backsplash, a temporary problem presented itself. The tile installer knew that he would not be able to cut the radius tile. Progressive Design Build was called in to find a solution, and solution they did. By installing drywall over the tile instead of cutting the tile, we could create the illusion the designer envisioned. Consequently, we installed the tile on the wall and then installed the drywall over the tile. The drywall formed the wave effect, rather than the other way around, and created the illusion of the radius that the designer dreamed of originally.
