Exquisite Kitchen Renovation

Exquisite Kitchen Renovation

Walking into this kitchen is like walking into an HGTV set… needless to say, it’s gorgeous!

Our McDonald Contracting team helped the homeowners create a more stylish, modern, and user-friendly kitchen. We opened up the kitchen height by hiding the soffits, which were being used to hide plumbing and electrical cords. Once we opened it up we were able to move around the appliances to create a better flow.  We also updated all the kitchen countertops and cabinets and added in custom shelves for better storage.

Newly Designed Kitchen & Dining Room

Newly Designed Kitchen & Dining Room

With every new project there is always a before, but in most cases, we forget to take photos and focus on the after. So when our client, Matthew, sent us these before photos, we were thrilled.

Our McDonald Contracting team created a more modern kitchen by knocking down a wall to open up the dining area, used more neutral colors, installed white cabinets, and used gray floor tiles with white tiled backsplash. Everything came together perfectly in this kitchen remodel and we think it looks fantastic.

The homeowner’s we’re also pleased – “Thanks again for all the work you guys did. We’re really happy with the outcome.”

Lincoln Home Renovation

Lincoln Home Renovation

Our team has been working on renovating this modern and beautiful Lincoln, MA home since last summer. The project has been extremely rewarding, teaching us new building techniques and allowing us to work with some talented designers.

The home was originally designed and built by Acorn Deck House Company. This local company is known for building one-of-kind homes, all featuring open floor plans, walls of glass and soaring ceilings. The homeowners loved the design of the home but wanted to make changes to the interior as well as update the exterior of the home.

We worked with local designer Caitlin Sweeney to help us design the new layout. These types of homes can be tricky to renovate mostly due to the fact that the wood ceiling planks are actually a structural component of the house… making it impossible to hide any wires or pipes in them. We were able to add fake beams and increase the size of the existing beams to make them useful while also enhancing the design of the house.

The homeowners wanted the house to feel as it was an extension of nature while also being modern. The large windows allowed us to frame the surrounding nature and the cedar siding makes the house fit perfectly into the rock foundation and neighboring trees. The cable railings, wooden ceilings, and sun-filled skylights help to complete this home. It’s truly one-of-kind

Bright Medford Kitchen

Bright Medford Kitchen

Our team at McDonald Contracting worked with the homeowners at this Medford home to create a kitchen that worked better for their family.  We helped them update their current kitchen and also gave them more space by taking down the dining room wall.  By opening up the kitchen we were able to maximize the appearance of the space while creating more function and design. An open kitchen also promotes easier traffic flow between busy rooms and facilitates more social interaction.  We love how it came out!

We also added corner windows all along the wall to brighten-up the space and to make it feel larger.

Winchester Bathroom Makeovers

Winchester Bathroom Makeovers

We’re continuing to share the transformation of the Winchester home our team recently finished renovating. In last month’s post, we shared the 3rd-floor master suite transformation and today we’re diving into the bathrooms. This home is huge with nothing short of personality! The homeowners did a great job of choosing colors, accents and fixtures to fit with the look of the house, yet give it a fresh new feel.
