The Beginning of a Lasting Relationship

Our journey with this family started with an attic renovation in their1904 Victorian home in Summit Hill. Over the years, we have undertaken numerous projects for this family of four in various homes. Most recently, in our work at Reimagined Living, we remodeled their kitchen and mudroom. This project however is a story of transforming a once unusable attic into a getaway space featuring a cozy living room, a bedroom, and an ensuite bathroom.

Before & After

Living Room and Wetbar

Attic Renovation with Angled Perfection

The angles you see are the angles within the roofline. With older homes, it’s typical to see a sagging roofline. One big challenge was to eliminate the sag and straighten out the roof so all the lines were crisp and straight. 


Room to Learn & Grow

With two young kids, it’s important to have a dedicated space for them to learn and grow. To keep play organized, there are custom built-in cabinets with colorful inserts. Close by is a small table for arts and crafts projects. With a sink nearby, it’s no problem if the kids make a mess!

Movie Night Snacks

It’s movie time! Head over to the wet-bar equipped with cabinets and a mini refrigerator stocked with snacks and beverages. Before the movie (and all throughout), it’s easy to quickly grab your goodies. When the credits start to roll, it’s a no fuss clean-up with a sink feet away.

Bedroom & Bath


Soft Pink, Spare Bedroom

An extra bedroom is beneficial not just to the homeowners, but for their friends and family as well.  Visitors will have a private room with an ensuite bathroom, plus the entire floor to themselves. When no one is visiting, it serves as a quiet place to escape a certain someone’s snoring.


Separate Bath & Shower

The greatest advantage of having a separate bath and shower is choice. You may choose to spend an hour soothing those aches and pains in the a jetted tub.  Or for a quick clean, hop in the frameless shower. A clever use of space, as it sits inside the wall — perhaps, a true water closet


Replicating Existing Home Details

Using design elements such as the vintage beaded wainscotting and paneling was important in order to replicate the existing first floor bathroom. The hexagonal mosaic floor tile is another classic vintage look. If you love the modern vintage aesthetic of this bathroom, you’ll love these modern vintage bathroom projects.
