Creating an Indoor Endless Pool for Family Therapy and Fun

Meeting Special Therapy Needs

When Doug and Christina found themselves facing the challenge of suspended therapy sessions for their son due to pandemic closures, they knew they needed a solution. Their son’s special therapy needs prompted them to explore options for year-round access to a pool. Water therapy offers a myriad of health benefits, especially for individuals with specific therapeutic requirements. Thus, the idea of an indoor Endless Pool was born.

The Home Addition

To accommodate their vision, a small home addition was incorporated into their home, adjacent to the existing sunroom. This addition seamlessly connected to the house, providing convenient access to the pool from both the sunroom and a staircase leading from the garage. 

The split-level design of their home made it effortless to access pool equipment from the garage. Safety regulations were diligently met by ensuring the stairs could be folded away when not in use, ensuring a secure pool entrance.

Family Excitement

While the primary motivation for the pool was the therapeutic needs of their son, it quickly evolved into a source of excitement for the entire family. All three children, along with their parents, eagerly anticipated the endless possibilities the pool offered. From leisurely floating with pool noodles to the invigorating exercise of swimming laps against the Endless Pool’s current options, there was something for everyone to enjoy.

A Visionary Touch

Nestled against a backdrop of a picturesque golf course with stunning sunsets, the family’s daughter had a vision. She imagined the walls of the pool room adorned with colors mirroring the breathtaking sunset views they cherished. Collaborating with Katie DuBree of, the family meticulously selected the hues for the walls. Together, they envisioned the warm, orange glow of the sun setting in the west corner of the room, bringing the beauty of the outdoors inside.

The Ultimate Exercise: Fun

This family’s journey from a suspended therapy session to the creation of an indoor Endless Pool was not just about fulfilling a need; it was about embracing possibilities, fostering connections, and cherishing moments of sheer happiness.

For Creative Contracting, the most gratifying aspect of this project was witnessing a loving family come together to create a special place where fun transcended mere activity. Beyond addressing therapeutic needs, the indoor Endless Pool became a sanctuary where laughter, joy, and bonding flourished. It exemplified how a thoughtful addition could not only cater to practical requirements but also enrich the lives of those it serves.

The Full Reveal: An Aging in Place Addition in Montgomery County

Navigating the large layout of a two-story colonial was not what our clients had in mind as they entered their golden years. Well aware of the changes they needed to make to overcome the challenges of climbing stairs in their current home, this Lansdale couple explored luxury senior living as well as ranch homes in the area. They sought a solution that would not only meet their current needs but also cater to their evolving requirements.

After an exhaustive investigation and a realization of the limits within the housing market, the couple made a smart decision – they chose to enhance their existing home. The addition of a first-floor primary bedroom suite became the cornerstone of their plan, allowing them to remain in the home and neighborhood that holds a special place in their hearts.

A Thoughtful and Contemporary Primary Suite

Lansdale Primary suite

Opting for a more contemporary aesthetic in their new addition, the couple embraced a sophisticated palette of grays and warm neutrals. The primary bedroom suite offers a spacious haven, complete with a small sitting area for moments of quiet reflection. Beautiful glass-paned French Doors were designed to allow no-step access to the expanded patio, creating a harmonious flow between the indoors and outdoors.

Lansdale custom closet

A custom-designed closet in the bedroom provides extra storage, ensuring everything has its place. Pocket doors were thoughtfully designed to maximize the space and provide an uninterrupted flow into the large walk-in closet.

Balancing Beauty and Functionality in This Primary Bathroom

Lansdale aging in place primary bathroom

In the primary bathroom, we strike a perfect balance between beauty and functionality. A double vanity takes center stage, featuring a rich espresso wood and a sleek marble countertop. The brushed nickel fixtures and large-format tile floor display various shades of gray and infuse the space with a sense of sophistication, while the black metal arch mirrors provide a modern touch.

Lansdale aging in place addition bathroom

To meet the practical needs of the homeowners, custom cabinetry has been seamlessly integrated into the primary bathroom. This addition not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also provides extra storage for clothing and laundry essentials. Ensuring a cohesive design, a makeup table in the same rich espresso wood as the double vanity perfectly complements all the cabinetry in this inviting primary bathroom.

Lansdale aging in place shower images

The homeowners’ forward-thinking approach to their future needs was remarkable. To suit both their current lifestyle and future considerations, we crafted a fully accessible, threshold-free shower featuring a bench and a tiled niche for storage. ADA-compliant grab bars ensure safety without compromising the overall design. The shower walls adorned with light gray textured tiles add a touch of sophistication to this walk-in shower, complemented by dark gray floor tiles and a matching shower niche that ties in with the overall bathroom floor design.

Creative Contracting Helps Clients Gracefully Age in Place

The completion of this project not only enhanced the functionality of our client’s living space but has also sparked joy and satisfaction knowing they can remain in their cherished home for years to come.

Creative Contracting 2023 Year in Review

2023 Year in Review

As 2023 comes to a close, we’re taking a look back at some of the memorable projects we completed for our clients across Montgomery and Bucks counties. 2023 was a big year for kitchen transformations in the Philadelphia suburbs. We’re grateful our clients chose to entrust such a significant home remodel to our Creative Contracting team. If you’re considering a kitchen remodel in the new year, these projects can serve as a great inspiration of what is possible when it comes to kitchen design. 

At Creative Contracting, our approach is always to listen to your needs, understand your style and preferences and turn that into the space you’ve been dreaming of! With our design-build team, we’re the only design- build firm you need to complete a kitchen, bath, whole home remodel or addition project. Now let’s look back at some of those gorgeous kitchens we renovated in 2023.  

Bucks County Kitchen Gets A Sunny and Elegant Refresh

Creative Contracting 2023 Year in Review

This Warminster family came to us because their kitchen didn’t reflect their modern, sophisticated style. Beyond the outdated aesthetic, it lacked light and the dark atmosphere made it feel even more cramped and uninviting. In addition, our clients wanted to find some creative ways to maximize their storage space to make the kitchen much more enjoyable to use. 

Creative Contracting 2023 Year in Review

To address all of these requests, our design team went to work to come up with a strategy to lighten and brighten the space while giving it a modern refresh that included plenty of ingenious storage solutions. This began with the foundational elements of the space: new vinyl plank flooring in a warm spring oak color and crisp white custom shaker cabinetry which added plenty of elevated architectural elements to the space. 

Creative Contracting 2023 Year in Review

From there, we added in two types of complementary countertops in natural black stone and white quartz to add visual interest. We removed a cumbersome above-the-sink window and replaced it with a trio of windows for more user-friendly operation.

Finally, we added in the finer details to create a fresh, refined look. These included brushed gold cabinet hardware, dimmable task lighting and gold chandelier-style pendant lighting, along with a natural Carrara marble tile to further warm up the space. And to address those storage concerns, we crafted an oversized island with ample drawers and shelving to handle pantry staples and all of those kitchen gadgets that should be close at hand. The end result is a bright, inviting space that is sure to welcome the family in from Sunday breakfast to weeknight dinners. 

From Basic Kitchen to Breathtaking in Montgomery County

Creative Contracting 2023 Year in Review

In Wynnewood, a family’s love for cooking together sparked a kitchen transformation request: bring in more light, more space, and more connection to the outdated kitchen. Their old kitchen felt isolated from the rest of the living spaces. And the style left a lot to be desired. So our team went to work, dismantling walls that were breaking up the flow of conversation and connection. The result is an open, airy kitchen space that harmoniously connects with the surrounding living areas. 

Creative Contracting 2023 Year in Review

Our clients connected with the right, classic feel of navy blue, so we used this color for the shaker cabinets and accented it with brushed gold pulls and a timeless gray subway tile for the backsplash. Wide plank flooring brings a touch of warmth to the space and a gorgeous range hood and spacious island create focal points that invite both the family and their guests to be a part of their culinary passion. 

Modern Farmhouse Gets an Elevated Touch in Montgomery County, PA

Creative Contracting 2023 Year in Review

Rounding out some of our favorite kitchen remodels we completed in the past year is this light and airy Montgomery kitchen transformation. What made this kitchen remodel particularly memorable was the amount of small detail decisions we guided our clients through. 

Creative Contracting 2023 Year in Review

We assisted in incorporating warm, natural elements into the white, modern space, starting with the traditional red oak floors and extending to the gorgeous white oak island. Every detail, from the custom shelving and a charging storage cabinet to the addition of floor-length windows and a striking Brizio luxury faucet, was deliberately chosen to enhance the style and atmosphere of the space.
Upgrade your kitchen, enhance your daily experience, and create lasting memories in an inviting space. Imagine the possibilities for the upcoming holiday season. Whether it’s your kitchen or any other area in your home, the Creative Contracting team is ready to assist you in completely renovating your space, making it more functional and visually appealing.

Embracing Timeless Elegance: The White Kitchen Reimagined

Navigating the winding path of a major home renovation can lead to a plethora of questions. One hot topic in the kitchen realm? The color conundrum. White kitchens, while wildly popular, often create hesitation among homeowners. Fear not! White kitchens aren’t just a trend; they’re a timeless staple. Worried your white haven might lack character? Think again. The possibilities to enhance your all-white kitchen are as abundant as the spice aisle. Here are a handful of our favorite kitchens, proving that a white kitchen is the ultimate canvas for versatility.

Dress Up Your Kitchen With Seasonal Colors

White and Black Kitchen with pops of Yellow

This kitchen features a clean white and black design with custom cabinetry, providing an ideal canvas for adding touches of seasonal color. In this case, we chose splashes of yellow for the client. The original travertine floors seamlessly complement the new custom cabinetry and natural stone backsplash. Accent lighting plays a crucial role, and the uniformity of the glass elements contributes to enlarging the space and infusing it with a sense of brightness and warmth.

Transcend Trends with Transitional Design

Transitional Kitchen with White Cabitnetry

The white cabinetry in this family-friendly entertainment space adopts a more contemporary vibe, enhanced by non-mullioned glass on both cabinets and windows, streamlining the overall design. Classic elements, such as traditional hardware and elegant trim, introduce a touch of tradition, resulting in a transitional design for the kitchen.

Soft details like the light gray island and metal screening in the bar sink cabinets add subtle nuances that contribute to the overall stunning appeal of the space.

Use Color and Texture in a White Kitchen

White Kitchen with Red Accents

The coffered ceiling, wainscoting, and cabinet trims showcase classic Hampton-style custom woodwork.

Detail of Basket Weave Backsplash in a White Kitchen

The backsplash, featuring a dimensional basket weave, reinforces the timeless patterns of a family kitchen. Black and white surfaces play a grounding role for the white elements, and the whimsical touch of red accents coordinates seamlessly with the hardworking Wolf range knobs.

Complement White Cabinets With Wood Accents

Lower Gwynedd White Kitchen with Wood Accents

In this elegant family kitchen, a harmonious combination of soft white oak and brushed gold creates a beautiful aesthetic. The newly refinished oak floors, custom-stained to complement the cabinetry, make a stunning visual impact. The expanded French doors contribute to visually enlarging the existing space.

White Oak Shelving and Mantle

Mindfully placed white oak extends to features like shelves with a hidden recharging center and file cabinets, creating a sweet family workspace. The same oak used for these elements also replaces the family room fireplace mantel, ensuring a consistent accent color throughout the entire space.

Infuse Character With Rustic Charm

White Kitchen with Rustic Charm  

This charming in-law suite on a Bucks County farm estate exudes cozy warmth. Embracing the property’s origins, country touches like a honed black granite countertop, beadboard, and bubbled glass contribute to a rustic atmosphere. The use of mixed metals is defined by a traditional faucet, bronze hardware, and copper pots.

In the world of kitchen renovations, the possibilities are as diverse as personal tastes. Your white kitchen can be a canvas for unparalleled creativity and individuality. From subtle rustic accents to bold modern statements, the key is to embrace the unique aspects that reflect your style. Whether it’s a splash of color, textured surfaces, or distinctive hardware choices, these kitchen projects serve as a reminder that your white kitchen can truly stand out.

Transforming Traditions: A Fun-filled Family Hub Evolves into a Luxury Spa

Transforming Traditions: A Fun-filled Family Hub Evolves into a Luxury Spa

Transforming Traditions: A Fun-filled Family Hub Evolves into a Luxury Spa


When we first stepped into Mark and Linda’s basement, it was a bustling family hub filled with laughter and activity. Craft projects, gaming marathons, kids’ sleepovers, and family TV nights were the norm in this space. It was a versatile area that also housed a small workout zone and a convenient eating bar. But after two decades, it was time for a change.

Evolving Needs

This year, Creative Contracting had the privilege of returning to Mark and Linda’s home to remodel their basement once more. The dynamics of their family had evolved, and their vision for the basement had shifted drastically. No longer a hub for family activities, this space was now reimagined as a luxury private gym and spa.

Luxury Amenities Galore

Transforming Traditions: A Fun-filled Family Hub Evolves into a Luxury Spa


The new basement is nothing short of a lavish sanctuary. It now boasts a fully-equipped gym, a rejuvenating sauna, and a lavish bathroom that exudes opulence. Every detail has been meticulously planned to ensure maximum comfort and luxury. There’s even a Subzero wine fridge for those post-workout indulgences, and a state-of-the-art massage chair to ease those tired muscles.

Sauna in Renovated Basement


After a relaxing sauna session, a handy ice maker in the bathroom allows you to quickly fill the oversized soaking tub with refreshing, ice-cold water.

Transforming Traditions: A Fun-filled Family Hub Evolves into a Luxury Spa


The large shower and warming drawer for towels complete the spa-like experience. No more hauling towels up and down the basement steps – there’s even a washer and dryer conveniently placed in the bathroom.


Modern Aesthetics

Transforming Traditions: A Fun-filled Family Hub Evolves into a Luxury Spa


The aesthetic transformation of our client’s basement is remarkable. The ceiling has been opened up to add height and painted in a sophisticated matte black, creating an industrial edge. The new LVF flooring, laid on an angle, cleverly mitigates any sense of narrowness in the space. Custom hand-applied paint techniques adorn the walls, exuding an edgy, gym-inspired vibe.

The black custom cabinetry adds a touch of glamour while harmonizing with the black ceiling, serving as a chic anchor for the overall look.

The Road to Bathroom Bliss

Transforming Traditions: A Fun-filled Family Hub Evolves into a Luxury Spa


The bathroom is a showstopper in its own right. Bold encaustic tiles steal the spotlight, while the black flooring and warm tones exude elegance. White custom cabinetry complement the bold elements of this bathroom and provide ample storage for our clients’ needs.

Transforming Traditions: A Fun-filled Family Hub Evolves into a Luxury Spa


The challenge of installing the enormous spa required lowering it through the upstairs family room floor since it wouldn’t fit through the basement doors. Despite this obstacle, you’d never guess that the family room flooring was ever disturbed.

Illuminating Ambiance

Transforming Traditions: A Fun-filled Family Hub Evolves into a Luxury Spa


In a room with no natural light, lighting becomes paramount. The walls in the bathroom feature a hand-applied plaster finish that gleams in the artificial glow. Battery-operated flickering candles in large rattan holders not only add a soft, ambient glow but also serve as a safety precaution for the family’s cats.

Transforming Traditions: A Fun-filled Family Hub Evolves into a Luxury Spa


Speaking of which, the doors have been custom altered to allow the feline family members easy access to their kitty litter boxes in the basement.

Upgrading With Sleek Fixtures

Transforming Traditions: A Fun-filled Family Hub Evolves into a Luxury Spa


To complete the look, fixtures in the luxury spa bath have been finished in a matte black and brushed nickel, adding a modern touch that harmonizes with the overall aesthetic. This amazing basement transformation is a testament to the evolving needs and tastes of a family over time. From a bustling family space to a luxury gym and spa retreat, it’s a stunning example of how creativity, craftsmanship, and attention to detail can breathe new life into a cherished space. At Creative Contracting, we take pride in turning your visions into realities, one project at a time. Contact us today to see how you can transform your space to suit your current lifestyle.

Our Blue Bell Bathroom Remodel Wins the 2023 Chrysalis Award

Recently the bathroom remodel we completed for our clients in Blue Bell, Montgomery County was entered into the 2023 Chrysalis Award sponsored by Qualified Remodeler and Kitchen & Bath Design News. We’re thrilled to announce that this project was awarded the Chrysalis Award for the North region of the U.S. for projects with a budget between $50,000 – $75,000. 

From start to finish, we’re so proud of how our team listened to our clients’ needs, designed around their budget and vision to completed the space with exceptional attention to detail. We detailed our approach and how our design-build process allowed for a seamless transition from concept through construction and finally to the stunning finished result.

A Sensational Bathroom Remodel Takes Shape

Our Blue Bell clients came to us wanting to give a new, more dramatic look to their dated, beige bathroom which lacked space and functionality.

The homeowners wanted to swap their old jetted tub for a sleek new soaking tub and bring more style to their basic shower stall. The scope of the remodel would require a complete gut of the entire bathroom in order to bring our clients’ vision to life. Their goal was to create a transitional-style bathroom with the welcoming touches of furniture-style cabinetry paired with state-of-the-art technology such as a Bluetooth controlled shower and body sprays. 

After presenting a floor plan, we then began to bring this bathroom remodel to life using design software that allows us to create 3D renderings of the new space. This enables our clients to immerse themselves into the renovation before construction begins. 

To create that rich, luxurious look our clients craved we paired a dark shower tile with a custom glass doorless entry to enhance the transitional aspect of the space. The pairing of traditional elements, such as the rustic cabinetry and black metal hardware, with modern touches, like the polished nickel fixtures adds a glamorous contrast that’s visually captivating. 

The black and white color palette with neutral gray walls and dark wood is soothing and sets the tone for a tranquil aesthetic that gives the bathroom an elevated level of sophistication and timeless beauty. We’re proud to report that this project stayed within budget and our detailed design and planning allowed for a streamlined process that avoided last minute changes and costly delays.

Creative Solutions to Design Challenges

To not exceed the target budget, our designers needed to find a creative way to fit all of the spacious additions into the bathroom’s original footprint. Part of these confines included needing to keep the toilet in its original location to avoid costly plumbing rerouting. 

By eliminating an underused linen closet, we were able to add more space to provide room for the soaking tub, more spacious shower and the generously-sized vanity that our homeowners had their heart set on.  

To give the space the elegant, dramatic feel that our clients requested, we brought in rich, dark tiles to ensconce the shower walls and surround the elegant soaking tub. Since the space is windowless, we offset these deep tones of the shower with a crisp white porcelain floor and luxurious Carrara marble countertops. With a combination of wood, stone and tile, the space exudes natural elegance and a harmonious style.

Building an Award-Winning Bathroom in Blue Bell

We’re grateful to the judges who chose to honor our work on this bathroom remodel. But what means the most to us is how thrilled the homeowners are with their remodeled bathroom. Knowing that we were able to create a space that perfectly reflects the refinement of their personal style in a space that will be a welcomed retreat for the entire family for years to come, is what matters most to our team. 

By redesigning the layout of this previously cramped bathroom, our team was about to include everything that was on our clients’ wishlist while staying on budget. Our thorough design and materials selection process helped ensure a smooth construction phase and perfectly executed outcome. We look forward to creating more award-winning spaces for homeowners in Bucks and Montgomery Counties.  

Crafting Dreams: The Journey of Renovating a Colonial-style home to a Luxe Modern Farmhouse 

At Creative Contracting, we firmly believe that dreams can indeed come true. We understand that finding the perfect home can often feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. The lure of brand-new houses with their pristine façades often comes at the cost of sacrificing space and customization. Conversely, charming neighborhoods boasting lush gardens are sometimes plagued by dated houses that don’t quite align with modern tastes. That’s where we step in – when faced with the challenge of reinventing a home to fit a family’s unique needs and style within a realistic budget, our creative juices start flowing.

Revitalizing a Conventional Brick Home With Innovative Design

To begin, the exterior of the house will undergo a striking makeover. The once-traditional brick façade will embrace a sleek modernity with dark siding and touches of natural wood. 

The brick itself didn’t escape the transformation, being adorned in a contemporary color palette that harmonizes with the overall aesthetic.

In the heart of the home, a new addition takes the form of a floor-to-ceiling windowed great room. This addition not only floods the interior with natural light but also capitalizes on the property’s serene backyard views, providing a seamless connection between indoors and outdoors.

Visualizing the Interior and Crafting Informed Design Choices


The journey from concept to realization starts with precise planning. A comprehensive floor plan is crafted, meticulously tailored to the homeowner’s wish list.

This particular plan unfolds into a breathtaking great room, a functional home office, and an open-concept kitchen that not only boasts ample seating but also caters to modern entertainment needs with a dedicated TV viewing area. 

3D Rendering of Interior Kitchen

Traditional spaces like the formal living and dining rooms gracefully give way to a more casual and inviting living area, perfect for fostering family togetherness and socializing.

Keys to Design-Build Success

As we move forward in the design process, interior renderings become a valuable tool for conveying the envisioned transformation. Our clients step into our conference room, where three-dimensional plans come to life on a generous big-screen TV. This immersive experience allows them to tangibly explore their future space, making informed decisions with confidence. Once final selections are made, our drawings and renderings evolve to showcase these personalized touches, providing a visual roadmap for the project’s execution.

Designing a project – be it a modest enhancement or an extensive renovation – involves a multitude of moving parts. Our role extends from the initial spark of an idea to the grand finale of a completed project. The time invested in crafting a holistic design that aligns with both vision and budget is pivotal to the success of the project. Once construction is underway, specialized software becomes our ally, fostering seamless communication between clients, production teams, and on-site workers. This ensures that queries are promptly addressed and that everyone is on the same page regarding daily progress.

In conclusion, the journey of transforming this colonial-style home into a modern farmhouse masterpiece is a testament to our commitment to turning dreams into reality. With a blend of innovative technology, creative design solutions, and a passionate team, our Design-Build remodeling firm stands at the forefront of making our client’s aspirations come alive. Whether it’s a simple renovation or a complete overhaul, we embrace every opportunity to create living spaces that deeply connect with the homeowner.

Reimagining a Lansdale Home: A First Floor Suite Addition for Comfort and Aging in Place

3D Rendering of Colonial Home with Addition

Do you love your neighborhood, but feel like your two-story home isn’t the best layout for aging in place? That’s just what our Lansdale clients were facing when they came to us looking for a clever solution. Hearing their concerns about constantly having to navigate the large layout, including the stairs of their two-story Colonial, working together with the clients, we developed a plan to construct an accessible ranch-style addition. Read on to discover how this practical step can allow you to live in style while remaining in the home you love. 

An Accessible Addition Is a Practical Alternative to Moving 

Today, many active seniors are questioning the costs involved in downsizing to a smaller home. With an ever-shrinking home inventory, it can be especially difficult to find a home with accessibility and safety features that provide one-floor living.

The other option is attempting to land one of the small number of spots in a 55+ community. The new housing market for one floor, luxury living in a 55+ community can be outrageously priced. It is also extremely competitive in Montgomery County and the surrounding suburbs, so finding a new place that you love can become a very difficult task in our area.

While 55+ communities offer accessible construction, we’re meeting many people who don’t want to leave the house that they worked so hard to make a home over the years. Here at Creative Contracting, we understand that your house isn’t just a property but a place where some of your best memories have been made, where your children have been raised, holidays have been spent and traditions created. There’s also the neighborhood to think of, a place where you may have spent years forming bonds and building friendships. Leaving all that you’ve spent years working towards doesn’t have to be the only option. We are seeing a continuing trend for people to age in place in the home they love and we’re happy to be there to make this possible. 

Explore Our Plans for This Lansdale Home Addition

We are thrilled to share the details of our latest project — a first-floor ranch-style addition that will transform our client’s home into the ultimate aging-in-place retreat! After extensive research, this couple knew exactly what they wanted in a primary suite. We listened to their desires and paid attention to every detail. The couple envisioned a luxurious and functional space that would not only cater to their current needs but also accommodate their future requirements. Working closely with our design team, they expressed a strong preference for an open layout to enhance accessibility and maneuverability, allowing for easy movement throughout the space.

Creative Contracting Proposed Floor Plans

As you can see from our floor plans, this new addition will create a first-floor primary suite, equipped with a primary bathroom, that will ensure comfort, accessibility and elegance. The couple’s new bathroom will incorporate features that will truly elevate their experience. A curbless shower will be the highlight of this design, thoughtfully designed for easy and safe entry.  

Creative Contracting Bathroom Plans

Safety is of the utmost importance, which is why we will install a shower seat and safety bars. But please don’t think for a moment that practicality compromises style! Our experienced interior designers will incorporate these elements, ensuring that they blend harmoniously with the modern aesthetic of the space.


Creative Contracting Front Elevation

Creative Contracting 3D Addition

With the desire for a distinguished stone façade, the couple envisioned an addition that would set their home apart from the rest. Our team worked closely with them to craft a design that captured their aspirations while thoughtfully considering their budget. After exploring various options, our clients decided to opt for the same siding of their existing home, skillfully blending the new addition with the original structure. Thanks to our meticulous 3D rendering, it’s evident that this cost-effective choice will create a seamless integration that will elevate the home’s original charm.

Stay In Your Home Instead of Uprooting Your Family

 Our Lansdale clients love the idea of lower-maintenance living and that’s just what they’ll enjoy with this one-floor living that’s built for their convenience. And the best part is, they won’t have to give up the beautiful and spacious home where they raised their children in a neighborhood where they’ve built deeply rooted community ties. As housing prices continue to rise and the market of new homes remains small, the advantages of modifying your family home and investing in a place you already love can make the most sense.

Take a New Look At Accessibility

At Creative Contracting, we understand that you’ve worked hard all of your life to enjoy your retirement years. That’s why we’re here to help you live those years in style and comfort! The Creative Contracting team is committed to being experts in the many new options available and we’re experienced in helping homeowners in Montgomery County design an addition that makes sense for their individual lifestyle and needs. 

We believe you don’t have to sacrifice style when designing for accessibility and make a point to create spaces that look as stunning as they are safe. For instance, forget what you know about those institutional looking tub safety bars. Today we can add in more attractive options such as framed showers and trendy wet-rooms (which allow for a shower to be placed without any need for a step or threshold).

Design Planning: The Foundation for a Flawless Design-Build Journey

Design Build Collage of Finished Projects

Every breathtaking remodel begins well before any flooring is laid or paint is applied. The design phase is a crucial part of every successful home renovation. For homeowners in Bucks and Montgomery counties, Creative Contracting is here as a full-service design-build firm to provide all of the ideas, insight and expertise from start to gorgeous finish.

The design phase is so important because it’s here when our experienced team can offer ingenious solutions to home issues that have confounded homeowners. Whether it’s an awkward floor plan or too little storage, our team prides itself on bringing helpful ideas that delight and exceed our clients’ expectations. Let’s explore more about what’s involved in the design phase of a remodel and some examples of how it helped to transform spaces for your neighbors in the Philadelphia suburbs. 

A Personalized Approach to Your Remodel Project 

Before the Creative Contracting team begins to work on your home, we’ll be there to walk you through the design phase. This begins with a consultation with one of our expert home remodeling specialists who will take the time to ask about your style preferences, what you’d like to change in your home and your target budget. 

During the design phase, we’ll take measurements, photos and detailed notes of your space to develop a design plan that will come to life with computer-generated imagery so you can “see” your remodel before it happens. Your input allows the designers to fine-tune the design until it’s exactly what you envisioned. Once your remodel design is finalized and the budget is set, we develop a project timeline with you so that all steps are transparent and approved.

A Kitchen Designed for Organization and Accessibility 

Doylestown Kitchen Plans


Our Doylestown client came to us wanting to open up their kitchen to allow it to feel more connected with the other rooms on the first floor. They longed for a brighter, elegant kitchen that was more open and inviting. As you can see from the existing floor plan, the kitchen was separated from the dining area by two walls, leaving a small opening in between. This configuration often restricts the flow and functionality of the kitchen, leaving the home chef isolated while preparing meals. An enclosed kitchen also limits the amount of natural light causing the space to feel dark and cramped.

Doylestown Kitchen Before Image Dark and Cramped

Since the kitchen had been cut off from the rest of the home, the dark wood cabinets made the space feel even more cramped. They also struggled to find places to store all of their small appliances, kitchen accessories and snacks. The result was countertop clutter that further added to the uninviting feel. 


Kitchen Open Concept Sketch

Providing the client with a sketch of the new kitchen allowed them to envision the space which was based on detailed requirements we uncovered during the design phase. They asked our team to design a space that felt luxurious and welcoming, with brighter colors, sophisticated cabinetry, and more space to store everything. To give them this grand, spacious feel, we proposed removing several walls and relocating the placement of many of the kitchen’s cabinets.  In addition, we suggested design options, such as white cabinetry with furniture trim finishes, a gorgeous stove hood and built-in appliances that give a fully custom, streamlined look.

Once the renovations were completed, the once dated kitchen became an entertainment destination. The family can now comfortably accommodate large parties, meal prep with ease and store all their small kitchen appliances away.

Beverage Center in Open Concept Kitchen

To achieve their vision of clutter-free counters our team designed an elegant beverage center with hidden appliance storage. Now the kitchen feels like a part of a cohesive entertainment space and our clients are able to enjoy cooking in the kitchen while conversing with family in the dining room. And they’ll never miss a second of the big game on TV in the family room when they visit the kitchen for a drink refill. 

Reconfiguring a Bathroom Into a Stunning Space 

Bathroom Existing Floor Plans

At first glance, a tiny primary bath doesn’t appear to hold many design possibilities. That’s why our Ambler clients came to us to reimagine this space to make it something spectacular. The space included an awkward dressing area, which our design team realized held the key to transforming the space. 

By removing walls and closets, we were able to open up the space to instantly expand the look and feel of the room. We took the underused dressing area and reconstructed it into a beautiful and glamorous bathroom space with a gorgeous custom vanity, an enlarged shower and plenty of accessible storage. 

In the design phase, we saw an opportunity to reconfigure the doorways and suggested utilizing pocket doors to increase the usable square footage of the space. This allowed us to increase the size of the shower and make the space feel more expansive. The use of  3D renderings like this enabled our clients to completely immerse themselves in their bathroom remodel and experience their space before construction began.

Working closely with the owners, we were able to fulfill the look and the functionality of the perfect en suite. They even have easy-to-access storage that can now house their large collection of accessories and shoes.

Lighter and Brighter: See How We Transform One Warminster Kitchen Into a Multifunctional Masterpiece

Our Warminster, Bucks County clients approached us with dreams of a new, more welcoming kitchen. A young family with a busy schedule, they wanted to update the look of this space and add in more functionality. Together, each element of this kitchen was carefully chosen and designed to give this busy family a gathering place to create life’s most precious memories. 

Bright and Breezy Open Floor Plan

These Bucks County homeowners originally reached out to our team because they felt like their kitchen was dark and cramped. They longed for more storage and wanted an updated feel to the space which felt more bright and modern. To provide them with this kitchen facelift, we created a plan to open up the floor plan and remove the soffits around the window, which had been preventing sunlight from entering the space.

From Cabinets to Countertop, Crisp White Touches Add A Polished Aesthetic

Kitchen open concept before and after

As you can see by the before and after kitchen photos, these changes truly transformed the look of the space, bringing in a new crisp, clean, high-end look. The new kitchen features Luxury Vinyl Flooring in a warm, spring oak tone.

White custom shaker cabinetry with brushed gold hardware is complemented by two types of countertop finishes. Natural black stone creates a dramatic look around the perimeter of the kitchen, while white quartz along the ample center island keep the bright and open atmosphere consistent. To add accent and task lighting, we installed under cabinet and interior dimmable lighting, allowing the family to instantly set the right mood for the space.

To allow more natural light to shine in, we installed a new user-friendly set of three windows above a new farmhouse sink, replacing an oversized fixed window which didn’t allow for easy opening. Natural Carrara marble lines the perimeter wall, providing a backsplash with its soft, natural tones.

Across the room, we made sure to create the ultimate meal prep area. A cutting-edge induction cooktop sits flush against the countertop and is framed above by a generously sized arched hood, which we custom designed to perfectly match the style of the cabinetry. Located just a pivot step away from the cooktop, we installed a new refrigerator and stacked ovens.

Storage Solutions Throughout This Bucks County Kitchen

Because this Warminster family approached us for help with their kitchen storage issues, we wanted to make sure we fully utilized the space for maximum storage potential. Our goal was to make easily accessible storage that was convenient and efficient for this busy family. 

A Kitchen Island Brimming with Storage

To increase the storage potential for our clients’ kitchen, we made sure to include a generously sized island which features plenty of useful places for all of their necessities. This all-white architectural element is centrally located within the space. To give it a built-in feel, we crafted it  with touches of trim to give the impression of a custom-built piece of furniture. The side shelving feature will provide the family with plenty of room for their favorite cookbooks and beloved decorative pieces. An elegant prep sink on the opposing side of the island adds further functionality and is conveniently located adjacent to the appliances. For the finishing touch, we installed two large gold chandelier-style pendant lights above the island for an eye-catching touch of elegance which elevates the entire space.

Bucks County kitchen storage solutions

Our clients love the unique and innovative storage solutions we present to solve their space issues. And our Warminster clients were no exception. From a floor-to-ceiling cabinet area to a matching appliance garage, we made sure each and every storage need was addressed. Open corner shelving and mullion glass doors provide places to show off the family’s personal style. And thanks to all of the options that exist in custom cabinetry, we were able to provide very specific solutions to the homeowners’ storage issues, such as a pull-out spice drawer that lets you instantly get a full view to quickly find what you’re looking for.  

Enhance Entertaining with a Convenient Beverage Center

A finishing touch to this Bucks County kitchen remodel, the new beverage nook we created is sure to keep this busy family happy for years to come. Now, guests and family members alike can access drinks without disturbing the cooks in the kitchen. Featuring matching white cabinets and black countertop that stays consistent with the look of the rest of the kitchen, a mini fridge was installed for effortless self-service. This is topped with a gorgeous extra-wide plank floating shelf with under-lighting, which warms up the space and provides the family with a stunning way to show off their art and photos. A beverage nook is becoming increasingly popular with our clients because of the ease of entertaining it creates while providing a daily convenience to the homeowners.
