Remodeling a Contemporary kitchen in Cedarburg, Wisconsin

“Good food and a warm kitchen are what make a house a home.” – Rachael Ray

Every great meal starts with a recipe. A list of ingredients carefully selected for quality and taste. Thorough instructions to ensure success. That’s how we approach kitchen remodels. Partnering with you, we’ll create a plan and select all the right ingredients to make sure the process is smooth, and the end result is a masterpiece.

Our typical kitchen remodel involves a complete transformation, starting with rethinking all the elements of your kitchen’s layout to create more functionality, and often more space. We’ll install new lighting, appliances, cabinets, countertops, flooring and tiling. Most projects involve electrical and plumbing work, and when they do, we make sure everything is up to code. Our mission: Plan and create the perfect space for you to cook, gather, and relax.

The average investment in a kitchen remodel starts at around $100,000 but each project is unique. While smaller spaces may be less, larger or more complicated projects can certainly exceed the average investment.

Mequon Wisconsin Master Bathroom Remodeling

“There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them.” – Sylvia Plath

The average American will spend approximately 64 hours in a bath or shower each year. Updating your bathroom means elevating the quality and comfort of those hours. As your partner in creating a new space, we are dedicated to your peace of mind, committed to improving your quality of life, and respectful of your financial commitment. 

Carmel Builders specializes in luxury bathrooms, which are typically master bathrooms. We’ll guide you through the many exciting possibilities for your new bathroom, starting with beautiful basics such as tiles, custom cabinetry, flooring and lighting. Beyond that, think about life’s little pleasures: luxury showers with multiple showerheads and body sprays; spacious soaking tubs, heated floors and towel racks, and lighting that can become practical or calming at the flick of a switch. We have experience with many high-end technology options that will create an amazing environment. Plumbing and electrical upgrades are usually required.

The age and size of the space will influence cost. The average investment in a luxury bathroom remodel starts at around $100,000 but each project is unique. While smaller spaces may be less, larger or more complicated projects can certainly exceed the average investment.

Your home our passion
We believe that design is the art of finding the solution to getting you what you want within a budget you are comfortable with. The old carpenter’s adage is, “measure twice, cut once.” This is no less true when it comes to designing your remodeling project. From preliminary plans and sketches to final construction drawings, we explore all options and opportunities with you. You decide when you are satisfied, and you make the decisions on what options are right for you. Our role in design is to help guide you toward realizing your dream with an investment that you are comfortable with.
Family Room remodel in River Hills Wisconsin

“A house is made with walls and beams. A home is made with love and dreams.” – Unknown

As most Wisconsin homes have basements, we believe that each house has hidden potential, and that potential is often hiding in a lower level. Basements are a blank canvas that we can use to provide the form and function you find missing in your home.  If you are imagining an entertainment room, a workout room, a guest suite, or some other way to make your home more enjoyable, this is often the place to find the possibilities.

We specialize in larger-scale, multi-use lower levels. Lower-level projects often involve cabinetry, lighting, and bathrooms. Many high-tech amenities are available. We’ll help you reimagine all the existing elements and find the best way to achieve the new living environment you want.

The size of the space is the biggest factor in pricing, followed by your specific vision for what goes into it. We advise clients to plan a minimum of $100,000.  While smaller spaces may be less, larger or more complicated projects can be in the hundreds of thousands.  But don’t worry…we help to establish early on in our discussions what the numbers will look like for your specific project.  


Custom Library and hallway additions in Mequon, WI

“The architect should strive continually to simplify; the ensemble of the rooms should then be carefully considered that comfort and utility may go hand in hand with beauty.” – Frank Lloyd Wright

Perhaps it’s more space you desire, or better access to the outdoors. Whatever your vision, Carmel Builders is dedicated to making your addition something you’ll enjoy while adding to the value of your home. 

To make the most of this exciting opportunity, we’ll start by understanding how you want to use your extra space, and we’ll assess your existing spaces as well. Many of our additions begin with a specific part of the house being reimagined, enlarged, or improved; the addition creates the room to get the job done. We’ll help you understand all the possibilities an addition can create, and we’ll work with you to find the right combination of efficiency, comfort, and aesthetics. Detail-oriented by nature, we will help design your addition, so it seamlessly fits the style and layout of your home. When complete, it will feel as if it’s been there all along.

As with most projects, the investment varies greatly by style of home, and your intended use. A good starting point for any home addition is $150,000 but the final investment will often exceed that based on the size and complexity of the project. But don’t worry…we help to establish early on in our discussions what the numbers will look like for your specific addition.

“I want my home to be that kind of place – a place of sustenance, a place of invitation, a place of welcome.” – Mary DeMuth

There’s so much to love about your home, your neighborhood, your community.  It’s where you want to stay for years to come but the existing space just isn’t working. Those little quirks, limitations, and inconveniences are starting to get old. With the right solutions, there’s a way to move on without moving. 

At Carmel Builders, we excel at finding multi-room solutions for a home like yours, whether it’s a single floor or a top-to-bottom renovation. We can change layouts, enlarge bathrooms, and find many other ways to make existing spaces more efficient and enjoyable. Your project might start with a single goal – a bigger kitchen, for instance – that involves reconfiguring the rooms touching it. This could open up many possibilities, such as a mud room, laundry room, and dining room remodel. If you’re dreaming of a workout room, a play area for children, or a workshop for your hobby, we’ll help you find solutions. Whatever your vision, the options increase when more rooms are in play. 

Pricing varies a great deal depending on the scope of the project and the size of your spaces. Multi-room remodel investments generally start at around $150,000 while whole house remodels average about $450,000.  While smaller spaces may be less, larger or more complicated projects can certainly exceed the average investment.
