Chagrin River Company showed a home we remodeled in Cleveland Heights as part of the annual Greater Cleveland Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) Remodeled Homes Tour. Not all of our friends could make it to the tour to see the house in person, so we wanted to give you a close-up look at the project, in case you missed it.

The homeowners have lived in this home in Cleveland Heights for 13 years and had a specific goal in mind. They wanted to open up the first floor living space and kitchen, so the six family members could enjoy being together without being crowded. We knew we could help and set out to make sure they could envision what the finished rooms would look like when the remodel was completed.

This was a large project with both indoor and outdoor upgrades. A new addition holds a large, comfortable family room where everyone can relax. We upgraded the kitchen and remodeled the first-floor bathroom. A mudroom that works for a family of six was added to provide a drop zone for coats, shoes and backpacks.

We opened the floor plan so that there is now a spacious feel through the first floor. The bright and roomy remodeled kitchen has sightlines through to the family room addition and plenty of elbow room for food prep. A new informal eating area is the perfect place for grabbing a snack and there’s even a command center spot for keeping track of the family’s activity schedules in a central location.

The family room addition is wide open and provides the result the homeowners were looking for: plenty of room for the family to spread out and relax together. The fact that it is open to the kitchen really increases the enjoyment and functionality of the space. And the large windows and easy access to the backyard and new patio make the room feel even larger.

An upgraded exterior is the extra bonus of this remodel. More than just a spot for al fresco dining, the new patio is complete with a hot tub, firepit, covered seating area and even a television.

Gaining 1,000 feet of outdoor living space is a welcome, season-spanning feature that lets the family take maximum advantage of the backyard whether the days are warm and sunny or less than perfect.


We’re proud of the results, and this busy Cleveland Heights family is very pleased that we were able to give them the extra room they needed and the beautiful, open feel they wanted. The homeowners called Chagrin River Company “hardworking, trustworthy, and responsive.”
