Additions & Remodels

Outgrowing your home, but you don’t want to move?

Whiteley & Whiteley will come to your home and discuss options for adding a room or expanding an existing space. We will discuss your specific needs and the various options to achieve your goals. Often, we can simply reconfigure an existing space to make it more efficient. Once we have a basic concept, Whiteley & Whiteley will develop a complete set of plans and specifications to turn your ideas into reality.

Seamless Design & Construction

Our goal is to create a seamless addition that will maintain the look, feel and flow of your existing home while providing more useable space; everyone will think the addition was part of the original construction.

Sarasota Circle

The project required an extensive renovation of the existing family room, kitchen, two guest baths, powder bath and laundry, as well as the remodel the master bath.

Family Room

Originally the family room had block paneling stained in golden oak that was vogue 30 years ago. We removed the paneling and replaced it with sheetrock. The cabinets were removed and replaced with floating glass shelves, and the cabinets were removed and replaced with newly designed painted custom cabinets. The fireplace face and hearth were updated with porcelain tile, and a repurposed mantel.


The existing kitchen was a small galley style with dated Corian countertops, the original appliances and a dated tile backsplash. In order to enlarge the existing footprint some of the cabinets were removed, which allowed for the expansion of the kitchen. We cut down the existing bar and enlarged the area to create a new breakfast bar. New upper cabinets and drawers were custom built and added to the existing kitchen increasing storage and work space. The original cabinets that were kept in place were updated with new doors, and drawers fronts. The ceiling in the kitchen are 10 ft., so on the interior wall we added another level of cabinets creating more storage. Recessed lighting was added to the kitchen and pendant lights were added to the area over the new breakfast bar.

Master Bath

The master bath was completely gutted and redesigned to accommodate a new freestanding tub, and a new walk-in shower and new cabinetry. New porcelain tile was installed in a brick lay design in the shower, and on the floor and wall surrounding the new tub. The original mirrors were removed and redesigned into three mirrors, then frames were added.

Powder Bath

The powder bath was completely renovated and updated with a new custom designed cabinet, a vessel sink and faucet.

Guest Baths

The two guest baths were renovated and updated with new tile tub surrounds, granite countertops, new plumbing fixtures and mirrors.

Walden Estates Remodel

Master Bath

The project required significant demolition of the Master Bath.My clients requested that I update the existing vanity by painting it white and installing new hardware. The existing garden tub was removed along with the floor tile and existing shower. Removal of the garden tub made it possible to create a larger walk-in shower, with multiple shower heads. A porcelain brick style tile floor was installed on the bath floor and then cut into 3 inch pieces in the dry area and wet area of the shower floor. A new granite countertop was installed on the vanity. The existing mirror was removed, so it could be recut and installed as a framed mirror.

Powder Bath

The client requested that the powder bath walls be painted a dark navy, and the existing vanity be painted white. The same porcelain brick style tile was installed on the floor. A granite remnant was installed on the existing vanity, as well as a new undermount lavatory and chrome faucet. A new light fixture, and a new framed mirror was installed.

The Escondido Open Concept Remodel

To achieve the open concept kitchen, we had to remove walls, relocate appliances, and move an existing exterior wall 3 feet. My client requested that everything in the kitchen be replaced.

We were able to carefully remove the old cabinets, appliances and granite, which were donated to a family in need. It was also requested that I assist in choosing the furniture, artwork, area rugs, and chotskies. This concept could not have been achieved without the thoughtful and talented family of artisans that work with me.

The before and after photos of kitchen, living room, dining room and morning room illustrate the dramatic changes.

Brookhaven Attic Transformation

The original attic was designed and built to structurally support this conversion. We were able to embrace the original roof lines, which gave each room an interesting look, as well as saved many thousands of dollars.

Dwayne Neal, owner of Compass Security & Theater was instrumental in assisting in the design of the theater room so that the technical aspects were addressed and the finished project was truly functional.
