Carmel Renovation

The clients for this remodel in Carmel, Indiana were a married couple with three children who had lived in multiple cities during the husband’s career as a professional athlete. They hired CIRCLE for renovations of their kitchen, great room, master bathroom, and playroom to match their modern tastes.

The challenge was to design a kitchen and den that was modern but comfortable for the family, and a bathroom that replicated the spa-like ambience of a high-end resort. The space above the garage, with its unusual floor plan and structure, needed to be transformed from a toddlers’ playroom into a hip, tween-friendly lounge.

The kitchen features dark wood flooring and ebony-stained, cherry cabinets to contrast the white quartz countertop and glass tile backsplash, with the family room showcasing a tiled fireplace and cantilevered hearth as a focal point. We created a spa-like experience in the bathroom using clean lines, multiple textures in tile, and several levels of lighting, accenting the formerly least used amenity – the bathtub.

The former playroom is now a hip, vibrant space with separate zones to accommodate each of child’s hobbies: reading, crafting, and playing video games. This space highlights stylish light fixtures, dark flooring, colorful art and furniture, and a statement wall treatment.


“CIRCLE Design Studio understood what I was trying to describe and what I had envisioned in my head. They even brought lots of ideas that I would never have thought of. They held my hand through the entire process and were readily accessible. I am extremely happy with the way my master bathroom and kitchen turned out.”
