Entire Homes

Whether an apartment, brownstone, or standalone house, Sweeten contractors can take any space and make it uniquely your own. Sandra and Nelson wanted to update their Brooklyn home to fit their new needs. Their kids were grown, so they wanted to focus on the house. They wanted a more convenient living space. With the help of their contractor, they remodeled the kitchen, dining, and living room. Plus, they turned a small office into a beautiful sunroom. 

Sweeten also transforms apartments for open-concept living or more personal space with walls or partitions. Sweeten homeowners Mitzie and Jenifer (below). created a seamless flow from one living space to another.

Kitchens & Baths

Kitchens and baths are the sweet spots for our contractors. No matter the square footage, each space comes with its own unique set of requirements. Bathrooms and kitchens can be rip-and-replace projects, where the floor plan is not altered or they can be of a larger scope. These types of projects can entail reworking/upgrading electrical and plumbing like was necessary for two smaller baths combined as one (below) or Carol and Jon’s Sweeten kitchen renovation (above).  For these changes, an experienced contractor will call in the right pros to help.

Living Spaces

Kitchens and baths are the most popular spaces to renovate, but don’t forget about the rest of the home! From functional closets, bedrooms, and home offices to extra living space in the basement, the spaces that get you through the day can change the way you live in your home.

Garage Conversions / ADUs

Commonly known as ADUs (accessory dwelling units), these converted spaces have become more and more popular. They are a great way to add valuable square footage to your home and create additional, functional spaces. Sweeten contractors converted Michelle’s garage (above) and turned Jaime’s garage into a studio office (below). Each includes bathrooms and kitchenettes.

Exteriors and Additions

When you have a big project, such as updating the exterior of your home or putting on an addition, having the right renovation team is key. Alicia’s Sweeten contractor added 1,000 square feet to the back of her house (above). Rosaire turned her garage into a living room with a pantry (below).

Molding and Built-ins

Sometimes a room needs a small decorative touch such as trim and millwork. Built-ins are an investment that offers a finished look and functional storage as in Laura and Walter’s den (above). Trim and molding also set a polished look for every room. A ’60s house receives elegant millwork in the Sweeten renovation below.
