2018 Class of Big 50

Remodeling Magazine recognizes Nip Tuck in class of 2018 Big 50

Nip Tuck Remodeling has been selected by REMODELING magazine to join the REMODELING Big50. Each year since 1986, the REMODELING Big50 inducts 50 remodeling companies that have set exceptionally high standards for professionalism and integrity through exemplary business practices, craftsmanship, and impact in their community or the industry at large.

“To get a sense of how unique this status is, consider there are roughly 98,000 remodeling firms in America with paid staff,” noted Craig Webb, REMODELING’s Editor-in-Chief. “Since 1986, we have selected only about 1,600 firms. That’s just 1.6% of all the remodeling businesses in the country today.”

Serenity In Blue

2018 Award Winner - People's Choice Award

NKBA Puget Sound

This style resistant master bathroom dreamed of becoming the spa it was meant to be.  Fixtures remained in their same locations but got a HUGE upgrade in design and function. The step was removed to allow for better flow and access to the now freestanding tub.   This tub now has a lovely view of the large wavy tiled shower or the custom designed display niche with LED backlit panels that not only brighten the area but allow for display.  With the makeup area and calm blue mosaic tiles, this bathroom rivals any spa!

A Twist on a Classic Look

2018 Award Winner - 1st Place Large Bathroom

NKBA Puget Sound Chapter

Once a Street of Dreams home, this master bathroom was cloaked in granite, mirror, and carpet. It was ready for an update.

Since this shower can be seen from the hall, the client wanted to make a statement and was driven to simplify the rest to get it! This shower is a focal point with the dramatic patterned tile, double shower heads and custom his/her niches. To fit the budget the cabinetry was upcycled with taller toekicks, added open shelving, and a fresh coat of paint. For further interest, we added a simple, yet elegant board-and-batten detail around the tub and trimmed each mirror.

Remodeling Magazine Annual Top 550

Nip Tuck Remodeling rank's #216 on this years 550 list!

The Remodeling 550, an annual feature since 2009, profiles the nation’s biggest full-service remodelers, replacement contractors, insurance restoration firms, and franchise operations.

Hard work certainly has paid off for this year’s Remodeling 550. The top 300 full-service remodelers earned 8% more in revenue in 2017 than they did in 2016. The top 150 replacement contracting firms earned a whopping 41% more last year than in 2016.

Not only are these firms bumping up their revenues, but they’re also actively creating better places to work. One way they’re doing that is by improving benefits: In 2018, more companies offer the 13 benefits we list in our survey than did in 2017. While benefits aren’t the only factors contributing to employee satisfaction at a company, benefit packages are a good indicator of how healthy the companies themselves are: more money, more benefits.

Something Old, Something New Again

2018 REX Award Winner Kitchen Excellence Less than $50,000

Awarded by Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish County

We were called in to give a very simple but impactful update to this Bothell, WA home. The existing kitchen was dark and the range hood was a big trouble spot.  Overall, the layout of the kitchen was good, but the aesthetic was dated and not in line with our young client’s décor preference.

We painted all the kitchen cabinets in place with Benjamine Moore, refinished the existing hardwoods with a rich, dark stain and replaced countertops with an updated white quartz & finished it off with subway tile.

We made some minor modifications to the space to update it such as deleting the old built in desk , we dismantled the existing range hood, shortened it up by about 8 inches and dressed it up with a new flat front door & some rift oak stained to match the hardwood floor. The fluted legs on the island got wrapped for a clean, modern look and we added some new pendants to the island.

Sandpoint Waterfront Addition

2017 REX Award Winner - Major Remodel Partial House/Addition over $250,000
Awarded by the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties

Renovating a waterfront house is all about enhancing lifestyle and the views, and this home is a perfect example of both.  Built in 1937 and last renovated in 2004, the existing kitchen was tucked away in the center of the house with it's only window above the sink looking out at the neighbor's home on the side of the house. Today, as we walk up to the entrance and through the front door, we are welcomed by warmth, well-appointed spaces, and attention to detail in every nook and cranny.

 

Walk-In Pantry - Sand Point Waterfront Addition

2017 Chrysalis Award Winner - Other Spaces
National Award

Our goal was to honor this 1937 home with updated finishes while keeping as many original details as possible, both inside and out.  In this addition, we reconfigured the main floor, relocated the original kitchen into an addition, and created a walk-in pantry, ultimately creating a space worthy of entertaining.

Sandpoint Waterfront Addition - Kitchen Remodel

2017 - NKBA - Small / Medium Kitchen - 2nd Place
Awarded by the National Kitchen & Bath Association - Puget Sound Chapter

Waterfront living is all about the view, and this home had a kitchen tucked away in the middle of the house and the layout was just not working for our client.  They wanted to maximize the view and have a space that truly worked for them.
Most of the main floor of this home was down to studs and every space was customized to fit our client's needs. The architecture of the home is originally from the 30s, so maintaining the feel of the house while bringing it up to date was a high priority.

High Rise With A View - Kitchen Remodel

2016 NKBA - Small / Medium Kitchen - 2nd Place
Awarded by the National Kitchen & Bath Association - Puget Sound Chapter

The view is fantastic from this condo, and improving it was at the top of the list for our team. The new kitchen has two tones of cabinets with a horizontal grain.  The upper cabinets are purposely devoid of hardware, both as a design element using tip on hardware and as a solution to minimize the amount of metal used for hardwareThe Liebherr refrigerator blends perfectly into the pantry situated next to it, and as you look at the ceiling toward the exit to the hall, the designer found a creative way to take our last piece of dropped ceiling (which housed the venting for the range) in an artful swoosh.

Kitchen Remodel - People's Choice Award

2015 REX Awards - People Choice Award
Awarded by the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties

On the night of the awards banquet, this West Seattle Urban Entertainment Kitchen was voted by our peers as their favorite project for 2015.

 

Urban Entertainment Kitchen Remodel

2015 REX Award Winner - Kitchen Excellence less than $40,000
Awarded by the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties

By removing a large pantry and utilizing the entire kitchen and eating space, we tripled the size of this kitchen from 64 square feet to almost 200 square feet. The combination of white painted cabinetry and black stone countertops give a simple yet classic update, while the stone and glass mosaic backsplash add interest and are perfectly suited for this young urban couple. The project totally transformed this wonderful West Seattle home into a place that allowed the couple to do what they enjoyed most: preparing healthy meals together and spending time entertaining friends and family.

Modern Oasis - Master Bathroom Remodel

2015 REX Award Winner - Bath Excellence $30,000 - $50,000
Awarded by the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties

This project started with a minimal budget to replace the shower, only to discover that what the client really wanted was to explore the design possibilities of the space and create a luxurious spa-like bathroom.  Removing the partition wall to the shower room, as well as deleting the soaking tub, allowed us to fully utilize the space for a much more spacious experience.  Amenities such as under-cabinet lighting and a heated floor that runs into the shower create ambience and comfort.  The wall-mounted vanities with built-up stone sinks and the 3D stone feature wall bring in nature and complete the spa feel we sought to create.

Tiny Condo Kitchen Remodel

2012 REX Award Winner - Kitchen Excellence under $25,000
Awarded by the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties

This was one of the very first kitchens by Nip Tuck Remodeling!  This compact kitchen now embodies the personality and décor of our young, urban clients.  It has been thoughtfully put together to maximize the space and create a feeling of expansiveness.  Though options for modifications were limited in this condominium, simple changes, such as creating a level pass-through from the kitchen to the dining room and choosing a slide in range with a flush mounted top, increased available work area and allow the space to feel much larger than it actually is.  The combination of the black quartz, glass tile splash, and track lighting lend a classic, modern appeal to this Seattle condo.
