Sometimes the best way to renovate is to add on. Better still – build UP. After successfully working with Divine designer Mariette Barsoum on their kitchen, staircase, and guest bathroom, these homeowners trusted Barsoum’s vision to build a new master suite ABOVE their existing kitchen.


Because this addition was once an attic, Barsoum’s design took advantage of the existing structure and allowed the homeowners to realize their dream master bathroom without breaking the bank. Today, what was once a dust-filled attic is now an enviable master bathroom.



The design+build team at Divine includes designers and a crew of master-craftsmen including carpenters, electricians, and plumbers who are on staff, not contractors. The “one-stop-shopping” approach allowed these homeowners to renovate their house with one expert designer overseeing the ENTIRE project from start to finish. They avoided shopping around for multiple contractors, having to wait for materials to be delivered, and coordinating everyone’s schedules – all of which would have taken months and months to complete. Designer Mariette Barsoum oversaw the whole project so that it was completed quickly and efficiently with minimal disruption for this busy family.
