Residents living in Fairfax, Virginia, enjoy the best of Northern Virginia. Great restaurants, community events, medical facilities, parks, and recreation facilities abound. And, since Fairfax is only about 10 miles from DC, you can’t beat the commute. If you want a small-town feel in a large suburban area, Fairfax is the place for you.

With all these great benefits, home costs in this area can be high, and the competition is fierce when looking for properties with updated kitchens, bathrooms, and living areas.

Whole House Remodeling and Additions

A lot of homes are ready to be updated in Fairfax, Virginia. With the average age of a home at 40 years old and some aging over 75 years, that’s a lot of floor plans that need to be updated. Architecture and Design have changed over the last 75 years so it’s not unusual to be tearing down walls, adding windows and doors and creating new media rooms, great rooms, and kitchens that become the gathering spaces you want from your home today.

Murphy’s Design LLC understands that choosing to embark on a whole house remodel and redesigning your floor plan feels overwhelming. We like to call our Redesign Service the “this century modern” blueprint. It works for all ages and styles because we focus on the updates that turn dated into classic and timeless.

At Murphy’s Design, make the entire process easier for you by breaking it down into simple steps. These steps can bring your home into this century.

Kitchen Remodeling

When starting your remodeling journey, your kitchen is often the first place you consider. The project planning process at Murphy’s Design combines your family’s wants and needs, delivering the kitchen of your dreams. First, we focus on your house and family as a whole. Designing your kitchen is fun for the whole family.   When the project is finished, you get to enjoy a fresh, updated, and functional working space that the entire family wants to use together.

Multigenerational living becomes much more comfortable when the heart of the home supports the ages of all family members. Young families, aging in place, empty nesters, and those with returning young adults all live in this community.

Bathroom Remodeling

Bathrooms have come a long way. Better materials and expert installation have built Murphy’s Design reputation as bathroom remodeling experts. Our design team combines full-service design and selection services. With updated fixtures and finishes, your bathroom can make life more beautiful and enjoyable. Let us help you bring your bathroom one of the highlights in your home.

This 5x8 bathroom went from Basement Basic to Guest-Ready in 3 weeks' time. A small bathroom doesn’t have to be expensive or boring.
A 75 sq ft addition utilizing a section of exterior deck was transforming! Kathy wanted to get rid of her small closed off 1960’s footprint and turn it into a window-filled room with cozy banquette seating so she could enjoy her beautiful backyard from inside.

Cindy is an excellent designer. Her ideas and selections are top notch. She was very willing to work with me, both in reassuring me when I had doubts and making changes if I desired. Her husband and contractor, John, does excellent work, paying great attention to detail.

How much does it cost to remodel a bathroom in Fairfax?

When you schedule your phone consultation we can easily communicate this valuable information before you spend too much time out of your busy schedule. Keep in mind quality construction is at the forefront of what we do, and we make sure the bones of the room reflect the best practices of today so our costs reflect that level of service and quality.
