Mclean is a town in Fairfax County, Virginia, and is best known for its proximity to Tysons Corner, Virginia. Great shopping and dining and the proximity to Washington DC have created a rich history of prominent Washington business and politicians making this area their home. Mclean also boasts some of the largest lots and homes in the Washington DC Metro area. The community of Mclean is full of busy professionals with lots of family activities. Creating organized and functional homes are at the top of these homeowners’ minds.

Neighboring towns of Vienna and Great Falls share in the beautiful landscape and proximity to great dining, shopping, and recreational activity. During the building boom of the late ’90s and early 2000s, homes in this area became larger while the lots got smaller. These newer homes have larger kitchens and bathrooms. Unfortunately, the finishes used weren’t always as classic and timeless. Builders repeated the same cabinets, tile, and lighting in every home, leaving interiors without any character or personality. As a family-owned business, Murphys Design understands the need to design our homes around our personal preferences. We use our experience and work with you to add your personal touches and increase property values.

Opening up floor plan was a priority in this Custom Build’s design plan. Built-in cabinetry transitions seamlessly from the kitchen to eating space and into the large family space.
Taking this bathroom floorplan from awful to award-winning meant we had to get rid of all the builder basic tile and fixtures. Inspired by the owners’ love of Historic retreats we named this our Biltmore Bathroom Project and made it uniquely theirs.

Whole House Remodeling and Additions

How long will planning a kitchen remodel take?

Everyone wants their new kitchen space yesterday, and that’s wonderful news! Planning a large scale kitchen remodel will take 4-8weeks, plus you will need to allow 4-6 weeks for the materials to arrive. Once building begins it can take anywhere from 5-10 weeks depending on your scope of work. All in all, a good estimate is allowing 4-6 months from concept to completion.

Do you do the construction work?

We are a Virginia Class A licensed builder.  John and his team handles the construction with the help of our project managing for the last 13 years.

Do you do free estimates?

Our Free phone consultation includes an estimate range for your kitchen or bathroom remodeling based on your square footage and photos. If that and our process sounds reasonable then we schedule an In home consultation so we can establish a budget around finding the best solutions for the areas of your concern.
