Small Kitchen and Bath Remodel: Samoset at Winnipesaukee

If you are familiar with Gilford and the Lakes Region, chances are you’ve been to the Samoset Condos at Lake Winnipesaukee. The Lighthouse Contracting team has spent several months of 2021 at Samoset working on small kitchen remodels and bath remodels.

Our latest remodel was a 1274 square foot condo. The homeowner’s goals were the following:

  1. Taller vanity in the half bath with new light fixtures
  2. Update interior doors to insulated shaker style.
  3. Install custom corner double sink in the kitchen with insta-hot water system.
  4. Replace the breakfast bar.
  5. Update kitchen cabinets and countertops.
  6. Replace the stairs and flooring in kitchen and half bath with engineered hickory hardwood.

Half Bath Remodel

Small design updates to a half bath can make a world of difference. Consider this recent powder room makeover. It had all the necessary basics but lacked in character and design. Since the homeowners were updating the kitchen, it was the perfect time to give the half bath some love.

Small Kitchen Remodel

A small kitchen should be functional and have the appliances and work areas you need to prepare meals. This Samoset kitchen was dimly lit, lacked storage space and proper kitchen organization.
