Downtown loft remodel with 16-foot kitchen island

Before and after photos of downtown Des Moines loft remodeled by Silent Rivers including 16 foot kitchen island with natural tree stump support, featured on 2016 Tour of Remodeled Homes

A tree stump incorporated into a 16-foot stainless steel island is just one unique feature of this loft. We combined industrial elements like raw steel, concrete and brick with Baltic birch and the silver maple tree stump to give our young loftowners a modern but richly inviting home. Our design provided definition between the sleeping and living space, and created a gathering space without a formal dining area — an extra-large island!

1980s master and hallway bathroom remodels

Before and after images of a 1980s bathroom remodeled by Silent Rivers Des Moines, featured on 2016 Tour of Remodeled Homes

Built 35 years ago by the homeowner’s father, this family home needed modernizing and added functionality. We worked with the existing space in the master bathroom to accommodate double sinks, a large walk-in shower and better connection to the master closet. The hallway bathroom mirrors the master’s color palette. The soft textures, warm colors and sophisticated finishes were chosen for a current and timeless look.

Historic preservation and sustainability project in Sherman Hill to become women’s wellness center with 2nd floor residential condo

This historical renovation of an abandoned grocery store in the Sherman Hill District is also an example of sustainable design and build. A second floor residence reflects a conversion of three small apartments into one beautiful, single-family dwelling with three bedrooms and baths. We kept the original oak hardwood and arches, then added high-end finishes, extra-large deck and gorgeous full kitchen.
