Lives evolve and change. When your space needs to grow with you, bring your vision to Aleto and see what it looks like through our eyes. We have the skill, imagination and passion—all we need is your vision to bring it all together into spectacular reality.
A LUXURIOUS COMPLETE RENOVATION
An area architect called Aleto for a whole-house renovation of his vintage 1915 converted two-family home. We sourced custom cabinetry throughout from Amish craftsmen in rural Missouri. New custom staircases were built and the woodwork was refinished or custom matched original woodwork through the house. Of the many updates and fine finishes Aleto brought to this unique project, we are particularly proud of the custom master shower, known as “the carwash” due to the number and size of its sprayers.
UPGRADED BATH FOR AN UPSIZING FAMILY
A couple in Chesterfield was expecting twins and needed to update two and a half bathrooms that were vintage 1980s style. We got the call in the third trimester and quickly designed and delivered a trio of modern bathrooms with top-shelf finishes that are ready for anything twin toddlers can throw their way.
A MODERN KITCHEN FOR A CLASSIC HOME
A Ladue family had seen enough of their 1970s kitchen that never seemed to fit in their classic and stately colonial home. Without changing the footprint or affecting the rest of the lovely home, Aleto delivered on the owner’s vision of a sleek, modern, super-functional kitchen that the grand house had always deserved.
AN INVITING SUNROOM – WITH SOMETHING EXTRA
An addition that connected a South Country home’s kitchen and pool area, this sunroom was a custom design that conformed to the specific space available, maximizing windows and natural light throughout. It also involved moving a load-bearing wall, but that’s all in a day’s work for Aleto. In a thoughtful touch, Aleto also pulled the flooring all the way through the kitchen, tying the entire space together in a subtle but compelling way. We completed the project while the family was on vacation, so they came home from one wonderful experience only to walk into another.
THE FINISHING TOUCHES TO AN ALREADY GREAT ROOM
An elaborate home theater in an Imperial home’s basement was already an inviting place where one could get lost in a great movie or important game, but it wasn’t quite complete. The owner asked Aleto to add the finishing touches with a bathroom and gun safe, and some sophisticated finishes in the form of polished concrete floors and a charming tin ceiling. The centerpiece of the project is a stately brick archway connecting two rooms, improving both flow and style.
SOUTH COUNTY BATHROOMS
Aleto resorted to origami to bring this two-bathroom renovation vision to life. To capture the client’s proposed vision, we constructed various cardboard mockups to show the lines, angles and proportions of the design. Soon, high-end granite and other superior finishes had taken the place of the homeowner’s vintage 1970s bathrooms.
BIG CHANGES FOR A SMALL KITCHEN
In Webster Groves, a small floor plan couldn’t hold back some big remodeling ideas. We gave the kitchen a light, open feel and added a small island to complement the available counter space and improve the room’s utility as well as its appearance. A limited budget couldn’t hold back Aleto’s gift for style, either. We helped the owner choose a beautiful but cost-effective vinyl floor that looks like something much more expensive.
TEARING DOWN WALLS TO TRANSFORM A SPACE
Of course, city bungalows come with bungalow floor plans—and they don’t always offer an obvious way to reinvent a space for modern living. Fortunately for this particular kitchen, Aleto loves to look past the obvious. This luxurious kitchen was made possible by the removal of walls between it and a bedroom and the dining room, creating an open space that seems impossible when you look at the house from the outside. The open-living concept extends to the new double doors leading to the back deck, adding the great outdoors to this homeowner’s new great indoors.
ENJOYING THE OUTDOORS HAS NEVER BEEN SO EASY

A Tower Grove couple looking for a way to entertain guests outside called Aleto to design and build a spectacular second floor deck and covered patio that overlooks their beautiful landscaping.

AN UPGRADE TO INDOOR/OUTDOOR LIVING

A client came to Aleto wanting to enjoy her backyard rain or shine. We took her vision for extending her living space into her backyard and created the perfect sunroom off her kitchen that leads to her new deck.
