OutThe Driveway signals freedom and sanctuary, it has been a long day at work and home is just so appealing. The vehicle gives a beep as it locks, the keys jingle to the front door and that familiar sound of home fills the air. Things are getting better until the kitchen comes into view…
Dishes from the night before are in the sink, leftover breakfast is still out, the cat knocked over all the spices lined along the stove and the dog found the trash bin…again.
The kitchen is the most used room in the house, why should it not fit your lifestyle? LA Home solutions work closely with Rev-A-Shelf to ensure every kitchen is fit for the lifestyle of the home. Just look at this amazing closet we completed! Our biggest challenge was getting the new cabinetry to match the already installed cabinets - we had a near perfect match!!
Children and pets can get into anything, which is a fear most parents have. Rev-A-Lock Cabinet Security uses a powerful magnet lock that can attach to wood, glass, metal, and particle board cabinets for a “guaranteed safeguard”. It is easy to use too, just hold the provided magnet key against the cabinet door to disengage the lock.
Using Rev-A-Shelf we can hide the garbage and recycling inside a cabinet drawer, put spice rack in a hidden area by the stove, or just help keep your cabinet organized.
There are so many options that can transform your space, at LA Home Solutions we can show you those options and find the right one for your home and lifestyle. Come visit us today, or book an in-house consultation.

Start to finish of this kitchen renovation! We replaced the laminate countertops for new beautiful granite counters, got rid of the outdated backsplash in exchange for a marble look wall tile. The ductwork was replaced and a new hood fan put in. And lastly a new sink and faucet to finish the kitchen!
We all know that Grey is the new Beige and Hardwood flooring colors have really been showcasing that. However in 2018 we will be seeing more brownish-greys. Wood flooring has added the grey and brown colors and undertones by creating floors that have a “driftwood” appearance. Gone is yellow toned oak shades and cherry tones. Homeowners are also trending towards a more matte or satin finished product, as an alternative to a gloss. Our new Hardwood Line by Laurentian Hardwood “Paisley Planks” is highly styled. Character marks are hand-filled and colour matched, the staining and finishing process enhances the texture, natural grain and character of the wood. This hardwood also has an ultra-matte finish providing a natural, and trendy look.
Another LA Home Solutions kitchen renovation in the works! In this home we are installing new vinyl flooring, we cut down the raised eating ledge and installed new laminate countertops and are working on painting the orange cabinets, white!
