We loved working on this full main floor renovation!
We installed new luxury vinyl plank throughout the open areas, and added new carpet into the bedrooms. The original space had oak cabinetry with hardwood floors and Linoleum in the bathrooms. The space felt dated to the owners.
The kitchen lights were on a track, which did not provide enough light in the evenings, so they were removed and updated with pot lights and some beautiful drop pendants over the island. The oak cabinetry was painted over in a matte white, and a beautiful marble inspired laminate counter top was added to creating the look of luxury without the price tag. This was all complimented with a light gray colour on the walls.
Oak was originally used in cabinetry because it repelled meal-worms, but it was also a luxury wood, so many have the opinion that you should not – on pain of death - paint over oak as it is still such a valuable wood. Though financially it can be more affordable to paint over them, than replace the whole kitchen - the decision is yours.
Tavertine Stone was used on the fireplace to add a compliment with the new furniture. We just cannot get enough of this beautiful space.
We also had the chance to renovate the ensuite with a new soaker tub and shower tile. We used a darker grey tile with a fun 2”x2” tile accent to enhance the small space, and to line the bathroom double sink.
The clients were a joy to work with, and we are all so happy with how the space turned out - what a difference between the before and afters. Thank you for the opportunity to help you design your space.
