A local couple who owned a dated rental property came with plans to do a thorough refresh seeking a functional, efficient & aesthetically appealing place to entertain family and friends and enjoy their retirement.
Walls were removed between the kitchen and dining room resulting in an open concept floor plan. The roofline off the back of the house was extended, vaulted, four skylights were added over a composite deck and a large black sliding door installed. These structural upgrades meant that light could travel from outside to inside and throughout the home, creating a more cohesive place for their growing family to congregate.
A cool, modern colour palette of greys and whites are boldly highlighted by black fixtures in the bathrooms, kitchen and living areas. The custom millwork package features form in slim shaker style doors and functionality through a purposeful re-organization.
Weathered carpet and outdated linoleum was replaced with locally harvested and sustainably made engineered hardwood flooring, not only reducing time and energy spent on maintenance and cleaning, but providing a marked boost to aesthetics.
The master ensuite features a curb less shower with a half glass enclosure allowing the couple to age in comfort keeping accessibility at the forefront. Heated floors, floor to ceiling storage and a large mirror continue the theme of functionality coupled with class.
The final piece to the puzzle and a priority for the couple was increased efficiency. The existing hot water tank was replaced with on demand hot water, the aging furnace and two existing fireplaces were replaced with high efficiency appliances. Relocation of these appliances meant there was space to add a front entrance closet.
A beautiful, efficient and functional home for grandparents to share with their children and grandchildren!
