ABOUT THE PROJECT
The main floor of this charming Midcentury Modern-style home underwent a stunning transformation! With a deep appreciation for nature and natural elements, the homeowners wanted their home to feel warm and cozy while embracing a minimalist design aesthetic and monochromatic finishes.
The original kitchen underwent a complete overhaul, making way for an updated Scandinavian inspired aesthetic. The original hardwood floors were kept intact. The dining room was opened up by removing a part height wall at the staircase and a unique metal railing was installed.
While preserving the character of the original cinderblock fireplace, we added a drywall bump-out to accommodate a wall-mounted TV. The hearth was reconstructed, and we added a MDF slat wall feature on either side with walnut floating shelves for their plants to soak up the sunlight.
Recognizing the need for a more functional layout, we worked with the homeowners to reimagine the bathroom layouts. The small 2-piece ensuite was enlarged to allow for a double vanity and walk-in shower. The former main bathroom was transformed into a stylish 2-piece powder room for visiting guests.
Additional features of this renovation include a bench at the front entry with a custom coat rod, chevron floor tiles, faux wood beams in the living room area, unique light fixtures, and pops of green (Benjamin Moore: backwoods) accent colours used throughout the home.
