Despite COVID 2019, we were actually able to do the Renomark Reno Tour this year. Virtually!!

Pre-renovations the home lacked natural light, did not take advantage of river views, had dangerous stairs at the entry, lacked closet space, had awkward living spaces with an outdated non-functional kitchen, was without an entrance from the garage, and had outdated bathrooms plus a shower in the walk-in closet. Furthermore, the owners were frustrated they could not entertain due to awkward spaces and being isolated in the kitchen.
This design is so successful because it solves the owner’s problems: Relocating stair location with comfortable steps. Removing the interior kitchen wall opens up the entire living space. Introducing a rear wall of glass that optimizes river views plus introduces an abundance of natural light. The kitchen with an adjacent homework area provide usable space for the entire family and solves being isolated when entertaining. A garage entry mudroom allows easy access from the garage. The front entrance features a walk-in closet. An added bonus is the laundry on the main level. No shower in the walk-in closet!
The contemporary kitchen features cherry and high gloss white cabinets, cherry used for cohesiveness by tying in the existing wood ceiling. Quartz counters and quartz backsplash reflect natural light.
24” x 24” tile throughout the entry, kitchen dining, mudroom has in-floor hydronic heating for the ultimate in comfort (Geothermal heat/cooling source). The sunken living room has cherry flooring tying in the kitchen and existing wood features. Contemporary furniture, funky ceiling fans, and light fixtures complete the space.
The bathrooms have floating vanities, walk-in showers with 24” x 48” tiger stripe tiled walls with the ensuite featuring a standalone soaker tub – perfect for a spa retreat!
Imagine walking into this home, greeted with the sensation of peace and tranquility – an abundance of natural light, soothing colours, and amazing river views. Priceless!
