This whole home renovation and second storey addition took a spec-built house from generic and dated to modern and perfectly customized for the homeowners. We took the existing structure and stripped it to the bare studs to do a complete renovation, including repurposing the kitchen, rejigging the master bathroom and walk-in closet and transforming the basement into a gym, media room and wine room.

Designing an Open Concept Kitchen and Living Room
In order to convert an old-style mid-century house into a modernized mid-century home, we removed a major support wall to create a huge open concept stretching from the kitchen to the living room.
We updated the kitchen layout to improve functionality and painted the cabinetry. New floors were installed throughout the main floor. Our design focused on bright and light colours, capitalizing on the huge floor-to-ceiling windows allowing for lots of natural light.
Building a New Master Bedroom
As part of the whole home renovation, we redid the layout of the walk-in closet and ensuite master bathroom. The bathroom reconfiguration allowed us to add a glass-walled shower and deep soaker tub to create a spa-like oasis for the homeowners. We installed new flooring throughout the upstairs and updated the bedrooms, continuing our light and bright design.
Updating the Exterior
No whole home renovation would be complete without refreshing the exterior to ensure it matches the addition. We took the modern concepts from the interior design and applied them to the exterior of the home as well.
By updating the outside, we were able to keep the original building structure but give it a more modern look and feel. This was accomplished through light colours, including painting the front door and garage door a refreshing blue, and switching the second-floor patio railings from wood to glass. This completed the transformation, taking an older home from dated to modern.
