ALBERTA CRAFTSMAN REMODEL
FULL REMODEL AND FURNISHING
This project started out as a living room remodel and over a year and half we slowly remodeled each space including an extensive basement remodel. Upstairs, we transformed the kitchen by knocking down the pantry which divided the kitchen and introduced another window to flood the kitchen with light. We removed the upper kitchen cabinets, which were replaced with floating walnut shelves beneath a fully tiled wall. A new peninsula with storage and bar seating was added and topped with a marble patterned quartz. To add pantry storage, we designed a custom hutch that adds character and functionality to the space.
The unfinished basement was a daunting design challenge with bare concrete walls and low ceilings. The space planning included adding a full bath, laundry facility, lots of storage and a flex-use space. A large concrete abutment wall was our biggest obstacle, which we chose to turn into a lofted daybed area. We kept the palette light and bright and installed luxury vinyl plank flooring to match the original hardwood floors in the rest of the house. We designed a variety of custom cabinetry, including concealed laundry cabinets, vertical clothing storage with a fold-down ironing board and deep storage cabinets for large items. Mirrors were utilized to reflect light in the basement and make the space appear larger.
