BAYSHORE CONDO RENOVATION
Renovation Done Right.
This beautiful Coal Harbour multi level condo had the bathrooms located on the top two floors, which meant if you were on the main floor where the kitchen and living rooms were located, you had to run up the stairs to use the facilities. We ended up moving the kitchen further towards the living room and, in doing so, added a powder room and a pantry behind. We also updated all the flooring and both bathrooms.
We decreased the size of the living room to fit the bathroom downstairs, but as you can see it is still a decent size. The flooring is a beautiful wide plank modern engineered hardwood by Ethical Flooring.
The kitchen was redesigned after the decision was made to add a powder room behind it. We cored holes down to the parkade below to tie in all the plumbing and moved the sink into the island which makes for great entertaining. We were able to keep some of the existing appliances which were really nice but added a new cooktop sink and faucet. The white countertops provided by Fir Stone match the new tile installed in the entry which offer a Carrera style look at an affordable price.
The guest bedroom offered a great cabinet system with a Murphy bed but had a yellowish oak look to it. Instead of replacing it, we had Cabinet Painting Vancouver come in and spray it white which not only made it look brand new but really brightened up the room.
We installed the double vanity in high gloss white from Ikea and added a quartz countertop with 3 piece faucets by Kohler to give it a high end look at an affordable price. One of the most simple and easiest things to do to add accent lighting, is to mount the mirror on plywood 3/4″ off the wall and add led strip lighting attached to the side of the plywood which is set on either a motion sensor or switch. At night when all the lights are off this is a nice feature to not blind you and makes for very relaxing baths if you want to zen out.
We kept the original stone around the fireplace in tact and installed the engineer hardwood tightly around it. The vents on the actual fireplace unit were a brass colour and to make it more modern we just sprayed them out black, which was a very cheap and easy way to update the fireplace area.
