RIVERSIDE DRIVE 1
Renovation Done Right.
RIVERSIDE DRIVE 1
The Riverside house had a great layout with vaulted ceilings, which was really nice as the space felt so big and open. We removed some walls and moved the kitchen to really expand the space to make it the perfect entertaining spot. With a large private deck and speakers throughout, we really wanted to give it all the bells and whistles for the lucky homeowners.
The dining room was once the kitchen area blocked off with walls. We were able to open everything up and install a large double sliding door to create one big open space to not only inside but outside.
We wanted really clean, contemporary lines in the kitchen and were really happy with our decision of the metallic glass backsplash, which tied everything together. The hood fan blends into the cabinets where we tried not to make it a focal point. The cabinet lowers are a light wood grain and the uppers are high gloss where we tried to find some balance between the two materials. Thanks to Riley’s Custom Cabinets for their great work.
We expanded the size of the ensuite bathroom, which did take some room away from the master bedroom but made the entire space much more livable. We accomplished this clean look by making the focal point of the room the flooring and tile from within the ensuite.
Floor to ceiling tile throughout the whole bathroom really makes this room pop. Similar to the Richardson project, we chose walnut, which has really nice grain for the vanity. We installed a vessel sink with an in-wall faucet to add some clean lines and behind mirror and under cabinet lighting to really add some wow factor.
In this bathroom, we really wanted to keep it simple and use big 12″ x 36″ white tile on the walls with the vanity blended in so it really had a bright feel to it. The floor has a grey tile, similar to the countertop’s colour, which kept with the theme of the bathroom where the goal was not to mix too many colours or materials.
Luckily the laundry room was nice and big so we were able to build a laundry area with lots of storage and countertop space. Yet again, this is an example of where we kept things simple and achieved a very contemporary practical space for washing up. The white subway tile works well with the cabinets and LG front loading washing and drying units matched with the colour pallet we had going on.
