Kitchen Makeover: Reinventing The Space


Renovating a home when you have an active, busy and big family might seem completely daunting. However, the end result makes the months of agonizing decisions, construction mess and dinners consisting of takeout and sandwiches well worth it. Working with Tiffanie and Kent was a huge pleasure, they not only were a great client open to all the potential their space had to offer, but they were a lot of fun. This project shows that if the open mindset, creative use of a budget and enough patience are there then the end result will completely outweigh the process of tackling a major renovation.

A Before & After Bathroom Story


I am happy to share this before and after bathroom remodel with you! Kitchen & Bath designer Nathan was excited when homeowners, Martin and Lynne, reached out to him.  They were ready to remodel their very tired and very pink master bathroom, which needed to be refreshed.  Nathan and the couple decided on a contemporary, yet warm themed bathroom that was also luxurious. The main goal in designing this space was to make it functional for the two homeowners.  This meant transforming the clients existing bathroom from a single sink vanity, toilet and tub combination to a true 5 piece Master Ensuite.

Craftsman Meets Contemporary Style

If you’re like these homeowners and want to mix two different styles together, you’re in luck. With the help of a designer, achieving that harmonious blend between two styles is possible!  With this cottage kitchen & bath project, our designer used the Craftsman style architecture of the home and planned to blend it with the desired contemporary spaces. These two styles, while quite different in theory, compliment each other beautifully in décor and design.
