A Modern Spa Retreat
The Homeowner's Vision
Find your sanctuary. Imagine walking into your bathroom and entering your very own luxurious spa retreat, complete with a soaking tub, an open shower, a steam unit and electric mirrors. Well, for these homeowners, this dreamy thought is their reality. When this couple decided to have a bathroom remodel they entrusted Kitchen & Bath Designer, Nathan Kyle to execute their vision.
Kitchen and Bath Designer, Dean Large of Astro Design Centre, has completed top-to-bottom designs in this new Farmhouse outside of Ottawa. His designs have won awards at the NBKA Design Excellence Gala, and have been featured in Ottawa at Home Magazine for its unique charm. Below is a recap highlighting Dean’s kitchen and bath designs in this new home
"The Kitchen in this 1940s Ottawa cottage was big enough for only one person to use and not suitable for the family now living there. “Before, this kitchen was about the size of a bathroom and was lackluster,” says interior designer Nathan Kyle of Astro Design Centre. Kyle began the design process by learning how the family likes to function in the kitchen when working together, then set up the layout accordingly. He took down a wall and incorporated into the kitchen a side entry hallway that had been a waste of space. He also added luxe elements that suit the family’s love of eclectic and contemporary style. Rich wood finishes and a lively backsplash provide a beautiful backdrop for a display of intricate pieces they brought to Canada from Iran and create a timeless look." - Becky Harris, Houzz
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.
Bathroom remodels can be long, daunting and inconvenient. Now imagine doing three bathrooms all at the same time! This brave couple decided to take on the challenge and update 3 bathrooms in their house; their powder room, guest bathroom and master bathroom. It was a challenging task for the Astro team but nothing that our award-winning Designer Nathan couldn’t handle.

Bathroom Renovations Have No Limits
Bathroom renovations can be daunting. There are so many magazines and websites that show you endless options of how to transform your room into the luxurious retreat you’ve been dreaming of. Beautiful, large walk-in showers are showcased alongside a signature freestanding bathtub in expansive spaces. But what happens when your bathroom is more cubby than colossal? Having limited space doesn’t have to limit your creativity!
