A fresh remodel for a Kitsilano condo was needed to create the modern and clean aesthetic the client wanted. The addition of new materials created a space that is bright and feels larger after rearranging and getting rid of unnecessary walls. Headland Construction partnered with us to achieve the beautiful end result!
Before & After Kitchen
The removal of the wall in the kitchen opened up the main living area, allowing natural light to flow all the way through the condo and expanded the space visually. This created space for a large peninsula with a bar, perfect for entertaining guests. The kitchen was finished in light, reflective materials to ensure the space feels clean, lively and speaks to the aesthetic of the rest of the home.
Backsplash/Wall Tile: Ican Tile
Kitchen Cabinets: Kitchen Craft
Before & After Bar
The back-splash was purposefully continued floor-to-ceiling along the kitchen wall to create the illusion of larger space and allow for a division between the kitchen and dining space. Tile that complimented the back-splash was installed on the floor, which grounded the kitchen. Increased storage and overall height was created by building the cabinets to the ceiling instead of being pressed up against a bulkhead. The result is a multi-functional space that opens itself up to the rest of the home.
Bar Stools: Pistol Bespoke
Floor Tile: C&S
Before & After Living
Because the space only has windows on one side, we selected light coloured, neutral finishes to add to the brightness that this space so desperately needed. Engineered white oak floors work in harmony with the grey and champagne accents. Drapery was installed floor-to-ceiling underneath the bulkhead that was extended to span the entire room, creating a streamlined, custom, and continuous look. Through smoothing a textured popcorn ceiling, the space now feels even brighter and larger than before.

Before & After Bedroom
The oak flooring throughout replaced the dark and dingy carpet. This especially brightened up the bedroom, with the help of new paint, light fixture and modern furnishings. The sheepskin rug added an extra bit of coziness that the bedroom needed.

Before & After Bathroom
The same tile that was used for the kitchen floor was also used in the bathroom. Installing an IKEA vanity helped save on costs while increasing much needed storage. The addition of two wall sconces also created better lighting for makeup application and more luxurious look. The glass shower door added transparency and help to make the bathroom appear larger, especially with the new shower pot light that was installed to brighten the space even further. A herringbone tile detail on only one wall of the shower in combination with a shower niche creates thoughtful custom details on a budget.
