This was a most enjoyable project. Having worked together previously to renovate their kitchen, master bedroom, hardwood flooring and carpeting, the owners of this beautiful 10 Mile Point property were comfortable tackling the somewhat contentious “man cave”.
As often happens, this Victoria luxury kitchen renovation project morphed from “consultation for a paint scheme” to “let’s update the kitchen”!
The unit had been rented for a number of years while the owner was abroad and the tenants had done some creative painting… lots of feature walls and odd combinations (to put it mildly). Now it was time to personalize things and make this house a home.
This was a wonderful Victoria home renovation project with our favourite clients. We worked with this lovely family on a major addition a few years ago (the youngest was in diapers) and we were thrilled and honoured when they asked us to help with their latest endeavor – a master suite for the momma (in law).
This Victoria renovation involved two areas– the upstairs ensuite and main floor laundry/bathroom. Fortunately, there was another full bathroom for the clients to use while the others were under construction.
The ensuite layout and square footage were adequate so it was a matter of removing the old, dated fixtures and replacing them with those of a newer, more contemporary design.
The Cordova Bay bathroom renovation job came to us as a direct referral from a client whose ensuite we renovated a few years ago. This is the absolute epitome of success– clients referring friends and family to us as trusted renovation experts. You cannot buy that, you have to earn it! We are extremely grateful that the bulk of our renovation work is generated through personal referrals. Continue reading “Project Showcase: A Cordova Bay Bathroom Renovation”
