Victoria Village

This Victoria Village bungalow had too many walls and closed in spaces. The home owner wanted an open and inviting space suitable for entertaining her friends and family. Thanks to Kurt Schmidt and his team from Spaces Construction, they did a fabulous job! By removing 3 walls it enabled us to enlarge her kitchen, so it could be open to the dining room which was now open to the living room. Perfect for entertaining. Thanks to Mike Giannantonio of Treehouse Fine cabinetry, the cabinetry looks amazing.

When you first come inside this bungalow, you are now greeted with a warm and inviting space, where before you just saw a wall and an awkward and not very safe set of stairs on the left leading to the basement. Photography by: mattvatcherphotography.com

Beautiful natural slate tiles in the entry mirror the walkway leading up to the home.

The staircase leading to the basement was moved to enlarge the landing at the entrance as well as make safe passage. Now going to the basement is much easier and safer.

With the addition of patio sliders (replacing a regular door and small window) and removing the enclosing walls, the dining room is now open to the adjoining rooms. This creates a great space for entertaining.

Fun lighting adds a bit of whimsy to the dining room, making it more inviting, as well as a conversation piece.

There is now room to enjoy a morning coffee at the breakfast bar, while the beloved pet can enjoy their breakfast too.

In the kitchen, the window was enlarged to give a better view of the back yard, as well as enlarge the countertop to extend into the window sill.

Adding functional pieces can also act as art for your walls, this wine rack would look good with nothing on it at all.

Doing dishes is much more pleasant with a view like this, and beautiful sconces cast a soft, warm light for clean up at the end of day.

The porcelain tiles on the backsplash emulate stacked stone, but with the ease of cleaning, as they are not porous. The flooring throughout the main floor is an engineered hardwood from NEUE-FLOORING. It is warm and inviting and flows seamlessly from one room to the next.

The elements of a good kitchen are all met here, with a good work triangle and everything in a well thought out location, to the left of the stove is a narrow pull out drawer for oils and spices, an otherwise under utilized space.

As important as a microwave is to a kitchen, it doesn't need to be front and centre, so we tucked it away beside the fridge, so it is still very functional, but not on display.

It's all in the details, these beautiful brushed brass pulls add warmth with their colour and you can feel the quality every time you open a cupboard.

With the new layout, we were able to put in a sizable pantry, not something the kitchen really had before, no more running up and down the stairs for extras.

The flow from the kitchen to the dinning room is open and easy to bring things from the kitchen to table.
