Melanie & Harry’s Kitchen

April 21, 2022

One of my latest projects was a major kitchen renovation. It was a small kitchen, not enough counters old appliances, and it was not functional. Overall it was not a well-designed kitchen.

Here are some before pictures of the kitchen.

We took down the wall of pantry. This way, they would have an open concept. We also eliminated the windows by the table to extend the cabinets. Giving her much-needed cabinets.

We went shopping for all the items we would need. If you’ve ever done a kitchen reno, you know that’s a lot of shopping!! This is what was chosen.

The construction part of the project was done, and the items were all in. Some things took a while due to covid. But the end result is spectacular. Delighted clients!!



 

Updating the Spare Bathroom

February 24, 2022
When I moved into my current home a few years ago, I knew I would be redoing the spare bathroom. The tiles in the shower were starting to buckle so I knew it was time.

Here are some before pictures. Not the prettiest bathroom!                                             

 

 

These are the tiles I chose. The accent tiles were from Home Depot. The wall and floor tiles were from ProSource.

 

The excavation was the worst part. It usually is!! All that mess!

 

I can see the beginning of the design take place. So exciting to see!!

 

All done and I couldn’t be happier with the result. I didn’t spend a lot because this is not my main bathroom but I still wanted it to look nice. I was pleased with the results.

 

 

I even added a shelf for plants.

 

 

Bathroom Tiles in Beautiful Bold Colors

October 28, 2021

There’s been a trend from all-white designs to beautiful bold colors. I”m not saying white doesn’t have its place in the design world, I’m just saying I’ve seen bold colors making a comeback.

There are so many options and colors to choose from. You can go as bold as you like if you’re daring, or just add splashes of it. They have matt finishes to a high gloss. I do love them but truth be told, not sure I would go so bold.

How about you? Would you go bold?!!!

 

Black Tile Backsplash

October 14, 2021

Black is having its moment in the spotlight. It seems black is popular in just about in every design, from doors to gutters, to kitchens, black is definitely having its time in the spotlight.

So why not a black backsplash? Perhaps you’re thinking it may be too much, but you can add sparingly. Enough to make a statement but not be too overpowering.

Take a look at some of these designs.

Many of you are very familiar with wainscoting. Most often wood is used. But how about using tiles instead? This opens up many options with style and color. It gives the bathroom a  fresh and creative look. 

Talk about the wow factor. Here are just some ideas!!
