Dundarave, West Vancouver, Kitchen Reface, Furniture Update & Ensuite Reno

This project involved a kitchen reface, keeping the client’s existing sink, faucet & appliances as well as a complete renovation of the master bedroom ensuite. In the kitchen, cabinets were reconfigured slightly, reclad and fit with new doors and drawer faces. A contemporary glass backsplash was added and new hardwood floors and lighting were updated by supplementing existing pendant lights with a stainless steel track heads and adding undercabinet lighting. A custom, lacquered media unit was designed and built for the family room to house the existing media equipment. In the master ensuite a free-standing contemporary tub with floor-mount tub filler was installed against a backdrop of linear textured tile. In-floor lighting highlights this tile. A larger shower with a flush-mount shower head and recessed linear shelf for holding soaps & shampoos was installed and enclosed with frameless glass for an expansive modern vibe.

Canyon Heights “Zen” Renovation, North Vancouver

This Zen-inspired North Vancouver renovation is all about texture. Mid-tone, horizontal rift-cut white oak cabinets warm up concrete floors in the kitchen. Natural stone countertops and black glass backsplash tile provide contrast. These darker elements are balanced by glass flip-up upper cabinets which are lit from behind. Even the hardware is installed horizontally for a clean, relaxed vibe. The guest bathroom is a calming space highlighted by marble tile installed in a linear format at the backsplash and juxtaposed with a pebbly format on the shower floor. The master ensuite vanity is anchored by a vertical column clad in textured natural slate mosaic supporting rift-cut oak floating shelves. The space is enhanced by another vertical build-out behind the toilet. This provides organized storage and display space as well as balance to offset the taller height of the Japanese soaker tub. Are you feeling Zen yet? (Photography by Randal Kurt Photography)
