This house had the right amount of space, so no addition was required but it definitely was not the owner’s style.  To start (after demo) we added a wall in the kitchen area to create a working pantry. This had 2 effects- gave a place to “hide every day living with the huge open concept space and allowed a more functional galley size kitchen. The wall ovens are really in the panty, along with a small dishwashing drawer, a mini fridge, sink and a lot of storage.

The main kitchen was pulled into the great room, but the peninsula had a custom connecting table. With the cooktop wall brought forward (pantry behind), the kitchen does not feel like a cavern. The galley kitchen also has the main dishwasher sink and every needed for cooktop meal preparation.

The kitchen is a combination of grey (custom matched to floor) stained hickory cabinets- which shows the grain, and some warmth coming through.  White bright 65% sheen poly acrylic finish in Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly lace.

The floors were changed to an exceptionally durable porcelain wood look floor from Centura tile. 

The fireplace brick was removed, and simply painted, with a black Neolith frame around the fireplace. The cabinets were existing and refaced and the shelves added above to create a place for your eye to land without getting overwhelmed by the 20ft fireplace. 

The staircase was a traditional wrought iron and wood railing, we created a brilliant modern look with glass panels and the stain grey posts (matching kitchen, floor- you get the idea). 

Even the bathroom received an upgrade to finish off the renovation.

This is our home and we are thrilled with the renovation performed by Covenant Construction. It was a very large project and difficult to live without a kitchen however Craig and his team were so thoughtful and ensured the job site was clean every night when they left and they went to great lengths to ensure the other parts of the house were dust free. Our on site man Bob, AKA Bob the builder was great to work with. We actually miss him a bit. LOL. If you need work done I highly recommend Covenant. Thanks guys.
