This 60 year old Vancouver bungalow retained some of its original charm while getting a modern update during a complete overhaul of its interior. The original layout was compartmentalized and cramped so opening up the main floor was a priority for the clients who wanted to be able to entertain with ease.
A soaring vaulted ceiling was incorporated in the renovation to create light and space in an otherwise small kitchen area. A bedroom was transformed into a conjoining family room creating additional room for seating and living space in the common area.
White Attica caesarstone countertops pair beautifully with an apron sink in matte metallic grey. Concealed appliances behind meticulous millwork adds a contemporary touch and keeps the compact space streamlined. Ceramic mosaic backsplash in white satin complements Chantilly Lace white on the cabinets.
The open plan provides a feeling of spaciousness and creates a welcoming space for entertaining.
The earthen texture of Elderado stone on the fireplace surround speaks to the home’s era while keeping the overall feel light and bright. The flat-front cabinetry of the built-ins maintain a streamlined look and creates storage space to keep the space clutter-free.
The open plan layout now serves as an entertaining space where the family can be together while cooking and relaxing.
Custom built-ins solve the lack of storage and an added master ensuite creates a private space for the parents to enjoy time to themselves.
Khroma wallpaper in the powder room adds life to the small space that is pulled together with penny round mosaic flooring, caesarstone countertops, and a walnut vanity with brushed gold faucet.
The lower level is multifunctional with a family-friendly play area and mud room. Overall, the home was transformed with a nod to midcentury design while incorporating contemporary design elements, furniture and artwork.
