Markham Village Rejuvenation

LOCATION: Markham

OVERVIEW: We worked very closely with our client to design a more open concept main floor and a larger bathroom on the second floor. The main floor renovation consisted of removing walls and adding two beams, turning the old kitchen into a private sitting room and creating a new larger kitchen in another location of the home, removing one small window where new kitchen is, adding new openings and windows on both sides of the fireplace, adding new radiators under those same windows and adding a new fireplace.

The second floor of the home had a very narrow two piece bathroom which was transformed into a laundry room, and the open area (and some of the attic) was transformed into a full bathroom.

Both floors were completely refinished with the exception of the main floor bathroom (original walls were and layout were untouched as we had renovated this room a few years back). Proper insulation was added throughout the home. The walls, ceilings and floors were all laser leveled. New subfloors were added prior to new hardwood. Wood trim and new interior doors were installed throughout.

Finally, the staircase was transformed with new railings and posts. A new carpet was also installed on the stairs.

FEATURES: Hand scraped hardwood throughout the main and second floors; sun tunnels in the kitchen and upstairs bathroom. Barn door for pantry entrance. Caesarstone countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms. Foam spray insulation was used in the sloped attic space and proper venting was added. Stone fireplace and accent wall, with reclaimed wood for the mantle and accent wall. New exterior doors leading to the back yard with built in blinds.
