  • This Client has a Kitchen Renovation Fully Featured in the 'Kitchens Gallery' (Direct Link )

    The Details: The Bookshelfs, Alcove Seating Face Panel and All Staircase Components were spray painted 'Off site' with a Durable laquer finish similiar to how painted kitchen cabinets are done. The actual color (white) of these components was "matched' to the Tint of the paint applied with brush 'on site' to the remaining moldings for a seamless transition. All of these 'off site' laquer finished components were meticulously cut and intalled 'on site' after return delivery.

    Design elements: All new Recessed Lighting was strategically installed throughout the upper floor to highlight key features, focal points and traffic areas of the remodelling project. (similar to a accent light over a painting) The new railing stain colour (Brown) was also used on the bookshelf counters and was later complimeted by the customer with the addition of a new feature wall color around the fireplace (Brown) and alcove bench seat cushion fabric (Brown) thus 'tying' in various elements of the upper floor.

    Points of Interest : The Window had to be raised & replaced in the center of the Alcove area to accomodate the new Seating/Storage/ Bench height. The adjacent windows were replaced to match aswell.

    The Details: The Window Mouldings are composed of 6 different mouldings. The beaded 'Stiles' are an 'off the shelf' variety with the Window Sill being 'Joined' with 4 different components to create the Unique Stool & Apron. The Header or Architrave of the Windows and Doors also contain 3 different components that were Cut & Fitted for proportion and then Joined to display a Unique and Personal Design that is less elaborate and generic in appearance than your standard 'off the shelf' one piece architrave moulding.

    Points of Interest : Non standard height 36" wide sliding bypass fir doors with opaque glass compliment both sides of the new bedroom as openings to 'His' and 'Hers' wardrobe closets.

    Design Elements: Take note that the Closet doors, Pony wall Mantel and Fireplace Mantel are stained to match each other in all 4 directions of the room. Also take note that the Dbl hardwood floor border around the fireplace continues along in front of the exterior doors. You may also notice that when i did the lighting layout, I made certain that the fireplace stonework and mantel were highlighted without interfering with the TV viewing. ( No reflection or Glare)
