Alberta Craftsman Remodel Upate

We are finally wrapping up the Alberta Craftsman house that we've been working on for over a year and a half! We transformed the kitchen by knocking down a wall to extend the space and introduced another window to flood the kitchen with light. We created a peninsula with storage and bar seating. We removed the upper kitchen cabinets, which were replaced with floating walnut shelves beneath a fully tiled wall. The dark countertops were updated with a marble patterned quartz. To add storage, we designed a hutch that adds character to the space. 

The unfinished basement was a daunting design challenge with bare concrete walls and low ceilings. The space planning included adding a full bath, laundry facility, lots of storage and a flex-use space. A large concrete abutment wall was our biggest obstacle, which we chose to turn into a lofted daybed area. We kept the palette light and bright and installed luxury laminate flooring to match the original hardwood floors in the rest of the house. We designed a variety of custom cabinetry, including concealed laundry cabinets, vertical clothing storage with a fold-down ironing board, and deep storage cabinets for large items. Mirrors were utilized to reflect light in the basement and make the space appear larger.
