Transformation on Alberni

This is really one of those times where I am just kicking myself for not having the "before" shots! This renovation was done on a two bedroom condo just off Robson Street. The client is a young couple that decided to move downtown into a smaller space to have a more urban lifestyle. They are just in the process of moving in so there is more work to be done - but here are the first pictures of the kitchen and bathroom!

The kitchen used to be a typical galley kitchen with a pass through to a dining room next to the windows. When you first walked in, directly in front of you was a wall. As you can see, this suite is quite high up and has a city view. By removing the wall and reconfiguring the kitchen, not only does the client get a beautiful large cooking space, but they now also have a bright, sunlit home where they are reminded as soon as they walk in the door that they are no longer in the suburbs!

The island is large enough to seat 6 people and easily takes the place of the dining room which was too narrow and awkward to seat a large group.

The cabinets in this kitchen have been custom built and painted in a warm light grey and a dark dramatic charcoal. The counters are the reverse. The hood fan cover was custom built over a motor to provide more of a furniture look. The backsplash is back painted glass.

These are a couple of pictures of the bathroom - keeping with the warm greys I used a dark porcelain floor, light walls and accents of glass bars and mosiacs.
