One of the benefits of living in West Vancouver, BC is your proximity to the great outdoors. This busy family wanted West Vancouver home builders to renovate their beloved home to modernize the existing floor plan and better connect it with the outdoors.
Not only did the homeowners like the space, so did the home builders associations of Greater Vancouver, British Columbia, and Canada:

Here’s what we did for this project:
Creating a Continuous Indoor-Outdoor space
The kitchen was reconfigured to make the layout more functional as well as connect it to the backyard. We installed an 18-foot eclipse folding glass door that opens to the patio, connecting the kitchen with the outdoor space. This new door lets the light stream in, so even in winter the space feels bright and inviting.
The flow between the kitchen, adjoining dining/family room, and outdoor patio is now seamless. The family can now cook on their new built-in BBQ outside, their Wolfe gas-range inside, or their double-wall ovens at the exact same time!
To make the home brighter and more open our goal was to modernized the space. The white quartz countertops, against the sheen of the stainless steel appliances, with the hi-gloss cabinets make this kitchen feel ultra modern. To give the family much needed storage space, we installed a pull-out pantry and magic corners to make the most of every inch. The cabinets utilize soft-close technology and extend to the ceiling to create a more streamlined look. The new large linear island also includes comfortable seating for four.
Modernizing Living Spaces
We didn’t forget about the rest of the home! We updated the flooring, baseboards, paint, crown molding, and recessed light fixtures in the family room. Oh, and don’t forget that new fireplace! The built-in shelving on either side of the fireplace was removed, and now it looks stunning clad in stone from floor to ceiling. Can you say focal point?
