We’re thrilled to feature a recently completed home renovation in Coquitlam: Dramatic Lines.
This 1965 home underwent changes throughout, including opening a challenged entrance way, and transforming a dark kitchen with angular island into a bright space with white cabinets, better views, more seating, and a hidden pantry.
Dramatic lines refers in part to the flush, black herringbone ceiling detail that goes from the entrance way to the entertainment area, arriving at a modern fireplace. Black is also used on window frames and the kitchen island.
See the Dramatic Lines gallery for before and after pictures of these features as well as changes made to the master bedroom, teen bedrooms, laundry room and exterior.

Please read this important winterization bulletin to ensure your home is prepared for winter.
Do you have automatic sprinklers?
It’s time for an annual irrigation system “blow out”. Fall winterization is recommended to ensure that your system does not freeze over the winter. Winterization involves more than just turning the water off. It is also recommended that water be forced out of your sprinkler pipes with an industrial compressor.

Right from the beginning it was evident that this Coquitlam Renovation was unique. It’s first impression was memorable as immediately after entering the front door, just past the dining table, there was a tree growing in the middle of home! Upon further inspection of the space it became apparent that this home had undergone several alterations during its lifetime. Especially in the atrium, there was exterior siding, stucco, dirt floor, exterior light fixtures, and openings. Clearly the previous owners had added a roof over an exterior courtyard to capture the space for interior use. Removing the dirt floors and spider webs was a very high priority for these clients.

A home should reflect its inhabitants. It seems that home design is becoming more and more impersonal – clients want their home to look like the images they see online or in magazines, but maybe that isn’t the best objective when it comes to design? We feel that a home should be a collection of the possessions our clients love, and a true reflection of their personality – quirks and all. The owners of this project were some of the most fun, bubbly and jocular clients we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, and their home shows it.
