Port Moody Simplicity – Home Renovation

Another happy family with another renovation project completed! This one we call Port Moody Simplicity.

In this project, we radically updated the kitchen according to the family’s wants and needs. New cabinets in a bright white, an island for family gathering, upgraded appliances and improved storage.

New, bigger windows and design changes in the kitchen and dining room meant better access to and views of the back yard. Bathrooms were upgraded too.

This renovation included energy-efficient upgrades, including Lo-E Solar windows, high-efficiency appliances, and LED lights. Where possible, building materials were recycled or refinished.

See the Port Moody Simplicity gallery for before and after pictures of this home, including kitchen, dining room, bathrooms and living space.
