This project, Sun Lit + Kits, is an example of the type of Kitsilano bathroom renovations we do. Here, we transformed an outdated home with dark kitchen and oddly configured bathroom into a bright, open space with clean lines and design.
Kitsilano Bathroom Renovations: Oddly-Shaped Spaces Can Be Changed
The original ensuite bathroom in this Kitsilano bathroom renovation started out as an unusual L-shape built around a staircase. This was further complicated with main fixtures being crammed on one wall at the back, and the My House Team having to work around existing radiant heating in the floor.
By thoughtfully reconfiguring the space, our designers and builders were able to provide the homeowners with separate spaces for them to get ready – and more.
A long custom-depth vanity becomes a statement piece with an extra depth countertop and double trough sink. An underutilized tub was replaced with a light-filled walk-in shower with skylight. A beautiful freestanding tub now sits centerstage on the back wall with a ledge behind to place your glass of wine.
Other home upgrades included upgrading the hot water boiler to provide on-demand domestic hot water added for energy efficiency and comfort
The litter box (previously in a kitchen closet) was relocated to the powder room and concealed within a new vanity cabinet with access at the side.
In addition to the renovated bathroom, the My House Design/Build team also revamped the kitchen and entry way. Walls separated the kitchen from the dining and main living area, leaving the cook in a small, dark, unfunctional space. The My House Design/Build/Team suggested taking out walls and installing a flush-mounted steel beam to open the space.
The entryway was revamped with a better closet and a shoe storage system.
In the living room, a stone-hearth-style corner gas fireplace was replaced with a new modern fireplace with white tile surround, floating storage, and open shelving above to compliment the kitchen. A large skylight was added to bring in light while also maintaining privacy.
New engineered flooring throughout leads you upstairs to the master suite where the floor intertwines with the hexagon tile in the ensuite.
