The Lakefront Home clients owned a beautiful property directly overlooking a lake in the Okanagan, but felt the home on the property needed some major changes for them to feel truly at home. With that in mind, we worked with them to turn their home into a place they love to be. In the end, we renovated the entire main floor of this two story home.
When we first visited the home the kitchen was at the back of the home, not taking advantage of the lake view. We moved the kitchen to the front of the home where it had a beautiful view of the lake. In doing this we moved posts and walls, creating open space by installing long span beams.
The cabinets in the kitchen were custom made shaker style cherry cabinetry. The kitchen also featured granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, chrome and glass tile backsplash and a free standing stainless steel hood fan.
What truly made the kitchen stand out was its custom designed island. This island featured a sink, dishwasher, power outlets, light switches and even a wine fridge.
As part of the main floor renovation, we worked with the client to produce a number of custom mill-worked pieces to meet their needs.
Every bedroom received a new cherry wood closet organizer. The living room features a custom entertainment home theater centre that was designed to incorporate the clients’ existing electronics. In the home office we added custom shaker style cherry cabinets that integrated with the clients’ existing desk.
The entire main floor was redone with a new dark walnut hardwood floor that really ties together the complete renovation.
