Ottawa Interior Design for Modern Home in New Edinburgh
Sometimes even a new home is missing those finishing touches to make it really great. This family of 5 needed custom storage solutions to integrate seamlessly with their modern esthetic and decorating. Their bathroom was surprisingly dated for a new home and the house wasn't quite fitting.
Their kitchen was really more of a corridor with three doorways and a makeshift work station, It was amazing this young family of 4 had managed for so long. They also desperately needed a mud room solution and a powder room and hoped to be able to integrate it into their main floor which was already tight. They have a beautiful back yard with interesting grading that prevented them for really enjoying so a wisely integrated deck would allow them to reclaim this lost oasis.
With twin girls on the way and a toddler it was important to make this house into the home this young family needed. We added integrated custom millwork in key locations window treatments and all the finishing touches that make a home cosy and personal while capitalizing on its opportunites to elevate this family's lifestyle and invite them to thrive.
This is a classically styled home with lovely proportions in the living room that we needed to recreate in the limited space of the new kitchen and dining room. A classic galley kitchen with shaker doors and pretty brass detailing beautiful hanstone quartz countertops and classic subway tile backsplash make for a kitchen that looks like it was always here. We tucked a tiny powder room with a wall hung toilet to save space and a minimal counter and hand washing sink with a recessed cabinet to store toothbrushes and a few essentials. Custom millwork that compliments the kitchen cabinetry was added all along the back wall to provide ample storage and an integrated family desk / workstation with a window to look out. Their lovely new exterior stair way and deck finishes crowns their home with a lovely al fresco dining experience and seamless intergration with the outdoors as only a wonderful outdoor room can.
With careful interior design detailing we created beautiful floor to ceiling custom wood closets throughout this home for elegant and ample storage solutions. We created moving walls and hidden doors to add modern elements in a seamlessly integrated way. A minimalist new fireplace and hearth were added to provide ambiance and warmth. The gem of this extensive renovation is the luxurious and understated master bathroom with a walk in shower, vintage refurbished clawfoot tub and marble faced custom steel vanity. We hand picked and ortiented every peice of marble that went in that bathroom and performed a couple drylays to ensure the grain direction is seamless and the final look feels balanced and harmonious. With such careful attention to detail worthy of such fine materials our clients are proud of the lasting legacy they have created and are delighted with the ease and comfort they experience in their newly renovated home.
