The Space

A quaint 1940s 1 ½ story brick home located on a beautiful, tree-lined street in a quiet residential neighbourhood in Waterloo. The home is located very close to the downtown core with the ability to walk to certain areas of the city.

The home had a ton of potential but needed a major update to create a comfortable living space for a small family that recently purchased it.

The Challenge

The home was extremely dated with a very dark entry, a small, closed in kitchen, a laundry room in the basement and no main floor bathroom. There had been a small addition added off the kitchen in the late 70s which had dated wallpaper, a green shag rug and an awkward bay window looking out into the back yard.  

The challenge was to create a functional yet beautiful main floor with a laundry room, bathroom and large kitchen. The owner wanted the space to feel light and airy with a focus on fine details and good quality finishes that will last.
