open concept living

Who we did it for:

The Klassen Family

Why we did it:

This 60’s bungalow had a tight kitchen, dining room and living room that did not serve this family of four well. Storage space was limited and the flow in the kitchen from the stove, sink, and counter space was not efficient. Our goal was to create a space felt open and bright, to connect the kitchen, dining room, and living room, and to maximize storage space. Mom and dad wanted to be able to see their twins play in the living room or do homework in the dining room while making supper in the kitchen. Aesthetically, the clients wanted their space to feel bright, clean, uncluttered and inviting. Even though we did not add square footage to the home, we were able open the 3 spaces, allowing them flow into one another, which provided functionality and the illusion of more space. A tremendous amount of storage was gained in the large island as well as in the pantry wall in the dining room (we even grabbed space from above the basement stairwell).

What we did:

  • Established the clients wish list
  • Interior Space Planning for the kitchen, dining room, and back entrance
  • Lighting Design
  • Finish & Fixture Specifications
  • Contract Administration

This renovation will allow the Klassen’s to enjoy the day-to-day activities of a busy family for years to come.
