Laundry Room & Bath Project

Today I have a new project to tell you about.

  We are currently working on a renovation to a ranch style house.  The house is really dated, built in the early 80's with lots of linoleum and brown throughout.  But the house has great bones - generously sized rooms and lots of potential.  Plus, it sits on a beautiful piece of property with mature trees and lovely landscaping. It's owned by my brother, Mason, and sister-in-law, Karly, and their two sweet kiddos.

The first phase of the renovation includes the side entrance.  It is the main entrance for their family, being just off the garage and beside the kitchen.  Currently, the space houses a hall closet, small pantry cupboard, bathroom and sauna (yes, sauna!).  We are re-vamping it to include a message station, locker storage, a laundry area and a bathroom.

Mason and Karly like a bit of a contemporary aesthetic.  Clean lines and simple decor with warm colours.  I think this style really compliments the architecture of their home.

So here are the before photos of their current side entrance/bathroom:

Here are a couple of inspiration shots for the laundry area:

I created this mood board for them.  Hopefully this helps them to narrow down the choices for their finishes.

1. Slate Tile
2. Mini Chevron  and  PomPom Play from Tonic Living
3. American Standard Faucet
4. Paint Colours by Benjamin Moore:  Sweet Daphne # 529 (walls) and Gunmetal #1602 (Chalkboard)
5.  Stainless Steel Tube Pulls from Lee Valley
6. Glass Tile for Backsplash
7. Caesarstone Countertops in Whisper 4620
8. Ikea Ribba Frames with B&W photography

I'll be back tomorrow with the bathroom mood board!

Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last post.  The blog universe is so strange and I feel so attached to so many of you people who I've never even met in real life.  Your comments are always read and appreciated by me - probably more than you know!

  1. The kitchen countertops should be sturdy, durable, stain resistant, quiet, hygienic, heat resistant and easy to maintain. However, none of the materials are known to feature all the above mentioned features.
