The Story Behind the Reno

Designer: Etch Design Group – Photography: Sophie Epton Photography

Scientific study shows that spaces where we spend a lot of time – like our homes – have a big influence on our lives. Big or small, renovations can vastly improve a person’s emotions and productivity! We teamed up with Etch Design Group to breathe more light into this condo.

The Kitchen

During the demo portion, all of the plumbing was disconnected and the countertops and cabinetry were hauled off. Recessed canned lights were removed in order to accommodate new lighting selected by Etch Design Group.

New custom built cabinets were installed after being sprayed in a light grey. On top of those, quartz with deep gray veining were laid down. These countertops would also be used for the custom-fabricated island, which had a four-legged bottom and featured a trash pullout. Two pendant lights were installed to hang over the island. Etch opted to add under strip lighting outlets that would be hidden under the cabinetry lip.

The Bathroom

The entire bathroom was gutted out! This included demoing out the cabinets and removing all the floor tiles. Two sconce lights were added around the vanity mirror.  In the shower, new shower fixtures were installed, this included a new hand sprayer and a new linear drain. On the shower floor, we installed ceramic, penny style, and tile. The tile surrounding the shower is made of a vertical hexagon pattern. A new custom-built shower door was put in place to finish the shower area. The cabinetry was the last installment, with new countertops and a backsplash.
