When it comes to ways to modernize your home, many people do not know where to even start. It can quickly become overwhelming with
too many choices,
too many friends/family offering their own suggestions and of course,
the investment ALWAYS comes into play.
Background of my Clients
My clients were living in Mexico for the past 3 years due to work. While they lived in Mexico for three years, their son lived in the home and managed the property.
Upon moving back to Canada, my clients were aware that their home they built was looking and feeling dated. My client thought that naming their project Casa Nueva (new house) would be a great name!
This week’s Project Reveal was a great modernizing project where we focused on 3 main areas.
Modernize your home
There were a total of 3 major feature walls plus the powder room. Since we knew our palette for this entire home was going to be cream and blue, we chose a really beautiful blue to change out these walls (see below)
My clients knew they would soon be blessed with a new puppy – a Bernese Mountain Dog! As such, we chose to go with one flooring for the entire main floor. The floor we chose is water resistant, kid resistant and pet resistant.
What is also great about this flooring is it is phthalate free, there is no formaldehyde, and it is Floorscore certified.
Millwork is woodwork that can be found (or not found) throughout the home. In this home, there was one dated millwork piece we needed to address (the round column) and a couple of areas where millwork would be added.
Modernize Your Home
While we addressed three major areas in this home to modernize it, we also addressed the following:
To work with the existing cabinets and granite we updated the backsplash tile.
