Yorkville is one of the most distinctive and luxurious neighbourhoods in Toronto, but you wouldn’t have known it if you’d entered this condo before we did.
Once upon a time it certainly looked nice, but without having been updated in decades, it sat dated, tired, and drab.
So we went to work.
The client had very specific requirements for how their new space would feel and how it would function, with a focus on an elegant modern look that suited the neighbourhood. And with 1800 square feet, this gave us plenty of canvas to work with.
Some of the changes we made include:
- Moving walls
- Adding new ventilation
- Updating plumbing
- Updating electrical
- Building a brand new kitchen
- Building a dry bar
- Building two new bathrooms
- Adding new flooring
- New lighting
- A fresh coat of paint and trim
Essentially, we gave the project a complete overhaul.
Because this was a condo reno, there were some significant challenges to face.
When renovating a house, it’s easier to remodel plumbing and electrical systems, since it won’t affect anybody else. But if you’re a condo owner, there’s not much you can do about how these elements are set up. It’s always tricky to work around it.
In some cases, for example, you need to rewire the entire condo to make a renovation work, and you’re limited in where you can build a kitchen and a bathroom. But in this case, we were able to make everything work without having to rewire, which adds to a project’s price.
This particular building also had very strict rules set by their condo corporation as far as renovating goes. Every building is different in this regard, which makes this a unique obstacle in every job.
Despite all these challenges, though, we were able to meet this client’s needs without going beyond their budget.
This project won us “Best Condominium Suite Renovation” 2017 from the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD)
