Kitchen and Bath

If you are thinking about renovating your home, the kitchen and bathroom are a great place to start! These two rooms, if renovated well, will increase the overall value of your home and the best part…you will just enjoy them more! Prior to any renovations you’ll need to think about the “look” you are going for. Here are a few tips on looks that are on trend but also timeless enough to stay in style for years to come.



White Hot! If you are looking to change your cabinets or overall colour of your kitchen, nothing is hotter than high gloss white, this goes for cabinets and appliances. This look is sleek-looking and easy to clean.

Bamboo is becoming popular for kitchen cabinets. Available in a number of styles bamboo gives a kitchen a natural, warm feel.

Change your back splash. Brightly coloured or patterned glass or plexi (in orange, green or blue) materials are replacing the traditional tiled back splash. For a really fresh look that is whimsical and can be easily changed.

Mix and match your hardware: Give your kitchen an eclectic look by adding mix and match hardware throughout. Also, consider using concealed cabinet hinges for a refined look.






 Black is back! Paint or tile your bathroom in a high gloss black for a look that is glamorous and a little bit Las Vegas.

Wallpaper a small space bathroom: Give your powder room punch by wallpapering the space in a bold print. Wallpaper all the walls and ceiling to give a look of a jewelry box interior.

Simple switch: Freshen your bathroom for fall and winter by changing up your accessories. Replace white towels for darker, jewel-tone versions. Add pieces of richly-coloured scented candles In a fall woodsy scent.
