Reno Q & A

with Geneviève Joyal

We love the quiet central location of our 1960's bungalow and don’t plan on moving anytime soon. Our kids are all grown up, one has relocated their bedroom to the basement and the other is moving out. The empty room across the hall is sitting empty and the main bathroom next to it hasn't been updated since the house was built. My wife and I would love to expand our master bedroom, a functional walk in closet and an ensuite that embraces both technology and modern day luxuries.

By removing the central hallway and adjacent linen closets we gain valuable floor space that allows for the new layout. The vacant bedroom is divided to house the generously sized bathroom and custom walk in closet, which boasts a daring leather floor. Nothing screams technology more than a steam shower complete with body jets, aromatherapy and speakers connected to the built in iPod dock. The double sided fireplace can of course be enjoyed in the master bedroom, but homeowners welcome the option of viewing it while relaxing in their air jetted tub with heated backrest and integrated Wi-Fi headphones. In addition, not only is the floor heated but so is the remote controlled wall mounted toilet seat! The neutral color palette composed of greys, navy and brown lends itself to be equally appreciated by men and women. Personalized elements, such as the etched glass "dressing room" door, prove how this renovation was tailored to suit its' clients.
