We are in the planning and budgeting stage. Renovating existed kitchen (~90ftsq) with appliance relocation. Kitchen is a "G" shape. planning to include the same cabinet style in the pantry area (~90ftsq) including flooring, backsplash, painting and countertop. Although we are not planning the most expensive materials, we are not planning to put back the old/dated materials either. We need first a free estimate/guidance on the design and ideas to make the kitchen easy to use. Following forward to hear.
I have 3 bathrooms that need to be renovated.
I have a powder room that has a vanity and toilet in a linen colour that needs to be updated. It also needs to be painted.
The main bathroom upstairs needs the most work. I'm dealing with mold. The tub and toilet are in a linen colour and I want white. The vanity and toilet need to be replaced. The fixtures and hardware as well. New tiling and painting needed. The fan needs to be updated so I'm not dealing with the mold issue.
The last bathroom is the ensuite bathroom and everything in their needs to be updated as well.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
We have a mostly finished basement which needs to be renovated into a separated apartment with a kitchenette. The total basement area for Reno is approximately 520 square feet. The Reno would include the following:
- All floors converted into either a laminate or carpet flooring option
- Finishing the cellar room (110 sq feet) (building a wall around the furnace unit)
- Extending the bathroom to fit a standing shower option (currently only vanity and toilet can fit)
- Remove a door and finish the wall from one side (living room to cellar)
- Create a new doorway from cellar wall to bedroom
- Breakdown one wall down from the living room to the stairs
- Encasing the stairway (building a wall and a doorway to separate the basement from the top)
- Replacing the ceiling and painting the living room
- Getting the corner of the living room kitchenette ready (sink, Fridge, Stove, counter, exhaust)
We are aiming to get this work finished by mid May this year.
