In this extensive project NOVERO took a 90s-style house and updated it into a more contemporary space for a growing family. We focussed on creating a highly functional kitchen, not only to make meal prep easier, but also to encourage socializing. The now light-filled kitchen features a kitchen bar, window seats with hidden storage and deep maintenance-free Quartz countertops. Both fireplaces were given contemporary finishings: in the family room, grey textured stone bricks contrast with a dark wood mantel. In the living room, a floor-to-ceiling sleek tile fireplace surround becomes the room’s centrepiece.
