Waterloo, Renovation

Before and After Condo Tour in Waterloo


Industrial Meets Modern

This home started out with exposed concrete and brick, along with outdated finishes. With this renovation, we assisted the clients in leveraging an industrial look with a modern feel, playing off of the concrete and brick, while also incorporating steel hardware and interior finishes. New flooring and tile, baseboard and casing, vanities and lighting, interior doors and partitions completely transformed the entire home and gave it a fresh facelift.

New Look, New Layout

Of course, a new look sometimes calls for a new layout. Previously, a den was located between the kitchen and master bedroom as pictured in the before photo here. The condo unit already included a den on the other side of the home, and instead of having two, the homeowners wanted to utilize this space to better suit their needs. One half of the den then became a part of the kitchen as the pantry space, and the other an extension of the master bathroom as a large walk-in shower. Moreover, there was still some space left over of what was the den which now functions as a utility closet.

A Better Use of Space

An added pantry and an upgraded walk-in shower are certainly a bonus, but the home updates don’t stop there. The couple had previously created a space for working out, something that has become in demand as gyms have closed during the pandemic. We elevated this space to seamlessly transition from the living room with the help of an industrial-style custom glass dividing wall by Big Glass Openings. A similar look can be seen in the track door that is separating the kitchen's dining space from the fitness area. The clients explained they like how this new design allowed them to be able to give each other some space a part while enjoying different hobbies.

Before & After

Take a look below to see how this home was transformed

  • Kitchen

    The kitchen makes a statement with under lighting, built-in cabinetry, and a pantry equipped with a track ladder and additional storage and counter space.
  • Fitness Area

    A mirror wall on the opposite of the divider and Johnsonite rubber flooring really helped to tie the whole gym experience together, but from the comfort of their home.
  • Master Ensuite

    The new master bathroom design and layout allowed more space for a free-standing tub instead of a connected tub and shower, now surrounded by lovely pendant lighting and a fireplace.
