Discovery Ridge Entertainer’s Dream

When we first met this family, it was clear that they lived life to the fullest. They were already living the hygge life but needed their Discovery Ridge home to reflect their entertainer’s dream. We had long conversations about how they lived and what their goals were. As always, we listened hard, and the result was stunning.

As soon as we walked into the home, we noticed that the house was not flowing well. There were walls at strange 45-degree angles and half walls creating pinch points breaking up the flow of the space. We didn’t gain any square footage in this renovation, but it felt that way because of the functionality we gained through smart decisions. This home underwent a full transformation from top-to-bottom. We moved some structural walls and reimagined the space so that you feel enveloped with a warm hug when you walk in.

We updated the kitchen with exquisite new cabinetry, countertops and a gorgeous conversation-piece island with seating for five people. Hidden behind a secret door is a pantry fit for this home-preserving chef. The dining room now seats eight for all those lavish dinner parties the homeowner will throw. To serve those thirsty guests, there is a beverage station between the kitchen and the dining room, complete with a Miele coffee maker, a built-in fridge, and drawers that can handle the weight of bottles. The family room was updated with a modern gas fireplace and built-in shelving for all the family artifacts.

Our homeowner sometimes works from home, and now they might work from home more often with the home office updates. We bumped back the non-structural wall, removed the 45-degree half wall, and added glorious glazing that provides some acoustical privacy but allows light to pass freely through this now very bright home.

The mudroom was expanded and made exceptionally functional for this family of four, but it’s so gorgeous I think they’ll have a hard time wanting to traipse any mud through this room.

We moved the laundry from the mudroom to a walk-in closet on the second level, where the majority of the laundry happens.

You’ll want to sneak into the master ensuite washroom when you see the luxurious steam shower and soaker tub. And let’s not forget about the hidden cabinet for the wonderful bathroom products to be stowed.

Moving along to the lower level, we updated the dated bar. We added a full wall of cabinetry and countertop space as well as furnished it with a sofa table so everyone can enjoy the big game in the entertainment centre.

In addition to the things we just mentioned, we replaced the flooring, painted the walls, and updated the lighting fixtures throughout the home.

As this renovation was too large to be done justice by our projects page, we created a 2-part video case study for this renovation. You can watch Krista walk you through the home in Part 1 and Part 2 or read the full description there. It’s your choice!
