Open concept: a welcoming new look

Open concept: a welcoming new look

There were a few things the homeowners on Browning Avenue wanted: more functionality and space at their front entrance, for starters. And they didn’t like their divided main-floor layout.

Amsted Design-Build Home Renovations solved their situation in a beautiful way. You can see for yourself at the upcoming Reno Tour, Oct. 15, from 10 am to 4 pm.

The third annual Reno Tour, hosted by the Greater Ottawa Home Builders Association Renovators’ Council and the Ottawa RenoMark® program, is a true insider’s view of the results of beautiful award-worthy renovations.

This year, seven renovators and homeowners have agreed to open their doors to the public in order to show you their stunning projects. Proceeds from sales of tickets go to Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa.

For the homeowners on Browning Avenue, Amsted enclosed the existing exterior porch with a closet and custom bench seating. An additional window, mirrored doors, and light-coloured finishes made the entrance welcoming.

For the main floor, the homeowners wanted an open-concept living space with a comfortable but efficient flow of traffic. Amsted removed the wall dividing the kitchen and dining room. They expanded the kitchen space and re-organized the floor plan to create a more modernized space.

The new kitchen features natural bamboo cabinetry, black pearl granite and a glass tile backsplash. It includes a peninsula with counter seating. A convenient, custom wine bar with similar finishes expands the kitchen and pulls the rooms together.

The adjacent living room includes a beautiful fireplace update with floor-to-ceiling tile surround and custom built-ins.

The main bathroom was also reconfigured and personalized with a cherry wood vanity and bold accent tiles, blending both modern and natural aesthetic into the rest of the home for a seamless transition between old and new.
