This Victoria Village bungalow had too many walls and closed in spaces. The home owner wanted an open and inviting space suitable for entertaining her friends and family. Thanks to Kurt Schmidt and his team from Spaces Construction, they did a fabulous job! By removing 3 walls it enabled us to enlarge her kitchen, so it could be open to the dining room which was now open to the living room. Perfect for entertaining. Thanks to Mike Giannantonio of Treehouse Fine cabinetry, the cabinetry looks amazing.
Victoria VillageWhen you first come inside this bungalow, you are now greeted with a warm and inviting space, where before you just saw a wall and an awkward and not very safe set of stairs on the left leading to the basement.

Kitchen with a viewIn the kitchen, the window was enlarged to give a better view of the back yard, as well as enlarge the countertop to extend into the window sill.

The flooring throughout the main floor is an engineered hardwood. It is warm and inviting and flows seamlessly from one room to the next.
