Love It Or List It Vancouver: Belinda & Sam

Belinda & Sam had an absolutely gorgeous 100 year old character home in major need for renovations. It was in a great neighbourhood for their growing family which they of course didn’t want to stray too far from. Their two boys played lots of hockey so making them a mud room for all of their gear was closet to the top of my list. Along with opening up the main floor to accommodate the growth of the family. The character home had so many small details that I wanted to capitalize on to make them fall in love with what they originally saw.

I thought I was going down after not being able to redo the Master Bath and Ensuite because of the must have addition of a new sprinkler system. Those are both important sections of a renovation because the home owner uses and sees it on a daily basis. I was worried that no bathrooms at all would be the deciding factor for them. BUT… we ended up completely opening up the space and gave it an old warehouse feel. It transformed the entire floor to be bright, light and airy. They of course ended up falling in love with it all over again!!!

These gorgeous cabinets from Merit Kitchens added in a contemporary feel that wasn’t too over powering for the space. I wanted to keep everything rustic to match the original style of the character home. The subtle grey that we chose helped add the bright and open feeling throughout.

We updated their already gorgeous fireplace area by adding in a Valor insert and sprucing up the tile work and paint job. It was a great addition to the living room that I added in upstairs instead of downstairs.

I gave the boys a completely updated mudroom for them to store their hockey gear. We created this amazing storage unit with Stor-X to give them tons of storage with a fan inside to air out the smell.

    You (and your team) did an amazing job. I wish my mud room looked this good when it had hockey gear in it!

    Possibly my favourite of this season so far! Wonderful details and I may be stealing many of them. Question – does the show format ever change so you don’t have to “we are going to do everything but wait … now we have to take something away …” You and your team are too good not to know those things – tell your producers to give you some licence!!! Great job
