Love It Or List It Vancouver: Michelle & Mike

Man oh man…. Michelle and Mike had been through a lot with their house: a basement flood removed half their living area, boxes of what they could save from the flood were taking over their already-cramped main floor, and Michelle had fallen down the steep stairs and cracked 2 ribs … This house – on their “dream street” – was starting to turn into a nightmare!!! We all decided to tackle the most pressing issues – and in the true Love it or List it fashion – we were going to do it quickly!

Demo had already been done for us (thank you, flood!), we just needed to make a couple wall moves to add a laundry and bathroom to the layout – the rest was a blank canvas ready for us to do our thing!

The bathroom turned out great – with a generous vanity and a massive shower from Kohler, this bathroom is not only functional in its size and storage but it is also quite elegant.

A lovely tile edge detail in contrasting black gives this bathroom its character.

The laundry room is also generous thanks to the custom barn door from Sapeli Doors – in a stunning end-grain oak veneer, this door adds function (doesn’t take up any room swinging into the space) as well as style.

The guest bedroom is now an oasis – with a new window (old one was overlooking the garage!) and soft wallpaper, new bed and simple furnishings – this space is so peaceful… and encourages sleeping in…

The mudroom – man, this was a big project! – the mudroom was so desperately needed for everyday use and storage. A new closet (with a chalk board reminder board!), storage under the stairs and a perfect little bench with hooks and cubbies – there’s no reason for anything to be out of place in this room.

Oh – and the all-important stairs: yes, we fixed those too and added new carpet and proper picket railing to make it safe as well as beautiful.

To cap everything off – and to give the family the much-needed living area back – we tackled the media room and made it an amazing space for everyone to gather, watch movies and spend time together.

Design Lighting supplied this renovation with stylish and slightly edgy fixtures like this white woven central fixture over the media room and the chrome wire sconces on either side of the tv – great touches!

And the wet bar is ready for family popcorn and movie nights as well guy beer nights (if Michelle allows it!).  Complete with a gorgeous stainless steel apron front sink from Kohler, this space is well suited for gatherings of any size.

We hope we’ve given Michelle and Mike the space they so desperately needed with this extension of their living area as well as the functional solutions, this should help have them fall in love with their house again – we hope!

A big thank you as always to Janis Nicolay for the gorgeous photos!!
