Builder-Basic Gets an Upgrade

For this redesign, our clients were looking to add some luxury to a builder-basic house.

In the master bedroom, we added a walk-in closet with stained oak storage to help keep the space organized and the bedroom floor clothes-free. Four-drawer units help create storage for smaller items, while long- and short-hanging rods create plenty of places to hang clothes. The ensuite boasts a stunning countertop-to-ceiling mirror, crackled-textured accent tile in the shower and a freestanding tub.

For the main bathroom, we created a fun bathroom for two young girls in a timeless style that will grow them. We used dark navy blue cabinetry and a multi-coloured neutral accent tile in shower and at the vanity. An adjustable, handheld showerhead moves up and down and can be adjusted as the children grow, and also makes cleaning the bathtub easier.

We transformed the kitchen into a space where this couple can age in place. Added storage in the pantry frees up countertop space and keeps kitchen items clean. The large island is a place for the family to visit and cook meals together. The rustic wood on the back of the island brings texture into the space, as does the heavy-duty steel wire shelving. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets were placed on one large wall and a coffee-and-tea area was created outside of the kitchen, out of the way of the cook.

From the very first consultation with Cassandra and Patrick all the way to the very last blind install the level of service is top notch. Not a single detail was overlooked! When people walk into our home they notice that the quality of our kitchen and baths are not builder basic. Not only are these spaces visually stunning, they fit our daily life; functional, beautiful and most importantly they will last a lifetime (even with our 2 bulldozers known as children!).

Every single person I have worked with from William Standen has been professional, organized and has an attention to detail like no other. Most importantly, everyone has been kind, honest and eager to help answer questions and get the job done in a timely and efficient manner.

We walked into William Standen completely overwhelmed with how many choices needed to be made. From paint, flooring, cupboards, backsplash tile, lighting fixtures, lighting placement, you name it – and you have helped us immensely by making the selection process so easy!

Our home looks like us and it is so incredibly functional for our family. I don't have enough words to explain how much I love spending time cooking in my kitchen because it is so easy to use. The flow of every single space in the house has been thought of and meticulously planned. l'm still stunned every time I walk into our home. This is really our home?! It looks like something out of a magazine but is made for our family.
