The perfect place to start your morning
Eggs Benedict, caramel and apple crepes, classic American hamburgers… there’s a lot to love about Petinos. The restaurant chain has been providing Canadians with magical meals for over 20 years, and now it has its eyes set on Lasalle. After acquiring an empty commercial building, the owners knew they’d need reputable contractors to recreate that same warm and relaxing environment, so they reached out to RenoAssistance for help.
Since they were working with an unfinished space, they hired several Verified Contractors, a project manager, an architect, and a designer to ensure that everything would be built according to plan.
The owners were starting with a clean slate. The foundation had been laid and the basic supports were in place, but the space was lacking floors, walls, and even ceilings! The team got to work installing and painting all the drywall and dividing the area into three distinct sections: a dining room, a bar, and an industrial kitchen. The plumbing, HVAC, and electrical were all taken care of by specialists as needed.
Meanwhile, the front entrance was adorned with a wall of windows to brighten up the dining and service areas. Sprinkle in some dark vinyl flooring and bright white paint and you’ve got the base of this soon-to-be beautiful restaurant. Now, to begin the decorating process!
Warm tones for a cozy feel
A stunning split-complementary palette takes centre stage in the dining room. The blue wall and green chair cushions play up the oranges and browns in the seating area. The white ceiling and walls add a bit of brightness, helping the light bounce around the room, while the dark floor grounds it to create the perfect warm and cozy atmosphere. You’ll find yourself looking around, entranced by each detail selected for the room!
An organized kitchen for increased functionality
Sandwiched between the kitchen and dining room is the customer service area. Servers can make drinks like coffee and tea with ease and are able to quickly access cups, lids, and anything else needed in the under-counter shelves to complete an order. The service hatch allows them to continue with the flow of customers, grabbing and delivering plates as they’re completed. Blue subway tile serves as a finishing touch – it climbs the accent wall, adding playful colour and textural contrast against the white walls and ceiling.
