A classic new look for this Quebec condo

Ready for a fresh start, this homeowner wanted to tackle two rooms in her Quebec City condo: the bathroom and the kitchen. Our Verified Contractor got straight to work, making both spaces more functional and aesthetic!

After the bathroom and kitchen were demolished, plumbers came in to relocate and change the pipes. The kitchen’s floors and cabinets were replaced, and a beautiful new island was installed. Back in the bathroom, the floor and wall tiles were replaced, and a new Italian shower and bathtub were brought in.

This bathroom was in dire need of a makeover. The tub shower didn’t fit the homeowner’s needs, and the beige tiles aged the room several decades. With a very specific vision in mind, the homeowner picked out all new bathroom elements. A new Italian shower, a double vanity, a freestanding tub, new tiles… all of these came together to create a brighter and more practical space!

kitchen with dark cabinets and L shaped counter

The original kitchen was a bit basic. Beige covered the floors, walls, and countertops, and dark cabinetry obscured any light that came in from the window. The L-shaped layout made it feel closed off, and the lack of counterspace certainly didn’t make the kitchen practical for daily use. One thing was certain: the dark kitchen had to go!

Moving the fridge made all the difference: opening the door no longer blocked the hallway! And changing the kitchen layout to include a large island added both counter and storage space.

A bright kitchen with some special features

When renovating, many homeowners end up making their floors match their kitchen cabinets. For this project, it was a fantastic choice: the plethora of whites and greys helped brighten the room and make it feel larger. The dark quartz countertops and subtle black cabinet handles help ground the space while providing a nice subtle contrast.

One noteworthy addition was installing a butcher block counter beside the oven. A lot of folks forget that you can mix and match countertop materials. This is a great example of using that to your advantage to create a dedicated prep space for cooking!
