Comox Contemporary redesign of 2 Kitchens and 2 Bathrooms; Upstairs – Downstairs

A single family home in Comox converted into a two residence dwelling with the homeowners upstairs and renters downstairs created a need for 1 new and 1 redesigned kitchen and 2 redesigned bathrooms.
The upstairs kitchen was originally a separate room and we opened it up to the social zone with the exception of one oversized beam that holds the furnace chimney from below.

The dining room features a dark grey wall with white cube shelving while the kitchen features white subway tiles on the backsplash with bookmatched horizontal edge grain fir on the cabinetry.

The dark grey of the dining room wall carries into the kitchen via the pre-existing bulk heads over the cabinets and window.

A kitchen island is attached to the oversized column and to create a distinction from the kitchen cabinets, the millwork has been stained a semitransparent black.

The contemporary look of the Comox redesign includes mid-century furnishings, in modern day colours.

The new washer/dryer closet was located behind the kitchen but to accommodate it the kitchen wall needed to be opened up and bumped out. This is where the shallower than normal pantry is now located.

To save some money the homeowners did the painting themselves, following a colour map I gave them. When the dark grey wall was painted they initially panicked but after seeing it behind the white millwork and over the kitchen cabinets they love it!

Behind the kitchen is the redesigned bathroom. When you enter the room the vanity is on one side and the shower and bathtub are on the other.

The room is neutral except for the vibrant green towels which pick up on the bright green accessories in the kitchen (clock) and dining (piggy bank, file boxes) areas.

Downstairs the galley kitchen is similar to the kitchen upstairs but instead of building bookmatched horizontal edge grain fir doors and drawers, here they are vertical edge grain and instead of stainless steel the appliances are white.

The same directional change of the edge grain fir is repeated in the much smaller downstairs bathroom.

In both the upstairs and the downstairs a durable aged wood look vinyl strip was used on the floors for durability to accommodate wear and tear from both the renters and the homeowners dog.

“I began my Interior Design career apprenticing with an architectural/engineering firm in Vancouver. I have my Associate of Interior Design from Douglas College; I spent an additional 3 years night school at BCIT studying building technology and 3 years night school at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. This combination of training gives me an all round approach to design from technical to creative and it is that all round approach that makes my design capabilities stand out.
