Case Study:

Churchill Court, Saskatoon

Challenges

Originally built in the late 60’s early 70’s style of home that frequently had compartmentalized rooms, this home was prime for an update that would transform it to a shared and open space.

Solution

Remove dividing walls, update with a timeless color scheme and create storage space the provides easy access, ample storage and organization.
To accommodate the stature of the family, an increased height of the island by 2” provides less back strain when working at the counter.
The under mount double sink in a quartz counter provides easy clean up from any meal preparation or dinner party.
The dark stained cabinetry in the dining area adds a nice contrast indicating a change of room function but also adding a serviceable counter for food to rest for times when families gather for special times or just simply to show off beautiful flowers that have been cut from the back yard flower garden.
From the moment you enter the home you feel part of the family experience whether you might be preparing a snack to be shared or you gather around the raised island to see what’s being prepared for dinner.
The complement of warm and cool tones in this new space help melt away all of the day’s challenges and welcomes you to relax.
