North Vancouver Makeover

A full cosmetic makeover transforms a craftsman home in Canyon Heights


Never underestimate the power of paint and a cosmetic refresh! This craftsman-style home was built in 2005, and although well loved and maintained, it was definitely looking dated, dark, and in need of a serious refresh in order to appeal to new buyers. When we were first called in to assess staging the home, we strongly recommended a total repaint in a light palette, including painting out most of the amber-hued wood finishes on cabinetry and other millwork, which was overwhelming the house. The homeowners and realtor were truly on side with the idea, so we designed a colour palette of off-whites and neutrals, with a lovely soft grey finish for all that wood cabinetry in the kitchen, baths and built-ins. Other cosmetic updates included new light fixtures, new carpeting for some rooms without hardwood floors, and filling in two wall niches in the living room. Nothing else was changed.

What a difference! Once all the cosmetic updates were completed, we came in to stage the house in an eclectic, sophisticated style, and it looked and felt like a brand-new home!
