Income Property typically has us creating 2 units in a previously single family home. We add an income suite, as the name suggests! This episode was exciting from a design perspective, because it was an investment property and kept as a single family home. What that meant was all above-grade, and more elevated finishes to attract a high-end renter. Room to stretch our designer legs!
The kitchen is the show-stopper, here. Melissa worked with IKEA Abstrakt white cabinets, to create a custom kitchen on a budget. The counters are a really beautiful crushed glass composite that’s extremely durable and has tonnes of visual depth. By using an inexpensive 2×8 white tile, in a random pattern below the wood shelf and vertical straight pattern above, it added a great contemporary look, with a bit of texture and interest. The floating shelves are standard IKEA oak butcher block counters, cut to size and mounted on hidden, Lee Valley brackets.
