A refreshed home in Ayr

Not all interior remodels are the same, and each comes with it’s own scope, nuances and features.  This cozy and functional Ayr, Ontario remodel includes aimed to make the home friendlier for entertaining, and a greatly improved entryway.

Starting at the front door, the bright new entryway features a convenient custom-made bench to help manage the ins-and-outs of a busy family.   A durable wood seat and under-seat drawers leave ample room for hats, gloves and scarves.    A plank wall supporting a shelf & 4 coat hooks ensures that coats are organized and easy to access.  To handle all the dirt, slush, water & punishment of a busy family, herringbone large-format tile is used to keep things durable, easy-to-clean and looking sharp.

Even the dog has a spot at the front door, with a handy alcove for his food & water to protect it from accidental kicks and spills, with a storage self above for things like leashes and dog toys.


The front foyer also includes a relocated laundry room behind handsome doors & a closet for coats, and other seasonal gear.  A handsome and modern light fixture creates a bright and airy feeling for family & guests alike.

The family room got an even larger re-imagining, with a focus on entertainment and and entertaining. A new gas fireplace was installed with veneer brick underneath a crisp white shiplap wall, smartly accented by a beautiful walnut mantle.  The 65″ TV is recessed so it sits flush with the wall and a handy hidden compartment houses a PS5 & Nintendo switch to satisfy those family gaming nights.

We designed and built a handsome wet bar complete with a custom cabinets & square bottle-rack bench.  a built-in beverage fridge and an under-mount sink add storage & utility to the wet-bar.  A handsome granite countertop with a leathered texture adds a natural and upscale look & feel.  Up top, a stunning 2 inch, live-edge walnut bar top adds a lovely finish to the wet-bar.

Behind the bar you will find custom milled walnut floating shelves with integrated LED lights and a wall sconce to display art.
