Project Overview

The consistent theme for this whole house renovation was MODERN. The scope of work included the main floor: kitchen, bathroom, and living spaces; the upper level: 2 piece bath with bedrooms and hall; and the basement: entertaining area and full bathroom.

Though the footprint of Steve's small kitchen remained the same, the renovation included removing a section of wall by the south end, and this considerably improved the openness of the area. The custom polished concrete countertops and raised shelf on the peninsula are an eye catching feature of the kitchen.

The main bathroom present challenges as well because of space, but the addition of a custom sized vanity made it work. The bathroom features a modern porcelain tile design featuring a custom concrete window sill and Kohler shower tile.

In addition, the basement features a full spa bath with ledgestone, and new engineered hardwood flooring. All new windows and doors plus bamboo flooring were installed through the main levels, and spray foam insulation.

Client Testimonial

1950's House Transformation to Modern Open Concept

"I initially hired Ashton Renovations with high expectations based on many positive reviews from previous customers and they didn't disappoint. The attention to detail was excellent; they pointed out mistakes, or shortcuts that other contractors had made, and worked to make them right. They organized subcontractors well and ensured that all the work got done properly. Communication was excellent; they showed up on days when they said they'd show up and they were always on time. They used a combination of emails and phone calls to ensure that I was kept informed on all progress. The scope of the work included: design and drafting, a complete kitchen replacement, new bedrooms, new flooring, staircase refinishing, paint, doors and trim, a sun tunnel installation and pot lights throughout.

The final product was top notch and they were happy to return after-the-fact to fix up any issues that I had found. Working with Ashton Renovations was a very pleasant experience and I highly recommend them for the quality of their renovations. Mark Ashton and Ron Sanders are skilled contractors that care about doing a good job and doing it right."
