Reno expert, contractor and builder Dave Jurinic from Toronto Custom Concepts, talks about his beautiful renovation of a condo!
CANADIAN HOME TRENDS CAN YOU TELL US A BIT ABOUT THIS PROJECT?
DAVE JURINIC The homeowner spends half of the year in Argentina in a very modern home and wanted an updated, modern look for his Downtown Toronto condo as well. The goal was to create a simple, modern space that was welcoming and luxurious.
CHT TELL US ABOUT THE KITCHEN’S DESIGN.
DJ We chose a modern, flat panel slab door style for the kitchen, carrying the cabinets all the way to the ceiling. The doors feature touch to open hardware to keep the look clean and modern without visible hardware.
CHT CAN YOU OFFER WORDS OF WISDOM TO READERS LOOKING TO RE-DESIGN THEIR CONDO?
DJ Renovating a condo is different than a detached house. This condo was the last suite at the end of a long hallway and required a lot of pre-planning to accommodate limited parking, working hour restrictions and elevator use rules.
CHT WHERE DID YOU SAVE AND WHERE DID YOU SPLURGE?
DJ We saved by reusing existing furniture as much as possible which freed up extra budget to splurge on high-end appliances!
DAVID’S FAVORITE DETAILS: My favorite design element is the iRobot’s custom house. It even knows to go there when it’s done its job!!! I also love that the faucet and light fixtures in the bathroom are protruding from the mirror.
