Living through a remodel or renovation 

lindencraft kitchen remodel ideasAs the wife of the Ottawa renovator who owns Lindencraft, I have had to live through the renovation or remodel of every room in my house at least once. You can believe me when I say I am a renovation survivor!

All renovations including kitchens, bathrooms, and finished basements tend to go through several stages. First is the excitement of planning and designing a new and improved space in your house. Then comes doubt and confusion when you have to make countless decisions in quick succession on things like kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, flooring, counters, tile and paint colour.
Next is the actual work stage which is both full of anticipation and worry. Will my choices be the right ones? How will I cook without a kitchen for several weeks? Finally, there is the satisfaction of knowing you have vastly improved your house and your life. The final stage is rewarding and makes up for all the worry and discomfort of the previous stages, but while you are going through the renovation or remodel you often wonder if you will ever get there. I have compiled a number of tips to get you to the final, enjoyable stage with as little stress as possible.

01 First, do your homework and ask questions. Hire an experienced and reputable contractor that you feel comfortable with, like Lindencraft- an Ottawa based renovation contractor rated A+ with the BBB. Check things like Better Business Bureau ratings, and testimonials and choose a contractor that has experience with your type of renovation.

A good home is ever evolving, just like life. It’s more than a physical space, it’s a hub of people and memories such as laughing, cooking, eating, playing and singing, that create the feeling of a home. When moving into a new place or renting properties, it can be hard to make it feel like home, so here are some ideas to get you on the way to creating that warm fuzzy feeling.

In this fast-paced, technology obsessed world we're living in, there’s nothing nicer than having a few vintage pieces in your home. We’ve all had our own little furniture projects I'm sure; doing up an old chair or finding an old piece of furniture and making it look fresh. Reusing, recycling or repurposing items is not only a cheaper and environmentally friendly way of decorating your home, but you’ll end also up with a finished product that will mean so much more to you than something manufactured that anyone can buy. Here are a collection of some of the most original repurposed furniture ideas we’ve seen, to inspire you. You can turn just about anything into a stylish custom piece for your home, you just need a great idea and a little love!

Most of us aren’t lucky enough to consider our workplace a glowing example of innovative interior design. Creative, colourful environments stimulate minds, and people are likely to be more productive - as well as happier - than working in a drab, grey space.  Corporate giants such as Facebook and Google have proven this with unrivalled success despite their unconventional workplaces. Here, we look at six amazing offices around the world that have been inspiring others with their creativity and courage. Who knows, maybe you can even initiate some design changes in your own workplace...

A year later, Anna (not her real name) asked LindenCraft to do her kitchen renovations in her condominium.  This building was made almost circular in shape.  We faced the challenges just as we did with her bathroom and powder room with the same care and attention to detail. 

The Right Angle

Her kitchen was placed on the inner part of an arc creating more of an obtuse angle.  We created the appearance of a 90 degree angle.  To do this, we built the cupboards so that they appeared to make a right angle.  We also built a pull out pantry for Anna as part of the kitchen cabinetry.  Horizontal cupboards which open like a garage door aided in making the lines of the kitchen eye appealing.  Cabinetry which is horizontal presents a more open and spacious feeling to a room.

{jcomments off}Lindencraft, an Ottawa, Ontario based kitchen, bathroom and basement renovation contractor was called in to renovate Anna's (not her real name) bathroom and powder room in her condominium.  This building was one of the first set of condominiums built in the Ottawa area.  Being almost circular in shape is its unique feature.  Each unit is a pie shaped; there are no square corners in any room.  

We were asked to renovate both the powder room and the main bathroom.  The powder room was located on  a landing midway between the main level  and  bedroom level where the main bathroom was locate.  We began with the powder room to ensure one functioning bathroom at a time.
