Main floor family room. Overlooking spectacular perenial gardens. 2 car garage. Excellent school district.

Visit my website for more information about this listing.

I have known Nutan for quite some time as we are both members of a horticultural society and we both love gardening. In terms of real estate, I liked the list of services she offered and her approach was highly practical and knowledgeable. She seems to be always on an even keel, even when the situation becomes hectic and sometimes it does...Moving is very disruptive in itself, but when you add downsizing, it’s even worse. Also she was always willing to walk the extra mile, just to help you out very concretely. In the whole process, Nutan always had time to come and have a a chat whenever necessary. Thank you so much Nutan, for your tremendous input and your wonderful smile. When things were plainly crazy, it was encouraging.

Storage ideas for

Frustrated by the mishmash of your pots and pans storage? Keep them in good order with these effective storage ideas.

Regularly shaped plates, bowls, and glasses are easy to stack, store, and find in your kitchen cabinets. But pots and pans and their lids come in all shapes and sizes, making them challenging to keep in order and frustrating to find. Put these seven ideas to use for storing pots and pans.

PRINCESS ANNE MANOR

This 4 plus 1 bedroom home has been tastefully renovated and offers approx 4,175 sq ft of functional living space over four sun-drenched floors. Boasts gleaming hardwood throughout, huge floor-to-ceiling windows, multiple walkouts, chef-inspired kitchen with large centre island, combined living/dining rooms with stunning cathedral ceiling, ground floor family room with built-ins, gas fireplace and wet bar, handy laundry/mud room. Enjoy the master retreat with balcony and 3 piece ensuite. Sprawling lower level with oversized rec room and ample storage. Located in the coveted Richview/St. Gregory’s School District. 11 Thornbury Crescent Complete with a picturesque exterior, fully fenced yard and double garage.

Pots & pans on Display If having pots and pans out in the open fits into your kitchen design sensibilities, use these tips to max out your storage. Install a pot rack: Most hang over an island or other open space and typically include both hooks for pots and pans and a shelf that lets you stash less frequently used pieces. They're great for keeping items at hand and easy to find. Add single–bar storage: Similar in look to a towel rack, these single bars use S hooks to hang pots and pans. Hang them on a narrow stretch of wall or in a nook.

UNIONVILLE

This large centre hall home is located on a quiet, tree-lined street and boasts new hardwood on main, bright open concept kitchen/family room at rear overlooking a massive pie-shaped Muskoka-like yard. Main floor office, 2 piece powder room and laundry room with handy side exit. Huge master offers walk-in closet and 5 piece ensuite bath. 3 additional good-sized bedrooms all with double closets. The full basement awaits your personal touch. Family-friendly street mere steps to Lincoln Park. 46 Brooklyn Crescent

Try a pegboard: A simple and inexpensive DIY solution, a pegboard also relies on hooks to hang pots and pans from their handles. Find a spot for shelves: For your smallest of pots and pans you only need about 8 to 12 inches of depth for storage. Think about a narrow shelf, even one across or above a window or on a backsplash.

Hidden storage for pots & pans If you'd rather keep kitchen essentials such as pots and pans out of sight, explore these storage ideas that are hidden behind doors or drawers. Add a vertical rack to a drawer: Tuck an inexpensive piece of hardware such as a manila file organizer (found in office supply stores) inside a drawer to keep lids for pots and pans upright. Upgrade a cabinet shelf with a pullout: If you can't see what's stashed at the very back of a kitchen shelf, you can't get to all your pots and pans. Replace a stationary shelf with a pullout option for easier access. Swap a door for a drawer: Pulling out the whole drawer enables you to get a good view of all its contents from above.

BATH WITH COLOUR Splish Splash your

ver recent years we’ve seen our bathrooms evolve into a space designed more for relaxation and luxury, not just functionality. It doesn’t matter if your bathroom is large or small, or prefer a charming rustic look or something more refined, if you desire a Zen-like oasis or a fun space for the kids, when looking to renovate a bathroom your design should bring together all that is the best of what you desire for your home. With all the beautiful finishes and fittings available to us today, it’s not difficult to envision a bath space that will deliver large on beauty, drama and aesthetics. Colour is always a great element to introduce in to any space, so why should your bathroom be any different. This is not just about adding colour to your room by way of your wall surfaces and accessories, but also with tile selections, fittings and even fixtures. If I’m scaring you into thinking harvest gold toilets have somehow been resurrected…relax, they haven’t! But what has been introduced from luxury British bathing brand, Victoria + Albert is a great selection of external colour tones meant to inspire and coordinate with your bathroom décor to create a style all your own.

Photo Credit: vandabaths.com

In addition to their original high-gloss white ENGLISHCAST® finish, the brand is now offering six distinctive new external finishes including: Gloss Black, Anthracite, Stone Grey, Light Grey, Matte Black and Matte White. Each finish is multi-layered using a special catalyzed paint, and hand polished between applications, resulting in an exceptional depth and lustre that is considerably more durable than hand painted surfaces. These classic shades of grey and warm dark tones are found not only on tubs, but basins and vanity furniture as well providing us with abundant creative inspiration to create wonderful, fun, unique and dramatic bathroom spaces.

The elegant statement made by a gloss black freestanding tub accompanied by a beautiful marble floor, stunning bathroom fittings, a bespoke custom vanity and a soft grey wall tone can be unchallenged. However, the appeal of a stone grey tub and basin blended with reclaimed wood for a fantastic vanity can create an edgier look to your relaxed rustic designs. Or perhaps your thoughts are more in-line with creating a fun bathroom for the kids, a matte black tub can be a wonderful starting point for an explosion of colour that will create an entertaining bath space customized just for the little ones in your family. Whatever your personal style and direction for your bathroom renovation, we can undoubtedly agree that

injecting colour into your space by way of a tub or basin can definitely be rewarding. A statement piece such as this can set you on your way to creating a dramatic bathroom of your dreams. Remember: • When working with coloured fixtures, ensure you have a clear vision of the overall finished design look and it’s balanced. • When in doubt, look to working with a professional to maximum the design space possibilities.

Custom CABINETRY with a sense of style

20


As a designer, there are two renovation

requests that I get time and time again. The first is betterfunctioning storage systems, and the second is custom elements. When you combine the two, the result is pure magic. Now, you might not think that custom cabinets are particularly exciting, but don't be fooled! The effects of a well-planned, efficient and clean home will make your heart skip a beat. While custom cabinetry is a big ask in small spaces, the trend that is quickly gaining traction in homes of every size. The trend is all about making the most of every inch in your home, and doing it in a way that speaks to your unique style sensibilities But before making a big investment in custom cabinets, you need to determine how your space will be used.

Some areas of the home are made expressly for storage. In closets or pantries, stuff rules the realm and it's okay to adopt a more utilitarian design. In these spaces, function almost always come firsts. Other rooms such as the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room are used primarily as living/ working spaces with storage playing a supporting role. This is where fashion needs to be given a little extra love.

Here are some of my favourite trends in custom cabinetry, that will to take your storage system from "just practical" to "just... WOW." Custom colour When it comes to geometric shapes and patterns, a little can go a long way, so you want to ensure the pattern isn't competing with other elements in the space. Incorporate this trend without going overboard by using accents.

Custom dimensions Okay, extra-high cabinets aren't exactly a new trend, but there's certainly renewed interest in efficiently using every available inch of your home. This includes the wall space right up to the ceiling, or custom corner cabinets that tuck infrequently used or seasonal items out of the way, yet easily at hand. >>>

home dĂŠcor

Open and closed shelving This will allow you to tailor your storage system and aesthetic to your personal storage style. What do I mean? Some people naturally tern to be messy and could benefit more from cabinets with doors that conceal the clutter. Meanwhile, a collector may appreciate open shelving to display his or her favourite finds.

"Smart" storage No conversation about "home" in 2018 would be complete without the obligatory tech topic, and custom cabinetry is no different. A hot trend is to incorporate charging and docking stations into your cabinetry, to eliminate countertop clutter in the form of phones, tablets, laptops, cables and cords. Beyond the basics, think wireless devices built right in, like speakers or a television!

Custom cabinetry can help you make the most of your home. When planning your storage system, think fashion and function right off the bat. After all, that is one of the benefits of creating custom versus buying a ready-made product off the shelf. You get what you really want. Custom elements for the home will cost more, but when done properly your custom cabinets will pay off tenfold.
