An Update: Century Home Cultured Stone Renovation

Last year I had posted a sneak peak of one of my projects: a century home renovation with a gorgeous cultured stone feature wall in the kitchen— not something I had done before, but it turned out beautifully! I haven’t had a chance to post the completed pictures, I stumbled upon the finished product in the current issue of Our Homes magazine and thought I’d share.

Taps Toronto – Custom Showroom Fireplace

Anyone who’s ever considered designing, renovating, or upgrading a kitchen, washroom or powder room – and lives in the Toronto (Ontario) area – has surely visited Taps on Lawrence Avenue West for their design decisions and purchases. This stunning two-sided feature wall in their main showroom and window adds a high-end warmth and sophistication, making it easier for designers and homeowners to visualize transforming their own unique spaces. Rick worked with the owners to design and erect this cultured stone showstopper. Take a look at the following photos, and prepare to be inspired! Better yet, head to Taps to have your own in person ‘look and feel’ of the wall – I’ll be happy to help you customize a similar look in your home!

Sneak Peek – Cultured Stone in Kitchen, Powder Room of a Century Home

Here’s a sneak peek at a huge renovation currently in progress. This century home located in Barrie is being updated with a modern kitchen, complete with a feature wall in cultured stone, as well as a powder room off the kitchen with a cultured stone wainscoting design. When the renovation is completed, I’ll post another set of pictures – I’m told this home renovation will also be featured in a magazine and the complete story will appear once completed and published. Stay tuned…..

Cultured stone is not just for exteriors or fireplaces. Make your house unique by adding a cultured stone feature wall. A feature wall can anchor any room and add a professionally designed feel. This technique can be installed in any room, and looks great in bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms and kitchens. In the above photos, the cultured stone wall put the finishing touch on my client’s billiard room. The possibilities are endless!

Cultured stone can be installed over any type of wall with very little prep work. Cultured stone is non-load bearing – nothing structural needs to be added or changed to install a beautiful cultured stone wall! Contact me for a free quote.
