Family Living at Its Best

Welcome to the home of Mark & Chantal Demerchant, Saint John NB.

With two young children at home, Mark & Chantal were ready to re-design their home to better accommodate their family needs.

Originally the toy room was at one end of the home, accessible from the kitchen by walking down a long hallway.  By opening the shared wall between the kitchen and the toy room, family living is instantly achieved! Mom and Dad can be working in the kitchen, while the children are within arms reach of their toy room.

Let’s take a look at the progression of opening up between the two rooms:

Before.  The toy room is just behind the fridge, on the other side of the wall, but not yet accessible:

Designs to open up between rooms but cutting an opening in the wall:

Demolition, hole has been cut, and cabinets removed!: 


Almost Ready for the finishing touches:

After.  Check out the beautiful transition between rooms:

And of course, two happy little faces:


Now that we’ve seen the progression of the opening, let’s take a look at the other before and after shots of the renovation project.

This is another angle looking towards the refrigerator.  Remember, the toy room is directly behind the fridge:

Below you can see looking from the toy room area towards the kitchen.  By removing the peninsula shelving, the space really opens up:

One more view towards the sink area.  The light from the toy room is now shared with the kitchen, creating a beautifully bright space:
