Imagine waking up on a Friday morning and starting your day with a shower in your luxurious ensuite bathroom. You then make your way to your spacious, walk-in closet to pick out your clothes. Everything – from clothing, to shoes and accessories – is organized amongst the custom built-in shelving. You can see everything you own, and getting ready is a breeze.
You head downstairs. Your partner has already made the coffee and you enjoy your breakfast together at the large, quartz-topped kitchen island. The sun streams through the large windows, flooding your open-concept kitchen, living room and dining area with natural light.
Your partner leaves for work and you make your way to your home office, as you’re working from home today. You open the window, letting the fresh spring breeze blow in.
In the afternoon, a client drops in for a meeting and says that your house is beautiful. She’s been there before, but can’t help but admire it each time she visits. She tells all her friends how incredible it is (we’re not exaggerating – this does happen to our clients!). You stop to appreciate the layout of the space — having the office on the main level means you don’t have to bring clients upstairs to a second-floor office (and helps you avoid all the last minute tidying that might entail).
Later that evening, you have friends over for dinner. You whip up dinner with your partner while your guests relax in the living room. The open layout means you’re still part of the conversation. One of the guests brings his drink to the kitchen island and helps you chop vegetables — there’s plenty of counter space to share. Your favourite music streams through the speakers in the ceiling.
