In this cool Ancaster home, the owners wanted to give their upstairs a major facelift. We kicked things off by dealing with the seriously outdated golden oak staircase. Sanded it down and matched the color to the new white oak engineered hardwood that’s all over the place now. The railings got a modern upgrade too – black solid wrought iron spindles and a sleek rectangular handrail.

Upstairs was a whole different story. We said goodbye to the old flooring, tiles, vanities, doors, trim, fixtures, and closet organizers. Then came the puzzle of putting everything back together. Bedrooms and the hallway got hooked up with clean 7″ white oak engineered hardwood.
In the shared bathroom, we dropped in a new 60″ white vanity rocking two three-piece faucets. We played around with the lighting to make it match up perfectly with the sinks. The hangout spot got a new entertainment setup, and we patched up a bunch of drywall spots.

Now, the main bedroom was a real project. We tore out the closets, moved walls around, threw in some KN Crowder catch n close barn doors, and even had to frame in a new bathroom because the old one was wide open (talk about awkward!). The wall between the ensuite bathroom and the bedroom now holds a gorgeous 50″ Napoleon fireplace and their TV.

And the ensuite, that’s where things got fun. 110″ Double vanities with a makeup counter, heated floors everywhere with a WiFi-controlled thermostat, a big standing shower with a rain head faucet, heated floors and a seat, a two-person infrared sauna (yup, you heard right), a freestanding tub with killer views, and a framed-in water closet for some privacy (because, seriously, the old setup let you see someone on the throne from the bedroom – yikes!). Welcome home!
