Have You Ever Done A Renovation That Was A Nautical Theme?


Have you ever renovated a home in a nautical theme?


Yes, in an older bungalow that sits on the shores of Georgian Bay in the Georgian Peaks Ski Club. We renovated the bungalow from an out dated eighties theme to a fresh new nautical theme that was more functional and fit the families busy life style.

Take a look at the link below, the pictures show the nautical theme that the interior designer was working toward;

The main bathroom was completely gutted back to the studs, the bathtub was surrounded with back painted glass in white that gave the shower a more modern theme instead of the standard tiles along the back-wall. White marble was used around the end-walls where the taps protruded out of the wall.

The ensuite master bathroom was renovated in relatively the same theme being white marble. The floor and the shower walls were all completed with white Carrera marble. There was even large marble slabs used as wainscoting around the perimeter of the bathroom walls. The cabinetry was all dark hardwood giving a very striking and rich look to the bathroom with marble used for the counter tops as well.

All the updated bathrooms where installed with electric in-floor to keep those toes warm on cold nights in the winter.

In the master bedroom the room was completely redone with new drywall, trim and windows. Custom cabinetry was installed in the wall opposite the bed to hold clothes and an entertainment unit. A new window seat was hand built at the end of the room giving a comfy place to sit and look out on beautiful Georgian Bay. There was a custom make-up area built into the opposite end of the master bedroom with a mirror and a sitting area with a marble top.

The family room was refurbished with new custom cabinetry on each side of the existing stone fireplace that holds the entertainment unit, books and other knickknacks. The perimeter of the room was all windows and doors, some were replaced (the main doors) and others where re-trimmed and painted. The new doors look out on to the rolling waves of Georgian bay. The fireplace was updated with a new wooden hardwood mantle.

The other bedrooms were updated with new flooring and new hardwood trim.

The access to the bedrooms was given more privacy from the noisier parts of the house with a sliding barn-door style track and door that creates a private space of two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Overall the theme of the home makes living on the water a wonderful place.
