Bellwoods Beauty! Amazing entire home transformation. Designer finishes, no expense spared! This is a unique opportunity for a home in the heart of Toronto.

The spacious main floor features handscraped hardwood floors throughout, an impressive fireplace with floor to ceiling tile imported from Spain, custom foyer built in storage and main floor laundry. The custom kitchen features a huge 13ft island with Cambria Quartz top and waterfall finish on both sides, a large walk in pantry, and high end Kitchenaid appliances that include a built in microwave and 36″ commercial gas range. Upgrades in the kitchen include dovetail drawers with soft close, all soft close doors, a custom garbage/recycle center, custom pullouts and under cabinet lighting! The kitchen opens to the dining area, with lots of natural light.

The master suite is another element that sets this house above all others. Gorgeous double-sink ensuite vanity, linen closet storage and a large balcony with amazing views of the Toronto skyline.

The finished basement offers lots of options. There is a kitchen rough-in, a secondary laundry room, cold cellar, beautifully finished 3 piece washroom, ample storage space and separate entrance, so it could easily be an apartment, or in the current configuration it is extra living space.

A brand new Lochinvar Combi/Boiler system has been installed for heating efficiency and to eliminate the need for a hot water tank! A Mitsubishi ductless air conditioning unit will keep you cool all summer long!
All windows, insulation, doors, roof, plumbing and electrical have all been replaced and Permits were used for the entire project.

Landscaped deck in the backyard, with BBQ gasline connection will be perfect for entertaining this summer! The double car garage has hydro and ample storage.

Queen’s Quay Penthouse

Categories: Design, Renovation

Queen's Quay Penthouse

This penthouse on Queen’s Quay was bursting at the seams with potential. In its original state (with peach ceramic tiles and carpeting that was typical at that time) this 3 bedroom condo was in need of complete modernization. The homeowner’s requests were “We like modern, we like traditional, we need four bedrooms.” With that, we accepted the challenge and fused together different elements throughout the home to create an elegant, harmoniously balanced space with breathtaking views second to none. Rumour has it that this is one of the only penthouses in that building with a full view of the lake directly from the kitchen area.

Testimonial

Queens Quay Renovation Project – “We were looking to modernize our condo. However, we do not know where and how to start. Elysha and her team at Trifektah conceived a very beautiful design for the whole place. During the project, Trifektah responded promptly to our further inputs and took great care to ensure that all goes according to plan. We are very satisfied in the way Trifektah handled the project from beginning to the end. Highly recommended.”

Testimonial

Major Home renovation – “We had Trifektah renovate our kitchen, ensuite and main floor of our home. We are very happy with the results throughout. Elysha was excellent to work with and actually came through less then her quote despite some inevitable additions and changes as we progressed. I have no problem recommending Elysha and her crew to anyone looking for reliable and high quality work that comes in on budget.”

John Street Residence

John Street Residence - Renovation

We transformed this older house into a new home providing new custom cabinetry, counter-tops, and backsplash tiles in the kitchen, opening up the stairwell while adding a new railing, adding a new laundry area, and reworking the bathroom with a new tub/shower, toilet, and vanity, new bathroom floor and shower tile, in addition to raised bathroom ceiling providing a more airy feel to the space.

Testimonial

Old House Full Reno – Kitchen, 2 Baths, Floors, Windows, Roof – “I purchased an older home that needed major updating and work to start immediately so that I could move in. Rob from Hampton Kitchens recommended Elysha with Trifektah. She and her team were a godsend because I was feeling completely overwhelmed. With competence and enthusiasm Elysha organized the flow of work, tracked the budget and assisted me with design choices to create a cohesive look. I especially appreciated the ‘can do’ flexibility and positive attitude of the team when addressing several unexpected, yet necessary repairs. I would not have a comfortable home now, without the diligence of Elysha and her team. Thank you”

Oak Ridge Residence

Oak Ridge Residence - Renovation

We designed and installed a timeless yet functional kitchen with a large sweeping island, and removed the kitchen bulkhead and relocated of main plumbing stack. New purpleheart flooring spliced in to match original was required after we removed the fireplace and installed a new load-bearing flush-mount beam in the living room area opening up the space dramatically. The main bathroom was completely redone with a custom bathroom vanity with linen pantry, and new bathroom floor and wall tiles.

Testimonial

Home Renovation, Design, Project Management – “This past summer we underwent a major renovation to our home including new kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, updating family room with custom built-in cabinet/bookshelf and fireplace, removal of a double sided gas fireplace between the living and dining rooms, refinishing of hardwood floors and painting throughout the house.

We met with several kitchen companies and chose Hampton Kitchens. The reason we chose Hampton Kitchens for our project was Elysha. Elysha came to our home for a consultation and from that visit we knew we would chose Hampton Kitchens because of her. Elysha’s company Trifektah Home Solutions took on all other aspects of our renovation as well as Elysha designing and overseeing our kitchen renovation.

Elysha was very attentive to our needs, took our ideas and turned them into a beautiful home. Elysha managed all the trades to ensure that all timelines were met and we were totally satisfied with all the work done.

I cannot say enough about Trifektah Home Solutions – Elysha. I would highly recommend her company for any renovation needs you may have, from large to small. You will not be disappointed.”
