Winnipeg Home Renovations


1980s Modern Home Renovations by Sakiyama Construction
 

1980s Modern Home

The owners were attracted to the exterior and basic layout of this home but knew that the interior needed to be brought up to date. Sakiyama Construction together with Michelle Weibe (W Designs) developed a plan that modernized the entire interior and elevated the level of finishes to a high standard. The changes started with the new front entrance door with art glass inserts (left).

The original décor consisted of faux colonial trim work as shown in front foyer above. The new design brings a modern look to this staircase. Note the cherry wood pillars with stainless steel trims. Plain ceramic tile flooring at the entrance was replaced with a natural slate. The cherry wood/slate theme is echoed in other aspects of the renovation.
