Chair Affair 2015

On Friday evening we were sponsoring Furniture Bank's annual Chair Affair auction event at the International Centre by the Toronto Airport.  We were introduced to the Chair Affair by one of our colleague's Cori Halpern who was one of the headline designer participating in the event.

Below is a picture of Cori and Dave with Cori's chair which she designed for the event and was auctioned off to help provide furniture for three families in need.  Great to giveback to the community.

Shower Fixtures

We did this bathroom renovation and configured all the water accessories including double built-in ceiling rainfall showerheads, wall body jets, hand held shower faucet, linear drain.  This shower has all the coolest shower fixtures out there on the market today...

Linear Bathroom Drain

We were able to incorporate this linear bathroom drain into our latest shower renovation project. The linear drain allows a top section of the drain to incorporate the same stone/tile finish as the surrounding area.   As you can see in the pictures below, we finished off our project using a dark grey porcelain tile for the top of this linear drain installation.   We feel this provide a sleek squared off look for any modern bathroom shower renovation.

TCC Project Control Book

We create a custom project control book called the 'TCC Project Control Book' for our larger renovation projects to ensure all parties are on the same page when it comes to project execution and deliverables.   We are only one of a few renovation companies in Toronto that implement formal project management methodologies and best practices when it comes to structured delivery of residential home renovation projects.

This approach a triple win for everyone...

Our clients love it, as it keeps them informed and they appreciate the extra effort as enforces our motto around clear communication with our clients.  Our vendors, trades and partners love it as it has specific layouts from the engineers along with architectural drawings with all the appropriate measurements....and we love it as it really helps to mitigate risk and mis-understandings and helps to accelerate project delivery to get our clients enjoying their completed renovation that much sooner.

Here are some pictures from one of our TCC Project Control Books

Toronto Glass Shower Enclosures

We have recently been doing a lot of glass shower enclosures in Toronto over the past couple of years.   These glass showers enclosures make a tonne of sense when it comes to designing a bathroom with a inset tub that provides a nice clean, crisp look with the seamless glass and yet a very functional design to contain water from sneaking out of the shower.

Here is another job completed from last week.  Let us know your thoughts about this project!

Toronto Bathroom Remodel

Custom Furniture Hutch

This custom furniture by Toronto Custom Concepts was designed to provide additional storage in the corners of this room.    Our client wanted to have a stylist custom hutch on each side of room flanking the corners while accenting the centre bay window.   The contrast of light passing thru the white bay window along with the darker finish of the two corner hutch units is very dramatic when you enter the room.

Toronto Custom FurnitureToronto Custom Hutch

Toronto Cabinet Makers

Each hutch is all wood construction with double 1/2 glass cabinet door fronts to go along with the 3 tiers of glass shelving.   The lower part of the hutch has two full extending pull out drawers with a set of closed panel cabinet below it.

You can see the dark crown moulding integrates nicely with the dark crown moulding in the room to provide a nice continuity effect of bring everything together in the room.  The units also match nicely with the dark hardwood flooring.

Toronto Stone Fireplace Remodel

This stone fireplace renovation project led by Toronto Custom Concepts was part of an initial phase of an entire home renovation project.   The old fireplace was scaled back to its bare bones.  The traditional fireplace mantel, surround, facing and hearth were all carefully removed to allow for the transformational remodel to begin.

The process first step of the fireplace remodel was to plan out the design to plan for a rich textured effect using large stacked stones in a random fitted pattern.   Our clients wanted four staggered wood shelves running vertically up the fireplace.   The stone fireplace was designed with two focused potlights accenting the top wood mantel shelves.  An embedded niche has been incorporated in the centre of the fireplace between the first and second tier of wood mantels.
Toronto Fireplace Renovation
Toronto Fireplace Renovation

The stone is a mountain cultured stone laid with a staggered alternating light and dark colour pattern.  The mantels are top grade maple and the hearth is a Wiarton natural stone.

The fireplace stones running diagonally up the sloped ceiling provide nice continuity to the eye especially with the massive size of this family room.   The fireplace is 22 feet high to be proportional to the rest of the open concept family room.

The crews did a great job on this one!

Coffered Ceiling Repair Toronto

We recently completed a renovation to a beautiful coffered ceiling in a library that suffered some water damage.  As we have designed and built many custom coffered and moulded ceiling from scratch we took this one knowing full well that the detail wood working and colour in the ceiling needed to be perfect to avoid noticing any renovation work...I would say mission accomplished.

Textured Custom Mirror Frame

We did this custom framing job in a basement bathroom remodel to provide an additional accent to one of the bathroom mirrors.  As you can see we incorporated a touch of textured cloth with an embedded LED potlight to provide a complementing accent to the black trim and moulding in the room.  Just another simple detail.  Let us know if you like it...

Toronto Bathroom Remodel

This Toronto bathroom remodel project included updating this bathroom to a more current style.  We retrofitted the bathroom shower from a wall mounted shower faucet to a new center-mounted rain shower head.  The shower flooring was new random pebble floor tiles.   We love the seamless glass shower with half wall and white quartz jams accented by modern chrome hinges.

Toronto Bathroom Tile Installation

Completing this bathroom tile installation by TCC really showcases a variety of different tile materials, sizes and geometric shapes all coming together to produce a unique shower experience.

As you can see, we used long narrow glass tiles running north/south on the back accent wall.  The 45 degree wall that houses the shower hardware fixtures is finished with beautiful porcelain rectangular tiles and the floor is an assembly of square shower tiles.

Undermount Bathroom Lighting

This undermounted lighting accent which we incorporated underneath a mounted ledge which was running parallel across a large section of the bathroom mirror provides a bountiful amount of additional lighting for our client's master bathroom.

One of the greatest features of this lighting feature is the fact that you do not need to flick-a-switch or turn a dial to get it to turn on.  All that is need is to simply wave or generate some sort of movement underneath it and MAGICALLY it turns on!

Thin Potlights

Super thin pot lights have changed the game when it comes to reducing the minimal size needed for pot light housing above the ceiling.  These super thin LED lights are great in tighter spaces and for small rooms.  Older pot light housing mechanisms were large and clunky.   Our current project using these pots will allow us to provide our clients with additional usage space due to reduced bulkhead sizes and higher ceilings.

Shower Corner Seating

Seating in the shower just got a whole lot easier with this integrate corner seating area within the glass shower area for one of ours clients.  As you can see the shower seating blends in nicely and does not take up a lot of room.   It blends in nicely with the alternating porcelain tile pattern running vertically up the wall.  Hope you like it!

We completed this home renovation to open up a wall that was carrying a load was another great project completed by TCC which included engineering and architectural drawings, city inspections and it included us installing a huge 30 foot structural beam across an entire cross section of this beautiful home in a secluded wooded area in west Toronto.

As another personal touch for a custom bathroom renovation we did last month for a high profile client, we included some custom heat registers to match the contemporary style of their new bathroom cabinetry.   The register was lasered from the same porcelain tiles that we laid across their bathroom floors and shower walls.

Sometimes it is the little things that make a world of difference :)
