Monarch Puts the Finishing Touches on John & Cindy's "Whole-Home" Transformation

If you've been following our blog over the past few months, you'll know that Monarch Kitchen & Bath Centre has been working diligently on updating the look of John and Cindy's almost 100-year old home located in the Lawrence Park neighbourhood of Toronto.

Monarch also managed the construction of the exterior of John and Cindy's home.

In the picture above, you can see that the exterior of their house is almost complete. "We had to remove the main floor exterior wall to reconfigure for the new location of the windows and doors," says Monarch president Neil Samson. "Brick was an option for reconstruction, however, stucco was used and is a future consideration for the second storey. Once we put flashing at the top, install the lights and repair the deck, then the outside will be finished."

Monarch installed a white kitchen in John and Cindy's Toronto home.

"The stunning white kitchen cabinetry has been installed and we are waiting for the solid surface countertop. Once the countertop is added, we will install all the appliances and backsplash tiles," says Monarch designer Sarah Overholt. "Note, the floor is covered with a protective recyclable cardboard surface. Once all the trades are finished, the floor will be buffed and one more coat of finish will be applied."

The solid oak staircase awaits its final coat.

"The same attention to detail will apply to the custom solid oak staircase," adds Neil. "After the trades are finished, the protective covers will be removed from the stairs and a final coat of finish will applied to both the stairs and the banister."
