After being in this condo for 10 years, the owner had seen other tenants renew and revive their kitchens. The dated floors and builder grade cabinetry needed an infusion of life and they didn’t fit her tastes or lifestyle. Even the functionality that seemed ‘quirky’ in the past, had long since lost their charm.


The client wanted a kitchen not quite modern in style, yet more progressive than contemporary. 

"Just completed phase 1 of renovations with Refined Renovations and about to start phase 2! They are thoughtful and innovative in their design, with beautiful results. The whole team - from initial design to the contractors - are attentive and respectful. I enjoyed working with them immensely!"


Crisp clean lines, texture and cool gray tones with ever so slight striations in charcoal created depth and an artistic feel. 

Subtleties of texture and color were added in the design through the following: 

  • Etched and foil backing on the glass backsplash tile 
  • Cambria Quartz Fieldstone countertops 
  • Brushed brass custom hood
  • Black matte cabinet hardware 

Erie St Condo

Finish Materials:

Virginia Tile Backsplash

Vent-A-Hood custom range hood

Black matte cabinet hardware

Brizio Faucet


The custom designed and fabricated metal work at the island is stunning. Smooth and matte black, it frames the island, casts subtle shadows, and lends a hint of an industrial feel.

Custom made end-grain walnut countertops soften the aesthetic and provide physical and visual comfort. Paired with the Brizo faucet and decorative lighting, the neo angle shape and matte black finish punctuate the design giving the space a considered feel.
