Condo Makeover: A Dated Space Is Revamped For Modern Family Life

Designer Karin Bennett worked alongside contractor Marino Scopelleti of Sunnylea Homes to transform a family of four’s dated condo into a modern oasis. In the new kitchen, floor-to-ceiling flat cabinets painted in Benjamin Moore’s Cabbage Patch add depth, while hits of wood and marble-look quartz create a striking contrast. See how the cramped dining space was converted into a gorgeous banquette with custom storage and statement lighting. In the living room, a vertical white oak channeled wall with an integrated TV and electric fireplace creates an eye-catching display.

  1. Thank you for finally doing another condo! Especially a more typical one. Especially in Vancouver with the housing crisis, more and more of us are living this way. It’s amazing to learn from you and feel included. 💚💙

  6. This was such a clever use of space. Absolutely every detail was awesome 👏🏼 🤩

  7. This condo looks really warm and modern – sometimes you get one but not the other. Also, this looks totally livable for a family of 4 with all that storage. Looks amazing!

  8. House & Home never disappoints! This is one of the most fabulous condo makeovers I've ever seen! The homeowners must be ecstatic with the results. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous home tour!

  9. It's a very big transfornation. The room is still light and opened. I like the cabinets in the kitchen. Please show the people only at the beginning of the video. We would like to focus on that wonderful design. Thank you🌹

  10. Beautiful design. The effect is serene and expansive. Appears to be for a different sort of family than was indicated by the before photos. After the carefully selected decorative staging pieces are removed, and the owners move back in with all their stuff and living habits, this place is going to be a wreck again.

  11. Wow well done 👏 👏 👏 👏 one of the best condo redo excellent job and well thought out plan ❤
