Recently I’ve had the pleasure of working on a fantstic loft in probably my favourite neighbourhood in Toronto, Liberty Village.
Liberty Village is an amazing development on reclaimed railway lands with new condos and lofts, old converted warehouses and tons of shopping and dining.
This is my second of three projects in the area and hopefully I’ll be able to do a lot more.
This loft is an older one, a bit tired and run down and needed some updating bad. The flooring and kitchen cabinets were a golden oak reminiscent of the 80s, the bedroom carpet was tired and worn, the bathrooms were in desperate need of a makeover and the bedroom closet was just awful.
An awkward L-shape with a bunch of random coat hooks all over the place. Not the best use of space in a storage challenged loft. You can see in this photo that the carpet has been replaced with a vintage looking dark oak floor.
This closet began like all the others by tearing out the existing shelving and hooks and patching and painting the walls giving us an empty space to work with.
This closet was a particular challenge not only because of the narrow, awkward L shape, but also because of the low ceiling with two access panels.
We bought a stock system from Closetmaid and then had to cut everything down to fit both vertically and horizontally.
The result is a closet that while tight is very functional with tons of storage for both hanging and folded clothing.
