Trimming Your Custom Built Dream Home

You have finally decided on the neighbourhood that your Dream Home will be built. Is it in Eatonville, or Princess Margaret?   Will you decide to be near the Humberview Plaza at Royal York and Dundas or closer to the subway access at Islington or Kipling?

The house that you purchased was repainted and staged for sale, a bit of waste and shame given that the old house will be levelled and rebuilt with your Dream Home.  When you commited to the purchase you didn't even go inside, you walked the property and looked at the majestic oak trees in the backyard and wondered if it would survive the reconstruction. Will the yard allow you that outside fireplace as the family gathering point on chilly evenings or entertaining?

You already have plans in mind and have been in conversations with the Custom Home builder of your choice to finalize the floorplans and materials list. There are literally thousands of decisions to be made that cannot be undone just by changing your mind.

We realize that the focal point for family lifestyle is the kitchen, but the IMPACT point for first impressions is the front hall and foyer and the display of the centre staircase.  How will you accent the open wood stairs? Have you decided on marble? Will you decide on white risers and a dark tread (steps)  or will you you leave that natural wood stained finish shine?  Have you consider a wrought iron staircase?

The best display that accents the foyer is the wrought iron railing that wraps the stairs and protects your family. The wrought iron work is a statement about yourself and your taste, your achievements and a compliment to the stylings of the house; whether they be ornate, olde world or contemporary.

Alex Gorgiovski from B O creative Steel (here in Toronto)  said "The staircase and the railings make a statement about the house and it's owners."   "The railings can be made to frame a Juliette Balcony from a second level that frames the foyer visually or run from the upper level direct down to the lower level as a continuation of the same theme."  He continued to add that repairs and restoration work was also available from his olde world trained craftsmen to expertly match existing work to make repairs.

Alex said "We specialize in wrought iron staircases, railings, gates, and fences. Everything we sell, we make right here in Toronto."  If you have any questions you can reach Alex at the office, 416 335 3409 or cell 647 407 0034

If you are considering the renovation of the interior of your home, take advantage of the home renovation tax credit; that you investigate Alex's catolgue of available railings and decorative peices. You may find something that accentuates your home far from the ordinary.
