Small Condo-Kitchen Reno Bedford NS Part 1

When my mother relocated to Halifax for her job two years ago, she decided to buy a small condo in the heart of Bedford, NS.  The 1000 SQF condo offered spectacular views of the beautiful Bedford Basin, but the space was in need of a serious make over.  Here’s how we went from drab to fab with the help of some top notch professionals.


The kitchen was small, dark, and uninviting.  The condo was 27 years old and so was the kitchen!  The dishwasher was original to the unit and didn’t even open all the way, do to the depth of the fridge. 

Before Kitchen

With the help of I Love Renovations, Cabinet Works Ltd, and Habitat for Humanity, we transformed this tired looking space into a bright and cozy little kitchen.

Did you know that Habitat for Humanity will come to your house, tear out your old kitchen and cart it away at no cost to you?  WELL THEY DO!  They will then recycle the products in their RESTORE .  This will save you money as the contractor you hire won’t have to do it.  Chris MacMullin, co-owner and contractor with I Love Renovations told me about this service.  I was so impressed by Chris and his crew, I have referred and used them for other projects since then. 

Habitat for Humanity

When it came to the actual kitchen design, Norm and Nina from Cabinet Works Ltd. were great to work with.  Norm came out to the site to take measurements and Nina did the kitchen design.  Once the design was approved the fun began!  We got to make our selections for cabinetry, countertop, and hardware, plus any upgraded features such as lighting and storage.  From there, Mom and I headed to Ceratec in Dartmouth and selected our tile and backsplash with the expert advise of Ingrid.  Now there’s a lady who knows her stuff! 


The space went to dark and dingy to bright and breathtaking!  We are so happy with all the expert advise and professional workmanship we received from our selected renovation team.  As a REALTOR®, I know how important referrals are; that’s why I am happy to endorse all four companies.
