Well, it used to be my ugliest apartment. Indeed, when I purchased the Annex property in 1997 the apartment was vacant and my wife suggested that it could be put to more appropriate use for bike storage. Nonetheless, it got a modest reno at the time but that was eighteen years ago and a refresh was warranted.
The apartment got new paint, and new flooring throughout (including bamboo laminate in the bedsitting room). The apartment got new baseboards, and the bedsitting room got new track lighting utilizing LED bulbs on a dimmer. The kitchen was also converted to LEDs. The kitchen cabinet doors were replaced, with the glossy "Abstrak" doors that have been installed in most Grace's Places kitchen in recent years.
Apologies to those prospective tenants who are on my waitlist, however the apartment was rented to a friend of one of the current tenants before the renovation began.
