We’re all a buzz with anticipation at RTR Media, where Income Property is brought to life. The new season is, honestly the best yet. Incredible renovations, amazing home owners and of course enviable designs. We hope you all enjoy it as much as we do!
Season 8 of Income Property premieres Thursday, September 19th on HGTV Canada! For those of you watching HGTV in the U.S., the Income Property air date is Tuesday, September 24th at 9pm.
Melissa sat down with Extraordinary Women TV’s host Shannon Skinner to share a behind the scenes look at HCMD Design and her work on HGTV’s Income Property.
Income Property typically has us creating 2 units in a previously single family home. We add an income suite, as the name suggests! This episode was exciting from a design perspective, because it was an investment property and kept as a single family home. What that meant was all above-grade, and more elevated finishes to attract a high-end renter. Room to stretch our designer legs!
The kitchen is the show-stopper, here. Melissa worked with IKEA Abstrakt white cabinets, to create a custom kitchen on a budget. The counters are a really beautiful crushed glass composite that’s extremely durable and has tonnes of visual depth. By using an inexpensive 2×8 white tile, in a random pattern below the wood shelf and vertical straight pattern above, it added a great contemporary look, with a bit of texture and interest. The floating shelves are standard IKEA oak butcher block counters, cut to size and mounted on hidden, Lee Valley brackets.
