Although the strata limitations of this renovation was restricted, this baker’s kitchen was a stunning transformation! Replacing the dated lighting, moving the range over a meter, and swapping the dishwasher location to the other side of the sink provided for a large baking area that was completely functional. The contemporary dark cabinetry paired with the hand-pressed (original) tile and white Cambria Quartz countertops provides a unique rustic-chic twist. The new, larger, duel-fuel range is balanced by the refrigerator and the tall storage on each side, and illuminated with additional task lighting.
The client has a very small kitchen with an unused patio door and no workspace for any of the cooking and baking activities desired. Removing the bulk-heads, full-height wall cabinets, and replacing the patio door with a window allowed for a complete re-organization of the floor plan. The sink was relocated beneath the window to feature the pleasing view of the mountains to the north. A fully tiled back-splash tied in with brickwork in the fireplace of the adjoining living room. The kitchen now opens onto the dining and living rooms with a full preparation centre and baking centre including wine storage, a double-drawer dishwasher, and pull-out magic corner accessories.
The young multi-generational family was completely overwhelmed in the small and separated builder kitchen of this modern town home. Removing bulk-heads, a partition wall, and new finishes throughout the main floor provided a complete transformation for growing needs. Swapping the range and the refrigerator to opposite walls allowed for an eating bar facing the dining room. A new eat-in kitchen with Cambria Quartz counter-tops provided additional breakfast space, storage, and maintained the view of the mountains to the north. Peninsula wall cabinets with frosted glass and under-cabinet lighting separated the spaces but provided an open plan kitchen for all activities requested.
The entire design of this kitchen was focused on the view of the river from the banquette and keeping the existing hardwood flooring. Without relocating any gas or plumbing lines, a change to the refrigerator location provided for a complete farm-to-table preparation cycle. Completing the look with a nautical fabric scheme
