A Kitchen: From Dated to Ahhhhhh

I have been working with a client on their kitchen renovation and I am pleased to say it is now complete!

Previously, the kitchen had an awkward layout with sizable counter returns making it difficult for two people to cook together. It also had some lovely wallpaper that had to go. Here’s a peek of what we started with:

We opened the space up to create two long counter runs and stretched the cabinetry from end to end of the kitchen. This created tons of storage and eliminated awkward corner cupboards. At one end of the kitchen will be a small desk space. The other end will be a small sitting space but could also be turned into a breakfast area in the future.

As with anything the devil is in the details. My client has an impeccable sense of style and knows what she likes. I loved it!

The cabinet profile, the cabinet hardware, sink and backsplash all had very clean lines. This was contrasted by the waterfall-like movement of the glass in the cabinet doors, the curve of the faucet and the pattern in the wallpaper.

We went with a 4×12 white backsplash, stacked the tile and used a darker grout. Classic with a twist.

The wallpaper turned out beautifully (it had just been hung when I took this picture so is still a bit wet).

Delta Faucets very kindly provided the faucet for this project. It’s the Delta Pilar in arctic stainless finish. The curve of the faucet contrasts the more linear elements in the kitchen. It had the Touch 2.0 technology which takes some getting used to if you haven’t had it before but is a handy feature.

We replaced the old ceiling fan with a contemporary, quieter and more powerful fan.

The kitchen floor had new hardwood installed and stained on site to match the existing floor in the living and dining room areas. The front hall tile was also replaced with a hexagon shaped tile – simple yet elegant.

The TV was mounted on the wall and can be viewed from either the kitchen or the sitting area – planning ahead on where your cabling will run and how your components are housed is a must.

My clients are very pleased with the result – as am I! Here is another shot for your viewing pleasure …

If you would like help creating the kitchen of your dreams give me a call!
