Kitchen renovation ~ bungalow
~ Warm grey cabinetry. Marble-like quartz countertops are continued up the backsplash, creating a clean, continuous look.
~ The island, one of the biggest priorities, houses a large farmhouse sink, dishwasher, garbage/recycling cabinet, and beverage fridge. The lowered, natural wood breakfast bar adds warmth to the kitchen, and compliments the gold accents.
~ By installing a banquette, the table was able to move closer to the wall, which allowed for better traffic flow to the patio doors.
Kitchen renovation ~ 1993 2-storey
~ Grey cabinets offered a perfect balance with the existing hardwood flooring. The white herringbone backsplash (to the ceiling) adds texture and visual interest behind the floating shelves and range hood.
~ To create better traffic flow and a more functional working kitchen, the peninsula was replaced with an island. Also, by adding a window bench (with storage) allowed for their existing table to be moved out of the way of the dining room doors.
~ The original built-in cherry cabinet was re-worked to house the clients' television. A distressed black finish was applied in order to see the warmth of the wood and still co-ordinate with the flooring.
Kitchen renovation ~ 1990's 2-storey
~ The previous kitchen & dining area were flipped to create a more efficient working kitchen. This allowed for a large opening to the family room where large custom sliding doors were installed.
~ A corner pantry was constructed to achieve more storage!
~ Pet experts say that pets need a space of their own, so we designed a built-in bed for their dog and cat to snuggle up and sleep in! Metal screen doors look stylish and are practical for ventilation.
Built-ins ~ 2006 Bungalow
~ This beautiful Great Room has 3 focal points; a large television, gas fireplace and large window with a gorgeous view.
~ The built-ins that flank the existing fireplace were designed to house the 55" TV, offer a place to showcase accessories and add extra storage.

Main Floor renovation ~ 1986 2 storey
~ This main floor was redesigned in order to create one large kitchen and family area, a formal dining room, and add a much needed powder room

~ The existing oak fireplace mantel was balanced with the custom oak range hood
Kitchen & Dining renovation ~ 1986 Raised Bungalow

~ A hint of modern farmhouse style was established with an apron front sink, a custom distressed table made from hemlock barn beams, and a rustic chandelier....not to mention the cow print!
~ The built-in banquette, flanked by hutch units, adds a nice focal point to the kitchen. It is also a perfect solution for a large table in a smaller space.
Kitchen & Dining area renovation ~ 1970's Bungalow
~ This spacious transitional kitchen mixes traditional 'Cloud White' cabinetry with detailed mouldings, and classic granite countertops with modern stainless steel appliances, and glass backsplash tile. The result is a fresh and refined kitchen!

~ The island houses stacked refrigerator drawers, recycling bins, and seating for 2-3 people
Renovated Kitchen & Dining area ~ Early '70's 2-Storey Home
~ Opening up the wall between the kitchen and dining room created an open space and better connection with the adjoining family room.
~ By switching the kitchen and dining areas, and equalizing the step down into the family room, a more efficient kitchen and better traffic flow was achieved.
~ The white Shaker style cabinets were embellished with crown moulding and furniture-style toekicks and contrasted nicely with the dark hardwood flooring. The dark grey painted island anchors the space. The light grey quartz countertops and the marble backsplash complete the classic look.
Renovated Kitchen & Dining area ~ 1960's Bungalow
~ Removing a wall between the family room and kitchen created an open concept living space.
~ Installing a large island not only created a visual separation between the kitchen and family area, but also offered a great surface for family dining and entertainment.

~ In order to create the Craftsman/Cottage look, white shaker cabinets were enhanced with a painted tongue & groove ceiling, barn board accent at the desk, stone veneer backsplash and period lighting fixtures.
Kitchen Renovation ~ 1974 Bungalow
~ Grey cabinetry, dark grey quartz countertops, crisp white backsplash tiles and stainless steel appliances created a sleek, contemporary kitchen.

~ Plenty of storage was created at the desk area and in the mudroom.
Updated Kitchen ~ 1968 Home
~ The new home owners wanted to update the look of their kitchen, without renovating the entire space.
~ We kept the ceramic tile flooring and the perimeter kitchen cabinets and added more cabinets to form a large peninsula.
~ We created a bulkhead, added furniture-base toekicks and changed all the doors to a shaker style, all painted in a soft white. We installed quartz countertops on the peninsula and Kashmir White granite countertops for the rest of the kitchen.
~ The kitchen transformation was completed by adding more pot lights, replacing the appliances, changing the hardware and painting the entire area in a warm neutral tone.
