Good bones, kitchen renovation in need of modernization
Structurally, the kitchen’s layout made a lot of sense. They had a well-placed central island and the sink overlooked a fabulous view of the backyard that includes a river view. However, as we discussed the need for their kitchen renovation, there was room for improvement. Therefore, we worked tirelessly with their requirements and using 3D models, we showed them options to alleviate the concerns and shortcomings with their existing kitchen. Once we had a winning layout, we went to work!
Deconstruction plays a part in the demolition
As mentioned, and as you’ll see in the before photo, the old cabinets were still in decent shape. We’re firm believers in going green wherever we can, and our clients felt the same. So, instead of just ripping the cabinets off the wall and deposing of them at the landfill, we made the conscious decision to deconstruct. Deconstruction takes more time, as the materials and fixtures are removed gently so they can be used again – not destroyed. However, the good far outweighs the extra time investment needed. We worked with our client to find a suitable organization to have the cabinets donated – and one day again, they’ll see new life.
New beam and electrical moved
After the cabinets were cleared out and we completed the rest of the demolition. We moved right along to installing the new beam. As well, our design-build process found the layout is improved by moving the stove and oven to the same side as the sink. Also, it would allow us to vent the exhaust hood to the exterior of the home and reduce the congestion in the layout. Finally, the electrical needed was moved to facilitate the appliances moving.
Kitchen renovation receives a modern interpretation
An enormous focus of the project was to bring some modern amenities into the newly designed kitchen space. As part of our kitchen renovation consultation process, we guided our client to some key decisions – pushing the look of the kitchen to new heights.
Exhaust hood for stove/oven
A statement piece in design, the new exhaust hood is a fantastic visual while also being entirely practical. Therefore, moving the appliance location to an exterior wall allowed us to vent the exhaust to the outside of the home.
Statement subway tile
Our tile selection is on-trend with fancy European kitchens and looks like something directly out of a magazine. So, our choice was to pop the tile with dark grout. Finally, we meticulously created a faux-stone grey wall that turned out amazing.
Islands are better with a waterfall
All the rage right now, the island with a continuous waterfall edge was incorporated into this kitchen design. Also, made entirely of durable quartz, the entire island becomes a showpiece for this already stunning kitchen renovation.
