Traditionally Elegant Kitchen Makeover

The goal for this lake-front home was to design a kitchen that would enhance the experience of preparing meals and entertaining.

The existing kitchen lacked style and was in need of new, quality materials that would stand up to the family’s needs as this serves as a long-term home. The space was also in need of functionality enhancements. We relocated the cooktop, wall oven and refrigerator to improve the flow of meal preparation. Two islands were included to maximize storage and countertop space. A custom matching kitchen table was designed and built to tie in to the new, traditionally elegant style.

How We Transformed This Kitchen

Soft off-white and natural walnut wood custom cabinetry create a timeless, sophisticated look.

The large island houses the main enamelled cast iron kitchen sink. A raised bar top allows guests to stand and mingle while the chef prepares gourmet meals. The back of the island provides full access storage.

Solid walnut dovetail drawers house pots and pans below the cooking surface. The maintenance free quartz countertop completes the look with it’s gorgeous natural coastal pattern.

A 36” induction cooktop with five burners helps to create meals within minutes. The glass surface and angled stainless edging makes cleaning a breeze.

Two-tone glass hexagon backsplash tiles tie into the soft off-white cabinetry.

A second prep sink and cold water faucet was designed into the space to act as a secondary area to prepare a drink or snack. The sink, made from flawless coloured enamelled cast iron blends perfectly with the stunning quartz countertop.

Deep drawers below the sink are custom made to fit around the plumbing from the sink, adding additional functional storage.

The oversized, curved walnut range hood acts as a focal point within the kitchen. Brushed stainless steel strapping allow the hood to stand apart.

All walnut base cabinets set the stage for the timeless, sophisticated style. Ample countertop space on each side of the induction cooktop allow the chef to effortlessly prepare meals.

We designed a custom kitchen-height table into the space, with a view overlooking Lake Huron. The table top, made from maintenance free quartz paired with a custom walnut table base and legs work seamlessly with the rest of the kitchen.

The Canadian-made custom dining chairs feature a soft cream and sage-coloured patterned fabric to provide texture and comfort.

To the right of the table, wall to wall storage provides a place for extra everyday items. A secondary custom shaped island was incorporated into the centre of the kitchen. Made from walnut wood, with an all wood cabinet box and interior, this island provides added storage and countertop space for placing hot items from the oven, or for buffet style family meals.

Behind the island, a custom coffee station complete with a pull out shelf, professional style refrigerator, wall oven and microwave drawer optimize the work flow within the space.
