    Waddell Kitchen Renovation

    Solid-back suspended upper cabinets and a lack of storage space made this kitchen feel boxed-in and confining.

    Although we didn’t change the layout (the flooring was in good shape, and ran throughout the adjoining rooms), by removing the suspended cabinets, and using innovative interior cabinet hardware, we were able to both open up the space and increase storage capacity. Medium stained European Beech cabinets, a classic subway tile backsplash, and a beautiful dark quartz countertop, all combined to make a kitchen that was more than a slight change from the original. Proof that you don’t have to go through a massive kitchen renovation in order to have a massive transformation!

    Langstaff Kitchen

    This kitchen design suffered from a poor layout, featuring two islands; one of which always seemed to be in the way (it was, after all, located smack dab in the middle of the kitchen triangle).

    We took out the two islands (replacing them with one large, far more functional island), removed the soffits (which allowed us to take the new cabinets all the way up to the ceiling), added a rotating pantry, double wall ovens, a professional range, wine fridge, built-in coffee machine, and a rotating pantry (and a partridge, in a pear tree).

    For the cabinet finish....we went dark and dramatic! The large amount of natural light, skylights, under-cabinet lights and pendants make the quartz countertop sparkle (it also helps that it’s made with small pieces of recycled mirror and glass). The result? A kitchen that feels both very open and warm, yet sophisticated and contemporary. Sometimes, going to the dark side is a good idea!

    Hirschberg Kitchen

    The client had a dated kitchen (not to mention a little bit of flood damage). A major renovation was in order.

    Our goal was to embrace some of the existing, distinctive features of this kitchen (including a stained glass window, white quartz fireplace wall, and a clear cedar tongue and groove ceiling), while giving it a more modern, updated design.

    Using high pressure laminate cabinetry, stainless steel countertops, and a natural slate tile floor, we managed to provide a sleek backdrop where all the diverse elements of the space really shine. We even added a raised “L” shaped breakfast bar off the island that allows the kitchen to accommodate family, friends, and other assorted spectators of kitchen wizardry.
