The heart and soul of a home deserves the look and intuitive functionality of custom kitchen cabinetry, islands, pantries and specialized millwork that will make life comfortable, organized and ultimately more enjoyable!
Casual, yet modern farmhouse kitchen
These empty nesters were looking to transform their kitchen from a family hub into an elegant and mature space for entertaining. The couple chose a trendy, fun colour palette of warm, white upper cabinets that balanced against lower cabinets and a giant island with beautiful grey and green undertones.
The large island helped accomplish this vision, extending the cohesive beauty of the cabinetry, adding storage space and seating, and creating a comfortable, ergonomic workspace for cooking and baking.
A casual, yet modern farmhouse vibe was created by incorporating warm barn wood, which was intentionally integrated throughout the kitchen – you'll notice it in the handcrafted barn door and window trim. The homeowner's son works in Northern Ontario and often brings home unique pieces of wood which we incorporated into the space to add sentimentality for the clients.
Open concept, loads of storage
These homeowners dreamt of an open-concept kitchen, which meant removing lots of small walls to open and enlarge the space. Doubling the storage space was important to the owners, and we accomplished this by thoughtfully designing cabinetry to maximize the footprint of the room.
The wood-tone island is a stark contrast with the white upper and lower cabinets, a design element that purposefully draws the eye in while enlarging the space. Different cabinet and drawer configurations throughout each area of the kitchen balance functionality with aesthetics.
Our quality workmanship is evident everywhere you look - from the dovetail drawers to the soft close cupboards (and drawers), to the ingenuity inherent in the easy-glide space savers. Here, everything has a place and the smallest details combine to make a big impression.
Innovative millwork with technology built-in
Symmetry and technology were the directional forces behind this project. The layout was designed with cohesiveness in mind. Larger features like the walk-in-pantry and panel-ready appliances achieved the vision with clean cabinets along one feature wall.
Finer details added to the symmetry including the oversized hood range and custom cutlery drawer inserts, which we incorporated to keep the drawers looking clean and organized.
Can you spot the hidden technology embedded throughout this kitchen? From motion light-activated garbage pull-outs to toe kick drawers that open with a soft touch of your foot (and are ideal for pet food bowls), we loved creating the innovative millwork that dots the landscape of this kitchen.
