House & Home Stylist Reiko Caron and Builder Dave Depencier talk kitchen designs in the final installment of the Home Kitchen Design series. They visit a 1400 sq. ft. two-bedroom open concept home in Dresden, Ontario, where they complete their step-by-step process to building a new kitchen.
When you design a new kitchen or renovate an existing one, the best part about the project is putting in the final touches! This project was a new build, so our team started with choosing the layout; and went with an L-shape layout with a free standing island.
They worked with Home Hardware Building Centre (http://bit.ly/2hWwHfb) to create the kitchen design and planned the cabinetry and appliances and where they made the most functional sense.
For lighting, they used all LEDs; including the pot lights (http://bit.ly/2jTywOD) which were spaced according to the kitchen layout. Pendant lighting (http://bit.ly/2iVtEbU) was installed over the island, and LED strip lighting (http://bit.ly/2hoNdaE) was used for under-cabinet lighting.
Then, the team went to Home Hardware to select the right Beauti-Tone paints (http://bit.ly/2hFWZ5V) for the job. They painted the walls with Beauti-Tone’s Worn Cedar (http://bit.ly/15sennp), which coordinates beautifully with the cabinets. On the island, they used Lucky Day Green (http://bit.ly/2fMiEXS), which was the perfect punch of colour and helped define the island as a piece of furniture.
The flooring is a rustic oak laminate (http://bit.ly/2hjWiys) that is very durable and 100% Canadian made and it actually looks like it’s real hardwood.
The cabinetry is from the Owner’s Choice line in the Lindsay Profile (http://bit.ly/2jQHlbE) which gives the kitchen nice, clean, simple lines.
The team chose closed cabinetry (http://bit.ly/2jQzmvd) as this case this kitchen is open to the dining room and the living room, so they wanted to keep clutter at bay.
They added a coffee station that will make entertaining guests easier; and a pullout microwave that lives behind closed doors. In order to do this, a licensed electrician was able to install specialized wiring so when the doors close, the power turns off.
The island was a joint collaboration. It’s a very simple project taking four upper cabinets and mounting them together and then getting legs on the sides. It gives it a total different look than the average island that you see all the time.
The countertop is white Wilsonart Haida quartz Q4008, which gives the kitchen a bright marble look.
The backsplash is a Masia white subway tile (http://bit.ly/2hhGEaJ). The irregular tiles gives an old world hand pressed look; with the wavy texture reflecting the light beautifully.
These GE stainless steel appliances (http://bit.ly/2gSt1zb) complete the kitchen. They add modern sophistication and energy efficiency.
The apron front sink (http://bit.ly/2hublcn) is stainless steel and has bottom grids. It’s a focal point of the room and the goose-neck faucet (http://bit.ly/2hCkdN4) looks great and is very functional.
Initially, the kitchen’s blueprints had the sink in the island, but the team decided to put it along the wall and add a window. Now, it’s a beautiful spot to grow some herbs and get all of this natural light.
No matter how much space you have, there are always ways to create openness and maximize functionality. The team maximized every inch of the cabinets to give the new homeowner smart storage by adding different levels of pullout shelving in the island. Under the coffee station, the drawers have a top level pullout for extra coffee pods or storing your lids. Under the sink, they made space for the garbage, recycling, and cleaners. These shelves can hold up to 100 pounds, so they are durable and can easily store a number of kitchen utensils.
Thanks for helping me sort through some receipts! I think next time I’ll use scissors.. Who agrees? Also, if this seems too fast paced for you, let me know and I’ll make a slower one next time!
