About this Project
This North Vancouver condo down by the Quay was in dire need of a renovation when our client decided to make it her forever home.
Prior to the renovation the kitchen was both dated and dark. A bulkhead over the peninsula housed upper cabinets below, which blocked the beautiful view and sunlight. Naturally, this was the first thing to go!
Cabinets were added behind the peninsula where the client opted for storage rather than overhang seating. Sliding door hardware made them non-intrusive to the dining table and easily accessible. The addition of a tall/deep pantry on the fridge wall was the perfect addition to frame the landing space that is equipped with LED lighting, drawers below and a deep upper above – a storage dream!
It was important that the kitchen renovation complemented the existing materials in this open concept space.
We wanted to keep things light and inviting which we achieved by pairing painted cabinets in “Cotton White” with Caesarstone’s “Calacatta Nuvo” on the countertops and backsplash, which add warmth with its subtle marble pattern. The woodgrain element is made of Maple in a Natural Finish to compliment the floors and the existing living room millwork.
Integrated appliances aided in creating an illusion of a larger space in this compact room and were paired with matt black hardware for a modern look. One of our favourite sinks, the “Precis Cascade” by Blanco, was the perfect choice providing contrast and durability.
The bathrooms were also upgraded during this renovation with similar materials seen in the kitchen to bring balance and continuity to this home.
