A Bright New Kitchen for a Couple Use to Eastern Canadian Charm- Designer Shelly Patterson
This kitchen boast warmth and charm after the renovation. Don't be fooled, under the ample drawers and doors on soft close hinges lies a functional, well organized kitchen. Clients recent move to Abbotsford from the Maritimes brough new hopes of a West Coast lifestyle, jogging and marathon running throughout the year and cooking in a kitchen both clients could enjoy. Before photos show a unhappy space. While this condo is well lit and has elements such as beautiful hardwood floors in the entry, the kitchen lacked function, correct modern lighting and wood designs from the 1900. No respraying this kitchen would do...we do that, new counters and backsplash but this old kitchen had to go. Spices, large mixing bowls, numerous utensils were all planned for in the our two design- 2 hour meetings prior to start of demolition. One meeting on site after the contract was signed and one to confirm drawings and make changes where needed. Adding two Marathon Fastener Flymoons- see designer notes later on the page, meant no more corner units not accessible as clients age. Beautiful and Function- bright and durable. Clients chose a high definition laminate by Formica. Their concerns with solid surface was the cold and maintenance issues with true marble surfaces. We have used this high definition laminate before and know it quality to withstand staining and scratches is amazing. Together as a team, we designed, planned, built and installed all items shown.
