This is the second post giving an inside look at this condo project. You can see an overview of the condo here. Today we’re focusing on the heart of the home – the kitchen! This kitchen has SO many incredible features! These homeowners gave some thoughtful consideration to their lifestyle, the frustrations they had in prior kitchens, and ideas they wanted to include in their dream kitchen. We pulled all of their insight together to create a functional and stunning kitchen.
The whole kitchen can be viewed here, but I’ll give you some of the highlights in this post.
First of all, the warm white cabinetry and textured subway tile backsplash create an elegant and timeless canvas. The addition of dark, iron hardware, glass inserts in some of upper cabinetry, rustic barn board shelves and and a white, cast iron farmhouse sink bring in the casual warmth that truly reflects the homeowners. I can’t say it enough – guys, you HAVE to create a space that reflects YOU – not some image in a glossy magazine. When you think about your lifestyle and bring that into your design, you end up with a space that feels like you… like HOME. And that’s the MOST important part of home design for me.
The homeowners love coffee and tea, so we utilized one part of the counter to create a coffee and tea bar. Everything they need for the perfect cappuccino is at their fingertips – including the their favourite mugs housed in the drawers below.
Opposite the coffee bar is the kitchen sink which has another of their favourite features – a carbonated water faucet. Yes, you read that correctly. This faucet delivers freshly carbonated water at the turn of a knob! Not only does this save them from hauling cases of their favourite cold beverage from the parking garage all the way up to their condo, the cost savings over time were well worth the initial investment.
This kitchen also offers a stunning, spacious gas range and separate double ovens, a small appliance cupboard – so you can leave your daily appliances plugged in and ready to use but out of eyesight, pull-out shelving in a section of cupboards to create a pantry space, spice storage in pull out drawers next to the range, a pot-filler and plenty of cupboard and drawer space.
