Paul’s Favourite Kitchen Renovations – 2023 edition

Windsor Park Kitchen

This month I’m thrilled to share with you my five favourite kitchen transformations. With nearly 30 kitchens under our belt it was hard to choose just 5! These remarkable kitchens are not just about style; they embody the spirit of our work and our clients’ dreams.

Each kitchen has its own unique story, reflecting the personalities and lifestyles of the homeowners. From cozy, rustic designs that evoke warmth and family gatherings, to sleek, modern spaces that speak to efficiency and elegance, these kitchens demonstrate the power of personalized design. 

Click on the images and they’ll take you a page with a full description of the project with before and after photos plus video reveals so you can see all the remarkable details in these spaces.

As you explore these transformations, I hope they spark your imagination and inspire ideas for your own home. These kitchens have inspired us immensely, and we believe they’ll do the same for you.

I love the mid-century modern vibe in this project’s kitchen, enhanced with modern elements for boosted performance. This space combines style and functionality, featuring a stunning 10’ folding window system that beautifully lights up the area. The kitchen’s design is elevated with two-tone cabinets in white and rift oak, complemented by light quartz countertops and a geometric backsplash, creating a harmonious blend of classic and contemporary aesthetics.

This kitchen renovation holds a special place for me, blending elegant finishing with a minimalist and space-efficient design. The standout feature is the uniquely-shaped island, ingeniously transforming a once narrow area into a spacious, functional workspace. It greatly enhances movement and cooking efficiency. The space is further complemented by floating shelves and full-height cabinetry, which not only provide ample storage but also contribute to the kitchen’s sleek, modern aesthetic.

Strathearn Park Kitchen

This kitchen is a true testament to bold design and innovative storage solutions. I love how the bold, vibrant colour palette and unique features come together to create an unforgettable look. The custom-built shelving and bench unit in the living area, along with custom cabinets and a geometric ceramic backsplash in the kitchen, exemplify smart design.

Cloverdale Kitchen

 I love this kitchen for its sleek, two-tone design and incredible storage capacity. The custom kitchen, with its built-in pantry and island, strikes the perfect balance between style and practicality. This project perfectly demonstrates how sophisticated design can cater to everyday practical needs.

Windsor Park Kitchen

This kitchen is a personal favourite because of its classic beauty and the meticulous attention to custom details. This luxury renovation stands out for its premium cabinetry and millwork, and designer countertops. The custom-made backsplash tile and cabinet glass details truly exemplify the project’s elegant and detailed craftsmanship. This project is a beautiful showcase of how classic style can be harmoniously blended with custom, detailed work.
