Traditional custom designed cabinets and high-end appliances balance functionality and style in this Kitchen in one of the most charming neighborhoods in Victoria BC. The sight-line through the kitchen from the entrance of this home gives visitors an immediate, and accurate, impression of the design choices.
On my first site visit it was clear that this outdated kitchen was in need of a complete overhaul as you can see in the pictures below:
The 4 1/4 inch wide walnut plank flooring runs throughout this section of the home and provides a visual connection between the entrance, the kitchen, the dining room and the living room. When my clients opted for wood cabinetry; we suggested cherry wood. It has a similar grain to walnut, and also picks up a red tone found in some of the planks. The woods created an analogous effect.
New windows and doors, specially designed focal points and high-end appliances make this new kitchen unrecognizable from the dated space we first confronted.
