With two active, young daughters and a passion for cooking, entertaining and hosting large family gatherings, their outdated kitchen needed a change. After considering various options: new cabinets with the same layout, renovating the home with an addition, or working with the existing structure and expanding the kitchen into the formal dining room by knocking down a dividing wall, the leracis opted for the latter option and so began the creation of their dream space.
Counter space was a must and the gallery layout, complete with island, provides more than sufficient workspace for multiple chefs. The kitchen was kept bright using the Bedford Vanilla cabinetry on the perimeter, with the contrasting Pacifica Cocoa Maple island added warmth to the space. An abundance of storage is incorporated throughout the space with three oversized pantries. To keep the space clear of clutter, tray dividers, a garbage and recycling center and a handy sink tilt out drawer were included. Neutral brick tile for the backsplash paired with the stainless steel appliances and decorative posts and mouldings throughout, complete the look of the transitional space, creating a beautiful kitchen with plenty of space for dinner parties – exactly what the leracis ordered!
