New Hamilton homeowners find that they are able to get so much more house than they ever would in bigger cities like Toronto; that’s what brought these transplants to Ancaster. The clients found their perfect home, but had always dreamed of having a kitchen to match their needs and style. The biggest issue with the former kitchen was that it was much smaller and darker than the clients wanted for a contemporary look. Louise was brought in to bring a fresh light to the 90s-style kitchen.
Louise worked closely with the clients to ensure that their trendy tastes were coming through in her design. She was able bring in contractors to make structural changes to the home, including the removal of walls to make space for an island, and filling in a window to accommodate a decorative hood fan to go above the 36 inch range stove. An extra special touch in this dream kitchen was Louise’s coffee entertainment station design with decorative mullions and glass shelves on the surrounding walls.
Other drastic changes were the removal of a bulkhead to allow the cabinetry to go all the way to the ceiling with a rising crown to give the illusion of higher ceilings. The clients requested semi-solid maple miter doors for their cabinets, a panelled dishwasher and fridge, a garbage and recycling centre, and a custom state-of-the-art pull-out pantry.The clients were thrilled with the final result of their dream kitchen. “Louise really listened to what we wanted and helped us come up with the perfect design for us … The kitchen turned out better than we imagined!”
In this home Louise took on the design of the kitchen, along with all vanities, the laundry room and the family room built-in.
Louise loved working with these clients - they knew exactly what they wanted their house to feel like and what design elements they were looking for.
