Queenswood - Kitchen Reno Wins Silver Care Award

By removing the wall diving the kitchen and dining room we were able to create a open concept with lots of light. The kitchen cabinets were painted Benjamin Moore Cloud White which was carried onto the ceiling and trim throughout the house. The island was stained a deep espresso. The counter-tops were done in a quartz sand/tan tone mirroring the tone of the floor tile. Built in shelves were added in the dining Room to create a drybar. The fabric barrel shades add texture and elegance. Built in seating was also added in the breakfast nook which also doubles as extra storage.

Living Room (Before and After)

The dated living room was transformed from a dingy dated space to an inviting space for entertaining. The existing fireplace was removed and a new contemporary unit was relocated on the adjacent wall. Millwork units were added on either side of the fireplace to further enhance the focal point while creating symmetry and balance. Integral lighting was added within each of the shelves to highlight artwork and accessories by creating pools of light
and warmth.
