Total Reno | Main Floor • Light, Lovely & Family Friendly Before & After

During the initial design consultation, our client told her Legacy designer, Jennean, that she had three primary wishes for her Total Reno:

  1. Replace the outdated brown color everywhere.
  2. Have a bigger, more functional island.
  3. Find a natural space for her kids to work on the computer.

After – It was very important to the homeowner that we keep the computer accessible but not on the island. This built-in desk was the perfect solution.

Jennean was able to make the homeowner’s wishes a reality by:

  1. Implementing a grey and white colour scheme not only in the kitchen, but throughout the entire main floor. Our client also used Legacy’s recommended interior decorator to help with selecting new furniture, refinishing the hardwood floor and painting all bases and cases.
  2. Designing a bigger island with seating, storage and wine fridge.
  3. Creating a charming built-in computer desk away from the primary food prep area but still right in the kitchen.

After – We made the entire space feel light and open by mixing stainless steel appliances, hood fan and accessories with glass cabinetry and unique ¾” thick countertops.

Like all renovations, this project gave our team the opportunity to address challenges with creative solutions. One example of Jennean’s innovative thinking was her handling of a very large refrigerator. Jennean wanted to keep the new appliance from breaking the visual lines of the space, so she added custom paneling to blend it seamlessly with the cabinetry.

After – The homeowner was able to gain ample new storage space in the nook by replacing the table and adding wrap around bench seating over cabinets with pull out drawers.

We asked Jennean to point out her favorite design details, “The coffered ceiling is a fantastic design element. The ceilings weren’t very high but we were able to custom make 3 inch MDF strips that were painted and installed in a grid pattern and made a stunning design detail that the homeowners love. The homeowner absolutely loves the lightness and brightness of the whole space and the size of the new island.”
