Our designer, Kimberly Schellenberg, had the opportunity to work with custom home builder Onyx Custom Homes to design a kitchen and dining area in this complete home renovation. The family’s main renovation goals included creating a feeling of brightness, making space for their children to spend time comfortably, introducing an open concept flow to the dining room and maximizing storage.
Kim was able to bring the family’s preference modern style with traditional touches to life by focusing on key design elements: a simple cabinet door style in white, paneled appliances and mixed hardware finishes including a chrome faucet and brushed bronze handles.
The show-stopping element in this transitional kitchen renovation is the paneled custom wood hood fan, which is typically a feature in traditional kitchens, but the simple detailing allows it to blend perfectly with the modern aesthetic. Kim was able to incorporate intelligent organization options by placing the microwave in the butler’s pantry, installing waste disposal bins directly beside the sink and having tray dividers in the top section of the pantry.
This family loves to entertain and spend time together. To make this space family-friendly, Kim designed a large island with comfortable seating for their young children along with drawers that allow for easy access to snacks. When it comes to entertaining guests, it was important to have the kitchen area transition into the dining area with ease. The integrated bar fridge allows guests to conveniently access drinks without needing to enter the kitchen.
Kim was able to extend these style and convenience elements to other areas of the home including a stunning powder room vanity, an ensuite bathroom and the main bath with lots of drawers and organization inserts to keep things tidy.
