We talked to Legacy designer Suzi Froese in Canmore to find out what makes her Transitional kitchen design the perfect fit for this mountain retreat.
What was your clients’ goal for the space?
They were striving for a cohesive design that combined two penthouse units seamlessly but without becoming repetitive.
How did you meet that goal?
We utilized the same door style throughout both units for continuity, but introduced a variety of cabinet wood species and stain options to give each space its own personality.
What style is this design?
This is a Transitional design that mixes Traditional elements like the range hood and appliance garage with the Contemporary feel of the waterfall island countertop and modern stain colours.
What lifestyle factors influenced the design?
My clients entertain friends and family throughout the year so they wanted great flow and storage in the kitchen area, and an inviting, casual entertainment area in the family room.
What functional details would you like to highlight?
The waterfall island in the kitchen offers great a workspace with functional storage below. I also included a tall pantry wall, desk area and drop zone next to the main entry of the home.
What is your favourite aspect of the new kitchen?
I love all of the functional storage options hidden behind the beautiful cabinets – drawers, pullouts, magic corners, spice racks and trash/recycle bins.
