Nova Vista


Faced with a dated kitchen in an inefficient layout, the client was looking for a contemporary style that would make the most of the limited square footage. After removing the old kitchen and upgrading plumbing and electrical, we were able to implement a far better kitchen design, that much better utilized the available space.

The U-shape kitchen design was completely scrapped, and instead we extended the main bank of cabinets all the way across the entire back wall. The lower cabinets feature draws and specialized pull outs to make them much more efficient for storage. The extension doubled the available counter space, and allowed for a new integrated bench seat with storage next to the back patio door.

A large island with centred sink was installed with an extension for bar seating. The dark cabinets, a grey brown finish on maple, are balanced out by a bright white quartz countertop. As well, the glass backsplash in a contemporary tile pattern added a high end finish.

We were pleased with the outcomes and most importantly, the client was ecstatic with the completed project.

The functional layout (was my favourite part of the overall renovation)

I cannot say enough about the process from start to finish AND the finish product with this company. So many people roll their eyes when you ask them about a renovation. We actually had fun doing a major layout change and kitchen renovation! The staff are efficient, pleasant, tidy, respectful. Workmanship and attention to detail are top notch. Nothing but raves from all that have seen it. Doesn’t even feel like my house!! Thanks to Tyson and his team!!!

We knew that we had to renovate our 40+ year old kitchen, but the thought was daunting… hiring a contractor, dealing with permits, plumbing, electrical… not to mention the cost. Thankfully we found Hammerdown, and Tyson handled all these details for us! We really appreciated the benefit of their interior design expertise. And the crew was great – all were respectful of our home and worked hard to transform our kitchen. Tyson built a great working relationship with us, and he devoted the necessary time and attention to ensure that our project was worry-free, done on time, and that we got great value for our money. Thanks to Tyson and the Hammerdown crew, our new kitchen is amazing! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hammerdown to anyone who’s looking to renovate.
