Lighthouse Point Kitchen Renovation
Something new, old, borrowed… our renovation is just missing something blue!
Almost everything is new
Our story about the kitchen renovation on Lighthouse Point in Winnipeg, starts with full demolition of the previous kitchen space. Many parts of this kitchen feature “something new”. In fact, nearly everything you see is new. New lines and edges around windows, new tile, new cabinetry, new sink and faucet, new lighting, and new countertops. All of the new was focused around making the kitchen design as clean and bright as possible – which was a huge contrast from their previous stained wood cabinet kitchen.
Reusing the old flooring
However, different than many of the projects we work on – we reused the client’s flooring which is “something old”. The original hardwood found throughout this home was too beautiful to cover or remove. The flooring was in fantastic shape – well cared for throughout the years! It really gives the home character and the client loves it for that reason.
Other parts of the home borrow colour palette
As we worked through the kitchen space, our interior designer selected contemporary cool tones that fit the space perfectly. But due to the home’s configuration, the adjoining space which featured a brick fireplace and outdated colour palette, brought down the “wow” factor of our work. However, after consulting with our client, they agreed to have us paint some of the adjoining room interior walls and the fireplace. The living space adjoining the kitchen renovation borrowed the colours – which is our “something borrowed”.
As the old English rhyme goes – something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue… we missed the blue! But the renovation outcome is still so good, you might want to get married in this kitchen anyways!
Here’s the details of the renovation work and materials featured
- As stated earlier our demolition included a complete gutting of the kitchen, removing the dated stained wood cabinets and stripping the space down to the studs
- However, the original hardwood flooring, which flows throughout the main floor was left for its character and the fact it was in good shape
- The tiled backsplash material is from Ames Tile and Stone
- Part of the clean look plays into the details – we used a Schluter Jolly Strip instead of trim around the window for a clean edge
- Cabinetry is from the team at Springfield Woodworking, which are maple painted cabinets
- Enclosing the top edge where the cabinets met the ceiling with crown moulding gives the home instant vintage appeal and ties into the character wood flooring
- In-laid sink and faucet supplied by Dynasty Bathrooms
- The lighting which brightens the space even on those cloudy days is from Robinson Lighting
As with any renovation, we had parameters to be held within. The client came to us wanting a bright and clean space but needed things like the flooring to remain intact. Even with parameters, our craftsmanship and attention to detail shines bright, just like this finished renovation.
