Spaces by Jacflash transformed this once run-down, dated kitchen and dining room into a modern and luxurious space, while making sure to uphold our client’s vision and appreciation for traditionalism.
We wanted to make this once-cluttered kitchen with a poor use of space more functional, while maximizing every corner of the room to create the illusion of a larger area. Our client wanted a clean, conventional and striking aesthetic. We chose a custom shaker-style millwork and created a built-in wall unit for additional storage in the dining area. We painted the walls Benjamin Moore's 'Simply White' to complement the cabinetry, countertop and backsplash. This served a dual purpose of highlighting key pieces in the space while created an open, airy feel as well.
To add additional flare to the space, we combined modern, clean pulls on the cupboards with more traditional cup handles for the drawers, all in brushed nickel. Updating all of the fixtures and appliances in the space contributed to the overall rejuvenation we were hoping to achieve for our client!
We swapped out all of the existing lighting and replaced it with new, flush pot lights and linear LED under-cabinet lighting to highlight the cabinetry finishes, the herringbone backsplash and the striking veining in the countertops.
A small but impactful design decision was to remove the existing wall between the kitchen and dining area. This created functionality and seamless flow between rooms for our client, in addition to a visually larger, more open space.
The dining table we chose was a classic round tulip table. We surrounded this with four San Francisco dining chairs from Kare Toronto. These pieces fit in the space perfectly, with the soft velvet material and colour of the chairs bringing a necessary warmth to the space. Finally, we lit the dining area with a modern take on a classic fixture, to make the space more intimate and unite the traditional and modern pieces throughout.
