Spaces by Jacflash Spruces Up An Outdated Kitchen and Dining Room!

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.

Spaces By Jacflash transforms Youtube star Ask Kimberly, Kimberly Moffit's living and dining room into a traditional yet chic space for her and her family

Spaces By Jacflash transformed Youtube star Ask Kimberly, Kimberly Moffit's living and dining room into a traditional yet chic space for her and her family.

Prior to Kimberly's Spaces by Jacflash's makeover, she had her old condo furniture throughout the room. This Matching, beige leather set which had no real theme, added no warmth and did not quite fit the space. 

We then chose a traditional, bright and glamorous style. We did this by bringing in different metallics to add glamour as well as add different textures with  throw pillows.

We also added brass console tables on either side of the fireplace.

We swapped out her old leather sofa with a lavish, velvet, cream, tufted sofa.

And layered two rugs to add more depth and warmth to the space.

Instead of a coffee table, we opted for a large ottoman that opens for storage.

And took a basic storage unit and jazzed it up with brass, bone handles for her daughter's toy storage.

In the dining room, we used her table and chair set and tied in the acrylic from the tray on the ottoman with the acrylic legs on the dining room bench.

We finally swapped out the rustic chandelier for the brass sputnik pendant to add charm into the space.

We had so much fun working on this project with Kimberly and her family, look out for our youtube video on the entire process in the next couple of days!

Retro Meets Modern Apartment Kitchen

Spaces by Jacflash gave a major makeover to a small kitchen that was stuck in the 90s, with maple cabinets, laminate counters, and a dusty rose ceramic tile backsplash. We transformed it into an open, airy space with a 'modern-meets-retro' vibe to connect with the concept of the previously done living room. This warm white colour pallet, consisting of bright white cabinets, a bone refrigerator and creamy backsplash gives a very clean, fresh look. By adding chrome details it adds a touch of sparkle to enhance a sense of femininity.

The retro off white Caloric fridge was our jumping off point. Its tall but slim frame gave us the option of adding more storage in between the oven. Taking away the upper hanging cabinets above the sink made the entire room open concept, and reducing the bar-top to a level island gave so much more space for entertaining. Adding a microwave above the oven with a built in hood also gave us much more counter space, which was one of our client's main requests.

Using quartz is a great way to get a high end marble look, for a fraction of the price. Using quartz is also much more resistant material, and will not stain or chip as easily as a natural stone. These Ikea cabinets were a huge cost saver. The style we chose has a built in finger channel which reduced the need for hardware. Splurging on items like the fridge, counter and lighting, make this kitchen look more extravagant without the price tag of a custom kitchen. The light was a modern take on a retro inspired Sputnik light, that also fit perfectly in this galley style layout. It has a dramatic presence from both the entrance and dining room. The chrome finish ties in with the new sink faucet, and handles on the fridge. 

 

Continuing the concept of eclectic style was a challenge in such a small space, but keeping the main pieces white and bright allowed us to get playful with accessories like the sage green clock, the linen towels, small rag rug, and wooden cutting boards. Luckily our client already had a beautiful wooden table, so we paired it with some Mid-Century inspired dining chairs in a salt and pepper fabric and chrome legs to in the dining room and kitchen.
