Finch, Ontario • Full Gut Kitchen Remodel


About the Project

This home’s original kitchen was so outdated it really needed some attention in order to live up to today’s requirements. There was no ‘official’ place for a refrigerator, and especially not one of today’s proportions. The other appliances had lived up to their best-before date and the Formica countertops were cracked and chipping. Small windows were poorly located and did not take advantage of the beautiful view of the backyard and pond. While the original kitchen did have a table and chairs, the chairs always seemed to be in the way when cooking in this kitchen.

  • An island with a wine fridge
