A Touch of Glamour

Improving the aesthetics, work space, flow and storage areas while creating a flexible social hub for the family was achieved with a gorgeous new design

Located in the Beach, this Victorian Toronto home necessitated a transitional interior design style in order to incorporate the contemporary look that the homeowner wanted for renovating the kitchen.

The new design is simply brilliant and has completely transformed the old, dated kitchen. Increased counter space, cabinet storage and upgraded kitchen components makes meal preparation much more enjoyable. The granite bar doubles as a pleasant spot for small meals, doing homework or if need be, extra prep space. A flat screen on the wall adds another layer of functionality (and fun) to the kitchen. The charming light fixture exemplifies the theme of the renovation: casually glamorous, of timeless materials and colour palette.

The beautiful space is also much more than a functional one; it is the heart of the home, a central hub where the family can relax and socialize, as much as they use the room for cooking and eating small meals. The revamp has a timeless, classic aesthetic that will be stunning for many years to come.

DETAILS

  • The open, bright and casually glam kitchen is brought together with luxe details like the Antique Brown granite countertop with 1-1/2” flat polished edge profile, the Contessor Commercial style faucet and handy Saniwa lotion dispenser.

  • Miralis Cabinetry with wide-rail shaker doors with Antique White lacquer finish and wood dovetail drawers.

  • Spacious, multiple gas elements are ready to prepare a feast and the Bertazzoni 36” Chimney Style hood is ready to handle the steam. Note the equally stylish and handy KWC Pot Filler above.

  • The Walker Zanger Moss Green glass backsplash tiles add flare and a pop of colour in the classical neutral palette.

  • The Bertazzoni 36” Gas Range is a top of the tool for the serious home chef.

  • Miele coffee system

  • Hailo folding integrated step stool

  • Kindred Designer Collection skirted farmhouse sink

What Can an LCD Television Do For Me?

Jul 16, 2008 by BiglarKinyan Design Partnership Inc.

As much as we try to deny it, a big part of modern life is the television and our interactions that surround it. When it’s time to restyle your home, you may want to make room for a big screen TV, but your layout may not allow it. Large televisions often have bulky profiles, but Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) televisions solve that problem.
