The Modern Country Kitchen in Ottawa
There was nothing wrong with the 80’s. Big hair and bright colours made for a good time, after all. It was also easier to see people at night when you were on your way to the next party. Once you got home, tired from partying and maybe wiping running mascara from your face, the California style ceiling and the pink peninsula were probably very welcomed.
These things aren’t such a welcomed sight in 2015. We’ve moved on to a much more subtle, but still quite effective style. A closed in, cramped kitchen was a terrible reflection on the bright and broad personalities of our clients. They had spent years thumbing through design books, home magazines, and decor-themed websites (like Houzz). They needed someone to listen, understand, and make their dreams real - and within budget. They chose LindenCraft to update their kitchen, dining room and bathroom to fit their tastes, style, and vibrant personalities.
And so we set out to make the Modern Country kitchen come alive! With three kids, ample storage is always a must, so we made sure there was room for all manner of tastes and favorites. To deal with the outdated cabinetry, we installed semi-custom IKEA Lindingo for the main view and Ramsjo Black Brown kitchen cabinetry for the island with oodles of storage. For both the kitchen and the dining room, we used Oak Hardwood in a toffee stain to punctuate the design. LindenCraft Lighting pendant lights created a magical atmosphere to brighten moods and conversations, and a Blanco Diva restaurant style faucet added a sleek look to the combination.
We could see and feel the transformation as the kitchen and dining opened up to show limitless design and potent dreams realized. The result was a kitchen that pulled together two styles, amplified the ambience of the rooms, and got across exactly what our clients had always imagined.
