The Fresh Take Kitchen in Ottawa
There are times when the city is just too much. When the craving for suburban life hits, dragging you far from the noise and bustle of downtown life, the best place to turn is an old house. Our clients, a couple with a shared love for dogs, decided a nice 1950’s bungalow was perfect for them. Before moving in, they knew their kitchen was tired and needed immediate attention. Face with a kitchen that had very little counter space or even space to walk, the couple, and their dog decided it was time to take action sooner than later. Unfortunately, they’d been burned before by other renovators and were very careful who they worked with. After a friend eagerly recommended LindenCraft, they decided on us to provide them with thoughtful design paired with quality every step of the way.
In 2014, we were tasked with taking their old kitchen and turning it into a modern delight. The sturdy bungalow was built to last, but the mid 1980’s kitchen makeover wasn’t as fortunate. The kitchen had potential. While there was little usable space or counter space to utilize, we decided to use our design skills to modernize the space we had to work with instead of knocking down walls. In the end, we were able to create a captivating kitchen well within their planned renovation budget.
Using Waterford Quartz counters from Cambria, we created an abundance of attractive counter space. We revived the kitchen with IKEA Lidingo white kitchen cabinetry. Storage and usable space would never be a problem for them again. Using Cemento Dark Grey floor tile we were able to tie together the colour scheme. While the stainless steel of the Allora from Delta complimented the dark counters, the gorgeous lights cast a modern glow and created a beautiful centerpiece for the renovation.
LindenCraft was able to provide a modern transformation that will impress guests, family, and even the dog for ages. Our clients put their already shattered trust in our hands, and we were able to mend it with delivered promises and a delightful result.
