CANADIAN HOME TRENDS CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE KITCHEN’S DESIGN?

ANNIE KANG We wanted to create a multi-purpose space with an island designed to be used as a food prep area, dining table, work table, breakfast nook, bar and entertaining area with a great backyard view. We also included an open shelf cabinet unit to house cookbooks and decorative elements! The use of two simple, contrasting colors, in a polished high-gloss finish, results in a space that is both dramatic and exquisite. Using the same black for the surround moulding brings the kitchen together.

CHT HOW DO YOU DESIGN AN ON-TREND YET TIMELESS KITCHEN?

AK Slab doors are a timeless trend we have seen at Lucvaa since the company started in 2007. With all the advancements in technology, there are thousands of melamine products to choose from. The price range is wide so it can work with nearly any budget. You can choose from a range of colors, sheens and textures. Your choice of flat, high gloss to concrete, wood or metal textures will customize the look to suit your personal style.

CHT WHERE DID YOU SAVE AND WHERE DID YOU SPLURGE?

AK We saved on decorative hardware by choosing a Slab MDF Door with touch-to-open functionality. This gives the space a clean, modern look. We spent more of the budget for the cabinets’ aesthetic finishes and accessories to optimize the organization of the cabinetry. We used drawer organizers, pull-out pantry units, and pull-out spice racks. The homeowner chose to splurge on the countertops and the finishing touches for the space.

CHT CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE HOMEOWNERS?

AK The homeowner is a big pet lover so we included a pull-out feeding station for her pets. When she is entertaining, the feeding station disappears into the island.
