Kitchen Cabinet Solutions Creates Beautiful, Modern Kitchen

We're in Kawartha Cottage Magazine! Check out the article for this beautiful kitchen.

‘Details!’ was the name of the game when Camiel and Wendy were planning their complete kitchen renovation. Their original kitchen, built in 1997, was pink, of all colours, and it was dark and small and difficult to work with.

Creating a bright, high functioning kitchen became the focus of their redesign.

Camiel owns and operates Vintner’s Cellar, Peterboroughs’s premium wine making destination, and he met his kitchen designer through work.

“My business was located in the same plaza as Kitchen Cabinet Solutions,” says Camiel. “I’d gotten to know owner Brenda Perry and we turned to her when it was time for a new kitchen.”

“Camiel and Wendy were wonderful clients- they knew what they wanted and were open to suggestions,” say Brenda. “Their new kitchen is a bright, airy space with lots of light filtering through.”

Getting there, was no small feat.

“Camiel and Wendy’s previous kitchen had many challenges, such as an angled wall that was difficult to deal with,” says Brenda. “I suggested that we create a custom pantry on an angle, with all of the tall appliances on that wall – the fridge, wall oven and microwave along with pantry cabinets - to present a clean, efficient look.”

She also suggested removing the wall between the kitchen and the dining room to open up the space.And replacing the kitchen window with a picture window to let in more light. Instead of an island, they went with a peninsula to make the most of the space, and they topped it with gorgeous Cosentino
‘Ocean Storm’ quartz to add warmth, interest and movement to the space.

The showstopper in this kitchen is the perfectly placed island hood.

“It was a lot of work!” says Camiel, who spent many hours installing it. “It’s a lot of weight to support in the ceiling.” Meant to act as an island hood, they opted to use it between the dining room and the kitchen, creating a half wall between the two rooms to showcase the hood. The result is absolutely
stunning and the most cleaver use of space.

“The new kitchen is night and day compared to the old one,” says Camiel. “It has certainly changed the whole look and feel of the house and added a lot of value. Brenda and her team were great to work with and their installer, Adam was impressive. He was an artist with the detailed

The cabinets are a Shaker style in white with brushed nickel handles and solid wood dovetail drawers. Great use of accessories optimize every square inch of space. Tricky spots such as a corner cupboard have Lazy Susans inside to make use of the under-utilized space. The storage capacity of the cabinets
has more than doubled with carefully placed rollout shelves, utensil trays and shelving. The subway tile backsplash has a textured, 3D-look in white to blend in with the colour scheme of the cabinets.

“I am thrilled with the final result,” says Brenda. “Now when you enter the front door, you can see right into the stunning kitchen and family room at the back. I really enjoy helping clients create their own unique dream kitchen that reflect their lifestyle within a budge they can afford.”
