Brooklin Antique-Inspired Kitchen

Designed for a big family who loves to entertain, a large island and open concept were a must.

By removing a structural wall, we were able to create an open concept living space that allowed the kitchen to flow seamlessly with the rest of the main floor. A structural post had to be added, but with careful and detailed planning, we were able to incorporate it into the island.

Bench seating and a custom-built hutch helped the kitchen flow effortlessly into the dining area. The hutch was painted the same colour as the island and accented with 100-year-old corbels the client found at Legacy Antique Market in Cobourg.

A love for antiques was carried throughout the space with vintage, handcrafted wrought iron handles used on the island. To complement these, glass pulls and crystal knobs accented with antique bronze were selected for the cabinets.

Carrerra marble hex tiles were selected for the backsplash to give the kitchen even more of a vintage feel.

We selected a white silgranite sink to give the Caesarstone quartz countertops a seamless look.

Finally, medium colour hand-scraped solid maple floors added character and flow to the space.

The end result was a space that effortlessly mixed new and old details in a way that added character and charm to this much-used area of the client’s home.
