Kitchen Renovations Coquitlam: Updating Cabinets, Floors, Lighting

The warm-toned, Canadian-sourced engineered hardwood flooring in this Coquitlam home renovation project makes the whole house feel more welcoming to family and guests.

The blue multi-accented handmade glass tile backsplash in the kitchen and coordinating blue kitchen island cabinetry adds interest in the space.

We added two adjacent pantries (a walk-in pantry for storage, and a walk-through butlers pantry for servicing the dining room and drink preparation.

The upper glass cabinets in the kitchen were replaced with glass display doors to complement the high ceilings. The elegant coffered detail adds a touch of elegance, and the timeless brushed nickel hardware provides just the right amount of detail.

Adding to the elegance is the custom, Canadian-made light fixture above the kitchen island which adds a modern dynamic to the transitional space.

Providing Functional Space

To accommodate a larger great room space, we installed new steel beams and reconfigured the central stairway.

We moved the more formal dining room to the front of the house. It’s accessible through the new butler’s pantry.

This new configuration, with an eating nook added beside the kitchen, allows for a seamless flow between the family room and the newly opened kitchen and eating area.

To make cooking and being organized more enjoyable, we added a recycling pull-out, a magic corner, spice pull-outs, tray dividers, and lift-up doors. It’s details like these that are important to consider when doing kitchen renovations.
