Kerrisdale Vancouver Splendor – Kitchen
As living in Vancouver becomes more pricey, we see more families opting to live in multi-generational homes. While it’s wonderful to have three generations living under one roof, the additional bodies can create functionality challenges. This family needed a livable, more functional space, to accommodate their large family as well as to create a space for a live-in nanny. See the full gallery here.
The biggest change on the main floor was the kitchen. We moved it from one side of the house to the opposite side. It is now over double its original size, allowing the entire family to be together during meal prep and meal times. Look at the before and after photos and just try to figure all that out!
The contrasting light and dark millwork in the kitchen countertops and cabinets, provides interest to the space. To create a seamless design in the kitchen, the marble counters continue as the kitchen backsplash. The large kitchen island has more than enough space for meal prep, including a small prep sink, and room for 4 to sit comfortably, with plenty of elbow room.
Throughout the main floor of the home, we installed soft-grey, wide-plank hardwood flooring that matches perfectly with the new light and dark colour scheme. The crystal accents in the lights throughout the home reflect the light, ties the spaces together, and adds a little sparkle.
