House tour: Fresh and fun family-friendly home
Before: An outdated kitchen
The outdated kitchen, with its heavy dark wooden cabinetry, pea green laminate countertops and broken appliances (“The stove had only two working burners,” says homeowner Travis Clarke), needed to be gutted and updated.
After: Bold and beautiful kitchen
Shaker-style cabinetry, quartz countertops, counter-to-ceiling herringbone marble tiles and stainless steel appliances all helped to shape this kitchen into the bold and beautiful space it is now. The white island provides a casual place to dine, separates the kitchen from the family room and balances all the blue.
A designer's touch
With the homeowners’ blessing to add colour to the house, designer Jillian Harris chose a striking cobalt blue for the kitchen cabinetry.
