A small U-shaped kitchen transforms into a head turning galley kitchen.
the problem: a small, impractical kitchen space
This large kitchen renovation in Camrose involved removing several walls to create a functional, open concept, galley kitchen with island seating, dining area and visiting area with a wood burning fireplace.
STEP ONE: Open up the space
This kitchen renovation was part of a large, main floor renovation. A total of 5 walls were removed; both doors to outside were exchanged for larger doors that hinged on the proper side; we added one window; closed in one window; and replaced all the other windows. It was important to incorporate colour into the kitchen and we just so happen to LOVE this minty tone so the choice was obvious!
STEP TWO: ADD FUNCTIONAL CABINETRY & Layout
This kitchen was completed using Merit Kitchens cabinetry with all the fun inserts; spice pull out, tall pantry pull out, roll out pantry shelves, serveware drawer dividers, utensil dividers, garbage pull out, and recycling bin pull out. My favourite part of my kitchen is how the layout functions! The dishes are stored close to the dishwasher which is near the kitchen table; anything I need when I’m at the stove is near the stove; and everything prep related is stored where I prep… makes sense, right?! The coffee bar under the window is another favourite feature in our kitchen as well as the recycling center that is built-in to a nook by the backdoor.
