Kitchens and how they can be renovated

It is the heart of the home.

Kitchen Renovation Edmonton

Kitchen renovations can take on a life of their own. If the kitchen is the heart of the home then to give it life the cabinets, floor, walls and ceiling must be everything else.
Design starts with function and ends with form. If a wall needs to move and can be moved within a budget... let’s move it. Good design will never go out of style, it’s the colours and textures that keep us evolving.

So maybe you are limited to the existing geometry.
Off the shelf base cabinets are typically 24 inches deep and 36 inches from the floor to the top of the work surface. A typical 18” space between the lower and upper cabinets and those cabinets are in the range of 12 inches deep with heights from 15, 24, 30, 36 and 42 inches, what do you do?
Making it a bigger challenge, you might be limited to a room that is 7’-6” x 11’-0”? Not a large space to create the dream kitchen and even worse when you throw in two entrances, a window and just for fun the wall jogs for the central furnace chimney.

Options:
1) Move to a bigger house.
2) Add onto the house.
3) Move the chimney.
4) Close a doorway.
5) Remove a window.
6) Customize some cabinets and countertops

If option #1 was not an option, then budget pending all the other options are viable.
Time and a few dollars needs to be spent on function design first… the form will be organic and come as the concept is developed. Working around structure and existing trade related items including plumbing, heating and electrical paths of resistance can be over come.
