Old Ottawa South – Kitchen & Dining Room Renovation

The main goals of this project were to modernize the kitchen and dining room, create a versatile area, and maximize space for our music-loving clients. The main floor suffered from a lack of cohesiveness, sagging ceilings, water damage, and cramped rooms.

Achieving our goals began with removing the wall separating the kitchen from the dining room to create one large, cohesive space flooded with gentle LED pot lighting and under-cabinet recessed puck lighting. A new doorway was also added from the hall to the dining area. New casement windows bring even more light into the kitchen.

A consistent, geometric theme was kept throughout, interrupted only by the beautiful, re-finished winding staircase. The new, stained oak handrail complements the floor while the wrought iron spindles contrast nicely with the white risers and stringers.

Key changes to the kitchen include re-locating the sink to be in the entertainment area and adding a splash of warmth with the wood grain-theme pantry. Smart use of space adds yet more pantry to the left of the fridge. Eco-friendly granite adds sharp contrast to the cabinetry and backsplash.

The custom box mantle creates a break in the fireplace surround tile and ties the family room warmth to that of the kitchen pantry and floor maintaining cohesive design.

Satin white glass doors take advantage of the many windows throughout this home. The entrance closet pot lights shine through the glass in the otherwise only room with little natural light. Energy-efficient, modern LED ceiling lights and pot lights are this home’s final touch to a stunning, modern revival.
