From the beginning, Ivyhouse and the client had a clear vision for this kitchen renovation: classic and simple, with a contemporary edge. The goal of this kitchen renovation was to maximize function and storage in a small space. To achieve this, custom cabinetry was essential. Space saving solutions were implemented that combined function and aesthetics, such as a pull out pantry designed to appear as a post, curved countertops to maximize clearances and an extended countertop into the living room to serve as an eating bar for extra seating.
