Western Canadian designers give their best advice for a pretty and practical kitchen (with photo evidence, of course).
We know “the kitchen is the heart of the home” is a tried phrase, but there is truth in every cliché (you really shouldn’t judge a book by its cover). We tapped some of the best designers in Western Canada for their advice on making the heart functional, beautiful and unique: here are six designer tips for a stunning modern kitchen.
Don’t be afraid of mixing natural materials with bold colours: this kitchen by AndreaJae Studio proves that it can be done beautifully. See more of this Vancouver kitchen.
Gillian Segal designs a space that is just as glamourous as it is laid-back: see more of this Palm Beach kitchen.
Pretty and practical (you can have it all): that’s the mantra in this Yaletown kitchen designed by Atmosphere Interior Design. Learn more about this space.
Laneway homes don’t offer much in terms of square footage, but designer Rebecca Foster made the most of the space. See more of this light-filled kitchen in North Vancouver.
This Bowen Island home was built in the ’70s, and designer Andrew Barker honoured those groovy roots. Check out more of this avocado-coloured kitchen.
A beachy coastal home by Jenny Martin Design uses natural materials to achieve old-world charm: more photos here.
