Patterson House

In this long, narrow '90s traditional home, the dining room was dark and unused because of the adjacent closed kitchen. Removing the kitchens’ two non-structural walls revealed the dramatic water view through the living room. A large kitchen window and the addition of three stainless take-a-peek portal windows now provide natural light to the dining space. The use of natural materials helps achieve a warm look. Upper cabinet doors of acid-etched glass framed in aluminium communicate an almost transparent feeling. A change in glass texture and sculptural handle marks the location of good china and crystal. In-cabinet lighting and glass shelves help with the transmission of ambient light into the kitchen. A change in depth of the upper cabinets -- 19 inches, up from the usual 12 inches -- allows for extra storage. Outlets are concealed in a power strip tucked under the upper cabinets beside the task lighting. Behind the matte-finished, vertical grain cherry drawer fronts, varying depths accommodate storage of goods of different heights. Stainless toe-kick drawers with integrated foot pulls offer bonus storage for flat and canned goods (including hockey skates tucked under the closet). Cherry pilaster strips frame the cabinets, dishwasher and refrigerator, unifying the overall appearance of the room. This look was enlarged for the closet area for dramatic effect and to conceal the relocation of the upstairs air ducts. The closet contains several drawers for storing gloves, scarves, boots and rollerblades. Door-triggered lights make for easy viewing into a bottom corner cabinet and the front hall closet. - See more at: http://www.denys.ca/work-kitchens-patterson.php#sthash.DIS7S8xv.dpuf
