Kitchen Reno: Before & After

Here at Copper Island Fine Homes, we do a lot of extensive, whole-home renovations. And experience tells us that one of the main outcomes desired by our renovation clients is a modern, spacious kitchen. In fact, it’s one of the most cited reasons our clients give us for undertaking these types of makeovers.

That’s certainly been the case on a whole-home renovation that we’re currently in the final stages of in Celista. The original 2,600 square foot home was built in the early 90s, and the kitchen was typical for the day — small, cramped, and dark, with inexpensive cabinetry and millwork. Needless to say, the owners envisioned something much more modern and luxurious, and that’s exactly what we’ve given them.

Check out the dramatic before and after photos below. Gone are the sunshine ceiling lighting, the small and dark cabinets, the cramped layout, and the dated appliances. We knocked down a wall at the rear of the old kitchen and utilized space from a small utility area and hallway to create this impressive culinary space. The gleaming white cabinets (installed by Renaissance from Salmon Arm) and quartz countertops are complemented by new stainless appliances and a huge contrasting-colour island which offers a focal area. New engineer flooring completes the room.

We’re handing over the project next week to our clients, and we couldn’t be happier with how this renovation has been done — particularly the kitchen! Our thanks to our clients for their vision, our trusted sub-trades, and our staff.
