This client had lived in her condominium for 29 years and wanted a kitchen refresh. The space was small, cramped and dark, with no exterior windows. An opening above her stove, into the adjoining den, provided a limited amount of natural light. Her original goal was to keep the existing footprint, change the cabinetry and expand the small opening by a few inches to allow a little more light into the room. She liked the orange colour of the kitchen walls and wanted cabinetry with flat panels to coordinate with the built-in bookcases in a small alcove near the entrance to the kitchen.
