Two Tone Burlington kitchen remodel

Mixing the elegant grey and white

Kitchen Design

This family oriented Burlington bungalow had a dark ikea kitchen where the family have lived here for 15 years. It was time to do an update for the kitchen. After speaking with the Burlington couple, we focused on opening up the space while not compromising the storage.


Two Tone Burlington Kitchen Remodel


The previous kitchen cabinets were charcoal grey with a laminate countertop. The existing kitchen also lacks drawer space and there is no rangehood for the ventilation. There are also a few posts in the kitchen connected with half wall and peninsula. Light fixtures in the kitchen were outdated with the pot lights not well positioned within the space.


One of the focuses in this Burlington kitchen remodel is to weaken the visual effects of the posts in the space. We took down a non-structure half wall to open up an extra space for a full size island. This large island is an essential component of this space. This island is positioned to face the French window, it will be a great focal point for the house. It  will also be used as a resting area when guests exit the swimming pool in the back. We selected grey to the owner’s preference as the primary tone of the kitchen and complemented with a few white cabinets brighten it up. We also relocated the stove to a different side of the wall so we can build a ventilation system to remove odors and grease.

In terms of accessories, we added two pull out spice racks to allow more storage for spices and seasonings, it’s positioned beside the stove to allow easy access. We then adjusted the lighting, we added a recessed light above the sink to illuminate the sink space. Lastly we have chosen a timeless white subway tile to compliment the white cabinets since the grey floor tile already complimented the island. It The Backsplash is an elegant addition to any space and ideal to create a durable kitchen. The backsplash was built with a brick pattern to add more design elements in this Burlington Kitchen space.
