Sieguzi Interior Designs is a design firm in Toronto Canada headed by Robin – an interior designer & certified kitchen designer. We are so lucky to have her as one of experts at the upcoming SpaKitchen tweetchat. And I absolutely adore how she kept the personality of this kitchen renovation while giving the family everything they needed to relax and repast to the max! Hear it in the designer’s words in the article below.
PS: I agree with Robin about the cork flooring she used. It is so warm and comfy on the feet & eco friendly! Super SpaHome kitchen.
Before & After
A Kitchen Update that Keeps its Charm
If you’ve been following the saga in Robin’s Nest of the 80 year old kitchen we’re renovating, you may recognize the photos here. While Peter & Jean’s kitchen was full of charm and character, it lacked functionality and space. So we were hired to help them increase storage, working counter space, improve flow and organization while remaining true to their home’s historical architectural details.
By the way, the flooring in the new kitchen is cork, a material that you might know is one of my favourites! It’s as versatile, durable and economical as it is attractive and it’s environmentally responsible, too!
Closing in a small back porch which added 18 square feet to the kitchen’s footprint, eliminating the arch between kitchen and breakfast nook and creating a large opening in the wall to the dining room has made a world of difference to the space. Instead of the cramped tired kitchen of the past, its move into the future is open and functional and ready for a party!
