After redesigning almost all the rooms of the house, these longstanding clients now wanted to renovate their kitchen. 

During a previous project, Valérie De L’Étoile had planned to reduce the adjacent living room to make the kitchen more spacious and contemporary. By expanding the kitchen and removing the wall that separated it from the dining room, Valérie could reorient the island to add stools in place of the old dining area. 

By adding a deep storage area all along the wall of the new refrigerator, the space is now adapted so as not to need wall cupboards. This helps create a clear look highlighting the backsplash and the restaurant-style range hood. 

Since the clients preferred different styles—she is a bit more traditional, while he is more appreciative of sleek lines—Valérie was able to strike the perfect balance with white, minimalist, shaker-style doors and timeless, high-quality materials. A new, contemporary design that will remain current for several years!
