Today’s renovation makeover is located in Fredericton, at the residence of Peter & Holly McDougall. The homeowners wanted to brighten and refresh the space, with modern painted cabinets and staggered height sizing.
Peter & Holly sat down with Jim, Avondale’s Professional Kitchen Designer, to go over layout changes, designs and quotes, in a meeting at the McDougall home. In 2 hours, the whole package is complete. Here is a look at the proposed on-site hand drawing designs:
Take a look at the kitchen before. While the cabinets were in great shape, the wood was weighing down the space, and the green laminate counters had had their day:
The homeowners opted to add a wood island, keeping the warmth of the natural material, while brightening up the rest of the room with painted cabinets. The design has swapped out most of the lower doors with easier to access soft close drawers:
A before shot looking towards the patio doors, notice the panel at the left, which will be removed creating a better flow to the room:
Panel removed, opening up the kitchen from this view. Bulk heads have been removed, and the kitchen features open top crown upper cabinets, mixed with ceiling height cabinets:
The kitchen felt a bit crowed originally with two half walls separating the dining room and kitchen area:
Two stools at the island overhang give extra seating without taking up space:
Cutlery inserts next to the dishwasher keep all small utensils organized:
A high volume garbage can system allows you to keep your trash can off of the kitchen floor. Simply clip the bags into the drawer, and un-clip when ready to remove.
Large drawers can hold everything from plates, to small appliances to pots and pans and Tupperware. Heavy duty soft close slides keep the drawers running smoothly:
The panel in front of the sink flips down, for scrubbie and dishwasher tablet storage. Under the sink is a tea towel holder and pull out area for cleaning supplies:

What do u do with cabinets that r in great shape when removing from client’s home?
Often times our homeowners will either sell their cabinets on kijiji or donate to habitat for humanity.
