Vancouver Peninsula Before and After

PROBLEMS: This bland kitchen, in a custom 1994 home, needed serious help. It had laminate countertops, tile floors, and white cabinets. After a conservatory was built and a beautiful garden created, the homeowners realized that the cooktop and sink were in the wrong place. There was a large built-in banquette that dominated the kitchen. The homeowners had grown tired of the wallpapered soffits and the non-dimmable fluorescent lighting.

CREATIVE SOLUTIONS: A major remodel made this a custom traditional sparkling kitchen! The layout was changed to capture the garden view, and to facilitate conversation. New custom cabinets, a combination of natural alder and off-white with a glaze, add visual interest and great storage. The focal point of the room is the sweeping, curved peninsula with engineered stone countertop, enhanced by LED lights under the cap overhang to provide great dimmable task, ambient, and accent lighting. It really sparkles!

TESTIMONIAL: We are pleased and amazed at Diane’s ability to hear what we wanted to create in our kitchen and master bath. Our kitchen remodel was a challenge to say the least. After working with several other designers and trying to draw plans ourselves, the designs kept coming up short of what we wanted. When we worked with Diane, not only did she come up with a design that fits our needs and wants, but also gave us many new features that we will enjoy for years to come. We are so happy with our results and highly recommend Diane Plesset for your designing needs.
