The word “bungalow” is a very light, bright, and airy one reminiscent of easy summer days spent running through a sprinkler or usual walks by the beach, and yet the original kitchen in this 1960’s Huntington Hills bungalcw was outdated, and entirely lacking in functionality. A simple spatial reconfiguration, complete with new finishes and appliances changed the entire feeling of this home, transformilg it into the desirably fun and cozy space that its name implies.
SIZE – 315 Sq.Ft
AREA – Kitchen & Dinning Room
The removal of a wall between the kitchen and dining room was a major component of the transformation, creating a room absolutely full to the brim with sunlight with a flow that works impeccably for this family. Finished in light grey, white, and warm wood tones with crisp, clean lines, the new kitchen and dining space are simple with a nod to mid-century modern. The neutrality provides the perfect backdrop for colourful accessories and happy moments spent with family and friends.
This renovation is a perfect example of how a small budget can still produce dramatic results. The homeowners wanted to use IKEA cabinets but did not want the space to feel like an IKEA kitchen. We achieved this by incorporating warm butcher-block countertops, classic white square ceramic wall tiles, and refinished original oak hardwood floors. The clients also wanted to get in on the fun and were invaluable in sourcing finishes and fixtures for this project, helping to stretch the budget as far as possible and adding the magic ingredient to highly successful renovations – a personal touch.
