Designer Linnea Lions tours a kitchen she designed in homeowner Chantal McKinnon’s 100-year-old home. Learn how she maximized space and storage in a closed kitchen layout while keeping style in mind.
When Chantal first moved into this home, the kitchen lacked function, had dated appliances and was in need of a modern update. She wanted a two-tone kitchen with light uppers and dark grey lower cabinets for a graphic yet airy feel. The space also needed additional storage. The first thing Linnea tackled was hiding the chimney stack with a pantry wall featuring shallow cabinets and pull-out storage. Right next to it, a servery was created with open shelving and a full-height backsplash. A large island with storage grounds the space, and is perfect for entertaining guests. Floating shelves made from reclaimed wood add warmth to the grey and white palette.
