Interior Design — A Two-Toned Kitchen Makeover



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.

  1. It's unbelievable how you transformed the old kitchen in something that is so cohesive. I love the color pallette especially the wood accents!

  2. The full wall of cabinet in front of the sink will annoys me a lot…you will have your face at few inch of the door when you do your dishes. Unless you like to rest you forehead on it.

    The sink is directly below a wall cabinet. Thats never a good idea.

  4. There's only one small window in the kitchen but the kitchen itself is acutally nice

  5. This might be a dumb question but how do you hang the floating shelves without messing up the backsplash?

  6. The sink facing a wall with cabinets above seems a little strange to me
