This gorgeous traditional styled kitchen is nestled nicely in the home, near beautiful Patterson Creek, in Ottawa’s Glebe neighborhood, just south of the downtown area in the Capital Ward.
The kitchen is comprised of a clean and simplistic five-piece shaker door, but boasts an elegant Alpine White lacquer finish, with equally elegant, weathered nickel hardware. Viscount White Granite finishes off the perimeter cabinets while the island is topped with a warm maple butcher block. The combination of black and white granite paired with warm wood accents add depth and warmth to the otherwise neutral décor; a décor that provokes a calming atmosphere, perfect for after a long day’s work.
The soothing nature of the soft hued finishes, including the cabinetry, backsplash, and countertops, is accentuated by well-placed lighting that consists of pot lights and vintage-style pendants that preside over the island and dining table. The island is clad in matching décor paneling and cornered by two large turned posts, both elements serving to emphasize the traditional nature of the space.
The historic architecture of this home is balanced perfectly with modern conveniences like the stainless-steel range hood centered between tiled wall-niches. Semi-Antique glass cabinets break up the white cabinetry and provide opportunity to highlight treasured dishware. A simple cove crown molding adds a hint of traditional while the flush light valance almost disappears in the details.
In a nod to the history of the home, a custom larder pantry is built into a niche leading to the dining room. Complete with rustic wood shelves and granite countertops, the larder acts as a sneak peak to the beautiful kitchen beyond.
Not to be forgotten, banquette seating adjacent the kitchen cabinetry completes this space and adds an additional element of functionality to a space that already exudes a custom and built-in ambiance.
