As shown by this Ottawa, Canada, kitchen, downsizing does not have to mean compromise. Completed by Nathan Kyle of locally based Astro Design Center, the design of this new-build home circled around the planning of a dream kitchen and its proximity to the historic Rideau River.
Kitchen & Bath Designer, Nathan Kyle, was asked by these homeowners to transform their white kitchen into a space that felt more cozy and comfortable, as oppose to sterile clean. As a certified Kitchen and Bath specialist with award-winning designs at GOHBA’s & NKBA’s, plus 5 years of design experience under his belt, Nathan was the perfect fit for the project.
See how it all came together, resulting in a major transformation!! We couldn't even believe it ourselves.
"The Kitchen in this 1940s Ottawa cottage was big enough for only one person to use and not suitable for the family now living there. “Before, this kitchen was about the size of a bathroom and was lackluster,” says interior designer Nathan Kyle of Astro Design Centre. Kyle began the design process by learning how the family likes to function in the kitchen when working together, then set up the layout accordingly. He took down a wall and incorporated into the kitchen a side entry hallway that had been a waste of space. He also added luxe elements that suit the family’s love of eclectic and contemporary style. Rich wood finishes and a lively backsplash provide a beautiful backdrop for a display of intricate pieces they brought to Canada from Iran and create a timeless look." - Becky Harris, Houzz
