OakWood Wins Prestigious Provincial Award of Distinction!
The OHBA (Ontario Home Builders Association) has chosen OakWood renovation Experts as the recipient for the “Most Outstanding Renovation (Client Cost up to $100,000)” for their OakWood Kitchen Renovation in Rockliffe Park
Here is a description of the project details, and how OakWood created the kitchen renovation project:
These home owners were ecstatic about their new purchase of their old Rockliffe Park home. But buying an old home meant that renovations were to be involved, especially in the kitchen area. The homeowner’s dreamed of having a very classical style kitchen that would accommodate their growing family.
The home located in Rockliffe Park, one of Ottawa’s most prestigious and historical neighbourhoods, had some small issues. During the renovation process wooden beams were found with mold in the ceiling because of an apparent leak. The renovator had to replace the wooden beams and patch the leak to prevent further mold from growing.
The main aspect of having this kitchen renovated was to have an open concept where the family could easily interact, therefore the renovator decided to create the eating and cooking area on the same counter. The lower part of the countertop holds a large gas-powered cook top and hood vent which overlooks an elevated part of the counter to accommodate long stools and eating area. A built-in microwave and oven makes this new space look very sleek. The reverse side of the oven showcases a closet for convenient storage. Very obscure countertops with a very pale brick pattern back-splash tile gives the room the classic look the home owner’s were looking for. Finally very light cabinets finish the room to match the light yellow paint colour on the walls.
A large wooden dinning room table was placed in front of a sliding patio door to finish the décor. The old home now held a new kitchen that matched the neighbourhood’s style.
