Quail Creek Kitchen

This kitchen was featured on the popular home design inspiration site, Houzz (won “Best of Houzz” for design), and on Kitchens & Bath magazine and has continued to impress for its timeless appeal. Our clients are big entertainers and love to be surrounded by family and friends, so we turned their tight, closed-in kitchen and opened it up to the rest of the living space. The new kitchen now has improved flow & functionality and includes a myriad of clever storage solutions!

What makes people gravitate towards the kitchen when entertaining? An open space with warm touches and ample space for seating make this an ideal space for guests to mingle.


This run of cabinetry hides a multitude of storage solutions. When planning for your own kitchen, keep a list of items that need a home and where they will likely be used. Organization does not happen by accident – we like to carefully consider how our clients work in our kitchen and design accordingly.


Ét voila! Built-in storage solutions make a kitchen functional and a pleasure to work in. We like using pull-outs as it is more ergonomic to pull heavier items towards you than reaching in for them. A double garbage pull-out allows you to sort and hide unsightly messes. An appliance garage tucks away small appliances that would normally clutter up valuable counter space.


A decorative wood hood and inset tile draw the eye to the corner focal point. Corners can often be underutilized; placing a stove in the corner makes it more functional.


This warm granite called “Juparana Persa” is a perfect complement to the all-white cabinetry and brings an element of coziness to the design.


A built-in fridge and broom closet to the right of the stove balances the appliance and wall microwave centre to the left of the stove. Decorative panels, crown moulding and a fridge surround give cabinetry the look of furniture.


A pull-out broom closet is cleverly hidden behind pantry-style doors. Brooms and other cleaning implements are often forgotten when planning for storage; by tucking them away in custom-built racks, they are less likely to clutter up the kitchen.


The view from the dining room, which was originally divided by a wall and a small doorway, shows the expanse of the large kitchen. A decorative niche built in to the back of the island allocates a display area for cookbooks and other décor accents.


A similar colour palette running through the dining room and kitchen unifies the two spaces. The luminous granite with gold and cream graining brings together the home’s colour scheme.


Planning a built-in electrical socket to the island expands your workspace. Operating small appliances like blenders and slow cookers are no longer confined to the perimeter wall; the island is a great place for these activities, especially right beside the clean-up zone of the sink area.


A beverage centre and computer/communication station is perfect for the wall that serves as the transition between the dining, kitchen and family rooms. Guests can serve themselves at the bar without getting the way of the main action in the kitchen. Glass-fronted cabinetry adds a more decorative element to functional storage. A small bar sink allows for minor prep work for serving drinks.


A closer look at this elegant bar area show custom touches such as the slide-in stemware rack, the decorative glass doors, the wine rack shelf and the built-in wine fridge.


Our award-winning photo that has won “Best of Houzz” for Design and been saved to over 80, 000 ideabooks. What is perhaps most appealing about this design is the unique computer/communication centre that adds another purpose to the bar area. In our increasingly tech-connected world, computers are no longer shut away in the office, so why not have a dedicated space for the desktop? It’s the perfect spot for menu-planning, answering quick emails or catching up on today’s news!
