Out Of Sight Kitchen
For many urban homeowners the ideal kitchen is one that manages to completely hide away when not in use. No unsightly stove top grills, no small appliances crowding the counters, no fridge making its presence known in a bold stainless steel statement. That’s the challenge facing Candice as she tackles a small, out-of-date, shocking pink kitchen for a couple who desire a seamless flow from the front of their beautiful little home right through to the back. In the biggest renovation of the season Candice creates a fabulous kitchen that is there only when it’s needed, and the results are out of sight.
