Kitchen Renovations

Your Toronto Kitchen Renovation Contractor

Kitchens Renovations today in Toronto homes' and condos' are drastically different from the past; they now usually require extensive improvements to accommodate today's changed lifestyles. They involve numerous upgrades that are needed for expanded cooking areas within the home, as well as substantial electrical, plumbing, and HVAC work to support improved appliances and lighting requirements. 

The most common upgrade is the open concept. Walls are now being removed and the kitchen is becoming part of the living area. Kitchen countertops are also now mostly solid surface materials that include materials such as engineered quartz, granite, wood, and stainless steel. They are easy to clean and allow for under mount sinks that are very much desired. The kitchen island (with seating and large work surface areas) acts as a social connection between kitchen and living activities. And appliances and finish materials are now far more practical and aesthetically appealing, as they are in full view of the living area. Improved lighting and electrical has also played an important part; potlights, additional outlets, and undercounter LED lighting are typical additions to even the most basic kitchen.

There are also various styles and designs to consider when renovating your kitchen. From contemporary and modern, to traditional, Ashton Renovations can achieve your vision to compliment the style of your home, and your personal preferences for design.

Traditional IKEA Kitchen Renovation
in Little Italy

This is an excellent choice of design for any kitchen renovation in Toronto. Using a galley kitchen layout, colonial white cabinet doors from IKEA, and contrasting quartz countertops, this remodel will stand the test of time. Originally, this kitchen was closed off from the rest of the house with a bearing wall dividing it from the dining room, and a block wall partially cutting off the view to the backyard. Both were removed making the first floor an entire open concept, bright, and spacious.

Modern Kitchen Renovation in Downtown Toronto Condominium

This beautiful Downtown Toronto condo, with magnificent views of the city, and Toronto Island, required some updates to the original kitchen. There were space & storage issues mainly, and much of the upper cabinets were open and not very functional. The kitchen island also needed to be transformed into a functional area with proper storage as well.

Our clients really wanted to transform this space into a beautiful modern kitchen with clean lines and warm wood accents, while including a number of automated features. This was achieved with Sub Zero refrigeration and wine cooling, along with enhanced Miele cooking features. They include an induction stove with steam features, and a built in speed oven.

This kitchen also features touch faucet controls, Casetta Wireless, and Lutron Serena wireless shades to assist with bright southern exposures.

Mount Dennis Toronto Kitchen Renovation

When we came out to see Sherry & Carlos it was evident that they loved their home. It was cozy, close to work, and had a really wonderful backyard. What they really wanted now was an open concept kitchen with a view to their garden. We sat down with them and designed a very functional, contemporary space, with lots of light. Their new kitchen would have a peninsula (along with seating) and just enough room to put a table by their window and under newly installed skylights. There were some challenges through the project with unexpected repairs, but we all persevered and the final space is a fantastic improvement. We all here at Ashton Renovations hope you enjoy your new kitchen for years to come!

Traditional Semi-Custom Kitchen Renovation
on the Danforth

Semi-Custom kitchens refer to cabinets made to order and offered at big box stores such as Home Depot and Lowes. The most common manufacturers are Thomasville and Kraftmaid. The advantage of these type of cabinets is a larger availability of cabinets sizes, styles, finishes, and trim pieces. 

The focus of this Toronto remodel was to foremost open up the space. This was done by partially removing the wall between the kitchen and dining room. In addition, the size of the kitchen was increased by wrapping the countertop around into the back entrance of the house where previously a pantry was located. The style of the kitchen is traditional with the most salient feature of the cabinetry being a dark rustic accent in the door panels. It is well accompanied with the brushed bronze finishes. Semi-Custom cabinets were an excellent choice for this kitchen, which required unique cabinet sizes.

Modern IKEA Kitchen Renovation in Leslieville

This modern kitchen renovation incorporated a large island and opened into the back area of the home, a common layout to this area of the city. The design also added a touch of colour and vibrancy with the glass backsplash, bright green upper cabinets, and intricate glass chandelier. The symmetry with the hood and cabinets on either side really pulled the kitchen together. This type of modern IKEA design is typical with white gloss slab cabinetry.

Modern Luxury Kitchen Renovation

Nominated for 2019 BEST KITCHEN by NKBA & HOMES Publishing Group

The original kitchen in this condominium was renovated arising from the need to replace Kitec plumbing. The work triangle remained generally the same, but numerous changes were made to improve the kitchen’s functionality, aesthetics, and lighting. Automation was also introduced. The goal was to design and build a modern contemporary functional kitchen with inspiring colours accented with textured wood features.

The functionality was improved with the addition of an under counter microwave, which freed up countertop space. Additional and improved storage was also created by incorporating under cabinet drawers throughout the kitchen, a bar area with open glass shelving above, and open shelving to the right of the seating area. Upper cabinet storage was as well increased with storage above the fridge.
