Cedarglen Kitchen Remodel - Demo and Install in Mississauga

This seems to be the month for kitchens with the team working tirelessly to complete the Jeffcoat Kitchen in Etobicoke and the Cedarglen Kitchen in Mississauga. The Cedarglen kitchen is nearly complete with just a little trim work left and then it's on to the professional pictures.

The kitchen started off as a builder's grade kitchen and was a dated brown and white space with mismatched counter tops, ceramic tiles with a green hint and white  appliances.

We tore out the cabinets and tiled floor and went down to the Oriented Strand sub-floor. Behind the cabinets we found the usual shortcuts along with a few techniques that we had never seen before such as using a hammer as a stud finder when mounting cabinets......


As this is a stacked townhouse we had many constraints such as walls, casings, doorways etc. We put the design together using IKEA'a planning software, but  had to revert to Sketchup to include non IKEA items such as the apron front farmhouse sink and IKEA modifications such as a custom 35" wall cabinet with integral drawers and a 10" cabinet using a drawer front as the door. Other modifications was to build in a floor-to-ceiling pantry with a combination of tall and short cabinets filled with drawers.


The countertop is Juparna Delicatus and blends nicely with the 2 x 12 Glass Subway tile in silver grey with light grey grout. The floor tiles are 24 x 24 polished Porcelain in White.


Other modifications were the addition of under-counter lighting, recessed lighting in the ceiling and a central ceiling fitting. Dimmers were added throughout for lighting control.

We will have the professional pics soon but until then follow along on Instagram or Facebook and don't forget to sign up for our newsletter where we promise to send you only the good stuff!
