There are three major styles to consider while planning a kitchen renovation in Vaughan or surrounding area:
This style was inspired by Mediterranean, English, and French Designs. It makes use of rich woods, warm colours and symmetrical lines; featuring natural materials such as stone countertops. A traditional kitchen reminds you of turkey on Thanksgiving, ham on Christmas Eve and chocolate chip cookies after school.
Quiet, muted colours determine the looks of a sleek, sexy and sophisticated modern kitchen. Cool metals such as stainless steel and straight minimalistic lines are some of the characteristics of this type of space. They tend to be efficient and utilitarian, and designed to keep clutter to a minimum.
It projects balance and harmony between the warmth and welcome of the traditional design and the clean, simple lines of the modern style. The transitional kitchen offers a great deal of flexibility to homeowners that don't want to be confined to just one style.
My wife wanted to renovate our kitchen, after calling a few companies I contacted Lucas Richard Design. After speaking with the designer, and seeing some of their previous work, I decided to go with them. It was definitely a good call. Our new kitchen is perfect. A big centre island, top of the line cabinetry, brand new appliances, and an amazing back splash. My wife and I love it, and our friends can't stop talking about how amazing our new kitchen is. We are definitely recommend LRD as the best kitchen renovation service in Vaughan!

There are many factors to consider when planning your kitchen renovation such as paint colour, tile choices, and backsplashes, cabinets, sinks and faucets, etc. The functionality of the kitchen is as important as the design. The path between the sink, refrigerator, and the stove should form an equilateral triangle to make cooking comfortable. Make sure that the style of your kitchen fits in with the rest of your home.
When renovating your kitchen, you need to make sure that the plumbing is in good condition otherwise consider replacing it.
They need to be functional and accommodate all your kitchen needs, utensils, pots and pans and, of course food, in style while keeping everything reachable. Cooking, eating, homework, and relaxing are the main tasks at the kitchen so make sure there is enough space for all of them. They also give you an opportunity to inject your style and make your cooking process more enjoyable and efficient.
The sink should be large enough to accommodate large pots and pans. It should also be closed to the dishwasher. The faucet is the most important part of your sink, it should have a water-mixing valve and pull-out spray nozzles or a separate nozzle altogether.
Your dishwasher should be located to the right of your sink (if you are left-handed, to the left) and have counter space to the right as well.
Many materials can be used to cover walls and floors of your kitchen renovation, but you should consider durability and cleanliness of the materials. Depending on your style, there is ceramic, marble, granite for the walls to choose from. For your floors, consider large tiles, stone, cork, or wood. Wood is soft on your feet, but large tiles trap less food as they have very few seams and are easier to clean. Whatever your choice, when renovating, always remember that your kitchen floor should be durable and easy to clean.
One of the most important features of your kitchen renovation. Lights should be task-oriented and ambient friendly. Three types of lighting should be used: under-cabinet strips to light your counters, recessed lighting for general lighting and hanging lamps for islands and kitchen tables. All light fixtures should be dimmable so that the light can be adjusted for different needs and moods.
An exhaust hood for your stove can help ventilate your kitchen while cooking. Ventilation is very important to keep smells and grease off your walls and cabinets while helping you maintain a healthy home.
These appliances should suit your needs and fit your lifestyle in size and style. Don't forget that your cooking experience will be more enjoyable if the path between the stove, sink, and refrigerator form an equilateral triangle.
Choosing gas stove tops with low BTU output, Energy Star rating appliances and recycling are just a few things you can do to help the environment and to create a healthier world for your children.
