Fresh Contemporary White Kitchen

Angular stainless steel handles give flat-fronted, minimalist cabinets a little edge.

In Pam and Bill MacGillivray's Limehouse, Ont., farmhouse, a wall of classic white subway tile is a fresh alternative to paint and also doubles as the backsplash. Its light grey grout helps camouflage dirt. Post-renovation, the dishwasher was positioned next to the sink to help cleanup go faster. It's concealed behind panelling and fitted with a handle that matches the cabinets. 

Browse our Kitchen Makeovers photo gallery to see the pre-renovation kitchen. Plus, watch a video tour of the finished space.
