Practical-Yet-Glam Family Kitchen

Design a custom island to fit a space perfectly.

Reena Sotropa of Calgary-based interior design firm Corea Sotropa embarked on her own hands-on kitchen renovation, transforming her dated 1950s kitchen into a functional family space. The stainless-steel range hood, mosaic-tiled backsplash and chandelier add sparkle. The island was designed specifically to suit the room's modest dimensions and to keep things open visually. While small, it comes in handy during food prep.
