Spacious White Kitchen
Untouched cedar ceiling beams offer contrast.
More than 60 gallons of white primer and paint later, Stacy Begg and her siblings transformed their dreary Lake Simcoe cottage into a bright and cheerful family retreat. New engineered hardwood oak floors won't shrink and expand with fluctuations in temperature — a perfect material for cottages. They're finished in a semi-gloss that reflects light and brightens the room. Sage-green ceramic tiles and a parade of sentimental champagne bottles (dusted off and redisplayed) add hits of subtle colour.
