From The Archives: Suzanne Dimma’s Kitchen Renovation

When designer Suzanne Dimma and her husband, designer Arriz Hassam of arriz+co, bought their charming downtown Toronto Victorian, it had a lot of potential — and needed a lot of work. Their budget wouldn’t cover a total kitchen renovation, so they made a few immediate and high-impact changes: the cherry upper cabinets were removed, laminate countertops were replaced with industrial stainless steel, and Arriz designed a showstopping island with a waterfall-style Statuario marble counter that would work with their future plans for the rest of the kitchen. 

Eight years later, it was time to take the design up a notch. The appliances were upgraded, the now-tired lower cabinetry was replaced, and everything else was perfectly tailored to their needs. See the renovated kitchen that reflects their mod-meets-trad aesthetic — and that finally fits their life.
