On a sunny afternoon, it’s hard to imagine that this midtown Toronto kitchen was once cold and uninviting. “The owner had to wear her winter coat inside on frigid days,” says designer Kate Zeidler. Properly insulating the space was a top priority, followed closely by adding a plush seating area — steps from the new, roomy walnut-clad island — and creating an outdoor family room on the adjacent covered back deck. “We wanted the space to be clean and updated with an enduring aesthetic,” says Kate, who worked closely with William Dewson Architects on the project. “The improvements make the space much more livable while respecting what was beautiful about the home to begin with.”
