A small kitchen in a Toronto semi gets a major upgrade by designer Olivia Botrie of Dart Studio. Discover how she expanded the space and created a clean country look that speaks to both contemporary and traditional sensibilities.
Olivia added 65 square feet to the narrow room, creating a 250-square-foot kitchen. Custom slab cabinets in a quiet sage color offer smart storage while keeping budget in mind. A rustic wood table brings warmth to the clean, open space, and a banquette provides comfortable seating. One of the homeowners’ asks was to add enough natural light to grow plants, so Olivia chose high transom windows, which work with the modern aesthetic and still allow for privacy.
