We were recently featured by Redfin with some advice for elevating your kitchen cabinets. As the largest feature in most kitchens, cabinetry is always one of our top considerations!
Here was our top tip for homeowners:
To upgrade your kitchen cabinets, consider requesting all visible end panels match the finish on your door fronts – these are called gable ends. Often millworkers will have a standard flat profile for end panels. The additional cost is worth the added visual interest it brings to the space.
Our Kitsilano Residence is a great example of these gable end panels in a modern, eclectic home. For this family, the kitchen, dining and gardens were key gathering spaces in their home. We’ve designed these spaces with this in mind, and added details to keep them visually tethered. With gable end panels, and with storage wrapping around the corners of the kitchen, these cabinets maximized space while creating a soft transition between rooms.

In a bid to help fill the "missing middle" housing gap, the City of Vancouver has announced a new housing initiative, the Making HOME program. Design Build firms offer the breadth of service necessary to deliver this type of project from start to finish. A six dwelling property won't suffice for Vancouverites unless it is thoughtfully crafted, and meaningful to its inhabitants.
