As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, the primary challenge for Kevin & Celine's family home was maintaining a balance between the heritage of the house and incorporating a modern design. Designer Jillian Harris bridged the border between modern and historical by choosing a modern version of tile for the backsplash. The originally planned grey slate tiles were set aside with the discovery of the original fir floor boards. A large peninsula created as a gathering place for the family. A deep pantry to the right of the fridge was designed by having to close off a small corridor that was no longer to code.
The removal of the wall that separates the kitchen and the living room creates a more open space for dinners and entertaining. The new white kitchen has new non-slip tiles (for the aging dogs), new cabinets, appliances, and lighting, as well as in-floor heating (for the dogs). The kitchen is also surrounded by built in pocket dog doors which allows the homeowners to contain the dogs in a comfortable environment while they are away.
