Transitional Appeal MIKE BROWN Paragon Kitchens, Guelph, Ontario, Canada Resale was top of mind for the design of this kitchen, as it was part of a new-build in an executive town home located in Guelph, Ontario. Mike Brown of Paragon Kitchens was tasked with creating a warm, transitional space that would appeal to a wide audience. While Brown was given a blank slate with which to create the 300-sq.-ft. kitchen, there was a specified space in the layout for its placement, and set parameters – such as the patio door and HVAC locations – had to be dealt with. The HVAC location was hidden behind the upper cabinetry and a triple-stacked beveled crown moulding application, all by Miralis Fine Custom Cabinetry in Nimbus gray. The upper cabinets included glass fronts and open shelving to be used for display. The overall greige perimeter cabinets lend a classic yet modern appeal to the space, and are complemented with hard- ware from Berenson in a Graphite finish. Opposite the window wall is the main appliance area, which includes a Bosch refrigerator and wall ovens, as well as a Panasonic built-in microwave. Along the back wall, a 36" Bosch gas cooktop is set into a Cambria quartz countertop in Carrick, with a Faber Tratto range hood above. The backsplash provides a bright white contrast to the grays along the wall, finished in Ona Blanco tile from Porcelanosa. A Marvel 24" bar refrigerator sits at the end of the run of cabinetry. Miralis also provided the island cabinetry – a solid maple with Portabello stain for a warmer complement to the perimeter. A wa- terfall quartz countertop in Brittanicca from Cambria adds a mod- ern element, with stools tucked underneath on one side. A Blanco Precis Cascade sink is paired with Trinsic Brushed Nickel faucet from Delta Faucet, with a Bosch dishwasher aiding in clean up. Photo: Jason Hartog BRONZE August 2019 • 51
