Kitchen Tour: A Tiny Vancouver Remodel with Storage Aplenty

When it came time for Gillian Stevens to remodel her dated Vancouver kitchen, she did what her training as a photographer had always taught her to do: look for light. In this case, there wasn’t much. “The previous owners had installed a cupboard over the only window,” she explains.

Moving the window placement to this spot “was one of the best decisions we made, and I am so glad that our designer thought of it!” says Gillian.

Custom floating shelves by Lock & Mortice are now where the original window once was.

One of the perks of custom cabinetry is carving out storage space from the tiniest corners.

Ferm Living’s oak and brass Sector Shelf is a perfect fit next to the pantry.

“I really love our pocket doors on the pantry," says Gillian, with a hidden coffee station.

A must-have for Gillian? Carrara marble countertops and backsplash.
