The Douglas Park

Premier Group of Companies Pattern

A highly functional, transitional style kitchen with a touch of traditional elements is what these customers imagined for their Winnipeg home. From the conceptual design phase to the completed build, Premier’s entire team worked together to shape a kitchen renovation plan based on the homeowners’ inspiration.


Lead Designer Charles Kimball devised an enchanting, rustic design using custom millwork created by Rosehill Woodcrafters Designer Taunia Grantham. Bright whites with soft accents throughout evoke a comfortable, inviting atmosphere. The fair colour palette is tasteful but practical, making the space feel larger and more open with wide windows drawing in beams of sunlight to illuminate the space. Contemporary track lighting above brings an uncomplicated, low key modern flair. Charming maple hardwood in Bronze by Seasons Flooring provides pleasing contrast with its warm, friendly brown, and adds natural raw texture with subtle nuances in its wood grain.


Simple, pillow cut shaker style cabinets add a classic, almost country ambiance with their smooth, white painted surfaces. Glazed ceramic subway backsplash tiling lines the walls above the countertops in white, eliciting a comfortable, clean air to the space. Gorgeous Silestone quartz countertops in Mountain Mist provide sensible preparatory surfaces, with a charming curved overhang adding a small seating area right along the counter.


The Cinder coloured Blanco Horizon Silgranit Undermount sink is a timeless addition, as well as the Maytag gas range oven in stark white to complement the kitchen’s design. A custom built 33-inch-tall butcher block cart adds another feature to the kitchen’s functionality as an lower working surface, with the option to be safely stowed under the counter and locking legs to stay in place while in use. With safety standards in mind, the wall behind the refrigerator was also lengthened through coordination with Premier’s Construction Lead Warren Regier.


Using 3D Computer-Aided Modeling to conceptualize the initial design and develop the renovation plan, Premier’s design and construction teams worked together to carefully select materials through Premier’s local Design Centre in the Exchange District. With Premier’s Integrated Project Delivery methods, all team members communicated from start to finish, and these homeowners gained the kitchen they desired with no unplanned timeline extensions or budget overages. Project Manager Shay Stimpson’s expertise guided Premier’s team to make mindful choices and ensure the design reflected the homeowner’s needs for the space to have traditional elements without being a fully traditional style.
