Case Study:

Rutter Cr, Saskatoon

The homeowners did a complete makeover of their kitchen/dining area. Family get together and entertaining guests in a relaxed and welcoming environment was important. The clients were their own contractor and chose to add additional, task, ambient and area lighting throughout the room which provides plenty of options when entertaining a room full of guests or just relaxing at the table with that morning coffee in hand. The combined wide open spaces cover all the bases for a great working, eating and entertaining room but yet remain cozy and warm for a quiet relaxing drink at the end of the day.

Creating a transition area from working space to entertaining guests, as well as maintaining a welcoming but functional kitchen.


The abundance of natural light from both sides of the room highlight the entire area. The large island provides a central convenient work space. An under counter microwave allows easy and safe access to a cooking appliance that often sits on a counter or is too high to reach. Plenty of large drawer storage makes it easy to access heavier dishes and cook pots. The full extension slides throughout the kitchen, including the pantry shelves and bar area storage, allow for easy access to all stored goods. We were able to create a working kitchen that’s timeless beauty and style matched its functionality.
