CLC kitchen make-over transforms dull & cramped into modern & oh-so-beautiful

Charles Lantz Cabinetry Feature Project July '12

"In CLC we found the dream team!" - Halifax homeowner

beautiful designer kitchen

"Charles and his crew were the perfect match for our renovation project," says Mary Lou. "Working with Realm Design, we had developed the kitchen layout and the plans for the built-ins for our home."

"The next step was to find a kitchen company who would care about details as much as we did.
In CLC we found the dream team."

"The design and build benefited from Charles' knowledge, kitchen expertise and superb craftsmenship.
It was a pleasure to work with builders and installers who took such pride in the work. Responsive and organized, Charles flawlessly managed the process from beginning to end and made us feel like members of the CLC family. Thank you for your tremendous work!"

Mary Lou and Lauchie enjoy cooking together. In their new spacious kitchen, they each have a sink.
One is in the solid quartzite countertop, photo left and the other is in the island, photo, right. The couple chose quartzite as it looks like marble, but has the longevity of granite.

there's plenty of hidden storage space.

Charles Lantz comments:

"When I was asked to do this project, the owners and designers had much of my work already acheived. The design was just right for this home. It is great when the owners do their homework and relay their ideas into the finished results. I so enjoyed working with such a great couple - my hope is they will have many good times in their wonderful space. Many thanks to Mary Lou and Lauchie, for the opportunity to do your project!"
