Discover what’s cooking in kitchen design

Sunshine Kitchens & Cabinets serves up the latest trends and superb craftsmanship

The kitchen is known as the “heart of the home” for good reason. It’s where we begin each day, entertain friends, make plans for the future and create lasting memories with family.

So when it’s time to plan your kitchen design, you’ll want to work with a professional that offers quality materials, design expertise, and skillful installation.

From working with customers to plan the perfect layout, to coordinating with all trades involved in the job, Sunshine Kitchens & Cabinets takes care of every detail to create a space you’ll truly love. “We spend a lot of time with clients on the design side of kitchens and other spaces, using our design program to create renderings that help with visualization of the space,” says Owner David Stacey. “We have three experienced Designers who will listen to their needs and wants, and help bring it to reality. Function and form are both important. We offer advice on layouts that will lead to the best utilization of their space.”

Custom Cabinetry blends Modern Style with Traditional Elegance

If you are looking to update the style of your kitchen, consider Shaker doors that have a simple design featuring a flat panel surrounded by a raised frame. This style has been and continues to be in demand at Sunshine Kitchen & Cabinets, says Stacey. “We are also seeing a growing demand for a more modern style of kitchen door with a small, one-inch shaker profile. This is a more modern looking door style, without going to a full modern-style slab door.”

When it comes to colour, neutral remains most popular with many clients choosing from the white palette. Comforting shades of blue continue to be in demand, and there is a growing trend to combine more than one colour or shade. For example, an island might feature a darker walnut with rich woodgrains to balance the lighter shade of paint on the perimeter cupboards. Sunshine Kitchens offers a custom paint colour option that allows customers to coordinate with their paint scheme colours.


Other Trends to Watch For

Dreaming of a kitchen that looks stunning and holds up in your busy household? New product offerings at Sunshine Kitchens combine the lasting beauty you want, with the durability you need:

  • Laminate cabinet doors: Many customers opt for laminate cabinet doors. They can be produced to resemble painted surfaces, or realistic wood grains, and are highly durable.
  • Countertops: While Quartz remains the most popular countertop choice, there is growing demand for newer sintered counters by manufacturers like Dekton, which uses sintered particle technology to combine more than twenty natural minerals into a highly heat- and stain-resistant surface.
  • Backsplashes: Full-height backsplashes that match the counters create a dramatic effect and are a practical alternative to ceramic tile.
  • Hardware: Cabinet and drawer handles should fit the hand well and provide a comfortable grip. Sunshine Kitchens offers hardware in a range of on-trend finishes including brushed nickel, brushed brass, and pewter.
  • LED Lighting: Integrated LED lighting can be used to deliver both task and accent lighting, with a clean installation that hides the wires from sight.

Whether you are building or renovating, Sunshine Kitchens & Cabinets specializes in custom cabinetry for homes and cottages. The company has their home just north of Orillia at Cumberland Beach and loves serving and supporting their neighbours. “All of our staff live in this community”, David says. “It is a great place to raise a family and we are proud to support local organizations like OSMH, The Lighthouse Orillia, the Sharing Place and others.”
