A kitchen that only a grandmother could love

By: Teigan Reamsbottom

I hate to admit, but my grandmother may have the tackiest kitchen you've ever seen: complete with more decorative plates on display than an episode of "Antiques Roadshow", paintings of European castles hung prominently and brightly-coloured, hand crocheted pot holders adorning the countertop. Her glamorous kitchen also features blue periwinkle wallpaper on the walls (and inside the cupboards), with matching decorative seat cushions on the chairs at what looks like Liberace's dining room table (hidden beneath a full table-sized doily). I would describe the style of her kitchen as "Coronation Street" meets "The Lawrence Welk Show" with a bit of "Dynasty" thrown in for good measure. If there's one decorating tip she should learn, it would be this: less is more. Much like a Jackie Collins novel, my grandmother doesn't know when to stop with the details.

Here at Cedarglen Homes, we understand that nobody should have to suffer with a kitchen such as this, no matter how charming it might be. Create new memories in a sleek, modern kitchen with those extra luxuries that your grandmother's kitchen can't compete with! Check out two of our favourites, both from The Aspen model.


The Aspen in New Brighton features paint-grade maple cabinets with light valence crown moulding and granite. With a lowered eating bar walk-through pantry, hardwood flooring and built-in wine cabinet, this is a perfect family kitchen boasting a great deal of counter and storage space. The large layout of the kitchen also proves a great space to entertain family and friends. Included in all Cedarglen kitchens are a stainless steel appliance package and full-height tile backsplash in the kitchen. Located at 716 New Brighton Drive SE, this kitchen is worth your time in viewing.


The welcoming colours of the Velvet Truffle stained maple cabinets create a warm and comfortable atmosphere in the sleek, modern kitchen of The Aspen in Auburn Bay at 31 Auburn Glen Way SE.
