Hal French’s home in Oro-Medonte was featured in the most recent issue of OUR HOMES Barrie. His sleek, contemporary kitchen really caught our eye and made for a great cover shot!
Hal enlisted Designers Plus Kitchens and Bath Studio, who he had partnered successfully with on previous home transformations. Established in Barrie by husband-and-wife team Jim and Elke Bradford 35 years ago, the full-service firm oversees renovations of any size – usually starting with a kitchen or bath. “It was nice to be able to use him on such a big scale, because I liked their work and their style,” says Hal.
The kitchen boasts two areas – the cooking area and an eat-at bar with lots of storage. The large side-by-side refrigerator/freezer is one of Hal’s favourite features and he shopped around for a while before finding the right fit.
The gorgeous china set on the breakfast bar is Countrywide by Coalport; Hal inherited a cupboard full and loves using it when entertaining guests.
