Create a Classic Kitchen

Create a Classic Kitchen

5 Elements + Wall Colour


Creating a kitchen from scratch is a large, exciting and expensive project.

Ideally you should only have to do it once. Mistakes can be costly and usually involve bad colour choices.Therefore, I recommend simple and classic combinations to give your kitchen a beautiful and timeless look that YOU will love for years to come and that any buyer would love to inherit.

This is colour advice from Maria via photos and email.


This solution is for you if:

You are planning a new kitchen and you are overwhelmed with the endless options and possible combinations of finishes. You have tile and counter top samples propped everywhere in the hopes that a magical combination will jump out and say ‘pick me’. In this package we can provide you with a combination of five finishes that will work seamlessly together to create a kitchen that will be timeless and beautiful.

Unless you were moving into a brand new house, have you EVER loved the backsplash in a dated home that you have purchased? Chances are high that your answer is NO. How about a “creative” backsplash and counter top combo? Still NO I’ll bet.

These can include any five of the following colour selections:
  • Cabinet Colour
  • Counter Top Selection
  • Backsplash Selection
  • Hardware Selection
  • Wall Colour
  • Flooring
  • Appliance Colour
  • Lighting

The perfect wall colour is always included.

In order to help us get you your solution faster, we ask that you include photos of samples you are considering (you will receive detailed instructions for photographing them properly). We are likely to send you out to source more options within certain parameters and have you photograph those in the context of the other elements too. Consulting online involves some leg work, but having professional advice for finishes that are pricey and relatively permanent makes it worth it!

As soon as you’ve purchased your solution, you will receive a form to fill out as well as an information sheet on how we need photos taken so we can accurately give you the right advice.

Your Colour Solution will arrive within 12-15 business days.

One final note:

When you get colour advice from the Maria Killam team, we are not guessing. We will not be asking you questions like “What do you think?” Unless you really do have two choices where both will work equally as well and still give you the classic and timeless look you want for your home. What we are doing is using our experience and expertise to find you the perfect colour solution that will work in your specific design situation.

If you need the footprint of your kitchen redesigned you need an interior designer. We specialize in specifying the right colours and/or neutrals for your finishes but we do not manage design details and layout. If you need drawings and layouts you will have to hire a designer. However, if you already have the look and feel and the finishes selected for your kitchen, you will only need drawings and that will cost less.

You have paid for our time so if for some reason you move or something changes before you can implement our recommendations there will be no refund. We want you to be happy, so if there is an issue other than personal preference we ask that you share photos of your colour testing and any objections or concerns you might have and give us the opportunity to tweak our selections before you reject them outright.

Please note, we will not provide a refund unless we have had the chance to make adjustments to our initial recommendations.

Refunds for UNUSED consultations processed after 60 days are subject to an administrative fee of 5% of the total purchase price.
