2019 Spring Remodelers Showcase Home
If the cook ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy. The cramped design and dated condition of this south Minneapolis story and a half frustrated the gourmet cook in this family of four, who wanted more space to entertain. We removed a wall and designed a 5-foot addition off the back for the expanded dining/living space.
To bring this dark cramped, poorly designed kitchen into the 21st century without destroying its charm, we added new windows, more lighting, custom flat-panel walnut cabinets, quartz countertops with a companion geometric backsplash tile and new appliances. Keeping the cove ceilings and “toothing” in matching hardwood floors paid homage to the aesthetics of the previous era. The added mudroom off the kitchen completes the functional design. Now everyone is happy!
