South Kitchen

– Minneapolis, MN

PROJECT DETAILS

Remodel Type: Kitchen

Design Style: Contemporary

Clients Favorite Part: Red Backsplash

Before Conditions

  • Kitchen was cut off from the dining room and rest of the house
  • Too many doorways broke up the room
  • Appliances locations didn’t work
  • Cabinet doors falling off

Design Solutions

  • Closed off a window and a doorway to allow for relocation of appliances
  • Opened up wall between kitchen and dining room with a half wall to create a pass through, raised bar counter, and help enlarge the feel of the kitchen
  • Relocated range and glass hood to center of the main wall and created a bold focal point with red glass mosaic tile to the ceiling
  • Clients selected contemporary finishes as a fun juxtaposition against the style of the rest of this updated farmhouse

THE DETAILS

  • Outlets in the cabinets on the dining room side of the bar counter with grommets in the counter to allow them to plug in devices without leaving the doors open
  • Microwave drawer unit gives them more available counter space
  • Tall cabinets in kitchen on sink wall are notched in the back to wrap around the raised bar counter
  • Red Silestone counter top on the bar counter repeats the red glass tile backsplash, while creating a transition from the thick profile white Corian counters in the kitchen

About Colleen


I live in Minneapolis with my landscape architect/urban designer husband, my daughter who believes she’s my design assistant and sous chef, a cuddly black cat, a feisty Siamese kitten and a menagerie of turkeys and other wild animals that visit our backyard for the free food. When I'm not designing you'll often find me cooking up a Paleo feast, playing house with my daughter, or hiding in a corner with my nose in a book.
