Midcentury Roots Kitchen Remodel

Hopkins, MN  |  2023

Our clients, a husband and wife who loved to cook,

sought to transform their dated kitchen into a home chef’s dream while opening up and modernizing the space.

 A non-traditional floorplan involving tricky corners and numerous transitions with other spaces in the home required us to think creatively. Ultimately, the beauty of this project lies partially in its unique layout.

Lower cabinets finished in Farrow & Ball Stiffkey Blue and Sherwin Williams Snowbound White on the upper cabinets topped with Alabaster White quartz countertops intermix playfully. Features such as a new Wolf range, a prep sink and ample counterspace pay homage to our home chefs’ desires while refinished oak floors blend the new and existing spaces. Meanwhile, tiny details give nod to the home’s midcentury origins, including Fleischman glass cabinet doors, lightly crackled elongated hex tile backsplash, aged brass and matte blue lighting from Rejuvenation, and hardware from Forge Hardware’s Paris cabinet collection in a champagne bronze finish. 

The nearby area is redesigned to include a desk area and coat storage, serving as the perfect catch-all space for entry from the garage while helping gracefully meld the doorways and kitchen.

Altogether, the remodeled space feels both updated and harmonious with the home’s Midcentury roots, a beautiful space tailored to delight our home chefs!
