Our clients came to us wanting to take out the wall between the kitchen and the dining room and create a new larger kitchen in their Lakeville MN home.
With a new, more open layout, we made subtle shifts to improve the space’s flow. Keeping the sink in the same location, we moved the stove to the same wall as the sink. In addition, we moved the fridge to the far wall, and added an oven/micro combination and a large pantry. We even had some extra room to create a desk space. One of our favorite features about this kitchen is the DOUBLE island! The island closest to the sink functions as a working island, and the other is for entertaining with seating for guests.
In terms of design, what really shines here is the combination of color that creates a beautiful subtle elegance. The warm gray color of the cabinets is paired with the brown stained cabinets on the island. Darker honed granite countertops featured on the perimeter cabinets complement a light gray quartz countertop for the islands. The slightly marbled backsplash helps to tie everything in and provides richness to the whole kitchen. Finally, matte black hardware and the matte black sink light add the perfect little pops for a finishing touch that is simply divine!
