KITCHEN OF LIGHT
We transformed a classic 1910’s home in Minneapolis via this creative remodeling. Upper cabinets are replaced by a wall of windows, resulting in a kitchen, dining room and family room all connect to each other as one open light-filled space. Pantry cabinets hide in the door jambs, and a powder room and mail/key drop tuck cleverly into in-between spaces. The details through the project pay homage to the original style of the home, while accommodating modern living.
