What started out as a Kitchen Remodel in this Northeast Minneapolis home built in 1941, grew into a Kitchen, Den & Bathroom Remodel. Starting with the  Kitchen the homeowners wanted to get rid of the dated tile that covered the walls and part of the ceiling. They also wanted to open up the space as much as possible and add more counter space. By taking out the existing dropped paneled ceiling & removing the partition walls between the Kitchen & Den we were able to really open it up. We then added a peninsula for additional storage & counter space. While the rest of the Kitchen layout stayed pretty much the same every surface was updated. The Kitchen now features wood flooring that tie into the existing wood floors in the home, Bayer Interior Woods custom inset painted cabinetry, Cambria quartz countertops & gorgeous new pendant lighting that adds a bit of sparkle to the space. With the Kitchen opened up so much more on the Den side the homeowners decided that the wall paneling/brick, old electric fireplace & acoustic tile ceiling had to go. While we were at it we also updated all of the windows, lighting & continued the woods floor from the Kitchen. As the project got rolling the wall in the Den that is shared with the Bathroom was opened up & a leak was discovered in the existing plumbing. After some investigation the homeowners decided that they would like to add in remodeling the bathroom. On a short time line we came up with a plan for the Bathroom that made it feel much more open & updated without changing the layout. We removed the wall between the shower & the rest of the bathroom, it was replaced with a clear glass shower door & side panel. The walls & ceilings in the bathroom were also covered in dated tile. That was updated with new tile on the shower walls & half way up the wall behind the toilet & sink. In the shower we did two niches and a really unique patterned tile on the floor. A custom Bayer vanity & toilet topper cabinet were installed, along with all new Kohler fixtures & Cambria countertops.
