South Minneapolis Kitchen Remodel - Part 3
These pictures are bitter sweet. The client, who is also the photographer, took them in the middle of not only the pandemic, but the height of a very scary time in Minneapolis and I didn't get to be there for them.
It was fun to see them arrive in my inbox, but very weird to not stage and be on site to give my client their post project gift, reminisce, and talk final staging.
Even though we had planned on a tiled back splash we ran out of time for construction and the clients had to move back home from their temporary housing at the in-laws. As gracious as family can be, you just want to be in your own home. They decided to have some normalcy and dust free living for while before going for round two.
We went with very modern, brushed nickel pulls that blend in and allows for function without being a main aesthetic.
New windows and door to the basement also complete the remodeled space. A portion of the budget had to go to this and I am so glad it did. When you try to piece meal or skip parts of the project, it shows in the end... and often times ends in regret.
Floor to ceiling cabinetry and roll out trays make for tons of storage and creative use of space to hold all the things the clients want off the counter.
A great view of the open space into the dining room, living room, and new entry.
Clients plan on adding a buffet with mirror or art above, but wanted to live in space to really know how they'd use it and not feel rushed on purchasing something.
I am so glad we went a head and added the front entry to the scope of work. Pro Design Custom Cabinetry worked magic and truly made the space feel a whole style without overdoing it on the stain and having different pulls to have a slight variation.
The luxury vinyl tile floors break up all the wood, provide a waterproof zone, and ground the built-ins perfectly.
Q- Why did you use an Interior Designer? A - We wanted design advise and to keep us organized. It probably helped our marriage to have a professional opinion involved as well. We had a lot of opinions regarding the project and not everything aligned. Q- What was your #inspiration and what is your design style? A - Mid century modern was inspiration and where we started - but we wanted materials to be timeless and it to feel contemporary. Q- What advice would you give concerning #remodeling? A - Remodeling is very exciting but it can be overwhelming. Having Jeanna helped so much in these moments - we knew she was watching deadlines and on top of deliveries and orders. She offered sound advise when we struggled making decisions and was fabulous at combining our ideas and styles. Q- What would you do differently? A - That we would have done this five years ago. Other than that, we are very happy! Q- What was your favorite part? A - Watching it come together. We really had a full transformation - we took out two walls and really re-created our entire common space. It was all very fun and exciting.
Q- What movie title best describes your remodel? A - Mission Impossible meets Field of Dreams
