Like many Minneapolis homes from the 1920s, the original kitchen footprint was simply too small to accommodate the needs of its current homeowners. An earlier addition added square footage, but was poorly constructed and was not well integrated into the original space. The new layout included a 24” deep cantilevered addition to the back of the house that increased the footprint and allowed the kitchen to be unified into one continuous room. With the added space and the newly created arched opening to the dining room, enough space was created to include a spacious island for prep-work and family meals. The project included fully custom cabinetry with inset doors, marbled Cambria countertops and a flashy blue BluStar range. Period appropriate lighting fixtures, cabinet hardware and classic subway tile further integrate this stunning kitchen into the surrounding home.
