Tangletown Kitchen

For this Minneapolis family, space had become a real challenge. As a family of four with two active daughters and two large dogs, nothing seemed quite large enough. The existing kitchen was too small, poorly laid out, and functioned as the primary passage to their back yard. On the main level, there was simply not enough storage space for the family’s essential items—coats, gear, and sports equipment. The home also lacked any type of bathroom on the main level. Lastly, the existing overused bathroom on the upper level was in desperate need of a full renovation.

Edit designed a 16’ x 9’ addition to the side of the home to accommodate a spacious new entry and mudroom as well as a charming powder room. The back of the kitchen was bumped-out to create a significant increase in the overall area of the kitchen. This bump-out allowed for the design of a fully functional kitchen with a large opening to the original dining room as well as large windows overlooking the back yard. The finished renovation includes a spacious kitchen with custom cabinetry, hardwood floors, a new pantry, and Cambria countertops. The new mudroom includes two large closets and a well appointed powder room with playful wallpaper and elegant brass and bronze finishes. The second floor bathroom was redesigned and remodeled to include a new vanity, a large linen closet and a tiled shower and bathing area. Ultimately the renovation improved the connection of the house to the back yard for outdoor gatherings, and integrated a much improved traffic pattern in and out of the kitchen through the new mudroom.
