Dream Home Remodel Sneak Peeks

Over this month we have been giving you sneak peeks into a dream home remodel for a client who had a had a wish list of  a master ensuite on the upper level and on the main level an updated kitchen with a powder room.  The before and after floor plans for the upper level can be found here and the main level here.

Charming Kitchen Remodel

Our St. Paul Dream Home remodeling tour continues today with a sneak peek at the custom solutions LiLu designed for our client’s kitchen remodel. We added a powder room to the main floor of our client’s Dream Home and in doing so the original charming kitchen became even more charming (designer speak for smaller!). So we had to get extra creative in designing this kitchen to make sure it had big personality and lots of storage despite it’s smaller footprint.  The new floor plan is shown below.

Inspiration and Creative Thinking

Our inspiration began with a trip back in time to reference the era of when the house was built. The ice box, complete with exposed hinges and lots of fun cabinet doors. With this in mind, we designed a floor to ceiling wall of shallow pantry storage and open shelves to capture every inch of usable space. The nook by the door is a little deeper and we were able to design a pull-out pantry unit for larger items. With this wall serving as our focal point, we decided to paint it a bold blue to really anchor the space.  The remaining kitchen cabinetry was thoughtfully designed to include space for trays and cookie sheets, pot and pan drawers, and pull-out recycle and trash bins. Now our client’s charming kitchen fits in perfectly with the neighborhood and more importantly fits our client perfectly and is everything she dreamed of.
