A few months ago, we wrapped up a kitchen and laundry refresh and installed a basement bar in Ham Lake. We shared the designs a while back and today, it’s time to share the before and after! Our clients love the feel of their modern cabin home, but when they moved in earlier this year, they wanted to update the space to make it their own.
The cabinets in this kitchen tied into the rest of the wood in the home and were great quality, so to update the kitchen, we focused more on the backsplash, countertops, and lighting.
Black quartz countertops on the perimeter work well with the countertops on the island that our clients kept. The black gives a modern feel to the space and ties into the lighting and new hardware as well.
A brick-look tile backsplash from Tile Shop in a herringbone pattern adds a statement to the kitchen and brings in the natural look.

This closet in the laundry room was being used for pet storage, but our clients wanted to make it more functional and organized.
By removing the doors, this closet became a lot more accessible and open. Taking out the standard shelf and rod and replacing it with a custom-designed and built system gives it a lot more storage space. The drawers provide space for closed-off storage of leashes and other pet accessories.
The shelving cubbies are perfect for storing baskets for pet supplies, hats and mittens, and food. A new rod for hanging items allows space for clothes to dry after getting washed. Being able to store the dog kennel in the closet keeps it hidden and put away.
Our clients love to entertain, so after they moved into their home, they wanted to add a bar to the finished basement. The space was already roughed-in for a bar. That made it all ready to go to add a sink, faucet, and wine fridge.
With the bar being in this nook, it was already set up for an L-shaped layout with a peninsula. Continuing new flooring throughout the basement allowed the space to feel like one, rather than separate spaces.
Fresh oak luxury vinyl plank flooring throughout the whole basement gives it a consistent feel. Custom-built cabinets painted in North Woods by Behr bring in the cozy and cabin feel.
Light quartz countertops make the space feel bright and open. They also provide lots of space to lay out food and an overhang for friends and family to sit.
Reclaimed wood paneling from Manomin Resawn Timbers on the back of the peninsula and reclaimed wood shelving brings in a natural element to the space.
Black and gold sconce lights above the shelving are on dimmer switches. This allows the space to have a cozy glow at night or when entertaining.
Brick look tile from Cle Tile adds a statement to the back wall and compliments the reclaimed wood paneling as well.
