Black Lake Kitchen and Main Level

the challenge

The first thing we noticed and loved was how open the kitchen was already. No walls needed to come down. What we did instead was adjusted and resized the island to be able to maximize the view of the lake.

The kitchen and living room layout remained the same. We just needed to update cosmetics throughout.

our solution

We were able to stick with our original plan of keeping the kitchen footprint the same. Our favorite part when we toured the home was that it already had an open concept feel with the kitchen and living room and it all overlooked gorgeous Lake Minnetonka.

The only part we reconfigured was the cabinetry and squaring off the island in order to make it as big as possible. We debated for a long time on moving the range but we kept it the same, remaining within the island. And after hanging out in here once the remodel was complete we were sure glad we did! Being able to cook with views of the water was ideal. And we made the island large enough so there were no worries if someone was sitting on the other side of being burned.
