Greens & Chocolate Kitchen Remodel | Edina, MN

the challenge

This space was once three spaces including a dining room, kitchen, and living room. Having smaller spaces all separated by walls made it feel dark and closed off. Our clients were looking to remove the walls to create an open concept and make the space feel more connected, rather than segmented. The goal was to create a more functional layout in the kitchen, including a lot of countertop space and prep space, since our client is a food blogger and loves to be in the kitchen creating and making new recipes. In addition, they were looking for light and white finishes to really brighten up the room, while still having a warm feel with wood and metal accents.

our solution

To create more space and a better layout in the kitchen, we removed the wall separating the kitchen from the dining room. This meant closing off a window in the kitchen and adjusting the dining room window so that the sink could be located underneath it. In the previous space, there was a window by the breakfast table that is now sliding glass patio doors, allowing a lot more light into the space and making it easier to access the backyard as well. Custom cabinetry with light quartz countertops and white subway tile in a herringbone pattern brighten up the kitchen and give it a luxury look as well. Cafe Appliances with gold handles match the gold Delta faucet. Engineered flooring throughout the kitchen and living room give the space a consistent feel as well. Pendants over the island and sink bring lots of light to the space. Now, this space is much more functional, open, and bright for our clients and they love their new kitchen!
