Kitchen + Mudroom Refresh | Walker, MN

the challenge

Our clients love their cabin in northern Minnesota and rent it out to vacationers. Now that they’re moving to the cabin full time, they wanted to give this space a refresh and make it their own. To make the most use of the space, they were looking for a custom island that could host the microwave, sink, dishwasher, and other pull-outs and storage. In addition, they wanted a hutch that could be their coffee bar to host their coffee maker and mugs. For the mudroom, a storage cubby system above the washer and dryer with a rod for hanging clothes keeps the space organized and neat.

our solution

Updated countertops and a new backsplash brighten up the space. Moving the microwave to the island allows for a custom wood hood over the range. The coffee hutch allows guests to get their coffee and have a space for the coffee maker. An island with lots of storage and a sink looking out into the living room makes the layout much more functional. Continuing the countertops and backsplash from the kitchen into the mudroom give the space a consistent look and feel.
