ABOUT THIS PROJECT

St. Louis Park Kitchen and Bath Remodel This 1911 farmhouse, now surrounded by suburban homes, has stood the test of time. Our clients have lived here for nearly 40 years, raised their family here, and were ready to treat themselves and their classic home to some much-needed updates and refinements. As the clients sat with their Sawhorse designer, one cautioned, “I really like the color green!” An overstuffed but seldom-traversed butler’s pantry was repurposed to add space to the cramped kitchen area. The color request led to the marriage of True Value’s Jericho green, as the base color for cabinetry, with Luna Pearl countertops, beautiful crackled white subway backsplash tile, oil-rubbed bronze hardware and light fixtures, and stainless-steel appliances, all of which complement the green nicely. A movable naturally oiled butcher block prep island allows grandkids to assist in the cooking and baking processes. The former butler’s pantry storage became a beautifully arranged pantry wall, with crackled glass for modest display and bookshelves for a few of the client’s favorites. A main-level master closet expansion enabled the repurposing of a unique hardwood flooring into the kitchen, making the remodel seamless and “green” in more than one sense.

Features Soft-close doors, full-extension drawers, and rollout accessories for ergonomic use. Custom painted and stained cabinetry, natural granite countertops, porcelain tile backsplashes, and maple flooring seamlessly patched with salvaged wood.
