Elegant Gourmet Kitchen

When the family of five moved into this lakeside home on Lake Minnetonka, a gourmet kitchen was in order. Their interior designer, Brandi Hagen of Eminent Interior Design transformed the all –white room by melding a traditional tile backsplash, beautifully light-stained maple floors, a bead-board ceiling with a contemporary black and white color scheme. The original white upper cabinets remain light and airy in contrast to the elegant, black lower cabinets and appliances. The tile backsplash and center-island granite features incorporate all colors to unify the interior designed space.

I love the faucet - who makes it? - Love the single "arch" type faucets, but many are so large for my size kitchen. This one is more moderate in scale with beautiful lines.

Hello! This is from a project from several years ago and my files have been archived. However, I believe it is the LadyLux Cafe faucet from Grohe.
Good Luck!

Thank you - I am planning to purchase a new faucet and will definitely look at Grohe. Note I really love everything about the kitchen you did!

Hello. This particular light fixture is not adjustable in height. It is 32"h and the ceiling height is 8'. The counter of the island is likely at 30"h. so the height off the counter is 34".
Thank you.

Island Counter - How long is the island counter and what's the name of the granite?

Eminent Interior Design
Hello. Our spec for the granite is Aran Cream, however it is known by other names as well. There are several granites that are similar. It is best to view slabs at the granite supply showroom. There can be movement, veining, sparkles that are not visible until you see the slab or remnant up close and personal with the finishes of your home. The island length is 9' 0". Thank you for your question.

Hello. The valance was custom made at my local workroom with fabric and trimmings that I resourced. You may find something similar at a local fabric store that feature designer fabrics. Thank you for your question!

Hello and thank you for your question. The finish on the barstools is a black finish. The seats are in a pearlized vinyl that is since discontinued. Good Luck!

Hello. The ceiling height for this room is 8' 0". The beadboard detail on the ceiling adds interest but doesn't make the ceiling feel lower in the process. Thank you for your question!

Hello,
This backsplash is one of my favorites! It is a mosaic blend of Crema Marfil, Thassos and China black stone material. It is from a company called Artistic Tile. They have "standard designs" but they will also custom create a mosaic. Thank you for your question!

What is the height of the base cabinets with the sink? - The cabinets with the sink look like they are taller than the cabinets wih the cooktop. Washing dishes gives me lower back pain, but I think the taller cabinets and sink would help! Would love to know the height of these!

Stained Maple Floors look terrific! - Were these floors finished in the home or were they pre-finished? Would you be so kind to share the name of the stain? The stain looks so even which is difficult with Maple.
