St Paul Contemporary Kitchen Remodel

Kitchen space plan and layout by: Pam Erler, NKBA-Certified Designer. Final Cabinetry Design and Selections by: Katie Jaydan, ASID. This 1921 bungalow in the como neighborhood of St. Paul, was in need of a kitchen update. The home had previous design work done by Castle and the family decided to finish their kitchen as well. The family wanted the kitchen to feel like one with the rest of the home. They were in need of better working space, more lighting, and wanted an over all open feel. The new configuration opened the kitchen into the dining room and was designed to match the rest of the home. The space was furnished with new dark Alder cabinets, Laminate countertops, stainless steel appliances, Marmoleum floors, and accented with American Olean glass and stone blended backsplash. The updated space creates a very bright and contemporary atmosphere for the family to enjoy.

Hi jets0904 - looks like we pulled the wrong file to update you on the countertops. We sincerely apologize for the mix up. The countertops are actually Wilsonart Laminate, in Tubled Roca with a self-edge.

Kevin - as far as the dining room table goes, that is actually an antique the homeowners previously owned.

I'm attracted to this layout, I like that there are no cabinets, but simple shelves instead. I like the openness between the kitchen and the dinning room, I would like for there to be bar seating looking into the kitchen instead of cabinets.
