Inspiration for a timeless kitchen remodel in Minneapolis with raised-panel cabinets, blue cabinets and quartz countertops

Lake of the Isles Kitchen

Traditional Kitchen, Minneapolis

This kitchen is part of a major renovation to a historic home built in 1899. A classic color palette of navy blue, camel and off-white makes a bold statement but does not overwhelm the space. The large windows provide abundant natural light which is so welcome in Minnesota's long grey winters. The traditional style of the cabinets ground the kitchen into the proper personality of the home. The personality of the homeowner is expressed through the unusual mix of materials, colors and textures. Using stripes on the various planes on the floor and walls help to define the areas individual personality. Many green products were used in the kitchen including the cork floor, low VOC paint, LED lighting, Cambria quartz counter tops, locally made navy tile. Additionally, the top of the table in the breakfast nook is manufactured from trees that have fallen in the Twin Cities due to storms, age or that have been removed by builders. The base is made by a talented local artist. The industrial style light fixture above the island is custom made.
