The allure of farmhouse style and sensibilities drove the remodel of this Ham Lake, MN kitchen. The space was closed off from the dining and living room and poorly insulated. An eat-in nook was difficult to slide in and out of, and the cabinetry was dated and drab.
Mechanicals in the space necessitated a clever design. A vent pipe located to the side of the kitchen was boxed in, rather than removed, to keep costs in check. A bookshelf now sits on the opposite side to maintain symmetry.
The eat-in nook was converted into a walk-in pantry flush with open shelves for easy access to baking supplies. The pantry is open to the kitchen to allow natural light to pour in through the pantry window.
A large island with a Hale Navy base, granite top and brushed gold hardware lies in the center of the room under black lantern-style pendants. Classic white subway tiles sit atop warm stained cabinetry and encircle the room. Over the sink, the tile stretches to the shiplap-wrapped ceiling and frames a stunning arched window – a complete showstopper.
Together, these elements create an elevated level of comfort and function for our homeowners in a chic, farmhouse setting!
