The homeowners of this Mendota Heights, Minnesota home, were dreaming of a spacious, functional kitchen. There was just one problem; their current layout featured an outdated and narrow galley with a pass-through. As busy professionals raising a family, the homeowners wanted to add an island large enough to fit the whole family around. Working with our designer, Naomi, they were able to make their dreams a reality.

Removing a wall from the galley kitchen opened up space, making room for a gorgeous island cabinet with plenty of seating. The dark stained island and lower coffee bar cabinets contrast beautifully with the perimeter’s white cabinets. A mix of open shelving and glass cabinet doors with traditional cabinets creates depth and adds visual interest to the overall design. The homeowners and Naomi did a fantastic job making selections for this kitchen—every element works in perfect harmony.

We love the final look of this space! The two-tone cabinetry combined with the clean, white subway tile and quartz countertops gives this newly remodeled kitchen a sophisticated feel. With an oversized island anchoring the kitchen, the homeowners have plenty of space for gathering as a family. Not only that, but the creative cabinet storage and built-in desk make this kitchen all the more functional!
