2015 Home Tour Participant

The kitchen is this 1996 built home, in an old section of NE Minneapolis, needed a refresh.  Dropped soffits over the upper cabinets restricted storage space and the Homeowners needed an upgrade from the laminate countertops and basic oak cabinetry.  In addition, they wanted to open up a wall between the living room and dining room and add a three-sided fireplace.

The basic layout of the kitchen stayed the same, but Castle added a lot more flair with cherry stained cabinets and a painted island cabinet.  Cambria countertops and a maple butcher block top over the island cabinet accent the unique tile backsplash with a handmade bubble tile detail over the range.  The same custom tile is used as a fireplace surround to tie the entire project together.
