This 1901-built bungalow in the Longfellow neighborhood of South Minneapolis was ready for a new functional kitchen. The homeowners love Scandinavian design, so the new space melds the bungalow home with Scandinavian design influences.


A wall was removed between the existing kitchen and old breakfast nook for an expanded kitchen footprint.


Marmoleum modular tile floor was installed in a custom pattern, as well as new windows throughout. New Crystal Cabinetry natural alder cabinets pair nicely with the Cambria quartz countertops in the Torquay design, and the new simple stacked ceramic backsplash.


All new electrical and LED lighting throughout, along with windows on three walls create a wonderfully bright space.


Sleek, stainless steel appliances were installed, including a Bosch induction cooktop.


Storage components were included, like custom cabinet pull-outs, corner cabinet pull-out, spice racks, and floating shelves.


One of our favorite features is the movable island on wheels that can be placed in the center of the room for serving and prep, OR it can pocket next to the southwest window for a cozy eat-in space to enjoy coffee and tea.


Overall, the new space is simple, clean and cheerful. Minimal clean lines and natural materials are great in a Minnesotan home.
