This Minneapolis home built in the 1920s was ready for a kitchen remodel. The homeowners had completed a previous addition off the side of the kitchen but still had original kitchen in place. Now seeking to expand the kitchen into the addition space, they contacted Castle for their 2nd phase of remodeling. The customers came to Castle looking to maximize function and to bring the Arts and Crafts style of the home into the new kitchen.
By enlarging the single doorway between the kitchen and dining, natural light was able to filter in between the spaces creating an open feel. Castle matched the new casing to the existing millwork in the home. To maximize budget, the clients did a lot of the demo themselves and painted the walls at the end. Custom Birch flush inset cabinets were made and stain matched to existing millwork in the kitchen. Custom items included: pull out drawers, spice rack, adjustable shelving and roll-out shelves in the pantry and a custom radiator cover. New Red Oak hardwood floors were installed in both the dining and kitchen to add historic charm. Neutral Quartz countertops and custom handmade tile by Mercury Mosaics was installed for the backsplash to finish the space.
