Bright, Open Concept Kitchen Remodel in Minneapolis
Titus Contracting worked with our clients in the Lake Nokomis area of Minneapolis to turn their small, closed-off kitchen into a beautiful and bright open concept space. The home was originally built in the late 1940s, and our clients wanted to stay true to the historical feel of the house while updating it to fit their needs.
To start, our home remodeling team needed to take down a few walls to open up the space. This included the walls surrounding the old kitchen, as well as the walls that enclosed the front entryway. Once the space was opened up to include the front entryway, living area, dining area and kitchen, we needed to make sure the space flowed perfectly together. In order to do this, we had to match the original oak floors from the living area through the entire dining area and kitchen. Throughout the newly opened space, Titus had to custom create some plaster cove ceilings to match the original cove ceilings featured in the home.
Due to the age of the home, we needed to replace all the old plumbing and electrical. We relocated the sink to sit below the large, brand new window we added to the house. The window was a great addition: flooding the room with plenty of natural light and providing a great view for anyone standing near the sink. Adding the new window meant we also needed to replace some of the cedar shake siding outside. Titus also added low voltage, LED and high efficiency recessed lights, under cabinet lights and pendant lights.
For finishing touches, our clients chose beautiful Cambria quartz countertops, white recessed panel cabinets and stainless steel appliances. The project also included a beautiful eat-at island and classic white subway tile backsplash. They included soft close drawers and a hands-free, motion sensitive faucet as well. The end result of this project was a brightly updated, open space, perfect for hosting and entertaining.
Having an open concept space was important to our clients who love to entertain their family and friends. Our clients’ vision for their remodel was to create a beautiful, new, open space that stayed true to the original feel of the house. Titus Contracting was able to work with our clients to turn this vision into a reality, on time and on budget.
