Kenwood Contemporary

Minneapolis, MN

Built in 1986, this 3-level townhome needed a fresh update that accommodated the homeowner’s lifestyle better.

The home features an open staircase that leads to a vaulted top level that houses the kitchen & living space. The kitchen was surrounded by non-structural walls that closed off the otherwise open atmosphere of the rest of the house. Early on, it was decided between the homeowner & designer Kaitlyn Stokes to remove the walls and make the kitchen & living space one continuous space. The previous kitchen had a range which was replaced with wall ovens & a cooktop in the island.

New oak flooring was laced in to the existing & refinished to seamlessly blend the new kitchen with the living space.

The homeowner mentioned a neck injury that caused pain when he looked down too far, so the island was raised a few inches as this would be the main prep area. New oak flooring was laced in to the existing & refinished to seamlessly blend the new kitchen with the living space. New recessed lighting was added to illuminate the space better & pendants were added above the dining table to add a focal point.

A combination of stained Red Oak & matte white cabinets from Crystal Cabinet Works paired with Cambria Swanbridge added a fresh & contemporary vibe while the glass tile backsplash from Virginia Tile added a pop of color. This kitchen is now a space that reflects the homeowner’s bright personality & functions for their lifestyle.
