Typical of early 1900s St. Paul homes, this cramped, dark kitchen offered limited functionality and views—all solved by this 5x18-foot addition. This 2017 Remodelers Showcase St. Paul entry remodel includes a large kitchen island with seating, Cambria countertops, custom shaker cabinets, a wine/beverage center, ten new recessed lights, and stunning Marvin windows, which showcase the dramatic backyard landscaping. The design respects the original architecture while enhancing every aspect of the kitchen & dining area—from aesthetics to functionality.
Note the existing kitchen was very dark and cramped. The little window over the sink allowed minimal natural light and a very narrow view of their flowered backyard. The tiny peninsula offered a choke point for traffic and very little storage. The dining area was also inadequate, especially if guests were being entertained. Below is old kitchen layout.
