Farmhouse-Inspired Design

New layout flows through the open format kitchen

Darin and Jenny purchased their 1963-built rambler in 2005. Located on a quiet lake in Lakeville, they love the scenic views and had remodeled several areas of their home before but were ready to remodel their kitchen, living, and dining room into a versatile, open floorplan.

rambler floorplan in lakeville mn before

Before: Dated design and divided layout

The original space plan kept each area separate, and there was no connection between the living room and the kitchen, much less a clear view of the lake. The inefficient layout meant that it was finally time to create a New Space for this family of four.

After: Unified floor plan with Farmhouse-inspired details

Redesigned to take in the lakeside views and make entertaining a breeze, this open floor plan has a farmhouse-inspired design sure to be the backdrop for many happy memories to come. The new open kitchen joins together a grand dining room and intimate family nook. Matching wood floors tie the whole renovation together, and a new mudroom off the kitchen is the perfect transitional space between the indoors and the Minnesota elements.

The star of this renovated rambler is the farmhouse-inspired kitchen. Joining the kitchen and family nook is a large island with seating for five. A place to work, eat, cook, and visit, the kitchen island is the center and the heart of this home.

In addition to an expansive counter top, the island has plenty of storage and also hides the microwave. Of course, design isn’t only about function; built with elegant turned legs and beadboard, this kitchen island has a beautiful form as well.

The classic combination of bright white and warm wood will always be in style, no matter what the next kitchen trend is. A variety of neutral tones and a mixture of textures add depth and character to this design. Dark gray perimeter countertops complement the granite island and provide plenty of workspace. An upper course of white cabinets with lighting underneath keep this kitchen cheerful and welcoming.

The tile in the niche mirrors the gray and white tones of the backsplash and countertops. A clever visual design, this feature also functions as the perfect place to keep salt, pepper, oil, and vinegar close at hand.

This intimate family nook took the place of the old dining room. By removing a wall, this design lets more natural light into the kitchen, highlights the view, and enables the family to spend more time together.

Additional built-in cabinetry will keep the look of this home unified. Bridging the space between the kitchen and the family room, this storage wall features pantry cabinets, bar and wine storage, an entertainment center, and a lit display cabinet.

Mudroom is a Minnesotan dream

When you live in Minnesota you acquire plenty of outerwear. Storage is always a challenge – especially with kids! Plenty of drawers, cubbies, and hooks mean that every mitten, hat, and coat has a home. An extra deep bench ensures that even when there are coats hanging there is space to sit.

The organic inspired color scheme in this modest mudroom all relate back to the beautiful new kitchen in this charming Lakeville rambler.
