Honey Oak Rescue: Before and After

Eric and Nicole have lived in their beautiful 2000-built, two-story home since 2010. For their new space, they envisioned an updated transitional design with family-friendly finishes and features. They were ready and willing to work with the designer to make their budget go even further. An experienced woodworker, Eric even volunteered to do some of the demolition.

before honey oak kitchen was small and inefficient

Before: bottlenecks and traffic jams

Uncomfortably sandwiched between the dining and family rooms, the U-shaped kitchen caused traffic jams whenever the family entertained or used their backyard swimming pool.

After: Seamless open design

Removing a wall created a single multipurpose space. Now, both the cooking and dining areas are spacious and comfortable.

Warm, timeless style with contemporary accents

Mission-style furniture and design first became popular at the turn of the 20th century. Warm wooden cabinets with simple, unadorned fronts are typical of the style. This “less is more” philosophy is a safe bet when it comes to designing your kitchen – simple is always in style. If you prefer something with a little more punch, mix in a few modern or contemporary elements or finishes.

Using two different colors of quartz adds depth to the design.

Located at the center of this open floor plan kitchen, the island has plenty of room for eating, cooking, and socializing. A sculptural shelf provides an understated separation between eating and cooking areas on the island. On the cooking side it also disguises low-profile electrical sockets..

Using two slightly different styles of countertop adds depth to this design, making the darker island stand out from the sandy outside counters and backsplash. Full-height backsplashes are easy to wipe clean and protect walls from food stains and moisture. Bonus: the backsplash almost perfectly matches the counters – creating the seamless look Nicole loves.

The microwave is built right into the central island.

Popular in modern designs, unbroken surfaces with fewer transitions between materials are soothing to the eye. To create a continuous surface, the microwave was built directly into the island. The flat glass cook top is nearly flush with the counter, and the lip of the undermount sink is barely visible. These understated elements all help create a totally seamless look

Pull-out spice rack and organized cabinets in Lakeville, MN

Smart cabinet design makes use of every square inch. A built-in organizer keeps baking pans and cutting boards upright and organized. A narrow pull-out spice rack protects spices from flying oil and keeps the counter clutter-free.

Timeless cabinets with a fiery finish

The Mission-style cabinets stop just short of the ceiling and don’t quite reach the either edge of the room. Leaving some negative space around furniture keeps an oversized piece from overwhelming a room. While this built-in isn’t your average sideboard or credenza the same principle applies.
