Split-Entry Simplicity

New Millennium split-entry home gets a brilliant update

Joe and Judy built their split-entry home in 2000. The design featured quite a bit of golden-oak (the 2000s' cousin to the dreaded honey-oak), and after 13 years they were ready to refresh their kitchen and family room with an authentic character that wouldn't seem dated in 20 years. Besides the aesthetic upgrade, the couple hoped to gain a double oven, new countertops, and more hardwood floors.

Refreshing update to classic kitchen and family room in Lakeville, MN

A peaked ceiling and large window over the sink creates a spacious and energetic space – and ideal focal point of family life. This lightness is balanced and complimented by elemental natural wood tones and stone textures.

kitchen remodel mixes classic elements and modern accents

There is no hard and fast rule that everything in a design must match in order to feel cohesive.

A Cobble Brown accent wall separates the family room from the kitchen. This warm neutral hue creates a grounded and calming atmosphere to enjoy the fire, a good book, or favorite tv shows.

This kitchen features a variety of Starmark cabinet styles and drawer fronts: open, recessed panel, and 5-piece raised panel doors, as well as slab-style drawers all make an appearance. Some cabinets are painted white and reflect light back into the room, while others let the natural cherry grain show through. With stainless steel appliances, this kitchen has a simple, yet eclectic, feel that will never feel dated.

The textural backsplash combined with smooth, slab-style drawers and stainless steel appliances will keep this subtle design looking current.

Travertine subway tiles take a slightly rustic material and shape it into a quintessentially modern form, perfectly blending two timeless styles to create this extra-long backsplash. Color coordinated with the Cambria engineered quartz countertops, a glass mosiac stripe draws the eye around the horseshoe kitchen.

Waste no space!

This busy family of four has dedicated the space to the left of the fridge as a message center, complete with a wall file and bulletin board. Designating a centralized place to leave notes, collect and sort mail, and post calendars keeps countertops clear of clutter.

Rustic meets modern

A custom-built mantle has open shelves for displaying collectables as well as closed cabinets for hiding away the DVD player and cable box. The ribbon fireplace is framed by dry stacked stones with copper and steely gray hues, merging contemporary and rustic elements. Refinished oak flooring unifies the kitchen and family room.

This fully featured mudroom is a Minnesotan dream. The built-in dresser and cubbies give every boot, mitten, hat and jacket its own home. In mucky weather, the built-in bench provides a seat for comfortable de-booting. A charming chalkboard is a billboard for greetings, important messages, or creative expression.
