This St. Paul kitchen, family room and bathroom were re-created providing beautiful, comfortable, and innovative new spaces. A tiny half bathroom sat between the original 1914 cramped kitchen and a 1980’s addition. The old spaces were cramped, poorly heated, and inefficient. The added family room had been under-used and did not blend well with the rest of the house.
The bathroom was moved to a different corner of the family room, opening the space and passage into the kitchen.
Creative use of recessed cabinets, a curved front vanity, and a wall hung toilet provide practical and ample space for both mobility and storage in the new cozy powder room.
The traditional 1914 feel of the home is maintained with a farm sink, hard wood floors, original style trim work, flush inset cabinets with brackets, painted wood paneled appliances, and custom in-swinging casement windows.
