In this Eagle Lake, Minn., home, the former kitchen was cut off from both the sunroom and the dining room. By demolishing a wall and trimming down a column, locally based designer Jake Schrom of Eagle Lake-based Kitchens, Baths and More transformed the kitchen in the great room the clients wanted.
The homeowners were empty nesters who decided to redesign rather than move. With its outdated appliances and lack of countertop space, this former kitchen had a long way to go.
The light fixture above the dining room table was not meant for a vaulted ceiling. To install the light, the fixture was custom cut and fitted to match the vault line.
Custom floating shelves were installed on the left side of the wall cabinet next to the range hood to break up the cabinetry.
The countertops are granite, which was chosen by the client. Meant to accent the white cabinetry, the granite offers movement in the stone with gray and blue tones.
