Are you dreaming of a new kitchen and wondering how much you’ll need to invest? We breakdown the costs for two kitchen remodels and what factors drive those costs.
St. Louis Park Kitchen & Primary Suite Addition
A remodel is underway. Take a look inside.
Follow along as we build a shed dormer addition along the upper level of this St. Paul Cape Cod.
Behind The Design
Our clients, a young family, love their neighborhood but wanted to update their home and expand their living space.
- Tight closed-off kitchen separated from the dining area
- No mudroom or place to store shoes
- The house only has 2 bedrooms & 1 bathroom leaving no office or guest room space
The new addition will solve these issues by:
- Creating a new larger, open-concept kitchen and dining area
- Adding a mudroom
- Adding a powder bathroom to the main floor
- Adding a third bedroom and another bath upstairs, creating a new primary suite
The homeowners wanted the space created by the new addition to flow seamlessly into the original house. The addition design solves the functionality issues created by a too-small house and aesthetically ties together the home’s main floor. On the exterior, the addition design ties into the existing roof lines and considers the lot size.
Primary Bedroom & Bath Design
Upstairs, the addition adds a bedroom and a bathroom, creating a new primary suite for our clients and the opportunity for an existing bedroom to become an office or guest space. The new primary bedroom will have windows overlooking the park across the street, allowing for lots of natural light.
The new bathroom will have a generous walk-in shower with walls in white subway tile, a black hexagon mosaic shower floor, and matte black plumbing fixtures. A quartz-topped custom walnut vanity with gold pulls and a brass sconce adds warmth to the bathroom palette.
