Craftsman-style Kitchen Remodel Near Lake Nokomis

Transforming a 70s Kitchen in a 1900s Farmhouse into an Entertainer’s Dream

Sarah and Craig fell in love with a 1900s Minneapolis farmhouse near Lake Nokomis, despite its 70s kitchen with fluorescent lighting. This couple wanted a new kitchen that supports their love for cooking and entertaining. They worked with a White Crane designer to eliminate all of the kitchen’s pain points. The remodeled kitchen design added a chef-grade oven, a custom spice cabinet, updated flooring, and a custom bar space, complete with wine racks, glass-fronted cabinets, and drawers deep enough to hold Craig’s jars of bitters. Moving the sink below a window and widening a tight doorway created better flow and functionality for the space. The oak cabinets and stone backsplash give the remodeled kitchen a craftsman-style vibe. Craig and Sarah’s new kitchen has been getting plenty of use— whether it’s dinner parties with friends or many, many dinners for two.
