Small Kitchen Remodel in Afton, MN

Mid Century Modern Retro Style with all the Modern Technology

Homeowners of this beautiful small town property in Afton, Minnesota were envisioning bringing a mid-century modern retro design style to their kitchen. When considering a small kitchen remodel around the Twin Cities, it’s not uncommon to think about adding a few retro touches with the added benefit of modern amenities which can change the ambiance.

The current kitchen was too small and lacked ample storage space. Appliances were outdated and more natural light was needed. With two kids the parents really wanted a mudroom and laundry on the main level. The client was looking for design elements that would change the rustic style of their home to an organic style with a pop of color bringing a playful personality and colorful feel to the kitchen.

Ispiri was able to offer the client solutions to create a warm inviting space where family and visitors will always feel welcome to join you for a cup of coffee or a home-cooked meal. The newly remodeled kitchen has a large center Verde green island for prepping meals and space for seating. Ispiri added a small addition in order to enlarge the kitchen allowing more room to entertain family and friends. We took the large family room and divided it to incorporate a laundry room and a mudroom. A new exterior entrance was added into the mudroom for traffic in and out of the kitchen and a place to take off dirty boots.

Plan Highlights

  • Clean modern cabinets and an organic green painted island
  • Floating shelves to show off beautiful decorative accents
  • Gourmet appliances
  • Large windows made kitchen brighter
  • Custom designed and built black accent hood
