Take a look at this amazing kitchen renovation! The post was written by our designer and originally posted at www.josiejones.com.

I’m so excited to share with you today one of the most amazing renovations I have ever worked on!  I’ve shared much of my client/friends, Amber and Keith’s home.  But today I’m finally going to share the amazing kitchen renovation that we recently completed in their 1906 home!  They used a local remodeling company name J&J Remodelers.  I’ve have been working with this group for the past year and they do amazing work.  They are the greatest group of guys who care so much for their customers and Keith and Amber’s job was no exception!

Here is a panoramic before picture of the kitchen…

Keith and Amber had done almost all of their home renovations themselves up to this point.  But they decided that the kitchen was not something they wanted to tackle.  After interviewing 5 other remodelers, they sat down with J&J and instantly decided it was going to be a perfect fit.  I was able to work with Keith and Amber throughout the entire process- from designing the layout  to cabinet hardware selection.  They were wonderful to work with and I am thrilled with how the kitchen turned out.

Here are the afters…

Before we came on board, Keith and Amber had done some demo and were ecstatic to find this beautiful brick wall.  We decided to make it a focal point of the kitchen.  The tapered range hood allowed more brick to show.  So much thought and planning was poured into this kitchen which made the end results amazing.

The beautiful walnut butcher block island top was done by a company that I found on Craigslist!!  The company’s name is Old Grove Workshop.

They do amazing work and are very reasonably priced.  I would highly recommend them if you are looking to add butcher block tops to your home.

One of Amber’s main requests was that the refrigerator and freezer be quite hidden.  She really wanted them to appear as cabinets so our cabinet designer at Scandia Custom Cabinets worked out a design that gave her exactly what she wanted!

Sorry if you develop fridge envy after this next pic.  Never knew I could be envious of someones refrigerator until now…

Always have to make room for wine!!

Simple white subway tile and black granite counter tops fit this 1906 home perfectly as well as the beautiful Kohler farm sink.

In an effort to keep all of the counter tops clear of clutter, we designed 2 deep appliance garages on each side of the range to store all of the misc. small appliances as well as the microwave.

And since their back entry walks directly into the kitchen, we made sure to include some great “mudroom” storage cabinets to house all of their misc. items.

So as you can see, J&J Remodelers does amazing work.  If you live in the Twin Cities Metro area and are considering a remodel, I’d highly recommend them!!  I assist all of their clients with the selection process and would love to work with you as well!
