When Chantal of Devane Design started in on her client's oak-filled Twin Cities kitchen, she knew it was going to take a major update. But there were a few limitations to updating the design. They were restricted to staying with the footprint of the kitchen, but were able to open up the space and move a few appliances around. Take a look to see the newly remodeled kitchen!

First things first: The color and mood of this kitchen have completely changed! It went from outdated to luxe thanks to the dark brown cabinets and dining set. Plus, by removing the peninsula that made the kitchen a U shape, the space feels way more expansive. And the kitchen island not only makes for a great space to cook, but it also has plenty of storage.

You can also see that Chantal was able to build in a desk area for her clients as well. We love the idea of a kitchen workspace, since we spend so much time in our kitchens already!

One of the things that was too cost-prohibitive to be changed was the header above the sink area. Instead of removing it, Chantal added floating shelves to make it more of an architectural element that fits well with the rest of the kitchen.

Thanks so much for sharing your client's remodel, Chantal!
