Project Feature: Minnetonka Main Level Transformation

We're excited to finally share the details of this stunning main level transformation our team recently completed! The homeowner of this Minnetonka, Minnesota rambler, felt like her main level had become dated and a little cramped. The original floor plan featured a large fireplace that extended from the basement up through the roof, which separated the kitchen and family room. To create a more functional, open floor plan, we removed the entire fireplace structure. Once we started demolition on the main level, our team found some structural issues with the roof. The repair required removing and rebuilding the roof structure in the middle of winter. Despite the setback, the final design turned out beautifully! We love the mix of white cabinets with stained cherry, which adds warmth and depth to the space. The kitchen is so much more functional now, thanks to the ample counter space and a generous island topped with a gorgeous quartz countertop. Creative storage solutions in the drawers and cabinets keep the kitchen organized and clutter-free.  The great room's wood beams and fireplace mantle perfectly complement the built-ins and give the space character. Rounding out this main level transformation is the newly remodeled sunroom, which features shiplap and wood beam ceiling accents. Our team had so much fun working on this project, and the homeowner was a joy to work alongside! She knew her vision was from the beginning, which made it easy for us to bring it to life. Keep scrolling for a closer look at this newly renovated Minnetonka rambler—and be sure to get in touch with our team to discuss your next remodeling project. We'd love to help you complete your home transformation! Design Details Cabinets: Modern Design Cabinetry Fireplace: Sherman Masonry Countertops: Cambria Appliances: Warners' Stellian

An Interior Designer Answers 3 Frequently Asked Questions about Home Design

Whether building a new home or remodeling an existing home, Knight Construction Design, Inc is focused on helping clients create spaces they love. We know the process of designing a home can be overwhelming for many homeowners. That's where our interior designer, Kristen Peck, comes in! Kristen works closely with each client throughout every phase of the design process. From the initial meeting to drawing plans to finishing touches, Kristen is an expert in how design and construction impact the quality of a home. When working on your home's design, it's only natural to have questions. However, Kristen has found some questions are more common than others. Today, she's sharing her answers to three popular questions about interior design. Check them out below!  

"Do you think this matches?"

As an interior designer, I'm not a big fan of the word "match" when it comes to design. Focusing on whether pieces match perfectly can leave a lot to be desired in the completed design. Instead, I'm a big believer that things need to coordinate without being too matchy-matchy. I think finding the right balance between matchy-matchy and complimentary adds a personal touch to any space. My grandma had a great eye for design and she would always say, "if you love it, it will work." I think this makes a lot of sense because all the things you love or are drawn to should work together in harmony. With that in mind, focus on mixing different materials and textures to add visual interest and depth to the room's design. My favorite way to do this is by mixing metals with a variety of textures.

"Will white cabinets go out of style?"

I think white cabinets are a very classic look. With that in mind, I don't think they will ever really go out of style. Many older homes feature cabinets in a classic white inset shaker style, which is still popular today. If you were to look at the design of an older home, like this 1920s kitchen, you'd see what I mean. In fact, many of the styles popular back then are coming back into style again, like the classic plumbing fixtures shown in the photo.

"How do you decide which trends to use in a design?"

At Knight Construction Design, Inc, we don't design a home based around trends. Instead, we look at the architecture and style of the home and incorporate design elements that complement it. While trends are great, it can be hard to say which ones will stick around. When designing a home I like to stick to classic materials and colors for more permanent fixtures like floor coverings, tile, and countertops. Using tried and true favorites for the base of a design ensures it won't go out of style in just a few years. Before deciding which trends to incorporate into your design, it's always a good idea to ask yourself how much it will cost to remodel if the trend goes out of style.
