This kitchen is a project of Thrive Design Studio. It is located in a house in Minneapolis. The existing kitchen dining space needed quite a bit of TLC. Oversized vent hood, white Corian countertops, old cabinets and a ceramic tiled island filled the space with an Eighties design. Lighting and appliances matched the era of finished materials. On the other hand, the overall layout was sound with a beautiful open plan made for soaking in views of the backyard & entertaining. Now the kitchen is equipped with Cosentino’s Cradle to Cradle certified counter, Plyboo’s custom bamboo cabinets, custom furniture from local manufacturers Rust Brothers and many ‘green’ features.
