Case Study 3: Rogers, MN
This kitchen seems to be the same color with the floor, counter tops, and the back splash all being beige. There was no visual interest to welcome people into the kitchen.
There is more visual interest with the new counter tops, flooring, and back splash. The counter tops themselves are a “Wow” factor simply because of the movement of the granite. It’s a beautiful slab.

The pictures do not do justice to the beautiful slab that the homeowners picked out. There are greens, grays, a deep burgundy, tans, and an influx of sparkling material to give a sleek shiny appearance. The burgundy ties the new dark floor in, and the green and gray color stays with the great room color theme. The granite counter top also brings a modern edge to the kitchen to juxtaposed against the traditional cabinets. I helped the homeowners by asking questions like “What type of feeling in the room are you trying to create?” Also,” how much modern versus traditional style did they want?” The homeowners came back with they wanted to have basically a traditional home with a modern touch. This is why we stayed with the traditional wooden floor with a more modern granite counter tops.
The back splash even has the traditional subway tiles with glass tiles to again mix the traditional versus the modern look.
