The rear-entry kitchen in this 4-square home had been dreadfully remodeled in "the 90’s” with oppressive colors and a tortured floor plan. Nothing worked. The challenge: create a kitchen suitable for a modern family while also honoring the historical aesthetic the owners loved. Kitchen Designer Mike Lotz and the Bluestem team modified the flow of space and created an inviting, functional and bright kitchen with ample storage, a hard-working back entrance and a practical powder room. By reusing and recreating historical details, and then adding in modern textures and colors, a fun blend that is both pleasing and a little edgy is created.
