    Too small, outdated and inefficient, this kitchen needed an overhaul. By creatively redistributing space, Plekkenpol Builders was able to find space to reconfigure and enlarge the kitchen, add considerable storage and tons of new counter space, and add an 8-foot by 8-foot granite island, big enough for the whole family (and a few other people!) to gather around.

    Like many homes built in the 1950s, the interior was very dark and badly in need of brightening up. The kitchen was updated with white custom cabinetry, granite countertops, all new appliances and a beautiful natural stone backsplash.

    Though this kitchen was large, it was spread out and ineffectively utilized. A complete remodel maximized the large space while creating a more efficient floor plan and adding all of the modern amenities the homeowners desired.

    A year ago the homeowners were looking for the perfect Edina home for their growing family—and they found it, except it was a bit of a fixer upper. Among other things, the kitchen was small and closed off and did not provide the open concept living space the family desired. Today, a gorgeous open kitchen ties everything together and provides unobstructed views of the backyard and patio. A huge granite island invites friends and family to pull up a stool.

    "We want to let you know how thankful we are for all of the people at Plekkenpol Builders who helped make our remodeling project a huge success and pain-free experience! From our very first meeting, our Project Manager worked hard to make sure we had everything we needed to guide us through the design process and figure out how to make our dream a reality. Our Production Supervisor did an excellent job coordinating all of the workers and staying in communication with us. His attention to detail and on-the-spot problem solving always left us knowing that we were in good hands."
