MEDICINE LAKE MODERN KITCHEN | PLYMOUTH, MN

With a moody color palette, integrated lighting, and a sleek design that emphasizes the home’s lakeside view, this kitchen remodel truly embodies its name, Medicine Lake Modern.

These homeowners are very forward thinking and wanted a kitchen with a contemporary design that emphasizes artificial and natural light while incorporating hints of wood throughout. Leaning into the modern style, Kitchen and Bath designer Danielle Lardani designed the space with vertical laminate cabinetry and a full-height countertop wall splash to give the kitchen a taller feel. To keep the design clean and consistent, the appliances were hidden within the cabinets so that they remain out of sight, but right on hand. This space also features metal elements, wood above the island, leather floors, and black accents, all with the intention of blending the design together while adding texture and visual intrigue.

And while this kitchen design may feature a moody color palette, it’s anything but dark. The space is adorned from top to bottom with integrated lighting that brighten everything from the food prep areas to inside the cabinet drawers. Other integrated lighting can be found in the panels of the kitchen cabinetry and even surrounding the base of the center island.

To fit with their functional needs and the homeowners’ love of entertaining, designer Danielle Lardani removed the wall separating the kitchen and dining area to achieve an open layout that could accommodate guests. In addition, a peninsula was created to act as a divider in the space while also providing extra seating. The kitchen’s striking design and unique lighting make the meal preparation and dining experience an Epicurean’s delight.

The clients’ creative ambitions with lighting and design were brought to life with Danielle Lardani's expertise. The end result is a truly unique space that is both functional and beautiful.
