Emerald Elegance: Modern Lake Petersburg Kitchen

Welcome to this bold, modern kitchen with gorgeous emerald green backsplash tile.  It is definitely the focal point as you step inside this beautiful lakefront home. This open kitchen is lovely, sleek, modern, and functional — you couldn’t ask for more! 

The Renovation Background

The homeowners had this home built over 40 years ago, with a floorplan that made sense for their family. Now years later and the separated dining room, piano room and kitchen no longer reflected their needs, and the finishes had fallen out of style. Above all, playing with grandchildren and entertaining friends and family now top the list of “most important things”.  

Over the past 10 years, they had reached out to several contractors to discuss the possibility of removing load-bearing walls to create the open kitchen they desired. All of those discussions had come up empty. As a full-service remodeling company, DreamMaker was able to step in and take on this large first-floor renovation – removing 3 dividing walls to create a beautiful and bright open living design. 

The New Floorplan

This client knew she wanted to be able to see the lake outside her window while washing dishes! Mission accomplished.

The expanded footprint of the kitchen now allows for both a large island and an extended-width peninsula, all without a hint of being crowded. The kitchen side of the peninsula is the perfect clean up zone with deep single-bowl sink and dishwasher, while the back side of peninsula is extra storage for less used items – baking sheets, a tote with children’s craft items, etc. While the back wall of the kitchen is the work horse with induction cooktop, double ovens, refrigerator, and microwave, it is not lacking aesthetically. Cue the tile focal point.

The beautiful blue/green backsplash perfectly pulls the lake elements into the home with style and elegance wrapped in one! The beautiful details in this new open kitchen:

  • inset style doors,
  • Showplace cabinets painted in White II (perimeter),
  • contrasting Oak island,
  • honey bronze hardware,
  • Quartz countertops
  • undercabinet lighting as well as over-cabinet lighting
  • pull out drawers
  • pantry style floor to ceiling cabinets
  • bold crown molding

Purposeful Storage Solutions

In crafting this kitchen, we wanted to elevate its storage functionality. The seamless pull-out drawers, effortlessly giving an allocated space to everything from the largest kitchen accessories to the smallest essentials. Even a dedicated utensil drawer ensures a clutter-free countertop, allowing for optimal kitchen workspace.
