Searching for their first home in St. Paul, Minnesota, David Heide and Michael Kitchen Cabinet Options Crull soon realized that the houses in their favorite neighborhood were selling within a day in bidding wars. After a long hunt, they found what they describe as “a mess,” with a color and material palette of “baby blue and dirt,” on a street they’d once deemed too busy. But they were in a seller’s market, and they knew they could make the most of the 1922 Prairie School house’s great bones and Craftsman details. A new addition gave them the kitchen of their dreams, complete with beautiful craftsmanship, materials and details worthy of their home’s vintage. "Photos by Susan Gilmore BEFORE: Let’s take a look at how the home changed. Here is the “before” floor plan. On the left, you can see the back entry — “you basically walked in and fell down the basement stairs,” Heide says. The Kitchen Cabinet Options couple began to plan a basement renovation that would incorporate a proper back entry. AFTER: Their basement renovation plans soon grew into a 14-foot-deep addition off the back of the house, and incorporated not only a proper entry but also a new kitchen, a powder room and a covered porch. The original kitchen became a breakfast room open to the new kitchen. David Heide Design StudioAs specialists in these types of renovations, the couple knew all the right people to help them. They enlisted cabinetmaker Jon Frost to create beautiful red birch cabinetry that echoes the woodwork seen throughout the home. “Jon’s talent consistently makes us look Kitchen Cabinet Options good in our business,” Heide says. “In any project, you have to know what the most important element is and what the supporting players will be,” Heide says. Because the beautiful cabinets were the stars, the couple chose soft greens for the countertop and tile so as not to overwhelm with contrast. The counters are Typhoon Green granite, and the backsplash is a handmade soft green tile that picks up on colors found in the counters. The cabinets have a shellac finish that enhances the depth of their faces. It’s hard to call the lighting a supporting player. The couple designed it themselves and had the Kitchen Cabinet Options glass shades blown at Lundberg Studios. They then had the light fixtures made at local company Lightworks. They also switch between two sets of glass shades — amber for winter, because it lets off brighter light, and this deep red for summer.David Heide Design StudioThe panel fronts on the dishwasher and refrigerator blend with the cabinetry. The design underneath the sink provides ventilation for the radiator behind it; Heide and Crull used a similar strategy for an air conditioner return vent over the refrigerator. The apron-front Kitchen Cabinet Options farmhouse sink is another era-appropriate touch. When I asked Heide if they collected anything in particular, he laughed, not knowing where to begin. Russel Wright is a favorite, along with other pottery and art glass from the 1920s through the early 1960s, and many other items. Before PhotoBEFORE: Unfortunately, the kitchen’s original details had been ripped out years before Heide and Crull bought the house — this “before” photo gives you a good idea of how far they had to go to bring it back to the appropriate era. The angle in this photo and the following one match up.David Heide Design Kitchen Cabinet Options StudioNow this breakfast room sits where the old kitchen was, while the new kitchen is part of the addition. The small table is Stickley Brothers with a Harvey Ellis inlay; the chairs are Stickley reproductions. Heide and Crull like to use the shelves for cookbooks, magazines and some of their many collections. The new windows are casement windows that match the windows in the original house. “Give us two hours, and we’ll completely rearrange the house,” Heide says with a laugh. “We also seem to change with the seasons.” Here, the breakfast room serves as an office.
