Scandinavian Minimalist Mudroom + Powder Room Reveal

Welcome back to another reveal at Whitegate Lane featuring a Scandinavian minimalist designed mudroom and powder bathroom. A couple years ago the Jkath team renovated this 1990s home's kitchen, living and dining room. In phase II we renovated major areas on all three levels of the home. So far we've revealed the owner's bathroom on the top level and fun lower level bar.


The beauty of Scandinavian minimalist design is special materials in thoughtful and functional application. Using clean lines and texture to create special moments.


Laundry Room


Clean lines with rich texture balanced by warm and cool colors make this mudroom stand out and not fall flat. Large format slate tile by Clé sets the stage for the other materials. The show stopper element is the rift white oak with a very subtle stile and rail retail that lets the grain move and shine.


The large apron front sink is the prettiest utility sink ever seen, paired with a sleek and clean lined polished nickel faucet. These homeowner's have two small dogs and it's the perfect size to easily get both pups washed.












Powder Bathroom


We love a wallpaper moment! In a sizable powder bathroom on the main floor the Strike wallpaper in Mist by Hygge & West on all four walls makes a statement with approachable subtle colors.


The Kenwood vanity in a cool grey ash finish is another Scandinavian minimalist design element for the space. Selecting vanities from Room & Board were so easy, with multiple finish, sink, and countertop options to chose from. It's rare for us not to custom build 100% of a projects' cabinetry in our cabinet shop. However, we'll admit if and when it makes sense when balancing other custom cabinets elements. The Room & Board vanities live up to our standards. The black Jason Wu for Brizo single faucet provides contrast against the








Next we'll reveal the lower level, a Minnesotan entertainer's dream space. A cozy Scandinavian chalet style living room with show stopper fireplace feature that stands up to the fun tile installation in the bar. Also, a sweet guest bathroom.


Before we go, here are a few 'before' images of these spaces.
