Kitchen Remodel: Saying good-bye to the 50s
Cabinets 4U, Inc.

Not only did this Western Springs, IL kitchen need a style update, it also needed a re-design. In order to improve the functionality of the space, the layout was changed to create a more efficient work triangle. The refrigerator was built in, adding much needed pantry storage. Soffits were removed to allow taller cabinetry with a chic crown molding.
The client chose Kemper ‘Choice’ maple cabinetry in a modern sleek style, with a rich Chocolate stain. A neutral subway tile backsplash makes the cabinetry and stone countertop pop as the focal point. The contemporary faucet and oversized stainless steel pulls complete the transformation.

Was it really even a kitchen before, or just a room where all the ktichen appliances were? Great job reinventing the entire space!

We do have staff designers, but in this case it was a team effort, including the architect and the contractor. There was a fair amount of work done besides the kitchen.

The Chocolate stain on the cabinetry sounds as delicious as it looks in the photos!

Hi Starterhouse! It's a bit bigger than it probably looks - the doorways chop it up. The sink wall is 136", the range wall is 97", and the alcove area with the refrigerator is 82".
