Highland Park Kitchen Remodel

Transitional Kitchen, Chicago

Grand Prize Winner of the 2012 Crystal Cabinet Design Awards! A fire in the laundry room of this home left the kitchen with a lot of soot damage from the fire and even more water damage from the sprinkler system. The homeowners had to see it as an opportunity to redesign their kitchen to create the kitchen they really wanted. They’d been dreaming of a “classic” look that wouldn’t age. After eliminating a triangular bump into the back wall of the kitchen, the space has a much more open feeling. The traffic is able to flow better from the kitchen to the eating area and around two large islands. The hood became a great focal point of the kitchen and houses extra workspace, which allows for easy preparation of every day meals as well as food for entertaining. We were able to achieve a unique, customized look by mimicking a door style the homeowner had once fallen in love with and using it in an inset application. With paint grade material and a Frosty White finish paired with black granite and white subway tile, the kitchen is timeless. Details are aplenty from an eleven foot wide hood to a refrigerator and freezer built into a nook, framed in crown, to tall glass display cabinets. The two large islands command attention and provide ample work space, including a clean up station with a farm sink flanked by two dishwashers.
