This family was moving back to Illinois! After spending some time in St. Louis, a new job opportunity brought them back to Chicagoland. And with that they found a perfect home in a fabulous part of town. One problem…it was showing it’s age and wear & tear. BUT this was no worry for the new homeowners. They had been though remodels before, so it was just part of the charm. With the move a few short months away, we had to get right down to work. Since the clients knew what they liked and wanted, design & selection meetings went off without a hitch and before you know it, the work had begun in the house. Not a room was untouched and by the time they moved in, their vision was a reality.
For their kitchen, we re-oriented the island to make it longer, so that we could get more seating and functionality. This meant moving the refrigerator to a different wall, to pick up necessary square footage. We also created more space by recessing the new pantry cabinetry into the wall instead of placing on the wall. This was no easy task since we had plumbing pipes coming down from the first floor. But by the end, we had one a stunning kitchen!
