Hillside Kitchen Remodeling

Hillside, IL 60162 Kitchen Remodeling by Meeder Design & Remodeling

When planning a remodeling project, many homeowners think it means the complete destruction and rebuilding of a room. However, this isn’t always the case.

While the new kitchen still utilizes some of the past structure, there is plenty of new construction to make it unique. prominent is the coveted island, which was built along with the new cabinets. Although made in the same style as the existing cabinets, the island has a darker stain to add contrast to the kitchen’s look. Its granite top is also a lighter color compared to the original countertops, with metallic flecks in the stone.

The same darker cabinets line what was the dining room wall to create separate wine and beverage stations.

The wall also houses perhaps the most unique feature of the kitchen — a dumbwaiter. Built into the lower cabinet of the beverage station, it’s used to bring wine up from the cellar, as well as other items stored in the basement.

Berkeley, IL 60163 Kitchen Remodeling by Meeder Design & Remodeling

Minimal lines, modern hardware and sharp colors top the trend charts this year.

2017 kitchen trends are all about sleek, clean, simple and industrial.

1. Gray counters, walls and floors

Gray is hot — in both the kitchen and the bath. Forget about the faux marble-finished countertops that were popular in 2016. This year, it’s all about dark gray tile on countertops, walls and even on the floor. Combined with stainless appliances, it’s a clean, industrial look with a sleek edge.

2. Glass tile backsplashes

Used in a linear pattern, glass tile backsplashes can make small spaces seem larger. Deep cobalt blue is also trending this year, pairing beautifully with gray countertops and a steel range hood.

3. Contrasting colors

The whole kitchen doesn’t have to be industrial. Paint walls a deep red or blue; install a brightly colored backsplash.   Another way to add a splash of color is to use a harlequin pattern. Think diamond-shaped tiles in four or five different varieties of contrasting colors, making sure the same color never touches.

4. Amped-up storage

Large drawers and storage is at a premium this year, in keeping with the clean, sleek, industrial look of gray countertops. Get your small appliances, tools and accessories off the counter and into a drawer.

5. Light-colored cabinets

If you’re remodeling, it may be time to veer away from dark wood cabinets, either faux or real. White cabinets are quickly becoming the new normal.

6. LED lighting

Grab a ribbon of LED lights and get creative with placement in your kitchen. Whether it’s on top or on the bottom of your cabinets, inside a hutch or under your countertop to emit a soft glow. LED lights come in a variety of colors, and they’re so inexpensive you can change it up, switching to any color that fits your mood.

Westchester Kitchen Remodeling by Meeder Design & Remodeling

Westchester homeowners want exquisite, yet sturdy, flooring and countertops, naming durability and style as their top priorities. Granite is the most popular countertop material. Hardwood flooring lost some appeal but still remains the most common kitchen option. Ceramic and porcelain tile are the choice surfaces of more Westchester homeowners this year.

Custom cabinets are still the top priority for homeowners who want to upgrade their kitchen. Light colored cabinets prove to be more popular than wood-colored or gray cabinets combined. Adding an island or breakfast bar comes in second and third as the top features to upgrade.

Preparing Your Home for Winter

HInsdale Addition

6 Easy Steps to Help Winterizing Your Home

1. Clean Your Gutters

Check that water can flow through your gutters to prevent icicles from forming later.

2. Flush the Water Heater

Flush the water through the drain valve to clear out the material and keep your heater functioning well.

3. Clockwise Ceiling Fans

Have your ceiling fans move in a clockwise direction so they push hot air along the ceiling towards the floor.

4. Replace Filters

Regularly changing the filters in your central air and heating system can significantly improve its efficiency and longevity.

5. Draft Guards

Draft guards can help save heat from escaping under the door. (If you don’t want to shell out for a draft guard, a rolled towel placed at the bottom of an exterior door will also do the trick.)

6. Programmable Thermostat

Install a programmable thermostat now and save money by keeping the temp down when you’re asleep or not at home.
