Western Springs Kitchen Remodeling Project

Sometimes just updating your kitchen can make an entire house feel more modern and sleek. With this Western Springs kitchen remodeling, the space was completely transformed from drab and out-of-date into something ultra-modern, sleek, and contemporary. So, what exactly did we do?

Many homeowners will request a more traditional kitchen as they feel this is a more classic route to take, but others like to be a little more daring. This Western Springs kitchen remodeling uses high contrast with light hardwood floors and dark custom cabinetry with contemporary hardware for high-impact style. New stainless steel appliances help tie the contrasting materials in with the slabs of granite on the walls. Nothing says modern and contemporary like forgoing the kitchen tile (it’s also a GREAT way to avoid tedious tile grout cleanup). Matching granite countertop seems to blend seamlessly with the slabs, giving a sleek look. Select cabinets also feature translucent doors that break up the very dark palette. Recessed lighting in the ceiling, as well as under the cabinets, brought in the right light that this kitchen needed.

We always say that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and the design should reflect that. Good design is not just about choosing the right colors – it’s about creating a space that works well and makes actions easier. Although this U-shaped kitchen is not very large, storage space was maximized by adding the stove overhead to the ceiling rather than right above the stovetop, providing more room for the custom cabinets. This is something every homeowner should consider if optimizing storage is an issue for you. Meeder Design & Remodeling has over 40 years of experience in the western Chicago suburbs area.

Beautifully tailored, subtly detailed Clarendon Hills kitchen remodeling by Meeder Design & Remodeling. This 3D model shows the contemporary design of a spacious, open kitchen. Perfect for those who love to cook for friends and family! If you’re getting ready for your own kitchen remodel, read on for tips from the pros.

  • Refinish your cabinets rather than replace them. Keep appliances, furniture, and architectural features in proportion to the square footage of space you are dealing with.
  • Set up an alternative cooking space for the duration of the remodel. A microwave and stack of paper plates next to your laundry sink is usually the simplest option. A complete kitchen remodel typically takes 6-8 weeks or longer!
  • Make up your mind to avoid delays and extra charges. Decide on — and order — all materials (plumbing fixtures, appliances, flooring, countertops, tiles, paint, and so on) before the crew arrives.
  • Consult with your remodeling contractor beforehand to get the benefit of their expert recommendations, professional discounts, and verified measurements.
  • Consider flow. Allow space for activity and foot traffic.
  • Optimize storage. It is useful and practical to have plenty of kitchen storage space. This can range from cabinets to floating shelves to islands.

See it in action

Take this Clarendon Hills kitchen remodel for example. There is plenty of space around the main island for multiple people to maneuver while cooking. Storage comes in the form of cabinets, island shelves, floating shelves, and open shelves. Open shelves give the opportunity to put attractive tableware or decorations on display. This adds character and accents to the space, too! The potential of this large kitchen is maximized with floor to ceiling windows in a dark color which helps to anchor the feeling of the light and bright color palette. White beams also help to create structure and avoid it from feeling too cavernous.

Willowbrook Kitchen Remodeling

Does your kitchen feel out-of-date or doesn’t seem to fit your lifestyle? This Willowbrook kitchen remodeling project received a complete makeover! Meeder worked with the clients to find what makes their perfect kitchen. Recessed lighting was added to the new ceiling for the family to see perfectly as they cook. Custom white cabinetry was installed, as well as redone windows, and a light hardwood flooring. New stainless steel appliances and hardware were also added. The updated layout also maximizes space and ease of use. On the right (not pictured), a coffee bar is the perfect place to prepare morning coffee and evening drinks. While the kitchen has an overall more traditional design, the glossy pale green subway tile pairs well with the green wall color to add a modern touch.
