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 With this Western Springs kitchen remodeling, the space was completely transformed from drab and out-of-date into something ultra-modern, sleek, and contemporary.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.
