With her family grown this homeowner was finally able to realize her dream of her kitchen her way. The complete remodel allowed for a larger window to showcase the beautiful backyard view, a switch from a peninsula to a much more chef friendly island, an increase in seating, a new built in home office center and a complete update.
From the 1950’s to 2018
In a long overdue update Rick brought this Wilmette Kitchen into the modern era with solid natural light, wonderful stone, beautiful hardwoods and stunning gold subway tile. Behind, beneath and above all that is the 60+ year jump in technology – plumbing, electrical, lighting, etc.
Wanting a more efficient, beautiful kitchen, these homeowners had Rick completely gut and re do this large area in their home. After moving the door to the dining room and installing a new bay window for the sink, Rick had room to include a new, large granite topped island and a home office area. That, coupled with all new oak floors, appliances, cabinets and custom lighting, created the kitchen the family had dreamed of.
Park Ridge Kitchen
Recognizing that their lifestyle meant that their kitchen was frequently overcrowded while their Dining Room was dreadfully underutilized, this client asked Rick to build them a whole new kitchen utilizing both spaces.
The project included:
- Removing a wall,
- Relocating plumbing, electricity and air ducts,
- Installing all new Oak Floors,
- Building a new, custom masonry chimney and fireplace with mantle,
- Creating a Wet Bar,
- Building a custom Kitchen Island, and
- Installing new Cabinets, Granite Counters, Appliances, and Lighting.
The result is a truly beautiful space that the client will enjoy for years.
White Glenview Kitchen
Rick and team updated this Glenview home by taking away a partition between an old Kitchen and Dining Room, removing the old kitchen and installing a new one in an expanded configuration. The project also included all new hardwood floors throughout the main floor, and the homeowners are very pleased with the result.
For this project, Rick removed a load bearing wall that defined a breakfast area, enlarging the kitchen and incorporating a new eating area into it. That along with the new appliances, plumbing and cabinets and new floors throughout the first floor beautifully renewed this 1960’s colonial home.
Glenview Great Room
Overcoming the challenges of removing a load bearing wall that contained a lot of plumbing and electric wiring and installing a long support beam invisibly in the ceiling allowed Rick and team to open this new kitchen to the adjacent living and dining rooms. With all new appliances, cabinets, plumbing and electric wiring, this kitchen is set for years to come.
