A Mindful Master in Glen Ellyn

Project Location:  Glen Ellyn, IL

Design Challenge:  Storage was extremely important for this project because our client wanted to go from keeping everything out in the open to having everything tucked away neatly. So we went to work figuring out how to hide as much as possible but still keep things easy to access. Additionally, the house is a classic 1950’s mid-century ranch so we needed to choose materials that fit the bill.

Solution:  The solution was two pullouts on either side of each vanity and a flush mount medicine cabinet above, so plenty of storage for each person. We kept the layout pretty much the same, but just changed up the configuration of the cabinets. We added a storage cabinet by the toilet because there was plenty of room for that and converted the tub to a shower to make it easy to use the space long-term. Material selections with a bit of a Scandinavian vibe, included light maple Shaker door cabinets, black hardware and lighting, and simple subway tile in the shower. White Macauba quartzite countertops were selected bringing perfect earthy energy to the space.

Up Close & Personal:  We primarily get two types of decision-makers when we work on remodeling projects. Those folks who know what they want and what they don’t want and have a very easy time making decisions, and those that struggle with making decisions and visualizing the space all together. Our client would likely admit she is in the latter department, but that’s okay because that’s what we are here for!

Reflecting on the project, we love how much thought was put into each careful decision and agree the result is certainly worth it.
