Project Location: Glen Ellyn, IL
Design Challenge: The kitchen had been recently renovated by the previous owners, but it was not exactly what our clients wanted. The kitchen needed more drama with a stronger focal point. In addition, there was a lot of potential to reconfigure the window arrangement so that it felt more congruous to the room.
Solution: We were able to re-work all the various windows into one large window, including removing the bay window which jutted out awkwardly over the deck. For the focal point, we decided on a simple angled custom stainless steel hood which sits in front of a full height Cardiff marble backsplash. We added a long island with a Claro Walnut butcherblock top drawing the eye toward the hood while also adding additional storage.
