Project Location: Wheaton, IL
Design Challenge: The goals were to maintain the functionality of the current space, but add some breathing room for entertaining as well as to provide a view to the homeowner’s side yard. It was also important to the homeowners to create a space that felt like it belonged in their historic 1866 home.
Solution: The solution was to bump out the space about 10 feet which provided ample room for large pro appliances, a large island for gathering and an upgraded pantry space. Details such as matching new trim to the existing large custom profiles in the original home and re-purposing an existing door to be used for the new pantry gave the new kitchen a sense of belonging in the older home. A large window at the main sink provides that view into the yard and a beautiful focal point for the room.
