Project Location: Naperville, IL
Design Challenge: Collaborations with builders on new construction is a favorite part of my job. I love seeing a house go up from the blueprints to the end of the build. The challenge in building a new home is that it’s always a journey filled with a thousand decisions, some creative on-the-spot thinking and yes, usually a few stressful moments. The Kitchen Studio collaborated by completing the cabinetry design and layout for the entire home.
Solution: We spend a significant amount of time listening to our clients needs. Starting from scratch allows endless opportunities. This kitchen features many unique storage elements important to the new homeowners including in-drawer charging stations, a cutlery divider, knife block, microwave drawer, pull out trash, multiple appliance garages, spice pull outs and tray dividers. There’s not much you can’t store in this room! Cabinetry is white shaker inset styling with a gray stain on the island. The back of the island features lap style siding that coordinates with the fireplace in the neighboring family room.
