Our Showroom

Free Consultation

Please leave this field empty.

Designing a new space for your home is a hands-on process. You should be able to browse materials before you choose them, and see the work of a professional team up close. That’s why we have the DESIGNfirst builders showroom, a 12,000-square-foot base of operations where you can see samples, explore fully functioning rooms, talk to an expert and more.

What You’ll See

The DESIGNfirst builders showroom is open to clients and the curious alike—whenever we’re open, you’re welcome to stop on in, no appointment necessary. For existing clients, we have thousands of samples on hand, so you can work with your architectural designers to pick out the best cabinetry, tiling and more for your home. Just dropping by? You’re free to browse, get a sense of how we do things, and even check out fully functioning kitchens and a steam shower/bath, built to completion right here on-site.

Who You’ll Meet

All of our Chicago design/build pros work out of the DESIGNfirst showroom headquarters, so if you’re interested in talking to a project manager or designer, you can do it right here. Most of our clients begin with a free in-home consultation, but if you’re interested in stopping into the showroom first, our friendly staff is here to help.

Our Process

You always know where to find us at DESIGNfirst, and our headquarters is easily accessible from virtually anywhere in and around Chicago. Our design/build team takes a unique, client-based approach to what we do, so we typically start with a free consultation in your home. From there, you’ll join us in our showroom, where an architectural designer will walk you through the process and go over our first draft of designs. Once you’re an official client, you can always reach us here in the showroom with questions, concerns or ideas. This is the convenience and the security that every homeowner deserves, and with DESIGNfirst, it’s just another part of what we do.

The DESIGNfirst builders showroom is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and weekends by appointment. We’re located at 1201 Norwood Ave., Itasca, IL, 60143. You can reach us at (630) 250-7777.

Award Winning


Nick Cimms was the estimator, and he was very good. He came on time, measured all the rooms, due to the fact that I needed 3 bedroom closet doors replaced, and took photos. He went back and put a price quote together for me, very professional.
