Making Your Renovation Experience Enjoyable

This home, in the Hoffman Estates area was transformed into a showstopper by renovating spaces throughout the entire house. For this project the homeowners resulting design provided more modern facilities such as updated kitchen and bath designs. Much more than that, the design integrated the owners’ style and personality throughout the entire home, such as the reclaimed barn wood flooring incorporated into several rooms.

A kitchen renovation is a significant endeavor that involves seeing both the big picture (layout, design, and style) and the details (appliances, cabinet accessories, tiles, and much more). The design you select must fit your home decor and enhance your lifestyle, and the details you add must be both functional and fit the style of your space. For the avid cook in a busy household, an Elkay Lustertone Triple Bowl Kitchen Sink is one of those small details that can make a big difference in your day-to-day kitchen life. Hand blended to a highlighted Lustertone satin finish, this durable sink is constructed of thick 18-gauge stainless steel. A magnificent blend of traditional and contemporary themes, Ekay Harmony Lusterstone sinks embodies simplicity yet resonates sophistication. Featuring straight lines and round profiles, this family offers an unrivaled transitional geometry.

The beautifully open space designed, has created more storage and walk way throughout the home. Our designers went with cabinetry by Diamond in an Opaque Coconut (Opaque with Glaze) or “Inspired Collection” painted finish. Because of its unique characteristics, this finish is quite different from other cabinetry finishes you may be familiar with. These cabinets really give this kitchen the perfect touch for someone who is in need of much space and storage for a big busy family.

As you’ll notice, you’ll find the accent backsplash throughout the kitchen counters. Our designers chose MSI Premium Natural Stones in Colonial White. Natural Stone is a product of nature and is natrually subject to inherent variations in color, shade & veining. Natural stone’s mineral characteristics create a visible texture within the stone and are to be expected in the finished product.

From drab to fab, this whole remodel is such an inspiration!
