Timeless Burr Ridge IL Kitchen Makeover

Kitchen Design

Question:   When does a kitchen become “outdated”?

Answer:     When the homeowners outgrow an existing kitchen and it loses its appeal.

This was the case with a recent suburban Chicago kitchen remodeling project by Drury Design’s President, Gail Drury, which began with a 70s-style kitchen featuring both laminate cabinets and countertops. There were multiple design challenges – enlarge a cramped kitchen to embrace a bright sunroom, make it multi-cook friendly, and design a more timeless, traditional kitchen to compliment the home’s architecture and style.

Timeless White Kitchen Design

A combination of white painted inset cabinetry, walnut island with Calcutta marble top and backsplash make a striking statement in this recent  Burr Ridge, IL kitchen remodel by Drury Design.

The original traffic flow was awkward and the ceiling heights and soffits and were low, creating a space that needed updating. With the new kitchen design, the soffits and a load-bearing wall were removed to add volume to open up the floor plan and let the room breath a bit.  The sunroom opening was also enlarged and framed by inset white cabinets with glass doors, so dishes and glassware could be accessed from both areas, and guests and cooks could enjoy the view of the beautiful backyard.

In addition to the main sink area, a new farmhouse sink on a walnut island with seating created one of two separate work triangles anchored by a 60” Wolf range with double ovens and large mantle hood, also accessible from both areas.
