What’s the most requested design feature in a home remodel? An open-concept floor plan of course! When this Oak Brook couple wanted to bring their dated 1970s home into the 21st century, their first priority was opening up the first floor to make their home into a grand entertainment space.

Kitchen Remodel Details:

The heart of every home is the kitchen. The kitchen is where the family gathers for meals, and friends congregate for parties and holidays. This kitchen redesign was built to be center-stage; a built-in eating area graces the kitchen island, and a carefully designed workflow was created to ensure effortless meal preparation and keep the cook in the middle of the party.

When flawless entertainment is the goal, no kitchen design of this caliber would be complete without top of the line appliances. This kitchen remodel includes:

Wolf double ovens carefully located to provide convenience

Wolf microwave drawer for added ease

Wolf 48” rangetop for ample cooking space

Sub-Zero integrated refrigerator/freezer for maximum storage

Miele dishwasher for easy cleanup

To give this kitchen design its modern glow, contrasting light and dark colors and textures were used throughout. Antique brown granite countertops coat the island, and a Lumix quartzite covers the perimeter counter and range wall backsplash in combination with multi-colored marble tiles.

Designer, Jason Wickline carefully planned out every little detail from the stainless steel custom hood to the Terzani pendant hung over the eating area. The result is an elegant design carried throughout every room in the house.
