A Natural – West Suburban Kitchen Design- Winfield, IL

As the central feature of a new built home, this clean, streamlined, contemporary kitchen was designed for empty nesters looking for a spacious kitchen with two separate workstations and a layout designed for entertaining, cooking and convenience.  The objectives were an easy to maintain space with a natural palette that had accessible storage at appropriate heights for the taller couple. They desired modern appliances and  different lighting options for a variety of settings.

Inspired by modern mountain ski homes from trips gone by, the overall goal for the feel of the space was to be soothing, with subtle natural colors, and light. The kitchen’s main prep sink with the galley workstation is on the island across from the cooking area and refrigerator/freezer. A warming drawer is located on the same side along with double ovens plus a steam oven located on the end of the island. This layout keeps  guests out of the cooks work area and makes entertaining easy.

The result is a soothing beautiful kitchen designed for entertaining family and friends and function with a strong attention to the finer details and the natural setting of the home and outdoors.
