Glen Ellyn Bar in Transition

Thirty years of cooking in this condo kitchen meant it was time for a redesign. For homeowners who entertain regularly and are avid cooks, the goal was an elegant and contemporary space with top-end appliances to prepare gourmet meals.

The client dreamed of replacing her builder-grade oak cabinets with elegant white.  Designer Diana Burton suggested a creamy pearlescent cabinet finish with whitewashed wood floors. Striking, dark Mari Blue granite counters offer drama and contrast. State-of-the-art appliances include an integrated Subzero fridge, dual fuel range and steam oven.  Glamourous water marble mosaic tile accents the niche over the range and butler’s pantry area.. The result is an elegant, modern kitchen with top-notch functionality.
