Traditional Kitchen with Fresh Update- Glen Ellyn, IL

This kitchen was completely updated from top to bottom starting by removing the soffit at the ceiling and eliminating ornate details. The layout was improved for two avid cooks and a punch of color was added. The original large oversized black hood was replaced with dramatic custom metal to create a lovely focal point. 

A soft, weathered blue paint finish was selected for the island and the fridge armoire to add some color and life to the space. Reclaimed wood beams added character while a gorgeous wood top on the island offers plenty of room for guests and buffets. The small furniture style prep island gives the cook a separate work area and the dramatic lighting adds a pinch of personality.
