First-Floor Remodel Updates a Home Built in the 1960s
Clean Neutrals and a New Layout for Arlington Kitchen and Bath
The homeowners were a young family who had outgrown their tiny and outdated 1960s kitchen. The original kitchen was a small U-shaped kitchen with low soffits and inconvenient cabinet storage and layouts. The kitchen and dining areas were separate rooms with a large wall between the two. It was not the ideal space to entertain their friends, nor was it a space the whole family could enjoy when cooking together.
Mealtime Reimagined with an Open Floor Plan
Chicago Home Buyers Prefer an Open Concept 1st Floor
Together, the homeowners and our designer created their dream space. We removed the wall separating the dining room and kitchen, which allowed us to open up the whole back of the home and create their dream first floor. They now have a spacious U-shaped kitchen with a peninsula for their children to do homework while they cook. There is space for a separate dining table that still feels connected to the rest of the home.
The other side of the kitchen was brightened up by replacing the back patio door with a full glass door and sidelights. Now the whole first floor is light-filled, modern, and inviting.
