This small, outdated kitchen in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood was in dire need of a complete renovation. By simply removing a wall, the kitchen was integrated into the rest of the living area. Generic white cabinets were replaced with natural maple cabinets to create an airy, spacious feel. A quartz countertop in rich Coffee Brown extends to a large seating area for enjoying casual meals or keeping the cook company. The once bland backsplash was traded in for warm colored glass tiles that pull together the color palette of brown, brick and rust. Pendant lights make the counter below sparkle while providing a modern and functional lighting solution. A border in brick red frames the kitchen setting it off as a focal point for the entire first floor of the home. No longer cramped and claustrophobic, this kitchen is now a warm and welcoming gathering place.
