We completed a wonderful transformation from standard golden oak cabinets and an ordinary 80’s look to a sophisticated sleek contemporary design for a kitchen in Algonquin, Illinois

  • Countertops. Your surfaces will be the base of your kitchen, and will pose as the key detail that will tie the look of your entire space together. For a professional-grade kitchen, you should consider gorgeous, natural stone, such as quartzite, which is a truly timeless material that will leave a long-lasting impression within your space.

This large, beautiful home in West Dundee, Illinois was in need of a totally new kitchen! The original kitchen had golden oak cabinets, a peninsula between the kitchen and dining area, and the cook top in the island. We brought this kitchen out of the 80’s and created a warm and inviting French Country Kitchen for a family home in West Dundee, Illinois.

  • Sinks. When choosing a sink, you will want to create a look of diversity. After all, if everything matches perfectly, it can create a lackluster appearance within your kitchen. Therefore, consider stepping outside the box. Utilizing an old-style farmhouse bowl or a hammered-metal prep sink would be ideal, as they will offer a pop of flair within your kitchen.

The butler’s pantry cabinets in this home  Cary, Illinois adds such character to the space. It is complete with a beverage refrigerator, wine rack, glass door cabinets, plenty of storage, and a working space.

  • Cabinets. Without cabinets, your kitchen would certainly be missing a powerful aspect of décor! Break away from the solid white cabinets and instead opt for transparent glass doors. Or, consider the use of wire-mesh or metal doors, for a more industrial, yet flashy appearance.

A custom new home build in Carpentersville, Illinois has clean lines and efficient style, making it warm and inviting! A shaker style select alder cabinet with a rich chocolate stain for the perimeter cabinets, and a cream colored painted finish for the maple painted cabinets, was selected. In addition, there are stained maple floors throughout.

  • Lighting. To add the right ambience to your kitchen, lighting is key! Hanging lights are ideal, as they will add some pizzazz to the room, and act as a unique focal point. Wire or metal would be great materials to utilize, along with dimmer switches, to provide just the right amount of light that is preferred. Also, some additional wall sconces would complement the hanging fixtures beautifully. In addition, don’t forget to incorporate under cabinet lighting, ambient, and accent lights.
    • Details. In addition, little details can bring a room to life! Your backsplash, lighting, and flooring will all work together to create your beautiful space. Each little detail takes time to create, so give yourself an ample amount of renovation time to complete your space. It is ideal to have all of your materials confirmed at the warehouse before beginning your renovations.

Your professional-grade kitchen will surely be a popular space within your home! These are just a few ways in which you can design yours. If you are interested in working with a Carpentersville, Illinois interior designer, please feel free to get in touch with White Oak Interiors
