Design Dose: Normandy Kitchen Remodel
Don’t you just love a good before/after? Normandy Remodeling designer Ann Stockard just received a Remodeling Excellence Award from National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) Greater Chicagoland for this kitchen revamp in Naperville.
Key to the improvement here were bringing cabinets all the way to the ceiling to make the room seem taller. Stockard also reconfigured shape of the island (what was going on with that island before?) to bring the prep area much closer to the sink, range, and refrigerator, making meal prep faster and more enjoyable.
The shift in the island also allowed for the addition of a hutch cabinet for functional storage. An amber dupioni silk chandelier over the table softens the area.
