Making Your Renovation Experience Enjoyable

DESIGNfirst Builders Blog Near Chicago, Illinois


Today’s Feature Friday presents, Miss Bonni’s Kitchen from Lake Forest, IL.

What better way to start off the new year, with a brand new kitchen remodel? This beautifully modernized kitchen will make you want to reconsider the functions of your own kitchenette! With the tastefully finished flooring from Eleganza, our designers used a Wood Land Maple/Gray styled floor tiling along the kitchen, laundry room and powder room. If you notice you’ll be able to see the detailed back splash from Vicostone Quartz in Bianco Romano, these details really give the kitchen area a special touch. Let’s not forget the rich cabinetry and counter tops that really puts this kitchen together! The cabinetry and counter tops, featured are from Decora in a Brandywine Espresso finish (cabinets) and Cobblestone finish for their counter tops.

Be inspired with this design, and have the kitchen you deserve!
