Before and After: Stunning Kitchen Remodel in Oak Park Features Family Heirloom


We recently worked with the homeowner to complete a striking remodel in Oak Park with a surprising 19th century family heirloom incorporated in the design. The owner wanted to update the dated style, design, and functionality of the space. So the bump out in the range wall was removed to create a better work flow. By eliminating the soffits, the cabinets were able to go to the ceiling to create a grand feel. Modern features were incorporated such as the floating shelves, a fun blue/green color, and a free-standing hood to really pull the kitchen into this era.

The island was originally the homeowner’s grandfather’s workbench, which was in the homeowner’s father’s garage for more than 50 years. The grandfather was a carpenter and built houses and schools in the Berwyn, Oak Park, and River Forest area in the 1920s and ’30s. The workbench most likely dates from the 1890s.
