From Tired Trad to Terrific in Clarendon Hills

We went with a minimalist, clean, industrial look that feels light, bright and airy. The island is a dark charcoal with cool undertones that coordinates with the cabinetry and transom work in both the neighboring mudroom and breakfast area. White subway tile, quartz countertops, white enamel pendants and gold fixtures complete the update. The ends of the island are shiplap material that is also used on the fireplace in the next room.

In the new mudroom, we used a fun porcelain tile on the floor to get a pop of pattern, and walnut accents add some warmth. Each child has their own cubby, and there is a spot for shoes below a long bench. Open shelving with spots for baskets provides additional storage for the room.

Photo by LOMA StudiosAfter: Better flow and seating for the whole family were the top priorities for this remodel. The designer removed the small island and peninsula and added a long center island with five counter stools. She also moved the refrigerator to the side wall of the kitchen to help the space feel more open.
