This Evanston home addition reorganized the floor plan to accommodate a growing family. By removing walls and repurposing bedrooms on the main floor, we created an eat-in kitchen that opens into a new family room. The island harbors functional amenities such as a trash cabinet and Sharp® microwave drawer, while seating on two sides permits easy conversation. The new second floor features three bedrooms, including a master suite with skylight and walk-in shower. Oak floors and a monochromatic color scheme throughout the new home addition speak to a clean, timeless elegance that never goes out of style.
