This Prospect Heights kitchen remodel transformed an ungainly thirty foot room into a series of efficient spaces. With the children grown and on their own, this couple sought an intimate retreat for relaxing and entertaining friends. Raised panel cabinets and regal columns anchor a traditionally styled new kitchen with cherry floors and gleaming granite countertops. Hidden spice racks flank the oven, while lighted glass cabinets showcase the owners’ treasured cookie jar collection. Morning coffee becomes a scenic experience at a small bistro table overlooking the scenic garden. In the adjacent living room, a slate fireplace warms cozy conversation.
