Wheaton Kitchen and Dining Room Transformation - A Great Open Concept Space Appears!

Taking the time to assess floor plans and make some bigger changes was the key to this successful Wheaton, IL update. Our clients wanted to open up their floor plan as much as possible in their 1960s home, while updating appliances, adding more storage, and more. Let’s dive into this exciting project!

The homeowners were anxious to open up the space. Several big changes involved our architects. The decision was made to remove the existing wall between the dining room and kitchen, as well as the wall between the foyer and hallway. At the same time, we would also enlarge the opening between the dining and living room, and create a new walk-in pantry.

The dramatic new open concept kitchen and dining area began with some walls coming down. Let’s look at the results!

J&J installed new oak floors throughout the first floor, giving the rooms a glow-up from the group up. In the kitchen, new GE Commercial line appliances in stainless steel offset the new tile colors perfectly. The subway tile you see on the Kitchen Backsplash is Crafted Grey Gloss in the 3” x 12” size. It provides the advantages of a subway tile finish with the interest of a hand-crafted look and texture.

By removing the old tub, the bathroom opened up dramatically, putting the focus on a new freestanding Sterling Spectacle soaking tub. The tub deck faucet choice is a sleek design from Kohler: Alteo, in Polished Chrome.

The butler’s pantry has a special backsplash – Anatolia Obsidian Antique Silver Mirror 3×12 tiles are a shimmery accent that looks great in all kinds of lighting – but especially in the evening. Updated features such as these are understandably popular. They’re perfect for entertaining, but also add highly functional storage and an attractive focal point in the room.

J&J also added a new pantry for the homeowners. The walk-in style keeps the feel of the open floor plan, while increasing storage space.

The new open spaces are a big change in the whole feel of the home, providing just what the homeowners were asking for – wide-open spaces that work with their style. We love helping our clients achieve their remodeling goals with projects like these!
