This young professional couple had been renovating their old shotgun Chicago brick home for a few years, saving the daunting kitchen remodel for last. They wanted a wow kitchen that fit their modern personalities and their vintage home. Eclectic it is!!

The client wanted an open floor plan from the front to the back of the house. With existing structural elements and key mechanical components to work around, the available space was predefined for us as a galley kitchen which would open to the dining room and family room towards the front of the house and a breakfast room towards the back. Opening up the back wall of the house and putting in floor to ceiling windows transformed the space with amazing natural light flooding in. They also wanted to incorporate the exposed brick that was hiding behind the plaster walls adding to the vintage feel of the home. I suggested a transom window at the top of the brick wall to break up the material and give it a bit of a modern “loft” vibe. Adding open shelves instead of wall cabinets to showcase as much brick as possible was a natural progression for the layout of that wall. Using reclaimed wood for the shelves was a natural choice for the overall aesthetic.
