Let the Sunshine In
Remodeled by Interior Planning & Design Inc., 1260 Iroquois Ave., Suite 112, Naperville, IL 60563, (630) 848-2119, www.interiorplanning.com
The owner of this Naperville home wanted to let daylight into her circa-1945 kitchen and transform it into a larger, more inviting and contemporary space, reminiscent of her Florida home. Working with the homeowner, Joan Kaufman from Interior Planning & Design Inc. created a space with double the cabinet storage, an island and a peninsular bar area. The ceilings were raised and vaulted, and a new maple veneer beam was added to match the cabinets below. Skylights and a new sunroom adjacent to the kitchen bathe the space in natural light.
