2010 Remodeling Design Award

2 Time Award Winning Kitchen in Wilmette


IMG_0259CThis beautiful kitchen is a part of every day life for one lucky family in Wilmette, IL. Whether it is entertaining family and friends, enjoying quiet Sunday morning breakfasts or gathering together during meal prep time, this timeless kitchen is the perfect backdrop for creating lifelong family memories.

It just so happens that a panel of judges agrees that this kitchen is pretty special indeed. Having just won a “2010 Remodeling Design Award” from Remodeling Magazine, this space has previously recognized as “Best of the Best” by Professional Remodeler Magazine in 2009.

Normandy Designer Vince Weber, worked closely with the homeowners to create an open and spacious floorplan with timeless beauty and appeal. “The existing kitchen was isolated from the rest of the house,” says Weber. “One of the redesign goals of the homeowners was to tie the kitchen with the living room to create a ‘living kitchen’ that would function as the central gathering space for the family.”  The resulting design paired timeless colors and classic inset cabinetry to give the kitchen a casual elegance. The island was designed to feel like a furniture piece, which creates a visual divide between functioning kitchen, and the informal eating and living space.

Weber worked closely with the homeowners throughout the design and construction process to ensure that their goals were being met.  In the end, the homeowners are very happy with their new “living kitchen” and are proud to have this two-time award winning space in their home.
