2015 Contractor of the Year Award
Traditional Burr Ridge Kitchen Remodel Wins Second NARI Award
This Burr Ridge kitchen by Normandy Designer Leslie Lee has a rustic, yet traditional style that expertly conceals many modern amenities. From a furniture style refrigerator armoire, to concealed waste bins that open with a tap of the knee, the quality craftsmanship and details convey old world charm while providing easy access to a myriad of modern conveniences.
The homeowners’ goal for the renovation was to create a European-inspired kitchen that was rustic, yet also elegant and refined. Custom crown molding, cabinetry profiles, pilasters and cabinet feet were added to the kitchen cabinetry to create layers of detail and interest in the space. “The kitchen island pedestal and refrigerator armoire bring a furniture-like quality to the space,” notes Leslie.
The kitchen design and renovation was executed with such skill and detail, it recently won a Regional Contractor of the Year Award (CotY) by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). This designation is in addition to the Remodeling Excellence Award received by the NARI Greater Chicago chapter earlier this year.
