English Cottage - Renovation

Glen Ellyn, IL

This charming 1920 English Cottage style home in the Chicago suburbs contained tons of potential, but needed updating to meet the needs of a modern family. While the original design felt dark and dated, we brightened everything up by introducing a new color palette coupled with a thoughtful lighting scheme and reworking the floorplan to increase access to natural light. The conversion of a sunroom into a kitchen at the back of the home, the introduction of a casual dining space, and the reconfiguration of the original formal dining room into a laundry and mudroom created the functionality that this home needed.
