Oak Design & Construction Wins Gold Key Award for Best Kitchens

December 15, 2012

Chicago Real Estate Forum and Marketing RELEVANCE congratulate for winning an Gold in for .

Oak Design & Construction stated: The focus of this project was to marry three rooms creating a highly functional cooking space and an attractive kitchen and dining area with a “craftsman” style appearance. Unique tile layouts and mixing types of stone helped achieve the hand crafted look we were after, as did implementing traditional elements such as simple cabinet and trim profiles and quartered white oak with handmade hardware. Earthy materials, cork flooring and leather finished granite blended nicely. We augmented the functional, open feel to the new space by maintaining a front to back sightline and some chimney exposure.

The Reddens were pleased with the newer open feel and functionality, additional light, expanded space for food preparation, more overall storage and minimizing the use of the upper cabinets. Incorporating the homeowner’s choice of a special Italian stove made them very pleased. The finished space is more friendly to those preparing a meal and more likely to make family, friends and guests want to linger!
