“Soft & Gracious”
Kitchen Design in Northbrook, Illinois

Kitchen Design Overview

Jason Smith
Kitchen & Bath Designer

This kitchen was designed for a fun loving couple in Northbrook Illinois. After meeting with Jason and Sue, I knew they needed something low key and relaxed to fit their laid back style.

The design of the kitchen is clean and simple. I really focused on using elegant material selections that would collectively sing. I wanted each step to offer a slight surprise or nod of attention without being overbearing.

The highlight of the space is this stunning Blue Star range. Not only does this look impressive but the client loves cooking with it.

I loved using a farm sink in this kitchen design. It plays well into the soft and gracious theme I was after.

The fridge area was recessed into the garage space, allowing for a larger and more spacious kitchen. The large walkways make for an easy flowing kitchen.

At the rear of the kitchen you will find my hidden gem. Floor to ceiling storage with my signature style. The client loved these, and I did too.

The seating area is the perfect space to enjoy coffee on a Sunday morning.

The hand made back splash tile is another subtle detail that drives this design home for me. I love the subtle contrast between the counter, tile and cabinetry.

The clear glass pendant lights were a good choice for us. The edison bulbs add a cool factor and the clear glass keeps the space feeling light and airy.

Here you can see how it all comes together. I love the way the hardware and lighting add so much character to this Northbrook kitchen.
