Baker's Bliss

Interior Renovation

Lincolnwood, Illinois

Come along for a tour of our recently completed #BakersBliss project! 

This family with three kids and full time jobs in critical first responder positions was ready to make a big change. We completely reimagine
d the first floor starting with the layout and the program. We relocated the kitchen to the opposite side of the home so that it could benefit from natural light, as the original location was constrained and central to the home. This family loves to bake, so natural light was a huge plus for their cooking adventures.


Another huge value add was the conversion of the 3 season porch in a fully in a 4 season space that is flooded with light and benefits from beautiful views of the garden. The bonus lounge area we added here is the client’s favorite spot to relax with her husband in front of the TV and fireplace at the end of a long day. Last but not least, we added a much needed Butler’s Pantry for the client's baking needs and appliances, a display wall for our client’s treasured China passed down through generations and added a Powder Room as this floor did not have one.

One of the most impactful moves that made this project so successful was raising the ceiling line, without the added height the space would not have had the same airy feel. Also rethinking the entire layout of the home was crucial.


The contrasting chocolate wood island against the white kitchen is one of our favorite features, it adds a layer of old-world sophistication without making the space feel dark. Maximizing natural light in the space to create a bright environment was a key goal on this project and all the windows were updated and new windows were added in order to reach this goal.

The living room was fitted out with a statement fireplace lined in split face stone and built-ins for additional storage.


We went in to take photos several months after completion and the home was kept in impeccable organization which reinforces our belief that it is easy to keep a neat home when there is a place for everything and everything in its place.
