Over the years, the kitchen has gained popularity as the central, most important room in any home. It enjoys round the clock patronage. Starting from a very early morning breakfast to a late-night snack. The kitchen is a loyal witness to any drama in life. Whether preparing an important meal for family or friends, surprising a loved one on a special occasion or making a special dinner for the grandchildren, the kitchen is always there.   

So, when it comes to planning for a kitchen remodeling project, there are a lot of things to consider so that it will become a room where everybody will feel comfortable and welcome.   

At 1 Builders, we want your remodeled kitchen to be a perfect combination of good looks and effective functionality.   A kitchen remodel can take on so many forms of style, materials and color.  Let us be your partners in deciding what will work best for you.

The picture on the top of this page features a beautifully remodeled kitchen with stunning Berwyn Cambria quartz countertops.  The dark brown island which comfortably seats four people and features a beautiful cast iron farmhouse sink perfectly accents the white shaker cabinetry on the wall. And the picture immediately above this section shows a kitchen remodel job we did for a client incorporating white and gray cabinetry.  The second row of cabinets above the wall cabinets with glass are great for showcasing any fine china that our client wanted to highlight to guests. Our client wanted to look into the backyard as their kids played so they had us add three windows which also brought in lots of natural light.  

In the picture that follows, you will find a much more traditional style kitchen remodeling project. The cabinetry installed was an antique white finish and the copper farmhouse sink really gave the kitchen a unique and luxurious feel.  The cabinet pulls, lighting fixtures, and plumbing fixtures were all an oil rubbed bronze finish. The travertine backsplash and granite countertops really tie in nicely with the cabinetry.  In the second photo you will be sure to notice the dramatic waterfall countertop on the island which really makes the kitchen stunning and gives it a clean look.  Another unique feature for the countertops was that the thickness for the countertop on the island was 3 centimeters which really made this kitchen pop.  The beautiful wolf range that our client chose was really impressive since you typically only see this size range in Chicago high end steak houses.

Kitchen remodeling is one of the biggest and most important changes in every home. It reflects the homeowner’s dreams, needs, style, and wishes. The perfect kitchen remodel project has a well-balanced design so it fits everyday usage.   

In this next picture you will find yet another varying style of kitchen remodeling project.   Notice behind the fridge there is a wall that extends out an additional six feet.  This is a custom walk in pantry that our client wanted us to install.  Across from the pantry is a butler pantry with a wine cooler.  The client wanted a more economical and natural countertop, so they opted for granite.  Our client really loves to cook and bake so they had us install a cooktop and a double oven vs a range found in most kitchens.

I want to thank 1 Builders for the amazing kitchen remodeling job that they completed on my last home. Before hiring 1 Builders, I tried to sell my home for almost a year and was unsuccessful. Everyone that came through the home complained about my kitchen because they did not like the styling or layout since it was closed off from the rest of the home. After I hired 1 Builders and they completed the remodel on my kitchen, I almost did not want to move because of how beautiful the kitchen turned out and how it opened up the space. Shortly after relisting the home with our newly remodeled kitchen, we received a great offer on our home thanks to the work you completed.

Outstanding! Juan and Josh handled three complete gut rehab projects my sister and I had. Two of the projects involved the original General Contractor walking off the job. Their knowledge of the Chicago Building department and the skill of their contractors allowed us to move forward quickly to finish off those two homes and put them on the market. The third home was their project from the beginning. The project was a stunning gut rehab of an old Greystone! I highly recommend 1 Builder’s Inc for all of your remodeling and construction needs!
