Glen Ellyn Townhouse Transformation

This was a fun and special project for me to work on – it’s my parent’s new (to them) townhome in Glen Ellyn. Downsizing from their previous home, and I collaborated with my architect father on redesigning their kitchen and master bathroom.

The master bathroom was completely remodeled as well from head-to-toe. The existing layout was not conducive to my parent’s daily lifestyle. It had one vanity, an awkward corner tub with a just as awkward corner shower which seemed more like a dungeon than a shower. We gutted the existing bathroom, relocated a wall to create a large walk-in closet, omitted the tub, and created a nice spa like shower. The new layout also allowed them to have a double vanity with a small make-up area in between.

Some features we added into the bathroom were heated floors, which are especially nice during the cold Chicago winters, custom marble tile as an accent in the shower, and a custom shower enclosure which really kept the room open.

By removing the wall, we were able to turn the kitchen layout from the standard “U” shape kitchen to a galley which allowed for more storage and countertop space. White Dove frameless cabinetry from Woodharbor was used to give the space a light and fresh feel, while maximizing space within for easy storage.
