Your Huntley, IL Neighbor’s Kitchen Renovation
Your Huntley, IL Neighbor’s Kitchen Renovation
Advance Design Studio, Ltd.
After six years of living in their Huntley IL home, Chris and Meghan were tired of their dark, dingy, outdated kitchen and it was finally time for a long-anticipated change. “The kitchen is the place where we live, it’s where we do everything,” Meghan said. “It was important that it be a space where we wanted to be.” Meghan loves cooking and enjoys including their girls in healthy meal prepping, this led them to want a brighter, more enjoyable kitchen with increased functionality and improved storage. For Chris especially, the laundry room was an entirely dysfunctional eyesore. “We had a washer and a dryer, but it was all kind-of cobbled together!” Chris said. “There were always laundry piles everywhere, we weren’t really sure what we wanted to do in there, but it was time for us to make a change.” The mess of the space was stressful every time they walked in the door from the garage each day. Kids’ backpacks and shoes piled up haphazardly in the makeshift boot-bench closet left the family feeling disorganized and stressed. They needed space for folding clothes and locker cubbies to help keep the family organized. Having known Christine and Todd in the Huntley community for years, Chris and Meghan were familiar with their work. “We already trusted them personally and having seen their projects for years we knew they did top notch work. After we reviewed the initial round of designs, we knew that hiring them was definitely the right choice,” Meghan and Chris said. Although Chris had done a lot of work in their home himself, the kitchen and laundry room renovation was such a large undertaking that he didn’t want to steal time away from his family to spend what would surely be many long weekends doing the job himself. “That would not have been a wise choice for us,” Chris laughed. “Our designer, Michelle was very, very, easy to work with; anything we wanted to see or weren’t sure about, she went above and beyond to make this easy for us. She was easy to get hold of and always quick to respond,” the couple said. Michelle pulled ideas that mirrored the couple’s taste and style and was adept at directing the couple to limited choices that didn’t overwhelm them and kept the process moving. “I have a hard time making decisions. Michelle made the decision-making process so easy. I loved how she listened to what I liked and then presented three great options for me to choose from,” Meghan said. The main objectives for the kitchen were better storage solutions, they wanted the space to reflect their lifestyle and taste, and they wanted it to last for years with low maintenance. One of the first steps in creating a more functional kitchen was relocating the refrigerator, creating an improved workflow for the busy family. “We didn’t know that we could even move the refrigerator to a new location where it is now, that was something that we never would have thought of,” Chris said. “The new refrigerator location makes the kitchen feel so much bigger. We didn’t add any space, but our whole kitchen with the new design just seems like it’s so much larger than before!” Meghan said. The perimeter mist colored cabinets helped warm and brighten the entire room, while the graphite colored cabinets on the island added contrast. Using this fresh, clean color palette satisfied the couple’s desire for a bright space that was the exact opposite of what they had before. Organization accessories were also added to the cabinets such as a spice drawer tray and roll outs to create hidden convenience. “I absolutely love the hidden spices – it makes cooking so much more enjoyable!” Chris said. “And all the pull outs, and the double trash bin, who would think you could get so excited about organization!” the couple said in unison. One thing they hated in their original kitchen was how dark the space felt. Added lighting on the ceiling with the new light fixtures combined with the lighter cabinetry colors throughout solved this problem. “Our new kitchen has this warm, almost cozy feeling that our old kitchen never had, it’s just a space that I love spending my time in now,” Meghan said. The light airy feeling was accentuated with the use of floating white shelves on either side of the decorative range hood. “We have so much cabinetry space, the new design is amazing we actually have more storage space than we will ever need,” Meghan said. The island was extended to create more work surface and added space for stool seating. “The new island changes how we live. Now the kids can be in the kitchen with us, doing homework, eating breakfast, and the three of us have special dinners there when Chris is working late,” Meghan said. The Carrara Marmi Quartz countertops were chosen because they are, not only beautiful, but are made from hard-working material that doesn’t require maintenance. The white subway tile backsplash that wraps to the ceiling behind the focal point cooktop range/hood compliments the crisp white countertops perfectly, while brushed brass hardware and light fixtures keep the design fresh and new. The couple had a few fears at the beginning of the project, as most homeowners do. Their biggest fear was being out of their kitchen and laundry room for an extended time. The crew made it very easy for the family to work in a limited space keeping the washer and dryer hooked up the majority of the time, and also getting appliances working with minimal downtime. “They above and beyond accommodated us to get us through the process,” Meghan said. “They did a great job making sure we were as comfortable as possible throughout the process,” Chris added. “Our project manager DJ did a great job. He was very good at updating us on schedule changes, getting guys in as quickly as possible. Everyone that stepped in the house was nice and did great work,” said Chris. They thought Advance’s carpenter was phenomenal and were impressed when he took a conceptual idea from a photograph and worked with designer Michelle to create a one of a kind range/hood that has become the topic of conversation with friends and family who visit the new kitchen. “He was in our house literally every day for several weeks. He was easy to work with and good at what he did,” Meghan and Chris said. The focal point of the kitchen; a hand-crafted, custom-built ventilation hood was clad with handpicked reclaimed barnwood. Advance Design’s carpenter built the framework and the cladding to create a one-of-a-kind design element that the couple loves. “I think it was especially fun for him to create something unique from scratch, showcasing his talent in this area,” Meghan said. “I love that my kitchen is not like everyone else’s. I got to pick out the wood on my hood and watch it being built and was able to choose what pieces of wood went where on it. It’s totally unique.” Red Oak flooring was toothed-in throughout the kitchen and the rest of the first floor anywhere changes were made. Then the whole floor was refinished to tone down the orange undertones in the existing floor stain, ultimately changing the color complexion of the entire first floor. The result is a completely new feeling to the entire home. Renovating the laundry room was extremely important to Meghan and Chris, but they had trouble visualizing what the possibilities were for the seemingly small space. Michelle produced beautiful 3D illustrations that helped them envision the space in a whole new way. “I must have told Michelle 100 times that I am a visual person, seeing the designs in 3D made it so easy to make decisions and see what we could really do with our space,” Meghan said. A dividing wall and doorway were removed between the existing laundry room and hallway formerly containing a coat closet, providing space to design specialized graphite colored cabinetry matching the kitchen island to house custom storage cubbies for each family member. Adding the tall utility cabinetry in the new laundry area helped solve the storage issue, tucking away cleaning supplies, household items, and even the cat got its own cubby. “I love how everything is now hidden in its own space. I can’t tell you how much I hated coming home and seeing everything sitting around on counters,” Chris said. Electrical outlets were planned for the inside of utility cabinets, so devices could charge in hidden locations. Stacking the washer and dryer allowed for wider countertop space to provide a folding area and a special space for clothes to hang. “The way I do laundry has been completely transformed! I can actually fold clothes and hang them now right out of the washer and dryer,” Meghan said. “The end result in the kitchen and the laundry/mud room was an updated light and bright space, with a smarter work flow that better meets the needs of this family,” Michelle said. “I would totally recommend Advance Design,” Meghan said. “Sometimes I sit and just look at my kitchen and laundry room and think ‘Wow, I can’t believe I get to live here!’ It’s an understatement to say we love our new space.”

Style Revamp Finish Carpentry
Who loves laundry? I'm sure it is not a favorite among many, but if your laundry room sparkles, you might fall in love with the process. Style Revamp had the fantastic opportunity to collaborate with our talented client @honeyb1965 in transforming her laundry room into a sensational space. Ship-lap and built-ins are the perfect design pairing in a variety of interior spaces, but one of our favorites is the laundry room. Ship-lap was installed on one wall, and then gorgeous built-in adjustable cubbies were designed to fit functional storage baskets our client found at Costco. Our client wanted a pullout drying rack, and after sourcing several options, we decided to design and build a custom one. Our client is a remarkable woodworker and designed the rustic countertop using the shou sugi ban method of wood-burning, then stained weathered grey and a light drybrush of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in old white. It's beautiful! She also built a slim storage cart to fit in between the washer and dryer to hide the trash can and provide extra storage. She is a genius! I will steal this idea for future laundry room design layouts:) Thank you @honeyb1965

家事といえば炊事、洗濯、掃除がまず浮かびますが、それだけではありません。家に関わる書類の整理や裁縫仕事など、デスクワークも生じます。家事全般を行ったり、家事用品をまとめて収納できる家事室があると、家事の効率も上がります。近年、家の新築時やリフォーム時に家事室の設置を検討する方も増えているようです。

家事室とは

家事室とは、ユーティリティスペースとも呼ばれる家事全般を行う部屋です。日本の家には馴染みが薄いかもしれませんが、海外では、台所や洗濯室の近くにユーティリティスペースといわれる部屋が配置されることがあり、机をおいて主婦の書斎のような形で、多目的に使うことができる家事室が活用されています。

家事に関わる物をまとめて収納できるのも、家事室を設ける大きなメリットです。掃除機やアイロン、アイロン台などをまとめて収納して、その場所で作業できることも魅力です。家事用品を一箇所にまとめることで、キッチンや洗面所、リビングなど他の部屋も片付きます。

家に関わる書類全般、例えば家電製品の保証書や取扱説明書などを家事室にまとめて収納すれば、家族の誰もが探しやすく、いざという時にあわてずに済みます。家事室に机を置けば、郵便物の整理やパソコン作業もキッチンやダイニングのテーブルを使わずにできますね。

家事室の間取り

家事室のレイアウトには、いくつかの種類があります。

  • 家事室を洗濯室に動線がつながるようにする間取り
  • 家事室をキッチンに動線がつながるようにする間取り
  • 家事室を洗濯室とキッチンの中間に配置し、両方から出入りできるようにする間取り
  • 家事室を多目的スペースとして、家事用具の収納や、書斎などとしても使う間取り

家事室のレイアウトを決める際には、今、どの家事をやる時に不便を感じているかを考えると、効率が上がる家事動線が見えてくるはずです。キッチンつながった家事室に机を置くと、台所仕事の合間にちょっとしたデスクワークができます。勝手口や車庫と家事室をつなぐと、買い物したものを運びやすいですね。洗濯室とつながる家事室に作業カウンターを設置すれば、洗濯物を畳んだり、アイロン掛けもスムースにできます。

あなたの家事のやり方や、家族みんなの生活動線を考えて、リフォームやリノベーションの専門家に困っているポイントや、理想のスタイルについて相談してみることをおすすめします。

家事室を作る時に気をつけたいポイント

スペースに余裕があれば、設置を検討したい家事室。使いやすいユーティリティスペースにするために気をつけたいポイントをまとめました。

家事室で行う作業を明確にしておきましょう。これだけは家事室で行いたい、ということがはっきりしていると、必要な収納棚の大きさ、机を置くスペースが必要か、電源の確保などを設計時に組み込むことができます。例えば、洗濯をして、干して、アイロン掛けまで家事室でやるのであれば、各作業の動線がスムースになるように機器を配置しましょう。アイロン台やアイロンとコンセントの位置なども、使いやすさを考えて決めることをおすすめします。「家事をやる場所」と漠然ととらえていると、いざ家事室が出来上がった時、想像した使い勝手と違うということになりかねません。

家事室に収納するものを選んでおきましょう。家事室は家事のための部屋なので、家事に使うものだけを厳選して収納することで、ただの生活用品の物置に変身するのを防げます。

家事室の収納

毎日の家事には、たくさんの用具が関わります。毎日使う掃除道具から、買い置きの洗剤、ミシンや裁縫道具など、あまり頻繁には使わないけれど、必要なときにはすぐ手の届く場所に置きたいものなど、利用頻度も回数もそれぞれですね。そんなたくさんの道具や生活用品の収納におすすめなのはオープン棚です。洗剤や買い置きのなどは中身が見分けやすいワイヤーバスケットに収納すれば、スッキリします。隠す収納にしたい場合は、扉を引き戸にすることで、スペースを取らずにすみます。
