Contemporary Collaboration in Chicago Condo


Designer, Julie Dunfee, of Julie Dunfee Designs, took on the task of redesigning an entire condominium unit for her clients.

The unit which serves as the couple’s pied-a-terre, is located in downtown Chicago and is in near proximity to immediate family, offering the opportunity for both weekend getaways and family get togethers.

How to reimagine your kitchen space?

Julie brought TKS Design Group in to help with the contemporary kitchen design and cabinetry layout.

Below is what the kitchen area looked like before:

Give it a refined, elevated look

One of the primary objectives was to have a sleek contemporary feel, so an eco veneer was chosen in a dark stain for the cabinetry in a horizontal grain. Custom appliance panels at the fridge and dishwasher as well as panels along the back wall were added to continue the look of wood around the room. Custom doors cleverly hide the washer and dryer and provide a cohesive look to the space.

Add practical yet unique kitchen features

Other storage solutions include dual pull out pantries and a built-in trash bin. A small beverage station was added to a previously unused corner of the neighboring living room

Now, guests can easily help themselves to coffee or espresso from a built-in coffee unit or a cold beverage from the beverage center.
