2017 Remodeling Excellence Award

Whole Home Remodel: Mixing Vintage with Contemporary

It was time to make a change. The homeowners loved the charm of their vintage, Glen Ellyn home. However, it needed a design refresh and a change in layout. They wanted a contemporary look, but didn’t want to compromise the charming feel of the home. To help them merge these two styles, they worked with Normandy Designer Karen Chanan.

“When remodeling, it is important that the style and the architecture of your home mesh well,” said Karen. “However, you also need to stay true to your style and create a space that feels like you.”

All in all, these design decisions were well-thought out and provided a complimentary mix of contemporary and vintage charm. In fact, it was so well executed that it received a Remodeling Excellence Award from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.

Set up a time to meet with Karen to start your next home renovation project. Or, register to attend an upcoming workshop to better understand the remodeling process. You can also gather design ideas from the Normandy photo gallery and on Normandy’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
