“Once the exterior was wrapping up, we moved to the kitchen, which needed a complete update,” commented Vince. “The homeowners wanted an open layout, which is a huge kitchen trend right now.” A light, the fresh scheme was created for the kitchen, including a stucco hood to complement not only the home’s history but also tie in the stucco exterior of the house. “After finishing the kitchen, powder room, and other miscellaneous updates, we focused on the second floor to update the master bedroom and bath,” says Vince. “The whole house now functions to meet the homeowners’ daily needs, but still boasts the rich heritage of the home, which was the overall goal.”
Industry peers admire Vince’s ability to restore this Spanish home with a functional layout that incorporates beautiful colors and materials reflective of its roots. The home received a Remodeling Excellence Award from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, Chicagoland.
