Renovation Style Magazine recently featured this project along with Rebekah Zaveloff, principal of KitchenLab, LLC. The article focuses on the kitchen portion of the project, but the rest of the home renovation can also be seen on their website. This project will also be featured in an upcoming issue of Chicago Home and Garden Magazine. Their website is a must-see, even if you are not planning a kitchen renovation, but would like to fall in love with one. KitchenLab and Boomgaarden Architects work hand in hand to bring you the most value for your construction dollars.
Rebekah is an amazing designer. While her expertise is in kitchen design, her abilities reach much farther than this one room. Her designs are not only well thought out from a functional standpoint, but create the progression and flow that professionally designed kitchens have. In my work with her she often includes architectural elements such as built-in china cabinets, bookcases, window seats, and when appropriate, interior columns to tie the renovated kitchen into the existing architecture of the home - and with great success. She excels at integrating a clients personal aesthetic with the period details within a home, without compromising functionality. This is a true mark of a good kitchen designer. Another asset she provides is her talent in assisting clients with the myriad of details that come with a kitchen renovation, including hardware selection and placement, both task and ambient lighting, tile and grout options, color schemes and how they work with the selected finishes – and how all of these relate to the rooms visible from the kitchen. Rebekah has a great eye for color, texture, fabrics and proportion; she’s detail-oriented and meticulous with the contractors making sure they install everything correctly and to specification. I have received countless compliments on her remodeled kitchens, and highly recommend her services to anyone looking for the perfect kitchen.
