Project Type: Kitchen + Dining Room Renovation
Neighborhood: Old Town, Chicago

Home Type: Single Family Home
Timeline: 10 weeks 

This single-family home that we worked on in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood came through to us via a referral. We had previously completed a project on a neighboring property and they recommended IRPINO Construction to our client. For this particular project, we undertook a complete first-floor renovation including kitchen and flooring. 

For this project, we:

  • Incorporated custom millwork including crown molding and wainscoting; 
  • Installed custom shelving;
  • Installed custom cabinetry that was sourced from Studio41;
  • Installed a large peninsula with quartz countertops, a waterfall edge, and a breakfast bar with seating;
  • Installed a backsplash;
  • Completely painted the first floor and touched up the walls and ceiling with some plaster and primer.

Why was this project unique?

  • We removed the entire first floor, leveled it (which in some places, was a difference of up to 4”), and then rebuilt a completely new ¾” CDX solid plywood subfloor;
  • We used 7” wide vinyl plant waterproof flooring;
  • Installed and wrapped a support beam with custom walnut millwork and installed custom walnut shelving;
  • Updated all electrical and plumbing;
  • A complete reconfiguration of the kitchen layout to better suit the needs of our client/family;
  • Helped improve the lighting on the first floor with the installation of LED recessed lighting and pendant lighting;

The end result? A brighter, open-concept kitchen and dining space that has a modern, refreshed look and feel to it.
