While many homeowners across the country enjoy outdoor living areas it may not be practical or even possible in your Chicago area home. With harsh winters and hot muggy summers it might make more sense to bring that outdoor vibe inside and be able to enjoy it year round without worrying about the outside elements. You can have the perfect custom kitchen remodel and still enjoy the outdoor feel by following a few of these simple design tips.

Kitchen Design Tips

  • Take advantage of natural light - Have your kitchen face the sun with lots of windows. Add oversized glass doors and even some skylights if possible.
  • Bring in exterior elements - Use brick pavers for flooring and include natural wood elements such as wood beams.
  • Choose colors associated with outside - Include sky blue hues and greens with some touches of yellow.
  • Include an indoor herb garden and other live plants – Having greenery and live plants will add the perfect touch of nature.
  • Choose an open floor plan - A clean and uncluttered kitchen will give the same feel as a well-kept yard. Take advantage of storage options to hide the clutter.
