Chi Renovation and Design

4868 W. Dempster Street, Skokie, IL 60077

The Chicago design-build firm Chi Renovation and Design focuses on interior remodeling and architectural design. It is a full-service, insured, and licensed business that serves customers’ remodeling needs for basements, kitchens, and other residential spaces. Aside from winning top service honors, Chi Renovation and Design has also been recognized as the leading general contractor in Chicago and the best kitchen and bath remodeler in the city, earning it a wealth of favorable general contractor feedback and recommendations. The firm has finished hundreds of projects since 2016, including design-build, kitchen remodels, and bath renovations.

This project’s previous kitchen was a small galley-style kitchen with outdated cabinetry. Chi Renovation and Design was able to give the kitchen the open concept it required by knocking down the wall separating it from the dining area. The company expanded the room and additional seating with the addition of a kitchen island. Along with replacing the kitchen cabinetry, this renovation also involved the placement of built-in appliances, a brass chandelier, and a custom bench seat. To make the dining room more open to the kitchen and living space, the walls on either side of the room were also taken down.

Advance Design Studio

30 Railroad Street, Gilberts, IL 60136

Since 1992, Advance Design Studio has built residential projects using its unique design-through-construction method, which avoids delays, expensive errors, and increased costs while keeping the project on schedule. Over nearly three decades, the firm has produced hundreds of projects in all facets of the residential building, including expansions, outdoor living areas, basements, kitchens, and bathrooms. From 2015 until 2021, Advance Design Studio received consistent recognition as a Guild Master. The firm also received the National Chrysalis Award in 2022 for a master bathroom remodel in Kildeer.

Advance Design Studio turned this outdated Kildeer master bath into a tranquil retreat. The crew pushed the shower back in order to make room for a standalone tub that was installed just outside of the shower by using some unused closet space. The renovation process also included maximizing the shower and shower bench’s footprint. The new bathroom has a double vanity with cabinetry and white quartz counters, as well as a shiplap vaulted ceiling. This new bathroom now features a shelf for storage, black hardware, and Gold Kohler bathroom fixtures.

The completely bespoke mudroom wall was constructed around a large, stained seat across from the laundry room. The fireplace corbels were imitated and incorporated into the kitchen and butler’s pantry for consistency between the front of the house and the back expansion. The fireplace mantel and bookcases featured iron straps and rivets. This remodel won a National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) Remodeling Excellence award.

This Arlington Heights first-floor renovation won the 2021 Gold Key Award. Patrick A. Finn Ltd. removed the wall separating the dining room and kitchen, which opened up the whole back of the home. The space now has a large, u-shaped kitchen with a peninsula that is open to the rest of the house and even has enough room for a separate dining table. By installing a full glass door and sidelights in place of the rear patio door, the other side of the kitchen was made more luminous.
