This spacious contemporary kitchen features gray granite countertops, custom cabinetry and a plasma TV. Ample countertop space provides plenty of room for food preparation, as well as a small breakfast bar that serves as the perfect space for casual dining.
This apartment has an amazing view of the Chicago skyline, so designers added window walls to highlight that aspect of the space. Large modern couches give the homeowners an optimal view of their gorgeous city, but also gives them prime seating in front of their large plasma TV.
Designers maximized the stylishness of this space by using green technology and the home's infrastructure to conceal some of the home's less attractive features. To bring the fireplace into the space, designers used an eco-smart, ethanol fireplace that requires no venting or special accommodations, giving the home the warmth and elegance of a fireplace without needing to vent it to the outside. Then, HVAC ducts were hidden behind the faux chimney and plasma TV.
