"My wife and I had a kitchen with 40-year-old cabinets and peel-and-stick tiles that did more peeling than sticking," says member Aidan Gilbert of Hyde Park.

"We knew exactly what we wanted for cabinets, counters and tile. We went with Norpro for a complete gut rehab, because they didn't pressure us into doing something we couldn't afford and because they were comfortable with our desire to source the material ourselves.

"Their staff did a great job, and we benefited from their experience, creativity, and technical expertise. The difference between the old kitchen and the new kitchen is astonishing. And they did all of this work in three weeks and four days!"

Hi ,

Thanks for writing such an interesting article. It’s really good to know about the real estate and home decoration and renovation in detail. Home remodeling is definitely a hot topic these days. While the housing market may be experiencing a temporary downturn, Chicago remodeling projects continue to hold steady simply because many Chicago home owners have decided to stay put in their current homes, opting to upgrade rather than move.

The average home is about 33 years old and with the nation's aging housing stock, Chicago remodeling projects such as replacing windows and roofs are an ongoing necessity. But home age aside, people are adding on, upgrading and remodeling their homes in greater numbers than ever before. Every year, over 25 million homeowners in the U.S. make some kind of improvement to their homes and Chicago remodeling projects are no exception. Large remodeling projects from complete kitchen remodeling to the addition of several rooms, make up a major part of the home improvement dollar invested by homeowners.
