I wanted to renovate the 20+ year-old kitchen in my West Loop condo, and Areté was recommended to me by several people. The quoting and design process with Ivana, Vasilka, Kate, and Davor was very straightforward, and I was extremely impressed that the initial design proposal required very little alteration before moving into the construction phase! The design was perfectly suited for my taste!
Moving into the construction phase, Marina was my project manager and she was amazing at managing all of the logistical aspects of the demo/build! As is the case with any large project, there were a few unexpected complications. Marina worked with all of the various contractors to ensure such complications were resolved quickly and to my liking! Not surprisingly, there were a few delays in materials and appliances due to supply chain issues. Marina and the team were very transparent about any delays, and did a great job of working around appliance delays!
Overall, I’m extremely pleased with the results! My new kitchen looks fantastic while remaining functional. In addition to the kitchen, Areté also lightly remodeled my office/guest bedroom to include a Murphy bed and built-in cabinets, while still retaining the home office workspace that I need! Thanks so much, Areté team!!
