Success Stories: New Cabinetry in Winnetka, IL

April 23, 2013

Seigle’s recently finished a home remodel with North Shore Builders just one block from Lake Michigan in Winnetka, IL. This brand new construction home features MasterBrand Cabinetry throughout with brands including Décora Cabinets and Diamond Cabinets.

In the kitchen we have Décora Prescott inset cabinets painted white. The top doors in the 48” high stacked wall cabinets all have clear glass and a 2 piece crown moulding go to the 9’0” ceiling. Inset panel ends are on all the exposed ends and panels on the fronts of the refrigerator and dishwasher to maintain a consistent look in the kitchen. The island has an open shelf at one end and wine storage on the other end. The back of island is finished with wainscoting.

Breakfast Area
The breakfast area uses the same inset cabinetry as the kitchen. Peninsula wall cabinets with mullion doors are used and can be seen from the kitchen or great-room.

Bulter’s Pantry
In the butler’s pantry, the same look as the kitchen was maintained with painted inset cabinets. The center wall cabinet is bumped out and staggered to the ceiling. The sink base below is also bumped out and 2 tapered legs replace the toe kick. On the ends, the wall cabinets have three drawers below that set on the counter top and match the three drawer base cabinet below.

Master Bathroom
In the master bath, we have cherry chocolate cabinetry. The arch toe kicks on the vanities are used to give a furniture look and feel.

Basement Bar
The basement bar is meant for entertaining with a large wet bar using Diamond cherry cabinets with glazing. The wall cabinets are staggered with the corner and two end cabinets bumped out and raised going to the ceiling with crown moulding. Bead board is used as back panels of the base cabinets to finish the look of the bar.

Home Alone House Sells: Reminiscing on Our 15 Minutes of Fame

March 13, 2012

Home Alone houseThe house made famous as the one that Kevin McCallister “has to defend” in “Home Alone” sold last week for $1.585 million. This has us thinking about our stroll through Tinsel Town back in 1990.

You remember the scene: Kevin McCallister sits at his kitchen counter eating cereal, and it dawns on him—the hustle and bustle of having all his relatives in his house the previous evening is no longer there. He thinks about it, and worriedly delivers a great line from the movie, “I made my family disappear.” Then he remembers their rude comments to him from the day before, like “You are such a disease!” and “Look what you did, you little jerk!” Then he says it again, all the worry gone from his voice, “I made my family disappear!”

We remember the scene well. As well as the pizza dinner scene from the night before, the firecracker scene where one of the burglars thinks he’s overhearing a mob gunfight, and the blowtorch to the head during the famous defense of the house battle. Why these particular scenes?

Because these are some of the most memorable kitchen scenes from the movie, where Seigles Cabinets took its stroll through Hollywood. The house immortalized in “Home Alone” was located in Winnetka, IL, and Seigle’s actually supplied the MasterBrand cabinetry for the filming of the movie. So while everyone else is enjoying the young Macaulay Culkin charm as he cocks his BB gun and says, “This is it!” We are looking over his shoulder to catch our appearance in this Christmas classic.

So feel free to watch the movie again, imagine what it would be like to live in that famous house, and be on the look out for our guest appearance!
