Success Story: See Before and After Kitchen Remodel Photos!

August 26, 2013

We recently completed a beautiful kitchen remodel in Dundee, Illinois. In this project, the homeowner wanted a banquette instead of a dining table. The trim carpenter made the banquette and the table to match the cabinets in cherry wood, including soapstone countertops. Check out the dramatic transformation in the video below!

Cabinet Line: Dura Supreme
Door Style: Craftsman cherry
Countertop Style: Soapstone

3D Virtual Kitchens Offered Free to Seigle’s Customers

January 4, 2013

When you are looking for a new kitchen, you can visit our showrooms to pick out the brand and style of cabinets you like. Then look through our cabinet samples to see, feel, and pick out colors. Even if your selected cabinets are displayed in a showroom, it’s often difficult to visualize what they will look like within your space.

That is why Seigle’s offers 3D kitchen designs for our customers. Once we have the specs of the space, we can create your “virtual” kitchen to help the homeowner visualize what the finished kitchen could look like. We can draw the desired wood, door style, and color. We can even incorporate peripherals that may have an impact on the design, like a homeowner’s table and chairs, lighting ideas, curved walls, or vaulted ceilings. Best of all you can view our virtual kitchen from any angle.3D kitchen design

This service helps us to explain to the homeowner what we plan to do, and it helps the homeowners to tell us if we are on the right track, or if we need to make any changes. Before the construction begins, the homeowners can see and look forward to the finished product.

Offering 3D kitchens helps to ensure our customers are satisfied. We are happy to provide the service free to help make decisions easier for the homeowner.

If you’d like to visualize your new kitchen, contact Seigle’s today!

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!
