Diana Burton Wins Best in Show
The dramatic Western Spring home renovation opened up much of the vintage home’s first floor; completely reconfiguring the kitchen and living areas to be more welcoming, functional and up-to-date. Earning perfect 10s from three judges, this kitchen design also earned first place in the Medium Kitchen category, as well as receiving the award for most impressive Before and After Kitchen transformation.
"The original space had significant issues to overcome, including a chimney that had to be integrated into the space. Our team thrives on creative challenges," said designer Diana Burton. "We reconfigured the space to make it appear that the chimney was part of the plan all along."

Alicia Saso, AKBD designed a remarkable Glen Ellyn home remodel that won Most Dramatic Makeover and in the large kitchen category, third place and the Before and After awards. The design incorporates original fixtures from a 1930s Spanish colonial into a streamlined, modernized, open space.
