As a home builder in Downers Grove and surrounding areas, Platinum Builders believes that providing clients with the resources they need during the decision and construction process is essential. Much of the "stress" of any construction process always seems to come from the design aspect and selecting finishes. The following sections are design relevant and will hopefully give you some understanding of the design aspect of any construction project.

Interior Design

Platinum Builders provides our clients with a full spectrum of design services by way of our unique relationship with local interior design firm CHAD ESSLINGER DESIGN. Chad partners with our clients to help them select materials, finishes, and products such as tile, countertops, cabinetry, light fixtures, paint colors, and more! Platinum Builders and Chad Esslinger Design have teamed up for many remodeling and new construction projects, including a project featured on HGTV's House Hunters Renovation!

Kitchen Projects

The rules for kitchen design have opened up over the years. Long gone are the functionally focused kitchen design, with the mixing of colors and cabinets, open shelving and unique implementations. Your imagination and needs outweigh the old "functional" way of thinking. However, there are some design concepts from "wayback kitchens" that are still very much in use today. The prominent one being the "Work Triangle" as well as the basic considerations of layout, storage, finishes and decor. Visit our Kitchen Remodel & Design page to further explore your potential new kitchen.

Bathroom Projects

Much like kitchens, bathroom design over the years has evolved towards the "oasis" approach. Comfort and relaxation has become the pillars in bathroom design, where instead of the utilitarian approach, designers and homeowners are creating mini oases for master bathrooms—giving homeowners the freedom to dream. Homeowners are going to great lengths to create their bathroom dream by adding gas-insert fireplace, in-floor radiant heat, televisions and sound systems, heated towel bars, and even beverage centers. There are no right or wrongs—whatever the dream is for the bathroom design, in most cases can be done. Visit our Bathroom Remodel & Design page, where we breakdown the bathroom design process by layout, storage, finishes and decor.
