Roscoe Village Master Suite Remodel
We live in the Chicago’s Roscoe Village neighborhood. This is an older home that needed a ton of work and what we thought would be a weekend DIY project turned into much more and after a year, we decided to meet with a designer who was able to come up with a unique custom style that we were looking for, for instance, the sink is something that you wouldn’t normally see in a bathroom. The unusual structure and layout of the space caused some concerns, with the old chimney being where the door to the bathroom is now, but everyone was able to work around things to give us the bedroom and bathroom we were hoping for. Everyone we dealt with was nice, efficient and super easy to deal with.

Evanston Kitchen Remodel
We were looking to do a full kitchen remodel and had a few ideas in mind when we contacted Chi Renovation & Design. Larry was able to take those ideas and run with them. The ideas were entirely new and innovative, such as the roll away section of the buffet. He was very knowledgeable in getting all the specific appliances to work with the design and was also able to incorporate several other elements into hidden pull-outs. Another feature, that really adds to the space, was the light-box above the island; it really accentuates the space. Overall we ended up removing two interior walls and completely moving the footprint of the kitchen, to compliment the unique architecture of our home and are very satisfied by the final result as we know, it was no small task.

1950’s Retro Kitchen
We came to Chi-Renovation with the unique design challenge of renovating our kitchen but we really wanted to incorporate a 1950’s retro twist. Larry really helped us bring our vison to life and came up with some great ideas to reconfigure the existing layout to make it more functional. The reworking of the kitchen layout really opened up the space and created a new focal point of the space with the loft above. We went with mint green custom colored cabinets, glass cabinet doors, and retrofitted appliances to pull the whole design together and add a bit of personality to our home.

Kitchen & Banquette
From the very beginning of the project, Chi Renovation was very straight forward about the scope of work. They made sure we were comfortable with the decisions and really put an emphasis on making sure we were happy. The kitchen was in desperate need of a renovation and had a lot of different problems we wanted to resolve. Larry was great in finding solutions that really improved the feel and the functionality of the entire kitchen. We also were able to include a banquette, which is something I have always wanted but was not sure if I could ever have. Overall we are very happy with the space and it fits perfectly into our lifestyle.

We recently had our kitchen renovated by Chi Renovation and we are delighted with the outcome. I could say that I was very nervous about having this done because of the horror stories I have heard about getting this kind of remodel done. So, I did a lot of research and we found out about Chi Renovation, it was very impressive and they actually turned out to be what they said they were going to be.

We were delighted with the work that Chi Renovation did in our home, both during construction and in the planning leading up to it. They were able to take care of the entire design process and made sure we were all on the same page, which really helped the process run smoothly. In addition to the kitchen, they also refinished our fireplace, which was something we had no clue how to approach. Even though the layout of the kitchen remained similar, due to some clever planning and creative ideas, the entire space has just become so much more functional and we could not be happier with the end result.

Des Plaines Kitchen Remodel
We did a kitchen remodel with Chi Renovation and Design. They gave us exactly what we wanted. We have lots of great features. Overall, it was a great experience. We had a lot of fun actually working with our project managers and they were really entertaining, nice people and made us feel very comfortable. They addressed any problems that came up and handled them as quickly as possible, so we are really thrilled with that.

River North Kitchen & Dining
We were looking to re-configure our existing kitchen to include a new island and update the space. The thing that ultimately led us to work on this project with Chi-Renovation & Design was that they were approachable, they really listened to our opinions and took everything into consideration. We had some ideas we wanted to incoporate and the designer was able to put everything we wanted together, including some ideas we hadn’t even thought of. We love the extra design suggestions he made, such as the drawers, undercounter microwave, beverage center, and built in fridge. If you are looking for a company that is attentive and works with you throughout the entire process I would highly reccomend Chi Renovation & Design.

Joan’s Bathroom Renovation
I did a bathroom renovation with Chi Renovation & Design and everything turned out great. The reason I picked Chi was because I really hit it off with the designer I spoke with in the beginning. Not only was she really friendly, informative and organized, but also shared my vision. I felt like when I said something, she said yes and then sort of described exactly what I wanted. The pricing was also really great and fit into my budget. I also felt like I was getting really quality stuff from everything she showed me. Now it looks like a completely different space.

Lincoln Park Bathroom
While looking for someone to work with on or bathroom renovation, we were impressed with Chi Renovation’s reviews and portfolio. Nicole was incredibly helpful and detail oriented throughout the entire design process and Eric was very responsive and attentive during the construction process. We had to reconfigure the bathroom layout quite a bit in order to make it more functional and did a full gut remodel. We absolutely love the new tub, the new layout, the extra storage and the overall functionality we gained from the new design.

West Town Bathroom Renovation
We knew pretty quickly that the function of our master bathroom was not gunna work for us and so we called Chi. They were very quick to come out and take a look at the project with us. The designer came and we met for an initial appointment . Then over the course of several weeks, we were able to share our vision with her and she honestly just ran with it. What we had in our minds was exactly what she came up with and that process for us was easy in terms of decisions being narrowed down for us. Our designer did a beautiful job of capturing our vision, narrowing it down and then allowing us to make easier choices that worked with our schedule. The company has all the materials delivered before they start working, which for us condenses the time frame of actual work being done. That is wonderful with a family with two small children, when you don’t want dust flying around. Chi was extremely responsive to all our concerns and responded to our emails, texts or phone calls in a timely manner. We could not have dreamt that this space would have been as functional and beautiful as it is. We are thrilled with the project and definitely recommend them and hope to come up with projects in the future they can help us with.

Gold Coast Bathroom Remodel
My name is Ana. I called Chi Renovation because it had been 10 years since I had done any work on my condo and I was ready for a new look. I got three quotes and ended up going with Chi Renovation because they gave me the greatest sense that they would do exceptional work in the time that they said they would do it. Based that on the conversations I had with the project manager, Lior, who talked with me about the work I wanted to have done. Lior made everything very easy for me, he even had a conversation with the building manager, to make sure that I didn’t have to worry about anything that needed to be managed administratively. The work was perfect – very beautiful. The tile work is like art, they made a custom vanity, installed custom cabinets, and the floors look like new. I was very happy with the work and I would recommend them to anybody!

This home was on the verge of quite literally collapsing because the original contractors hired for this project left it void of an essential structural support system. We called in a structural engineer to pinpoint exactly what the problem was and how to fix it. Once we determined the solution was to jack up and enforce the ground floor, we began construction. We poured new footings, reinforced existing metal columns, and created more stabilized support systems using LVL beams. After re-enforcing the entire house, we took to designing the space, which needed to accommodate a play area, media room, laundry closet, and storage space. The solution included a porcelain tile floor, which looks identical to hardwood, with the waterproof resilience necessary for a basement. We also repainted, installed beautiful new recessed lighting and built an ongoing theme of new crown molding.

Hi, my name is Anthony Bryant. We were doing a renovation job here, a big job actually, we were renovating the whole house. We started in November some time. We found Chi Renovation on Angie’s List and they came out right away, gave us a competitive quote and did a fantastic job renovating the bathroom here. So, not only did they renovate the bathroom, but they also did a walk in closet next door. As you can see they did a fantastic job and we’re very happy with their work. And we want to thank them for a job well done. Thanks!
– Anthony, Northbrook
I started working with Chi Renovation in Chicago several months ago on a kitchen construction project. I had been putting the project off for almost five years because of infrastructure problems, namely the floor base and the beam post that supports the kitchen. What was really outstanding about their work, was their attention to that sort of detail, which you normally don’t see but makes a big difference in the stability of the house, as well as the ability to build on further from that. Chi Renovation took the time to really work through all the do and re-do’s, when I didn’t like the way something initially worked. Eventually, things really worked out perfectly. They were excellent at working with materials and sent out excellent tradesmen. They were really great to have in the house. I definitely recommend them, particularly if you have a major infrastructure issue.

I had Chi Renovation help me with my home in Deerfield. We had a tremendous amount of water damage after a sewer backup and I needed so much work done. It was so overwhelming! But Chi Renovation came out and they were able to break down all the different things I had to get done and even helped me prioritize which things were the most important. They were very professional and timely, they also gave me really good options for different materials. When it came time to remove the damaged materials they were very careful and made sure the dust didn’t get to other parts of my home, which I was very concerned about. The floor looked beautiful, they painted and replaced some of the trim, and they replaced many doors. I was overall very happy with all aspects of their service. I would highly recommend them to anybody.

We were hit with some flooding and had to do a lot of different renovations to our basement. We hired Chi Renovation and they came out and were awesome. We were able to add some new closets, a new bedroom and a new laundry room. They had a lot of good advice for layouts and waterproof flooring so that this would never happen again. Overall, it was a really great experience and the contractors were awesome to work with. We’re so happy it’s complete!
– Christine, Skokie
I recently had water in my basement so I reached out to Chi to do some work. They came out right away, which was the first thing that impressed me. They were always very timely, from responding to my initial call to turning a quote around. They even started the project the day after we signed the contract and they wrapped everything up pretty quickly as well. We ended up with a new floor, which looks fantastic, they built a custom-made baseboard, that perfectly matches our existing one, and they painted the walls. Lastly, what really stood out to me, was how they communicated throughout the entire process. I would receive updates via phone call and text message all the time, so I knew what was going on! So between the timeliness, quality of work, and excellent communication, I couldn’t be happier with the work they did. Thanks a lot guys!

When my bathroom needed an overhaul, I contracted Chi Renovation to update my entire bathroom. Not only did they complete the work in a timely manner, but they were able to provide solutions during unexpected circumstances. The work involved new tiling along the walls, a new pedestal sink, and a new bath. Our experience with Chi Renovation was cordial, professional and they were very trustworthy. I highly recommend Chi Renovation.

Hi, my name is Janet and we are in my basement where we recently completed a home basement remodel. We used Chi Renovation to do the work, it was headed up by Lior and his crew. We had a very good experience working with them. They were very professional, friendly and courteous. Most of all though, when we compared them to other contractors that we interviewed for this project, Lior especially had very good vision and was very easy to work with, very efficient. He also brought my ideas, with his professional experience, to make it a satisfying project for all of us.
– Janet, Winnetka
We had a lot of work that we needed to do. Our basement had flooded, we had a significant amount of damage and we were also thinking about getting the kitchen done. They came down here and gave us a full explanation of everything and all of our options. They worked with us, gave different options and were very flexible with us. They gave us new resilient floors, drywall, molding, and carpentry, that all looks great. We have a new laundry room, we’re very happy with, as well as a new family room, that we couldn’t use before. It was a very barebones, unfinished basement, and now we have a room that looks nicer than the rest of the house. Now we’re going to have to call them back!
