Discover the Difference
NEFF of Chicago sets the standard for kitchen cabinetry with innovative designs and features, high-quality materials, and the rare but desirable means of customizing a kitchen to fit your unique needs and preferences.
Whether sleek and contemporary or intricate and traditional, every kitchen should have the “wow” factor. Patrick Borg, President and owner of NEFF of Chicago, and his team of talented designers have made it their ambition to help homeowners design and create dream kitchens, bringing that “wow” factor to each and every masterpiece they fashion. “Every time you walk into your kitchen, you should fall in love with it,” Patrick says.
A NEFF kitchen has the advantage of being both aesthetically pleasing and fully functional, which makes it the ideal addition to any home. While thinking of designing a dream kitchen is often an exciting prospect, it is also, in many ways, a very practical venture. “We say that it’s a ‘dollar in, dollar out’ investment,” Patrick explains. “You spend money on your kitchen, and you will benefit from that the day you sell your home.”
Because each person has their own concept of a dream kitchen, NEFF of Chicago offers a wide variety of traditional, contemporary, and transitional kitchen styles, each with customizable features. Rather than presenting standard kitchen designs that cannot be modified, the designers and architects at NEFF work with customers to ensure that every aspect of the kitchen is modeled to fit each client’s preferences. While many homeowners choose their style and then focus on colors, Patrick often encourages them to reserve color choice as the last decision. By providing take-home color samples, clients are able to test color choices at home before making a final decision. “We tell them to place the sample where it will be in the kitchen, and to look at it at 8 a.m., noon, 5 p.m., and 8 p.m.,” Patrick says. “Then they are able to get a feel for the light in their own home and whether or not the color works well.”
With more than 5,100 color choices for NEFF kitchen cabinetry, the NEFF team of professionals can provide a virtually infinite number of combinations to create your ideal kitchen. While styles and features can be customized to fit your preferences, all NEFF cabinetry is expertly crafted with superior materials, yielding high-quality products that homeowners, designers, and architects alike will be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. The impressive wood drawers, made of solid maple or cherry, are marine-grade exterior quality, water-resistant, and urea formaldehyde free. “You can put a quart of water in the drawer, come back in one month, and it will still be just sitting there,” Patrick says. Additionally, NEFF cabinets are finished with a top coat of acrylic polyurethane—a remarkably durable material used to coat Lexus cars and other top-notch vehicles—which maintains color and does not chip, peel, fade, or scratch.
NEFF cabinetry is also recognized for its innovative and impressive standard features. All drawers are both self-close and soft-close, creating an effortless means of shutting them while your hands are full. The drawers, as well as the roll-out shelves, have a resilient stainless steel lining, while each roll-out shelf also features tempered glass sides, allowing an easy view of its contents. Perhaps the best indicator of the superiority of NEFF cabinetry, however, is the standard three hinges on each cabinet door, rather than the industry standard of two. More hinges on each cabinet door create greater stability and, consequently, longevity. Additionally, while most ordinary cabinets are designed with only two or three shelves, NEFF cabinets feature at least four, eliminating the need for high stacks of dishes. These notable standards, coupled with integrated features such as touch-activated lighting and hidden electrical outlets, all contribute to the efficiency and functionality of each NEFF kitchen.
Located in the remarkable Merchandise Mart, NEFF of Chicago welcomes homeowners, designers, and architects. Homeowners considering installing a new kitchen or closet system— which NEFF also specializes in—are encouraged to learn about cabinetry from the talented and welcoming professionals at NEFF. While many potential clients may have a general idea of the design they would like to bring to life, Patrick and the NEFF professionals have made it their goal to educate consumers on the particulars of kitchen cabinetry and to demonstrate the qualities that make NEFF different from other cabinetry providers.
With extensive experience in the cabinetry design industry, Patrick and his team strive to deliver a superior, enduring product to each customer they interact with. “I’ve had new people come in and say, ‘I put a new kitchen in five years ago, and I’m not happy with it.’ That should never happen,” Patrick says. “Your kitchen should be timeless.” With a thorough knowledge of the product and the ability to specialize each one to fit the customer’s vision, Patrick and his team at NEFF of Chicago are sure to create many more timeless masterpieces for years to come.
