Testimonials

…we recently celebrated our sixth year in our Benvenuti and Stein home… To this day, we regularly receive compliments on the design and craftmanship of our home. The cabinetry work, in particular, is second to none… Benvenuti and Stein embraces a formula of timeless design and superior craftmanship that is unequaled. Moreover, you stand behind the quality of your work with integrity and personal interest that is rarely seen in any business today. Thank you to you and your team for building a home for our family that we have thoroughly enjoyed over the past six years. We look forward to the next six!”
Chris & Jill Hartman/Winnetka

“Benvenuti and Stein remodeled our kitchen, raised the ceiling in our dining room, and refinished our hardwood floors. Their entire staff is extremely professional, polite, honest, prompt and clean. One of their design professionals, Kris, was assigned to us for the duration of the 3 month project. Weekly meetings took place so that we were always on the same page as to where the project was in terms of completion and whether any issues needed to be resolved. Any issues that did arise were resolved quickly and to our complete satisfaction. Kris spent many hours with us visiting various suppliers (granite countertops, kitchen and door hardware, appliances). Her advice was very helpful. The level of craftsmanship shown by their carpenters (custom-designed and built cabinetry and onsite carpentry for crown-molding, etc.) is amazing. The project was completed on time and we could not be happier with the outcome. We now have a kitchen, dining room, and hardwood floors that we are extremely proud of. The result is absolutely gorgeous. We recommend Benvenuti and Stein in the highest possible terms. They are simply terrific. We look forward to using them again when it comes time to remodel our basement! ” Philip Reny – Wilmette

Benvenuti and Stein is loyal and trustworthy, and they will impress you at every turn. After they finished designing and building our new home we threw them a party! Our home is our sanctuary and we had very specific ideas on how we wanted it look and how we needed it to function. The company came up with a design that was in keeping with our needs and the historic look of our neighborhood. We love it.”

Bill & Cathy Osborn- Winnetka

“We hired Benvenuti and Stein to turn a bedroom/bathroom into a dressing room. We have a room full of custom mirrored cabinetry that is absolutely gorgeous, window seats and a freestanding chest with jewelry drawers and a bench seat with a large drawer underneath.
They were wonderful to work with. The architectural plans were exceptional.
The crew working in our home could not have been more helpful and respectful of keeping things “tidy”. I always felt the whole group wanted us to be happy with the outcome and put their best effort into the project.
The project was on time and on budget.
I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE my dressing room and quite honestly have never seen one in person or a magazine that I like more.I hope I can use Benvenuti and Stein again.”
Lisa Tank – Winnetka

“We have used Benvenuti and Stein for projects both large and small. They totally redesigned the our 1920′s tudor to bring it into this century. We gutted the floor to open the space and added a new kitchen, powder room, replaced an old hardly used back stair with additional storage and on and on. On another occasion we redid my daughter’s bathroom-another gut and rebuild. Most recently, after a downsize to a condominium, Benvenuti and Stein designed and built the most beautiful bookcases for my husband’s new library. Everyone a Benvenuti is terrific and after having them in my house for several months, I can say I know them very well!” Mindy Munson – Chicago

“My wife and I have used Benvenuti and Stein for 2 projects and we would again. What we like most is the quality of their people. Everyone in the office and on the site behaves like they’re in the sales department. Not only are they courteous, but they’re responsive, competent, and they’re fastidious about housekeeping….everyday. We also found their invoicing to be accurate, consistent with the estimate and transparent. Lastly, they are respectful of the schedule and work hard to stay in alignment with it.
Geno Benvenuti and his architectural staff have a creative eye for how to capture space, and the end result is that the parts of our home that they have reworked always garner compliments while at the same time appearing to have been integral to the house for a long time. ” Jim Steinback – Northfield
