Renovation Reveals Kitchen’s True Potential
“Sometimes it’s difficult for people to see what can be done with their spaces,” says the designer, who works collaboratively with the firm’s production staff, project managers, carpenters, laborers and subcontractors.
“They may only think in terms of moving a sofa or adding a vase. But we can see exactly what needs to be done. In this case, the existing cabinets were dated and were starting to show wear, so we decided together on a full remodel. Although complicated, the renovation would allow the homeowners to enjoy the improved functionality for day-to-day living as well as entertaining and hosting family and friends.”
The goal of this New Berlin, WI remodel was to open the kitchen to the living room and create a luxurious entertaining space. This kitchen is eclectic with earthy texture and a bold contrast with black and white cabinets. Highlights of this kitchen include:
- Custom Cabinets – This kitchen is all custom with cabinets from MKE Cabinetry, including a pantry, pullouts, spice organizers and drawer organizers. The trash and recycling cabinet includes a paper towel dispenser. Appliance door panels on the refrigerator, dishwasher and ice maker create a seamless, finished look.
- Hidden Coffee Station – A wall of built-in cabinets is the perfect place to add a coffee/espresso station. The cabinet has pocket doors that slide into place so the cabinet can remain open during use. High end finishes include a porcelain countertop and backsplash and a luxe gold Brizo pot filler faucet.
- Workstation Sink – A Galley workstation sink faces the center of the room and allows the homeowners to stay part of the conversation while chopping, rinsing and cleaning at the sink.
- Glass Cabinet Over the Range – The Zline range has a downdraft vent, so the cabinet over the range mimics a hood. With the backsplash continuing behind the cabinet, it’s perfect for displaying décor.
- Oversized Pendants – Lighting can be the centerpiece of a kitchen. We love how these pendants make a big statement and create the center of attention on the kitchen island.
