1930s Wauwatosa Kitchen Featured by Milwaukee Magazine

Our Wauwatosa kitchen remodel is featured in Milwaukee Magazine!

Kowalske Kitchen & Bath designer Christina Kolb was interviewed about this 1930s kitchen.

The kitchen was small and closed off by a warren of rooms and hallways. The goal was to create a space where the family could bake and cook together. We reconfigured the layout for a more open and efficient footprint. They now have space at the island for rolling out cookie dough and double ovens.

The homeowners loved the modern farmhouse aesthetic, so we needed to find a way to incorporate elements into their traditional home. The new kitchen design is timeless and fits the charm of their 1930s colonial home with white shaker cabinetry, a farmhouse sink and traditional woodwork. It features a maple hood as a focal point, high-end appliances and an appliance garage. If trends change in the future, the contemporary matte black finishes (lighting, hardware and faucet) can be easily changed out.

“White Shaker-style cabinetry and a subway-tile backsplash honor the home’s architectural roots. To help the kitchen appear timeless, the couple opted for maple on the range hood, island and flooring.”
