A family living in Lake Country, Wisconsin, wanted to turn their dated kitchen into an upscale space for daily living and entertaining. Kowalske Kitchen & Bath designed a space that is open, inviting and flows well with the rest of the home. The original kitchen had three main flaws – an awkward configuration, it didn’t match their contemporary style, and it was closed off to the living room.
To create an open space for the kitchen, dining room and living room, we removed a wall separating the spaces. Removing the wall made room for a large island. The island gives the family casual seating and features beautiful white Cambria Brittanicca quartz counters with grey veining. The counters pair well with the luxurious glass mosaic backsplash.
This kitchen has some amazing high-end features: a Kohler pot-filler faucet over the stove, a built-in Miele coffee machine, Jenn-Air appliances, and a Galley Ideal Workstation sink and faucet. Kitchen workstation sinks are a popular new kitchen trend that change the way people work in the kitchen.
New lighting makes this space shine. The space is lit with recessed cans, a beautiful George Kovacs chandelier, elegant Feiss pendants, under cabinet lighting and toe kick lighting. This is a perfect example of how we layer lights in a room, combining many types of light fixtures to create the right look.
The living room fireplace was updated with an unpolished mosaic porcelain tile and wood mantel. The bamboo wood floors throughout the first floor add warmth and tie the whole space together.
In addition to the kitchen, we remodeled the entire first floor of this house:
