A young couple, who live in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin’s Quarry Heights neighborhood, contacted us to remodel their 1953 kitchen. They disliked that their galley kitchen was closed off to the rest of the home. Also, the old floor plan didn’t maximize the entire space. They wanted to update the oak cabinets and laminate counters to a bright, white contemporary space.
As the design-build remodel company, Kowalske Kitchen & Bath transformed this kitchen. We widened the doorway from the kitchen into the dining room for better entertaining and openness. We moved the refrigerator to the back wall to make way for more cabinetry, storage and counter space.
This cramped kitchen is now bright with white shaker cabinetry and quartz counters. The highlight of the space is the gray-blue hexagon tiled wall. Adding a tiled accent wall is a popular kitchen trend and a great way to add color and texture in a kitchen. The floating wood shelves were custom made by MKE Cabinetry. Satin bronze finishes (hardware, lighting and faucet) complete the look.
