Kowalske Kitchen & Bath transformed this 1940s Delafield cape cod on Nagawicka Lake into a stunning home. As the design-build contractor, we worked with the homeowner from the design stage through construction, ensuring every detail of the interior and exterior was perfect!

The goal was to restore the historic beauty of this home. Interior renovations included the kitchen, two full bathrooms, and cosmetic updates to the bedrooms and breezeway.

Kitchen Remodel

The center of this home is the incredible kitchen. The original space had soffits, outdated cabinets, laminate counters and was closed off from the dining room with a peninsula. We removed the peninsula and instead added an island with seating. The kitchen highlights include quartzite counters, a farmhouse sink, a subway tile backsplash, custom inset cabinets, mullion glass doors and beadboard wainscoting.

Main Level Bath & Upstairs Bath Remodel

The two full bathrooms are full of character – carrara marble basketweave flooring, beadboard, custom cabinetry, quartzite counters and custom lighting. The walk-in showers feature subway tile, Kohler fixtures and custom glass doors.

Exceptional Detail

The entire home is full of exceptional detail. We brought life back to the the original hardwood floors and staircase. We added glass interior door knobs, Victorian-inspired faucets from Kohler, three-panel doors, iron railings and traditional molding. The home features beautiful etched custom lighting and custom hardware.

Exterior Work

The exterior of the home was updated to give it an authentic European cottage feel. The garage has carriage style custom doors to match new trim and siding. We updated the exterior doors and added a set of french doors near the deck. Other updates included new front steps, decking, lannon stone pathway, custom lighting and ornate iron railings.

This Lake Country home will enjoyed by the family for many years.
