Kowalske Kitchen & Bath was hired by a young family in a suburb of Milwaukee in need of a kitchen renovation. Their home is nestled in a beautiful wooded area off the Root River Parkway. Although the footprint of the kitchen is large, the original layout was tight, cramped and dark.

The goal of the renovation was to create an open, functional kitchen that included additional storage, more counter space, and an island with seating. Kowalske Kitchen & Bath worked closely with the homeowners to make smart design choices. We created a space that is perfect for everyday cooking and entertaining.

The new kitchen is full of natural light and feels more open with the removal of the soffits and adding a 15-foot vaulted ceiling. An existing skylight in the laundry area now casts sunlight into the kitchen. The white cabinets provide plenty of storage and compliments the white quartz countertops, farmhouse sink and travertine backsplash.

A large island in front of the windows provides the family with an eat-in area overlooking the yard. We removed an old closet and replaced it with a dry bar and beverage refrigerator. The adjoining laundry area was refreshed with new flooring and paint to match the kitchen.

“We had an incredible experience with Kowalske. We felt like we were completely involved in the entire project and were never pushed toward doing something that was unnecessary or over the top. Everyone that we encountered working on our project was professional and courteous. This was the most clean job-site I could have ever imagined. This was a relatively large kitchen re-design. [Kowalske] nailed our vision and were the most organized company we have ever worked with. Without a doubt we will work with them in the future and I have recommended them to everyone I know.” – Scott, homeowner (GuildQuality review)
