Kitchen & Living Room Remodel | New Berlin, WI
The goal of this New Berlin, WI remodel was to open the kitchen to the living room and create a luxurious entertaining space. This kitchen is eclectic with earthy texture and a bold contrast with black and white cabinets.
Highlights of this New Berlin, WI Kitchen
- Open Concept Kitchen – A wall between the kitchen and living room was removed, allowing for better functionality and flow.
- Oversized Island – This kitchen is designed for entertaining, welcoming family and friends to grab a seat at the island. A floating cabinet behind the island provides additional storage space.
- Custom Cabinets – This kitchen is all custom with a pantry, pullouts, spice organizers and drawer organizers. The trash and recycling cabinet includes a paper towel dispenser. Appliance door panels on the refrigerator, dishwasher and ice maker create a seamless, finished look.
- Hidden Coffee Station – A wall of built-in cabinets is the perfect place to add a coffee/espresso station. The cabinet has pocket doors that slide into place so the cabinet can remain open during use. High end finishes include a porcelain countertop and backsplash and a luxe gold Brizo pot filler faucet.
- Workstation Sink – A Galley workstation sink faces the center of the room and allows the homeowners to stay part of the conversation while chopping, rinsing and cleaning at the sink.
- Glass Cabinet Over the Range – The Zline range has a downdraft vent, so the cabinet over the range mimics a hood. With the backsplash continuing behind the cabinet, it’s perfect for displaying décor.
- Oversized Pendants – Lighting can be the centerpiece of a kitchen. We love how these pendants make a big statement and create the center of attention on the kitchen island.
- Soapstone – Soapstone with green undertones and unique veining is used on the perimeter countertop and the face of the kitchen sink.
- Mixed Metals – This kitchen features mixed metals, including luxe gold, matte black, antique brass and stainless steel.
- Black & White Color Palette – The dark cabinets contrast the textured earthy backsplash and draw you into this luxurious kitchen.
- Fireplace & Built-In Cabinets – The living room fireplace wall was painted to match the kitchen. A new mantle, tile and hardware make the room feel fresh and contemporary.
