Luxurious Lake Home Remodel

Gold Award

remodeling award wisconsin

$250,001 – $500,000

An Oconomowoc couple nearing retirement contacted us to refresh their lake home for better entertaining family and friends. The casual lake living design flows throughout, with navy hues, gold hardware, detailed woodwork, shiplap and beautiful tile. The kitchen was opened and enhanced with a large island and beverage station. The guest bath was remodeled to look like an outdoor shower, yet treats guests to a dual showerhead and heated floors. An old closet was converted into a nautical-themed powder bath. The master suite was overhauled with a pretty tiled fireplace, oversized shower and clawfoot tub overlooking the lake.

Accessible Master Bathroom Remodel

Gold Award

remodeling award wisconsin

The goal of this Waukesha master bathroom remodel was to use universal design principles to accommodate a homeowner who uses a wheelchair. The old bathroom was narrow and the client couldn’t maneuver her wheelchair. We expanded the bathroom size by taking space from an adjacent closet. The layout was reconfigured for a bigger zero entry shower, 5-foot turning radius, floating vanity and custom linen cabinet. Materials were carefully selected in the shower, including non-slip tile, decorative grab bars and a universal design handheld showerhead. Other features of this beautiful bathroom include a backlit mirror, heated floors and comfort height bidet toilet.

Black & White Contemporary Kitchen

Gold Award

remodeling award wisconsin

$100,001 – $150,000

A small 1940s Wauwatosa kitchen with oak cabinets didn’t fit the young homeowners’ style. They wanted a sleek, contemporary kitchen that maximized the space. We reconfigured the layout and widened the doorway into the dining room. The new window backsplash floods the kitchen with sunlight. A stunning accent wall features hickory shelves and glossy black stacked tile. A mirrored toe kick on the island creates an illusion that the flooring continues underneath, making the space feel bigger. An empty corner was converted into a cozy breakfast nook. Custom cabinetry with storage organizers, new lighting, and a workstation sink add functionality.

Family Friendly Kitchen

Gold Award

$60,001 – $100,000

A 1940s Wauwatosa kitchen was cramped and the couple had difficulty cooking together. They needed a better layout, more storage, and a seating area where their children could do homework. By removing the dining room wall and relocating a basement door, we created a functional, family-friendly space. The homeowners have an eclectic taste, loving elements of traditional and modern design. We chose shaker cabinets, hardwood floors and schoolhouse lighting. Modern elements include hexagon backsplash tile and navy lower cabinets with brushed gold hardware. More storage was added with a pantry, desk area, drawer organizers and rollouts.
