The family had lived with an outdated home for twenty years. Now the kids were grown, and gone. The couple wanted some help. She asked us if we could do a kitchen remodel so that it was brighter, and had a more open-concept design into the dining room, and family room. “The prior owner never met a wallpaper she didn’t like. It’s gotta go,” she said. As most kitchen designs are, this was a busy one. It’s the most important room in the house, but there was very poor traffic flow.
After this kitchen renovation, this couple now has a bright, open kitchen in which they can prepare meals, and spend family time together, without collisions. They can entertain people. This all can even be done without having to look at outdated wallpaper.
A Traditional Kitchen
Spice Rack Pull-Out
A Traditional KitchenThe 70's never left this Waukesha home's kitchen design. Now the raised panel cabinets and classic hardware give this traditional kitchen a beautiful look. But the worst? The space was too cramped for more than one person, the dishwasher door blocked access to the sink and collided with the range door, and the wallpaper - well - let's just say it had served its time. © David Bader Photography
Kitchen IslandConverting the peninsula into an island created a more open concept and improved flow for this kitchen located in a home in Waukesha. The dishwasher door in this kitchen remodel no longer blocks the sink! © David Bader Photography
Spice Rack Pull-OutCounter space and cabinet space were lacking, making the space feel crowded. In this kitchen renovation located in Waukesha, space was added through more lower cabinets in the island, as well as in creative storage solutions like this spice rack pull-out.
