1926 Wauwatosa Bungalow Kitchen Remodel

28,935 Views
The owners of this charming 1926 bungalow felt their kitchen was small, drab and poorly functioning. Primary objectives were to stay within the existing kitchen footprint, introduce efficiency in storage, flexibility in use and accommodate modern appliances without overpowering the space. With a blank canvas, the kitchen’s new counter-depth Sub-Zero refrigerator, Electrolux double wall ovens, Wolf gas cooktop and Asko dishwasher were situated to maximize every square inch of counter space for flexible use and food preparation. A drop zone was created to the left of the refrigerator adjacent to the rear entrance. The countertop slides past the cabinetry to the right of the wall ovens for a coffee maker cubby.
A view of the custom cherry cabinetry with Blue Lagos Caeserstone Quartz counter and table tops, Blanco Diamond Silgranit single bowl under mount sink with custom cutting board and colander, Kohler Forte kitchen pull-out faucet and reverse osmosis faucet. Recessed task lighting, stylized Hubbardton Forge pendant lighting and Xenon under-cabinetry lights wash the kitchen surfaces and provide illumination options.
A view of the Wolf gas cooktop and Vent-A-Hood Professional Series range hood for proper indoor air quality. The 1" x 2" Sonoma tile marble mosaic backsplash tile reinforces the corresponding timeless beauty with the Sonoma Tile Tantrum crackled glass tile supports the requested eclectic contrast, and complemented by the Sydney pewter pencil trim and quartz countertop.
1" x 4" Del Conca Grigio porcelain mosaic tile details seamlessly with the oversized floor tile at the door thresholds and transitions nicely to the existing flush hardwood flooring.
Rev-A-Shelf Blind Corner Optimizer insert with chrome rails.
A view of the spacious traffic flow from the rear entry with matching finishes and continuation into the formal dining room. A Rogar Estate brushed stainless steel wine rack on the exterior wall provides the storage solution for the owner's entertainment needs.
The kitchen wall was opened up behind the drawers allowing for more storage space!

    Really enjoying your posts! I'd love to see a before picture - nothing like a before to add to the 'wow' factor, right?

    BEAUTIFUL! I love that threshold of the mini tiles that ties wood to tile. This can also be used to tie different shades of wood that are put down at different times...just use something that coordinates with the woods. This is what we did with real wood in our formal areas and laminate (waterproof) in the kitchen!

      @Jeanette S very cool idea! Integrating a new addition or flooring can be difficult with older homes but the end results can be great if done right.
