8 Fresh Wisconsin Kitchen Remodels
October 24, 2017
Feast your eyes on some of Wisconsin’s trendiest, most stylish kitchens.
If you’re a home cook, the kitchen is your workshop and escape. If you’re more on the consumption side of the eating equation, the kitchen is the social hub of your house, home to good smells, tasty cocktails, and the chatter of friends and family.
In other words, the kitchen is the most important room in your home—it’s essential that it’s stylish. Find inspiration and trends not in the glossy pages of a magazine, but right here in your home state. Explore our picks for Wisconsin’s best kitchens and then find out how Unison can help you remodel your kitchen with easy monthly loan payments.
1. Cabin Current
Albertsson Hansen Architecture, Ltd. added a bright, airy kitchen to this former fishing cottage in Western Wisconsin. The space effortlessly blends luxe touches (a statement chandelier, stainless steel appliances) with classic materials (hardwood flooring, shiplap wall coverings).
If bold, masculine, and traditional describe your taste, pin this DeLeers Construction, Inc. kitchen to your nearest idea board, stat. Caramel granite and a harmonizing tile backsplash bring light to silky chocolate hardwoods. Meanwhile, curvaceous, whimsical elements like the over-island light fixture balance the overall rich, cozy feel of the space.
This kitchen via Valley Cabinet in De Pere combines French café-style wrought iron and romantic lighting with colonial staples like shaker cabinetry, French doors with rectangular transoms, and exposed red brick.
4. Butler’s Pantry
For those who are happy with their current kitchen but need more space for prep or storage, a butler’s pantry is the project du jour. In this Door Country example, beaded panel cabinetry complements warm butcher block countertops inside a small alcove off the main kitchen.
5. Transitional Green
Love contemporary and traditional styles equally? Don’t worry—when you go transitional, you don’t have to choose. This Milwaukee kitchen unites mid-century elements like wide horizontal drawer pulls and amber-colored cabinetry with classic windows, flooring, and countertops, and traditional décor.
6. Edwardian Transitional
Like a master roux maker, the designers who crafted this kitchen melded early 20th-century styles with trendy finishes and modern luxuries. Stark black cabinetry gets a pop of sheen from brushed gold hardware and archetypal white subway tiles. Of course, the appliances are top-of-the-line and stainless steel, providing an attention-grabbing, mixed metals look.
7. Cabin Rustic
John Kraemer & Sons titled this project “Northern Wisconsin Bunk House”—a subdued name which undercuts the rustic grace of this space. In this wide galley kitchen, prep and entertaining areas blend seamlessly with farmhouse-industrial décor, featuring both distressed and finished hardwoods.
8. Mid-Century Modern
The last of our kitchen remodeling ideas is based out of Milwaukee, via Christensen Remodeling. In this Frank Lloyd Wright-esque kitchen, pale bamboo cabinetry, neutral colors, and clean lines are enlivened by a few pops of fresh, earthy color.
