All of the cabinets / counter areas were replaced and the island relocated away from the new chef-style gas range, allowing a greater traffic pattern and eliminating any possible congestion between the cook station and the island prep area. The new refrigerator was built in. Floating shelves completed the new pantry wall cabinetry.
The new island includes a stainless steel Kohler farm-style sink and new touchless faucet with air switch to operate the disposal. A built-in microwave was added to the island
for easy access as well as the new dishwasher. The new stainless steel range hood
was picture framed with new white custom subway tile. The lighting was upgraded with recessed LED can lights, pendant lights at the island,and under-cabinet LED lights. The oak floor was repaired and refinished.
This beautiful single family home is now completely remodeled: a new kitchen that is as functional as it is beautiful, remodeled family room, 3 bathrooms, and adjacent rooms.
The kitchen remodel provided additional cabinets with crown molding to the ceiling.
A wood hood above the gas cook top adds elegance with a recessed tiled shelf for decoration and spices. The new large island provides two level seating. Also added was ample pantry storage, a message center for charging, and a mudroom bench.
New cabinetry at the fireplace, wet bar, and a TV area make this a perfect setting for entertaining. Also, new hand scraped flooring was installed throughout the first floor. The first floor bathroom has new tile walls and quartz countertops. The laundry room was also remodeled with a raised laundry sink to provide a continuous counter top.
The second floor remodeling included a redesigned Master Bath and updated hall bath. Also, two spacious vanity sinks and an additional closet were added. The second floor hall bath now has new bright finishes, and a Kohler Archer tub with tiled shower. This was a retrofit remodeling as fixtures remained in the same locations but the upgraded finishes make this a must see project!
This home went through many changes over several months. The sun porch began
the renovations. The walls were rebuilt to accommodate larger windows which include removable storms to allow full view to the surrounding conservancy. A tongue and groove ceiling and new tiled floor finished the room.
The next project was the lower level which included a new egress window to create an additional bedroom and a remodeled bathroom. A wet bar was added, all new flooring, lighting, and trims. The transformation included a custom-built open staircase to the new lower level living space.
After the basement was finished, renovations started on the kitchen and living spaces. A new 8’ patio door replaced an old bay window for more views to the outside. All new Holiday Kitchens cabinets, appliances, quartz countertops and honed marble backsplash were installed.
The first floor powder room was reconfigured and new cabinetry, countertop, lighting and fixtures complete the renovation.
All the renovations have a modern take on design with a focus on light and bringing the outside in. Subtle industrial touches paired with elegance is visible in many details.
The homeowners’ original kitchen of 30 years was finally updated with expanded storage space, counter area, and a kitchen work triangle that accommodates multiple cooks.
New cabinets with lots of drawer space enhance usability. Crema Persa granite countertops replace the old laminate. A tile backsplash with glass accents adds a hint of bling to bring together a new kitchen.
This Elm Grove couple also wanted to give their living room and sun room a facelift. Sustainable materials were used to create the warm and inviting places the homeowners’ wanted, while also keeping with the original history of the home. The living room facelift consisted of: removing a poorly placed and underused built-in bookcase, upgrading the flooring to maple, replacing the large wood-framed window, revamping the fireplace hearth and surround, adding recessed lighting, reconstructing the original plaster
The sunroom was upgraded with a new heated floor with porcelain tiles resembling terra cotta, new windows and a French door, and the room’s ceiling was also raised above eight feet, enhancing its open feel.
This 1937 home in Washington Highlands was incredibly charming but required numerous updates to modernize the space. It was important to keep the original character of the home in harmony with the new homeowners personal style.
To create an open kitchen, a hallway was removed and an efficient layout was integrated using materials that reflect the character of the home. Commercial grade appliances were installed highlighting the focal point – a custom copper island hood.
The powder room was fully remodeled with new fixtures, heated marble flooring, a marble accent wall and a recessed mirror with a custom walnut floating vanity. In the main bath, a double floating vanity, heated lavender marble flooring, and beautiful crackled smoke glass pendants makes a pleasing and relaxing space.
Upgrades throughout the home include automated lighting, blinds, locks, cameras, thermostats and audio/video. The kitchen and all bathrooms were topped off with premium lines of Kohler fixtures.
The existing garage had two single doors removed and a new 17’ wide door was added. The side-mounted garage door opener was installed to maximize ceiling height. The lower level had moisture issues that were proactively addressed. A laundry room was created, and a full bath was added. Future plans for the lower level have been prepared for the next remodel phase.
These homeowners wanted a “WOW” kitchen that they were proud to entertain in. The existing work triangle was inefficient because the cooktop was too far away from the sink and the bulky refrigerator blocked traffic flow in the middle of the room. The homeowners wanted a contemporary look with classic finishes that complimented the newly renovated spaces in their home.
In the new design, the cooktop was relocated closer to the sink area to provide a more efficient work triangle. The cooktop and decorative chimney hood with marble and stainless inset backsplash provide a stunning focal point in the room. The GE Monogram built in refrigerator was moved to the old cooktop wall, providing a better traffic flow through the space. GE Monogram appliances provide this avid cook with a chef style kitchen. Pantry closets were replaced with new pantry cabinets with rollout shelves for better functionality. The crisp, clean look of the custom Medallion Potters Mill cabinets, in White Icing, pop against the dark Pewter Maple hardwood floors. Chosen for its sophistication, the organic Cambria Brittanica countertops contrast the geometric design of the marble backsplash. The grey/taupe veins of the Cambria countertops compliment the soft wave pattern in the Canadel dinette chairs. Crystal dinette and pendants lights add “bling” to the space and provide a touch of sophistication. This kitchen has become a bright family-friendly space, with multiple focal features, to entertain family and friends.
Froze Design Build’s team worked hand-in-hand with the homeowners to convert their Fox Point residence into a place they are proud to call home.
The detailed renovation includes eclectic touches of color and inspired accents, interior structural framing and a cohesive design aesthetic. With a thorough design process to investigate all opportunities, the homeowners were excited to see the vision of a greater connection between gathering rooms including an enlarged and reorganized kitchen immersed with daylight and highlighted with a spacious island, a redefined first floor laundry room with ample work surface, the addition of mudroom lockers, an exclusive master bathroom with a separate makeup vanity, a guest bathroom upgrade, a beautiful fireplace and mantel, improved storage and additional upgrades throughout the first floor.
The freshly renovated home provides ample space for entertaining and large family gatherings, reflects the homeowner’s taste throughout the architectural palette and vastly improves how the homeowners live in their home.
The entire first floor of this family home was transformed into a bright, open and more functional space for the family to live and entertain in. One of two additions to the home allowed the kitchen’s layout to be remodeled and opened up to better flow between the adjoining dining and sunroom spaces. Custom painted cabinets, granite countertops and a large family sized island provide additional entertaining space and seating for this family. The kitchen and dining room flow into the adjoining den, where shiplap walls add depth and a new focal point to the space.
A second addition to the home created a mudroom that was large enough to allow these homeowners the space for a dog washing station for their beloved four-legged friend! The exterior of the first floor received all new siding, windows, and new entry way as well as a new stamped concrete entertaining area.
This Tudor style home has many of the original architectural elements throughout
the home though the kitchen was not one of them. A hall closet was removed to gain space inside the kitchen to open the floor plan and add an island. The refrigerator was relocated to old closet space and additional countertop space was added as a landing zone as you enter the room. The eating area was maintained but custom bench seating was added.
The main kitchen flows well with white cabinetry along the perimeter, a paneled hood, and appliances as well as a custom blue island. The matte white backsplash adds texture and contrast in a subtle way to the white cabinets and polished quartz countertop. The Tudor leaded glass casement windows are original with added brass screens.
This classic 1926 Colonial desperately needed a new kitchen, entertaining space and a mudroom to accommodate this growing family. An innovative design incorporated all the needs without an addition and allowed the charm found in this classic 1926 home to be renewed in 2019. With stunning cabinetry, quartz countertops, gorgeous polished nickel fixtures, sublime porcelain tile floors nestled against classic refinished hardwood, the end result is best summarized in the home owner’s words:
“Refined Renovations solved all our wish list items to maximize space and transform the house into what is truly our dream home.”
The kitchen and master bathroom of this magnificent 1920’s East Side home were renovated exemplifying the homeowner’s sense of colorful southern style, all while honoring the original character of the home and eliminating the tech device clutter.
The existing kitchen and adjacent closet were removed, creating a fresh and open layout. Although compact, modern amenities and elegant timeless finishes were incorporated. Beyond the quartzite countertops, a navy high gloss pantry cabinet, natural knurled brass hardware and leather banquette seating, there’s much more than meets the eye: the hydronic radiant in-floor heat, concealed media cabinet, and small mudroom area all add to the functionality of the space.
The master bathroom was completely gutted and remodeled, within its existing footprint, into an oasis of white marble. The space now features double vanities, a separate makeup vanity, and a curbless steam shower with dual heads, speakers and rain water tiles. A custom privacy partition was added alongside the toilet - allowing it to remain in its existing location - while creating the feeling of separation.
The master bedroom now has much needed built-in storage and bookshelves with an integrated radiator cabinet, and of course, hidden media components!
The first floor of this family home was more dated and compartmentalized than these home owner’s were looking for; so they decided to not only update the look and feel of their home but also remove walls to create the open concept home of their dreams. To produce this open concept design three half walls and two load bearing walls were removed from the home’s layout. This allowed for a new open entryway that flows into the kitchen as well as the family, living, and dining rooms. The previous wood burning stove was removed and replaced with a gas fireplace boasting a salvaged 100-year-old pine mantle. The kitchen’s peninsula was replaced with a large stained maple island, and new hickory cabinets topped with leathered granite countertops. New interior doors, woodwork, and exterior doors complete this home’s transformation.
The homeowners purchased this New Berlin ranch home for their retirement, knowing they would need to update it to match their lifestyle and improve functionality in most
of the rooms. They liked the overall layout and charm of their new home and were not looking to make major floor plan changes. They wanted consistent design elements to bring uniformity to the whole home.
The centerpiece of the project focused on redesigning the kitchen into an inviting space that flows with the rest of the home. This was accomplished by removing the wall to the family room, resulting in a relaxing, unified space. Creative, custom cabinet storage was added to maximize storage and efficiency.
The dining room features two tall corner storage cabinets with a built-in dry bar. The hall bath was updated with a custom vanity made from rustic alder with a matching mirror frame. The finished project is truly a warm and inviting home that meets the lifestyle needs and personality of the owners.
The homeowners were fortunate to find this 80 acre homestead within minutes of civilization. The kitchen and basement had been remodeled recently which made the rest of the home dated. In particular, the master suite had a lackluster bath and the family room had a beautiful, field stone fireplace but neither had views of the stunning estate. An addition was put onto the back of the home adding space for a larger master suite, family room, study, and a craft room. In addition, a full wraparound porch and lower level terrace were added.
If you could create a checklist of all the desired features of an active family’s home, this project covers them all! This 1960’s ranch home is located on a beautiful lot in New Berlin. However, to make it work today with an active, younger family and still be a “forever home,” several substantial changes were necessary.
A large family room and master suite addition with a full basement were added to the back of the home. By extending the basement floor of the addition 2’ deeper than the existing, it created a “taller” space. The addition placement allows the existing kitchen to be completely remodeled, expanding into the dining room, and opening into the new family room.
The new kitchen incorporates beautifully painted cabinets, stone tops, and a farm-style sink. The separate bar area provides an entertaining oasis while adding serving space for larger family gatherings. Dramatic black window frames, sashes, and millwork provide a striking contrast to the bright, warm walls while the 9’ ceilings and large windows flood the living space with natural light.
The master bath incorporates a separate shower and water closet room, with a comfortably sized space designed for a two-sink vanity and stone tops.
The conversion of a home office to a first-floor laundry and mudroom off the attached garage rounds out the final design detail that makes this home fit the homeowner’s daily dynamics.
