traditional-styled kitchen of Dan and Lori Lorenz in the town of
Delafield is definitely a kitchen for a serious cook. The multiple
work stations and 9-foot by 6-foot granite island allow for the entire
family of six to assist with meal preparation. The beautiful dried
floral arrangement, which adds a nice touch to the spacious island,
was designed by Dana Meredith of the The Flower Garden in Hartland.
The fresh floral bouquet on the table was also created by The Flower

of Bill and Betsy Rezelís massive remodeling project included
doubling the size of their kitchen in their Waukesha home. The couple
decided it was time to change their 1970s Colonial home into a space
that was suitable for their tastes and needs. They called Renovators
Ltd. of Brookfield. Renovators moved a wall back 2 to 3 feet and
removed the dinette area. The changes allowed for a large island and
nice breakfast bar where the couple can watch TV as they eat. One of
the most important aspects for Betsy was the ability to move around
while working in the kitchen. The table settings and items on the
counter tops and island were provided by Katydids of Waukesha.
and Rachel Tegeder chose a warm, traditional look for their kitchen
when they built their home in Delafield. The Tegeders selected maple
cabinets from The Cabinet Place in Waukesha, where Rachel is a
designer and sales manager. Ivory Coast granite counter tops match the
sandalwood-colored cabinets, which are filled with accessories to aid
any busy cook.
Richard and Elaine Dix of Delafield decided to remodel their kitchen
it became a collaborative effort between JP Kitchen Design Studio of
Delafield and the Dixes, who own their own business, Dix Remodeling
and Design. "We really enjoyed working with JP Designs." The
couple designed the kitchen they wanted, and Laurie Peirick of JP
Kitchen Design Studio fine tuned the plans by helping with the
cabinets, etc. The first step was to flip the layout of the kitchen
from one side of the room to the other and install a large window in
order to take advantage of the view of Lapham Peak State Park.
"This is a real working
kitchen," Elaine explains, who is a personal chef for a family
member. The couple also entertain frequently so the layout of the
space was important.
