Epicurean delight
Foodies would be in heaven in these kitchens


This project was designed and completed for Ray and Becky Shelton of Colgate by Granite Surfaces International Inc. (GSI) and Artisan Kitchen & Bath Gallery of Wauwatosa. The dynamic kitchen boasts semi-custom cherry cabinets and beautiful granite countertops with a custom ogee edge treatment.

David and Jennifer Hindle of Delafield chose maple cabinetry, stainless steel and granite when they remodeled their kitchen. A desk area was replaced by the refrigerator, providing additional space in the room.

Wooden Thumb of Wauwatosa did the remodeling project.

The Weeges of Nashotah hired Carolyn Taylor of Heritage Carpet and Interiors of Hartland to redesign their kitchen when they decided to remodel their tri-level home. A partial wall was removed, opening up the space into the living room. Hardwood floors, dark granite countertops and cherry wood add warmth to the remodeled space.


When they built their home, located on the fifth hole of the Fairways of Woodside in the town of Lisbon, Jean and Dave Stanley chose to downsize their living space, except for the kitchen. To take advantage of their excellent view, the Stanleys built a large three-sided island, which provides plenty of prep area along with seating for five. The dining room table is placed next to 6-foot windows that capture the afternoon sun and beautiful sunsets. The Maharaja red walls and brown birch cabinets give the room a Tuscany feel. The tropical brown granite counter tops blend nicely with the earth-tone shades. "The way that our kitchen is designed is better for entertaining than our previous home," says Jean.
