Bartelt Wins 2016 MBA Achievement Award

Elm Grove Kitchen RemodelOn Friday, September 30, 2016, Bartelt took home a MBA Achievement Award in the Best Remodeling Project $250,000+ category.

“We are honored to receive an Achievement Award,” said Rick Bartelt, owner. “This award is the result of the creativity, dedication, and expertise of our team, trade partners, and customers.”

Elm Grove Exterior RemodelThe winning Bartelt project was originally a 1850s barn and was converted to a home in 1938. With so much charm and history, the homeowners wanted to retain and enhance the home’s original character while accommodating their modern lifestyle. The two-story addition houses a new mudroom, kitchen expansion, hearth room, master suite, and attached garage with a bonus room. Throughout the addition, it was important to create a rustic, yet refined aesthetic. This was achieved with beams, board and batten siding, shakes, layers of lighting, exposed wood, and other selections that acknowledge the home’s barn past.

Recent Project: Modern, Eclectic Farmhouse Remodel

The 1970s colonial home was dated, compartmentalized, and stale. The homeowners wanted to update their home to accommodate their modern lifestyle and showcase their eclectic style.

The Exterior

Delafield Exterior Remodel Before

The exterior was nondescript, and the homeowners wanted it to be an expression of their style, something that had more character.

Delafield Exterior Remodel

The home was transformed into a modern, eclectic farmhouse. It features low maintenance LP Smartside siding (both horizontal lap and board and batten siding) and trim, a metal roof, fieldstone, and cedar columns and brackets. The wrap-around porch is welcoming, and the layers of lighting give the home a warm glow.

The Family Room

Delafield Fireplace Before

The existing fireplace was drab and cookie-cutter. The homeowners wanted a fireplace that could serve as the focal point of both the family room and kitchen.

Delafield Fireplace Remodel

The new fireplace is the centerpiece of the first floor. The Gold Mica fieldstone is rustic and warm, and the reclaimed farmhouse beam keeps the farm’s history alive.

Also, note the Dutch door to the right of the fireplace. This leads to the new library (discussed soon), and serves a few different functions. First, it is used as a “gate” for the homeowners’ three dogs. The Dutch door also gives the room flexibility – it can be somewhat open to other spaces, or it can be closed completely for more privacy when reading or watching a movie.

The Kitchen

Delafield Kitchen Remodel Before

The existing kitchen, dinette, and dining room were dated, cramped, and lacking personality. They were also closed off from the family room.

Delafield Kitchen Remodel

The new kitchen expanded into the unused dining room and is open to other entertaining areas. It features custom quarter-sawn oak cabinetry, green soapstone and granite tops, a subway tile backsplash, and a painted island with seating. The island’s two levels offer space for food prep and seating, and the open design accommodates the natural flow between appliances, storage, and food prep areas.

The Butler’s Pantry

Delafield Butler's Pantry

The new walk-in pantry uses a portion of the old dinette space. The butler’s pantry not only offers extra storage and counter space, but it tells a story about the family’s past. The sliding barn door was reclaimed from the family’s early 1900s barn, and the pantry cabinetry came from the family farmhouse. These details add historical charm to the home.

The Library

Delafield Library Remodel Before

The three-season room was a catchall and was not practical for year-round use. It was also dated and unsightly.

Delafield Library Remodel

Now, the homeowners can comfortably use the new library year-round. It features a wall of built-in bookshelves that serves as a focal point and showcases the homeowners’ books and treasures from their travels. The shelves also complement the homeowners’ Stickley furniture. The exposed wood ceiling uses wood harvested from an oak tree that had fallen on the family farm years ago – another story to tell.

The Screen Porch

Delafield Screen Porch

The new screen porch is accessible from the family room/kitchen area, the patio, and the porch. It is a great spot to enjoy the home’s scenic backdrop, and it helps blur the line between indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces. The ceiling draws visitors’ attention up and adds texture to the space, with exposed rafters and tongue and groove roof boards.

Recent Project: Lake Home Remodel

The homeowners wanted to update their first floor to accommodate entertaining and daily living while taking advantage of the lake views.  The remodeled spaces enhance the home’s original charm and offer an open floor plan.

Oconomowoc Kitchen Remodel Before

Oconomowoc Kitchen Remodel After

The original kitchen was dark and dated, with little work space.  The remodeled kitchen features painted and glazed custom cabinetry, granite countertops, high-end appliances, and ample storage and counter space.  The large island accommodates casual meals and entertaining, and its contrasting color adds interest to the space.

Oconomowoc Wet Bar Before      Oconomowoc Wet Bar After

Neighboring the kitchen was the cramped wet bar area.  Now, the wet bar serves as an entertaining hub, having a direct connection to the kitchen, dining room, and family room.  It also features a coved ceiling to complement existing details.

Oconomowoc Sunroom Remodel Before

The back of the home was closed off to the lake views.  The homeowners wanted to improve the sight lines, so they could enjoy their backdrop.  The remodel opened up the back wall of the home to showcase their views and create space for a screened-in porch.  Heated floors allow the homeowners to enjoy the space into the fall months.

The (Kitchen) Island Life

As today’s kitchens become more connected to other living and entertaining spaces, the island becomes more versatile and serves as a hub – meal prep, seating, storage, entertaining, homework. The island is a customizable piece, so when you’re planning its composition, it’s important to think about the role you need it to fulfill and how you primarily use the kitchen. Do you have a large family? Are you often the host? Do you love to cook? These are all important questions to consider.

StorageHartland Kitchen Remodel

The island is a great spot to insert extra storage. Whether it’s a spice drawer, roll-outs for everyday dishes, or open shelves for cookbooks, there are many ways to make your kitchen island work beyond meal prep and seating.

Size

The dimensions of your island are shaped by its role in the kitchen. If you’re looking for counter space and enough seating for the family, you may want to consider an extra-long island or an actual table attached to the island. Maybe you plan to use the island for meal prep and a party buffet. A wide island might be the perfect option. It’s also important to consider its height. A 36-inch height can accommodate meal prep and seating. A 42-inch height is ideal for bar stools. The island can also be designed with two levels, so it can work “double duty” – cooking and dining. This also breaks down the scale of the island and gives some separation to obscure cooking messes from view.

Waukesha Kitchen RemodelLighting

Proper lighting over the island is essential. Pendants or a chandelier offer ambient and task lighting to help with smaller kitchen duties and overall illumination. The lighting over your island is also an opportunity to get creative and showcase your style. Glass pendants, lanterns, drum pendants, multi-light fixtures – island lighting can set the tone for your space, add a punch of color, or reinforce the kitchen design.

Utility

As we’ve said, the kitchen island is flexible, so outfit it with the tools you need for your various tasks. Entertainers may want to consider a beverage or wine refrigerator. Others choose to include a microwave drawer or dishwasher in the island. Home cooks often prefer a prep sink in the island because it’s easily accessible, accommodates cooking and clean-up simultaneously, and makes sharing the space with another cook easier.

DetailsShorewood Kitchen Remodel

The island is an opportunity to add character to the kitchen. Consider a contrasting stain or paint color to make it a focal point and highlight your style. Opt for furniture-style legs and toe kicks to create a high-end look. Choose a countertop material that suits your style and the island’s main role. Do you like marble’s classic look? Are you interested in granite’s durability? Perhaps, you’d prefer the warmth of a butcher block top? The options are truly endless!

Host a Soiree at Home

Create a space conducive to entertaining with these party essentials.

Many of our homeowners explain to us that they’re looking to create spaces that accommodate their love of entertaining, so we’ve compiled a brief list of design elements we thought were important for successful events.

LibationsWauwatosa Wet Bar

A beverage center, or wet bar, is the perfect addition to your entertaining space. Whether you use it as an extra prep area or a cocktail-mixing station, you can customize it to your style and needs. Include an extra sink. Outfit your wet bar with a beverage refrigerator. Add wine and stemware storage. The options are endless!

Room to Move

It’s fun to focus on the small details, but you should also consider the room’s layout. An open concept is helpful for hosting family and friends. When the various entertaining spaces, indoor and outdoor, are open and connected to one another, you’re still able to engage guests while cooking or mixing drinks. People can also move about freely.

(Kitchen) Island Fun

Hartland Kitchen IslandPeople tend to congregate in the kitchen, so an island is often essential if you plan to entertain. It can provide more workspace, so multiple chefs can concoct culinary masterpieces at one time. It’s a place to lean against, sit by, or set your drink on, and it allows the cook to socialize with guests while he or she works. It can also serve as your party’s buffet!

Mood Lighting

Pay attention to the lighting in your kitchen (and other entertaining spaces). Include task lighting, such as under-cabinet lighting, for food preparation. Pendants over the island and recessed lighting provide task and ambient lighting. It’s also a “bright idea” to put your fixtures on dimmers to create a softer glow when guests arrive.

A Place (or two) to Sit

Seating – by the island, at a table, as a built-in, or in an adjacent room – is important to consider. Although people will walk around mingling, most will eventually like to take a load off of their feet and relax. Each type of seating has pros and cons (i.e. a banquette can maximize space), so we suggest having multiple options if they make sense for the room.

Tunes

Music can set the mood for your gathering. Many systems let you listen to tunes throughout your home and outdoors, allowing you to change the volume in each space or control the entire system with the touch of a screen anywhere. You even have the option to listen to different songs in different rooms – jazz in the kitchen and rock in the lower level – or the same song in every room.

StorageAmple Kitchen Storage in Hartland

If you entertain regularly, you’ve probably started quite the collection of platters, linens, glasses, vases, and beyond. Make sure you have a place for everything. Consider cabinetry that extends to the ceiling, drawers in the island, a butler’s pantry, drawer and cabinet organizers, such as Rev-A-Shelf systems, and other organizational options.

Recent Project: Rustic First Floor Remodel

Our customers’ home was dated and compartmentalized. They wanted to create a layout conducive to entertaining and introduce a rustic aesthetic to complement their heavily wooded lot. To achieve this objective, we remodeled the entire first floor, removing walls and incorporating details throughout the home to create a cohesive design.

The Dining Room

Hartland Dining Room Remodel

In the dining room, we added an arched entryway to open it up to the kitchen. It also features a custom, distressed buffet cabinet, candle-style sconces with an iron strap detail, and an “orb” chandelier made of wood and iron.

The Kitchen

Hartland Kitchen Remodel

In the kitchen, a peninsula, soffits, and dark oak cabinetry were eliminated. The remodeled space features glazed birch cabinetry, ample storage, granite countertops with a leather texture, a slate backsplash, hand-scraped hickory floors, and a custom wrought iron chandelier. The island is the focal point with a butcher block, olive, crackle-finish base, and round walnut table. To achieve an open concept, a portion of the wall was removed between the dinette and family room. The area is encased in hand-scraped Douglas fir beams.

The Living Room

Hartland Family Room Remodel

The family room originally had a fieldstone fireplace and cedar beams on the ceiling. The mason applied a heavy coat of mortar to the fireplace, a technique reminiscent of old farmhouse walls, and the cedar beams were replaced with hand-scraped beams. The space also includes a wet bar with custom cabinetry, a hammered copper sink, and a Bronzo Quartzite countertop.

The Powder Room

Hartland Powder Room Remodel

The remodeled powder room features a custom vanity, Bronzo Quartzite countertop, and vessel sink made from a boulder. The wall mount faucet is set into mosaic tiles, and the room’s large slate tile floor matches the flooring used in the back hall and laundry room.
