Three Brookfield Homes to be Part of 13th Annual Milwaukee/NARI Spring Home Improvement Showcase

April 17, 2012

Southeastern Wisconsin residents will have an opportunity to “Explore Remodeling’s Finest” at the 13th annual Milwaukee/NARI Spring Home Improvement Showcase...A Tour of Remodeled Homes, Sat., May 19 – Sun., May 20, 2012, from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily.

The Spring Showcase is produced by the Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council, Inc., and sponsored by Eagle/Andersen Windows in conjunction with Weather-Tek Design Center and by Kohler Co. in conjunction with First Supply. The event will allow attendees to view 23 recently completed remodeling and home improvement projects from Milwaukee/NARI contractors at homes throughout southeastern Wisconsin.

The Showcase will feature the following Brookfield renovation projects:

Dimension Design, Build, Remodel, Inc.: Kitchen Addition • 17945 Wessex Dr., Brookfield
The project goals were to update and increase the kitchen’s footprint, create a walk-in pantry, develop a more functional “drop zone” from the garage entrance into the kitchen, and enlarge an existing adjacent half-bath. The back of the house was bumped out with a shed dormer addition. The new mudroom entry from the garage created the desired “drop zone,” while the new walk in pantry provided the ability to organize their daily cooking detail. A central kitchen island offers functionality and provides an opportunity to socialize with the cook, plus offer an informal eating area. Materials used consisted of custom cabinets, a tile backsplash, wood flooring, granite countertops, and stainless fixtures, with tile flooring in the mudroom and half-bath.

Kowalske Kitchen & Bath: Kitchen Remodel • 2020 Kathlynn Ct., Brookfield
The second story bathroom remodel transformed a 1970’s style master bath into a functional space with a timeless look. The existing shower was enlarged and enhanced to include custom niches and a bench, with slate tiles and a brushed nickel Kohler shower system. In-floor heat was installed underneath the slate floor and granite steps with slate accents were installed leading to the new Jacuzzi. The tub area was finished with handcrafted columns and molding details. Custom his and her maple vanities, granite tops, vessel sinks, and satin nickel Kohler fixtures complete the space.

Owner Assisted Remodeling: Kitchen Remodel • 3660 Shadybrook Ln., Brookfield
Taking advantage of Owner Assisted Remodeling’s option of doing some of the work themselves, the homeowners performed their own demolition of cabinetry, countertops, drywall, millwork, and flooring. Opening the doorway between the larger kitchen and formal living room created a music room that now houses a baby grand piano. With the increased space, a cooking island featuring an island with an induction range was installed. Stained and glazed custom cabinetry was added, plus granite countertops and stainless steel appliances were installed. The furniture style cabinetry and an apron front sink adds charm to the space.

An added attraction for the 2012 Spring Showcase is an opportunity to win a bathroom makeover from the Kohler Co., which will include a Tresham toilet and 24-inch pedestal sink along with a Kelston widespread faucet and toilet tissue holder, a value of more than $1,000. Patrons that visit at least six of the project locations will be eligible to register to win the prize package.

Spring Home Improvement Showcase admission is $4 in advance, and $7 at the door of the projects. Starting Tues, May 1, through Fri., May 18, advance tickets can be purchased between 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at the Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council office, 11815 W. Dearbourn Ave. in Wauwatosa.

Attendees that bring two, non-perishable food items to the door of the first project they visit will receive a $2 admission discount, with the food items to be donated to Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin (formerly America’s Second Harvest of Wisconsin).
