Open Family-Focused Kitchen- Green Lake, WI

This family kitchen takes center stage of this vacation spot dating back to the 1980s. This whole-home needed updates both aesthetically and functionally in order to truly utilize the expansive space. With the home being a year-round destination home in northern Wisconsin, strategic additions were thought out to accommodate the changing family needs.

The design team fell into place, with Janie Petkus of Janie Petkus Interiors, Cyrus Rivetna of Rivetna Architects, and Gail Drury of Drury Design all working together to design an inviting and luxurious destination for the entire family to gather all year round. Key design features addressed in this remodel included highlighting beautiful views of the Lake, brightening up the space, and modernizing the design to fit the needs of the family that loves to entertain

The home is filled with lots of adults and kids regularly and the kitchen needed to function well for multi cooks as well large family gatherings. Therefore multi-work areas and large expanses of countertop space for buffets were a must. These design ideas paired with lots of seating at the island and the oversized table gave enough room for everyone.

A multimetal hood with an antique patina was included to add an element of WOW to the space. A large multi-burner stove, two large sinks, two dishwashers, and three waste receptacles were strategically located in multiple locations so multiple family members could use the space simultaneously. An area off to the side in the family room that was designated as a desk area was multi-purposed to function as a buffet area for the large family dinners.

This beautiful family lakehouse now serves as both an inviting and luxurious destination for the entire family and guests to gather all year round!
