River Hills, WI Project

River Hills Residential Interior Remodel

The Home

Built in 1994, this contemporary home is nestled on acreage with river frontage. Having lived in the home for a few years, our client decided their kitchen and adjacent spaces did not fit their lifestyle.  Our client desired a more open concept kitchen and living space better suited for hosting large gatherings.

Large load bearing columns and a portion of the wall were removed to create a wider opening from the kitchen into the sunroom.  A wall was removed to allow the kitchen to expand into the adjacent office.  The kitchen did not have direct access to the sunken family room.  Removing  base cabinets separating the two spaces improved sight lines, circulation, and connection to the family room.


Having opened the kitchen to the living room gave our client a clear view of their sunken family room, newly faced fireplace, and lighted floating shelves.  The white cabinetry, offset by gold hardware, and the Brazilian Koa flooring, creates visual movement from one space to another. 

By removing the wall, we were able to create a long black island with beautiful black Corian Quartz allowing ample seating for living and entertaining. This open space also gave our clients natural light and a view of the property.  

Innovative Methods

The client wanted to have a modern, open, yet private partition to separate the sunroom and the kitchen.

With some ingenuity, homework, and good trade connections, a commercial grade switchable privacy film was added to sliding glass panels. This gave the flexibility and stylish look the clients were looking for.   The film is controlled by a low voltage remote fab and a transformer. This frosted feature with the touch of a button is a wow spectacle for everyone that visits!

A Word From the Client

In all honesty the process was easier than we thought it would be. COR Improvements was very open to our suggestions and things we wanted and if they could make it happen, they did. We liked that if it was something they had never done before on a remodel they would research to make it happen. The company is very client focused and wants to make sure we are satisfied with each and every step of the process. We are more than satisfied with the outcome of the project. It is exactly what we envisioned and more. Everyone who has come to our home has loved the finishes and the quality of work that was done.
