Jennifer & Dave Hagen, Oconomowoc, WI- Winners of JP's Ugly Kitchen Contest!

Oconomowoc family wins $7,000 kitchen makeover from JP Kitchen Studio!

Dave and Jennifer Hagen were surprised to get the call. “This is the first thing I’ve ever won,” said Jennifer. Now they're proud owners of a brand-new kitchen.

The Hagens entered the “Lake Country’s Ugliest Kitchen Contest” in April, 2006. The contest was created by JP Kitchen Studio to help celebrate their Grand Opening on April 7, 2006. “We wanted to come up with a fun way to introduce our business to the Lake Country area,” said owner Laurie Peirick. “Once we started promoting the contest, we received almost 40 entries.”

Homeowners were asked to drop a photo of their “ugly” kitchen by the new studio, or send a photo via the website. A panel of local judges helped to choose the Hagens' kitchen as the winning kitchen. The judges were Gina Magnus of Oconomowoc, Susan Smith of Local Color, Dan Karas of Hallmark Building Supplies and Kent Johnson, Architect.

Dave Hagen grew up in their Oconomowoc home, so he had been living with that kitchen for, “as long as I can remember!” Dave, Jennifer, and baby Jack are now enjoying their bright new kitchen.

The Hagens' received a kitchen makeover worth more than $7000, including Corian countertops, Bertch Marketplace cabinets and hardware, $250 of paint from Sherwin Williams, and a new Corian sink.

JP Kitchen Studio donated all design services and installations, sent the Hagens' to dinner at Rosati’s and all the suppliers gave deep DISCOUNTS. The homeowners installed their own ceramic tile flooring, added attractive new light fixtures and bought new stainless steel appliances.

John & Maureen Kuglitch, Hartland, WI-Amazing Master Bathroom Transformation!

For many people, the thought of how to turn a dream into reality may seem daunting, but when you visit the team at JP Kitchen Studio, you quickly realize that their approach is different. Laurie Peirick, the co-owner, made the Kuglitsch family's spa-bath dream come to life in this amazing master bath transformation.

With over 16 years of designing kitchens and baths with efficient function and superb style, Laurie gets to know you and your family’s unique personality. John and Maureen Kuglitsch selected custom, cherry-furniture-style cabinetry, Ubatuba Gold granite counters and tiled tub surround, travertine tile floor and shower surround, and the piece de resistance were the exquisite depression green style vessel lavs.

Recently, the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) recognized Laurie’s design expertise. The prestigious award acknowledges Laurie’s talent in planning safe, functional, personalized spaces, which incorporate imaginative design statements and aesthetically pleasing solutions within NKBA guidelines. Most importantly, the Kuglitschs’ couldn’t be happier with their new, personalized retreat! The Kuglitschs', by far, have the prettiest bath in the neighborhood. Fill up the tub and relax!

Scott and Wendy Page, Oconomowoc, WI - Kitchen Remodel 

The Page’s came to JP Kitchen Studio for an update. Even though they had white cabinets, the counters and backsplashes were very dark, and the one light fixture in the middle of the room didn’t give adequate light. Since Wendy is a gardener and loves to can vegetables in the summer, this kitchen needed to work hard.

Wendy chose Legacy oak toffee cabinets in a timeless Shaker style with simple, but large crown molding, granite counters, and a travertine tile backsplash with accents of black granite. A communication center was added to house a small TV, radio, and phone near the table. The floors were also refinished and provided a warm backdrop to the updated cabinets and countertops. Now this kitchen is a joy to cook in. “Wendy…what time is dinner?"
