Waunakee Remodeling Balances Modern Touches With Timeless Design

Waunakee Remodeling takes their customer service seriously. Originally started as a roofing and siding business, window replacements were a natural progression. And when customers asked if they’d consider doing interior remodeling projects, well, they just couldn’t say no. Today, they’ve become a full-service interior/exterior remodeling company.

“Customer satisfaction is of top importance to us and being able to create a boutique experience for them during their remodeling project is really our number-one goal,” explains marketing manager Courtney Maier. “As our company has grown, we’ve really honed in on the services our craftsmen do best.”

That’s why kitchen, bathroom and basement remodeling is their main focus today. And that works out just perfectly — because designer Teresa Smejkal reports that the most requested projects these days are kitchens, bathrooms and mudrooms.

So, should homeowners go with modern or timeless design?

Smejkal says cabinetry styles, flooring and fixtures will continually change with current trends in color and style — although neutrals will always be popular. And white is the most timeless, because it works with everything. In fact, with the popularity of modern farmhouse and midcentury modern styles, you’ll see a lot of black and white paired with wood tones.

So, how do you combine modern and timeless designs?

“Using timeless patterns and colors like stripes, florals and plaids, combined with neutrals and simple understated elements is a great way to achieve this,” says Smejkal. And although white subway tile is still very popular, she says when the house and personality of the clients warrant it, she’ll encourage them to have some fun with backsplash and cabinet color.

On a smaller scale, Smejkal suggests adding fun style elements with textiles — like with bathroom towels, chair cushions or artwork in the kitchen and pillows or throws in a living room.

What’s a top reason for people wanting to remodel?

The most common reason that homeowners cite for remodeling is lack of storage, says designer Teresa Smejkal. Depending on space, installing kitchen cabinets up to the ceiling and adding organizational inserts can be beneficial. And for bathrooms, taller linen cabinets — and having drawers rather than open cabinets — can improve both your storage and organization.
