Matthew Retzak

Viking Range, LLC, the leader in residential kitchen technology, has named Matt Retzak as the June Designer of Distinction. Matt Retzak is a kitchen designer at Bartelt. The Remodeling Resource located in Delafield, Wisconsin and is the sixth monthly winner in the 2017 Viking Kitchen Design Competition. Designers from around the United States are vying for the coveted honor to become the 2017 Viking Designer of the Year.

Matt describes the project below:

This kitchen’s layout is conducive to entertaining and doesn’t stray too far from the feel of the home’s existing details. The space features custom, raised panel birch cabinetry, travertine subway tile, Viking appliances, and granite countertops. It also has a two-level island, making it multi-purpose: one level for food prep and the other with seating for six.
