The Right Choice By Design
The Kitchen Ideas Center team is composed of active members of NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry). We are constantly fueled to be leaders in our industry. Our three staff designers — Rick Hoekstra, Chuck Weidenbach, and Brian Fisher — have dozens of years of combined design experience, with all three receiving awards of excellence for their work.
Rick Hoekstra — Owner, Sales, Design, and Project Management
Rick is the president and owner of Kitchen Ideas Center, as well as Lost Finish, Inc. since 1979. Having been involved with several notable projects including the renovation of the Wisconsin state capitol, and the preservation of the Frank Lloyd Wright Pew House, Rick has also helped thousands of residential clients in and around the Dane County area to achieve beautiful new kitchens, baths, closets (and more) in their homes. Rick’s approach to each project is unique to each homeowner, and each homeowner’s vision for their home. How can Rick help you to design the project of your dreams?
Chuck Weidenbach – Sales, Design, and Project Management
A member of the Kitchen Ideas Center team since 1998, Chuck’s clients appreciate his approach of deliberate balance between the pretty and the practical, with a generous helping of fun mixed in. By asking the questions that are crucial to understanding your particular goals and needs, Chuck takes great care to create the unique cabinet and countertop solutions that enhance your home for you and your family. Do you want something that will stand the test of time? What are the best answers for you? Chuck can help!
Brian Fisher – Sales, Design, and Project Management
Brian brings a degree in architectural design and 17 years of “in the field” trades experience to Kitchen Ideas Center. With experiences ranging from drafting and designing the project, from digging the first hole in the ground, to hanging the final picture on the wall, he uses that well-earned knowledge in his design practices and project execution. Knowing when and where helps Brian coordinate with the homeowner and the general contractor to ensure the project runs as smooth as possible. How can Brian help you to move forward, and make your dreams into your reality?
