(NARI winner) This Bathroom Remodel Keeps the Original Layout, While Updates Add Some Va-voom!

For this hall bathroom remodel, we kept the original layout, but converted the tub to a walk-in shower. Notice the epoxy coating on the walls and floor in the before picture, and the interesting pieces of cut stone within this coating!

The new timeless bathroom now features Carrerra marble, always a classic, throughout, from the herringbone floor tile to the 3" x 6" wainscot and shower wall tile.

Another example of the talent in our team

When the Church of the Nativity called on Schloegel Design Remodel to construct a tabernacle for them, we were up for the challenge.  Standing next to the new tabernacle is Gabe Chiu, one of our talented lead carpenters.

Gabe designed and built the tabernacle using quarter sawn oak to tie into the other wood present in the church.

Lower Level Living

Back in April, we did a post entitled Wood Work in which one of our Lead Carpenters, Gabe Chiu, was shown working on a current remodel project. We are pleased to let you know that the project is done and the bar area is complete!

You can see how the beams that Gabe was working on are incorporated into the final space.

Historical Hyde Park Project Before

We are really excited to be starting a project in historical Hyde Park.  This wonderful duplex was built in 1921, and still posses many of the beautiful, unique qualities found in buildings built during that era.  The generous moldings, doors and trim are original.

A troubled tub

In this before picture, you can see a really dated jetted tub. This tub was never used because the first time it was turned on the water turned black from the residual that was in the jets—YUCK! The white tile tub deck and backsplash, as well as the polished brass hardware (that has oxidized), makes this tub replacement a must.
