Traditional Meets Modern, An Award-Winning Home Renovation – Week 3

This is week 3 of the Traditional Meets Modern Home Renovation Series. Just in case you missed it, here’s Week 1 and Week 2. We’re going to share the amazing transformation of the foyer and dining room in this home renovation, this week.
Foyer
As we had mentioned before the floorplan in the home renovation remained essentially the same with a few modifications.

Home Interior Design Display Ideas

Forget the dusty china cabinet at your grandmother's house. With help from Schloegel Design Remodel Designer Megan Bringman, displaying all the serving ware, books and knick knacks you've collected over the years has never looked better.

Custom Wall Art

Whether it's an oversized antique vase or a saxophone you played throughout college, we all have that one item that doesn't make sense anywhere.

Cabinet Woes

Jake,

Just finished a kitchen remodel, only to find the kitchen designer designed us a flaw. Our top cabinet next to the stove will open to a 90 degree angle but in doing so hits the corner of the stove fan cover. In time I can see the cabinet door ending up with a nice gouge right in the middle of the door.

And The Winners Are…

Our carpenter, Tom, just completed framing out a chalkboard space in this new basement playroom for our clients Katie (6) and Sam (4).  We applied black chalkboard paint inside the frame.  The winning colors for the playroom space have been carefully selected and are Benjamin Moore’s “Rosy Blush” (top left) and “Clearest Ocean Blue” (bottom right).  We divided the room in half just to be fair!

Here's a before and after look at Katie and Sam's basement playroom.

What Are My Options for Removing Leveling Compound?

Jake,

We uncovered pine flooring in our 1859 built house it was covered with carpet and ply wood which we removed to find leveling compound. Is there any way to remove the compound short of just scraping with putty knife?

Tom,

I don’t know of any other way of removing leveling compound other than with a chisel and a hammer.

More Remodeling Fun from the Past: 1950s Design vs Now

We are having fun with the remodeling and decorating book from 1954!!

In this blog we are showing two “cellar” remodels that were high style in 1954 and one that Schloegel Design Remodel completed in 2010.

Do you think things have changed much?

A Year in Review with Schloegel Design Remodel

This past year was one of the most exciting ones that we have ever had.  We loved being apart of all the new

design trends, remodeling advancements, and new home improvements.  The design world sure is advancing, as commented on by a few of the posts this past year.

Wow what a dramatic bathroom makeover from Schloegel's One Week Bath!  The old pink tile and pedestal sink came out in this bedroom bath and was replaced with classic white subway tile and a furniture style cabinet with Carrera marble top.
