Sure, you've got color, texture, furnishings and lighting to worry about when creating the perfect style for your space. Have you considered, however, using doors as design accents? Whether interior or exterior, a door may be just the "pop" of uniqueness you need to complete the look of a room.
We are very excited to announce the addition of an in-house interior and exterior painting services division here at Schloegel Design Remodel! Painting is a huge part of every job, and when done correctly, enhances everything from the installation of the drywall to the trim on the walls.
When it comes to exterior doors, function, security and style are all important. Learn from Property Solutions Manager Charlie Schloegel and Todd Havermann of Kansas City Millwork Co. as they walk you through some of today's exterior door options.

Induction stovetops may not be in every kitchen yet, but they come with serious benefits. Designer Gayle Jagoda breaks down how induction cooking works, as well as the advantages to taking the heat out of the kitchen.
How It Works
Induction cooking is very powerful at heating compared to gas and electric coils, Gayle explained.
There are a million different reasons to redesign a space. We recently read a blog that reminded us of one of the most common reasons: functionality. Does a wall in your home just not make sense to you? Or maybe a closet could be better placed somewhere else to open up a room.
We have an old house, pre-1800's. We live in MA. We have a room above our kitchen that is equivalent to an attic I guess you could say. The room currently has no heat, has two windows, and is adjacent to a finished room that is heated. No insulation between the lower kitchen or adjacent room.
On March 31st, we will be having three teams redesign the same bathroom and competing for bragging rights. We’ll judge all three designs and announce the winner at an America Idol-like event to be held at our showroom on March 31st. Check back for photos!
Employees here at Schloegel all contribute more than just the work they do in the office or out in the field. We really value philanthropy and community involvement, and here's a great example of how we do that. Designer Gayle Jagoda has a few words about some volunteer work she's recently started:
Last Thursday I started my volunteer work at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City.
Donna Kirsopp, a design consultant for SDR, has a history in her field.
“My father was a home builder, remodeler and wood worker. I developed an interest at a young age while building houses of Lincoln Logs and wooden boats in my dad’s garage. My father always had a project and he didn’t discourage my interest in it.
