From Drab to Fab! – Schloegel Best of 2015

2016 is almost here, so we thought we could take a moment to look back at some of our favorite projects of the past year. Join us as we revisit the best of 2015.

From Drab to Fab! Kitchen Remodel
When we first met our homeowners Brian and Jayne, they had been considering remodeling the kitchen in their 1960s home for about 5 years (ever since they had moved in). They had preliminary ideas from working with a previous designer, but became frustrated and postponed the project when the options they were presented with didn’t feel  quite right.

1960’s Home Remodeled to Enhance and Update its Original Personality

We recently completed a remodeling project in which we updated an entire home that was built in 1964.  This home had never been modernized since it was built, so it had a great personality reflective of the early 60’s.  Our goal was not to change the personality of the home, but to enhance its individuality through updating and enhancing.

Adding more receptacles

One of our designers went out to measure a home so she could start drawings for new concepts of the space. Although not unusual of a house build at this time, she noticed they had over 11’-6” of kitchen cabinetry with NO countertop receptacles. There is only one receptacle in the area, and it is off to the side at the light switch location.

Restoring a Kitchen Back to it’s Roots

We completed this kitchen and powder bathroom remodel last year in the Brookside area.   The new space features prefinished maple cabinetry with a rich sable stain that makes this space very warm and "Mince Gold" countertops were selected for their unusual veining and eye catching gold flecks.

How Do I Remove Soffits Above Kitchen Cabinets?

I am interested in removing the soffit in my kitchen. My first step was to drill a hole to look inside w/a flashlight, but when I tried to do this, I realized that the entire soffit is encased in solid wood w/drywall over it. Do you have any suggestions for removing it or design suggestions where I could use the existing soffit and turn it into storage.

Watch out for this up-and-comer!  Our design consultant, Megan Lynch, designed a kitchen worthy of the customer's kudos and two design awards.

Along with winning the Prestigious ‘Shiloh Design Awards’ contest, this beautiful kitchen also took first place at the 2010 NARI remodeler’s award show in Kansas city.

Now That’s Trustworthy!

When Anne and Michael Sheehan of Shawnee sought a design and remodel firm to make some major changes to their kitchen, they knew they needed a firm they could trust.  Anne’s doctor had advised her to move out of the home to avoid the dust and fumes that were inevitable in a job like this.

Historic Hyde Park Renovation – We’re Finished!

Here are some final pictures of the duplex remodel—we have not shown the finished kitchen on the second floor before.

We thought it would be fun to look at both kitchens side-by-side.  Both before pictures illustrate the strong need to remodel those kitchens.
