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.

Count on these new Sub-zero columns

Here's a message from one of our Designers, Megan, about a new product from Sub-zero.

I visited Roth Distributing yesterday to take a look at the new Sub-zero columns that have just been introduced to their integrated refrigeration lineup. Currently, they are only available in a 27” width but will most likely be introducing additional sizes soon.

Galley Kitchen Designs

Jake,

I live in a small tudor home with a galley kitchen. I know it would be very expensive to add on (I also need new appliances) so just wanting to get some resources for ideas.

Thank you,

Barbara

Barbara,

We have some photos of galley kitchens on our web site.

Kitchen Remodeling in the 1950s vs Design Now

We are having fun with the Ladies Home Journal Book of Interior Decorating which was published 1954.  Gayle found this book while visiting her mother last month.  It is so interesting and so nostalgic to look at the styles and interior design advice from 56 years ago!

We thought it would be fun to share some pictures of what was then versus what is now.

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.
