Regretting your design? Consider remodeling.

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.

A new chapter for this restored tabletop

Homeowners Don and Sally Goldenbaum are thrilled with the outcome of their restored table top, which is now an island counter top.

Sally Goldenbaum, who lives in Prairie Village, is a published author with a series of books about the Seaside knitters.

A Message from Jake Schloegel

One of the best parts of my job is visiting a completed project a few months after we have finished.  The homeowners have been enjoying their newly remodeled space and are usually eager to have us take some photos of it so we can post them on our web site.

The Importance of a Well-Organized Closet

Over the years Schloegel Design Remodel has been involved in several closet makeovers.  As wardrobes expand the organization of a closet becomes critical.  One needs to look no further than this photo.

To protect the privacy of the owner of these feet, she is an office manager of a local design/remodel company, I will not mention her name.

Soffit Solutions

Hi Jake,

I have a soffit in my kitchen that I would like to remove to place 42 inch cabinets. I have an old home built in the 30's that has plaster walls. I removed the soffit wall so that I could also add insulation, but I found two pipes that come out about 4 inches from the wall.
