It’s hard to believe it is 2020 and the start of a new decade. We were especially excited to ring in the new year as it marks Schloegel Design Remodel’s 40th anniversary! We will be celebrating this milestone throughout 2020 by sharing memories each Monday as well as highlight 40 past and present projects we’ve had the opportunity to work on.
Is it really almost March already? Wow. This year is flying by! We’ve been so lucky to host and be involved in a number of events so far in 2010. Here’s a short recap:
January was an exciting month for us. On top of hosting a seminar on design trends, Schloegel Design Remodel was also very excited to hear we won eight awards at the 2009 REMYs:

We were also excited to be able to sponsor a team in the Kansas City Children’s TLC Groundhog’s Day run.
Jake Schloegel redesigned his own business model to better serve his clients in a down economy. New products, new services help redefine his business.
We completed this kitchen remodel earlier this fall and it was such a delight to see that our homeowners are enjoying it and having fun with holiday decorating in their new space! We love the red décor with the cream/blue/gray colors of the kitchen.
You never know what you might uncover when remodeling an old house. Someone decided to chisel out a track for a wire rather than getting the wire back into the wall the way it should have been done. This wire was covered by a mirror which provided some protection against an electrical shock, still not the best way to do it.
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.
Our painter, Carey, is taking our client’s pool table from a dated pickled finish to a sleek and modern espresso finish to match the newly finished basement.
Stay posted for after photos of this pool table and it’s new surroundings!
We have completed the basement work that we blogged about earlier this week. Here are pictures of the completed television room.
Part of our work included constructing the two areas of storage that are flanking the center television stand.
We’re very proud that our very own, Donna Kirsopp, recently had one of her designs featured on the Kansas City Homes & Gardens website. If you missed the article, don’t worry. We have plenty of great pictures to share with you. And we’ll even share some of the commentary from the KCH&G article.
