Historical Hyde Park Project Before

We are really excited to be starting a project in historical Hyde Park.  This wonderful duplex was built in 1921, and still posses many of the beautiful, unique qualities found in buildings built during that era.  The generous moldings, doors and trim are original.

Excited about the new Kohler collection

We always love to see what Kohler introduces each year at the product launch at KBIS (Kitchen & Bath Industry Show). This year, they introduced a very modern faucet collection called the “Stance” collection. Wow! We can’t wait to use it!

Doing our part

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.

Debby Allmon on replacing a shattered light bulb

Q. A light bulb in our kitchen blew out and shattered above the sink. I want to remove the base and replace the bulb, but I’m a bit nervous. A friend said that happened at his house, and he used a piece of fruit to remove it. Any pointers?

A. Turn off the power to the light fixture at the circuit breaker.

Figuring out the proper wood finish

The table's cut-off end has not been presented to Sally for final stain selection. Tony, the painter, should have the counter stained and finished mid next week.

We think it is important to understand the choice you are making when selecting the finish that you will use should you decide on a wood or butcher block counter top

Finishing practices for wood furniture and cabinetry, although very durable, are not considered food safe.

Lunch with the Schloegel crew

We just finished a great project with our client, Michelle Cour, and she was so pleased with her renovations that she treated the team to lunch at the 75th St. Brewery!  Debby, Brad, Megan, Jake, Tom and Michelle had a delicious lunch and shared funny remodeling stories.
