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.

NAHB’s 5 tips to a successful home remodel

The National Association of Home Builders released their 5 tips to a successful home remodel yesterday. It reminds us that Spring is a big time for remodeling, and planning is in full effect. You may even be contemplating a home or room redesign right now.

Table transformation

Family history will be preserved in this kitchen makeover. Sally and Don raised their children around this maple butcher block table.

We have planned a new kitchen island that will utilize this modified and renewed table as the new island counter.

Not only are we restoring a piece of family history, but we're also recycling lumber.

Leawood Rotary and the Urban Rangers

The Leawood Rotary club recently raised over $3500 in their annual Christmas Auction.  The money was evenly divided between Marillac School, www.marillac.org and the Urban Rangers, www.urckc.org, two very deserving organizations.  The photo shows the two auctioneers, Stu Sharp and Jake Schloegel, demonstrating one of the auction items.

Proof of proper insulation

This photo is of a house Schloegel Design Remodel recently remodeled. We converted the attic space on the left side into a bedroom with a full bathroom. Notice the snow on the roof that is still present. The right side of the roof, which covers finished space as well, is free of snow.

A troubled tub

In this before picture, you can see a really dated jetted tub. This tub was never used because the first time it was turned on the water turned black from the residual that was in the jets—YUCK! The white tile tub deck and backsplash, as well as the polished brass hardware (that has oxidized), makes this tub replacement a must.

Dramatic Bathroom Makeover!

 

Wow what a dramatic bathroom makeover from Schloegel's One Week Bath!  The old pink tile and pedestal sink came out in this bedroom bath and was replaced with classic white subway tile and a furniture style cabinet with Carrera marble top.
