The Kansas City chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) held its annual awards program, the REMY Awards on Thursday, January 16. It seems like forever ago already! It was a great night for Schloegel and one that made each and every one of us proud to work for a company dedicated to creating beautiful spaces with unparalleled craftsmanship.
We worked on so many wonderful projects in 2019 and are proud and honored to receive REMY award for nine of these projects including the Best of Show Under $75,000 (the submission was for Design & Plans). It’s quite a feat to have won an award every year since its inception in 1990. This is especially so as Schloegel is the only Kansas City remodeling company to have done so.
We have shared several of these awesome projects over the last year. We will also be sharing more details for those projects we haven’t yet shared over the next few months.
These homeowners were quickly running out of space for their family of six. With a seventh on the way, they decided it was time to update. We went with a kitchen design using 2 islands; one is for prep space, and the other is for seating. We added built-ins in the new mudroom for storage and more workspace for the laundry room. A new pantry and powder bath were created. The office received desk built-ins and bookcases. The living room fireplace also got a facelift, with built-ins on both sides. The client loves to use the fireplace when family visits.
After purchasing this beautiful, Spanish-inspired home, our clients knew they needed to implement a few changes to make it perfect for their family. The large, uncomfortable basement underwent a dramatic transformation to add an intimate and upscale media room with custom seating and lighting. The marquee entry ties into the distinctive personality of the home, while the custom movie poster frames let you know that It’s Show Time!
From builder-grade to custom and elegant with high-end finishes, every detail in this master bathroom increases the room’s functionality while elevating its design. Updating the floorplan to include a snail style shower, more storage, and amp up the lighting made the bathroom more functional for these repeat clients. Their desire for bling and a classic aesthetic guided us in our design selections. Now, touches of elegance abound throughout the bathroom with the traditional Guinness stained cherry vanity, marble tile rug, underfloor heat, and fleur-de-lis pattern sinks.
Every square inch of this home has been renovated! Our client purchased the classic ranch with the intent to make it her own with a new layout and high-end finishes. The house was brought down to the studs and built back creating a whole-house transformation. Four additions off the back of the home, including a new master suite, kitchen expansion, family room, and mudroom, created the perfect floorplan. With custom built-ins in nearly every room, gorgeous finish materials and brass and black light fixtures, our client’s dream of a Modern Classic home came to life.
This home was transformed from its dark-stained traditional woodwork and cabinetry into a brighter, more modern transitional style. White shaker cabinetry was accented with a fun geometric backsplash and an island in a contrasting navy blue adorned with Statuario Maximus quartz to create an overall lighter color palette. The main focal point in the kitchen became the fireplace. Stunning custom woodwork extending to the ceiling added height while the Silver Ash Travertine stack stone surrounding the fireplace and Fossil Gray Quartz added detail. Walls and trim were painted throughout with hardwoods being re-stained to a modern greige color.
Kitchen Remodel $30,000 – 60,000 – Gold REMY
After living through the failure of a contractor not completing their kitchen for almost a year, this client was more than ready to have their kitchen back! The unfinished cabinets were removed; a new layout was created to include an oversized island with seating, beverage refrigerator, and microwave drawer. The island served as a divider between the kitchen and family rooms. Two-tone cabinets were chosen with white uppers and gray lowers, accented by patterned tile at the contrasting walnut hood. Another wood element was created at the coffee bar by adding a barnwood chevron pattern to complete the farmhouse feel.
A Dream Chef’s Kitchen! With the appliances selected, our homeowners looked to our team to help design a kitchen to accommodate them. They wanted to say goodbye to the dark, dated feel of their 90’s kitchen and create something that brought in light and had a highly functional layout. Their new kitchen delivers that and so much more, the design utilizes the length of the kitchen providing usable workspace in the entire kitchen. An innovative mix of grayish-blue painted cabinets and stained cabinets works wonderfully and creates a transitional meets farmhouse look.
Kitchen Remodel over $150,000 – Gold REMY
It was time to move or renovate for this family and renovate they did! The cramped and closed off dining, family and kitchen spaces were combined to create an open kitchen and dining area. The new kitchen boasts a marble backsplash, floating shelving, island, and a beverage station, and a new pantry with barn doors. Beautiful quartz counters, a combination of stained island cabinetry and painted perimeter cabinetry, fabulous light fixtures and a mix of metals help create a fresh design palette that stirs up visions of tranquil waters and a relaxing beach retreat.
Landscape Design/Outdoor Living $100,000 – $250,000 – Gold REMY
Tranquil Backyard Oasis! A poorly graded patio was creating a water issue for our clients and they decided to take the opportunity to turn their lackluster outdoor space into a true backyard retreat. The new patio has multiple entertaining areas, custom brickwork selected to match the home, and a built-in kitchen. The entire space was designed to complement the home’s exterior design including the 14-foot-tall wood burning fireplace and custom lighting. Unique details like the herringbone brick pattern on the fireplace and custom lighting make it is easy to see how this fabulous space is the showpiece of the neighborhood.
Congrats Schloegel team on some fantastic REMY projects.
