Schroeder and NARI’s 10th Annual Tour of Remodeled Homes

Schroeder partnered with a number of clients for this year’s NARI 10th Annual Tour of Remodeled Homes.

Schroeder worked with Realty Restoration to provide high quality materials for the Sundown House. The natural oil hardwood floors seen in the photo below are available through Schroeder. Natural oil hardwood floors are an excellent choice for those who want a warm but stylish look to their space. Clients love natural oil hardwood floors because they do not contain the glossy acrylic, polyurethane, and/or aluminumoxide that most hardwood floors have as a top layer. Instead, these floors are all natural with no VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and can hold up to an activity family with pets.

More information about this project can be found here.

At the Sundown House, tour participants will also see the Hadden-style wool canvas carpet that is available through Schroeder.

Schroeder also partnered with Realty Restoration for the Talbot House. The hardwood floors, seen in the photo below in the kitchen, and the natural stone materials for the walls and back splash are available at Schroeder.

More information about this project can be found here.

At the Talbot House, tour participants will also see the 24×36 inch travertine planks with inlay wood that decorate the living room floor. Additionally, participants will see in the master bath a beautiful ming green, metal and Italian ice mosaic. Schroeder can help you pick the materials and design that is right for you.

Schroeder also partnered with Sky West Builders for the Silver Mountain House. As seen in the picture below, Schroeder helped with the contemporary and colorful glass, tile and stone mosaic back splash for the kitchen. For most, the kitchen is where everyone gathers, therefore many clients like to use color in the kitchen to create a space with a sense of warmth.

More information about this project can be found here.

At the Silver Mountain House, tour participants will be able to see the wall to wall carpeting that is available through Schroeder. The neutral colored carpet is a high-end nylon that will be able to stand up to the wear and tear of an active family. Many of our clients choose a dense and think carpet for their bedrooms (such as the Silver Mountain House) because it provides a warm soft feeling that envelopes you are you enter the space.

NARI’s 10th Annual Tour of Remodeled Homes is on Saturday and Sunday, October 26th and 27th from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Click here for more information about the tour and tickets.

See you there!

Schroeder and the 26th Annual AIA Tour

Schroeder is looking forward to this year’s 26th Annual AIA Austin Homes Tour on October 6th and 7th.

Schroeder worked with Butterfield Custom Homes and Butter Lutz Interiors to provide the highest quality materials for this beautiful home that will be featured on the tour.

This home features natural oil finish hardwood floors which can be purchased at Schroeder. Natural oil finish hardwood floors provide warmth and sophistication to any room. Because these hardwood floors do not have a polyurethane finish, they do not contain VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and do not emit potentially harmful chemicals. These hardwood floors are great for families with children and animals because small scrapes will not be seen as easily as those with a glossy polyurethane finish. Clients love these floors for their beauty and their ability to withstand the normal wear and tear of life.

The taupe carpet, featured in the this photo, is available at Schroeder. The carpet is a STAINMASTER nylon and contains a sophisticated and modern square-like texture that adds a touch of warmth to the space. This type of carpet is easy to clean and exceptionally durable.

The vein-cut travertine floor seen in this master bathroom can be purchased at Schroeder. Travertine is a natural stone and provides character to any room. The material can be used as floors and walls as well as counter tops and more. The natural but modern look makes it a popular choice.

Who said wallpaper has to be like your grandmother’s? Today’s wallpaper selection includes contemporary, bold and fun styles such as the one seen below. This beautiful print, seen below, provides a pop of expression. Schroeder provides a wide-variety of wallpaper that sets a modern, contemporary, traditional or even fun (!) tone to any space.
