Kitchen Remodeling on a Budget

For most, the kitchen is considered the center of activity for any household. It’s where family and friends gather to cook, eat, drink and socialize. And because of that, it’s a popular choice for remodeling, whether it’s to brighten or update an existing space. At Schroeder we believe that a kitchen remodel can be done on a reasonable budget. With the proper planning, guidance and material choices, a fresh look in your kitchen is within reach. Schroeder partnered with CG&S Design-Build to remodel the kitchen below, on a reasonable budget, that created a fresh and bright look.

Staying within a reasonable budget, this remodeled kitchen features natural hickory hardwood floors and a backsplash made of stone and copper.


A closer look at the backsplash made of stone and copper. The materials chosen were reasonably priced and allowed the client to remodel their kitchen on a budget. All materials are available at Schroeder.


Rock n Roll (design) Style in Austin

In Austin we are well-known for our music festivals such as South by Southwest (SxSW) and Austin City Limits (ACL) but we are also known for our cool sense of style. Some would say, a rock n roll style. Rock n roll style can be described in many ways from loud and fast, to bold and crazy, to edgy and unique. One our partners, Butter Lutz Interiors, does a beautiful job of creating beautiful spaces that blend sophistication with a little bit of rock n roll.
