It’s been ten years since Mike and Connie Schmidt were first introduced to the Brown Wegher team. Since then, the couple has built three homes with the award-winning Sioux City firm, each house with a different location, style, and personality.
“There were some similarities,” says Mike. “But each has shown how our style has evolved, from a mix of traditional to more of a modern, clean, streamlined look in our furniture, cabinetry, and architecture.”
Each home also features wood floors throughout and minimal carpeting, which heightens the modern style of the home. “Brown Wegher always seems to be on top of the latest trends, so it’s easy to merge our favorite elements, like wood floors and tile, with our love of the newest styles on the market.”
“As experienced designers with strong product knowledge, the Brown Wegher team was prepared and ready to discuss my questions about trends along with color options, finishes, wearability, ease of maintenance, and more,” added Connie. “Their designers are innovative and creative, and they gave me great advice about which styles would best fit our personality.”
“So far, one of my favorite design elements has been a modern metal fireplace surround built by our project manager, Dan Feste,” said Mike. “I’ve never seen anything like it, and it really makes the space.”
After building three different homes, the Schmidts have learned a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t in home design, but most of those lessons were cushioned by the fact that the Brown Wegher team was quick to point out pros and cons for each design decision. “The pocket door in the master bedroom was not our best idea,” adds Connie. “Thank goodness for modern, sleek barn doors. You get the full function while also being able to enjoy its aesthetic appeal.”
And the best part? “Nearly every design element you could want can be found right at Brown Wegher,” adds Connie. “They had the best quality and the best pricing, and I should know—shopping is a passion of mine. Brown Wegher came through time and time again, proving their one-stop-shop was the best way for us to save time and money. And the results are amazing.”
