This may be a hard-working laundry room, but it feels anything like one. HGTV fan MrPeabody prevents a pure "utility" atmosphere by integrating the home's rustic architecture, wooden ceiling beams and warm pendant lighting.
Rough stone walls and barrel-vaulted ceilings create a wine cellar with warmth and old-world charm. This European-style home rests on 4.5 acres in a serene, private enclave in California's Lake Arrowhead community.
Just off the kitchen, Chip and Joanna added a locker style mudroom. With custom lockers for each of the family members, coats, backpacks and shoes have a clear place to go. To close off this space from the rest of the house, the rustic, wood, sliding barn door keeps the mudroom private. As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
Spacious Wine Cellar With Rustic Stone Ceiling and Walls
This rustic wine cellar features all-over gray stone, covering the ceiling and walls. Several wooden wine shelves hang on the walls, while a stone sink and set of drawers offer room for prep and cleanup. Glass pendant lights hang above a pub-style table and chairs, creating the perfect spot for wine tasting.
Rustic Laundry Room With Whitewashed Paneled Walls
To transform their dingy and outdated laundry room into a bright and modern-day utility space, design blogger Erin Loechner and her husband, Ken, renovated the entire room from top to bottom sans contractor. They added wood-paneled walls, enclosed shelves above the washer and dryer, tiled flooring, a concrete vanity countertop, custom pendants and handcrafted details, like leather cabinet pulls. Now, the space appears stylish and homespun but 100 percent functional.
Architect Daniel Contelmo worked side by side with the masons to select and set the large stones that create this carriage house's curved base, which tapers in two directions. The entire exterior features earth tones that coordinate beautifully with the woodland surroundings.
There's more to be admired in this luxury garage than just the impressive automobiles. Brick floors with radiant heating add charm underfoot, and exposed ceiling beams add rustic, barn-inspired appeal overhead.
Gorgeous Open-Plan Family Room From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, a cinder block wall was removed to create this open and bright basement entertainment area. Sarah highlighted the home's original gray stone fireplace with rustic-modern furnishings in chic blues, grays and rich cherry browns. Plenty of seating and storage allow this room to be used for movie nights, casual dinners or sleepovers for the clients' two young boys.
Rustic, Barn-Like Carriage House Provides Car Storage
This 5,000-square-foot carriage house — mainly dedicated to car storage and display — was designed to evoke the feel of a 150-year-old barn. The stone walls were erected with some of the original stones taken from walls built by farmers who previously owned the property.
