The homeowners needed plenty of storage in their new addition, so designers took the opportunity to put storage wherever possible. The created an arched TV niche for a visual anchor point to the space, but it also has a storage closet behind it. On either side of the TV niche, nook areas took double duty-the right nook serves as an eating nook and game table, while the left nook is a craft table and a wet bar.
Designers wanted to create a cool entertaining space for these homeowners, so they installed a unique 14-foot onyx marble table with a stainless steel inlaid vertical grain. Rich, walnut cabinets were put in place to complement the decadent marble, while six stainless steel barstools add a touch of modern flair to the space.

After removing walls and closing in the deck, licensed contractor Chip Wade creates a gourmet kitchen in the Francis home of Atlanta, Ga. The kitchen features an oversized island that holds appliances, a wood banquette and kitchen table giving the space a circular flow. The space is decorated with white cabinets and light countertops, but accented with warm accent colors, as seen on HGTV and DIY Network's Elbow Room.
To complete the seamless indoor/outdoor lounging and entertainment space, designers added three six foot wide sliding glass doors that disappear into the wall when opened. This allows for the family to enjoy both their indoor and outdoor spaces simultaneously.
The kitchen cabinets in this design are from the original home. They have been cleaned, painted and reconfigured to give them new life and, when combined with the new cabinet hardware and drawer pulls, give the space a custom, unique, rustic look.
