To create flexibility in the children's area, a sliding door subdivides the space for nighttime and nap time, creating two separate bedroom spaces, each with its own entrance. During the day, though, parents can keep the space open, creating a great big playroom for the kids.
Architects kept the house's original L-shape design, and used it to divide the home into public and private spaces. The kitchen and family rooms are on one side of the L. The dining room and foyer are in the center. The left of the L contains bedrooms, private bathrooms and workspaces.
Tiny homes are rarely designed with private bedrooms but this home from Movable Roots truly has it all. With a full-size bed, a vaulted ceiling, and its own patio entrance this master bedroom is tiny house luxury. The white shiplap and brass lighting details are carried into the space to create design continuity. Lastly, the strategically placed cabinets provide storage and also act as bedside tables.
With a 3,992-square-foot floor plan, three floors, and three bedrooms and two baths, this townhouse gives its owners plenty of room to stretch out. The first level can be treated as a guest space, while concrete steps lead to the main entrance pictured here.
This two-story loft in Boston's South End features new walnut stair treads that lead up to the master suite. A folding door with frosted privacy glass opens the bedroom to the foyer, while a desk attached to a black metal railing creates a functional work area with a fantastic view of the play space below.
With a private entrance from the master bedroom and office wing, this secluded living space was designed to be a retreat where the couple could unwind together. Thus, a comfortable, charcoal gray sectional gives the owners room to cuddle up or stretch out, while Pecky Cypress Beams take advantage of the high ceilings.
When the owner of a run-down, century-old row house near D.C.'s Union Market asked Kerra Michele Huerta to help renovate their space, the designer leapt at the chance to get creative. After the construction crew dug out the basement to create a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment with a full kitchen for guests, Huerta stepped into the entryway and used remnants of unsalvageable pine floors to design a "welcome mat" inlay in the new foyer. The coat rack was repurposed too; though it seems right at home next to the bright red art, it's actually comprised of old pipes.
This home was formerly a two family dwelling and was converted to a single family residence consisting of a kitchen and dining room on the first floor. The second floor hosts the foyer, formal living room and den, while the third floor contains three bedrooms and bathrooms for the family. Black and white staircases connect all three levels.
Wallpaper in surprising places! The powder room, entry foyer, and hallways are a great place to explore with bold patterns and colors. Since people don’t spend a lot of time there, you can go really maximalist with the design, unlike in your master bedroom or dining room which you might want to keep more calm.
The designers left the staircase and fieldstone planter in their original condition, but added a painted wood screen to separate the stairs from the lower-level family room and bedroom, the latter of which is now used as an office. Pushing out the entry door gave the foyer a bit more breathing room, and new porcelain tile flooring updated the look.
The spa inspiration for this bathroom spills out into the entrance of the space. Two floating sinks adorn the vanity, which houses wicker baskets for towels. The space is lit by a large window with a thin curtain hanging in front of it to allow in plenty of light to the bathroom, but also to the adjoined master bedroom, making both spaces feel warm and inviting.
After the renovation, the master bedroom in the Gubelmann's new home feels modern and functional, blending Alex's modern sensibilities with Fiona's more vintage taste to create the hip hotel retreat feel that the homeowners wanted. Double doors provide a dramatic entrance, while wainscoting and yellow walls warm up the space. The crown molding frames the ceiling and its spectacular chandelier, as seen on HGTV's House Hunters Renovation.
The multi-purpose design of the Mimico Storage Ottoman from Gus* Modern allows you to use this flexible piece of furniture as a bench, coffee table or ottoman in an entryway, bedroom or living room.

This kid's bedroom, from HGTV Green Home 2102, features twin beds dressed in green and white organic cotton linens. A layering of textures and fabric patterns, like the zigzag headboards, suits both children and discriminating house guests. A cozy loft is situated above the beds; a wooden ladder provides a treehouse-like entrance, while a clever bucket and pulley system keeps the space stocked with treats and supplies.
Ariene describes what was then a newly built, 3,100 square foot, 4-bedroom home as “craftsman-ish,” blending modern and classic elements. The home welcomes guests with an entryway that is a clear statement of what matters to the people who live here. A beautiful collection of objects occupies and sits atop the Chinese-style cabinet, which is flanked on both sides by images of iconic African American musicians. The walls and welcome mat promise more color and pattern to come.
To make way for a large walk-in shower, the existing tub was removed. Rectangular porcelain tile with a bamboo effect is installed vertically to add visual height in the shower. A contemporary shower panel with contrasting natural bamboo and sleek stainless steel creates an eye-catching display. The glass block window streams natural light through the door-less shower entrance and can be seen from the bedroom.
Chip and his team from HGTV's hit show Elbow Room remodeled the Struves' home office so that it had a separate entrance that keeps guests and clients out of the couple's bedroom. They also added features such as noise canceling walls to keep any distracting noises away from them as they work. There is extra storage in the office now as well as cool modern furniture and accents that appeal to the couple's creative side.
"Well, why the hell not?" seems to be the motto of this small space. Even though the apartment only has a living room and a bedroom, the designers have fit much more life into the space. In the main living area, designated areas for a home office, a sitting area, a living room, a dining area and a wet bar have been established. The bedroom, although small, has made the most of its space with a slender dresser and hanging end table, and the entryway has been transformed into a makeshift mudroom. Who says you can't have it all?
