Clean lines and minimal fixtures give this bathroom a modern, luxurious style. The sleek vessel sinks sit atop a sandy colored marble counter that blends seamlessly with the walls, while dark wood cabinet doors add contrast to the space. Recessed lights and small chandeliers keep the space from feeling flat and large. Gray tiles give the entire bathroom a spa-like feel.
This contemporary gray and cream kitchen has a breakfast nook area with beautiful upholstered seating and modern, industrial pendant light above. The cream cabinets and stainless steel appliances give this kitchen a clean, sleek look while the coordinating gray countertop and patterned tile backsplash add visual interest. Hardwood flooring brings warmth to the space while small pink and white floral arrangements on the breakfast table add just the right touch of color.
I don't think I've ever been so excited to walk into someone else's kitchen. The Blehm's family kitchen is full of new and innovative ideas. The soft mint-green cabinets were the first breath of fresh air. The color, formerly only used as complimentary, has made a comeback and has been reinvented as a neutral foundation color in unexpected spaces. That refreshing color coupled with classic white counters and marble backsplash feels simultaneously both nostalgic and brand new. The island lighting is a magnificent display of creativity. Angela Blehm upgraded three simple spheres by designing a custom cage constructed from white oak. It’s a one-of-a-kind solution and an amazing focal point for the kitchen. The natural texture of the wooden cage along with the cabinet pulls, adds just enough warmth to make the family's gathering spot feel even more approachable and inviting.
For the renovation, the clients' desire was to strike a balance between mountain-rustic and modern, so they kept the exposed beams, wood ceiling and walls to bring the rustic look into the design. They modernized the space by adding sleek, white cabinets and black countertops. Then, they added cool pendant lights, a bold wall color, a matching backsplash and unique window treatments. The open shelves give the couple storage space while displaying the couple's dishes.
The kitchen in this historic Tudor home was a bit outdated, so designers brightened the space up a bit with a fresh coat of paint and new cabinets and appliances. The walls were painted bright yellow, making the kitchen reminiscent of a sunshiny day, reflecting the natural light that spills into the space through the windows above the sink. New, white cabinets replaced older, outdated ones, and new appliances update the space, while still remaining true to the historic design of the home. To add warmth to the space, dark, soapstone countertops were added for durability and style, off setting the bright colors with a darker one.
This beautiful, South Carolina country kitchen has a neutral color palette that makes the space feel light and inviting. The white custom cabinets give the space an elegant farmhouse charm, and the countertop the homeowners chose had to compliment them. A marble countertop was the perfect choice. The gray in the slab makes brings some warmth to the kitchen, while the durability of the material means that it can stand up to anything the family can throw at it.
A custom picnic table and built-in bench serve as a dining spot in this country home. Mission-style metal pendant lights illuminate the table’s rich wood surface. Dark-brown cement floors and undyed-linen curtains blend in with the home's natural setting. But this place isn’t as rustic as it appears -- the cabinet in the corner houses a high-end refrigerator.
To save the homeowners a little money, Fixer Upper hosts, Chip and Joanna Gaines, decided to keep the original countertops, cabinets and appliances but added color and contrast in the space with a new stone backsplash, new light fixtures and a new coat of paint on the walls. The wall between the living room and dining area were removed to open up the space, and the new slate floors in both rooms create a cohesive flow between the spaces.
Interior designer Becki Owens chose Shaker-style cabinets for this crisp white kitchen. "The clean, simplistic lines of this style of cabinetry not only stand the test of time, but give your home a fresh, more modern look when paired with a simple backsplash or a mitered-edge counter," she says. "I like to pair Shaker-style cabinetry with white subway tile and natural wood in either open shelving or styled accents on the counters. This combo is always a win. You can switch out your lighting, hardware and accessories over the years to play with the overall look of your space, but these key elements create a foundation that will have your home looking beautiful for years to come."
Although this space is small, designers used the architecture of the building as well as elements in their design to make the space feel larger. For example, stately wood paneling leads the eye all the way up to the high, pitched ceiling, while the ceiling height, arched windows let in plenty of natural light so that the space feels magnificent. Then, designers brought in rugs and art to create defined spaces within the office so that the room has flow and purpose. Finally, designers used strategically placed metallic pieces, such as the desk and filing cabinet, to reflect all of the gorgeous light in the space, creating a functional space with a grand feeling.
Before the renovation, this kitchen had little room for the young family who owned it to move around and cook together, so designers overhauled the floor plan, creating the space for a kitchen island. Designers kept the color palette light and neutral with white cabinets and trim, honed black pearl granite and white Caesarstone, making the space feel more open. They then added color with bright kitchen ware and bold counter stools that are vinyl and can easily be wiped clean.
Designers wanted the kitchen to be both elegant and functional, so they continued the modern look into this space. Clean lines and sharp edges keep the room looking clean and neat, while the blue-gray tile and rich hardwood floor make the space warm and inviting. To accommodate the homeowners' everyday as well as entertaining needs, designers included plenty of prep and storage space with counters and cabinets on two walls of the space and a large kitchen island with an eat in option. To add to the elegance of the space, designers added stainless steel appliances and stainless steel pendant lights, giving the room a little extra sparkle that highlights the natural light that comes in through the door and windows.
This neutral kid's room proves that a space doesn't have to be colorful to be fun and playful. Built-in cabinets flank both sides of the bed, creating functional and stylish bedside tables. An upholstered headboard with two rows of nailhead trim is custom-built to fit the space, and reading lights above are a practical addition. Dinosaur-printed bedding and a pair of acid green pillows bring punch and kid-friendly flair.
The kitchen is the heart of any home, and for these Kansas homeowners, this space is no exception. The warm tones of the backsplash and the cabinets in the space make the kitchen inviting, while the large window over the kitchen sink allows plenty of natural light into the space to make it brighter. Modern bar stools under a large island give the family a place to gather and prepare their food and make their memories.
This laundry room lives much larger than its square footage, thanks to smart planning by Geoff Chick & Associates. The base cabinets that flank the washer and dryer are just 18 inches deep, but extending the wall of cabinetry all the way to the 12-foot ceiling vastly increases the usable space. Windows visually expand the room; the natural light flooding in enhances the warm notes in the soft gray paint. "Most laundry rooms are tucked away in a dark corner or in the basement," Chick notes.
His and her vanities with mirrored cabinets and glass countertops add a stylish element to this master bathroom. A custom tiled shower in shades of blue feels inspired by the ocean waves with its design, and a blue mosaic tile bathtub offers a place to soak and enjoy a glass of wine after a long day's work. Above, the large frosted glass window allows plenty of light to filter through the space while still providing privacy.
HGTV Design Star winner Meg Caswell designed the entire home, but this master bathroom is her favorite room. The green glass tile contrasts with the white counters, while large porcelain floor tiles make the room feel fresh and spa like. The modern bathroom has high windows providing plenty of natural light, and a long mirror that stretches above both vanity sinks. The white countertop extends beyond the vanities and changes level to conform to the varied height of the woodgrain cabinets.
To add some variation to the guest bath, the designers chose a chartreuse green tile color for the shower space and paint color for the sink room. For some warmth and age, barn board was used on the ceiling, and a local maker built the cart that serves as the vanity.
A pop of light turquoise coordinates so well with the chartreuse. Above the faucets are bypassing medicine cabinets that also have electrical in them, hiding toiletries and adding more storage.
