An upstairs space is used as both an office and a guest room in this renovated home. Dark hardwood grounds the space, while unique, custom sliding doors add interest. Pops of bright aqua add to the room's airy, lighthearted feel.
An underused butler’s pantry now serves as an elegant wine closet and entertaining focal point. The custom glass doors with metal frames match the windows of the house. Three walls hold wine, accented by a piece of artwork commissioned by MOSAIC Group. The wood countertops are faux-finished to look like concrete countertops elsewhere in the home.
Designer Kim Lewis added the large 9' window to the space to make the bathroom that much brighter. To keep from covering it up with a traditional mirror, Lewis used a barn door track, providing flexibility in placement, so it never hinders the view of the incredible Southern California landscape just outside.
As seen on HGTV's Elbow Room, the bedroom utilizes the angled roof line and features plenty of closet space, bold blue colors and a moveable bed that can be placed at the window for a beautiful lake view. The closets have custom designed wood doors that add a modern flare to the space. After the master suite renovation by licensed contractor Chip Wade, the Van Hattums now have a beautiful master suite and bathroom which combines their love for the old world style and modern conveniences.
A custom-designed metal door slides on a barn door track system to stylishly hide this home's washer and dryer. Throughout the house, the designers used reclaimed materials and industrial elements to customize the space and add architectural interest.
Directly off the guest room which doubles as a media room, rests a small powder room that converts into a full bath. Just like in the kitchen, the less attractive, but still necessary, features of the space are hidden. This time, a shower is hidden behind a custom Walnut door. This powder room and its secret shower give guests their own little en-suite when they visit this Boston Penthouse.
The backside of a kitchen cabinet door is a space with great potential that’s too often wasted. A spice rack is an ideal way to put it to use — it frees up the inside of the cabinet and keeps all those tiny bottles neat and readable at eye level. Designer Jan Goldman of Kitchen Elements had this cabinet custom-made for her client, but there are lots of prefab wall-mounted options available designed specifically for spice storage.
