Storage is no issue in this master bathroom with a spacious double vanity. Cabinets on each side and below the sinks ensure there's a place for everything. Sliding glass doors provide access to the balcony with seating to take in the water view, and the relaxing soaking tub allows you to take in the view from inside, too.
Dark wood floors and cabinetry combine with clean lines and white walls to create a California kitchen with a sleek yet homey vibe. A long island doubles as a table at one end, allowing ample space for prep work, dining and chatting with the cook. Sliding doors lead to a terrace with spectacular Laguna Beach views.
A pair of textured love seats creates seating around a round, ribbed coffee table. Three red trunks double as colorful decoration and extra table surface, while a horse statue adds to the Asian feel of the design. French doors open into the room to provide access to the balcony and move fresh air and natural light into the space.
This contemporary shower stall, designed by Claire Paquin, displays a pure and clean aesthetic with its gray and white marble walls and clear glass door. Especially fetching is the black hexagon tile flooring that was set both inside and outside the shower stall, providing a strong focal point for the rest of the design. The chrome showerhead coordinates with the double towel rack located adjacent to the shower door.
A variety of unique textures and styles coincide in this eclectic white bathroom. Inspired by the natural landscape just outside, the space features a luxurious rock shower and stunning accent wall. Off to the side, a bathroom stall with saloon doors allows for privacy, while the stained glass mirrors contribute color and character to the neutral double vanity.
Keep your outgoing holiday cards ready to go outside your door in a wall mounted mail sorter. Your outgoing cards can double as decor before you drop them off at the local post office. A similar idea can be used for keeping all of your received holiday cards together for personal charm.
As seen on HGTV's hit show Love It or List It Too, the floors in this living room have been sanded and stained, and the fireplace has a new insert and ties. The shelving beside the fireplace is floating and the dog doors have been built into ledges that double as a location to place a beverage.
This vibrant dining room at the 2014 HGTV Smart Home doubles as a work space, showcasing electric red, an abundance of natural light and a modern take on a sliding barn door. When you step into the dining room "there is a beautiful explosion of color," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. While red increases appetite, the antique hue "adds contrast and breaks up the white throughout."
Kids love rock candy sticks. Place them by the door and they won't be able to resist taking one for the road as they leave the party. To add a little embellishment, cut strips from our printable black-and-white striped paper, attach with double-sided tape and cut into a flag shape. Display on a white platter so the colors pop.
A wasted space in the form of a dated double height covered front door area became a newly found space with the design of this cozy space. By adding a floor, designer Kristina Crestin was able to carve out this little nook. A deep, long window seat with pillows and reading lights is perfect for lounging. Bookcases were built in to the awkward sloped ceiling, creating one of the kids most favorite places.
This kitchen has been reconfigured to take advantage of the new open concept floor plan. A large kitchen island provides more counter space, as well as doubles as a kitchen table with stools running underneath. The sliding door was reduced to a sink under the window, allowing the galley kitchen to run along the whole wall. Stainless steel appliances, pendant and recessed lighting, and a neutral color scheme create a clean modern look to the kitchen. New flooring was added throughout the whole first floor.
Grammy award-winning sound engineers were enlisted to acoustically soundproof this open-concept living room. All of the fabric panels are ingeniously hidden beneath the rustic reclaimed barn board, and the windows are double-paned and sealed, including the giant barn door entryway which has a glass "envelope" once you enter. All of these measures were taken to keep the place completely quiet. The light fixtures had the glass taken out so they wouldn't vibrate during music recording as well. Every detail was carefully thought out. You can't hear a sound outside when they are jamming inside!
Not one inch is wasted in this tiny home designed by Incredible Tiny Homes. The coat closet was thoughtfully designed for hanging front to back therefore requiring very little of the entry’s space; paired with the storage trunk below, the two components allow the entry to function like a mudroom. The pale blue barn door is a great rustic detail that provides privacy for the bathroom without obstructing any space. Dual in its purpose, the bathroom doubles as the laundry room. The combination of the hardwood floors and natural materials create an immediate sense of warmth upon entering the tiny home.
In the home's original master bathroom, the skylight has started to leak and the look and design of the space had become outdated, so the homeowners decided to undertake a major renovation that would completely revitalize their space and give them the private, relaxing master suite of their dreams. In order to achieve this goal, designers closed off the door that previously allowed guests access to the space and removed the outdated features and finishes and replaced them with elegant modern ones, such as this walnut-double vanity. Designers then used the natural light from the windows and skylight to play off the neutral wall color, making the space the perfect oasis for the couple.
Make your storage do double duty as decor. While the vanity cabinet in this 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Competition winning powder room is custom made, a standard vanity without doors on either side can add decorative storage to any small bathroom, says designer Stephanie A. Bruntz of Studio B Design. Bruntz says the diagonal slats in her custom cabinet are one of the more expensive elements, so adding a horizontal shelf or no shelf at all would be much cheaper. She adds that a stylish pendant can also create a designer look without breaking the bank. You can buy frosted mini glass pendants at Home Depot for under $20, while regular sizes range from $80-$100.
