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.
Designer Harmony Wells chose a tall cabinet to solve several problems in her clients’ small bath. “Because the space only had 8-foot high ceilings, we wanted to draw the eye up. The floor-to-ceiling custom linen cabinet makes the room feel larger and lighter,” she says. Wells designed the piece with an open-and-closed combination of storage. “This makes the unit less busy, visually, and keeps the overall scale on the smaller side, so it doesn’t compete with the shower.”
The main feature in this soft blue bedroom is a custom television lift cabinet at the foot of the bed, allowing the TV to lift and swivel in order to be viewed from various angles. When the television is not in use, it can be lowered and concealed within the console.
A small countertop in a guest bathroom is an opportunity to use remnant pieces, achieving high style with huge savings. Austin Lineberry, owner of New River Building Co., did just that to save money per square foot on this granite counter. The gorgeous gray tile complements the counter and looks more expensive than it was, because it was stock glass tile from a home improvement store.
A 16-foot-long granite island hosts six bright yellow bar stools for extra seating and a display of restaurant-style appliances. The outdoor dining area and grilling station are easily accessible via a sliding glass door, which can be opened to facilitate traffic flow between spaces during parties.
A yellow, footed tub framed by yellow, floral curtains make a cozy place to bathe. A wood cabinet, antique door with glass handle and a blue, distressed footstool complete the French Country aesthetic.
HGTV Dream Home designer Linda Woodrum was inspired by birch bark for this modern kitchen's color palette. Cararra marble tile in a symmetrically-stacked pattern is set against charcoal-hued cabinets. The nearly 13-foot-long island, topped with white quartz, features three cabinets of storage shelves cloaked behind frosted glass.
This kitchen features 10-foot ceilings, limestone counters and a work surface made of African bubinga wood. The Venetian plaster range hood, simple cabinets and floating shelves evoke an earthy English cottage look.
This 8-foot-wide modern kitchen hangs a turn into the adjacent dining room. To make it appear larger, the designers continue the horizontal lines down the long kitchen both in the kerf, or incised line, of the cabinets and the flooring. The cabinets reaching the ceiling draw the eye up as well.
The designer removed most of the wall between the dining room and kitchen resulting in an 8 foot cased opening, making the rooms feel and work as one. The crown molding above the cabinets was continued around the room.
Above the garage sits this charming, 600-square foot apartment. Because the roof pitch created low ceilings in the corners, designers used those areas for closets and the pantry. An unusual, patterned backsplash adds dimension to the kitchen's basic white cabinets.
