Hands-free conveniences makes this modern kitchen a baker's delight. A pop-up mixing stand eliminates having to pull the heavy standing mixer out of a cabinet, and it doesn't have to be stored on the countertop all the time. Touchless faucets are also installed for when the baker is covered in flour and batter.
At once traditional and contemporary, this small home office combines the best of both styles. Glossy blue paint freshens up traditional cabinetry. A pop-up laptop and keyboard stand frees up valuable desk space.
Streamlined cabinetry, colorful barstools and a hidden refrigerator are the stand-out features in this open kitchen. The San Francisco kitchen and all of its modern fixtures and finishes were featured on HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms.
Adding a pop of color to the contemporary space, a red shag rug grounds the twin chaises. The dark wood entertainment center stands out against the light walls, providing media storage to keep the room clean and clutter-free.
A glass-paned railing and beige-colored walls allow the sleek metal framework of the railing to stand out in the space. Natural light from the surrounding windows and door flows freely throughout the area thanks to the transparent railing.
A dazzling white dual-purpose deck stands out against the lush green lawn and stone fire pit in a design that includes Trex Transcends decking featuring a rain escape system with hidden downspouts, Azek railing posts and Techno-bloc pavers. Trey Transcends decks are easy to maintain with soapy water and soft brushes for cleaning. If removing ice or snow, use a plastic shovel. To remove hard water mineral deposits, use white vinegar or a product recommended by the manufacturer.
Rabbits make quick work of plants—and they’re not picky. They’ll chow down on your peas, beans, lettuce, petunias and even potted plants. When they’re the culprits behind vanishing plants, you’ll often find leaves missing with stems intact or stubs where an entire plant used to stand. To keep rabbits at bay, try repellents, chicken wire, netting or a free-running dog (with an underground fence). Clean up yard debris that could give rabbits hiding places, and plugs any holes that lead under sheds, decks or porches.
