The casual and comfortable media room in this Lake Tahoe ski getaway features an extra-long modular sofa and a sturdy table perfect for game playing, puzzle building and casual dining. An integrated fireplace and wall-mounted TV are sleek and minimal on a long wall. The horizontal planes in the space draw the eye to the tall windows, which show off a spectacular mountain view.
Dark gray is used on the second floor of this large living space to bring the height of the room down, creating a cozy, family-friendly room. A trio of coffee tables makes one big surface or can be separated for a modular space when entertaining. Comfortable seating, from the large sectional to the comfortable gray chair, create a great space to gather and relax.
The most effective way to use any outdoor area maximally is with perimeter seating. Here, a modular sectional sofa is configured to conform to a corner of this welcoming courtyard, putting every square inch of the area to use. For optional flexibility, consider sectional sofas without arms since the armless modules can also be added to elongate a straight-lined sofa.
Puffy modular seating is low and contemporary in this modern farmhouse living room. The white-walled space opens to the dining room and kitchen, giving the home an open-plan, contemporary feel, while traditional architectural touches connect the home to its rural, 12-acre site. An open front porch spans the length of the house, showcasing the view of open fields and distant hills while shading the first-floor interior.
To provide some contrast to the mostly white bathroom, dark teal accents can be found adorned to the wall and featured in the countertop's accessories. A modular dark wood vanity floats above the floor, with a brown and white backsplash that adds visual appeal. The large walk-in shower is separated from the rest of the space with a solid glass divider to keep the design bright and open.
Bring new functionality into your kitchen by maximizing the countertop space with thoughtful storage solutions, such as counter-level drawers. This kitchen by David Heide Design Studio, based in Minneapolis, was a 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association award winner and features custom drawers and cabinets. But you could buy a simple modular drawer (or two) and paint it to match your cabinets for a streamlined look.
The paver walkway narrows and widens, adding interest to the renovated landscape and exterior of a Minnesota home. Southview Design laid out the red brick pavers in a soldier course pattern and selected a lighter tone for the walkway's border. Modular retaining walls with wide steps and landings extend the home's architecture to the street.
This modular sofa breathes life and fun into this unique library space. Though it’s made of four pieces that can easily be separated and spread around a room, it’s hard to deny the impact they have when working together. Combined with the room’s other elements like the conceptual lamp, stained glass door and the funky art piece overhead, the sofa is a perfect finishing touch.
Instead of searching endlessly for the perfect area rug, create your own colorful look with carpet tiles. You can achieve a big look on a small budget by going modular; just six FLOR® tiles can make a roughly 3’ x 5’ rug or a narrow 10-foot runner, and the individual tiles can cost as little as $8 apiece. Shown is the FLOR style House Pet, which comes in a rainbow of hues and can stand up to heavy foot traffic.
Prior to the renovation, the fireplace brick was a plain, drab color. Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri painted the brick and the mantel in bright white for a stronger visual impact. The firewood holder is a welded steel box with plates attached at the top and mid-point for structural support. An oversized wall clock is made from reclaimed wood, while a five-piece modular sectional sofa makes for a comfy spot to relax.
