HGTV Design Star competitor Jason Champion designed this transitional bedroom with a large padded headboard, patterned draperies, mirrored dresser and a mirrored wall that makes this small space feel less cramped.
The designer of this kitchen constructed a pull-out work space under the countertop to make its small space more utilitarian. The design of the kitchen is simple, and its color scheme seems to expand the space visually, adding depth and dimension.
Although the sitting room gives the homeowners a smaller, more intimate space to entertain, the open concept design of the public spaces in the home would allow the homeowners to use all of the spaces together for a larger gathering.
Headboards don’t have to be hard or uncomfortable, and for smaller spaces, it’s sometimes better not to have a formal one at all. “For small spaces or studios, I like placing a bed in a corner and using lots of throw pillows as a ‘headboard’ so the bed can act as both a lounge/sofa alternative and as a bed for guests,” says Atlanta design blogger Jo Torrijos at A Simpler Design.
Designer Kari McIntosh Dawdy charmed her client with this bathroom transformation that used a monochromatic, unadorned design to achieve a spa-like atmosphere. Sometimes the less-is-more approach works magic for a small space.
In the center of this small kitchen, designers brought in an undersized, rustic kitchen island that would add a rich, wood tone to the neutral space as well as contribute storage and counter space to the room's design.
