Cube-shaped bunching tables combine to form a coffee table, and a metal urn doubles as a spot to hold a drink in this compact family-friendly living room. In the 600-square-foot home, the living area doubles as an entryway and serves as the family’s main gathering space. Graphic textiles, including a throw pillow and area rug, add visual interest.
Make the most of an awkward space by giving it function. As seen on HGTV's Design On a Dime, the slanted ceilings in this attic bedroom created a hideaway nook with no real purpose. By adding wall-to-wall shelves and a desk, the area was immediately turned into a private office. This new space adds value to the home and is a feature potential buyers are sure to remember.
This nook, with its long, built-in bench and floor-to-ceiling wall cabinets, blends function and form for a interesting design. Resembling a small French or Italian flat, the room is pleasing to the eye but can be used as practical working or dining space.
On episode seven of HGTV Design Star season six, contestant Kellie redesigned kid Mason's bedroom. Mason can use this private under-bed area to kick around the soccer ball or relax with a book. "It's the only space in the room I kind of like," says judge Vern Yip.
This small vintage kitchen showcases a modern flair, from the brass hardware on the classic white cabinets to the gas range. Dark slate flooring pairs well with the tile backsplash and marble countertops that wrap from the farmhouse sink to the oven.
