  • Simple Pleasure, My bathroom was tiny and the space was not very attractive or functional.  There was empty space behind the wall in back of the toilet so we used that space to install custom cabinets.  We splurged on some must haves and accessorized with great bargain items.  The pictures on the wall were photos which I put into frames that I had stored  away for years and the accent tiles in the shower area were a bargain at the tile store.  To keep it cohesive I went with a square theme from the ceiling tile design to the knobs on the cabinets and stuck to all matching fixtures in an antique bronze finish.  My favorite splurge was the countertop which I fell in love with because of it's unique quality and design. My son did all of the work, so of course it makes my little spa-like retreat even more appreciated.  It is still small but at least the space I do have is being used more efficiently and everything can be neatly put away.  It is truly my Simple Little Pleasure.

  • Cooking up a little something..., This is our flowing and open kitchen/dining room.  We haven't really done a lot in this room, but add my little touches of "personality"!  At some point we would love to have granite counter tops, but wonder if it will add charm and value?, Kitchens Design

  • The Dead Zone with a column, My house has an awkward dead (unusable) space, between the kitchen and living room.  There is a column (weight supporting) in the step down living room and the two steps into the living area, that leaves a 13 X 30 dead zone in the middle of my house that I cannot figure out how to use.  We have lived in the house 3 1/2 years with a kitchen much smaller than the dead zone @ 14 X 12 kitchen...this is so frustrating as we are a large family (6) that cooks everyday.  Also, there is no pantry and few cabinets, so I have stuck shelving in my laundry area, so I can barely get in there to unload the clothes.  The back side of the stove and refrigerator backs up to the back of a fireplace chimney, and an awkward sitting area (because I simply do not know what to do with the space.)  Any suggestions/help would be so welcome., Kitchens Design

  • Turn of the 20th Century Kitchen, The kitchen for this 1908 home was last updated in 1979.  There is no storage and no counter space.  I need to convert the eat-in area into usable space while maintaining the old world charm., Kitchens Design

  • Not enough usable counter space, My home was built in 2000 from a local builder's design. I love to cook with friends but the kitchen is only large enough for one person to work in there at a time. Never realized it was going to have insufficient space for preparing meals, storage and cleaning up until after it was built and I began using it. All prep work has to be done on a small island in the center of the room. I'd like to figure out a way to expand the counter space without spending a fortune or having to gut the kitchen. I like a country cottage style using natural and eco friendly materials and  paint colors. There is a lot of natural light in the kitchen/family room combination with a wall of windows and sliding door to my patio and backyard. I love the space and spending time there-it just isn't user-friendly for cooking and entertaining., Kitchens Design

  • REPURPOSED storage BR into a sitting room , Experimental Space gets some love…  Unused (STORAGE) bedroom gets some long-needed attention.  Now I CAN use it and I DO!  Took some chances!  
One month makeover (1/10-2/9 except for curtains hung today 3/23) is my 'working person with no helpers' version of what they do on tv...  

If you have a room like this was (who doesn't - the door is always closed, right?), an overhaul is like getting an addition to your house, without the expense and trouble.  Reclaim the space!, Other Spaces Design

  • Kids V's Adults - Who wins?, I need some advice! Half our room is a kids play area and half is 'ours'. Except we've never used this room, even since we moved in. It's more like a walk thru from the front door to the kitchen. We never quite figured out what to do with it. We used to have a dining table where you see those hanging lights. Opps! I'd LOVE to have it a a usable space for both of us. , Living Rooms Design

  • Kitchen in need of HELP!!!, This is a very small kitchen in need of desperate help. It lacks color and usable space for pantry, pots & pans, dishes and pretty much everything. It does not have any counter working space. The brown table in the center has been in the family for more that 30 yrs. We would love to keep it in the kitchen. The chairs can go just to give it a modern contemporary look. We don't like anything in this kitchen. It's an open kitchen concept, open to the living room. , Kitchens Design

  • Makeover 911! Needs to be Usable Space... HELP! This is a HUGE emergency..., This is our basement in our new home... it is unfinished, and not a very good space! It needs to be turned into a usable space, and we need inexpensive ideas! I'm thinking Entertainment area... pool table, movie area w/ a futon, wet bar... and I'd like to close off the utility area for the washer & dryer with a closet type space... I'd like to go ahead and tear down the poor dry wall job that was partially finished... we're thinking wall paneling..., Basements Design

  • Master Suite - Contemporary remodel, We changed what was a Master bedroom connected to a Master bathroom into a full Master Suite.  We took up the carpet and put in cement floors, we took out the large window and put in french sliding doors to give access to the deck and the backyard. The firplace is open to the Master bedroom and the Master Bath and we put in grey/red glass and took out the gas logs.  We took the bathroom down to the studs and moved the toilet and took out the bathtub and made a his and hers (his) bathroom with a full walk in showers on both sides of the back wall.
The final part to this Master Suite is the bed- we are using a make shift bed for now as we work toward our dream (and final piece) bed made of iron (cost for bed is $3,000.00) after spending $32,000.00 on the Master Suite makeover it will take some time to get the bed. 
I am posting a picture of the bed so you can get an idea of what the final room will look like. , Bedrooms Design

  • Crawl Space Turned Studio!, Creative use of 4 foot tall crawl/storage space.  Formerly our storage -  area you have to climb up and in to get into. I needed a studio space.  Living in the city and abutted by other buildings...there was no where else to look for extra space!  So with 4 feet of unimpeded head room (5 feet between floor joists – I can stand up straight!) hobbit hole studio space was created!  It has a window, running water, electricity, lights, storage between heating ducts, my bench, work surfaces, anvil, kiln, tools....and all seats on wheels so you don't have to stand very often!  You can roll from station to station! Just remember to climb up and crawl in!  Believe it or not - it works really well!, Other Spaces Design
