I am accumulating ideas to incorporate into a whole house remodel of a 1940s brick story-and-a-half. The house has a very small footprint that I would like to preserve so clever built-ins will play a big part in the plan for the sake of efficiency and to add design elements that are currently missing.
Compact shower - nice proportion on niches - divided
Nice idea - what about ease of service?
Attractive folding surface & storage
Depth of trim around windows - cabinet face configuration
Deck with architectural roof - open - clever canvas curtain
Deck - better view of roofline and curtain - outdoor fireplace?
Low maintenance flower bed - nicely tiered
Understairs - back view with cubbies
Gable end storage to flank upstairs double windows in bedroom - also good bathroom storage for either side of shower/bath in a low, wide dormer addition
Shallow pantry - sliding barn doors
Clever transom treatment & narrow porch - consider for dining room addition.
Kitchen/Dining room divider idea
Fireplace surround - architectural
Interior door with lights
Discreet, multi-function workspace - allows computer to be in high-traffic space - could adapt to kitchen
Stacked w/d - doors pivot back into recess for clearance - good design
Panels on desk disguise items you need often
Nice color scheme - accent tiles - cupboard & countertop configuration
Transoms over French doors
Small scale lunch bar
Pavers on narrow grass path
Adding eyebrow windows to south-facing roof & extending roof over front porch - good way to handle possibility of dormer addition showing over existing roofline - looks pretty natural
