Dytecture


Business Description
(Bachelor of Environmental Design Studies, Master of Architecture) Residential Designer with focus on Renovation, Infill Housing and New Construction

My design style is contemporary with clean lines. Every home should have a space where home owners are proud to show guests. It is my intention to find or create such a special area in each of my designs with any types of budget.

It's a rumpus room -- whatever that is :-) Who cares about the carpet. Pick something you like. I'd choose one of the lighter colors from the carpet for the walls.

Doubtful - and why would you push out the peaches? the home would do better with just 1/2 acre for house and pool and consider a farmhouse in the vernacular style- less expensive to do right than the mediterranean and more charmingly appropriate when it is done .. .
go to the library and read some susan susanka books - she is an architect that writes compellingly on proper interior fittings . . - do you need 4000 sf? how many people will live in the house? assume for a nicer custom home $350/sf but some of this relates to how many bathrooms, what level of kitchen appliances - Pool alone is going to eat $50 - 100 k of your budget and permits/ site utilities sewer hookups another $50 - 75k . .. this budget needs to cover engineering, grading, all (unless there is a house standing - even a little house will make the whole endeavor a lot cheaper because you have site utilities

I divided my room in half as I wanted two colors so I put the lighter color on the largest walls, and the darker color on the walls with the window, closet and door. I'm very happy with how it came out. I might add that each color has adjoining walls.

It looks like the real "useable" space in the LR is rectangular.... they must be counting the hallway area to get the square shape. Could you put the area on graph paper-- 1' =1 square and then cut out your current sectional and set up. You should be able to find a workable solution.

I think you can really switch it up with white cabs and medium level flooring in a brown/grayish tone (stay away from reds/orange tones) to complete the transitional/modern look. The airy feel to the white cabs will be well grounded with a medium depth stain. I would go a snick lighter than what is on the floor now (half step lighter) but in the caramel/walnut tones instead of red/orange on there right now.

Thanx. I do like the idea of white cabinets but where the floor is concerned I was thinking more of a very dark grey or brown. Will the dark floor close in the space too much?

I just removed quite a bit of chair rail myself. I really like the look better but just be aware that it might require mudding and sanding in spots if you decide to take it down. Mine had been up for 20 years and even trying to take it down carefully still pulled off parts of the Sheetrock underneath which had to be repaired in addition to the painting. Good luck.

Looks like you could really use some colour in this space. I would start with some faux greenery then add something bright. You could buy coloured glass vases under $10-20 at Winners/Homesense, then add tins from your local Dollar Store. While a home is meant to be a place to re-charge oneself it is also where we want to have happy gatherings, great conversations and deep thoughts. So many of the currently popular decor colours are just plain making us as boring as they are.

Since it will be undermount, stainless will be safer. Granite sinks can be damaged more easily. Wouldn't want to have to replace an undermount. Do some research so you know for yourself the various pitfalls of the different materials.

If you want to go with a dark gray [or any other dark color], consider doing a lighter accent wall simply to help lighten the room up later in the day. I painted my living room a dark grayish green that I absolutely love, but by mid afternoon in late summer, the room was so dark I had to turn a light on. My solution was a light colored accent wall on the largest wall in the room, and it made all the difference in the world in the feel of the room.

Don't be afraid to use a dark color in a small space. It's much worse to have wrong -scaled furniture or bad lighting in a small space. Try chartreuse with the dark gray for dose of color. These colors look great together.

Tile breaks because someone drops something on it (bowling ball), it's not properly installed (voids in the thinset), or the substrate moves enough (slab cracking, wood floor sagging etc).

Having a perfectly level surface is not at all important.

Consider a tile shower floor sloping to a drain -- not level.

Consider wall tile -- not level.

People sometimes confuse level and flat.

I could tile that bowling ball (not level or flat) with small tiles, and it would be fine.

What tile needs most is a stable surface and a competent installer.

Technically yes...but "should" you? No. Only as a last resort...and only after sinking the old tile in cement (you make yourself a new "cement" subfloor) and then tile over that. And then you might still have issues.

Eight feet ceilings have been, and in some place continue to be "the norm". If the situation of the house is ideal and you love the rest of the house...there should be no concerns. My husband is 6'4" and part of the ceilings in our rental home are 7ft. He doesn't even flinch (but I do...everytime he walks under that area).

Good news is: no problems painting the ceiling!

I personally love higher ceilings. I have 10 ft. throughout my current house. However, we have 8 ft. ceilings in our cabin. They do make the house seem cozier, but then the rooms themselves are small, so I think that makes a difference. If you have large rooms with lower ceilings, it might seem a bit claustrophobic for taller folks?

Option B is the best way to go, you have your pantry for storage and you have a counter space next to it, which you always need.
Open shelves don't belong in that area and they create an eye sore, especially when loaded. Cabinet above the counter and ref panel on the counter side is the way to go. If you have a counter on both sides, use ref panels on both sides.

Good luck

I say do what makes you happy and not what the house history dictates. Why live miserably with a part of the house's style that you could change?
It looks like in the living room you have painted crown moulding too.
Personally, I'd first paint the walls an off white, where they don't look yellow.
The other issue is lighting. It looks like it only has one lamp. One with more substantial light, and some table lamps on a buffet would help. Then go from there.
