I agree that the rooms do seem confining. Would you consider moving the television to a location in the side of an island like the following and then supplanting the current pantry/banquette for a layout like this:

The actual hanging space takes up a 24" space. You need to leave at least another 24" and preferably 30" to walk through the closet to select clothes that are hanging there.
If you haven't already had double rods installed on most of your closet space, that would add greatly to your closet. Below is a photo showing double rods.

Looks good, but I would also like to see a photo after you pull carpet more to the center of the room along with the furniture.

Like to see the chairs at least have a couple of feet on the rug along with a small table by each to hold a drink.

A quick thought: Increase the depth of that half-round space in front of your door. Push it forward enough to accommodate a new feature piece. For instance, pave the newly enlarged "patio" section with Blue stone or brick, install a water feature (fountain) or a piece of statuary in a small reflecting pool. Don't go overboard. In other words keep the item in a French country style like a bronze deer, birds or urn. Avoid something too overblown like a statue of Venus! Add a light or two and then border the area with some flowers like Lilies or
Purple sage.
Last, repaint the front door in a stronger color like Red, Coral, or French Blue.

I also agree with Dytecture. I would search different review sites to find a highly reviewed designer Home Advisor, Facebook, The BBB to name a few. A designer would be able to take all your wants and needs and create a beautiful design just for you. A typical landscape design will run $300- $500. We are a big fan of pavers and I would recommend looking at Belgard in there inspiration catalog.

Stainless steel would tie in with your appliances. What finish are you going with for faucets, decorative lights, etc.? Try to tie it all together if you can. Polished chrome can be nice as well as long as you don't mind cleaning, but then you might want to think about cabinet fronts on the appliances.

All cabinets and everything in your home is determined by building codes. They vary from state to state. Research (google) a manufacturer in your area. They will have measurements of their product according to code and standards. Anything else is custom made and costs a lot more. These measurements are created for safety and usability. Any different dimension may fit one person but not another. Therefore altering the comfort of use. The standard in the industry is usually easy to find as most companies will have a PDF of measurements to print out.
This info is also available from your local building code department.

Grab the cushion/pillow and head out to the rug store. Let the experts find it for you, that's what your paying for. I'd aim for a solid colour since the room has so many different colors of furniture. brown or rust seem to be the strongest accent.

Agree with Karen. Finding a rug online will be quite a challenge, but I am sure there are some houzzers up to it. Anyway, after you find the rug, could you consider painting the coffee table? It doesn't fit with the floor. I like the funky, country style. Especially the pics on the wall.

Gas is superior for range top cooking and electric/convection ovens are best. Gas allows for greater temperature control (searing, simmering, etc) while electric ovens heat more evenly and maintain a consistent temperature.

A solarium which may also be known as an orangerie, sun room, conservatory, Florida room, or various other names, is generally built to face South so that it gets sunlight throughout the day. Placing one on the North side of the house dooms it to being in the shadow of the house throughout the day.

Most modern solariums are built using double or triple pane windows for insulation and to help avoid the extremes in temperature they can have. Basically they are a greenhouse and can get extremely hot in summer or extremely cold in winter, which is why many people do not have them open to the rest of the house all the time since they eat up heating and cooling expenses. At the very least they should have a door and a separate climate control system.

I've been collecting an ideabook of solariums and sun rooms if you're interested:

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
groveraxle
I agree with Dytecture that a scale floor plan will be your best bet. You can use the Icovia planner here: http://roomandboard.icovia.com/icovia.aspx

It allows you to create a room to your own dimensions, add windows and doors, and to adjust the sizes of the furniture pieces you place in the room.

Also, for aesthetics and comfort, you really need to get the furniture off the walls. Find a way to float your seating in the space. You might leave seating on the wall where the red couches are now and float the rest around it.

An area rug will help to define the conversation area. Get one that's large enough to put the front feet of all your furniture on it.

Start with a simple pencil sketch of the lot with the home floor plan. Compile photos of rooms that you like using an Ideabook here on Houzz to share with design professionals.

Research architects to find a good match to fit your needs. Architects have the incite to help you select the construction professional that should also be a good match.

Plan, plan and then plan more! Changes during construction are usually costly.

Sorry, here are some floor plans: existing, option 1 with new bedroom connected to existing master bath and option 2 (in two images) with redoing kids bathroom and having new bedroom without connected bathroom. I should also note that part of the dilemma is that both the kids bathroom and existing master bath were redone 10 years ago and still look brand new with custom cherry cabinets, granite, Grohe fixtures, etc. (not totally high end but more than just serviceable...). Option 2 would mean demo'ing all of that and us being with only a half bath for some period of time and doing two bathrooms and an addition is more expensive than doing one bathroom and an addition. Option 1 would allow us to have use of a full bath throughout construction and basically seal off the entire construction area (i.e., minimize disruption). Decisions, decisions.

I thought about replacing your dining set, but it took an hour just to replace your light. The electrician could have done it faster. (Of course, he wouldn't have to reface the cabinets, which are beautiful, BTW.)

I think a black table and chairs would be striking here, and I also like the nautical style pendant shown below.

Plan, plan and then plan more! Making changes during construction will cost you more. Sometime the contractors see changes as profit centers for their business. You are already their customer so their price goes up. Hiring another contractor, of a like type, could create issues on the project.

Be comfortable with the architect and contractors that are selected for your project OR continue to look for different personal. Actually talk to past customers and review their work. This is you home so be happy! Negative energy during the building process maybe remembered when you sit down to relax after moving in.

Make a room by room 3 ring notebook with photos and a list of the rooms needs.

Hope this helps! ClearLED.biz

Wow - that is awesome!! the only thing about moving the door to the longer wall is that it will then open up to the kitchen - that's where the bathroom door is now (YCCH). The closet door opens up into a hallway - that is where I would like the entrance to be with the window on the opposite side. On the OTHER long side it abuts the stairs going to the basement where my laundry is now (double YCCH). I just can't visualize it...your drawing was a big help!!

Your room has great basics, I suggest you go and find a patterned fabric to do your window covering,with flowers, leaves etc... with colours you love , that will give you the base for the choice for your wall colour, go on the pottery barn site for a start , they have great ones, any of the whites you mentioned would do for the walls, but the look needs some shaking up a bit , the fabric will also give you ideas for cushions a few in the same fabric as the drapes and some solid colour ones for others. Then some art work and accessories and it will look fabulous , good luck !

This space looks like it has a lot of potential. Though painting/staining cedar fencing can look great, another option is to let the cedar weather naturally. This requires much less effort and money, and the cedar will turn a beautiful silver grey tone which would work well with your stone patio. Also, achieving this look can be sped with various stains which may add further protection to the wood. Beware that any application you put on the fencing and planters will require regular reapplications (anywhere from annually to every few years).
I hope you enjoy the space.

Great question. I care about the carpet, it can be expensive, I was looking for a neutral dark beige and wondered about it being too light for family room (rumpus room in Canada). I wondered if brown carpet was a trend not necessarily timeworthy. ( remember 70's brown shag) Suggestions for colours and brands very welcome. Thanks for your post.

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

Bathroom mats for placing in front of the vanity, not the toilet.

No it's not spam--this really happened and I admit I thought it was lovely and cozy back then. Ha ha ha
I do remember kitchens and baths being carpeted to be a safer alternative for elderly people to avoid falls. That carpet in the bathroom was small enough to launder regularly and it kept the toddlers from slipping on the tile floor. Dang. I'm going to talk myself back into that stuff. ;)

Usually the first wall the meets the eyes would be the accent wall, but there aren't any set rules.

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.

I love what you did with the fountain on the table. All the lines being square.

So ParrotUncle, what is the story on this setting. Is it a client and you want opinions, a picture for your project book?. It makes a difference - being used in real life or to show off your light.

Perhaps the TV wall unit would have an 'office' area integrated as well.

What about a shallow u-shape in the bedroom? Long tables on window wall and 36" table/cabinet/shelf unit turned perpendicular at each end.

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.
