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.

Most stone floor tiles would provide a neutral base for the cabinets and future backsplash.

I would suggest considering loosing peninsula and extending the island. If I am understanding the flow of your home correctly that would pull the entire area together. Your island can actually extend and have a curve if you like that look.

Just to make sure I understand your dilemma: You have a 15 x 15 room that you want to transform in a full bathroom and also have a walk-in closet, right? Is this an empty room that you have the flexibility of adding the plumbing anywhere?
We need more information such as where is the door? Do you have windows? How big and how high are they from the floor? Do you want a double sink vanity? Do you want a separate shower?

It is hard to believe that the dark cabinets we all installed thirty years ago are now being replaced by painted white cabinets. It is obvious now how much more open and bright this current style allows. Very nice work.

Vinyl siding requires virtually no maintenance but isn't anything appealing to look at comparatively.
5 hours ago   
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
hayleydaniels
Vinyl siding is a petroleum product so if your house catches as fire, the fire will burn a lot hotter as the vinyl prevents the heat from escaping as wood siding wood. The hotter fire results in greater damage to the home, and because it's a petroleum product, the smoke is much more toxic to breathe. My husband who has been a firefighter for 30 years told me this when I brought up vinyl siding. I've asked him how he knew all this, and he said from his training with the fire department.

The thing is, its a rental that is a litttttle over priced. its 2000 a month and its ugly as hell. Yes its ALOT of work i know. But i have to revamp the space so that i can get roommates in here that are willing to pay a higher price for a room. Im basically trying to make the place worth 2000 a month. He will pay for paint/ materials/a light fixture. My bf and i and friends will do the work. I know a lot could go wrong, but really there is nothing to loose the place is falling apart and ugly lol. My bf and i love the work, it builds character and gives us experience (we want to learn to flip houses)
The light fixture is being installed by my boyfriend. I have about a $100 towards the light fixture. Everything i purchase for this house will be used off of craigslist so I'm super budget friendly. The chopping block is my own expense and i will take it with me when i leave. The counter tops are gonna take a whole day to cover I'm sure, but Ive got time, and my landlords got the money. I work for an interior designer who explained that need to use premium paint and brushes to ensure it looks its best. It will take an entire weekend to do the cabinets. And another weekend to paint the walls. What do i do first? Paint cabinets or walls? Then do light fixture and counter tops?
HGTV is my favorite channel and I'm fulling aware of the risk but really this place has nothing to loose. Its already lost lol.

I found this stove hood that can be painted black? Idk. 40 bucks! cheap right?http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/app/4568539826.html
The back splash is probably not gonna happen now. Maybe if i find someone donating old tiles or something but thats not a big deal. Im being SUPER thrifty. This is an old house and it would look best with old fixtures and accents so it doesnt loose its "charm" lol.
This project will take me 1 weekend for the cabinets, 1 weekend to do counter top stickers and stove hood addition/light fixture replacement. And one week of painting walls every night after work.
As for fixing the spot next to the stove… Maybe just get some used butcher block and make a free floating cutting board shelf with a salvaged leg post with a little detail to match the gingerbread look? I think it could be an easy fix but if not Im not doing it…. The most important this is changing paint colors and i could live with the rest if i HAD to… But my goal is to make the place worth more so that i can rent out the rooms for more and make my rent a little cheaper.

Hi Villiche,

I own a kitchen and bathroom company in Northern Ireland, if it might help you-- next to the stud wall where you currently have the TV and tall glass unit, this should be a tall bank of units which includes an eye level oven and microwave, next to it would be your integrated fridge freezer and you also have enough space for a tall larder. Reposition the TV on the door wall which will still be easily visible from your sofa at present which should stay. You will not gain anything from going into the balcony with wall heights so low. You could if you want put a waste pipe on the tall bank of unit wall and put in an eye level dishwasher which would allow a hob where the existing oven is currently at which means under the hob you will have drawer unit. Hope this helps.

Regards,

Conor@ballycastlehomecare.co.uk

What they saying is to contact Homeowner warranty department, they have arbitration services and they will handle the issue for you and make the builder fix the problem if he is liable.
You should have a booklet that you get at closing with everything that covers under that warranty, contact information and there is steps you must take to arrange arbitration.
You will have a representative from warranty come out and they will notify the builder to be present there and they will inspect everything and go over all the issues... and they will make the builder make the necessary repairs covered under that warranty.

Good luck

Yes you can create a roof all the way across with the proper supports. That would create a nice lanai to use. You would just need to make sure your existing roof pitches are correct and then look at your options to tie in depending upon the width and pitch of the new roof.

Consider switching the piano and sofa by the window to create a more intimate seating arrangement.
18 hours ago   
Thank you for reporting this. Undo

I sees few issues - the piano and TV seating need their own separate areas, for starters. Having the other couch so close to the French doors adds to the clutter feel. I agree, try moving the piano, place the brown couch perpendicular to the Tv couch. You may try some fabric curtain window treatment over the French doors to remove that awkwardness of having the couch so close. I would get rid of the arm chairs for now (or own of the couches) and creating two areas in the room. Use two rugs to define the areas. Across from the large opening, where you have the piano now, get the equivalent of an entry table, artwork above, to help create welcome when entering the room, and the separation of the two areas.

Sorry for the crazy spelling! I would update the current window treatment with 2 or 3 inch white wooden blinds, or curtains. I agree cleaning up the TV Wall with a nice (but skinny!) shelving unit is a great idea. Suggestions by Interior (above) are spot on, which I see now after looking at the floor plan attachments!

Consider thick enough wood saddles in each doorway sitting on top of the subfloor as wide as the door jamb that will act as a transition piece. The bedroom flooring, and probably a bathroom floor would butt up to the saddle at a different height than the hall flooring. A small bevel on the high side of the saddle could be angled down to the height of the floor to finish it off. Stain it and it will blend in nicely. This is not an unusual condition and may be the least labor intensive approach.

Offices tend to the practical and pragmatic (unless you are in creative design). I prefer to see real (also very good for purifying the air and bringing in oxygen to those masses of little grey cells) so if possible and if it is NOT a burden, opt for real plants.

It is very difficult to pick out a carpet color from a computer monitor. I would suggest that you cover the pink stuff that is near the tile as the reflection gives the tile a pinkish cast. Then put your carpet samples near the tile and secondly near the fireplace as those are the two biggest focuses in the room. Choose whichever light color goes best with both. The carpet may not match both perfectly, but it is OK. When the furniture and possible area rug are in, it will be fine.

It looks like the bookshelves may be adjustable...if the current (or new) couch was turned 90 degrees and floated perpendicular to the fireplace on its left side, could the bookcase be moved to the opposite wall between the windows with the TV and components on it? That would eliminate the little round table from the middle of the room, or could be used as an end table. The other seating would face the fireplace all anchored by a new large rug. And ditto the comments about replacing the formal window treatments with new lighter panels that extend to the floor.

I'd go along with the idea to hire an architect and/or designer, depending on how extensive your plans for the space are. If you're starting from scratch, create an idea book for the space, so that you have reference materials to show to whomever you are working with. Do keep us posted on your progress.
