I would rather find a vintage piece and have it redone.

Pocket doors are a great design feature that can help open up a room with limited space. Pocket doors can add style to a room while also providing privacy to an area.

We use either pocket doors or surface mounted doors on exposed tracks, depending on the application. I love the look of the exposed track hardware, but you need clear wall space to the side of the door opening in order to make it work. The door then becomes a design feature. A pocket door essentially disappears when open, so you can create a greater flow of space.

if space allows, two dishwashers are better than one. i vowed when we moved i'd have two, one on either side of my 36"' farm sink. i spec'd a double bowl in my first house and i hated it; i couldn't stand that i had to soak a roasting pan on my counters. and yes, i have drawers galore!

It's hard to think of "dream kitchen" at the stage of completion pictured. The kitchen is sufficiently functional to be able to add to the article's part on good ventilation. A well matched hood to a range is analogous to a car's exhaust sytem- the better the exhaust, the better the car runs. A very pleasant surprise is how much easier it is to clean up after stir-frying when compared to our previous down draft venting. Further, when you realize how much aerosolized crud is sucked up by a good hood, it's easy to see the need for the exhaust to go outside the house. Imagine all that crud in your attic. Also, DW is way happy c a large cutting board.

Very clean, almost too spare. I would love to do a mosaic treatment on the fireplace wall that is just screaming for some creative detail.

I do wonder about the apparent lack of screens in some of these photos. Opening my sunroom to my patio, while aesthetically pleasing, would result in an influx of flying insects almost immediately.

I would like to see ideas where there are TVs that may be the focal point BUT not necessarily located on top of the fireplace as I mostly see.

I love the idea of creative backsplashes, but I've seen very few I could live with for long. I'm a bit of a commitment-phobe, so I'm considering a modular, remoable backsplash that I could change out when I'm tired of it. I couldn't care less what future owners might like...it's myself I'm worried about!

Sealers or no sealers, I just don't understand how these are kept clean? I'm not a germophobe and I don't care about disinfecting, but how do you prevent the cracks and ledges on those rock walls from looking dusty all the time? You can't wipe them down.... Maybe an air compressor would blow it out?

As pretty as all this looks, I will never have natural stones in a bath area again. Perhaps in other areas, but never in a shower. I have river rocks now and yes they are sealed, but it is impossible to keep them free of soap scum. If you have light colored ones, you probably wouldn't see it as much as the dark ones I have, but it would still be there and I have found absolutely nothing that takes it off. A friend of mine has big rock walls in her shower and has the same issue and those are even harder to keep clean. She has to go after it every so often with some kind of industrial cleaner to keep up with it. Nice on any wall that isn't in contact with water, but very difficult to deal with otherwise. I try to never leave negative comments about any one suggestions, but felt compelled to add this bit of reality.
