You have a great start!

Add some patterned pillows on the chairs & sofa, and add a textured throw blanket to the couch. Great ottoman, too! Looks like you have a baby, so at some point when you don't have a curious little one, you could put a colored wooden tray on it for some added punch.

Good luck!

Your funiture is lovely. Some suggestions: wondering if your couch would be better under the window and the two chairs opposite. Add an area rug to ground the space and some pillows on the couch that compliment colors in your curtains. I might move the table that is under TV to where the railing is and add a nice ornament on top and perhaps a lamp. It was too small where it was located. You could think about making that wall more interesting, so that the tv doesn't feel like it is dominating the room. See pictures for ideas. Enjoy your new home.

I agree with Brandi! I have a friend with a similar style house with the most charming orange front door! It stands out from the rest of the houses on her block on a great way. It's a muted/pumpkiny color. Here's an inspiration pic!

You need bright color! If blue, then let it scream blue.

I agree with Brandi - orange / amber -ish door. Cut back boring shrubs. Put FLOWERS in garden. Colorful pots on the front steps. Are those window boxes? Then put flowers in them!

Larger molding in a style that compliments the house around the front door would focus the eye and add interest. As well as stair railing.

And a larger porch light, too.

We do agree with all these colors, We love these house with Orange Amber or Red. you would have the contrast between Door, Door Frame and Stair Railing.

All of these colors are beautiful and elegant, but the most important thing is the rest of the exterior !! Are you willing to change window frame colors as well, or changing the stairs stone to the darker or lighter.

Hi again!

I like the idea of using the same tile for both the shower walls and your bathroom floor, since those larger format ones are so similar - really just off by a few shades colorwise. So here are my two favorite combos:

1) Light gray tiles for shower walls and bathroom floor (stacked). Hex tiles for shower floor. Larger vanity.

2) Dark gray tiles for shower walls (brick pattern). Hex tiles for shower floor and bathroom floor. Larger vanity.

I'm not in love with the smaller more industrial looking vanity, just a personal preference.

6.5" on each side may be a little too much, but not necessarily. You could think about adding some industrial shelving in the leftover space to add storage and complement the stainless steel vanity. However, the second vanity looks more like a piece of furniture, and you mentioned your preference of that being the case. Also keep in mind cleaning the area between the vanity and the wall could become a hassle if the space ends up being just a couple of inches.

In defense of the contractor I have gotten tile from HD that did not truly repeat. I first thought that the tile setter used a part of a sheet to go to the next row but that would not account for the error. Neither flipping the top or bottom would give this error. This does not account for the contractor missing the pattern mismatch. He should have put the bad aside and only put in the good tiles.

Well, the floor needs to come up and get redone. I tend to stay away from small dots and patterns, since they tend to be too stressful to the eye, nonetheless, unless your tile installer was a Professional, he most likely took the tiles out of the box and installed them without regard to the pattern, which gives this tile the peculiar look. Even though the tiles most likely were 12x12, what I believe he did wrong, was to move the tiles around instead of just taking them out of the boxes and lined them up. Remember, you always get what you pay for and this is an unfortunate mistake, which I dont believe neither you nor your husband would have noticed until the job was completed.

Thanks all! With your help, I think I've decided to go with a very dark purple in semi gloss or gloss finish. This should give me the drama of a black door, but a little hint of color once people come up to knock. Will have big red pots by the door to give me an additional pop of color. I'll just have to save the red door for my some day lake house (a girl can dream!).

I don't know which one gives you more space, but we used Kohler Archer undermounts in our master bathroom. We have a little bit of Craftsman style to our house, so lots of straight lines. We felt it was a good fit. We did use the Archer soaker tub too, to keep things consistent in that bathroom.

One thing to be aware of, there is a bit of "reveal" to the sink - see photo if you don't know what I mean. It's a rim around the edge that sticks out before the side walls of the sink go down vertically. It hasn't been difficult to keep clean, but it was a bit of a surprise.

Hello! You could go with the blue/grey color and maybe look for a linen-weave curtain in a medium blue (not too light or dark). If you want to be bolder, then you could go with a burgundy with a bit of beige/gold pinstripe.

The mirror is a good size for the defined square that it is in. Maybe add another element in the squares next to it to balance it out.

Is the room always so dark or is this picture taken at night? My first thought was that there's no layering of color or textures. My second thought was that the dark furniture feels too heavy & matchy-matchy.

My suggestions:

Get rid of current sofa and get one larger couch in a lightish sold color.

Get two coordinating upholstered chairs in a pattern with some color.

An end table that can double as a stool or some of those "poufs" that you see in stores that can be brought out for extra seating.

A round or oval glass topped coffee table to add some lightness and offset all of your straight lines.

Artwork can be figured out after furniture colors are chosen, but perhaps a large mirror on the long wall (over the couch? Still need to see additional room pics) to reflect some additional light.

Hi, S L. I feel like the room needs a rug and a larger couch/sectional. Art centered on the wall. Pillows, throws, etc. all those things that add texture and color. Some beefier tables and gorgeous lamps too. I attached a few idea pics. Not the same layout as yours but you might get some ideas for layering color and texture. I like the apple green on the dining table. Good luck!

I don't see the point of two islands. It just seems like more things to navigate around in the space. Obviously I can't see the orientation of this room within the house and how it's connected to other rooms in the house, but one large island that runs parallel to the long counter with the perimeter sink makes more sense to me.

It may not be for me style wise, but I can see how the 2 islands in this kitchen can function well. Both islands have easy access to the sink for clean up and prep (assuming there's rubbish bins built-in), and multiple cooks can work without obstructing flow (lots of ways to get around=no one in the way of others). Single large islands also have their charm, but you have to walk around them, which may not be efficient for prep and cooking.

Hi, this is a photo of our kitchen we fitted about 7 years ago. Oak worktops, black gloss cabinets and no wall units to make it feel more open. I appreciate this is far from country style, but it is just really to show you a different colour and style with oak. We loved the oak and it was very easy to maintain provided you use Osmo top oil and don't let water sit around the sink for too long. Good luck!

Go for it. If you love the color you won't be sorry. Does the patterned chair have other colors in it? If so, add other items in those colors as accents. If not, it seems everything except for the blue is neutral so you have many options to add other colors. If you can't decide what looks good with it, find a multi colored pattern you like (with the blue in it) and then add in the other colors from the pattern.

It doesn't really sound "vibrant" but colourfully muted. As you don't have a raging pattern going on on the main piece of furniture you have more flexibility to adapt over time. Personally, and like the others, I find robin's egg blues and teals wonderful colours to work with greys and browns. If you can, try to add some dark brown wood accents in the form of picture frames or even a side table to echo the dark leather chair - it will help tie in the room visually.

A lot of people are doing this. They are posting this more as a dilemma. The consensus seems to be that you can do this as long as you have another tub somewhere.

I have seen many new master baths recently. The memorable ones are the ones with the big deluxe showers. You really notice when someone crams in a tub that nobody will ever use, into a space that could have provided for a great shower.

Good luck!

I agree with the thicker toe kick to cover the gap.

I would address each area separately with thicker kick base to match your cabinets.
The kitchen supplier would supply the matching solid "furniture kick" solid or veneered wood 4 1/2" x 8 ft lengths x 5/8" or 3/4" thick finished on three sides. Their installer puts it in. You can expect a bill for $300 to $1000 more. This should come out of the GC's contingency fund. (hopefully there is one)

In your case you could run this solid kick easily along the front of the sink run. This will cover the gap easily. It reduces the toe kick space slightly - nothing noticeable.

The island is another matter. I would remove the end panel and have it redone. Make the panel the exact same size as the end of the run within 1/8" and then wrap the island in the furniture kick. Or just double the panel up, but the rest of your kitchen has single panels.

This kick can be just a square eased edge - not carved or decorative to go with your design.

At the oven - again put a solid kick flush with the side panels - you don't even need a toe kick there. DO NOT run tiny trim moulding round the bottom -its not the way to handle it.

There might be some other areas that each need to be address individually. Like the fridge area: you may need to have some of the floor redone there, perhaps take the fridge panels off and get new floor put down in that section and then shorten the fridge panels and reinstall them.

Its not the end of the world, this can all be made to look great - then enjoy your new kitchen for many years to come!

If your choice was for floating flooring then the cabinets go in first. If your floor is a 'permanet' installation (glue/nail/staple/grout) then this could be a mistake by the GC.

That being said there are many fixes to this. Chat up your cabinet makers and see if they have a ready made solution. Somewhere, somehow they have come across this. You may have to wait a few weeks while they manufacture/stain/ship the product but they should have a solution that doesn't look like an after thought.

As for "cost" to fix this, it depends on who chose the floor and which format of installation was documented for the floor. Floating floor chosen by the contractor who FORGOT to inform/tell the cabinet maker...might mean costs are covered by the GC. Anything other than this scenario may fall to the owner to purchase/cover costs. If you chose the floor and the floor is a floating floor, the cost to purchase "finishing" materials may fall on your shoulders.

There are so many different variations to the theme of "who, what, where, when and how" that it becomes extremely difficult to assess blame and therefore assess costs (at least on a forum which has less than 100% of the information - a legal team may see it differently...I don't suggest you go that route).

I do agree that the measurements for the flooring+dishwasher be reassessed. I've seen dishwashers get "painted into a corner" like this and the counter top had to be sacrificed for maintenance. Again, it comes down to who knew what and when. The counter top installers would have been told to incorporate the height of the floor + dishwasher clearance to ensure the dishwasher can come out without having to cut the counter top. Without this basic knowledge (which I have to remind installers on a regular basis) the cabinet/counter top installers have nothing to go on and therefore they do not "add" anything...because no one told them to.

The granite is lovely. Saying it's too busy is like me telling a minimalist that their décor is harsh and uninviting. I would never be so presumptuous since it's all a matter of individual preference.

That said, I would choose a simple subway in one of the lighter colors in the granite which will still contrast with the cupboards.

Hello- The edges of any counter, no matter what the material is, can be vulnerable. We have fabricated many counters like the one pictured in residences and restaurants and have not had any instances of breaking or chipping. I'm so glad you like our glass - It's beautiful, doesn't take up a lot of visual space and is so easy to maintain. Thanks for your question!

nothing wrong with whats there now, just dont do matchy matchy mirrors, and get cord cover to run the black cord to the cable box. i would paint the wall too. more contrast.

That sounds logical. Is there a sink or cooktop in the island? If yes, you might consider how important task lighting might be and rethink how you lay out the lighting.

I agree, sounds like it would work.

If you want traditional with a twist, then perhaps you would like the lighting to be the 'twist' by choosing something less traditional?
