Very nice design. The Burled Walnut on the regrigerator is a nice touch. It helps break up the mass of the cabinets while complementing the colors.

Funny story about a house we bought before construction. The model home had beautiful french doors and we asked for the same style in our house. No problem since we were the first home in the development. We took pictures as the foundation, walls roof, etc were finished. Just after the French doors were installed in our house, we stopped by the model home which now offered only siding doors as the exit to the patio. After asking about the change, we were told that the French doors would have to be an upgrade for new home buyers because they were too costly so they had put the French doors from the model into our house. Unbelievable, how the developer hoodwinked so many. They didn't last long.

Lisa,

Are those Ikea Lidingo kitchen cabinets in white with raised panel used for your closet? It looks like mostly tall pantry cabinets. If so, how were they outfitted to accommodate rails to hang clothing, or are there mostly shelves.

Thanks for sharing. This bath and closet renovation came out great!

Looking at the 4th photograph reminds us that using multiple square pendants over an island is not a great idea because they almost never line up exactly.

I love the idea of having a "hidden" light fixture in the kitchen. It's so cool how the pans camouflage the light itself. Neat design!

scoutstella, that's probably what I should do, although most kits don't come with the pressure regulator, timer, or filter. All essential to really use the system effectively. Those items will at least double if not triple your initial investment.

Well, we had a "professional" landscape gardener put our drip hoses in and they fell apart by the second year, now she want to just put in a overground hose with a sprinkler, I feel like she doesn't know what she doing--you guys here make it seem so much simpler than she has, should I get rid of her?

I too have a small backyard and I think I can use some of the tips mentioned in the ideabook. But I think you have made use of too much of hardscaping which needs much time and efforts. Anyways the ideas were great. I would love to incorporate at mine.

Undoubtedly so!

But, like houses, one person's dream may hold no appeal to the next person who comes along.

I've built wine cellars the size of bedrooms with elaborate cabinetry and chilling systems for wine enthusiasts, $100k kitchens for cooking nuts, $300k backyard makeovers for folks who like to entertain outdoors. These individuals considered these features to be "critical" to their enjoyment of the home.

To most of the people who would be interested in an elaborate garage, features like those above might be considered "ok" if they were already in place when they bought the house, but certainly not warrant the expense of adding them after the fact. But, to someone who's interests like in areas typically associated with a garage, having adequate space to enjoy your hobby is very important.

Frequently these interests also tend to be gender specific. From the feminine perspective it "just a garage, what's the big deal"? But to the guys, it's their place to escape, pursue their passions, entertain their buddies.

And as in all other areas of living space, careful planning can make a huge difference in the enjoyment level after the money is spent. Those few extra feet those guidelines add may make 10% difference in the cost of the structure - and 100% difference in the enjoyment level of the user.

I love Stainless steel appliances and are what house buyers look for right now so that is what we chose. Our new perimeter cabinetry is off-white and the s.s is a nice contrast to so many cabinets. Island is dark wood. We had white appliances before for about 19 years that were due for an update. Wanted a French door frig, an induction/convection range, a wine frig, range hood, deep, single bowl sink and a microwave that was not always positioned above the range.....all in s.s.

I find it makes no difference in cleaning white vs. s.s. Husband leaves food prints on both. Cabinets too. He tries to be neat.

I think it is the "how to" and interactivity of this thread that has made it so interesting and useful. I bookmarked it because there are many suggestions I want to keep. (Formica Calcutta Marble, Bon Ami, SCRUB, SCRUB, SCRUB!) Everyone has been so generous sharing. Thanks!

Thanks minperkins for that thought. I was thinking about that as I looked at all the pics with washer and dryers that had countertops built in. It locks you in to certain dimensions of washers and dryers.

my laundry is at the back of the garage - attached to the house but accessed from the sliding door in the family room, across the patio and you are there, approx 5 steps. I have at times wished for an internal laundry but have been grateful for my external laundry many times. The dog food lives there, the dog sleeps there, small garden equipment lives there (secateurs, gloves, weeding fork), chemicals live there. I can dump muddy sports gear, soiled linen when kids were sick, soak clothes in the tub and it is all away from the rest of the house. Last week when the tap had leaked from the washing machine it meant I didn't have a wet soggy inside mess to rectify. Living in NSW Australia I rarely use the dryer - mostly hang washing under cover of pergola - doesn't get wet if it rains, doesn't fade in the sun and can stay out for a couple of days if I am busy and don't get back to it. Sometimes it is just too hot and bright to be bothered going to the clothesline in the backyard. Love the smell of washing sun dried - very lucky that I am able to this.
