board to fit that space?...love it!
Currently I have a small separate kitchen and living room space. How do I renovate
renovate this space to equal one big open concept kitchen living area? Where do I start?
Perhaps we could use our desk space differently? I big armoire-size built-in on the right (e.g. liguor cabinet? Office supplies?) Then desk on the left facing the family room. No corner piece.
I like the idea of the desk space remaining counter height and in a different finish than rest of cabinets in kitchen to define the space.
I still like the idea of using cabinets and a counter top to make a desk type area
9. Desk. A counter and place to sit turns a command center into a place to get real work done. This is a great use of space in this dining nook area. The cabinetry gives contrast to the command center.

Like the extending clothes line; use when needed; fold when not in use
Folding/retractable clothesline - would take up very little space on wall
Rain barrel and general level of space
own garden, a designated flower arranging area is a delight well worth making room for. Clear off a bit of table space, gather your favorite tools and containers, and get to work!
8. Use a wooden one to harvest rainwater. Companies like Aaron's Rain Barrels repurpose old whiskey barrels into rain barrels
smaller items. Don’t just assume there are only a few standard clothes line styles out there. Do your research! I like how the owners have also used the space below as a gardening station. I bet when this clothes line is retracted against the wall you would hardly notice it.

Drying rack, use of space above machines
Good use of space on left
use of counter space over w/d
This design nicely uses the space above the machines for a drying rod set at about 76 inches (193 centimeters) high. A tilt-out frame with more rods provides a drying rack for smaller items. Some newer washers and dryers stand taller than a conventional 36-inch-high countertop, which can work to your

Love them! Great space saver!
What type of lighting was used in this room? Love to see some Mason jars.

What finish did you use for Snowbound 7004?
I wish I had the space!
the cool colors and materials used
love that the drying racks won't take up floor space
Double upIf you are lucky enough to have lots of space, then go all out. Drying racks are great side by side, but can also work with one placed above the other.
Fit wall-mounted racksFold-down drying racks are a much more efficient use of space than floor- standing ones. Fit one above the sink so

Like the look of the tiled wall - what tile did you use and size. Thanks!
Good use of small space. Built in table
Use of wood table, great with the white cabinetry
Simple design, well rationalized. Space for persons to sit to engage with the cook or have an informal bite/cup of whatever. Also like shelves.
If space is tight, use a cozy corner for a counter-height table. This kitchen is too narrow for an island, but a unique kitchen table is "attached" to the counters in a space between the kitchen and living areas. It's a very efficient use of space and perfect as a party gathering spot or for the Sunday
Here stainless steel is an accent finish, used in subtle ways rather than covering all of the appliances.

I wanna know what is the light color gray paint in this picture i use behr all the time what is that color name.
Dresser - So I see you bought and painted the dresser. Can you tell me what color yellow you used? And did y
warm and cool grey hues with contrast of white...and minimum use of yellow...gives clean crisp look that's comforting.
deepest grays exude a feeling of elegance, and they create a striking contrast when paired with white or vivid colors. Tip: Bright yellows are commonly used with charcoal gray, but try experimenting with other unexpected hues such as lime green, cranberry red or burnt orange. Paint Pick: Gilbraltar 6257

Kiel's woodworking talents are in full effect in the kitchen. Rather than incorporate pre-fabricated cabinets into the newly rebuilt space, he decided to build them himself, affording the home the custom work that it so deserves. "It didn't make sense to put in the same fiberboard cabinetry that was
No cabinets. Free space to grab plates
Maybe we could use our old sink again even if we trashed the metal cabinets underneath?
I love having the pots above the sink! "Instead of installing prefabricated cabinets in the newly rebuilt space, Kiel created custom shelves. “It didn’t make sense to put in the same fiberboard cabinetry that was there before,” he says. The cabinets were left

Detail at Living Room and Loft Hall

Questions1
use of bridge and double height space
adding space with loft for books
with loft space for library above, storage around windows
maybe some empty space/shelving to place larger toys like a dolly house or her kitchen
lofts work most efficiently when one thinks vertically. A second-story ledge makes use of the tall ceilings by adding a small open library up top. Below, the floor drawers flanking the room make the most use of space.
