The simplicity of this bathroom is the perfect contrast to the stunning views. By sinking the tub into the floor, the designer allows the bather to feel as if they are washing off in the still waters of a lake. The wood features in this bathroom mesh well with its views, letting you feel at one with the surrounding woods.
We all need a little industrial chic in our lives. The tray top is removable for when you crave breakfast in bed. The table, available in an antique bronze or brass finish, works well as a nightstand for a small space because it can be folded up and stored when not needed.
The next step is to determine how much work, cost and house renovating it will take to convert your attic into a master bedroom. For older houses, the heating, ventilating and air conditioning will have to be run to the attic and possibly plumbing pipes. For many home owners, the expense of having to run new services to the attic is minimal in comparison to the benefit of added space and functionality. Before you get started, ask a contractor or a home improvement professional to assist you in estimating the costs. Remember return on investment (ROI) could bring you back more money than you invested into the initial conversion.
A living room needs to be a place where families can kick their feet up. Where they can convene, entertain, and enjoy each other. But for those people who pride themselves on design, it also needs to be able to tie a home together. In these 25 living rooms, modern concepts take precedence with sleek sofas and towering windows creating a heart for these homes.
Since attics are at the top of the home, the option for natural light should be priority. While many homes don't have skylights, other options such as dormer windows which are located in the walls of the attic, as opposed to the ceiling, and even solar tubes can be installed to bring light into the master bedroom attic space. Along with natural light, views to the outside should be considered, as humans thrive on seeing daylight and fresh scenery daily. Take full advantage of the height and the views, you are at the top of the world, literally!
In the spirit of highly individual design, the 'Be Yourself' contest, brainchild of industry leaders, challenged visualizers to create the ultimate bathroom. This concept by Deluxe Home Creation Studio was the viewer's favorite and it's not difficult to see why. However, starting with images of grandeur is not such a bad idea. Even for a personal/residential project it is possible to gain inspiration from images such as these and scale them down to fit comfortably within standard spaces, keeping elements such as a simple water feature or simulated rain shower as part of the fundamental ideal.
Shades across the brown spectrum may not be the first thing that pops into your head when you imagine a trendy kitchen space, but this design has sandwiched a few together to great effect. The T shaped kitchen island is a really nice touch too if you have that kind of floor space. Sweet pink and blue color pops are the focal point in this culinary scene, placed upon a pretty rug that you might normally see in plusher parts of the home.
Here's another kitchen that uses wood, this time as a point of warmth among an otherwise cool-toned white and black theme. The inset lighting above the range matches well. White geometric patterns catch the eye immediately! The shadows between each panel compliment the black breakfast bar, grey chairs, and black backsplash.
Finding the right pillow — as well as sleeping on the wrong one — can be a real pain in the neck. Ironically, choosing your perfect pillow can force you to sacrifice precious sleep as you peruse the far reaches of the internet in the night in search of the right one (we've all been there).
If you have the space, float a dresser, cabinet or desk in the room with enough space to open the drawers on one side and with the back of the furniture piece as your headboard. The best part is that you can sit lamps or other objects on the dresser to shine over you when reading in bed. If you're dresser back is unfinished, paint it or line it with wallpaper.
