My clients came to me about two years ago wanting to update their tired and dated bathroom. They needed a better function, layout and look to work for their family of 4. So after mapping out their floor plan, I went to work changing up the layout. Instead of having a separate tub and small shower, I decided to make better use of the space and add a tub/shower combo. In order to get the tub/shower combo in the space, we needed to move the toilet, which luckily wasn’t too much of an issue. I knew my clients were desperate for more storage because one of the first things they told me is that they have been looking for sheds for sale as they have nowhere to store anything. Adding this tub/shower also gave us the opportunity to help solve that problem by adding some much needed storage in the bathroom, which they had a serious lack of to begin with. By switching the toilet to where the tub was, we were also able to gain extra space to include a 48″ vanity, which was a great change from the pedestal sink they had been use to using. Another change we made to the space was vaulting the ceiling, which created the illusion of much more space in the bathroom. Since we vaulted, we were able to add in a skylight to make the bathroom feel nice and bright! Scroll below to see all the before and after shots of this bathroom remodel.

Today I wanted to talk about a design trend that is popping up in kitchen design and it’s the kitchen ladder. Now I wouldn’t say it’s a 2018 Design Trend, but I would say that I’m seeing ladders more and more not just in home libraries but in kitchens as well. You might think, “why would you have a ladder in the kitchen?” and in most kitchens it wouldn’t be necessary, but they prove very useful in kitchens with cabinets that go to the ceiling and where the ceiling is taller than normal.
Scroll through below to see some beautiful images of kitchens with ladders and maybe it’ll have you considering one in your next kitchen!

A new year means new design trends and one design trend that keeps popping up is green kitchens! Although white will still reign supreme, green is gaining some traction. Last year blue kitchens were hot and this year I think they’ll get replaced with green. Now I know what you’re thinking…. “Green? Really? Isn’t that so retro?”. Well I’m here to show you some green kitchens that are very modern and now and maybe I’ll be having you change your mind! If you are thinking about updating your kitchen, then there are plenty of other things that you might need to consider changing as well. For example, you might be thinking about what is the best kitchen faucet? However, no matter what you decide to do to your kitchen, the decision is up to you.

If you don’t want to commit to a full green kitchen, incorporate open shelving to break up the design, or go with two tone cabinets using white on the top. A farmhouse sink would be a fabulous choice to help bring everything together. You can also add in a different color island, such as black or wood to break up all the green.
