No More Unused Space: How To Fit More Storage into a Small Bathroom

Tue, 30 May 2017 08:00:00 -0400

When it comes to small space living, making the most of all of your available space is everything. Not everyone has sprawling bathrooms with expansive storage closets, but no matter the square footage you have available, we promise, you can make it work. All you need to do is zero in on the often underused spaces that you might be overlooking. There are opportunities to maximize areas that, at first, might seem unusable, but with a little bit of imagination you'll quickly realize they carry some potential. To get your storage expansion going, here are some ways we found that take advantage of unused space in bathrooms – take a look - some might just fit the bill for you...

Real Life Solutions: Lessons from Well-Organized Closets

Mon, 29 May 2017 13:00:00 -0400

(Image credit: Esteban Cortez) Have you ever been jealous of someone's closet? I don't mean their clothes or their shoes, but their actual closet space—as someone with a tiny closet full to the brim with luggage and clothes and shoes, looking at house tours and seeing other people's closets look so beautiful and well-organized definitely makes me a little envious, and I know I'm not alone in that.

A Minimal, Modern Custom Kitchen That Looks More Expensive Than It Actually Was

Mon, 29 May 2017 08:30:00 -0400

There is lots to love about Aine and Eloise's East London home. The way the floor-to-ceiling doors open up fully, connecting the home to the outdoors. The soothing neutral color palette punctuated with colorful accessories and word art. But of all the elements to drool over in their house, the kitchen deserves the biggest spotlight. It's not only stunning in its simple beauty, it was completely designed by the couple — and the renovation's final cost is shockingly affordable.

Beds are Going Lower & Lower—Do You Love (or Loathe!) the Trend?

Mon, 29 May 2017 11:00:00 -0400

I think it safe to say that, while we're probably at the height of the bed-in-a-box phenomenon, beds themselves are at an all time low, literally. Many of the popular sleep startups' mattresses don't require a boxspring, and a bunch of new bed frame designs are basically hovering just a few inches above the floor or right on top if it, a la this Lonny bedroom. So what was once the look of college crashpads is basically now high design. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this.

Goodbye Boob Lights: 15 Stylish, Modern Flush-Mount Fixtures — Annual Guide 2017

Mon, 29 May 2017 14:30:00 -0400

We've all seen them: the dreaded boob lights, marring apartments and builder-grade homes everywhere with their unrepentant mediocrity. If you're a little bit handy you've probably replaced one, or thought about it, but then you probably ran into the same difficulty I did when I started looking for a fixture to replace the boobs in my own apartment: flush-mount fixtures can be really ugly. If the room in question doesn't have the head room for a beautiful chandelier with a two-foot drop, finding the right fixture can be a real challenge. Where are all the nice-looking flush-mount lights? Surely, they have to be out there...somewhere, so we decided to do a little hunting, and here's what we found. READ MORE »[...]

Before & After: A Colorful Update for a Cluttered Kitchen — Sweeten

Mon, 29 May 2017 14:00:00 -0400

Prior to the renovation, Cybele described the kitchen in her Park Slope apartment as "Functional, but...a little worn". It was still getting the job done, but the kitchen had seen better days. There were giant holes in the walls behind the cabinets, the electrical was outdated, and a dark countertop and backsplash sucked the light out of the room. The mosaic tile floor, with its miles and miles of grout, was a nightmare to clean.
