Here's a bathroom idea that maximizes a small space by combining the sink and the tub. 'It works by employing a removable sink insert that empties into the tub, which is in turn angled to help drainage. The lip of the tub, and thus the edge of the sink, is tall enough that it comes within range of the height of a standard sink basin, about 32'. The sink reminds us of tub covers we've seen in Japanese bathrooms. The design could also facilitate greywater use, if you use a mild, plant friendly hand soap.
When Steve and Sherrie moved in to their new home, the dark kitchen was in need of a facelift. The appliances were new and the cabinets were in good shape, but they knew they could turn the rest of this dim log cabin kitchen into a bright and happy place. Amazing work! We especially love how they managed to keep the cozy vibe of the log cabin while making the kitchen so much more modern and user friendly. We painted the cabinets, reconfigured from a u-shaped kitchen to a floating island, added butcher block top to the island and granite to the remaining cabinets. New lighting, new hardware, and two custom pieces - the pantry and the plate rack. It took us 3 months and $3500 to make it work for us.
Hi AT,. Virtually everything I read about arranging bedroom furniture insists that that the bed should face the bedroom entrance, and especially that you don't want to present a side view of the bed. I am not willing to be shredded by shards of falling glass when the next earthquake comes, and I have windows opposite the bedroom door. If I put the bed against one of the side walls, then my husband and I have to play leapfrog to get in and out of bed.

You might find it interesting that Feng Shui adherents prefer to keep the doorway within sight while sleeping, but the end of the bed must be out of doorway alignment. Lying in bed with your soles directly facing the door is called the coffin position....because the dead were traditionally carried out feet first. We're not slaves to Feng Shui or any other space planning philosophy, but we do find that the 'Coffin position' can give us the heebeejeebees. It seems your problem is its own solution: sleep sideways, be earthquake safe, and don't worry about anyone's rules,.

The only area I am having trouble with, is a place to sit and eat. I was hoping to stumble across a small, rustic, wood bar table at some point, but I can't seem to find ANYTHING that would work. I know that I would like to place it on the other side of the refrigerator, opposite wall from the couch. There is a good amount of space for a small table and 2 chairs. I know that I would also like for it to be bar/counter height. I like the feeling of sitting a bit higher than the couch, which would be directly across from the table. I can't seem to find anything that doesn't look too shiny, too big, too thin, plastic and wobbly, too expensive, or likely to topple over from someone leaning on it. I've even considered building my own table but I don't have the means. All I am looking for is a tall, sturdy, small table, preferably all wood and nothing fancy. Any suggestions or ideas on where I should be looking? Anyone have any suggestions for a 'Rustic wood bar table' that fits Haley's style? We're not normally looking for 'Rustic' items, but think maybe this Macon Small Spaces Table & Chair Set may fit the bill, in size, style and affordability.
The rail supports multiple cabinets, and once it's level and fixed to the wall, there's no need to individually align and level each cabinet. We were able to hang each cabinet in a matter of minutes, but because we had to modify several cabinets, it took most of the week to get all of the wall cabinets in place. In order to fit the cabinet around the pipe, we had to remove an entire rear corner of the cabinet. The cabinet looked a little unstable with a missing corner, but once we got it in place and attached it to the wall and the adjacent cabinet, it ended up being pretty sturdy. The blind upper corner cabinet, made by attaching a panel to a 30-inch cabinet. IKEA offers a diagonal corner cabinet, but I prefer the more streamlined, right-angle look of the blind corner cabinet. IKEA doesn't make a blind corner upper cabinet, so we attached a side panel to a 30-inch cabinet to convert it to a blind corner. The only upper cabinet that we haven't installed yet is the nine-inch cabinet to the left of the range hood. Since IKEA doesn't make a nine-inch cabinet, we'll need to cut a 12-inch cabinet down to nine inches.
Q: I've lived in the same apartment for four years now, and I'm finally getting tired of the sun. My apartment has floor to ceiling windows, and the blinds that are on the windows do not block the sun at all. I generally sleep from 4 A.M. to 12 P.M., so much of my sleep consists of the sun beaming in. How could I possibly block the sun with these huge windows? I've searched the internet extensively and have been unable to find a solution. Editor: Leave your suggestions for Cody in the comments - thanks! Have a question for our community?

A nursery based on a soothing neutral, like taupe, can also be appealing. Case in point - this beautifully decorated nursery featuring taupe as the primary color. We like the taupe on the crib and dresser/changer as well as the creamier taupe on the walls and carpet.
