When people think about storage containers, the image of large plastic or brown boxes pop up, since they are more economical and they function well for storing items we don’t need. The problem is once these boxes go into permanent storage, they don’t really get revisited again and they just keep accumulating. In this ideabook the storage containers have been given thoughts as to how they would fit in the decor of the room so that the things we use occasionally are still easily accessible.
1. Graphic paper covered storage boxes in this kids room with a colorful array of design. Having them placed in a random fashion add some fun while the colors coordinate with the toys.
My fiancé and I have hired an architect for our house (which is almost half done) but I’m having some trouble with the master bath. I’m worried that the bath will not get enough light and that it will feel cramped. Is there a way to work around this? Thanks.
We just bought our first house, we know it needs some curb appeal ! Thanks.
My home of 4 months still looks like a doctor’s office! We are having wood floors installed throughout. I don’t know how to make the living room area feel warm and open at the same time? This design is so confusing; thinking two colors from same family in LR but NO idea where to put which color. Shade of aqua maybe on long DR/kitch wall? Also no idea how to place furniture… maybe I am beyond help!
Looking for suggestions to give this room some life and interest. the leather chair in the showroom had a much shinier chrome look on the legs, envisioned it popping much more than it does. All the furniture is new except for the custom made bar. The side of the room that’s not shown will have a small table and 4 chairs for dining. I really like the cashmere throw and fur pillow and would like to try to keep all the elements in the room if possible, hoping to get some ideas for additions to the room.
We just purchased this home and finally made the decision to paint the oak cabinets and change the backsplash (neutral). The granite is black impala with flecks of a warm gray almost green in it. What color should we paint the cabinets? the floors will be stained dark walnut. I love some of the green/gray colors with a light amber wash. thank you!
House was re-sided with cedar shakes on three sides two years ago. They were left in their natural state and have aged over time and now need to be re-stained. Although it’s been two years, weathering has not helped them to blend. I’m thinking I will need to use a semi-solid stain on the three sides and a primer along with a solid stain on the back of the house in hopes I can get everything to blend. Do you think I should keep the cedar look or consider changing the color to gray? Thank you for your suggestion.
My wife and I really like this open floor plan; which combines the family room, dining and kitchen into one great room, however we’re not sure of the best way to make use of the space with furniture.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how you would arrange some furniture in the family room area and around the fireplace? We would like to have a flat screen above the fireplace; one that you can pull out and move left or right depending where you’re at in the room. Thanks!

We think a large deck at the front with sliding doors onto it. What do you suggest for cladding materials, window sizes and colours. The front faces a lake view
Here we go upstairs, wondering what is optimal layout for this Master bathrom 260 x 330 m (8.5 x 11 feet) Initial placement of sinks, tub etc. is from the architect. I thought it might be nice to have tub centered under the window. Don’t like toilette under window Would like to include some built in linen storage. Window can be moved in any direction to suit design and doors can be moved as well.
Directly attached is a smaller kids bathroom. It currently has only a shower for cost reasons (thought they could tub in our bathroom). Wondering if I should switch it to a combination shower/tub arrangement here although there are slanted walls to consider, note 1 and 2 meter marks.
Separate note- move 1.08 m closet to hallway area where there is more room (on other side of wall to master sinks.) Thank you for your input!
