Better Homes and Gardens asked readers what spaces they plan to add to their homes this year. It seems that folks are once again dreaming and planning to improve their homes this year after 2 years of waiting.
Although it didn’t exactly make the list, I have been dreaming of a new mudroom. I live in an older home – built well before the days of organized, spacious mudrooms with built-in storage and closets. Instead, if you walk into the back door of my home you land squarly in the kitchen. I constantly battle with a pile of wet, muddy shoes, baskets of hats and mittens, and coats layered over the bench.
My dream is to add a mudroom on to the back of my house. I have it all planned – in my head, at least. And, I don’t think it would be horribly expensive as far as additions go – no plumbing or basement required. But, oooooohhhhh, would it add to the function of my home and efficiency of my life!
What spaces are on your must-have list this year – or next? Leave a comment here – I enjoy hearing about your dreams, too!
I am excited to announce that I have a project featured on the homepage slide show at Ava Living! Continue reading
Not every interior design project needs to start from scratch. On one of my recent projects, my clients were happy with their master bathroom and kitchen backsplash tile. However, they wished they had added more detail to the tile when they built their home originally.
That’s where I came in! Instead of tearing all the existing tile out (why would we, when it’s in great condition, they still like it, and it’s expensive!) we simply removed specific tiles and replaced them with glass accent tiles.
Now, there was still a fair amount of noise and mess involved with the project, and not all of the tiles removed from the walls did so in one piece. Since the homeowners had extra tiles stashed in their basement to replace any casualties, we were set to give the kitchen and master bath a fresh new look!
The bathroom tiles are glossy, contemporary glass mosaics. The kitchen backsplash incorporated rustic glass tiles with slate. When I get photos of the kitchen backsplash, I will be sure to post them for you.
For minimum investment of time and money, my clients are in love with their home all over again. Let me know what you think – gets your wheels turning doesn’t it?? This could be done in your home, too!
