  • Phase II - Zen Deck Transforms City Alley from Wire Nightmare!, Space is limited in the city so I was challenged with how to turn a city alley into the zen paradise I wanted.   It started with building the actual deck above a garage and turned into my first attempt to put all the knowledge I gleaned from HGTV into practical use.  I can't thank HGTV enough for showing me the ropes!!!, Outdoor Spaces

  • Whistle while you work..., This multipurpose room is seen directly from our small galley kitchen.  As the kitchen has an elegant wine bar feel we tried to make this laundry/utility room feel more like an old world pantry. The dry good jars are real space savers but don't let the bagettes fool you - they’re fake! Baskets hold everything: detergent first aid aprons light bulbs extension cords etc.  We leave the door open more often now which makes the kitchen feel like it has a bit more square footage., Closets & Utility

  • casual chic dining, This room is the first one you see when you enter my house so I wanted it to be beautiful.  I love chandeliers, and I love dark woods.  I went monochromatic and started with the chair fabric, then went on from there.  I know the chandelier is too low, but I hung it before I added the crystals and they were very long!!  I just haven't had the desire to move everything and get it raised... maybe soon :), Dining Rooms

  • Horizontal Striped Hallway, It was time for our hallway to get a make-over! It was fine before - nothing really wrong with it but nothing really great about it either! I decided to keep the existing color and add 3 nine inch stripes in a shade two colors down on the color swatch. I love how it turned out and even better is that my kids love it! This is the hallway that everyone enters when school gets out so it needs to stay functional  for coats hats scarves and backpacks. Now it just feels more fun and contemporary!!

  • Small Bath Oasis Transformation, Our "basic builder" bathroom previously consisted of a 5x8 space with your basic, boring white vanity, white tub, and white cheap-o tile, and boring wall paper.  We were inspired by several of the bathrooms we saw on this website plus many HGTV shows that gave us the inspiration we needed.  We wanted a contemporary spa feel with modern amenities.  Although our space is small we took advantage of the high 9' ceiling by running the tile all the way to the ceiling and installing 4" recessed lighting.  This really draws your eye up!  We used 18x18 tiles on the wall, 6x6 on the shower floor, and a great 1" tile around the vanity and toilet.  It's actually a mix of glass tile and slate.  The vanity, sink, and faucet were purchased on-line and the mirror was cut locally to fit the exact space.

We are thrilled at the transformation and can't believe how much bigger our 5x8 space now appears!

ADDED INFO-- Thank you all for the kind comments, we are amazed at the feedback!  Thank You!  Several questions have been asked about the cost and materials, so here's the info....

COST-- We loved the comment about estimating the cost at $40,000.  Actually, it cost $8,000 for everything.  

DESIGNER-- Someone asked if we hired a professional designer.  Nope.  We are addicted to HGTV and picked up lots of tips and ideas from the show (esp. Candice, Vern, Angelo and David Bromstad) and this website.  We purchased all of the materials ourselves.  We did some of the work ourselves and hired a great contractor for the tough stuff.

FAUCET-- Purchased at ExpressDecor.com for $139

VANITY-- It's a Decolav vanity (5510-ES) that includes the sink.  EveryVesselSink.com for $900

TILE-- All purchased at Expo (Isn't it a shame that they are all closing!).  1x1 Glass Tile/Slate were the most expensive of all of the materials!  $32/sf.  From Oceanside Glass Tile (glasstile.com) it's Geologie High Desert.  The 18x18 shower wall tile is from Daltile (5202 Golddust) @ $2/sf.  The 6x6 shower floor tile is CTI Tile (Rex Shabui, Charcoal Black).

MIRROR- cut locally and custom frame from Aaron Brothers.

PAINT--  Sherwin-Williams (SW6078 Realist Beige).

Thanks again for all of the kind remarks!  If we can do it-- so can you!, Bathrooms

  • Northwest Contemporary Kitchen Remodel, We purchased our outdated 1964 home 10 years ago and have been remodeling it slowly. We recently finished the kitchen/laundry addition. One of the main drawbacks of our home was the fact that there was no laundry room. The washer and dryer were previously located in a small closet off of the main  hallway. 

After much thought, we decided to include the washer/dryer in the new kitchen area. We'd seen this many times in European homes and decided it would be a good fit for us as well. So far, I've really enjoyed it. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and it has been really handy! Also the high counter tops over the washer/dryer makes a great buffet area, easily accessible to the patio area (coming soon...)

By far, the most difficult item for me to pick out was the counter tops. I really love the look of cement but was nervous to use it because it's not as durable. After months of looking at different materials we finally decided on quartz counter tops by Caesarstone in Raven. Hard to tell in the photos, but it's a very soft black/deep gray. We went with stained concrete for my table though and I absolutely LOVE it! In fact, it's my favorite part of the kitchen!

I've spent countless hours both watching HGTV and browsing here on the website getting ideas for the remodel. RATE MY SPACE was the source of much inspiration and I've been looking forward to finally adding my own photos to it :)

Our goal was to create a warm, cozy kitchen area that all four of us could enjoy. Used warm colors to help counter the LONG, gray Oregon days. We're happy with the results!

Thanks for taking a look :)

  • Joeys Small Bathroom Remodel, Glass tiles Vessel sink Tub Surround. Entire project was DIY.  I tried to achieve the spa/hotel look and feel.WOW. Thank you everyone for all of your kind responses and feedback!!!The sink is made by a company named Suneli and I bought it from a local bathroom design store.The glass tiles go all the way to the floor and behind the toilet. I haven't had any problems with water splashing everywhere with this vessel. Thanks again to everyone on the RMS community.

***I found the glass tile from a local Classified ad here in Los Angeles. It seems to be different shades of olive green, sage, and tan. , Bathrooms

  • Modern / Industrial Kitchen Remodel, We started by painting the walls.  After 3 attempts at trying to find the right color we finally settled on Benjamin Moore-Kingsport Gray. We moved on to painting the cabinets black and changing out the hardware with pulls we bought from Ebay Store "Hinges and More".  We retrofit the kitchen sink cabinet to fit a new farmhouse sink.  We added under cabinet and overhead lighting.  We hired a fabricator to install the Giallo Beach granite we picked out for the countertop and the Bedrosian Ice Crackle MGICG2 Mosaic Glass tile backsplash.  I ordered the island/table from the IKEA - Udden Console.  By removing the backsplash on the console I was able to repurpose, what is meant to be a cabinet base, for additional workspace and seating., Kitchens

  • Disasterous2Glamorous-Living/Dining B&A, It's a good thing RMS doesn't have smellevision! This dated house was occupied by tenants for many years, and needed to be totally rennovated from floor to ceiling before putting it on the market. We removed the 70's railing,scraped the popcorn celings,retextured the walls before painting,added crown moulding,new wood floors,gave the fireplace a complete makeover,and really changed the whole feel of the house by opening up a wall with an archway. We couldn't be more thrilled as it sold the same day,with 15 offers and for $55k over asking price! We're still in shock!, Living Spaces
