Houzz Tour: A Contemporary Home With One-of-a-Kind Features (21 photos)

A large Moroccan rug cozies up and defines the living room space. The mix of textiles and textures includes the woven stools and handmade wood coffee table base. The armchairs are vintage; Wood had them re-covered in a gray and cream fabric.

To the right is the kitchen, and the outdoor space visible here is the private front courtyard, which creates an atrium. Past the courtyard is the home office. The house opens on three sides to the courtyard, which offers a delightful outdoor spot for coffee in the morning.

An Industrial Home With Warm Hues

Designed by Dmitry Sheleg and ZROBYM Architects, this 280 square meter interior in Minsk attempts to shatter the stereotypes associated with industrial-influenced interiors while still embracing the features that make the style so popular with modern design fans. It maintains the mainstays of industrial decor such as the extensive use of unfinished concrete and exposed ductwork but makes a more comfortable impression thanks to its warm color theme and comfortable furniture choices. If you’ve been looking for a way to combine urban sensibilities and traditional accents, this interior is definitely work a look.

Luxury Homes That Take a Different Approach To Open Layout Design

Although more common in small studio apartments, even sprawling interiors can benefit from the sense of freedom an open plan layout allows. Hosts can prepare drinks while keeping up with the card game raging at the coffee table, parents can catch up on their favorite television shows while keeping an eye on kids doing homework at the desk. It’s great! But total openness does have drawbacks: lack of space to hang artwork, fewer walls for shelves, and even increased ambient noise. These stunning luxury homes offer a smart compromise with dividers and creative layouts – solutions that work for smaller homes too.

Your Guide to a Beautiful, Efficient Laundry Room (8 photos)

Key measurements to know. Laundry rooms have four primary areas and functions: entry and prep, washing, drying, and storage and ironing. It’s important to allow sufficient space for each function, so that your space — even if small — does not feel inefficient or cramped.

You’ll want to allow at least 42 inches (107 centimeters) of width between opposite cabinets and walls. Washers and dryers that are placed side by side are typically designed to fit within 60 inches (152 centimeters) of width, although some manufacturers make smaller machines.

Cabinets for laundry spaces come in standard sizes, like kitchen cabinets, with a depth of 24 inches (61 centimeters) for the base and 12 inches (30 centimeters) for the upper, and a width from 9 inches (23 centimeters) to 48 inches (122 centimeters), going up in 3-inch increments. Custom-made cabinets can be any width, but you will save money even with custom-built units if you choose the standard widths. Our guide provides you with the key laundry room measurements for creating a well-laid-out space.
