Do the kids use the living room as their playroom? Stop the constant struggle to clean up these items and put them where they "belong". Instead work in some permanent living room storage space for toys crafts games and so on. If you need to make room first take out items that are not frequently used in the living room. Books that you want to keep but that no one is likely to read again anytime soon could go on shelves in a bedroom for instance.

"We like to use frameless shower doors for a couple of reasons" says Mariette Barsoum of Divine Kitchens. "With a frameless door there's no visual separation which make the space larger.

Our washer and dryer are concealed behind bifold doors and while we will replace the cabinetry when we renovate our kitchen the layout is the bee's knees. It allows for us to store our cleaning supplies with our laundry supplies in a central location.

Kitchen and bath specialist Robin Rigby Fisher explains that "this kitchen sits between an original 1918 Craftsman formal dining room and a contemporary family room.

Even in a more upscale design scheme distressed cabinets lend a casual air that can't help but be welcoming.
