Modern Style Kitchen Island

All-Access

RMS user njhaus had more in mind for this modern kitchen remodel than fancy appliances. \"The kitchen was designed with my husband in mind, who uses a wheelchair. We lowered the counters to make it easier for him to reach the cooktop. The lower counter at the island is table height so he can wheel right in. The features are integrated seamlessly (without) being obvious or less functional for everyone else.\"

Neat Bathroom Sink

Asian Inspiration

RMS user DesignRemodelVA overhauled her bathroom using river rocks for the backsplash and shower tile pattern.

Old Fashioned Bathtub

A Better Bathroom

Even though RMS user ljyajima says updating this bathroom with a larger shower, soaking tub, double sinks and semi-private toilet area was a difficult feat, it looks like just the place to relax and recuperate.

After Remodel of Home Exterior

Exterior on a Budget

RMS user Perri's tight budget didn't prevent a great paint job and accessorizing for the exterior of her 60-year-old beach house in California.

Peaceful Backyard

Outdoor Living

To better enjoy the Colorado countryside, RMS user Mtn Livin re-created this 1,200-square-foot patio area to include a fountain, seating area and built-in grill that combines reclaimed barn wood with a granite countertop.

Steel Oven and Exhaust Fan

Complete Kitchen Update

RMS user Uptown Foursquare took two years to complete this remodel, but he pulled off a total transformation. What was once an awkward room full of outdated appliances is now a modern cook's dream.

Shower Tiles

Terrific Tiles

After gutting the former shower unit, RMS user jprs22 installed an oversized and completely tiled shower.

Contemporary Kitchen with Marble Island

Big Kitchen Remodel

RMS user mcdanny18 redid this '80s-style kitchen on a grand scale. The new two-cook kitchen is packed with luxury features, including white granite countertops and a warming drawer, plus two dishwashers, two copper sinks and two refrigerators.

Compact Kitchen

Small Kitchen

RMS user Perri says her new open-plan kitchen with an island is \"barely recognizable\" compared to what it once was: a white closed-off room she didn't enjoy at all.
