Airy Small-Space Home Office

Even the smallest corners can transform into productive work areas. Smartly placed shelving adds storage while a desk and rolling chair anchor the office nook.

Outdoor Entertaining Space with Many Uses

As part of the Pearson home transformation in Atlanta, Georgia, licensed contractor Chip Wade designed a custom wood couch on a track that allows for moving the couch from indoor to outdoor. This seating option allows for either space to be a place to relax. The Pearson home renovation also included a fire pit, lounging areas, a grill area and game lawn, as seen on DIY Network's Elbow Room.

Storage Table Wine Rack

A long storage table turns this awkward wall into a functional space to store books, wine bottles and tabletop accessories. A bar stool fits under the unit to create a makeshift desk, and colorful art and a wooden sculpture hang above the table to add interest to the mostly neutral space.

Outdoor Space for Creating

The Schroeders wanted a place to play and be creative together, so Chip Wade and his team from Elbow Room answered the family's requests. He created gardens throughout the space so that the family could spend time together in nature. The crew also included aspects that the family enjoys, such as a chicken coop, a hammock, a fire pit and an art studio.

Eclectic Concrete Fireplace

Contemporary White Entryway With Console Table

A sleek Parsons console table and a classically-curved lamp keep this entryway, designed by HGTV's Chip Wade, host of Elbow Room, simple yet modern. Family photos add a little personality, while wicker cubes provide clutter-free storage for odds and ends.

Master Suite with Moveable Bed

The bedroom utilizes the angled roof line to frame the moveable and convertible bed and is accented by bold blues and gray colors. The bed can be place at the headboard/couch or placed in front of the window for a beautiful lake view. After the master suite renovation by licensed contractor Chip Wade, the Van Hattum's now have a beautiful master suite and bathroom which combines their love for the old world style and modern conveniences in Atlanta, Georgia. Before the renovation, the previous homeowners left a half-finished suite, an angled roofline and lots of unused space, as seen on HGTV's Elbow Room. (after)

White Contemporary Shelving Unit With Steampunk Clock and Rolling Ladder

These shallow indented shelves are perfect for decorating around the large, steampunk-style clock in this contemporary scene, as seen on HGTV's Elbow Room. The black, gold, silver and copper on the clock create an industrial look against the traditional white and gray painted shelving unit. A rolling ladder is a unique addition and allows access to all levels of the display.

Versatile Kitchen with Something for the Whole Family

The kitchen, designed by Chip Wade of HGTV's hit show Elbow Room, has created a lot of elbow room for the Williams family. The curved countertop adds a perfect nook for a rounded kitchen table with room to seat the family. The study area in the corner makes the perfect place for the Williams kids to study and do their homework, while the brick oven and modern appliances make the kitchen any chef's dream.
