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 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.

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)

Modern White Kitchen and Dining Combo

This modern white kitchen features dark wood cabinetry and white decor with hints of color. Its large island and dining table offer plenty of room for cooking and entertaining. Modern light fixtures illuminate the space and compliment the overall design. White tile covers the far wall and adds an interesting visual element.

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.

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.

Herringbone Glass Tile Backsplash

Glass tiles in a herringbone pattern create a statement in the new, open kitchen.

Old Barn Converted Into Grand Living Room

Licensed contractor Chip Wade of HGTV's Elbow Room converts a barn into a large open great room with soaring ceilings. Green-striped chairs and a white sofa bring a contemporary element to the space, while the stone fireplace and paneled walls preserve the history of the barn.
