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.

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.

Functional Open Concept Kitchen and Sitting Area

The Williams family asked Chip of HGTV's Elbow Room to design them a family friendly, functional kitchen. Chip included a ton of seating for this family to entertain, a study area for the kids to do their homework, as well as a beautiful muted brick fireplace. The natural elements in the room, such as the exposed wood beams and molding as well as the natural light that pours into the room through the spacious windows in the sitting area help to create the rustic, natural look the family was hoping for.

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)

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.

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.

Open Concept Living Space

To open up the Parkers' living space, Chip and his team from Elbow Room took down the walls separating the kitchen and dining room from the rest of the house. Then, Chip added tons of seating to the space, making it the perfect place for relaxation or entertainment.
