How To Freshen Up Your Guest Bathroom Before The Holiday Season

The holiday season can be overflowing with love and loved ones, and for many of us that means hosting friends and family from near and far. Of course, we all want our guests to feel right at home — but what can you do when the guest bedroom and bathroom are a little less than welcoming.

While a new set of bed linens, a cozy blanket, and some pine scented candles should give your guest bedroom the warm touch it needs, the bathroom may require a little extra TLC. Freshen up your guest bathroom before the holiday season with these cheerful updates.

Replace your bathroom vanity cabinets.

10-26-18 WLC2-Society Shaker Dove Gray

If your bathroom cabinets are dated, it may be time to replace them with a new set. Bathroom vanity cabinets come in all sizes and finishes, so there’s no need to redo your entire bathroom. Browse online to find a set of bathroom cabinets that complements your bathroom tile and layout. If you need help finding the right set of cabinetry for your guest bathroom, let us help. We offer free room design to support you every step of the way.

Update the pulls or knobs on your bathroom cabinets.

If your bathroom vanity cabinets are still in great condition, you might just want to update the pulls and knobs. This is a quick fix that can really make the room feel more modern and new. Replacing the other hardware in your bathroom, such as towel rings or bars and robe hooks, is also a good idea. Metals can dull, tarnish, and rust over time, so swapping your hardware out for new pieces can really brighten up the room and give it some shine.

Add a fresh coat of paint.

Can you remember the last time your guest bathroom was painted? There’s a good chance it could use a fresh coat of paint. Buy some supplies and DIY this easy project, or call in a professional to get the job done on the fly. Either way, this update will give the room a much needed facelift.

Install a backsplash along the wall or above your sink.

10-26-18 WLC3-Greecian White Marble Subway Tile

If your guest bathroom doesn’t have a backsplash, consider this addition to freshen things up. Backsplashes are easy to install, and can add a pop of color or texture to the room. You’d be surprised how much this simple wall art can elevate your space.

Bathroom backsplashes come in a variety of styles, like subway, rectangular, and square. There are even tile backsplashes designed to look like wood. You’ll also find a variety of materials used, such as porcelain, marble, glass and ceramic. Choose a style that catches your eye and will serve as the perfect accent to your guest bathroom.

Give the room some flair.

Spa treatment with Christmas decorations

If the guest bathroom is lacking décor, incorporating one or two accent pieces might do the trick. Whether that’s an eye catching light fixture, piece of artwork, stylish chair, or a statement mirrors. Finish the look with fresh towels and special holiday touches, such as a festive shower curtain, scented soaps, or sprigs of fresh holly and evergreen branches in a vase on the counter of your bathroom cabinets. Give the room some wow-factor and welcome your guests when they come into town this holiday season.

Cozy Living Room Ideas for Winter

For many of us, the cold winter months means spending a lot more time at home. Whether that translates into you hosting friends for dinner and cocktails a lot more, having tons of game and movie nights with your kids or snuggling up with a good book and blanket on the couch every night, one thing is certain: Your home needs to feel cozy and inviting, and be a welcome respite from the chilly temperatures outside.

Keep a festive mood beyond the holidays by making your living room a place you’ll look forward to unwinding in throughout the winter months with our ideas below.

Comfy Rugs

While we love the sophisticated, clean look wood look tile and other flooring options create in a living room, they can be cooler on your feet. Rugs are the perfect way to make wood floors warm and welcoming without minimizing their appeal or style.

For the winter months, place a fluffy area rug on your floor to add warmth to your living room. To add even more coziness, toss a sheepskin rug over an ottoman or reading chair.

Cozy Blankets

Cozy throws or blankets are a must for comfort and warmth any time of the year. For the winter months, oversized, woven blankets are the perfect choice.

Soft Lighting

The right lighting can make or break the ambience of a room. To create a cozy atmosphere during the winter, it’s best to maximize natural lighting as much as possible.

When you do need to use artificial lighting, especially as the sun begins to set for the day, go for soft, warm-hued lighting in lieu of bright light bulbs. When possible, leave overhead lights off and use table and floor lamps instead to give your space a warm glow.

Warm Colors

Incorporate pops of warm, cheery colors into your living room with patterned or bright colored pillows. Yellow, orange, turquoise, spring green and other uplifting colors are perfect options. Feel free to get creative with other colorful décor, such as art, framed pictures and flowers.

Make the Fireplace a Focal Point

If you have a fireplace, arrange your furniture so that the fireplace becomes the center of the room. By bringing tables, chairs and sofas closer to the fireplace (and arranging them so they face it), you create a truly inviting and cozy spot, both for entertaining and for spending relaxing time alone.

Of course, going one step further and using your fireplace will make for the ultimate magazine-worthy cozy winter setting!

Seasonal Scents

While décor plays a huge role in creating the look and feel of a room, don’t forget about the impact scents can have. Placing a bowl of potpourri with wintry aromas, such as cinnamon or pine, will instantly give your living room a cozy atmosphere. Scented candles will have a similar effect, while also creating the perfect mood lighting for evenings.

Quintessentially Autumn Decorating Tips For An Open Concept Kitchen

An open concept kitchen is tailor made for holiday entertaining. Because it opens to the living and dining room, it creates a seamless space for gathering with family and friends, whether it’s sharing a meal (or Thanksgiving feast) in the dining area, socializing on the sofa with football on the TV, or congregating around the kitchen island for a slice of pumpkin pie and a cup of spiced cider.

While your kitchen is a place for cooking and baking during the holiday season, it should also be a festive space that welcomes guests. As the temperature drops and the leaves start to fall, celebrate the season with these quintessentially autumn decorating tips for an open concept kitchen.

Pumpkins Aren’t Just For Pie

How to make a Thanksgiving centerpiece - step by step

From carved Jack-O-Lanterns on your front porch to pies on your Thanksgiving table, these lovely gourds are extremely versatile, and perfect for creating uniquely seasonal holiday décor. With a little paint and creativity, you can turn a plain orange pumpkin into an adorable faux bunt cake to display on your kitchen island, or simply add an elegant monogram or large letter to a white or blue heirloom pumpkin for personalization. You could even make a one-of-a-kind centerpiece with fresh flowers and colorful fall foliage. The more pumpkins the better!

Have Fun With Fall Foliage

Is there anything more spectacular than colorful autumn leaves in rich shades of red, orange, purple and gold? You could bring a touch of nature indoors by simply placing colorful branches of fall leaves in a clear vase, or get crafty by stringing an autumn garland of preserved leaves. You could also frame leaf rubbings or press leaves dipped in gold and silver paint as artwork.

More Autumn Decorating Tips For An Open Concept Kitchen

Thanksgiving place setting

  • Scented candles can help add ambiance with a welcoming fragrance and soft glow. Opt for fall scents, such as pumpkin spice, cinnamon stick, and apple pie.
  • When planning a sit-down meal, make handmade place cards for guests with names, or inspirational words like “Thankful,” “Grateful,” and “Blessed,” printed on natural brown cardstock.
  • You could also print inspirational words stacked in the center of natural brown cardstock. Cut the words into long strips horizontally, and staple or glue the ends together to make handmade napkin rings for your Thanksgiving table.
  • Place colorful gourds in a basket or on a platter with realistic battery-operated candles as a centerpiece.
  • Place your centerpiece atop a beautiful burlap table runner, or set your table with woven placemats and galvanized metal chargers.
  • Bring a touch of nature indoors by filling decorative glass jars with small seasonal items like pinecones and acorns collected from your yard.
  • Add a basket of mums to your kitchen for seasonal color.

Tips for Upgrading Your Bathroom Vanity Features

If you’re not ready to do a complete remodel, yet are looking for a quick and easy way to spruce up your bathroom, focus on upgrading the features of your bathroom vanity and cabinets. Since the vanity is one of the first things our attention is drawn to whenever we enter a bathroom, making some updates to this component is guaranteed to make a positive impact on the rest of the room.

Below are six simple yet effective ways to update the features of your bathroom vanity and add more personality to your bathroom.


Add a large mirror to your bath vanity to create a stunning focal point upon entering your bathroom. Vanities with mirrors add visual interest by helping to create a sense of depth and dimension, while also adding a bit of a luxurious feel.

Plus, mirrors are essential for you to be able to see your makeup and hair from every angle when getting ready. Depending on the lighting situation in your bathroom, you may find that you need to install makeup lighting around the mirror to get the proper amount of light when getting ready.

Bathroom Vanity Cabinets

Get a bathroom vanity with cabinets or add custom cabinets to your current vanity. Cabinets are a great way to keep your vanity looking neat and stylish because you’ll be able to store the majority of your tools and supplies behind closed doors and avoid cluttering up the counter.

Choose cabinetry that makes the most sense for your bathroom’s style and the number of people who share the bathroom, whether that’s pull-out cabinets, a single cabinet or a combination of cabinets and drawers.

Open Shelves

If you prefer the look of open shelves, be sure to add some shelving to your vanity or get a custom vanity with all open shelves, rather than one with cabinets and drawers with doors. With this design, you’ll be able to best maximize your storage and stay organized if you store all of your necessities in a variety of decorative boxes and baskets that will also look lovely sitting on the shelves.

Add Stylish Décor to the Countertop

While it’s always a good idea to keep most of your belongings stored in cabinets or in baskets on shelves, keeping a few items on your vanity’s countertop can add to the décor of your bathroom and make the room more inviting.

Just be selective and intentional about the items you choose to display on top of your vanity. For example, you may consider placing a bouquet of fresh flowers on top, keeping perfume bottles on a beautiful jewelry tray or storing items like lip glosses, pretty wrapped bars of soap and cotton balls in a few clear canisters of various sizes.

Add New Cabinet Hardware

Adding new cabinet hardware is a simple way to change the look of a vanity and give a fresh look to your bathroom. From cabinet knobs to cabinet pulls, there are a wide variety of cabinet hardware options available, making it easy to find a style, type and finish that suits your style and perfectly complements your vanity.

Add a Stool or Bench

Incorporate color and some extra flair to your vanity by adding a stylish stool or bench. Of course, be sure that whichever piece you choose leaves enough room for your legs and is comfortable to sit on when applying makeup and doing your hair.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised by just how much making a few simple changes to bath vanities can help to improve the entire look and feel of your bathroom. And it will create a more inspiring environment in which to begin and end each day in!

Tips For A Stylish Yet Comfortable TV Room

Gone are the hidden dens and separate formal living rooms of the past. Today’s homes often feature an open concept kitchen, creating a large living area where family and friends can gather to watch TV and socialize. Since televisions are now placed front and center in the heart of the home, this open space needs to blend seamlessly with the kitchen and dining room. Designing a large family room that is both stylish and comfortable may sound like a daunting task, but it’s not as difficult as you might think. Thankfully, we’re here to help! Here are a few tips to get you started.

Create a cohesive, organized space with solid wood cabinetry.

10-9-18 WLC2-Roosevelt Steel Gray

Truth be told, a tidy home is always more appealing and comfortable than a cluttered home. A simple way to stay organized is to make sure you have enough storage space. TV room cabinetry allows you to hide DVDs, video games, board games, electronics, and even extra blankets behind closed door, while open shelves are ideal for housing books, as well as decorative touches. There’s no doubt solid wood cabinetry will add both storage space and style to your space.

Keep in mind that, when dealing with an open concept kitchen, the cabinetry you select for your TV room should match or at least compliment the cabinetry in your kitchen, for a cohesive look. Check out our recent blog, Great Design: How To Create A Cohesive Great Room Space, for tips. Then, let the experts at Willow Lane Cabinetry help you create a cohesive, organized space with our free online kitchen and room design service.

Create a room that is stylish yet comfortable.

10-9-18 WLC3-Legacy Harvest with Black Accent

First and foremost, don’t let your large screen TV become an eyesore. According to Better Homes & Gardens, the ideal height for comfortably viewing your television is three to four feet above the floor. Solid wood cabinetry below will help to anchor a TV that would otherwise be floating on a wall, while shelving around or above help it to blend into your space. Compliment the dark screen with other elements, such as gallery frames and simple decor. Simple is key, as over-decorating can be distracting. A few well-placed items are all you need when decorating around a television.

When it comes to furniture, some pieces are comfortable but not so pretty, while others are gorgeous and stiff as a board. Find the perfect balance with cushy sofas and chairs that are equally attractive. When shopping for new furniture, there are a few more rules to follow. Keep the scale of the room in mind. For example, don’t fill a small room with a large overstuffed sectional or place a tiny loveseat and area rug in the middle of a huge great room. Also, consider the design aesthetic of the rest of your home. For example, when your open concept kitchen has traditional solid wood cabinetry, with white raised panel doors and a farmhouse table, you wouldn’t want to go with an ultra modern sofa and slick Euro slab black cabinetry. Finally, it’s smart to avoid stuffy fabrics in the TV room, and opt for leather, microfiber, or washable slipcovers. And don’t forget to finish the room with fluffy pillows and throws.

3 Fabulous Fall Color Schemes For The Home

If the changing of the leaves in autumn inspires you, you might want to consider a fall color scheme for your home. Featuring reds, oranges, and yellows, these warm tones come together to create a perfect pumpkin spiced setting behind your front doors. Keep reading for a few fabulous fall color schemes that will look beautiful in your home this season.

  1. Subtly achieve an autumn-inspired color palette in a modern room.

10-6-18 WLC2-Providence Slate Grey

If your home is filled with modern features like gray kitchen cabinets and stainless steel appliances, there is still room for an autumn-inspired color palette. You just need to be strategic when incorporating warm tones into a room with a cool foundation.

To start, choose colors that complement the existing furnishings, cabinets, materials and paint colors of the room. Staying with the example of gray kitchen cabinets and stainless steel appliances, complementary colors include brick red, burnt orange, and bright yellow. When decorating a modern room, maintain the minimal vibe and add subtle pops of colors rather than oversaturating the naturally neutral space.

  1. Accent natural wood with a touch of nature.

If your room features natural wood cabinets, floors, or furnishings, adding fall is as easy as apple pie. Just think of what you find in nature — or better yet, step outside to seek some inspiration firsthand.

10-6-18 WLC3-Midtown Walnut Shaker (1)

Earthy browns and seasonal foliage as they occur in nature create a pretty perfect color scheme on their own. While its not always visually appealing to replicate these colors indoors, you are able to achieve a very authentic fall theme when the foundation of the room features natural wood.

Golden yellow, vibrant orange, and classic red look right at home against both light and dark shades of wood.

  1. Step outside the norm with an alternative fall color scheme.

While the traditional fall colors are breathtaking, you may not want to incorporate these hues into your home. Not a problem. There are other ways to create a fall color scheme without your standard red, orange, and yellow shades.

Marigold and burgundy is one color combination that is less traditional but fall all the same. These hues can warm up a room and look lovely beside black or beige elements. You could even amp up the black in this color scheme to create a slightly spooky, gothic ambiance that celebrates the season in a different way.

Rich tones like emerald green, deep blue, magenta, sage, and purple are also appropriate for fall and can be paired together to create a vibrant color scheme. You won’t find any of the leaves in your backyard colored cyan or fuchsia, but there’s no rule saying you have to transition from summer the conventional way. There are many rich hues that signal the start of cooler days that aren’t sourced from nature.

Fall can also be embodied by its textures, not just its colors. Think velvet throw pillows and cozy blankets. These types of additions help to change the mood of a room and help your home feel more seasonal.

What You Need to Know to Build a Custom Kitchen

Building a custom kitchen can be overwhelming, especially figuring out which storage and layout options will best meet your vision, lifestyle and budget.

Since the kitchen is one of the most highly used rooms in the home, it’s critical to design a functional layout that maximizes the space you have available and enables you to work as efficiently as possible, helping your day-to-day kitchen activities run smoothly.

Decide How Your Kitchen Will Be Used

Before beginning the design process, you’ll need to identify how your kitchen is going to be used, both daily and on special occasions. Knowing this will save you from having regrets later because it will determine how your kitchen layout needs to flow and what different work areas are essential for you.

Five of the most common work areas in home kitchens are:

• The pantry area (this includes the refrigerator and other food storage spaces)
• Storage for appliances, cookware and utensils
• The cooking area (the stove and oven)
• The prep area
• The sink/cleaning area

The working triangle is a concept that says the refrigerator (part of the pantry area), stove (cooking area) and sink (cleaning area) should all be in a triangle arrangement for the most efficient kitchen set up. Keep this concept in mind when designing your custom kitchen. If possible, it’s best that these areas are neither too close together, nor too far apart.

How to Choose a Kitchen Layout

Once you’ve determined the main purpose your kitchen serves and have identified the work areas you’ll need based on that, you’ll want to figure out which layout option makes the most sense. The layout you end up with will depend on various factors, including how you’ll be using your kitchen, the amount of traffic going through the room on any given day and, of course, the space you have available. Three of the most common types of kitchen layouts are:

• Linear (two parallel lines)
• L-shaped
• U-shaped

You’ll need to assess how the different flows of movement that take place in your kitchen (by you and others) will work in relation to each of these layouts. Go with the layout that allows for the smoothest flow of movement among your kitchen work areas, especially the working triangle.

Importance of Custom Kitchen Cabinets for a New Kitchen

You’ll want to utilize as much space as possible when building your custom kitchen and one of the best ways to do this is to install custom kitchen cabinets. When you invest in custom cabinets, you’ll be able to design the specific type of storage space you need for your kitchen tools, appliances, dishware, bakeware and other items. You’ll also be able to maximize every possible inch of space in your kitchen, eliminating awkward, unused areas.

For example, if you bake frequently and have a lot of cookie sheets, muffin tins, cooling racks and other large items that don’t easily fit (or fit at all) into regular cabinets, you can have a section of your custom cabinets designed to neatly contain these items and enable you to easily access them, too.

Bottom Line: Your Kitchen Needs to Work for You

We know there’s a lot to consider when building a custom kitchen. To avoid getting overwhelmed with the numerous options available and ensure your new kitchen will work for you, start by making a list of what is currently working in your kitchen and what isn’t. This list can then be broken down into must-haves and nice-to-haves for your new kitchen, allowing you to prioritize what’s most important to you.
