San Fransisco Home

Got a small space - make every inch count as the owner of this San Fransisco Edwardian flat did. This home was featured in Better Homes & Gardens.

The owner chose low-back couches in this room to show as much of the bay windows off, as possible.
When he couldn't find a coffee table that suited his needs, he made this one out of plywood and metal trusses.
Love the style of something, but can't find it in the right size? This owner put two identical tables, side-by-side to create a larger space and displays vases collected along his travels.
The kitchen was designed to maximize storage. The laundry is even disgusied behind cabinet doors! Having a big kitchen meant being able to incorporate a big enough eat-in area, and eliminate the need for a separate dining room.
In what was the former dining room, is now the masterbedroom. But the built-in hutch is a reminder of the room's former purpose.
Using the dining room as a bedroom, means you get these beautiful windows!
The office contains two enclosed computer stations that can be hidden away with sliding doors. This room absolutely maximizes on storage.
Got a funny or awkward angle in a room. Don't leave it wasted... find something that works. This angled window is perfect fr staggering filing cabinets!While pretty, this bathroom seems out of sorts with the whole house..But it does maximize on space, as the toilet is squeezed under the narrow counter, they've gone wiht open storage, and eliminated the claw-foot tub in favor of an open shower with sloped floor and open drain.
