Even studio room flats can have a table and chairs. Look for ultra slimline dining tables (that one even has a safe-keeping drawer) and second-hand chairs that you can customise. These old chapel recliners are wonderfully distinctive and filled with personality. Whitewashed and treated to touches of lilac, red and yellow metal they create a lovely mix of old and new when teamed with the stripped back again table.
Installing new cupboards can be costly, so some homeowners choose to simply upgrade them with a coating of paint. Painting your kitchen units is a project that most DIYers enjoy taking on. As you already know, there are numerous colors available, but it isn't as easy as simply applying a new coating of paint. The previous finish must be sanded off completely and cleansed. This might not be considered a simple DIY afternoon some are being used to.
This dining space is very little wider than its home window, but it's been maximised with the addition of built-in bench seats. Include storage area under benches which means you are not wasting any space. Add seat pads and scatter cushions in a variety of coloured fabrics. Squash the largest stand possible between your two benches and make the area special by dangling an oversized pendant light above. A pleasant, cosy arrangement.
Whether you prefer them or not, your cabinets are the focal point of the kitchen. Thankfully, you may well not need an entire kitchen case remodel to show up in love with them. Choosing a new finish can be a cost effective way to update your kitchen.
Strong use of colour is not for the faint hearted, but a terrific way to create a remarkable dining experience. Be daring with shade on both walls and surfaces, or for a far more subtle approach, get one of these bright rug under the desk to help specify the dining area, or create focal points with visual paintings and images. For an atmospheric eating experience, a range of tones in the same color will unite the whole space, while a dark colored ceiling gives the area a cosy feel. If you have a dado rail, consider wallpaper above it and a profound color below for a cocooning effect.
