A dark, small space with a low ceiling might appear an improbable contender for a successful dining room scheme, but just look at this wonderful design. An all-over whitewash of surfaces, ceiling and floor has a modernising impact, making a dark space light and creating the feel of the gallery or exhibition space. The white backdrop throws everything in the room into sharp comfort: artwork, bench, old-fashioned chair and farmhouse table, but it's the pops of red (artwork, lampshade, stand) that are the final ingredient of the successful scheme the one that manages to be more than the total of its parts.
Small does not have to mean ordinary. Where space isn't the wow factor, pull the interest with coloring and structure. One side of this small dining area has been given over to vibrant coloring and pattern. A feature wallpaper takes centre stage, flanked by fuchsia pink alcoves in a wonderfully energetic decorating program. Bench seating is a sensible choice for this small space, while pendant bulbs put in a little mood light come night-time.
Strong use of color is not for the faint hearted, but a terrific way to create a dramatic dining experience. Be daring with colour on both the walls and surfaces, or for a more subtle approach, get one of these glowing rug under the table to help establish the dining zone, or create focal points with graphic paintings and designs. For an atmospheric eating out experience, a variety of tones in the same colour will unite the complete space, while a dark coated ceiling will give the room a cosy feel. If you have a dado rail, consider wallpaper above it and a profound colour below for a cocooning impact.
If you love the appearance of the solid wood you've chosen for your cabinets and want showing it off, staining might be considered a great option. Stain was created to improve the natural look of the lumber. Stains range between one solid color that cover many imperfections of the solid wood to transparent staining that show the majority of its natural beauty. If you are completely exchanging your cabinets or simply need a refresh on your present cabinets, stain is a superb option that is sure to complement any style.
While some DIY projects are easy to cover, kitchen remodeling often may differ based on what you want, the size of the kitchen, and cost of materials. Some homeowners like to lessen project costs by DIYing certain elements of their kitchen remodel and allowing a contractor to take care of areas where specific skills are needed.
