Whether you like them or not, your cabinets are the center point of the kitchen. Thankfully, you may not need an entire kitchen pantry remodel to fall deeply in love with them. Choosing a new finish can be a cost effective way to update your kitchen.
Polyester is a similar option but stronger than lacquer. However, if you assume touch ups or changes, this might not be the finish for you. The polyester end you choose will likely be clear or slightly tinted and it might not completely change the look of your cabinetry.
Even studio room flats can have a table and chairs. Look for ultra slimline furniture (this one even has a storage area drawer) and second-hand recliners that you can customise. These old chapel seats are wonderfully distinctive and full of figure. Whitewashed and cared for to touches of lilac, red and silver they create a pleasant mix of old and new when teamed with the stripped backside table.
Strong use of colour is not for the faint hearted, but a great way to create a dramatic eating experience. Be daring with coloring on both walls and floors, or for a far more subtle approach, get one of these dazzling rug under the table to help define the dining area, or create things with visual paintings and prints. For an atmospheric dinner experience, a range of shades in the same coloring will unite the complete space, while a dark coated ceiling will give the area a cosy feel. If you have a dado rail, consider wallpaper above it and a profound colour below for a cocooning effect.
Just like stain, you can also use glaze with paint to improve the decorative features of your cabinetry. Just as that you'd use a base overcoat of stain, use a base coat of car paint. However, it'll soften the look of the colour.
