A dark, little space with a minimal ceiling might appear an unlikely contender for a successful dining room design, but just look at this wonderful design. An all-over whitewash of wall surfaces, ceiling and floor has a modernising result, making a dark space light and creating the feel of a gallery or exhibition space. The white backdrop throws everything in the room into sharp relief: artwork, bench, vintage chairs and farmhouse stand, but it's the pops of red (artwork, lampshade, stand) that are the final ingredient of this successful scheme the one which manages to be more than the sum of its parts.
As a cheap and quick way to update kitchen cupboards, polyester and lacquer surface finishes are a great choice. Lacquer has various options in finishes such as matte to high gloss. That is best applied with a sprayer to ensure coverage of the complete cabinet. However, it requires more maintenance than other pantry finishes. If you are worried about the wear of the finish, you might consider other long lasting options.
If you're looking for a traditional look but want still want a attractive component that pops, a lantern chandelier is a great choice. Although it hangs vertically just like a traditional chandelier, the light is usually ornamented by a steel frame. They also come in a variety of sizes, so a lantern chandelier can be the perfect addition to a small dining room.
If another room properties your eating furniture, design with the whole space in mind. This living area and eating zone share the same overall decorating system. Stripped and coated flooring and whitewashed walls produce a coherent, easy-on-the-eye feel. Matching dining and coffee tables keep things co-ordinated between the zones, while a rug demarcates the living area; the spherical shape of the tabletop the eating area.
Stain is never to be confused as an alternative to glaze however. Glaze features the unique features in the look of your cabinetry. Glaze is a coating that can be used after stain or car paint has been applied. They can be used jointly, but glaze is a translucent coating made to go over a base stain. This adds more depth to the appearance of the units and will provide a traditional turn to your kitchen.
