Angelica Massey Living Room, 2018-08-05 17:46:27. Main Living Room Lighting Options- The main light fixture should offer a large amount of light. This is usually an overhead fixture, though some designers are moving away from this traditional solution. In addition to being the primary light source, this fixture should add aesthetic appeal to the room because it will be a focal point. Choose something inviting, bold, or creative according to your room decor and taste, but let it be something inherently decorative. Many homeowners enjoy installing chandeliers or pendant and hanging fixtures in the living and sitting room for this reason.

Ideally, living room lamps should be set slightly behind and to the left or right of the area being illuminated so the light can come from behind the person's shoulder and pour light on towards the project at hand. Use smaller track lighting fixtures or other low-level lighting agents for computers and television viewing. This avoids glare and allows the screen its proper image display.

Painting the Cabinets: Painting the kitchen cabinets is one of the simplest things that you can do to change the way your kitchen cabinets always looked like. Colors make a powerful style statement and they are available in various shades so choose a color of your choice that also suits the overall kitchen decor and get your cabinets painted in that color. For a simple look you can go for matte finish colors but if you want a flashy glamorous look then glossy color paints are ideal for you.

Although kitchen cabinets are the focal point of beauty, they still have to be functional enough to house all the essential utensils, dinnerware, pots, and pans. Contemporary kitchens use the universal design principles that focus on flexibility, intuitive use, accident prevention, and minimizing fatigue. The cabinets are easier to access, with pullout shelves, sliding drawers, and spinning 'lazy susans'. The cabinets and the drawer pulls have large stainless steel bars and usually have either no handles, or just have simplistic metallic pulls. These allow for an easy clean up and a durable functioning of your kitchen. An important focus of contemporary kitchens are the natural and other lightings, which are usually used in more numbers and are adjustable, like track lighting. Installing lights under the kitchen not only ensures increased visibility during food preparation, but also highlights the stunning details of your new contemporary kitchen cabinets and the designed interiors.

If possible, get movable cupboards. If it's a base cabinet, then it should have turned legs. The décor in question is an assortment of stained and painted finishes. As long as the colors are complementing each other, you can use a combination of even three to four colors. Along with colors, they must also bear different depths and heights. Some should be deep, while some should be shallow. If you are aiming for wall shelves, then you can opt for the open style. Now, we come to the material to be used. Well, most of the rich, stained, and dark types of wood, like oak, birch, chestnut, cherry, elm, etc., are suitable materials for the typical urban cupboards. Light-stained materials would mess up the mood of your kitchen.

Cabinet Knobs and Handles: Changing small things in cabinets can make a big difference and changing the knobs and handles of the kitchen cabinets does the same thing for you. You can replace the overused and unnoticeable knobs and handles with the new designer ones that can change the look of your kitchen instantly. Go for bigger handles and knobs that would catch the eyes and attentions of the viewer and distract his mind from the old cabinets. This is one of the best ideas, if you have an extremely low-budget for remodeling purpose.

Apply a base color to your cabinets first and then apply a layer of tinted painter's wax. You can now apply another layer of color to the same surface and cover it with another layer of tinted painter's wax. Finally apply the crackling paint over the surface. After this final layer of paint dries, simply brush the surface using a sandpaper to remove any irregularities in the surface.

The Traditional Theme, A lot of us refuse to succumb to the ever-changing trends in the world of design and wish to stick to the confines of traditional design that we believe defines our personal style. Black is so versatile a color that it can be molded into any design and any theme. As such, incorporate such antique cabinets into your traditional kitchen design. These are actually similar to the ones that have been mentioned in the rustic theme, minus the distressed look. The unique motifs that adorn them, along with the molding and traditional handles, all speak for themselves when used. Use marble, instead of granite, for the ultimate traditional appeal. Incorporate yellow lights and not the contemporary white ones for a warm feel. Combine these cabinets with redwood flooring and some unique colors, and create a unique combination of a traditional-yet-rustic appearance.

Keep in mind that, since you are following a particular theme, it should be applicable to your whole house and not just your kitchen. You don't want it to stick out like a sore thumb because of your desire to solely revamp your kitchen. The overall theme does not have to be blatantly prominent, but elements of a particular theme must be present all over your house for a better effect.

When wood is used, it is usually lightly grained like birch, ash, or maple, as they usually look well in simple designs. There are certain designers, developing lines of kitchen cabinetry that feature renewable materials, such as bamboo. This is not only environmentally friendly, but also has quite a pleasing aesthetic result. If you would rather avoid wood, then you can go in for metal kitchen cabinets. While stainless steel, with its mirror-like finish, continues to be a popular choice, metal kitchen cabinets that are made of copper, give a rather antique look to the kitchen. Not only are they aesthetically appealing, but are also resistant to corrosion and staining. Using thermofoil and melamine as your chosen material allows you to make a dramatic statement with a wide range of color options.
