Living room before and after photos

Northwest Elements Home Design IncDecember 27, 2013
The home had carpet in the living room, dining room, and under the bar counter. Prior to moving in I had the carpet removed and added Tiger wood to match the existing tiger wood in the kitchen and entry way. It was probably one of the best choices I ever made. The area was cold, but the Tiger wood added a great deal of warmth to the area. Also selected furniture pieces and accessories that would add the general warmth of the room and provide a cozy sitting area.

It's amazing how much the hardwood alone does to warm up the space

The open concept of this home with the Mt. Rainier views are what I loved the most of this floor plan, and we positioned the furniture around the large windows to capture the mountain and rolling hills of the Cascades. The hardwoods really did improve the warmth of the room completely, thanks dclostboy. I also has assistance from the person I used for my blinds and she had the great idea of cutting up the carpet and binding the edges to make the rug that you see the photo.

This floor is dark with dark furnitures. It's exactly the look I w looking for for my house and lower level flooring. But instead was just advices by others here in the pictures I
I posted to not go for this look because the house will look too dark. How come I am getting mix advices?

By the way your place is fabulous. Would love to see how it looked before.

Chairiroma- I do think the furniture is too dark. Why is everything dark brown?

Chariroma, Thanks very much for the activity and the compliments. To some people it may be too dark, but for us it works. It's neutral and easy to care for and I think everything flows well. I think the large windows that fill the room with natural light definitely help, plus the area rug/pillows helps brighten up the space. To add color in the room I have a collection of pillows and such to change out as needed. My plan is to add more recessed lighting in the living area in the future.
