amount of floor showing around the room. - i've recently put hardwood in my dining room and stained it the same color as in this picture. I am having an area rug custom made.
other than my table and chairs, there is a sideboard on the long side of my room. Should the carpet be cut right in front of the sideboard legs so front and back legs are on the floor? or is it ok, for the front legs to be on the carpet and not the back legs?
thank you. »
ELEGANT COMFORT! Can you please tell me the dimensions of this space? - We are custom building a home and our formal dining room will be 18.5x12. The long wall is an exterior wall and I don't know if I should add windows or just wainscoting with sconces. The 12ft wall has a large window and I plan on having a small seating area on that end. Thanks! »
Painting mahogany paneled walls - We are purchasing a home with a family room that has mahogany paneled walls. While I think this look is beautiful, the room has 8 ft ceilings and is incredibly dark. We ARE painting it and I can not find any DIY tips on the process. We are moderate to advanced DIYers, buy need guidance. Thanks! »
The homeowner's existing dining room table was sent to a cabinetmaker where two leaves were created to accommodate more seating and was stained along with the buffet to adapt to the home new color scheme. New chairs surround the refurbished table. A pendant fixture from Union Lighting polishes the look.
