You can find coffee tables that have a hydronic lift to raise it to be a dining table. Very cool. Also an area rug defines a space, large or small. Use screens to hide heaters or AC or as a room divider.

I love my dark floors. I've mixed cherry wood with the dark floor. Lots of coral and white makes it pop!

I've had my laminate floors for 10 years and they are as beautiful as when they were new, No pets, though.

Covering 'natural' wood -- Hiluhilu's grass cloth idea is good for covering back of dark wood, but any fabric will do. For a formal room I used 'on-sale' Thai silk - great shimmer and reflection. For a bedroom I used a printed fabric that 'matched' (bad word these days!). Neither of these choices may match rustic decor, but there are plenty of fabrics that would. Textured upholstery fabric remnants work well, too!

My point really is that fabric put up with white craft fabric glue, or even Elmer's regular old glue works so quickly and easily. And washes off around edges.

Just put glue on wall, press down rough-cut fabric, use a razor blade to trim (presuming fabric doesn't unravel easily on edges). Smooth with flat of hands to squeeze out glue. (I didn't even measure very closely and still looked good!)

So when natural grainy oak is back in style :-), or you have to move and turn over property in good shape/as was, then it's easy to return to shelves to natural state. BTW, if keeping natural wood shelves/exposed edges, these seem to look better with fabric than paint. A professional-looking job, done quickly, easily and pretty cheaply. And it's fun hunting for fabrics!

To msbebb44: How about using the gorgeous red on the poster near the bookcases, then utilizing some of the white items as suggested. White shells and whitewashed driftwood if you like beachy, or a graceful white enamel ware pitcher for a country look, or a more angled vase for modern look.

Live in a very warm climate - so thankfully don't have to do most of this! Except repainting and checking caulking/seals. Just bought a new place on a slab and the weep holes need to be re-drilled and it has no insulation but will be installing it.

We live in an older home without A/C, so we leave our windows open at night to cool off. Since our bedroom has five! doors, furniture tends to be under the double hung windows, making them difficult to access to open and close. The room with the bed in the middle of the windows made me think of that.

I solved the small-bedroom problem in my 100-year-plus central-stair colonial by hunting down an antique 3/4 spool bed. Love it!
