you can add floor (and table) feature lighting to warm up your space and illuminate some of the more charming parts of your home.A table lamp near a houseplant helps brighten up a dark corner. Or. create a comfy reading nook with an overhanging floor lamp and an overstuffed chair. You don't need to change out fixtures. and you can still swap out feature lighting whenever you want to try something different.
Paint your moldingPlain white molding is to builder-grade homes as tile is to grout: you can't have one without the other. Some homeowners love the clean. bright look. but white molding can seem quite sterile. For a completely personalized look. consider painting your molding to add depth to your woodwork. Black molding creates a modern contrast. while a light brown makes for a more peaceful room.
Taking an afternoon to trim mirrors in stained or painted hardwood gives your bathroom a completely custom look that is anything but generic. Try matching your cabinetry finish or stain for a more refined look. or go for a bright color for a fun kid's bathroom. Getting rid of the harsh. plain edges of unframed mirrors adds character. and. best of all. doing so doesn't require a complete bathroom renovation.
First. consider proportions of the room. You'll want to account for the size of your table. and the proportions of your room itself. If your formal dining room table seats 10 people. you may want to look into a row of matching pendants. But. if the room only seats your family of four. perhaps a single chandelier will do the trick. As a rule. your light fixture should cover 2/3 of the table.
