Windows and Lighting
Living room should be well lit – it’s so much fun and it’s easier when you know few tricks. Certainly, it’s good when the windows are big. But if the windows are small, they need to be properly framed – to increase at least visually. We recommend to give preference to light, light curtains, which can also be easily removed and washed. A good option is a light tulle without assemblies. By the way, it is easy to wash. Choose artificial light sources carefully. The light should be soft and diffuse – it is provided by matt (moon) lamps. Milky light does not tire the eyes. But too bright lighting can cause headaches.

The best option – natural colors and calm pictures. And if the wallpaper is monochrome, hang at least a couple of photos or a picture, then the eyes will not run in vain along the wall, trying to catch something, sending an alarm signal to the brain.

Open Concept: Kitchen-Dining Room

Before deciding to turn your own living room into a kitchen-dining room, you should weigh all the pros and cons.
The combined dining room and kitchen were born out of a desire to increase space, demolish walls – a person always wants “air”. Especially this desire is actual for owners of small apartments. The combination of the living room and the kitchen allows you to get a free space in which there is enough space for cooking and for a small party. In a large house, it is better to separate the kitchen from the dining room. Especially if the hosts are used to a large number of guests and receptions.
One of the arguments that opponent of combining the premises lead is the smells that arise during cooking. But in the nowadays, the problem of burnt food ceases to be relevant. In addition, the aroma of fresh baked goods or roasted meat can hardly be called unpleasant.
Cons in the design of the kitchen-dining room is much larger. This new space and scope for the implementation of the most daring design solutions, the opportunity to split the original working and dining areas. Finally, buy a beautiful eco-friendly furniture from natural wood, which in a small kitchen would look awersome.
In a large space, kitchen furniture will look quite different – it’s all in the palm of your hand and attracts attention. Wooden furniture has always been a symbol of reliability and stability. The color of wood varies from light yellow-pink and greenish-gray to red-brown shades. RattanUSA allows you to choose the color of furniture from Maple to Black for an individual interior. In any case, it will have a beautiful texture with an outstanding pattern of fibers.

Despite all the obvious advantages of the kitchen-dining room, there are always people who want to leave the sacrament of cooking concealed from prying eyes. For some families, the kitchen is almost as intimate a place as a bedroom. It is extremely important for these housewives to share the kitchen and dining room. This allows you not to waste time on putting things in order in the work area before the arrival of guests, to keep the secret of cooking the crown dish, to hide the gorgeous cake outside the door and take it out to the dining room unexpectedly for guests, or just for a moment alone with you during a dinner party.

A separate dining room contributes to the spirit of aristocracy. For a large dining table, comfortably, both households and guests can stay. The basis of the dining room is a wooden table and wooden chairs. They set the style. And if you have found the opportunity to arrange a dining room, then you do not need to save on furniture. Let it be natural, ecological and respectable.
After all, in any situation, you can equip a comfortable and cozy place for cooking and eating food, so that you get not only culinary, but aesthetic pleasure.
