We are planning on doing some sprucing up ......
We need all new flooring in our house and in the process of the overhaul, we plan on painting and knocking out a wall or two....
I would love to have some ideas on a few *problem* areas...
For instance in our office. Do you see where the file cabinet is to the left? That is a closet. Should I put a door on that or a curtain or how about those beads from the 1970's..What do you think? Or should I just leave it open?
What about the laundry area? Would you leave as is? Would you paint the cabinets? Would you get a stackable washer and dryer and have a broom closet beside that?
We are actually thinking of knocking out this wall going up the stairs..The one to the right. Then making a handrail and taking the carpet off the stairs and exposing the wood. Would you do that? If not, why?
Another view of stairs.
This is probably the main problem I have with the entire house. See that large wooden"pillar" in the center of the room? What a pain!! But it supports, I think, part of the room upstairs. How would you take care of this problem? As you can tell I have a very old house. Originally built in 1955 and added on through the years. Its crooked and crazy but I really like my house. Just needs some improvement..
Ok, here is the dining area off the kitchen. Border is out of style? What color should I paint? Should the ceiling fan over the table go? What would you do?
And last but not least, this wall. It is in the living room..Granted the wood is pretty and someone took some time to do this but I think it makes the room dark and seem smaller. Would you paint over the wood or tear it off and put up sheetrock and paint? Would you keep that wood looking wall as is?
Would you let your pets on your furniture? Would you let your cat get this fat? Would you let your dog flatten the cushions on your couch? Tell me.
