One bonus is that you are folding the table away when you are done eating. So it’s not one more flat space for you to throw your items onto and leave. The fold-away nature of the space can encourage you to keep your kitchen table from accumulating months’ worth of junk.
When choosing your colorful grout, don’t feel limited to standard paint colors. The shiny gold grout in the photo above demonstrates how well metallic shades work in a bathroom. This style stands out when matching the grout to bathroom fixtures. To make the metallic grout pop, aim for a light or muted shade of tile. Metallic grout doesn’t have the colorful intensity of the other neon shades above, so it needs to be paired with shades that won’t compete for visual attention. With so many shades of colorful grout out there, and so many ways of incorporating it, options are endless. Will you pair dark grout with light tile? Neon grout with dark tile? Metallic grout with floor tile? However you’d like to use colorful grout, we’d love to hear about it below.
Sometimes its not just Jeremy and Sarah that you need to accommodate, but a 3-year-old Jeremy and a 4-month-old Sarah can definitely add another layer of design anxiety. The first thing to tackle is the furniture layout. If you have a baby, chances are you’ll be in and out of the room at night to tend to the baby. If possible, place their beds in opposite corners or walls with the crib being most accessible to the door. Obviously structural elements such as windows and heaters can dictate otherwise but your design objective is to give each child the most comfortable night’s sleep without one waking the other.
Don´t be scared to bring in one giant shot of color. I love this big yummy red box that was added to the coffee table. How about a collection of glass bottles? Different heights with shapes look great congregate on one end of a table anchored by a low, wide decor piece on the other. Exhibit off a assemblage of matchstick boxes, refrigerator magnets from your cross-country trip, pins from every concert you went to, or anything else. You can display them in an absorbing bowl and box or jar.
Consider the size of your ″coffee table″. For a larger table, try creating various small vignettes, each difference in scale, height in-conjunction with finish. Consider the size of your “coffee table“. Keep smaller tables clean or minimal so the table functions well when you have guests. Stack books on your “coffee table“. Create two stacks of different heights, and add precious mementos on top of each stack.
