If there’s one place the worlds of form and function seamlessly meet it’s in the kitchen. And upgrading the lighting is an way to add a fresh dose of style and substance to the space. Even if you don’t have a major kitchen remodel in your future, a simple lighting swap — from adding some architectural track lighting to installing a dramatic chandelier — might be all it takes to upgrade the entire kitchen. Lighting is a lot like painting in that way: it can be an inexpensive, but impressive way to transform the room in a single afternoon.
Since grout itself sits in thin lines between tiles, place it where it’s easy to notice: around bathroom mirrors, over kitchen sinks, or behind cooktops. Placing bright colors like neon in high-traffic areas naturally draws the eye to otherwise-small details. If you really want to make people notice your bold design choice, try opting for colorful grout between smaller tiles on the floor. It pulls focus to an area that doesn’t often get attention — the floor — while creating a unique visual treat.
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.
The neatest solution is to mount you partition in a corner unit that can also house all of your audio equipment. This way, the television can be easily viewed, but does not detract from your focal point when not in use. Remember that a corner TV cabinet does not need to face the space at precisely 45 degrees. while most prefabricated components conform to this angle a slightly off-set cabinet also works nicely.
