Windows can seem larger if they have narrow frames and surrounding woodwork, and cutting back on the drapes also tends to help open out a room. As previously mentioned, mirrors can also be used to make a room appear more expansive, but should be avoided with larger rooms if you wish to create an intimate atmosphere. Dining rooms tend to be the source of a lot of conversation, so wallpaper is better than painted walls for absorbing sound waves. A carpet or rug also absorbs sound better than wood flooring. Without some form of sound absorption, voices will be reverberating from surface to surface, and the conversation will be booming rather than muted.
Many people furnish the living room with solid ark stained oak or American cherry, and use lightly stained oak or even white furniture in the dining area. By combining a good choice of furniture with well-placed lighting, it is possible to expand the apparent depth of any room in comparison with the general living area. Mirrors are an excellent way to make a smaller room larger. When choosing furniture, you might also consider one or two mirrors that can enhance the overall open plan effect. Some people elect to use mirrors in their living and dining areas that reflect each other, and in so doing not only add depth, but also bring the two together. Carvers’ Guild, for example, offer decorative mirrors suitable for both living rooms and dining rooms, and are ideal wall decor for open plan living areas.
