THE RECLAIMED WOOD TABLE AND RENOVATING YOUR KITCHEN

Renovations for a kitchen (or any room in your house for that matter) can require endless deliberations over the smallest of details to ensure that the end result will come out exactly as you envisioned it. In the process of renovating you must maintain the architectural integrity of the home and also tie together the spaces and centrepiece items using a similar colour theme( s).

Bustle & Flow

Is your kitchen the efficient space that you want it to be? If not, consider moving appliances and if you dare, readjust the floor plan even more. How much space do you need for everyday traffic? The kids need room to grab their breakfast while coffee is made and the dog is taken care of. Think about what kind of space you want your kitchen to be.

They removed a structural wall between two of the rooms in their house to create a more open kitchen and living room area. Some welcome additions to the living space included a reclaimed wood table with painted legs paired with spindle-backed chairs painted green, area rugs and brass porthole mirrors to compliment the finish of the lighting fixtures. It is amazing what a new paint job, striking centrepieces and lovely accents, like a reclaimed wood table or a beautiful hammered brass mirror, can do for your home.

Tying themes, spaces and centrepiece items together.

As you select your themes, colours and new additions for the room remember to consider what is already there. What color palette are you working with? Do you want to add lighting fixtures? If so, what color are they going to be? , if you are going with something like brass perhaps consider the addition of a mirror or a painting with a brass-colored frame.. If you select a reclaimed wood table, choose a neutral wood like white oak that can be stained to match what is in the room or even paint the table legs the same color as the primary color chosen for the room. Consider a cherry or walnut table with a beautiful stained finish if your home has rich tones and textures.

Ensure continuity in the room by taking the time to tie all of the design pieces together properly.

When you select your themes and colors keep in mind there is always the potential for overkill. There is such a thing as using too much of one design element in the process of renovating. Be cautious in the use of reclaimed wood. Remember when you choose to accent your new kitchen with reclaimed wood pieces that also having the floor, walls and cabinetry all done in reclaimed wood is probably not the best idea. Select pieces that you want to stand out and draw the eye to. Countertops, dining room tables and your kitchen island are great places to begin along with reclaimed wood to accent the backsplash. They can add character and grab your attention without overpowering the space with their presence.

No detail is too small.

When choosing your accents and centerpieces for your kitchen like a new dining room table, no detail is too small. You want the table not just as a centerpiece in the room but as a centerpiece that fits the space it was made to fill. Indulge in the possible design details for your dining room table. Take a look at different table leg styles for a twist of added elegance or maybe think about painting the table legs a different color from the top. For more ideas about style and color choices for your table check out this blog post. Pull inspiration from the rest of your renovated kitchen and use the design elements around you if you are unsure of what to do. Also, keep in mind what you want the table to be used for. Do you need a large 12+ person table to entertain guests or does the space require a smaller, more intimate breakfast nook in a sunny spot? To help choose the size of your new table here is a very helpful blog post on the specific subject matter.
