Which color Faux wood blinds to choose for kitchen+Family room ?
I Have a large kitchen +family roomand the kitchen has cherry cabinets.The kitchen has stainless steel+black appliances
There is also a huge window in the family room.
My question is
1)Should the color of blinds for the kitchen window and family room window be same since they all are in the same continuous space?
2)Would white or cherry look better in the kitchen?If cherry is fine,then does it need to match exactly with the cabinet cherry stain?The walls are painted Benjamin Moore Bone Ivory color.
2)In the family room,would cherry color faux wood blinds look better or white ?The walls are painted a neutral color(Benjamin moore Bone White).I plan to have mostly black leather furniture in the family room and the accessories would be red+orange and yellow.Would white look too contrasting for this space?
Thanks for your replies in advance!
With an open floor plan, having uniform window treatments is best.
As for the color, here are some kitchen makeovers that HGTV did with cherry cabinets. In this one, although it's not a great shot, you can tell that the blinds match the cabinets pretty well & look great. I like it with the white trim around it:
These two use a light colored roman shade, which looks better since the windows don't have any trim around them:
Hope this helps.
You're giving me ideas!
What color should I paint the walls if we have honey oak cabinets, stainless steel appliances and smaller red?
appliances? Bottom half of the wall is white wood paneling and has a big sliding door that emits a lot of light-has a venetian blind. We have not decided on countertops either so any suggestions welcomed.
play around with the Sherwin Williams color visualizer to find something that you like. It is the best paint visualizer on the web, imho. I like how their color palette is laid out, I like that you can search by color family & color name, the "painted" rooms look the most realistic, and it suggests coordinating color schemes. You can literally spend hours:
I think "Expressive Plum" (# 6271) would look terrific.
You can also take a photo of your house & upload it to the makeover gallery on this website:
You can get color suggestions & they'll photoshop them onto your room so that you can get an idea of what it will look like.
What is the best way to protect yourself from bad lightning if you are on a beach with nowhere to hide?
Lets say you have walked 5 miles up thin strip of beach. The strip of beach, no wider than a football field at it's widest point, separates the intracoastal waterway and the atlantic ocean. Hence, water on both sides. The beach is a wildlife refuge and therefore contains absolutely no man-made objects.
Assume that a large thunderstorm rapidly approaches, giving you approximately 20 minutes before the heavy rains, blinding lightning and deafening cracks of thunder begin. You have a backpack and a fishing pole. The fishing pole is a graphite composite 7' foot rod, with a machine grade aluminum reel. You have a stainless steel leatherman attached to your belt and a GPS unit in your pocket. In your bookbag you have about two pints of water and several lures, many containing lead sinkers embedded within them.
Assume the lightning and thunder will last about 2 hours. What the heck do you do?
Hypothetically, the weather was checked, and like any "prediction," it is not 100% accurate, ya MORON.
Lay all your gear down. Move at least 50' away and lay down. Enjoy the show. If your really worried dig a hole to sit in.
How do I make my Fossil watch shiny clean!?!?
How can I make my Fossil Watch shiny clean at home? Not only do I want it clean but I want it to be blinding clean as in very shiny. It is a stainless steel water resistant (330ft) fossil watch.
Use tooth paste. It might sound crazy, most people don't know but it really works. It worked on my mother's watch and wedding ring. So im pretty sure that it will work.
Why does every new and/or crappy home/condo use the words luxury and/or breath taking in their listing?
these two words must be the most over played words in real estate. at what point did every home/condo all of a sudden become 'luxurious'????? and why don't realtors or builders get that it's simply annoying to read that over and over. agents, are you blind? and, when did everyone start requiring luxury. kings and queens live in luxury. not US. granite counter tops and stainless steel is luxurious? huh???
Realtors are trained to use those types of words to catch your attention. The more traffic they get the odds of selling the house go up.
