Dining Room Before and After – I love before and after pictures and this dining room’s before and after pictures is no exception.
Notice in the before photo how dark and small the room appears to be. The use of the dark furniture on the dark wood flooring may seem like a good idea at first, but the two together makes the room too dark and draws your eyes to the lower area of the room instead of up, which would give a sense of height. Painting the walls a neutral color is safe, but notice how it lacks character and life. I’m even going to take a moment to pick on the light fixture. If there is one easy fix you can make in any room, it’s the light fixture. This one is your basic home improvement store item and it’s ordinary.
Then your eyes shift to the after photo. Can you believe this is the same room? If it weren’t for the mirror on the wall, I would swear the photographer went to another home and took a pic.
Now let’s compare, light furniture was used, color was added to the wall and that ugly light fixture was removed. There is a sense of personality and openness now. Job well done.
