What Houzz contributors are saying:
ConsLaminate flooring is not resistant to water, hence not suitable for outdoor areas and bathrooms.Unlike hardwood, damage such as stains and scratches cannot be repaired or sanded down. You will have to replace the planks.With constant use and cleaning, the topmost layer may slowly erode.Tip: Pergo and Square Foot have quite a wide selection of colours and patterns to choose from.
The living room flows into the dining space, where the white walls, blue-painted ceiling and the wooden flooring create a visual continuity. “The ceiling cornices, the large painting, the sculptural dining table with tufted upholstered dining chairs and carved furniture legs, and a decorative pendant light break the monotony of the neutral walls and flooring,” Aggarwal says.
Customise the dining area according to the family’s eating habitsEvery joint family dines differently – while some make it a point to enjoy at least one meal together, some others prefer to eat at their own time and convenience. If it’s the former, then investing in a large, smart dining table is a good idea. On the other hand, “we’ve had clients who have requested smaller dining tables because many members tended to eat in the living room, in their bedrooms or in the TV room. So it makes sense to choose buffet tables or small tables that are extendable, with hideaway chairs that can be pulled out only when in use,” Balvally says.Check out these dining rooms on Houzz
