What Houzz contributors are saying:
Look at the lightWhatever the age of the property, it’s important to think about how much light is coming in. Consider which way the back garden is facing – south or west are best for obtaining all day or evening sun in your living space, which is usually at the rear of your home. However, if the rear of your property faces north, there are still some possible solutions. You can still have access to east and west light if you orientate an extension, or add window openings to the side of the house. The ideal situation for a living space is to have easterly light in the morning and westerly light in the evening.
Stick with similar huesIt’s common to paint the walls below a picture rail in a colour and above in white. But going for two tones of the same colour (you can buy a smaller pot of paint for the area above the rail) is a great way to allow the feature to stand out without it being too obvious. Here, a very slightly lighter shade of blue is used above the picture rail, with a darker hue on the rail itself and below to add another dimension to the room. Like this blue living room?
