Several days ago I had a design dilemma post on Spanish pavers. Today reality sets in as we're pulling up 30 year old hardwood and knocking down a wall that was an immense barrier between our kitchen/kitchenette and family room with the TV.
Now that the wall is down, we're going to put up a rustic looking "fence" as a safety barrier. We're putting in a couple of steps to connect the new room too.
My question is this. . . do we install regular drywall along the now minimal "wall." Engineered wood is going on the slab and up in the kitchen area. My husband wants to do something "cool" like make low cubbies along that wall. My hesitation is we have two young dogs who are very curious and like to get into stuff. If there are low shelves/cubbies, at their level, I think it will be an invitation to nose around.
Husband thinks we could put up some kind of decorative tile. I don't know how you'd do that with the existing pavers. Is there a tile that wouldn't clash with the pavers and look great all along that low, newly created mini-wall?
