We purchased our home about 9 months ago. We loved the house but knew we were going to have to invest in some cosmetic changes to get it to our taste. I'm stuggling on what to do with the windows in the living room, eating area and kitchen which are all one open space.
The window coverings in the living room bay windows are levelor style. The eating area bay windows and kitchen window have some ugly roman shades the previous owner made themselves.
The window coverings in all the other rooms of our house are the 3" white wood blinds. Which we have added and really like the look of. I know the levalor blinds are expensive and in style so I'd hate to replace them if I don't have to.
Lastly I need recommendations regarding our cabinetry. I was thinking of painting the built ins next to the fireplace a white color and I was also considering painting the kitchen cabinets the same. I'm afraid with all the white flooring we have that it will be too washed out looking but I'm really not a fan of oak cabinets! I think in the next couple years we will change all the flooring to a wood or bamboo since white floors is not working out well with two dogs and a baby.
We have a very limited budget at the moment so I want to get the biggest bang for my dollar. I like a modern style with a little traditional.
