Need help with Panel Room
tmva
January 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My room and I need help! . Room is 12x24, knotty pine paneling on all walls & ceiling, 6 windows, one radiator, one fireplace, one opening (1941 home). My ideas are: (1) tile fireplace (install glass ‘stick’ dark brown tile), (2) add a thick wood (L shape) mantel, (3 )install shallow shelf (v. chair rail) on 2 walls on the same ‘line’ as the window sill (apron), (4) remove top paneling (above window sills (apron)), seal brick wall (waterproof), insulate and add drywall, paneling on lower half of wall would remain. One wall (opening side) and ceiling would not be painted or removed. Not sure if these changes would make the room look choppy. The room is on the NW side, hence the reason for insulation and wiring needs an upgrade. Since insulation is necessary was thinking of reinstalling the knotty pine boards horizontally v. vertical (current position). Was also thinking of getting rid of the pellet stove and installing a non-vented gas fireplace. The radiator is undersized requiring another heating source and the windows will have grass cloth roman blinds. Comments and ideas are welcomed! House is located in Washington Dc area so updating is required! Havng computer problems hope this messag isn't posted twice!

You want to put self stick tile ON the bricks? Or am I reading that wrong?

a drywall would give your room a wider appearance. Personally white is too eye catching and clinical. Grasscloth blinds would be nice.

I think the fireplace would be niced positioned between both windows where the t.v. is. All about balance

Curacaoblue - No self stick tile. Glass tile, stick pattern (thin strips)

Nicole - good idea; however can't move the fireplace - pellet stove is inserted in the wood burning fp. It's a crazy room which almost needs to be subdivided.
