Living Room Restoration


Oops! So sorry! Where was my mind at yesterday?! I can be a tad ditzy sometimes. A 70yr old home isn't too bad

The cutoff for age here is 75 years if I remember right. Here, you only have to follow their rules for renovations if they are going to be paying for them.

First off...great job the work you have done looks great.
I too have an older home that the previous owners did some interesting repairs on so I can understand that part. Seeing how good your room looks where you took out the drop ceilings created another new project that I think I would like to do in getting rid of the drop ceilings in my livingroom and kitchen to bring them up to probably just over 11 ft. But to keep peace here at home I will wait until my restoration of the upstairs is completed.

Linkin, if you decided to go with the raised ceilings, you would not be disappointed! It really gives our living room a nice open feel to it with the warm colours making it feel comfortable. If we could open up our kitchen too, I would in a heartbeat!

The colour of the living room actually took us a while to really figure out. Originally, I had wanted to do a nice red in there, but since our kitchen and adjacent hallway are a rich plum colour, it sort of limited what we could do in the living room without things clashing too harshly. My fiance, Matt, had actually found the colour which had probably been at the bottom of our list before hand. Once we got the chip home we knew it would look great. We went with the dark trim to draw attention to the tin work on the ceiling, which we actually painted two different colours.

Despite some of our doubts, it really came together well and has given us a good basis for how we should do the rest of the house!
