1) Curved Built-In Option - Fireplace Wall:  

-More traditional to fit with the style of your home's exterior and your kitchen

-While I still highly recommend bringing the fireplace forward, this style can go either way

-Lower portion of built-ins with doors is kept low at 18" high so as not to compete with the fireplace or tv wall cabinets

- I still recommend the fireplace section be all one material, so as not to break the small wall into another section.  In this elevation, I'm still recommending painted drywall which creates a more cohesive look for the other three walls in the room, as well as the dining room walls

-Shelves can be stained or painted white

-Shelves are just 10" deep

- Mantel is stained wood

-Round knobs repeat the curve of the arches

-Crown runs across top and around room

 

TV Wall:

-36" base cabinet/countertop height

-Upper glass cabinet doors are arched

-Round knobs repeat the curve of the arches

-Crown runs across top (along the wall above the television) and around room

-Cabinets are just 12-15" deep

 

2) Linear Built-In Option - Fireplace Wall:  

-Includes traditional elements to fit with the style of your home's exterior and your kitchen while mixing a touch of modern for interest and to appeal to future buyers

-While I still highly recommend bringing the fireplace forward, this style can go either way

-Key design element is the contract of clean squares on each side of the natural stone and more farmhouse-style mantle

-Lower portion of built-ins with doors is 24" 

-I still recommend the fireplace section be all one material, so as not to break the small wall into another section. In this elevation, I've shown the option of a light stone veneer

-Shelves can be stained or painted white

-Shelves are just 10" deep

-Mantel is stained wood, and thicker than the other option

-Long, linear pulls repeat the long, lines of the shelving units 

 

TV Wall:

-36" base cabinet/countertop height

-Upper glass cabinet doors mimic the geometry of the fireplace shelves

-A horizontal shelf "box" connects the two shelving units

-Long, linear pulls repeat the long, lines of the shelving units

-Cabinets are just 12-15" deep

 

Dining Room Panel Moulding Sample:

-Center panel is centered on long wall and is slightly longer at 4' than those on each side

-Allow 4" between each panel 

-Allow 4" from bottom of chair rail to top of panel moulding

-Allow 5" from bottom of panel moulding to top of baseboard
