Chris and Julie Danielewski devise to reinstate a bustling marble tile in a living/dining area of their Crofton home someday, though it is not in a bill right now. In a meantime, they would like to refurbish a space and minimize a visible impact of a floor.


The solution. (Julius Goyanko for The Washington Post)

Designer Dana Tydings uses paint on a walls and existent furnishings and adds seating for a budget-friendly update. Tydings, of Tydings Design (301-947-5447, www.tydingsdesign.com), is formed in Laytonsville.

Cover a tile floors with neutral sisal area rugs in both bedrooms to make a space cohesive.

Paint a walls a sophisticated, comfortable gray such as Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl.

The existing list also acts as an finish table and gets new life with a cloak of aqua paint (Benjamin Moore’s Sonoma Skies).

Create a friendly reading area with dual chairs, a list and an charge lamp. Use low-profile chairs to equivocate restraint windows.

A paper list curtain in an eye-catching print becomes a wallpaper accent.

Update a dining set with dual shades of gray paint: Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl and Cumulus Cloud.
