Many homeowners may save redecorating the dining room for when they expect guests or for when it’s close to holiday gatherings. Well, why should one of the most delightful spaces in your home only be reserved for special occasions or entertaining others? We have a few ideas on how to easily upgrade your dining room design to match the aesthetic of the rest of your home. After making some stylish changes to your dining room design, you’ll want to enjoy your nightly family dinners in such a beautiful space.
Paint the Walls
A drastic way to upgrade and refresh the look of your dining room is by painting the walls. Subdued and traditional colors yield a timeless impression. However, why not use a different colored paint from the rest of your home to make your dining room design stand out? Reds, greens, and yellows are generally appetite boosting colors. Opt for rich shades of these paint colors, such as deep maroon, hunter green, or yellow ochre.
Featured Dining Table
The dining room table draws all the attention of the room. Consider replacing your old, plain table with a wooden dining table featuring ornate leg carvings. Another elegant option would be a glass dining table. Make your table further stand out as a statement to the dining room design by using your favorite centerpiece or table settings.
New Dining Room Chairs
Dining room chairs should be comfortable, practical, and stylish accents to the dining table. When selecting new chairs, make sure one’s seated height is appropriate for the table height too. Many dining room chairs incorporate upholstery. Either pick upholstery that is stain-resistant and easy to clean, or protect it with other seat coverings.
Add an Area Rug
Adding a large area rug to the dining room is a cost-effective alternative to reflooring the room. Rugs come in all shapes, sizes, designs, and materials. Generally, choose a low-pile rug that is easy to clean and won’t be difficult to pull chair legs across. Many homeowners also typically choose a rug shape that is similar to their dining table shape to preserve the look of symmetry. Feel free to explore different options to find a unique look that speaks to you.
Change the Lighting
Did you know lighting affects one’s appetite too? Getting the lighting in your dining room design perfect is crucial. Natural light creates the most enjoyable dining experience. Dimmer lights cause most people to eat slower but sometimes more indulgently. Change up the ambiance of your dining room by installing a modern pendant light or brilliant chandelier. Additionally, dining room lights with dimming controls can help you set the right tone for any occasion, from a holiday feast with family to a romantic dinner for two.
