It’s not fun to always follow according to the rules when decorating, it would be more fun if we could be free to express and experiment repeatedly, to beautify the room. However, there are some tricks and tips that we can refer to in decorating the dining room.
We hope these tricks and tips could overcome the issue that often happens when we like high-end decoration: your eyes want one thing, your budget wants the other and never meets the two. Meanwhile, the fact is, having an expensive dining room and having a dining room that looks expensive are two very different things. And if budget constraints keep you from the first, the good news is that the latter is far easier to achieve than you might think.
THE TOUCH COLOR ON THE WALL
One of the simplest improvements you can bring to your dining room is to add a touch of color to the walls. Paint is inexpensive, easy to apply, and brightly colored walls can be far more attractive than white walls without feeling like the room sinks in a bold tone. In this house, light gray adds a bit of sophistication along with a cool cherry blossom mural that contrasts with the warm wood from tables and chairs.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT CHAIRS
The backs of dining room chairs should definitely be taller than the top of the dining table but how much taller is a matter of personal preference. When dining chairs are lower in height, it feels more modern whereas taller chairs tend to make a room feel more traditional and formal. If you’re using different side and end chairs, your end chairs should be taller than your side chairs.
FLOWER AS THE CENTERPIECE OF ATTENTION
The dining room is one of the best opportunities to make a real statement as there is nothing more beautiful than a well-made flower arrangement as the centerpiece to a curated tablescape. The extensive flower composition seen here runs almost the length of the table acting as a centerpiece. The best things about floral centers are that they can be inexpensive to create and they often change, letting you give your dining room a whole new feel from week to week.
COLOR ON YOUR DINING TABLE
Choose attractive colors for your table. Choose some good napkins. I am sure there are many prints and colors available in the market. You can also use white and silver plates and then strategically choose a pop of color to add life to your table.
So far, this is one of the best tips to facelift your dining room with small and simple movements. Golden cutlery continues to be a popular trend in dining room decor because the high-gloss metal coating cannot help but scream, “high-end.” And if striking metal objects in the dining room aren’t your choice, try using black cutlery. You will get the same luxurious look and feel with a mysterious and moody side.
RUGS UNDER THE TABLE
The rugs lose absolutely none of their room-defining powers when brought into a dining area. Instead, as accents to the table, they help take the design all the way to the floor, tying in color and pattern stories as they go. Rugs under a dining room table should be 24-30″ wider and longer than the table, allowing the back legs of the chairs to stay on the rug even when the chairs are pushed out.
WALLPAPER IN DINING ROOM
Wallpaper is a beautiful accent that can make a remarkable difference in any room. And if you’re looking to make a dramatic high-end statement with your dining room, the right wallpaper could be all you need to put your design over the top.
Give a try to mix and match so that you can lessen the formality and your home won’t look like a restaurant. Blend different types of dinnerware or even furniture. You can use plain ones with printed ones. Or you can also combine dinnerware made of various materials. When you are using printed ones, the key is to use those with the same colors.
LIGHTING FOR DINNING
Lighting is one of the most crucial elements in the dining room design. It’s also one of the most fun. Lighting has been enjoying a real resurgence in the past few years, and design companies of all kinds are putting new, artistic spins on the light solution – especially those that feel right at home in the dining room. This space cleverly uses a cluster of pendant lights in various height with the same transparent and yellow light. The effect is stunning and provides light to the entire space while taking the entire look up a few notches.
WELL-CURATED DINING ROOM
Every dining room needs art. It’s the finishing touch that makes every room look like the well-curated, designer space that it is.
Those are some tips and tricks that you can try to refresh the look of your dining room.
