ADD BIG POTTED PLANTS

Fresh greenery is a wonderful way to revive the dining room. A large potted plant like a ficus, split-leaf philodendron, rubber plant or fiddle leaf fig cleans the air, adds height and drama and can make your space feel bigger to boot.

LAYER ARTWORK ON A SHELF

Not ready to commit to a permanent art display? An art shelf is casual and easily changed, making it perfect for tweaking a collection with the seasons. To focus attention on the art, hang gallery lighting on the wall above the shelf.

PAINT THE WALLS A RICH COLOR

Since you probably spend less time in the dining room than in the kitchen or living room, it makes sense to go a little bolder here. Look for a color that’s strong but not overpowering, like deep green, mocha or espresso.

GO ECLECTIC

Coordinating every element in your dining room can get costly. Don’t be afraid to use eclectic design to mix and match various styles, manufactures, even time periods. Doing allows for more freedom to put a design together that works in your budget.

ADD AN ACCENT WALL

Whether you paint a wall a bold new color, or opt for a modern take on wallpaper, adding an accent wall will instantly refresh the look of your dining space. Don’t be afraid to make a statement: accent walls are meant to be eye-catching!

REPLACE THE LIGHT FIXTURE

A statement-making light fixture can completely transform the look and feel of a dining room. Try a woven pendant with textural appeal, an on-trend filament-bulb chandelier or a classic glass lantern.

ADD CUSHIONS OR THROWS

In the colder months, we crave extra softness and comfort. Make your guests want to linger at the table with the addition of soft throws or seat cushions. Try faux sheepskins, plaid blankets, or felt or velvet cushions.

DON’T FORGET ACCESSORIES

Accessorizing a room is like putting the cherry on top of a sundae. It makes all the difference. No need to go crazy, but adding a few finishing touches goes a long way.

GET THE RIGHT SIZE RUG

At least 24 inches on each side of the table is what you should aim for. Anything less and chairs can catch when pulled out and the space will look smaller. A properly sized rug can bring warmth and comfort to a dining room like nothing else.

SWAP OUT CHAIR FOR BENCH

A bench, especially a cushy upholstered version provides more comfort and room for sitting than a pair of chairs. If you’ve been wanting to break up a matched dining set, this is one simple way to do it.
