The dining room doesn’t have to be boring, especially since it’s one of the most frequented rooms in the entire house. Rather than replacing everything in the room, try some of these simple design tips which will always make it feel modern and fresh.
Hang a few of your favourite pieces of art on the walls. Make sure it’s something that fits into the colour scheme of the room and place it in an area that everyone will notice.
Mirrors make any room feel larger, especially the dining room which is often small and cramped. Choose a fun mosaic piece that is quirky and can also be made at home!
Since natural lighting in the dining room can often feel quite dark due to the lack of windows, make sure to pass on the chandeliers. They don’t give off much light and will actually weigh down the entire room. Downlights are a contemporary favourite that are also really easy to adjust for any occasion.
Bring a pop of colour to any dining room with a vase of flowers or pot plant to make it look homely. Just don’t forget to trim and water your plants!
Update your dining room with a few candles to make the perfect centrepiece during more important events. Save those scented candles for the bedroom or the bathroom!
If you’re hosting a large dinner party, a buffet table is a great investment to make since it can store all of the food. Then, guests can go around the table and serve themselves with ease.
