Having a place where you can host dinner parties, entertain your guests, and have family brunches is priceless. Dining rooms may come in different styles and sizes, but they all have one thing in common, their ability to bring people together.
If you feel like your dining room space is dull and needs an upgrade, the following steps will inspire you and help you make the necessary changes.
Make a Statement with Your Floors
The best way to completely change the appearance of a room is by changing the floors. Depending on your style and budget there are many options to choose from. Since this is a room where meals are served there are bound to be spills and stains so you will need a flooring option that is not only stylish but durable and easy to clean.
Bamboo flooring is an excellent option if you want to install new floors into your dining room. These are super easy to clean since they come with a 24-hour spill protection. What is more, bamboo is the hardest wood on the market which means it is very durable.
What is also great is that bamboo hardwood floors are:
- Versatile — they come in various colors and finishes to suit every space;
- Eco-friendly — made from a highly renewable material;
- Affordable — they come at a great value for your money.
With these, your dining room space is bound to make a statement. Let your luxury floors speak for themselves!
The easiest and probably most affordable way to upgrade your dining room is to purchase a unique dish set. Nowadays, they come in a variety of colors, patterns, materials, and shapes. It’s almost impossible to make a choice.
Our advice is to choose something that is durable and already matches the style of your dining room, be it modern, industrial, or traditional. Once you’ve made your decision, you will get tableware that draws everyone’s attention.
All of the Lights
We cannot stress enough the effect adequate lighting has on a dining room. Be wary of artificial light, because this is not a workspace. Make sure you get rid of those blinding lights! What you need is soft natural light or even candlelight that will be able to set the mood and create that cozy atmosphere you’ve always wanted.
Revamp Old Furniture
Instead of spending enormous amounts of money on dining room furniture, we have a more affordable option that is equally effective. Use your old furniture to your advantage, repaint it in a bold color, restain it with a different finish, add knobs, or decorative elements. We promise it will look as good as new, even better.
But, we won’t stop there, adding a decorative pillow or a cozy throw to your chairs will create that effortless layered look. Not only will this elevate the appearance of your dining room space, but it’s super comfortable, too!
Play with Colors
To banish all the dullness from your dining room, simply add pops of color here and there. Add a fresh coat of paint on the walls and watch your space transform. Make sure to select a color that goes with your exciting style or stick to neutrals like ivories, creams, and greys.
Most importantly, don’t get carried away! If you decide to create an accent wall, make sure all other colors in your living room are complementary. Otherwise, you will end up with a colorful disaster.
Open bars are excellent if you throw dinner parties on a regular basis, but incorporating one into your space is an enormous investment. Now, you do not need an open bar per se, you can always use a good old bar cart. These stylish pieces are finally making a grand comeback. Not only will they add a touch of vintage elegance to your space, but your guests will also be able to help themselves to a drink of their choice. What is more, open bars are a perfect place to add some accent pieces like colorful glasses or unique glass bottles.
How you choose to upgrade your dining room space will eventually affect your mood as well. Make sure it matches your personal preferences and style because at the end of the day everyone needs a space that brings them the utmost joy. We hope these tips will help you create that joyful dining room you’ve always wanted!
