While designing our homes, we often tend to get a bit carried away with how to spruce up our bedroom and living room, such that the dining room is often overlooked. What we fail to understand is that the decor of the dining room equally reflects our style and aesthetics.
But if you are keen on doing up your dining room here are some of the best tips.
Best tips to decorate dining room
1. Keep an eye on the lighting fixtures
No matter how stylish the decor of your dining room is, if the lighting isn’t apt, the room will look all dull and drab! If your house expects movie nights with friends or romantic dinners with your beau then keep the lighting dim. But if you do a lot of homework in your dining room then, install bulbs with greater watts.
An interesting hack is to layer the lightings so that you can adjust the brightness quotient accordingly. And don’t forget to let the good old sunrays come in!
2. Dining room with a table is just a room!
If your dining room has got all the great elements of decor and furnishings, except a table, then it is just another room! Opt for a table which will coordinate with the overall decor of your room and would also fit into space and your budget! Remember to keep enough space for at least two chairs even if you have limited space.
Do you want to know a hack for smaller dining rooms? Hunt out a cutesy and round dining table which will give a chic look to your room while fitting in comfortably into the small space.
3. Make the most of fresh plants and flowers
Who says flowers do not make the best statement in the dining room? Don’t hear them and adorn your dining place with any flowers or green plants of your choice. There would be nothing more beautiful than a beautiful floral arrangement placed in the center of the room in the middle of the dining table.
The scent of the flowers will keep your room aromatic while beautifying the decor.
4. Play with fun colors
Don’t go and pick out random colors for dishes, linens, and curtains for your dining place. Rather sit down for a while and then think about which theme you want to decorate your dining room. If you have a love for everything pop, then pick up brighter colors like blue, corals and even reds. On the other hand, if you want to set a sophisticated and posh theme, then gray and even black can be cooler colors to have fun with!
5. Choose the wall tones carefully
Walls play a major role in deciding the appearance of your dining room, so while choosing the shades, be practical and sensible. Always remember wall tones cannot be altered every day so to be on the safest side you can stick to more neutral tones and warmer tones.
So here are the best ideas for dining room decor. Of course, there are multitudes of other ways in which you can experiment and make it look really interesting.
