Q. How do you design a dining room?
Dining and eating together have to be undoubtedly one of the most fulfilling activities you do in your home, and hence it becomes essential to design a dining room full of warmth and comfort. One can achieve the perfect dining room in just five easy steps. Create a separate dining space or a corner for your dining room essentials to go in. There should be enough room for movement and comfortable seating. Ensure there is adequate light. Light becomes extremely important, especially if you are the kind who hosts lots of brunches and dinners. Create visual contrast, it could be in the wall colors you pick or the dining table's material, and sometimes even the area rug you use to cover hard floors can do wonders. Find the perfect storage for all your glassware, napkins, and other dining supplies to go in. Choose wisely what you want to display and what needs to be inside the cabinet, and lastly, complete the room with a focal point that complements the space. It could be one large wall art or a centerpiece.
Q. What furniture goes in a dining room?
Did you know that a dining room is one of the easier rooms to decorate in the house. Dining table, dining chairs are the main pieces of furniture that go into the dining area. It can be as simple or stylish as you want depending on your decorating style. Keep in mind the size of the dining room before you make your purchase, because free movement and enough leg room while dining is underestimated. If you have dining chairs with arms, it should fit easily under the dining table when the chairs are pushed in. A minimum of 2 feet of space between your dining chairs and the walls of your dining room is another criteria to keep in mind. Another important piece of furniture that every dining room must have is a hutch to store your glassware, napkins and cutlery. Extra storage always goes a long way and you will never regret it.
Q. What should I put on my dining room wall?
There are plenty of ways to dress up your dining room wall. Remember how you decorate the wall can be a good conversation starter when you are hosting guests for dinner. You can either create a gallery wall with a mixed collection of art, or photographs. Large mirrors are a great idea too to open up the walls of the dining room and make it look bigger. A graphic wallpaper, vertical garden with faux wall mounted plants, plate collection or geometric shaped wall shelves are other ways to amplify the empty space on your wall.So go on and be creative with the kind of decor you choose for your dining room wall and have something beautiful to stare at while enjoying your meal.
Q. What are the best colors for the dining room?
What is a dining room without a little bit of drama and one way to create drama is through wall colors. The right color can change the entire vibe of the dining room. Colors have the power to influence the mood and the energy of the room. Shades of red go well if you are the kind of person that hosts a lot of brunches and dinners because it promotes social interaction keeping the vibe of the room energetic and upbeat. Then we have yellow which opens up the room, makes it look spacious and gives out the cheerful vibe. Turquoise is another excellent color for a dining room because it’s often associated with tranquility and calm. Most popular has been shades of green as this invokes a sense of freshness and makes people feel closer to nature. So all in all the right color can do wonders to your dining room and meal time experience.
Q. How can I make my dining room look elegant?
Dining rooms give you complete freedom to showcase your personality. One thing that most people get wrong is that elegant does not equate to expensive or costly. Elegant simply means a look that’s classy and put together whether you are spending more or less on the decor. The rule is to not always buy new things but to also mix it up with the things you already own giving it a more curated feel. Mix and match dining tables are definitely fun, but there is nothing like a matching set of traditional table and chairs. Including patterns in your dining room is another way, it could be patterns on the area rug, or patterns on your window curtains. Lighting plays an important role whether you are designing your dining room for large groups of people or small, intimate dinners. Ensure there is lots of natural light during the day and a statement light fixture hanging just above the dining table. An empty dining room wall can be quite a bummer, so spruce it up by creating a gallery wall, mounting faux plants or slap that muted toned floral wallpaper on. Lastly, you can express your love for nature with a large potted plant in the corner or a great centerpiece with lots of fresh flowers.
