Have you ever gone to someones house and the living room is so gorgeous but the dining is just blah. Why are dining rooms always overlooked. Don’t people eat together anymore? Maybe it’s time to do something to your dining room to make it more inviting so your family and friends can come together over a good meal? Am sharing a few ideas to turn your space from drab to fab.
CONTEMPORARY DINING TABLE
We are so used to dining tables made entirely of wood. Which is great but if you want something chic or modern try to get a glass one. This glass top is so thick and doesn’t easily scratch. It’s also easy to clean and makes the room pop. I love going on OLX to find some good used furniture. I found this table for 15,000 and it was barely used. You might want to start there if you are on a budget. I suggest taking your time to find the right table, this is what makes or breaks your entire dining room design.
NAILHEAD TRIM DINING CHAIRS
For chairs I suggest you have them custom made. Most furniture stores sell the table and seats in a set and the chairs are usually so boring (at least to me). I had these ones custom made for the table, a bit costly but worth it. I chose brown because it matches all the doors and book shelves in the house. Just wanted to have a cohesive look from room to room. The nailhead trim just adds that wow factor.
I live for art and plants, I feel like they instantly take a room from drab to fab. They are the perfect accessory to any space. I got this abstract art because first of all it fits this wall so perfectly. It also has bright colors to lighten up the mood. I feel like abstract art is so subjective and is not for everyone. That is because it’s hard to interpret and for me this one makes me feel alive , but to someone else it might make them feel lost and confused. Oh well…find what works for you.
Did you know, yellow flowers burst with happiness. They symbolize the bonds of friendship, the taste of success and pride. Joy is one of the feelings the color is said to evoke. (OK I kinda got that from google) but you get what I mean. Get some faux flowers for your table and when you have guests you can just switch them up with real ones. Also a clear vase always look so pretty.
PENDANT LIGHT FIXTURE
When is the last time you upgraded your dining room lighting? You might want to start at Nakumatt, so many options. Adding a light fixture creates an instant focal point, drawing you to the table for family dinners. Pendants are always a statement piece.
You’ve made it to the end of this post, that’s if you didn’t just scroll through. Frame your windows with new drapes like these navy blue ones to lift the look of the room. Lastly I added the carpet which is optional. However when you use one it will make a big difference to the room. It’s all about details, when shopping for your dining room decor.
