Don’t forget to look up! The ceiling is a great place to explore a bold paint color or a bit of wallpaper, or for adding an element of architecture like ceiling medallions. In addition to dressing up the space, a darker color can create the sense of depth, making the room appear larger.
Not everything in your dining room has to be brand new and have a hefty price tag attached. There are other options to look at when it comes to finding furniture pieces that are much more reasonable. If you know what type of piece you, look for a resale piece instead of at a store. You can find good deals on resale furniture items by looking in your local paper for moving or estate sales. There are also yard sales online, or bigger sites that list furniture pieces for much cheaper than retail. You can find some real bargains when you buy resale. You may have to look a little harder or longer, but if you are patient, the right piece for the right price will come along.
One way to create a unique look is to mix and match pieces of furniture. Throw a couple of contemporary styled chairs into the room to mix with the modern pieces, or vice versa. At the dining table, use a combination of clean-lined dining chairs with thick rattan, straight-backed chairs to get a well-rounded mixture of both designs. A weathered wood table with a beautiful transitional style chandelier overhead, paired with a modern dining buffet gives the room an elemental feel.
If your small dining area is tucked away in a corner, give it an instant update with a theme. Include flourishes of colour in accessories, soft furnishings and wall art to give the space its own character. Set against a white backdrop, a chestnut table brings a traditional, homely touch to the corner. Incorporate a bench, which can be neatly tucked underneath when not in use. It is also a great option for when you need to seat more than two people.
