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.
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.
One thing you don’t want to do is buy pieces of furniture that are too big for the room. Keep your furniture scaled to the size of the room to avoid an overcrowding situation, or claustrophobic. A smaller dining room table will be functional as well as it can be a focal point of the room. Lighter color woods give the illusion that the room is bigger, as opposed to darker colored woods, which can visually, eat up the space.
If you don’t have a separate dining zone, take a look around your home. If the occasion demands, or you just feel like it, why not set up a temporary dining area in an underused space? Position a slimline table in a narrow corridor or hallway. Keep the space fuss-free and bring in furniture from other rooms or use pieces that can be folded away, stacked or moved around at a moment’s notice.
