Visually expand a small dining room by using a monochromatic palette. Keep the walls and floor clutter-free and minimal, letting the personality come in the form of cleverly designed furniture. Purchase a round table with chairs that can be tucked in when not in use. There are no corner legs to wiggle around and it can be moved about easily when needed. Before buying, consider what size table your space will accommodate, your ideal size (circular or oval) and which material will best complement your current scheme. Ease of use is important, too, and do think about what you’ll do with seating when it’s not being used – fold-up or stacking chairs are great options.
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.
Vintage style mid-century style is still alive and well, and homeowners are donning the look in their homes, from their bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, and dining rooms. It doesn’t really matter where you decide to incorporate the modern look of the mid-century décor, it is classy, and it is classic. One thing that many people love about the style is the simple, clean lines. This simplistic look is great for those who like less clutter, simplistic designs, and the wide range of what you can do with this look. For those who of you have always loved the look of the older era, but want a fresh new spin on the vintage style, incorporating modern pieces into the mix is a great way to bring the old, into the new so that it represents a more updated version of the 1950’s. For ideas on how to design your own mid-century, modern dining room, you can start with a few ideas of how to pick and choose color schemes, what types of pieces of furniture fit best in this décor style, and what types of pieces you can mix and match to create a balanced look through the two styles of mid-century and modern.
The 1950’s was a time when dark rich and robust colors were abundant in homes. Dark yellows or golden tones, saturated browns greens, oranges and other neutral tones, such as deep browns. So many of these colors were used in combination for a colorful display on patterned furniture, rugs, draperies and wall colors. Wallpaper was also a big trend for the 50’s, so if you prefer to create a focal wall of vintage style wallpaper, that will give you a starting point to lead you to where you want to take your décor theme for the rest of the room.
