If you find something you want, but it is name brand and out of your price range, that’s where copies or knock-offs come in handy. Chances are that on a budget, you probably will not have the money to purchase an original piece of wall art or décor items. Look for cheaper, less expensive replicas or knock-offs and it’s highly unlikely that anyone will ever know the difference.
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.
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.
You may want to consider leaving one wall as a focal wall, creating a distressed brick wall for an industrial look, or expose some brick areas on a couple dry wall, walls, as if the brick is coming through. Ceilings, and flooring are also ways to use rustic or industrial types of materials to enhance the feeling of being in a warehouse, barn, or other industrial environment. Wood flooring, or granite all work in an industrial dining room, and your ceiling might really complete the room with large wood beams or exposed piping.
