You can mix and match so easily with this design, such as old, industrial style metal chairs combined with a sleek modern table. A modern metal bookshelf on a far wall, painted a modern green, is one way to combine an industrial look with the modern, and get even more creative with lighting over your table. Mix and match drop lights that hang over the table, perhaps and old rustic barn lamp combined with a couple more modern styled drop lights.
Lighting is important, and finding the perfect chandelier and other lighting options can help to make or break the look of the room. You want your lighting to not only be beautiful, but functional, and for many people, they want their light fixtures to be a sort of work of art. Look for unique modern beauties for your main chandelier. Many modern lighting fixtures fit into the mid-century era and they can be phenomenal. Just make sure you choose something that is scaled to your room and table size. Keep in mind, this is not a strict, must-match era, so you do not have to worry so much with making your table lamps perfectly coordinate with your chandelier or wall lights. Have fun. Be creative. And choose your light according to what really speaks to you.
Few of us have the luxury of a separate dining room these days, but however limited space might be it’s important to incorporate storage into your scheme wherever you can. Build a low-level, storage bench – it may take up a little floor space, but it will declutter and streamline your space while providing extra seating should you require it. If you can, have it made to match the rest of your furniture for a scheme that is cohesive and considered. Using low-level storage will also free up wall space – display a collection of framed prints that will add character and interest.
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.
